Great hike. This gets overlooked due to the popularity and accessibility of Rio Celeste, but for any serious hikers, this is the better journey. The trail is well maintained, and less traveled. We only saw one other couple.

This was a fantastic find. We are avid hikers that prefer off the beaten path hikes. We got here around 12:00, opted for a non-toured hike ($26 per person), and hit the trail. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of space and privacy we had while hiking despite a full parking lot! We saw multiple monkeys and pit vipers. The hanging bridges are exactly as advertised - stunning!!

For me there are two main reasons to hike in this area: 1. to see animals in their natural habitat 2. amazing views of the Volcano. Unfortunately, majority of the trails are through or along the outer edge of a cow pasture!! So no animals to see and if the weather doesn’t cooperate forget about volcano views. I suggest skipping this trail and pay $12 for a trail that actually has you walking in the jungle. I was so disappointed and the observatory deck is tiny and of course worthless when there are clouds. There are 4 waterfalls. One was nice with people swimming in it. two were more like a little stream (very little) over an embankment and the 4th is seasonal which was completely dry (Jan 5th). I would not recommend anyone to hike this trail unless they are just looking for steps for their Fitbit. Two stars are for the one waterfall.

We couldn’t find the trailhead listed here on AllTrails and instead ended up on the road that the trail connects with. From that road, we walked to the trail because the driving would have been too treacherous. The part of the trail that we accessed is incredibly overgrown. We ended up turning around before even getting 20 minutes in because it was not well kept. We probably could have bush whacked our way through it but it didn’t seem worth it.

There are many outdoor activities to choose from in the Arenal area but my friend and I were looking for some longer hiking trails. It seemed like most of the outdoor activities around La Fortuna were out of our budget and too short of a distance. A local recommended the observatory, and it’s absolutely gorgeous and totally worth the $12 (per person). You can access over 5 miles of hiking trails and see several waterfalls. Even though we didn’t go to any of the other ecotourism parks it seems like this one is the best bang for your buck. Especially if you’re looking to do some longer hikes in the area. We finished up with a delicious dinner in the cafe and used the WiFi to plan our next move. I highly recommend this area for anyone looking to see Arenal and all the area has to offer. I would also recommend stopping at the free hot springs near Tabacon before you go. We went early in the morning and had the place all to ourselves.

We took this hike with Rodiber from Monteverde Lodge & Gardens. We saw an agouti, a coati, so many different species of birds, a wasp nest in a tree and a tarantula hideout. We also saw a quetzal. Rodiber had great scopes and was such a knowledgeable guide. I know we saw far more with him than we would have alone, and also learned the history of the area. The hike itself was easy ... if we had hiked without a guide, we would have made it more of a workout but would have missed learning about this beautiful reserve.

Heliconias sometimes is not that birdi but that is nature If you like the Nature and uncontaminated environment this the place . This is a great place to birdwatchand there are tons of butterflies. unlike the bridges on monte verde that are relatively metal sidewalks Here the bridges are relatively hanging and swinging. They are very narrow and they shake but very stable . They are 100 mates long and 40 mates high You will take a loop of three hanging bridges , discovering amazing views . You can see different levels of the forest with mosses , lianas and roots hanging out from the branches and bromelias and plants and other small trees .Watching various types of wildlife, insects and flowers . walking the trail over a couple of hanging (suspension) bridges. Nice for birdwatching. The sound of the forest is delightful. The trip is more about enjoying the nature more than going across bridges . Sometimes the rain makes the experience more real .

We hiked this with our 3 boys 8, 7, and 5 year old. Now, our boys aren’t your normal boys. They have done a ton of hiking and even 40, 36, and 32 mile bike ride respectively. We had a great time. It’s a little tough hike because of the length of the incline and uneven terrain with an pretty easy trail to follow. Make sure you make it to the lookout that has a view of the lagoon. We saw a ant eater and a small snake we haven’t identified yet. Lots of uneven ground and a little time on all 4, but nothing to tough.

Easy to moderate hike challenge depending on expert level. Danta waterfall is strong, and great spot for photos. Danta hanging bridge is simple starter in height for anything of greater heights. Best part of the hike is Arenal Volcano in every backdrop!

