Arenal volcano rises majestically from the rainforest, a symmetrical cone against the backdrop of the sky. The national park in which it stands is a haven for wildlife, especially birds with almost 75% of the country’s bird species found here.
Animals include sloths, capuchin monkeys, deer and snakes including boa constrictors. There are many walking trails and you can explore on horseback and go white water rafting on the rivers.
Arenal Lake is ideal for canoeing and kite surfing. Adrenalin junkies will find the canopy and hanging bridge tours hard to resist. There are lots of hot springs in the area. Arenal Botanical Gardens have some 2,500 species of tropical plants, many of them rare, attracting a large number of birds and butterflies.
