    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Alajuela Province, La Fortuna, Costa Rica

    The day will start with an early pick up, right after breakfast so you can have the right energy for the amazing day that awaits you!

    We will drive for about 20 minutes to the beautiful River of Penas Blancas, close from La Fortuna where our journey will begin...

    Once at the river, after the guide's talk and the safety life jackets and helmets are on you will seat on a raft that can fit up to 5-6 people and your assigned guide, this will be a peaceful ride flowing down the river, slowly overlooking and experiencing what is like to be in the middle of the rainforest.

    Pay attention to the sounds and the fabulous animals that the guide will point out for you to see, among others, there will be monkeys, sloths, iguanas, toucans, birds and much more!

    A refreshing snack with tropical juices and fruits will be provided in the middle of the river at a nice clear, it can't get any more natural than this!

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: La Fortuna Waterfall, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos 106-4417 Costa Rica

    This is an opportunity that you cannot miss, when visiting the Arenal area you must visit La Fortuna Waterfall! This outstanding natural fall is what you need to do so you can say you have experienced the rainforest of Costa Rica!

    Once at the park, there are main facilities so you can put on your swimming suit and get started with the 500 steps hike down for about 20 minutes. Take your time, breath in the fresh air and enjoy the views of this amazing canyon, pay attention to the birds near you and lookout for little animals to see!

    At the bottom you will presence the magnificent natural waterfall that lies right in front of you... what are you waiting for? Jump in to the water and swim! Go explore the surroundings, take pictures and relax!

    When is time to go get ready to hike back up for about 25 minutes, change your clothes and after a short drive the most delicious lunch awaits you!

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Rancho Rainforest Explorers, Alajuela Province, La Fortuna, Costa Rica

    It's being a fantastic day so far and it is time for a deserving lunch!

    La Familia Rodriguez will be waiting for you with a home cooked traditional meal and refreshing beverages served at a nice family ranch right next to the river!

    Flavor every dish, I promise this will be the most delicious and typical meal you will have! Get to know the local family, share some nice moments with them and taste an incredible coffee before getting ready to the last part of the day, the volcano hike!

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Arenal Volcano National Park 21007 Costa Rica

    The Arenal Volcano is the main feature of this unique destination and hike around it is a great experience!

    You will start with a hike through the rainforest that was formed around the base of the volcano and will continue to pass through the different areas as you get closer until you reach the old lava trails.

    This is not strenuous hike, it will be slow paced so you can see as much wildlife and learn as much about it as possible, but not just that, take some time to overlook the fantastic views that it gives you by being up there, the lake, the forests, the sunset... will be an extraordinary experience!

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    There is an alternative to this tour, where you can do the hanging bridges instead of the safari float. I would definitely recommend doing the safari float. We saw so many different varieties of wildlife and up close. I would do the hanging bridges as part of the 3-in-1 package
