Activities

Arenal Eco Zoo – This popular nature center educates guests on some of the animal species that are indigenous to the cloud forests in the northwestern region of Costa Rica.

Butterfly Conservatory – With a focus on the study and preservation of butterflies in the Arenal volcano area, this attraction is open to both tourists and academics who want to learn more about the country’s conservation efforts.

La Fortuna Waterfall – You can hike to the bottom of this 70 to 75-meter waterfall to swim in the natural pool at the base.

Arenal Volcano National Park – With a quietly active volcano, which emits puffs of steam rather than hot lava, this volcano is one of the most visited attractions in Costa Rica. You can hike to the lava trails, spy the waterfalls, or take a dip in the hot springs.

Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges – You don’t have to experience the natural beauty from ground level. This attraction takes visitors through the nature preserve through a series of bridges for thrills that are as amazing as the views.

"This is such a charming B&B with exceptionally friendly & accommodating staff. Wonderful breakfasts in a delightful area over looking the Laguna Arenal. I highly recommend staying here. It's a rough road to get there but well worth the bumps."
