You also will step on ancient lava flows truned into stone, at this moment your guide, willl tell you about Arenal Volcano history. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remains Costa Rica’s most active volcano for the past 43 years. Its history is charged with eruptions – both major and minor – that have intimately affected the region and the people who live here.

At the end of your hike, two and half hours later, a car will get you to Tabacon´s hot springs, for you to relax in the differente temperature pools that are located in this facility. Thanks to geothermal activity beneath Arenal, the area surrounding the volcano is home to a number of natural hot springs. Geologically, Tabacon Resort’s thermal natural springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth’s core. Once heated, the waters rise to surface, taking with them minerals found in the earth’s rocky stratus and it flows by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools, waterfalls and cascades, filling in the pools throughout the resort.

It is highly recommended to brind long pants, light sweater, hiking shoes, camera, binoculars, sun lotion, insect repellent and rain coat.
