Spend a day immersed in the geologic wonders and relaxing hot springs of Arenal. After morning pickup at your Guanacaste hotel, ride in a comfortable air-conditioned coach and enjoy a provided breakfast en route to Arenal Volcano National Park. Join your knowledgeable guide on a leisurely hike around the base of the volcano, which emits a steady stream of smoke, ash and lava. Rest assured that trails are carefully chosen for visitor safety.

Trek across open expanses of lava fields formed from previous eruptions and learn about the geologic history of this seismic wonder. Make your way through the lush greenery of the surrounding forest, where your guide will help you spot interesting plant species and native wildlife. Admire panoramic views of the volcano from a distance, and look for signs of activity shooting out of its crater.

Relax after your hike with a therapeutic soak at nearby Baldi Hot Springs. This family-friendly spa boasts 25 thermal pools of varying temperatures surrounded by beautiful tropical scenery. There’s something for everyone, including a swim-up bar, waterfall pools, a kids’ area with a splash zone and several exciting water slides.

Great nature hike and hot springs visit!

We were picked up at our resort on time on the morning of our travel. Our tour guide was amazing! He drove us to breakfast at a restaurant with a beautiful view over the lake. We then traveled to the Arenal Volcano park. The hike lasted about 2 hours but it was very educational and fun! It was not a difficult hike at all, but we did get rained on a fair amount—it was expected since we hiked in the rain forest, but future guests should definitely pack a rain coat or poncho. After the hike, we were taken to the hot springs, which were so relaxing and enjoyable. Our tour guide was so nice—he also pointed out many different locations/animals/trees/etc along our journey. Our group consisted of 3 friends in their early 30’s and we loved this tour. We were excited to see many bird species, vipers, poisonous frogs, and a sloth! Definitely recommend this tour—you do spend several hours in a private van on roads that can be curvy, so pack some motion-sickness drugs if you are sensitive to this. Overall, this was a great experience that I would definitely recommend!

This was by far the best trip that we took during our stay in Costa Rica. The tour guid was friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain things about culture and the surrounding areas. If you do any execution this should for sure be the one.

Bit of a ride from the Tamarindo area and the roads are windy, but so worth it. Beautiful area. Our guide, Jose from Central American tours was top notch and spotted a lot of wild life during the hanging bridges tour. We even stopped on the side of the road and got to see three sloths! Highly recommended!

Outstanding. We had a nice small group which was helpful for getting the max out of our guide Jose’s depth of knowledge. Breakfast was delicious and from a stunning view of Lake Arenal. The hole through the rainforest that followed was fascinating and helped immensely by our eagle eyed guide. Lunch was great and could not have had a better view of the volcano. A long day of travel but the trip description had us well prepared for this. Hot springs were a nice visit.
