We start the tour at 02:30 pm picking up at your hotel, we will arrive at about 03:00 pm to the Private Reservation El Silencio trying to get as close as possible to the vehicle at the base of the volcano; Once in the site we will undertake a walk of approximately 1 kilometer by a path of volcanic stone which has a moderate degree of difficulty, until arriving at the viewpoint, the point closest to the volcano allowed. In the vantage point our Guide will provide you with relevant information about the Arenal Volcano formation, its activity periods, as well as unpublished details of its first eruption in 1968, and enjoy the excellent views of the Green Lagoon and Arenal Lake. As soon as the Guide indicates we will begin the descent along the same path of 1km until we reach the starting point again.
 
In the next stage of the expedition we will change scenery and we will enter the forest of regeneration and little by little in the primary forest in the foothills of the Arenal Volcano. In this trail of 1.5 km approximately if we are lucky we will have the opportunity to find a great variety of plants and animals that inhabit these forests like the toucan, the pava, the oropendola, saínos, snakes and monkeys.

 

After your hike you will be going to the Tabacon hot Springs and enjoy a delicious dinner. The purity of the water will make you feel like you are floating in a oasis of healing, with birds singing all around and the sound of falling water that invites you to relax and recover your wellness and quality of life.
