Waterfall and Hanging Bridges Nature Hike
Arenal Mini Combo Hanging Bridges and the La Fortuna Waterfall
This Combo Tour will allow you to see two of La Fortuna's most popular sites in one day!
Start your day as you hike across the Arenal Hanging Bridges and see the jungle from high above the forest floor. The Arenal Hanging Bridges are a beautiful, environmentally friendly project located near the Arenal Volcano. The trails span a total of 2 miles, allowing you to see the rainforest from a bird’s perspective! Your naturalist guide will teach you about Costa Rican culture, history, and nature, while pointing out different species of plants, animals and birds along the way. These trails bring you as close as you’d ever hope to be to see the rainforest and its inhabitants, as well as give you access to stunning views of the rainforest and mountains that are miles away.
After your adventure on the hanging bridges, you will head to the La Fortuna Waterfall! When you reach the entrance, you will have time to change into your bathing suit in case you want to cool off under the waterfall. This is sure to 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!
Transport to and from your hotel; professional guides; 2 amazing adventures
WHAT TO BRING
Bug repellent; camera; binoculars; closed-toe shoes like hiking boots or tennis shoes only; rain gear; hat; change of clothes; towel; bathing suite for the waterfall
For reasons beyond our control (climate, river levels, etc.), we may change to a more-suitable tour with an equal or similar adventure-appeal or offer other tour options so you don`t miss out on a fun day in Costa Rica. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions & will only run a tour according to our policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run. This adventure involves some inherent risk and physical exertion, so you must be in good physical conditions!
While the recommended weight limit for our canyoneering (rappelling) tour and most zip line tours is 220 lbs (100 kilos) it’s more about waist size than weight as the ropes (canyoneering) and cables (zip lines) are rated for well over 220 lbs but the maximum waist size for the harnesses used for these tours is 42 inches. So if you are a little over 220 lbs but your waist is less than 42 inches you can still do these tours.
