You can find a huge number of restaurants and offices in which you can book tours to the most popular destinations of the excursion of the surroundings,

  as for example a whole day tour to the Cano Negro reserve (river journey), excursions in the Monteverde national park, riding tours to the waterfall La Fortuna or to the ‘Cerro Chato’, a gone out volcano, to the limestone cave of Venado as well as to the hot springs of Tabacon.
  You can take a horse tour down to the waterfall La Fortuna, that will costs about 30 USD per person. You leave La Fortuna on a little driven street and ride past Papaya plantations up to a country lane which branches off to the waterfall. From out there you still ride about one hour up to the cash small house where you pay the entry at the rate of approx. 3.5 USD per person. horse tour to the waterfall La Fortuna
  Then you go above an invested footpath precipitously downhill in the gulch of the waterfall. you should bring at all costs a steady footwear. The descent is rather dangerous partly and nothing for "strollers". Become you are recompensed for it of a breathtaking sight. Roaring the water from big height falls in a washbasin in which you can take a chill bath.
  Arenal Bridge over River in the Forest. If you leave La Fortuna in the direction of volcano and Arenal lack, you come past a new disco with volcano look to the hot springs of Tabacon. Here you find on the left side a luxury arrangement with restaurant and hotel as well as a tropical garden with several swimming pools, the water has a temperature of about 40 degrees Celsius and is warmed up directly by the volcano.
  The entry amounts to about 39 USD per person.
If you just want to have a bath, you simply go to the pool across the street. This one has concreted the river run simply here and there and has furnished dust corners with small waterfalls. You also find there a nice garden, however, have no direct view to the volcano.
For people with a lower budget a bath possibility exists a kilometer farther in the river directly on the left below the street. In the street edge parking vehicles you will point out to it. We advise against this , because a lot of the people brought garbage.


In the Arenal you can rent boats as well as wind surfing and fishing. The fresh-caught fish from the lake is a true delicacy. it is prepared in a small place directly in the lake which you reach only on crossing some river runs by jeep.
