As with many things in Costa Rica, Arenal 1968 Volcano Trails is not well marked as there really is no signage as you pull into the site. So if you are driving yourself, use GPS and look closely for the entrance. Once you find it,...More
We enjoyed hiking the longer of the two trails. It passes over varied terrain and provides good views of Arenal Volcano. Wooden walking poles are provided if required. We saw birds, monkeys, a snake and, my favourite, the leafcutter ants. Remember to take plenty of...More
We stopped here after declining to go to Arenal National Park. Nothing against it but for the price, all we really wanted to do was hike, so this location down the road just seemed more suitable. It was only $16/person and our children were free....More

I believe there are no guides locally to pick. We pre arranged a tour with a guide. Although it is easily marked and you can walk by yourself, the guide was a wealth of information and that really made the trail amazing.
