THINGS TO DO IN ARENAL
The Arenal region offers many exciting activities of all sorts – among the most popular is hiking, whether it’s up the mountain trail of the Arenal National Park or to the incomparable beauty of the La Fortuna Waterfall; if walking isn’t your thing, you can always go horseback riding, or on an ATV ride! If you’re a fan of water sports, kayaking or sport fishing in Lake Arenal may be just the thing for you, or even white water rafting in the Balsa River! As long as you have no fear of heights, the Sky Tram offers the most scenic views of the volcano and lake from way up above, or perhaps you’re looking for a little more action and would prefer the Sky Trek, zip lining your way across – the Montana de Fuego Canopy and Mistico Hanging Bridges are also great ways to enjoy nature from a height!
