The Arenal Volcano of Costa Rica is located in the district of La Fortuna, canton of San Carlos, in the province of Alajuela. It has a height of 1,670 meters above sea level. The volcano is inside the Arenal Volcano National Park. He began his last and current period of activity in 1968, on July 29 at 7:30. From that date, it constantly emits gases and vapors of water, with some explosions with emission of pyroclastic materials and sometimes strong rumblings. Because of this and its frequent activity, this volcano is the most active in Costa Rica.

El Arenal is a stratovolcano of conical shape, located about 8 km from La Fortuna. It has an area of 33 km2. It is distinguishable from considerable distance. It can be seen from different towns in the San Carlos canton such as Aguas Zarcas, Pocosol, La Fortuna, La Palmera, Cutris, Venado, Florence and even Ciudad Quesada, and cantons such as Guatuso and Los Chiles. Geologically it belongs to the Sierra de Tilarán and the nearby Chato volcano is considered as its brother.

    Excursión al volcán Arenal, tour por el bosque nuboso y estancia en el balneario de aguas termales Los Laurales Una gran experiencia…todo resultó perfecto…solo nosotros en una furgoneta espaciosa, limpia y muy confortable que hacen que el viaje, que es largo, se haga más llevadero Las diferentes vistas del volcán y la ruta a pie por el bosque nuboso con sus puentes colgantes de la mano de nuestro conductor y guía Arturo Gamboa nos dejaron un recuerdo inolvidable Antes de llegar a Arenal hicimos paradas en Atenas (iglesia completamente metálica) y en Sorchi (taller de madera que fabrican carretas tradicionales de café) Arturo nos atendió a la perfección y pudimos disfrutar de sus 30 años de experiencia a la hora de realizar toda la excursión Acabar el día antes de regresar a San José dándose unos baños relajantes en las diferentes piscinas de aguas termales naturales de Los Laureles fue el perfecto final NOTA PARA TRIP ADVISOR: El titulo de la excursión en Español que aparece en el desplegable es "novias colgantes" (sic) cuando debería ser "puentes colgantes"...suena a una mal uso de la palabra en ingles Bride por Bridge y su traduccion al español

    This tour guide was great! we really enjoyed our time with George, he is full of knowledge and paid great attention to anything going on around you. The hiking portion is tiring! so be sure to eat before and be prepared for both the humid heat with a light raincoat for possible rain. The hanging bridges portion is great also as the views are like no other place.

    My partner and I had a great day on this tour. Freddy picked us up promptly at our hotel and then we drove out to La Fortuna. Because of Covid, many restaurants and shops are not open, but for the most part we were able to do everything we wanted. The hiking at the Arenal Volcano takes around 2 hours, however the humidity snuck up on us so make sure to bring comfortable clothes and a rain jacket in case there is a surprise shower. The hanging bridges park was really neat, very beautiful and scenic and you are able to see local wildlife on the walk. Overall, this is an active tour (I used my Health app to track and we hiked around 7 miles!) so make sure to bring proper clothes, shoes, water, etc. Thank you Freddy!

    Our tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate about his county and fun to be with. We had a good time. We are early to mid 30s guys. The food at the restaurant was good too. The hikes weren't too bad. Probably on the easy side. We went on a Monday and our tour guide was late though. Not his fault and we don't hold it against him and his company. Traffic was bad. Probably 1.5 hour late. We didn't get the free water bottle too but we brought water of our own. Just a heads up to future travelers and the company to keep in mind. Hope this helps.

    The hanging bridges was the best part of this trip for sure. Skip the Arenal Volcano hike as nothing special just a normal hike through the jungle, unless you are looking to grab some great pics of really cool old trees. The best part of the hike was we got very lucky with our great tour guide and the other guests who booked the trip as they were extremely friendly.
