Overall good trail. Beautiful blue waters and wonderful waterfall. Got a good workout going up and down the stairs. It was muddy and a little crowded with many tour groups but still enjoyable. Also saw a coral snake!

Nice trail with views of Arenal Volcano and lake

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 great trail. Good elevation, scenic views, and stunning wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing a troop of monkeys on the trail. I would highly recommend hiking shoes or boots. The lava rock could tear up regular tennis shoes.

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.

this is the best view of the volcano in the area. trails were great. we saw some monkeys and a tone fo birds. trails were great and entrance was $16 per adult. we did a total of 7 miles and about 700 net elevation. we spent a total of 4 hours there and had lunch at the observation point. pack a lunch the restaurant is way pricey.

This was a very enjoyable trail, which is perfect for families with young children. The main viewpoint is wonderful. We suggest bringing a snack on the trail only to enjoy it at the view point. Pros: easy to moderate hike. Wonderful views. Clean rest area. Cons: when cloudy or raining, view of volcano will be limited. Lots of rocks.

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.

Poas is an extremely amazing and active volcano and if that’s all you want to see, you should go for it. But it’s $15 per person to get in, you must pay online ahead of time and when you get to the park you only have 20 minutes to view the crater then 20 minutes to leave the park. We thought we would be able to do the hike to the lake while we were there but that was closed, along with the visitor center and cafe. It was sort of a ghost town and looked like the buildings hadn’t been occupied for some time. It was kind of disappointing and we honestly enjoyed the drive up there more than the park itself.

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.

Great hike today along both the forest and lava trails, 3 miles total, about 2.5 hours. Regular closed shoes are fine as the walk is largely flat and well maintained, with some muddy and rocky areas that would make sandals not a good choice. Important additional information: access is $16 per person, and the parking area appears to be fairly secure. The pass allows entrance for two days in case you want to come back a second day, which they say is the only park that offers this. A new cafe near the entrance has a variety of nice snacks, like smoothies and hummus. There are also mountain bikes for rent for $25 and 16 km of trails. A nice day. Bug repellent is a must for the forest trail.

Great trail, not crowded - felt like we had the place to ourselves! The waterfall was spectacular. A lot of bridges and all types of fauna. Highly recommend!!

awesome hike! not to hard, I recommend going on the lava trail.

Took us about 1h50 to complete, very nice trail, great view of the volcano, but very hot even in the shades, bring a lot of water and it seems higher than what it says (maybe because of the heat). Did it at the end of November, no rain.

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.

We had a great time. Loved the waterfall. Went in the raining season only went to the waterfall. We will return to do the other part not in raining season! Love Costa Rica!

Well worth the views of the waterfall and where the two rivers join. Surprisingly busy for low season and a weekday. Can imagine that it’s very busy on weekends and in dry season. Keep your eye out for sloths, and interesting insects. A fair amount of steps mid-trail and could be challenging for people with knee issues, but definitely doable.

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.

Great hike on lava flow 1968! Fairly steep climb, but 8 year old daughter managed well with hiking sticks provided. :)

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!

Views into the crater are hit or miss depending on the weather. if conditions are right, the view is spectacular. Even in bad weather, if you hang around the view point for a while, you might get a peekaboo view. When it is misting or rainy the hiking trails are right out of a fantasy novel.
