Arenal and Monteverde Package

This page is also available in English.

Hike to a waterfall, learn about the most recent volcanic eruption or go horseback riding with a 2 or 3 night package to Arenal Volcano! Relax in the hot springs nearby after a full day of adventures. There are numerous other fun activities as well.

You can add nights in the tiny, lush town of Monteverde to your package complete with a boat ride across Lake Arenal to reach Monteverde.

Includes transport to/from Puerto Viejo or San José (or start in one and end in the other)

Getting there

There are daily departures from hotels on the Caribbean coast, San Jose and most Pacific coast towns.

Transportation is in a comfortable minibus with a/c to La Fortuna, a small town at the base of the volcano, where you will be dropped off at your selected hotel. You will have plenty of time the first afternoon and evening to explore this charming little town on your own.


The following day you will be picked up at your hotel at 8 AM to visit the La Fortuna waterfall by horseback. You can also choose a different tour (or more than one). Options include the Arenal Hanging Bridges, the famous Sky Trek/Sky Tram Zipline/Canopy tour, explore the jungle on an ATV tour or visit the Lost Canyon on a conyoneering adventure!

In the afternoon you will explore the 1968 Trail to learn more about the story of the last major eruption and get some fantastic views of the volcano. After the hike you can relax in the wonderful Los Lagos Hot Springs (or you can choose from several other hot spring options in the area such as Tabacon). These hot springs are in a tropical garden setting and a great way to unwind from your hike. The night ends with an extensive and delicious dinner buffet.

Where will I stay?

The standard package is at the San Bosco Inn or similar in downtown La Fortuna. Features swimming pool, A/C, Cable TV, private bath, wireless internet, breakfast included. For a different experience, try an upgrade to luxurious resort styled accommodations such as Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa or The Springs Resort & Spa. These properties are located out of town, a little closer to the volcano in mountain and garden settings. Or if you have something in particular in mind let our travel experts find just the right fit for you!

Adding Monteverde

Continue your trip from Arenal with a crossing by boat of Lake Arenal. The trip across Lake Arenal is part of the fun; transportation from your Arenal hotel to the boat and from the other side of the lake to your Monteverde hotel is included.

You'll arrive at your hotel in Monteverde by lunchtime so you'll have time to explore the area (or you can choose an afternoon departure from Arenal). The Monteverde Cloud Forest is world renowned for its beauty and is an incredible place to stroll the jungle rich with life; maybe you'll even spot the elusive Quetzal, the rare and resplendent bird which is Guatemala's national symbol.

While you're there, you can choose to explore on your own or you can book a tour to explore the cloud forest. Choose from an afternoon canopy and zipline tour, a guided hike of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve or a twilight tour, giving you an opportunity to see nocturnal animals. There are also specialized tours for birders as this is a prime location for seeing many wonderful birds.

Note: depending on where you're starting from and where you're going from here; we may suggest reversing this itinerary. First to Monteverde then shuttle and boat to Arenal. That is because onward transport options from Monteverde and Arenal vary so let our agents choose the best itinerary for you. If you have a preference let us know in your booking form comments.
