HikingMuddyOver grownRockyScramble

Sendero con dificultad técnica 9/10 Para excursionistas expertos Llevar mapa descargado, buena batería y ropa apta para caminar. Aproximadamente 2.8 kilómetros a la cima por sendero entre la montaña, no apto para principiantes, no se recomienda ir solo. Muy buena caminata, sin embargo se debe de ir muy preparado y OTRA MUDA DE ROPA para la vuelta.

Muy buenos, todo público con diversidad de senderos. Nos parece que falta información sobre la señalización, como distancias de cada sendero y altitud.

El lugar es hermoso, cuenta con calle asfaltada y luego es piedra, mucha cuesta los primeros 2kilometros, luego la vegetación cambia y se convierte en un lugar con neblina pero con frío tolerable, se ve todo el valle central

Sie fängt früher schon an! Am besten gleich nach der Einfahrt auf den Schotterweg Parken! Und dann laufen solange die Füße tragen!

Súper bonito! Hay varios trillos para subir hasta el punto más alto. Hay un poquillo de barro, una parte difícil de subir Me gusto la experiencia, caminamos de 6:30 a 8am aproximadamente y ya empezaba a hacer mucho calor

El sendero es dificil en los primeros 2 kilometros y el ultimo, con un decenso muy inclinado hasta la roca y un pequeño sendero de un metro de ancho para llegar hasta la roca con ancantilados de 300mtrs a cada lado. No apto para personas con vertigo.

HikingMuddy

Not really a trail. Road ends and becomes basically a farmer's road, then it wanders into a super steep and muddy (if it rains) deeply rutted jeep trail. We didn't even get too far into it due to it starting to rain and the trail/road was like skating on mud. It was very scenic from the hilltops and quite lovely, but I only gave it 3 stars cause we couldn't actually do much of the hike.

I'm giving it a 4 mainly because it was better than I expected after reading some reviews. Also because it was my first "hike" after moving to CR. The trail loops from the parking lot around a gray/black sand open space surrounded by slopes with amazing flora. The contrast of the flower and leaf colors against the black sand was very nice. We walked clockwise and thus saved the crater for the last section. The crater was not filled with water and so a tiny bit of a let down. The steep and rough slopes down to the crater were quite interesting, especially as clouds started coming in.

At times beautiful but overshadowed having to spend time dodging mud and it has been relatively dry recently. The first 1/4 of this shouldn’t be a problem with mud and is the best of the trail. The beach at the end is excellent as well. The other 3/4 is why this is 3 stars.

A few waterfalls line this hike. There is a lot of vegetation lining the water and some parts of the trail are steep. Very beautiful!

Hike was relatively easy in my opinion, most of the best views of the volcano is in the beginning part of the hike. Most of the trail was covered over head but def something fun to do around the area. Overall enjoyable and def recommend!

HikingGreat!

I visited La Fortuna Waterfall when traveling in La Fortuna in March 2019. It is an incredibly beautiful and impressive waterfall just a short 7 minute drive outside of town. I took a taxi to get to the the waterfall trailhead from La Fortuna and you do not need a tour to visit here. The taxi driver gave me his number to call for a return ride back. The admission fee was a bit pricey at $18 USD per person. I arrived at 8 am and was one of the first people there, so it was nice to enjoy the waterfall before it got crowded. There were washrooms at the entrance. There was a viewing platform at the beginning, before the steps down to the waterfall with amazing views of the tall plunging waterfall surrounded by thick jungle. This is not much of a hike per say, but there were about 500 steps to get down to the base of the waterfall. Once at the bottom, there were lots of large rocks around the natural pool of water at the base of the waterfall. You could leave your stuff on the rocks and swim there. It was very cold! The waterfall was beautiful and being so close to it was amazing. I also enjoyed exploring the opposite side of the waterfall behind the steps, where there was a peaceful river. The 500 steps back to the top were exhausting but thankfully, there were lots of flat areas with benches to take breaks. I spent around an hour to an hour and a half at the waterfall. This was a gorgeous place and would highly recommend visiting if you're in the area.

HikingGreat!

I hiked the Arenal 1968 Trail in March 2019 as part of a tour booked with Jacamar Naturalist Tours in La Fortuna. The tour began at 8 am and included transportation and a guide and we spent the morning hiking this trail. The hike began by following through the forest at the base of the volcano. Eventually, the trail opened up where we walked across old lava rock fields from the last eruption in 1968. It was amazing to see how the vegetation had grown back and was lush and mature after only 50 years. There were some beautiful views of the Arenal Volcano along the way. I lucked out and it was a clear and sunny day, so the entire volcano could be seen. It was roughly a 5 km hike that was enjoyable and not too difficult. There were some ups and downs but it was very manageable for anyone of average fitness. The main viewpoint for the Arenal Volcano was amazing and had great photo opportunities with a view of the entire volcano. Thoroughly enjoyed my hike at Arenal Volcano! FYI - A guide is required to hike here as it is a private national park. The only downfall, is that you don't end up getting close to the volcano at all during the hike.
