Tour operator’s description: The Arenal Volcano National Park is one of the most visited parks in all of Central America. The trails in Arenal National Park are generally flat and not very strenuous — perfect for a leisurely and informative hike with one of our nature guides. We’ll start the day off by picking you up at your hotel and driving to the entrance of the Arenal National Park. This is where you can use the facilities and read up on the history of the area before your hike. Then we’ll hike through well-groomed, easy trails that skirt the base of the Arenal Volcano. This area was once devastated by the lava flow in 1968 which is why this area has very little vegetation. You can also get to see, touch, and walk on dried up lava flow from a smaller eruption that happened in 1992. This hike provides perfect photo opportunities and magnificent views of the impressive Arenal Volcano, the pristine Lake Arenal and the extinct volcano Cerro Chato.
