Arenal Holidays


Famous for the picture-perfect cone of dramatic Volcan Arenal, this region is a must see for most people travelling to Costa Rica. Alongside the stunning, though sometimes elusive, views of the volcano this area has numerous other attractions to entice visitors. The nearby rainforest is full of wildlife and you can wander along hanging bridges amongst the treetops, sail through the canopy on an adrenaline-fuelled zipline adventure or search for sloths from the forest floor. Lake Arenal lies in the shadow of the majestic volcano and is popular for activities like kayaking, paddle boarding and peddle boarding whilst the jungle trails around the lake can be explored on bike and horseback.

Arenal is also famous for its bubbling geothermal pools, after a busy day there is little better than soak in one of the many volcanic hot springs to relax and rejuvenate.
