I will also only be spending a day & half there, as I'm thinking my friend & I would want to see what we can see, then get to the beaches, since we are only here for a week. Did you get to see the volcano/waterfalls/bridges? If you did, did you book a tour? I read someone had a bad experience, so wondered if anyone else did. Or if we should just take a taxi there.
Check Arenal Mundo adventura is you want to zip line or rappel. They have several combos. We did full day w/them - included hike down to waterfall (more strenuous thru their property than the regular trail down to the waterfall on other side, then zip line, then rappel, more zip lines, then hokey horseback ride out. Great tour but strenuous. We also booked rafting thru hotel- desafio rafting. They did a great job. Mysticism hanging bridges on our own. Pura vida!
Wow, thanks! More things to think about!
Casa Luna offers various tours that you can book right there at the hotel. Some are popular so you may want to book in advance. Tours come with guide and transportation to/from hotel. We had a rental car so we did not do tours thru the hotel as we booked directly with places. There is so much to do in the area, it depends on what your cup of tea is. We visited La Fortuna waterfalls and Mistico Hanging Bridges, both worth seeing. However, if you're into adventure, recommend canyoning in the area, where you rappel down along and into small waterfalls. Very fun, easy to do. We actually did the Spider Monkey Canyoning thru Mistico Hanging Bridges Park. Pura Vida!
