What To Expect

Begin your full-day volcanic adventure with pickup at your San Jose hotel in the morning. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, leave the bustling capital behind for the traditional villages, cattle ranches, and plantations of the Costa Rican countryside. Learn about the area’s history and attractions from your naturalist guide on the roughly 3-hour drive to La Fortuna. Feel free to ask all the questions like and take advantage of the personalized nature of a private tour.

In La Fortuna, settle into a table at a local restaurant for a typical lunch, served with fantastic views of Arenal Volcano — the beautiful and active crater that draws thousands of visitors to the region each year. While volcanic activity has decreased in recent years, you may still see puffs of steam emanating from the peak.

In the afternoon, head to Baldi Hot Springs to soak all your cares away in natural thermal pools fed by cascading waterfalls. With 25 different mineral-rich pools surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, it’s the largest hot springs resort in the world and offers blissful aquatic options for all ages.
