Lake Arenal at the base of the volcano, is where you will be able to enjoy windsurfing, kayaking and other watersports. This area is a birders paradise with over 600 species, and you can also enjoy hiking the nature trails, or for the more daring you can climb a steep ladder to participate in a canopy tour.

For a change of scenery, on return, you will  enter the regenerating forest and onto the primary rainforest located along the outskirts of the Arenal Volcano.
