Once I arrived in La Fortuna in Arenal, I was told the volcano cannot be visited up close due to its potential danger and past incidents of people unexpectedly losing their lives. So, I didn't. The view from the ground however is beautiful, especially the drive from Arenal to Guanacaste, as you drive along Lake Arenal on the winding streets. Must do in the area is the Tabacon Hot Springs!Recommended for:

One of the world's truly actve volcanos - best seen at night from one of the local hotels - many to choose from. But if you can splurge on one that has the hot springs included, do it! And if you are travlelling with kids, sometimes the hotels that include the Springs in their price work out to cost the same. Do your math. We like Tabacon.... its one of the originals, but their customer service is great and they respond to emails within an hour for reservations.Recommended for:

Everyone tells you to go see the volcano when you come to Costa Rica. I was disappointed both times I did. The top of the volcano was in the clouds the whole time we were there, which is apparently quite common. We went on a tour at night where you are supposed to be able to see the glow of the lava. Nothing. Not what I would call a must do - although if you are here, go to Tabacon Hot Springs nearby. There is also a pretty amazing waterfall in the vicinity.

Not only a spectacular volcano, but also all sorts of exciting activities: the Tabacon Hot Springs (a must visit, bring your swim suits!), zip lining (Eco Glide), horse back riding to a waterfall (Alberto’s Horses), canyoneering and repelling (Desafio), and ATV riding.

This is Costa Rica's most active volcano. While there, you must also go to Tabacon's Hot Springs. This is where you can sit in several nature heated hot tubs and see breathtaking views of the volcano. Also, while you are there, you can visit LaFortuna waterfalls which is just 3 miles from town.You can see magnificent waterfalls cascade into the rainforest and have the opportunity to hike and swim in the river.

Tabacon Hot Springs is one of Costa Rica's top destinations. The new Shangrala garden is mystical, hot river winding through beautiful lush jungle landscape with beautiful natural pools accented by oriental statues, soft spa music playing from
the very air itself. There are luxurious canopied beds to rest upon, take a nap between pools. The rest of Tabacon is wandering jungle paths, through hot water falls, water slide, swim up bar and a great spa. The restaurant is world class.Recommended for:

A beautiful view from our bed at the base of Arenal volcano in central Costa Rica. On sunny days the entire volcano can be seen with smoke seeping out. Most often it is surrounded in haze caused by the clouds caused by the volcano itself.
