Arenal COMBO La Fortuna Waterfall Arenal Volcano Rainforest Walk
For nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts!
Arenal COMBO Tour: La Fortuna Waterfall & Arenal Volcano Rainforest Walk
Check out the two most beautiful sites in the Arenal area -- the La Fortuna Waterfall and the Arenal Volcano National Park. This is the perfect tour combination for nature lovers! Start off your adventure with a hike to the Arenal Volcano National Park. This National Park is one of the most visited parks in all of Central America. The trails are generally flat and not very strenuous -- perfect for a leisurely and informative hike with one of our naturalist guides. We’ll head through the jungle, hiking through well-groomed, easy trails that skirt the base of the Arenal Volcano. Your eagle- eyed naturalist guide will point out different species of flora and fauna and teach you about Costa Rica’s nature, culture and history, including information about the volcanic explosion of 1968. This area was devastated by the lava flow and has since re-grown into a lush forest with great biodiversity.
When you reach both of the observation platforms you will see magnificent views of the impressive Arenal Volcano, the pristine Lake Arenal, and the extinct volcano Cerro Chato! If you're lucky, you’ll also be able to hear or see gas and ash eruptions come out of the top of behemoth Arenal Volcano.
Next, we will head to the breathtaking La Fortuna Waterfall. When you reach the entrance, you will have time to change into your bathing suit in case you want to go for a swim and cool off under the waterfall. This will be a good workout as there are 300 steps to get to the down to the waterfall, and 300 to get back up! When you reach the bottom, you'll have an opportunity to take lots of pictures and swim in the cool waters of one of the largest and most breathtaking waterfalls in Arenal!
This is the perfect COMBO tour for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts!

With two different activities, this was an ideal and full half day trip. You need to be reasonably fit to get the most from this because the climb to the waterfall is steep. The volcano walk is easy.
Swimming at the waterfall is intensely fun. The water is chilly but you get used to it quickly. Best to have tevas for down at the pool because the rocks are hard to walk on with barefeet.
Volcano walk is flat most of the way, with outstanding view over the lake at the end. We saw toucans in the trees below.
The best part of the tour is the excellent guides. Two plus a driver means everyone is being taken care of. The guides were very concerned for our comfort and safety. When my friend tripped and cut her foot, the guide (Milton, the best) stayed with her every step of the way back and did not rush us, even though we were last to return to the shuttle. Also, my friend left her raincoat on the shuttle, and the next day they brought it by our hotel.
Desafio is a well run and classy operation. Highly recommend!

I can not say enough about how good Desafio did. We had 4 adventures with them and very single one was awesome! The guides and Drivers were great and had a lot of information about the wildlife and history of Costa Rica! They also gave us great recommendations on local restaurants and places in La Fortuna to experience a little more of the local culture and food. One day I completely messed up the time that we were suppose to be picked up and they re-arranged the schedule so we could still do our adventures in the afternoon for no extra charge. Great customer service, great people, great company! I would highly recommend them to anyone that wants to have a fun safe time in Costa Rica!
