We have two full days in Arenal next week and I'm hitting a wall trying to figure out the best way to fit in everything we want to do! We have hot springs at our hotel and are considering a combo of the following activities: Skytrek/skytram, volcano hike, La Fortuna waterfall and/or Rio Celeste hike.
For anyone that's done the Skytrek tour, does it make sense to go for a hike soon after? We were thinking of doing it on our own but since we won't have a rental car, it's seems just as economical to do it as a tour but I don't know if the tour operators would take us back to the hotel after ziplining or if we can stay around the volcano base for a hike soon after (unsure if the park entrance is close to the Skytrek lines). Or does it make more sense to do the Skytrek in the AM, head to La Fortuna and the waterfall that afternoon and do a full day Rio Celeste hike the next day?
I'm not sure if it makes sense to do 2 waterfalls but the Rio Celeste hike seems more challenging than the volcano hike. Plus, I feel like we might get enough volcano watching with the Skytrek? Any suggestions on what activities we definitely should not miss?
Thanks for your help!
