Duration: 2 nights - 3 days
Day I: transfer from your hotel to Arenal volcano and arrival at your hotel. We offer you two different options to stay: the first one it is outside of the town in a beautiful bungalow in the middle of nature, the second is to stay downtown in La Fortuna which is a very pleasant little town. Both hotels offer breakfast, A/C, private bath and hot water. Around 3 pm our guide comes to pick you up for your volcano tour. You will start by an observation walk on the old lava from the first eruption of the volcano. This area is famous for having seven different species of endemic orchids. Then our guide takes you to an observatory point, you will be at the foot of the volcano. At the end this outstanding afternoon you will relax at the Baldi's hot springs. This five star resort has 25 swimming pools, a jacuzzi and three water slides of hot, volcanic water. You will love it! Enjoy a really nice buffet dinner and go back for the night at your hotel. It is also possible to go to Tabacon resort hot springs with an extra on the package price.
Day II: Transfer to Monteverde with the jeep boat jeep; this is a really easy way to travel. First an air conditioned van comes to pick you up to your hotel and drive to the lake where you will board a fast boat to cross the Arenal lake. Once in the other side, another van drives you by the old mountain road. At around noon you will arrive to your mountain hotel.
We work with several different hotels, and depending the availability we choose one (of course we always send you the Internet link of each place and let you pick what you want). All hotels offer breakfast.
