The Arenal Volcano and Costa Rica's north are real highlights of a holiday to Costa Rica. Waterfalls, cloud forests, hanging bridges and hot springs dominate the area.
This region of Costa Rica is renowned for its wide variety of wildlife and for exciting outdoor adventures.
The impressive Arenal Volcano is one of Costa Rica’s most iconic sites. At a height of 5,437 feet, the perfect conical shape volcano, now in a 'sleeping phase', was Costa Rica’s most active volcano from 1968 until 2010.
Walking tours are popular on Arenal's lower slopes and windsurfing on Lake Arenal is a popular pastime.
This is also the perfect base from which to explore the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge, a bird lover’s spot near the Nicaraguan border.
