The combined tour of Arenal 4 in 1 with Tabacon it’s a one-day trip that merges the rainforest hanging bridges, the waterfall of La Fortuna, the Arenal Volcano National Park and the hot springs of Tabacon.
But, put in other words, it’s a whole day of breathtaking experiences immersed in nature.
Without having to rush, you will see the rainforest from all possible perspectives, with a volcano, and with a waterfall, but then again, you will see virgin jungles, and walk through a resilient rainforest that is growing back over the old lava.

Keep your eyes open for the multicolored species of birds and the possibility of glimpsing monkeys or other mammals down below from where you are. As, in this trip, you will find bridges above the trees and their magnificent diversity.
From the hanging bridges reserve your tour guide and transportation will take you to La Fortuna Waterfall, a private reserve that holds one of the most beautiful sightings in Costa Rica, a 70 meters waterfall amid primary forest.
You will come down on a stairway of 500 steps into an ancient volcanic crater and to the bottom of the waterfall. As you come down, you will feel that nature somehow is taking you in. The sounds of the cicadas, frogs and birds, the giant trees and ivies, the roaring water falling.
Let your senses take this experience in.
When you get to the bottom of La Fortuna Waterfall, and depending on the time of year you may take a dip in the river.
