What a destination this is! Positioned within Costa Rica's fertile northern lowlands, the Arenal Volcano is an unavoidable presence while travelling within this part of the country. It is tall and imposing and has a reputation that precedes itself. Arenal's perfectly symmetrical shape makes it a sightseer's dream, while its abundance of outdoor activities makes it an easy place to check things off your "must-do in Costa Rica" list.
The volcano recently entered into an indeterminate resting phase for lava activity. So for the time being, visitors will be unable to watch the much-loved explosions but this isn't all the area has to offer! There are mountains to be hiked, biked or explored by horse. There are lakes to be fished and rivers to be rafted as well as a wealth of rainforest to be explored on foot to spot a wide range of beautiful wildlife or fly through the canopy on zip-lines or more sedate cable cars. Once you have tired yourself out with all this excitement you can relax in one of the many naturally occurring hot springs with a cocktail in hand!
