ABOUT THE TOUR

Tour departure/return location: La Fortuna/Arenal

Tour times: 8:00am

Tour duration: Approximately 6.5 hours

Tour includes: Cerro chato hiking tour, trail entrance fee, guide, lunch, and round-trip transportation to/from La Fortuna hotels (hotels that fall outside of the regular transportation zone may have an additional fee; leave us a comment at the bottom of this page if you wish us to confirm the transportation amount that would apply to/from your specific hotel)

  • La Fortuna Waterfall visit and waterfall entrance fee are included when selected and reserved in advance; see the tour options listed above for option pricing

Tour operator’s description: For those who are looking for a physically demanding hike, Cerro Chato Volcano, which has had no volcanic activity for the past 3,500 years, is the perfect choice. One can appreciate the changes from rainforest to cloud forest while climbing the peak, measuring approximately 3,700 ft. We will begin the tour in Fortuna and ride in a minibus around Volcano Arenal to the Hotel “Observatory Lodge”. A naturalist guide will accompany you during your hike and will teach you about the geological history as well as the surrounding nature that inhabits Volcano Arenal’s older brother. We will start the steep hike to the summit of “Cerro Chato” crossing a very compact, primary rainforest on our way. From the summit, we will walk down to the green lagoon (an old volcano crater) where we can swim, take pictures, or simply enjoy our surroundings. After another short climb, we will begin our decent. This will give us a beautiful view of Arenal and the valley of San Carlos. As we pass through through the rainforest, we’ll hopefully see various birds and other wild animals (though viewing the enormous size plants alone make this tour worthwhile).

  • If the tour + waterfall visit option is chosen, the following description also applies: To top off this exciting tour, we will visit the breathtaking waterfall of Fortuna. Towering over 200 ft tall and surrounded by exotic vegetation, this majestic beauty attracts about 100,000 visitors every year. This natural wonder requires a steep 15 minute hike, but the beautiful landscape and refreshing swim in the clear, cool river will undoubtedly be worth the effort.
