Floating down the river you will have the opportunity to sight crocodiles, monkeys, sloths and other wildlife hiding in the tropical forest along the river bank. Nighttime brings us into another realm; come and discover this safe and exciting way to travel through the mountain using the peacefulness of the river as your mode of transportation.
The Twilight safari begins with a 20 minute drive to the river. Guests will enjoy approximately two hours floating down the river spotting wildlife and engaging in pertinent conversation as the sun sets. With proper lighting the night turns into a whole new world as tourists discover the creatures of the dark. The adventure ends at a countryside farm where they witness what it means “to live off of the land” Here snack will be served and enjoyed in a true Costa Rican way.
Before the active period of 1968, lush vegetation was covering the volcano. People who climbed the Arenal used to say that inside the crater there were big trees and at night these people slept in places where there was some heat due to small steam outlets. Our adventure will begin on the trails of Arenal Volcano National Park, with an approximate distance of 3.1 Miles, with a variety of vegetation from primary and secondary forest. One of the best ways to see the Arenal Volcano is from this point, while walking will have the opportunity to observe a variety of plants, wildlife, volcanic rock formations and Lake Arenal.
It’s actually a very historic walk to learn about the Colossus of Arenal which has a direct influence on the economy and local culture.
