The Ultimate Waterfall Adventure!
Your trip begins with a 30-minute 4x4 drive into the tropical rainforest outside the town of La Fortuna, in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano.
We trek through the forest on magical trails that lead to some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, a place very few people get to experience. Along the way we will have the chance to discover the secrets that lie hidden deep within the canyon.
Venture into the Arenal region’s lush tropical paradise on one of our automatic easy to use all terrain vehicles. Choose one of our daily expeditions and ride your own ATV along dirt roads, forest trails, different off roads trails, rolling postures, crossing over and thru rivers and enjoying an adrenaline filled adventure in the unspoiled Costa Rican landscape.
Rain or shine it's always perfect ATV weather!
Sky Trek is a system of zip lines ranging from mountain to mountain, which together have a distance of 2.5 miles of linear cable.
The tour gives you the opportunity to glide along a cable and have a unique experience of adventure and adrenaline at speeds up to 40 miles per hour with distances ranging up to 2500 feet and heights of 524 feet. In addition, the tour offers 5 observation towers above the cloud forest treetops providing a panoramic view.
When you think about Costa Rica, you probably imagine lush tropical Rain Forests, flowing white rivers, spectacular waterfalls, birds, butterflies and flowers. At La Paz Waterfall Gardens, you will see all that and more.
With over 3.5 kilometers of walking trails, Waterfall Gardens is primarily a self-guided tour allowing our visitors to proceed directly to their areas of interest, such as the Butterfly Observatory, Hummingbird Garden, Serpentarium, Frog Exhibit, Tica House, Trout Lake and our bird watching areas, . However, we highly recommend guided tour ($35 per group as available) to receive the most information and impact from your visit.
"What if it rains?" This is the Rainforest for goodness sake! Seriously, sometimes it does rain here and sometimes it doesn't stop! However, we do offer raincoats for sale and our trails are designed so you will have places to stop and take cover. However, we do not offer 'rain days' for paid tours.
Our Safari Float on the Penas Blancas River offers a great way of enjoying the abundant wildlife surrounding this river. On our rafts an expert naturalist guide will do all the paddling, allowing you to relax like the iguanas sunning themselves on the nearby branches. You will have plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the rainforest canopy teeming with monkeys or catch a closer look at many species of tropical birds through your binoculars.
Guests float on the river for approximately two hours before arriving at a local working farm, the owner of which is a well known Costa Rican horse breeder and trainer. His wife makes delicious typical style food like yucca bread, homemade cheese, sweet fried plantations, and serves these treats with our famous coffee made the old-fashion way. Everything you eat at this farm comes directly from their own land!
During the tour, our experienced guides will provide interesting and educational information regarding the local botanical and animal life in addition to geography and history.
Our destination for this tour is a vast rain forest preserve measuring 250 hectares of protected land. This natural paradise consists of two miles of walking trails, crossing 15 bridges, 6 of them being hanging bridges. The spectacular design of these hanging bridges brings you closer to nature and gives you the option to walk the forest floor like a Jaguar, swing from the middle branches like a monkey or soar overhead like an eagle.
One of our hanging bridges is called 'The Waterfall Bridge' and is over 60 meters high giving you an amazing view of a beautiful waterfall. In addition to each of our unique bridges, guests have the opportunity to learn an abundance about the rainforest and see a variety of wildlife.
During the tour, our experienced guides will provide interesting and educational information regarding the local botanical and animal life, geography and history and if you are lucky you may even catch some breath taking views of the Arenal Volcano.
