    Arenal 1968 Volcano View & Trails
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Before the active period of 1968, a lavish canopy of vegetation covered the Arenal Volcano. People that climbed Arenal’ s summit related that inside the crater there were big trees and at night, they slept in places where there was some heat due to small steam outlets. Enjoy the most extraordinary view of the Arenal Volcano on a hike along the base and flanks of this giant on the Arenal 1968 park. For this tour we have choose one of the park’s most extraordinary trails to the 1968 lava flows: the remaining memory of the 20th century first eruption and some other areas now in the process of regeneration. We are going to be on this trail for about 2 ½ hours. The “Colada 68” trail will give you the best of the best hiking over lava flows in all the Arenal Volcano area, walk on rocky areas, feel the power and serenity of nature, enjoy amazing views of the Arenal Lake and the Monteverde mountains, plus an insight contact with the local flora and fauna and a great chance for some birdwatching and animal encounters.

Staff was nice and helpful. View from the endpoint was not as good as the view from the platform( first stop on the trail). Concession area will be really nice when it’s finished. It’s a nice work in progress. Carved bathroom doors were awesome. The sign on the trail ( I think it was here) was entertaining. The hike was fine.

Our guide's name was Mai and she was so knowledgeable of everything and made sure we learned a bit about everything. She made frequent stops to explain the history and give people their time to rest. She was so sweet and genuine and her English was really good. Any questions we had, she had great answers. The trail itself was not a hard walk, just a few rocks to watch out far. beautiful views and lots of greenery to see.

We booked the tour through a third party as a seat in, so I assume it's the regular Hiking the Volcano tour.

The hike itself lastet max. 2 hours. According to the description on the website it is supposed to last 4 hours!
At the end of the hike our guide left us with another driver and rushed on to the next tour she had to do.
The whole hike is on designated paths, so you can easily do it by yourself.

The information given was mainly in Spanish due to the fact, that the two others were Spanish speaking. Although we know some Spanish, we sometimes had to ask for an explanation in English as well. This was significantly shorter and obviously with less details.

All in all I would not say that this was value for money.
