Before the active period of 1968, a lavish canopy of vegetation covered the Arenal Volcano. People that climbed Arenal’s summit related that inside the crater there were big trees and at night, they slept in places where there was some heat due to small steam outlets. Right now, the green area is located on the east side of the Mountain, and other little green parts can be seen on the north and the south of the volcano.

Enjoy the most extraordinary views of Arenal on a gentle hike along the base of this marvelous volcano. Beginning on one of the trails close to the volcano, this trail will take you through the forest over recent lava flows, and the area destroyed in 1968 now in the process of regeneration. After the 2 ½ hike you will enjoy a healthy and relaxing soak at the hot springs, it is also possible to see the sunset over the Arenal Volcano while enjoying a massage in a spa.
