Arenal COMBO Chocolate Tour La Fortuna Waterfall Hike

Two of the best secrets in Arenal.


  BOOK NOW

Arenal Combo Tour 2 in 1: Chocolate Tour & La Fortuna Waterfall Hike.

There are so many things to do near the Arenal Volcano, we thought we’d combine two of what we consider some of the most interesting activities in Costa Rica: a nature hike to the La Fortuna Waterfall and a fabulous chocolate tasting tour! Your naturalist guide will pick you up from your hotel and take a fun drive up a country road to the breathtaking 150-ft La Fortuna Waterfall. Once we arrive to the base of the extinct Cerro Chato Volcano, we’ll hike down to the bottom of one of the largest waterfalls in the Northern Zone. The hike is about 300 steps to get down a well-maintained path, and 300 steps to get back up! Its quite a good workout! While you are down there, and if conditionas warrant, you can swim in the crystalline pools that flow from the impressive waterfall and take advantage of some beautiful photo ops! Soak up the nature, birds, rainforest, and enthralling sounds and sites of this enchanting La Fortuna attraction.

It is truly amazing there -- Mother Nature at her best! When you come back up from the waterfall and change into your dry clothes. When you are relaxed and refueled, we will head down the road to the cacao plantation to learn about the chocolate making process, and get to taste some freshly made chocolate! Have you ever seen where cacao comes from?

While in their pods, cacao beans are actually covered in a delicious fruity pulp that you can snack on before roasting the bean. Yum! After learning about the process and history of chocolate making, you’ll be impressed to find out what REAL chocolate looks and tastes like. This kind of chocolate has a wide range of health benefits so don’t feel guilty about eating a lot of it! This is one of Desafio's favorite COMBO Tours.

And here at Desafio, we are fanatical about our love of chocolate and have even made our own chocolate bars in conjunction with local choclatier Chocolate Fusion. Be sure to stop by our office to buy a souvenir Desafio Energy Fix Dark Chocolate bar!

IMPORTANT NOTES

IMPORTANT NOTES


We have created these fun COMBO tours to help you economize time and money on your vacation - we will coordinate your tour pick-ups and drop-offs and in some COMBOs, you may have a short break back at your hotel to take a breather before the next tour. Please keep your itinerary with you so you are aware of your COMBO logistics. Remember we are at the mercy of Mother Nature. There may be times when we have to modify a tour to provide the safest adventure for you. The waterfall may have a large water flow with unfavorable conditions to swim, but the walk down is still worth the visit!

We had a great time on our waterfall and chocolate tour. We had a little trouble with the time for our chocolate tour and neither the guide nor the company told us we would have to leave the waterfall at a certain time to get to the chocolate tour so we were late to our chocolate tour. Making drinking coco and the hot chocolate tasting was one of the best memories from our trip and we loved the entire tour. The waterfall swim was amazing and worth all the steps but beware....that water is very cold. Our Rio Balsa whitewater rapids trip was wonderful and Desafio was very organized on this tour. We were picked up promptly and the schedule was perfect for a half day trip. The fruit stand stop was fun and we bought some lychee, papaya and mango for snacks.

The waterfall tour in La Fortuna was amazing. Best of all though was the white water rafting tour on the Balsa river. Jonathan was the best guide and made it fun! I would definitely do this tour again and use Desafio for any tours.
