You’ve heard Costa Rica was paradise, filled with miles upon miles of tropical rainforests begging to be explored, seemingly untouched by the world. Now it's your chance to discover it for yourself with an Arenal Volcano and rainforest tour through vast jungle paths and along some beautiful scenery. This full-day excursion also includes lunch.
Prepare for stunning views surrounding a volcano
Your Arenal Volcano and rainforest tour begins with an air-conditioned ride from your Guanacaste resort, during which you’ll be taking in stunning views of the rainforest. You’ll arrive to the Arenal Tilaran Conservation Area, a 790-square-mile national park that’s home to alluring flora and fauna. The star of this tour is, of course, the still active Arenal Volcano, which last erupted in 1968 and continues to tower over the gorgeous landscape of northern Costa Rica.
Explore jungles and volcanic hot springs
Expert bilingual guides will greet you and prepare you for the hike, which begins at the foothills of the volcano. Passing through the conservation area, you’ll also make your way toward incredible views of the towering volcano and the greenery of the area that’s dubbed ‘The Jewel of the Earth’. As you continue your trek in the park, you can encounter 850 different bird species, as well as fauna like Capuchin monkeys, jaguars, coati raccoons, tapir hogs, and even serpents like the parrot snake. Continue your hike toward natural hot springs near a calm waterfall, where you’re welcome to take a well-earned dip and relax after all the walking.

"We had a great time on our trip to Costa Rica in January. We stayed at the Dreams Las Mareas and Adrian, our friendly Amstar representative, recommended us to do the guided tour to the Arenal volcano. Since it´s a long drive we hesitated a bit before booking, but the nature and the impressive scenery of the Arenal volcano in Guanacaste were worth it. Visiting the volcano is definitely one of the things you must do when traveling to Costa Rica."
