Explore Arenal on a Thrilling Journey

Canopy Tour & Tarzan Swing
This Arenal canopy tour begins with an expert guide providing safety tips so you can make the most of all 8 zip line cables. It’s an activity designed for adventurers of all ages and levels of experience, so there’s no need to be shy.
Climb a 42-feet-high tower, and slide across all 14 platforms. Five of those platforms are also built on trees from the forest, providing a first class view of the lush canopy and all its inhabitants. Keep your eyes open for a chance to see spider monkeys, snakes, sloths, bats, and countless birds, including toucans, falcons, and motmots.
Speeds can reach up to 37 miles/hour, and some of the zip lines extend to 2460 ft in length. Don’t forget to give your guide a phone or camera, as there’s also plenty of opportunity to pose for photos. Stop mid air and let the guide take pics of you defying gravity among the trees.
The highlight of this trip comes almost at the end. The Tarzan swing is exactly the adventure it sounds like. Hold onto a rope on a big platform, and swing into a canyon. The trees split here and leave the magnificent Arenal volcano on sight.
Replenish your energy with a snack at the end. Munch on seasonal fruits like pineapple and watermelon before heading out to the next part of the adventure.
Discover Arenal on Horseback
After seeing the forest from a bird’s view, it’s time to get a bit more grounded.
The horseback riding experience is an adventure across farmlands, mountains, and trails. It’s also a great opportunity to appreciate Costa Rica’s vegetation up close. On the way, spot ferns, bromeliads and giant trees, like “ceibas” and “higuerones.”
Arrive at your destiny after an hour of riding. El Silencio observation point honors its name, which means Silence in Spanish. It’s a flat area in the forest with incredible panoramic views of the Arenal volcano.
Listen to woodpeckers and robins interrupt the reigning silence, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the green scenery around the massive volcano. Admire the dried lava trails that follow the volcano’s outline all the way to the ground in a display of dormant power.
This tour is a good opportunity whether you are an expert rider or a beginner. The horses are very skilled, even in steep inclines. Sometimes it even feels like they’re doing all the hard work by themselves, so leave your worries behind.
