Rate per person from $90

See another side of Costa Rica when you delve into the Venado Caverns for a spelunking tour near Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano. In your two hours, you’ll be led by an experienced guide through limestone caves believed to be between 15 and 20 million years old. This is an exhilarating underground passage in the middle of the pristine tropical forest.

This tour is perfect for those looking for excitement and an off-the-beaten-path adventure. Some of the amazing things you’ll likely see and experience in these caves, which are 8,850 ft (2,700 m) below the earth’s surface:

– prehistoric marine fossils and subterranean creatures like spiders, insects, and bats
– stalactite and stalagmite formations
– subterranean streams and a walk through a curtain of water (depending on the season)

Not a spelunker? Not a problem! Your tour guide will show you everything you need to know. You’ll be crawling, climbing, and wading through small passages partially filled with water, so get ready to get wet and dirty.

Age limit: Minimum nine years old.

What to bring: camera, change of clothes and shoes (essential). Wear comfortable clothes to get wet and shoes with a good grip.
