Visitors to the area will enjoy hiking through the verdant Arenal Volcano National Park– which has excellent volcano views and wildlife viewing – and going fishing along Lake Arenal. Tours of the hanging bridges allow participants to stare into the upper reaches of the rainforest, while canopy tours will have them flying right through it. Other popular activities include canyoneering, biking, and windsurfing.
The Arenal Kioro is one of the most exquisite hotels in the area. Set on 27 acres (11 ha) of gorgeous, hilly land, guests have the privilege of being able to explore Arenal’s outdoors while still at the hotel. Paths wind near creeks and around groves, and certain trails are labeled with the kinds of plants that line the sides.
