Do you really love hiking trails? We have combined three of the best hikes in Arenal into one nature-packed tour.


The tour will begin at the hanging bridges. This adventure consists of a 3 km (2 mile) circuit trail that will allow you to enjoy the flora and fauna of the rainforest. You will cross 10 fixed and 6 hanging bridges at varying heights. The trail has a maximum incline of 7%, with no stairs. It is covered in slip-resistant concrete and has safety railings, so that you can walk easily and feel safe among the heights. Our next stop is the La Fortuna Waterfall. This will include a hike down to the base of the majestic waterfall, about a 15-minute walk. Once we reach the bottom, you can choose to take a refreshing swim or just relax and take in the natural beauty of the area. Next, we will head to “La Finquita” Restaurant for a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch. After lunch, you will have the opportunity for a bit of rest, before we begin our hike of the Arenal Volcano trails, where we cross the rainforest jungle and the solidified lava trails from the powerful eruption of 1968. You will discover a variety of plants, fauna, and amazing rock formations. At the top of the trail, we will have an amazing view of Lake Arenal.

      Our guide Hellen was delightful and very informative. We saw many different wildlife at the hanging bridges, followed by a wonderful cooling swim at the waterfall. The entire day was amazing. The fruit snack was yummy. The attention to detail and the service is high quality. The lunch was delicious in an open air setting.

      We had a wonderful time during this all day adventure with Alonso and Roberto (our driver). Alonso was very knowledgeable about the wildlife around us and helped us spot animals we would have never seen otherwise. The waterfall was amazing, the lunch serviced was the BEST we had on our trip, and the Volcano hike ended at sunset, which was the perfect finish to our day. I must do in La Fortuna!

      We were at the hanging bridges in the morning and the rainforest was beautiful. Our tour guide was great at spotting wild life, we saw snakes, birds, bats, and lizards. The waterfall was really pretty as well. Overall, our tour guide was knowledgeable and it was a good experience!

      Diego was in my opinion the most talented guide we had. He knows the area and could spot the tiniest of wonders like the poison dart frog. I would have missed the camouflaged sloughs and birds if not for his expert eye. Jacamar tours provide clean safe vans and experienced drivers and guides. Great adventure.

      Absolutely stunning views and experiences! The driver was ready to go at each point waiting to take us to the next adventure. The guide was very knowledgeable about Costa Rica, the area, food, animals on their natural habitat, and country. Stevenson made it to be an incredible experience!

      We were an adult family of 6. We had a fantastic time. Nelson our tour guide was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We went to Mistico Park and saw lots of animals and the hanging bridges. Then we went to La Fortuna waterfall which was energizing! Then we hiked a trail at Arenal Volcano. The view at the summit was of Lake Arenal and it was stunning. We had a wonderful day and highly recommend this tour company.

      Wow. I cannot say enough good things about Jacamar and their guides. Highly, highly recommend them. The depth and breadth of each of the guide's knowledge is astonishing. They fielded any and all questions about the landscape, animals, plants, culture, and history. We specifically wanted to see lots of new birds and they each went above and beyond with helping to identify species and providing education. It was interesting to learn that Costa Rica has a rigorous certification program for guides, which also requires continuing education. If you have any hesitation that doing a tour with a guide is too touristy and you'd see more cool things on your own, let me assure you that the opposite is true. With this company, you'll learn way more about what you're actually seeing, and all the small details are just handled for you, leaving you to just enjoy and be present. They know where to go and when, they know the driving directions and the trails, they know what is safe and unsafe, what's okay to touch and what not to; the list goes on. I always felt like the guides were very invested in us having a great time, and so professional. Also of note, the food that Jacamar provides is incredible. Any tour that mentions "La Finquita restaurant" is their farm-to-table restaurant on a farm, which has a beautiful covered but open air eating area, next to a pond where there is fruit laid out for birds to come-- and many interesting ones do; there were several species that we only saw there during our trip. The food is amazing. On each of our tours they did ask about dietary restrictions early in the day, so they can accommodate that as well. We loved the Hiking Lovers combination tour; we got to see and do so much! You hike Hanging Bridges, then La Fortuna Waterfall (with optional swimming), then eat lunch at La Finquita restaurant which is operated by Jacamar and has awesome food and great birds to watch; then hike a trail on a section of Arenal Volcano. We had a blast. We were in Costa Rica for 6 days (but 4 full days to be able to do activities); we booked 2 days of tours ahead of time then filled our additional days with Jacamar's tours once we were there, because they were so incredible. The ones we did were: -Day 1 "Hiking Lovers” -Day 2 "Birdwatching Near the Arenal Volcano" morning, then "Lake Arenal by boat and Peninsula Tour" -Day 3 "Cano Negro Boat Safari" -Day 4 "Children's Eternal Rainforest Expedition"

      Our guide Marco was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and the geology of the area. He made sure to get everyone pictures of wildlife we saw along the way and talked about the various animals and birds and showed us pictures on his phone with even more information. His knowledge of geology and local history made the Arenal hike even more memorable than it would have been otherwise. He was ably assisted by Jose who made sure no one was left behind. One of the very best expert-led excursions we’ve ever enjoyed.

      Outstanding Day of Hiking! We were very fortunate to have Caesar as our guide!!! Caesar provided so much interesting information on all three hikes about the animals, insects, birds, snakes and plants. The tour van was clean and air conditioned. We had a wonderful lunch on a farm. Caesar located a sloth while we were there! Awesome, awesome day!
