  • This is a great national park to visit. We had bad weather at the Arenal volcano, so we were very happy with the hot weather and all the volcanic activity. You can do several walks: 1 shorter walk whi...  more »
  • A unique nature experience, touring the various manifestations of an active volcano, surrounded by different types of vegetation, lot of fauna and with a final against a spectacular waterfall. There is no how to get bored! more that we were lucky to see a tapir who calmly posed for us.

  • Certainly glad we came here. Managed to add at least two species of money to our 2018 spotting list, and countless species of birds, most of which remain unidentified. A toucan narrowly evaded the camera lens but got to see it with our own eyes which is what really counts. As a lover of rocks I was in my element gazing at the bubbly volcanic pools and letting the sulphurous gas of the earth fill my nostrils. Highly recommended.
  • 1 hr north of Liberia Costa Rica. The drive up the mountain from HWY 1 is quite scenic. Costa Rica has built a brand new visitors center at the entrance to the park. The walk through the park is very interesting too. Lots of boiling mud pots, steaming vents and your house of 2 volcanoes to climb ( if your in shape). A must see if you visit the Guanacaste area. Plan on spending from 4 to 7 hrs up here.
  • 😍😍😍😍😍
  • A very good national park. To appreciate the flora and fauna of the region. Also are the fumaroles and the great volcanic activity of Costa Rica. The trails are very good and are well-signposted. The landscapes are very beautiful and very interesting viewpoints each one of them. It is a good time to visit them and appreciate them. To take some time and explore it.

  • To access the top of the volcano, walk in the primary forest, then through a former lahar-ravaged vegetation. The Summit is at 1895 meters of altitude, we discover a beautiful Lake of acid. I recommend this national park which is very uncrowded.
