Arenal Volcano is located 3.5hrs from San Jose International Airport and 2.5hrs from Liberia International Airport.
The National Park consists of Tropical Rainforest with great trails to do walks. The Peninsula area of the national park has an accessible trail which is perfect for families with children or seniors.
What differentiates this national park is the perfect cone of the volcano which is magnificent, also the old volcanic eruptions and the arenal lake which is a man made lake to produce electricity.
Costa Rica produces 99% of its energy with renewable resources!!!!
In this area there are amazing Family activities apart from the national park.
We recently visited Mistico Hanging Bridges. This park is perfect for all ages. It offers an Universal trail with hanging bridges perfect for seniors, children and wheelchair.
And outstanding adventures for families with teens like horseback riding and the spider monkey canyon.