Right guys this is my review after reading a lot of reviews before hiking. Couple hoax ar just lame review thing that I would write down. We did it on mid September as is beginning of rainy season? 1.You dont need be super fit to make it(I don't work out and had 5 fractures at my right foot 11 weeks ago 30yo slightly overweight and stillanaged to do it) 2. Its not 'vertical' or extremely dificult. But you will need some stamina. 3. Once you get to the top its not 30 mins to get to the crater. Even if you can't see the water just take left and you will be down in 5 minutes.( This part it is very steep but only 5 mins so you will survive) We didnt encounter any ''power rangers'' which I guess they might turned up there one in a month or even less. But if you do give random names to avoid fine. You can feel slippery part of trail when decending, but just get on your bum when there is biger steps and go slowly and you will be fine(dont be afraid to get dirty) I took me just under 2 hours to the top and 5 mins to the crater. We had a swim 3 sandwiches 3 cigarettes ( yes we do smoke on the hike) and 2 liter of water(should have been 3 as well, as I had to save it later), and in total 4.5 hours to finish the trail. Totaly worth it, bring enough water and enjoy it!

We were staying at Green Lagoon in February. We took off around 9am to hike up. It started out on a road, then gravel road, the you cross a foot bridge, walk up a hill on a trail through grassy area, then into the jungle! Lucky for us, it was fairly dry. Even the roads in were fairly steep. If you aren’t in 1/2 ok shape, DO NOT ATTEMPT! I was winded! We got all the way up & was going to descend to the lake when we crossed park rangers. They spoke Spanish & we couldn’t communicate well, but they turned ya around. Wouldn’t even let us take a picture. The trail IS CLOSED! You can get around the fence, but you may get turned back and/or fined. We didn’t because we were staying at the hotel. If you can/do make it, it’s a fairly difficult, but beautiful trail in Costa Rican Jungles!

Not sure why this is listed as moderate. It’s short and easy but decent. Groomed trails, beautiful location.

Great views of the volcano. Easy well manicured trails. Saw some animals. .

We hiked this trail on a Sunday morning. it was not too crowded and we were able to see howler monkeys, a coati, lizards and interesting insects.

Pour monter ce volcan, vous devez êtres en bonne conditon physique. Très difficile et glissant en saison de pluie. Pour la descente du cratère, c'est très difficile et TRÈS glissant! Vous devez être expérimenter pour aller au cratère. Ne vaut absollument pas la peine d'aller au cratère s'il y a du brouillard puisqu'on ne voit rien.

Nice walk on a well maintained and wide path, easily walkable. Make sure to take the "old lava 1992" side trail near the end, to get a good view of the vulcano. This is a somewhat steep stairs that adds about five-ten minutes to the trip. Instead of going in-and-out, you can continue the trail and take the 2.4 km loop south that is visible on the map. This brings you to a 400 years old kapok tree, but the path is smaller, muddy, and a bit overgrown.

We started this trail at the GreenLagoon resort. The first kilometer follows a road and is steep, but easily doable. Then you leave the road, cross a small bridge, and enter the park. The second kilometer is on the side of the vulcano, a steep muddy path. At the 2km mark is a fence, barbwire, and sign instructing you to return, because the trail is closed and too dangerous. At this point you enter the jungle, the trail is covered and more muddy. Given the trail condition, the very clear instructions to return, and inclement weather; we decided to return at this point. On the way down, you have some nice viewpoints on the surrounding land. Owing to the rain, the path became very slippery. I would not attempt the trail, unless you are sure it won't rain while you're there.

ThIs is definitely a hard trail. When you get to the split at the top, go right. It’s steep down, but if you made it that far you will be fine. Do not go left. . The trail is not maintained and it’s hard to find the lake from there. Also def bring insect repellent or you will be eaten alive by the mosquitoes, they are everywhere. Lastly watch out for SNAKES. I almost ran into a jumping viper and saw death flash before my eyes. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE TRAIL

We started from the Green Lagoon resort where you go into the reception area and pay $10 to access the trail. The first half or so is mostly uphill walking on a dirt road. Once you get into the jungle its pretty much all scrambling to get up. The trail itself appears to be an outflow during heavy rains which creates some really cool sections. We went right once we got to the top and descended down to the lake. On the way back up it started to rain which made this part really really sketchy. You're essentially climbing up mud rocks where at times you have a 20 foot fall if you mess up. All in all super cool trail, definitely worth it, and remember to take your time with the part going into and out of the crater since that is what makes this trail dangerous

guided tour was completely worth it (entrance fee + US$20). Andres pointed out fauna we wouldn't have seen otherwise. hiking itself was super easy.
