Admire the 7,000-year-old Arenal Volcano and relax in Costa Rica's famous hot springs.
Arenal Volcano & Hot Springs Tour
After picking you up from your hotel in San José, we'll set off on our trip to the Arenal Volcano. We'll make a stop on the way to visit the city of Sarchí, the birthplace of Costa Rican handicrafts. We'll admire the array of colourful wooden objects that are made there.
After this stop, we'll drive past the main pineapple, mango and flower plantations until arriving at the entrance of the Arenal volcano located in the city of La Fortuna.
Before climbing the volcano, we'll enjoy a meal in a traditional restaurant in the area. The menu includes rice, beans, salad, meat (chicken, fish or pork), mince, plantain and juice.
We'll head to the Arenal Volcano National Park to admire its magnificent volcano. This 1,670-metre high volcano began activity on 29th July 1968 and currently still produces gases and water vapour, making it the most active volcano in Costa Rica.
If we're lucky, we may see some of the area's animal species such as the white-faced capuchin, sloths or jaguars.
After our walk around one of the most famous volcanoes in the world, we'll enjoy a relaxing bath in the hot springs.
Our trip will end with a buffet dinner consisting of rice, beans, two types of meat, salad, dessert and juice. If you want a vegetarian or gluten-free menu, you must specify this when you book.
After dinner, we'll take you back to the hotels in San José.
When you book you'll have to choose between the Baldi or Tabacon hot springs:
Baldi Hot Springs
We'll enjoy a relaxing bath in the Baldi Hot Springs, water pools originating from the Arenal Volcano that offer multiple health benefits. The hot springs are surrounded by lush tropical gardens that take us to paradise.
There are also swimming pools with slides for young children.
Tabacon Hot Springs
Get lost in these pools of water heated by the magma of the Arenal Volcano. As we bathe we'll admire the famous Tabacon River and its impressive waterfalls.
If you're feeling daring you can take a dip in the other pools with different temperatures and water flows.
