Arenal Volcano National Park


Introducing Arenal Volcano National Park

Set out from your boutique hotel to explore the region’s natural landmark, Arenal Volcano. Or take a tranquil river tour along the edge of the forest, keeping your eyes peeled for sloths and tiny capuchin monkeys. Explore the local town of La Fortuna, a lively, welcoming base for exploring some of Costa Rica’s most spectacular scenery.

Things to do

Your exclusive retreat in Arenal Volcano National Park makes a luxurious base for discovering the astounding Arenal Volcano region. Take a guided tour or private flight over the dormant crater, surrounded by hot springs that still bubble away. The nearby rainforests are a wildlife watcher’s dream, with colourful toucans and jewel bright butterflies.

Overlooked by a volcano, it’s no surprise that Arenal Volcano National Park boasts a number of hot springs. Indulge yourself with a day at a natural spa, where you could complement a swim in a thermal pool with a rejuvenating beauty treatment or massage. Or retreat to the exclusive spa in your luxury hotel, and be pampered as you gaze out over the rainforest canopy.

There’s no shortage of sports and activities around Arenal Volcano National Park. Canoe along tranquil rainforest waterways to watch birds and wildlife. Kids and adults alike can get up close to the region’s cascading waterfalls on a canyoning adventure. Or you could get a different perspective on the Arenal Volcano with an adrenalin-fuelled bungee jump.
