Arenal Volcano and Tabacón Hot Springs Day Trip from San Jose

190 reviews
Arenal Volcano is one of Costa Rica’s most active volcanoes, set against a rainforest backdrop. This tour combines two of the highlights of Arenal Volcano National Park: a scenic trek to the base of the Arenal Volcano, followed by a relaxing soak in the Tabacón hot springs. Everything’s taken care of with hotel pickup, lunch, and dinner included.

Beautiful gardens and well maintained trails. The temperature was quite comfortable. There are areas to picnic, a children's playground, benches for resting, and restrooms halfway through. Be sure to carry your lunch, take your camera, and wear comfortable shoes. This is the type of place where you can relax and see something different on each visit. Most of the plants have signage so that you know what you are looking at. It is also attached to a gigantic plant nursery, which is a trip on its own. If you are in Sarchi, this is a must do.

A wonderful collection of tropical plants in a well cared for setting. Amazing to think it is the result of one woman’s vision and hard work.

This botanical garden, nestled behind an active flower export company, is a peaceful quiet oasis. The minute we stepped on the path, we heard a bubbling brook. The size of the leaves of the plants and brilliance of the tropical flowers was everything we had hoped for on our visit to Costa Rica. Butterflies, birds, tropical flowers, even a pond with a small waterfall. There was even a unique playground at the end of the trail, making sure little ones enjoy this garden as much as their parents, although the playground was empty the day we visited.

We finally visited Else’s garden in Sarchi a month or 2 ago and wondered why we had not done that before, because it is beautiful, there is a maze, so many beautiful plantings and paths that meander throughout. We will go again, it is a fantastic place to enjoy nature, take a picnic and if you have kids, play areas.

This is well worth the time to visit. Parking is convenient and the entrance fee very reasonable. Hours are 8 am to 4 pm and we found a couple of hours very enjoyable. Well planned paths and places to sit and take in the beauty abound. There are some steep places on the trails, but the main path is accessible for walkers and wheelchairs. There is something for everyone here from playgrounds for kids to benches and swings for quiet contemplation. The river path is beautiful and leads to the lake with lily pads and a tropical garden with a wonderful waterfall and an events location. There is a nice picnic area if you care to bring a lunch. On the way back we enjoyed the forest with shade and onto the succulents to round out our lovely afternoon
