ARENAL VOLCANO & COTER RAINFOREST
Leaving the hotel early in the morning, you'll enjoy the gorgeous landscapes that surround Lake Arenal before arriving at Coter Forest Reserve. There, you'll take a relaxing walk with a naturalist guide, who will offer the perfect introduction to our tropical forests.
Along the path you'll be able to spot and learn about different types of trees and the rich flora that comprise these forests. After the walk, you'll enjoy a delicious lunch in the Ecolodge.
In the afternoon, you'll continue to the Tabacon hot springs, where you can bathe in thermal waters set amid manicured tropical gardens. Imposing Arenal Volcano looms in the background, keeping everyone's attention by offering frequent eruptions. Early in the evening you'll start heading back to Guanacaste.
Arenal Volcano is an active andesitic (meaning that the rock has been crystallized from silicate minerals) stratovolcano in north-western Costa Rica, where Arenal is the youngest and most active of all the mountains. It was presumed extinct until July 29, 1968 when an earthquake caused it to erupt, after approximately 400 years of dormancy.
Arenal rises 1657 m above sea level and overlooks Lake Arenal; both are part of Arenal Volcano National Park.
Includes Air-conditioned transportation, bilingual guide, entrance to the hot springs, lunch and dinner.
