Positioned within Costa Rica’s fertile northern lowlands, the Arenal Volcano is one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica. 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.
Arenal is Costa Rica’s best-known volcano. It’s a stratovolcano – a large, symmetrical volcano that’s built upon layers of ash, rock and lava – and at 5,437 feet (1,657 meters), it stands high above the rest of the countryside.
With access to the rainforest, waterfalls, a volcano, the country’s largest lake, and a diverse selection of hotels, it’s no wonder Arenal has become the adventure capital of Costa Rica.

Class 2-3 White Water Rafting Balsa River and Canopy Ziplining

The first cable is only 25 meters long, intended to help you feel comfortable with your gear and get you ready to enjoy the rest of the cables of this adventure sport. The thrill of the zip increases from cable to cable until you arrive to cable number 12. This is the longest cable and is an exciting 430 meters long -- that's over 1,200 feet long!
Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to do a unique and exciting Tarzan Swing!

You’ll finish off this fun-filled day with a delicious traditional lunch at a charming rural location. Two of the best adventure activities in the Arenal, La Fortuna area.

Start off the rappelling part of your adventure with the first waterfall referred to as the “Baby” -- a small, 10ft waterfall that allows you to practice and ease your way into learning the ropes - literally!
Then hike deep into the rocky terrain of the wet and wild rainforest, surrounded by huge rocks, trees, and flowing streams. You’ll soon reach the “Big Boy” - the second largest waterfall. Imagine this: there you are, on a sturdy platform looking down into the depths of a massive 150-ft tropical waterfall. You’ll start off by rappelling down the rock face and about half way through you’ll hear “LET GO!” – a few moments later you’ll have experienced your first guided, adrenaline pumping free fall! This is when you will realize that this really is an experience of a lifetime!
Mountain Bike Trail along Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano on country backroads
Biking in Costa Rica is a great way to experience its amazing natural features such as tranquil countrysides, rolling green hills, vibrant forests and adventurous mountain trails.
This Costa Rica mountain bike trip takes you on a trail that runs through farmlands, close to the jungle, across rivers and along the base of the Arenal Volcano.
You'll feel like you're walking on water as you cross Lake Arenal from one side to the next! If you're a first-timer, no worries! This activity is perfect for all adventure enthusiasts!
Venture to Costa Rica's largest lake and hop onboard on our private boat. The mountains that surround the lake are different shades of green, as some are in the foreground while the others fade into the distance. At first, the Arenal Volcano seems like it is hidden behind mountains, but if you get to a certain part in the lake you’ve reached the sweet spot – a spot where you can see the detailed textures of its rock formation and be passing in front of it can make you feel tiny.
The ride takes about 45 minutes and is accompanied by the sounds of rainforest birds and the La Fortuna Waterfall River. It is possible, with a bit of luck, to spot toucans, monkeys, peccaries, coatis, and more.
Once you arrive at the entrance of the 75 meter (246 ft) tall La Fortuna Waterfall, the horses are left behind so you can enjoy the great views from the lookout. After a short rest and some water, you will take a 20 minute walk down to the La Fortuna River — passing a suspension bridge of 20 meters (66 ft) — until you reach the bottom of the canyon. When you arrive, you can relax and swim in the cool waters of the La Fortuna River for about 30 minutes.
After enjoying the refreshing waters, the walk back to the top starts; you will enjoy a snack when you return to the lookout.
