What you'll do

We will all meet with the naturalist guide at 7:30 am at Rainforest Café in La Fortuna or we will pick you up at your hotel if you are near the town. From here we move for about 30 minutes to the northwest side of the Arenal Volcano where the Hanging Bridges of Mystic are located. This place is a paradise of primary forest and with a path of almost 2 miles on the mountain that passes through 15 bridges, some long and hanging and others short and stable. Incredible panoramic views and lots of animals and plants will enchant us. After spending the morning there and being almost half a day, we will go to the southeast side of the volcano to visit the famous La Fortuna Waterfall; a magnificent drop of water over 65 meters high. When we arrive, we first have to go down 480 steps to the base of the waterfall and those who like it can submerge in its cold waters to cool off a bit. As it is at noon, it is usually sunny and directly on the river canyon. Following our experience, we will go up and have a delicious typical lunch at the Rio Lounge restaurant, located in the same place. After lunch we move to the northwest of the Arenal Volcano for a walk on the El Silencio Trail for 2 hours which reaches the base of the volcano where there is a spectacular viewpoint. This trail is great to see animals from the area.
