I was wondering what would be the activities not too miss in Arenal just after Xmas but I also want to avoid the obvious and the crowds...
1. Are the hanging bridges (http://www.hangingbridges.com) the same hanging bridges visited during the sky trek?
2. Is the rafting at el toro river recomended at this time of the year?
3. What are the best activities by night? Are the treks to see the lava flows a thing just to catch tourists?
Any other suggestions?
