See the best of La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano area in just one day with this tour. Start with a hike along the La Fortuna River, continuing to a suspension bridge tucked deep into the jungle. Then walk to a local indigenous village followed by a traditional lunch. In the afternoon, visit the Arenal Volcano for more hiking before wrapping your day up with a soak in a natural thermal river.

La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica22 contributions5 helpful votes
We took the trail to the lava fields with an infant and a toddler. Took a jogging stroller and were able to make it all the way to the stairs. Had to lift it above some boulders but otherwise the trail is easy and smooth. Lovely view of the volcano on a clear day with the lake behind you. Go across the street from the National park entrance to go out on the peninsula. This is a paved walk, a bit steeper, and included in your admission ticket ($15 pp). Go up the tower for a SPECTACULAR view of the volcano and the lake. Then walk down to the water where there are benches and water access. If you have to choose between the lava fields and the peninsula, do the peninsula. The view is much better.

Excellent.. worth it. Even better if you have access to a Mtn Bike as the trails are world class.. I even saw a Jaguarundi (Central American Mountain Lion) on my ride... Great hike with teh family... keep eyes open to see Tucans, Ant Eaters, Sloths, tree-prcupines...

We did the shorter hike, which took about 1.5 hours. It was a great trail, rocky and steep in some sections but doable for all ages. The highlight was the restaurant at the end of the hike above the parking lot/entry point. Surprisingly wonderful food and drinks, and an even better staff. Shout out to Raul, Caesar and Yoshi- they treated us so well!

Great trail through the forest, across the lava fields and then back. Very safe, spectacular views. Most of the hike is under the cover of the forest, but when not in the shade, you have the incredible views of the volcano. Great visitors station too!
