SPOTLIGHT

Costa Rica’s Fiery Giant

To say Arenal is a big volcano would be the understatement of all understatements. Taking up 12 square miles and topping out at over 5,200 feet in altitude, Arenal is gargantuan.

LAKE ARENAL & ARENAL VOLCANO

Take in the Majesty of Arenal Volcano

Located about four miles from the quaint hamlet of La Fortuna, Alajuela, Arenal is one of the most visited attractions in the country. Its main draw is that it has been an active volcano since the late sixties, yet there is so much more it and its surrounding area have to offer. 

The area encircling the lava-spewing mountain offers landscapes as different as night and day. One part lush forest habitat and one part moonscape left barren by the constant eruption and lava flow, Arenal is truly a sight to behold. The geothermal energy from the volcano contributes to the tourism trade as well by providing heat to the 12 nearby swimmable hot springs in the Arenal/La Fortuna area.

Experience all that Arenal Has to Offer

The Arenal/La Fortuna area is a nature lover’s paradise with its protected nature refuges, the beautiful Lake Arenal, and the many rivers and waterfalls that call the area home. Take in a tour highlighting the vast biodiversity while seeing for the first time exotic birds, reptiles, and mammals the likes you have never seen. 

The tour companies in this region take particular care to ensure the sustainability of tourism, offering the opportunity to commune with nature as it is through adventure activities such as nature watching, canyoning, and ziplining.

As a part of the Sarapiquí Canton, the region is widely recognized as an invaluable font of knowledge about Costa Rica’s biodiversity and is seriously protected due to it being one of the last refuges for endangered species such as the Great Green Macaw.
