Arenal and the north: Nature trail across Arenal's hanging bridges

Nature trail across Arenal's hanging bridges

Difficulty rating:


A 3km nature trail leads through lustrous primary forest in the shadow of Arenal, revealing stunning views of the active volcano framed by overhanging foliage. Keep an eye out for wildlife: toucans, monkeys, tree frogs, iguanas, parrots, snakes, sloths and butterflies are all common here.

A series of precarious hanging bridges connects sections of the trail across rippling rivers beneath, lending an adventurous aspect to the experience.
