The Arenal volcano is located 7 Km from the town of la Fortuna and covers 33-square Km. Since 1968 the volcano has been active until 2010, the volcano offers two landscapes, one covered with lush vegetation that houses a variety of wildlife, and another rugged area of lava flow and sand as a result of constant eruptions. This area is known for its hot springs, which provide a uniquely relaxing environment surrounded by local nature. Arenal is surrounded by caves, waterfalls, and volcanoes.
With its several protected areas, lakes, lagoons, volcanoes, rivers, and waterfalls, the northern zone is undergoing a boom in tourism service and adventure site development, so that nature-loving visitors can enjoy the region’s many riches. Thanks to frequent rains, the Northern zone features wet and evergreen forest as well as fertile plains-natural environments that serve as sanctuaries for water birds, reptiles, mammals, and the prehistoric Gaspar fish, and important sites of interest for wildlife-lovers. Adventure activities and nature-watching may be enjoyed on the region’s rivers-Peñas Blancas, San Carlos, Toro, Puerto Viejo, de Sarapiqui-some of which are important navigational routes.
