See the best of La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano area in just one day with this tour. Start with a hike along the La Fortuna River, continuing to a suspension bridge tucked deep into the jungle. Then walk to a local indigenous village followed by a traditional lunch. In the afternoon, visit the Arenal Volcano for more hiking before wrapping your day up with a soak in a natural thermal river.

William, brother to the owner of the park, was our tour guide. We did a night tour with him and he invited us to join him in the morning to see the birds. I would recommend day time tours, and especially the early morning. The birds in the morning were fantastic! But seeing things at night was tough, you could never get close enough to see very well, and the flashlight I got was really bad. But go during the day, it was great!

I really enjoyed my afternoon walk on the sloth trail. Eduardo was a great guide, pointing out birds, frogs and of course sloths. He was really enthusiastic, and I enjoyed his storytelling, as well as the nature aspect of the walk. I would definitely not have seen as many sloths if I'd been on my own.

Borgarin is the ONLY one of it's kind that you should do while in La Fortuna/Arenal area! This is the original Sloth trail and the BEST! We had the privilege of meeting and talking with Giovanni Borgarin and he enlightened us to his vision and dream of one day having a beautiful trail and refuge for the Costa Rican Sloth and other wildlife, birds and creatures. He completely volunteered his time to making this dream come to fruition and it is wonderful! Well worth the time to do this trail and tour. Our only regret is that we opted out of having a personally guided tour. We saw plenty, but the guided tours see much, much more! Spend the extra $$ to have a guide!

Our tour guide was William. His family owns the land that the Borgarin nature preserve is located on. He was amazing! I would definitely do this again. We saw birds, frogs ( that he caught for us) sloths and baby sloths, he told us about the different plants and ones they use for medicine. He grew up on Arenal volcano, and survived the 1968 eruption. He talk to us about the volcano and the town surrounding. It was wonderful. Only $35 a person! Totally worth every penny.

We did this trail with a guide which is highly recommended because sloths are masters of camouflage and quite difficult to see! The guides will bring a telescope allowing you to get a better view. We were very fortunate in that we came across a very active mama sloth with her baby. Truly an unforgettable experience!
