Rest assured that trails are carefully chosen for visitor safety.

Trek across open expanses of lava fields formed from previous eruptions and learn about the geologic history of this seismic wonder. Make your way through the lush greenery of the surrounding forest, where your guide will help you spot interesting plant species and native wildlife. Admire panoramic views of the volcano from a distance, and look for signs of activity shooting out of its crater.

Relax after your hike with a therapeutic soak at nearby Baldi Hot Springs. This family-friendly spa boasts 25 thermal pools of varying temperatures surrounded by beautiful tropical scenery. There’s something for everyone, including a swim-up bar, waterfall pools, a kids’ area with a splash zone and several exciting water slides. When hunger strikes, enjoy lunch (included) at the on-site restaurant.

Amazing rainforest and great location for hot springs.
, Nov. 2021
Amazing time in rain forest and walking the suspension bridges. Guide was excellent and gave us an overview of mother nature and how the forest sustains itself.
Amazing tour!
, Oct. 2021
Awesome tour! Jose, you’re the man!! You were so very knowledgeable about every single thing and very detailed. We were very, very satisfied. Thanks for taking the time to give us an education about nature and how we Should be more responsible as human beings. Hot springs were good also, so many different pool options. The breakfast was amazing, with amazing views! We had a great time! Long day, but worth it!
Great hike

Manny was an amazing guide and I really enjoyed spending the day with him. I had contacted the company about another tour and spoke with Ana through email. She was very pleasant and quick to respond. Thank you both so much!!

Great nature hike and hot springs visit!
, May 2021
We were picked up at our resort on time on the morning of our travel. Our tour guide was amazing! He drove us to breakfast at a restaurant with a beautiful view over the lake. We then traveled to the Arenal Volcano park. The hike lasted about 2 hours but it was very educational and fun! It was not a difficult hike at all, but we did get rained on a fair amount—it was expected since we hiked in the rain forest, but future guests should definitely pack a rain coat or poncho. After the hike, we were taken to the hot springs, which were so relaxing and enjoyable. Our tour guide was so nice—he also pointed out many different locations/animals/trees/etc along our journey. Our group consisted of 3 friends in their early 30’s and we loved this tour. We were excited to see many bird species, vipers, poisonous frogs, and a sloth! Definitely recommend this tour—you do spend several hours in a private van on roads that can be curvy, so pack some motion-sickness drugs if you are sensitive to this. Overall, this was a great experience that I would definitely recommend!

Amazing day
, Apr. 2021
This was by far the best trip that we took during our stay in Costa Rica. The tour guid was friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain things about culture and the surrounding areas. If you do any execution this should for sure be the one.

Excellent scenic tour
, Mar. 2020
Bit of a ride from the Tamarindo area and the roads are windy, but so worth it. Beautiful area. Our guide, Jose from Central American tours was top notch and spotted a lot of wild life during the hanging bridges tour. We even stopped on the side of the road and got to see three sloths! Highly recommended!
Worth it! Great adventure
, Mar. 2020
this tour was a full 12 hour day! The tour guide, Jose, was educated, knowledgeable and very engaging. I would highly recommend this tour!
Hot Springs - don't miss 'em!
, Feb. 2020
Wonderful day! Great, small group. I went alone and the other four people were a group but were so friendly. The guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and really accommodating for everyone's needs to/from the destination. The highlight was the hot springs, a wonderful, relaxing place!
