All reviews lava flow great view of the volcano spider monkeys rainforest trails highest point the loop great trails admission price cloud cover tough hike arenal national park nice hike costa rica eruption hikers clouds viewpoint
I spent a nice afternoon hiking in this part of the National Park. It's privately owned and has a very nominal entrance fee. The trails are great! Well marked and they give you a map to follow as well. It goes deep into the rain...More
The other parks around Arenal close shockingly early - this is the only one we found still open til 6 so we could squeeze in the whole hike by sunset, which was stunning. Would be great if it was open an hour after so you...More
This was an amazing trip! First: "low cost" at least for Costa Rica. The trails are great if you love nature. These trails are not nicely paved, they are nature pure! You barley see other people. It's so quite and just nature. Make sure to...More

The views to some big old lava floats are incredible and the view to a small blue lagoon...

We were not prepared for this hike as we thought it was a beginner level but it turned out to be more between moderate and strenuous especially the loop that goes up to the Lava field. However, it was definitely rewarding with a view of...More
This place was so much cooler than the Arenal National Park. When we arrived we were the only ones there and didn't see anyone else on the trails until we were leaving. The view of the Lava Fields were amazing and all of the trails...More
We did a self-guided 3 hours hike around El Silencio including most of the rainforest trails and also the extra trails to the lava fields and the green lake/swamp/pool. We started our hike in the pouring rain and finished in the hot sunshine! We didn't...More
