What to Do in La Fortuna, Costa Rica? — The Top Sites & Tours You Can’t Miss in Arenal!
Unsurprisingly, the crown jewel of the national park is Arenal Volcano — one of Costa Rica’s most notable natural features. Standing at 5,437 feet (1,657 meters), this volcano has been resting (i.e. not active) since 2010. However, it is no less majestic to behold, as it’s practically a behemoth against the region’s perfect skies. Rising above the rainforest that surrounds its base, Arenal Volcano frames the skyline with near perfect symmetry. Not to be outdone, Arenal volcano’s smaller (and much older) sibling, the Chato Volcano (Volcán Chato), adjoins Arenal. Chato Volcano, which resides at a height of 3,740 ft (1,140 m), has been inactive for some 3,500 years and has a crater that’s filled with aqua-blue water. The park has several walking trails, and you can enjoy a full day of exploration because it is open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
