The Historical Walk Arenal Volcano National Park goes to the area that fully received the impact of the destructive eruptions that started on July 1968 and went on for over 40 years.


The region of Arenal can divide its history: before and after July 1968, as the mountain that was simply considered as the “Hill of the Finches” -as the diversity in birds was remarkable- blew its summit creating various craters and leaving a deadly trace of fire and ashes.


Towns were destroyed, there were casualties, and the area changed forever.  When you come to this tour, you will learn the dramatic details from the mouth of the local tour guides, some of them might even be grandchildren of those who lived the tragedy.


You will also learn about the great advantages that, in the end, depicted from the volcano when the travel industry discovered Costa Rica, and hundreds of thousands started visiting the isolated region.


The tour will start as your transportation, and specialized tour guide picks you up at your hotel to take you to the “dark side of the volcano.”   The area where you can still see the traces of decades of volcanic activity.

You will walk approximately 2 kilometers (1,2 miles) through several different scenarios, the pastures, the forest at the edge of the lake, and the old rivers of lava.


You will arrive at an amazing viewpoint where you will delight in the breathtaking sight of the Arenal Lake.


Your tour guide will discover the region for you, beyond the geological history and social and economic outcomes, you will also learn about the natural history of the surrounding rainforests, the fantastic amount of tropical birds and if you are lucky you may even get to see monkeys or coatimundis, common inhabitants of the area.
