Arenal Volcano Tour*

The main attraction of this trail is 600 meters long and accessible to everyone. ¬†On this trail, you can see a great diversity of animal life and plants specific to this region, including sloths, poisonous red frog, agoutis, caimans, helicons, orchids, palms, etc. There is a two sided path that is 350 meters long and in this area you can see plant life in its natural regeneration. 

Additionally, this tour passes through a butterfly nursery garden where you can see different kinds of larvae, pupae, and butterflies interacting with each other and with their host plants. 

The natural lake is another one of our major attractions and it protects our own colony of Cochlearius cochlearius (Chocuacos), caimans, basilisks, iguanas, and a great variety of migrating and non-migrating birds. In the Cultural House of Maleku, you can observe and purchase original handmade crafts as well as listen and learn interesting facts about the roots of Maleku. 

Completing the tour, you can see a garden of medical plants and orchids and then go out and enjoy a colorful and beautiful view of birds, or buy a unique souvenir from our souvenir shop.


We recommend bringing a rain poncho, hiking/running shoes, sandals, a change of clothes, binoculars, a camera, sunscreen, bug spray, money (for lockers), and a hat.
