Arenal Volcano Costa Rica

Arenal Volcano Overview

Arenal Volcano Overview

Arenal is Costa Rica’s best-known volcano. It’s a stratovolcano – a large, symmetrical volcano that’s built upon layers of ash, rock and lava – and at 5,437 feet, it stands high above the rest of the countryside. After nearly 400 of years of inactivity, Arenal began erupting in 1968, when it exploded and buried over 5 mi² (15 km²) in rocks, lava and ash. That eruptive cycle took pause in 2010 when the volcano entered into an indefinite resting phrase.

Tours and Activities

While it’s easy to sit back and simply enjoy the fantastic vistas of the volcano, Arenal is best appreciated when it is explored, investigated, and wandered in. The tours we offer will help travelers to do just this. Hikes through the Arenal Volcano National Park immerse visitors in a rich, biologically diverse rainforest, while canopy and rappelling tours provide an invigorating jolt of adrenalin. Additionally, there are soothing hot springs to soak in and rivers that can be rafted down. More
