WELCOME TO CLUB RIO ADVENTURE CENTER
EIGHT INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE TOURS IN ONE PLACE
Only at The Springs Resort & Spa
Only at The Springs Resort & Spa
Club Rio Outdoor Center is located directly below the resort along our beautifully forested, mile long stretch of Arenal River frontage. With its eight different soft adventure activities, Club Rio is perfect for all ages and is a “Must See” area of the resort. The fact that all of these activities are offered in one location and on-site is a fantastic amenity for our guests. Some of these tours and activities include River Tubing, Inflatable River Kayaking, Horseback Riding, Rock Climbing and Rappelling, Nature Tours, Hot Springs, and River Fishing. Before and after the scheduled tours, we encourage our guests to walk the hiking trails leading to secluded, natural hot springs just feet away from the river’s edge.
Club Rio also features Arenal’s finest animal sanctuary. In conjunction with the MINAE (Ministry of Environment and Energy) we operate a preserve for Costa Rican wildlife that have been confiscated from poachers or donated by other private reserves, rescue centers or individuals. Our Wildlife Sanctuary Tour gives our guests the opportunity to experience a large array of Costa Rican wildlife living in beautiful, natural habitats all in one easily accessible location.
CLUB RIO TOURS
EIGHT ADVENTURES, RIGHT ON-SITE, AND A “MUST SEE” AMENITY OF THE RESORT!
Located below the main resort on our private stretch of the Arenal River, Club Rio Outdoor Center offers River Tubing, River Kayaking, Horseback Riding, Climbing and Rappelling Wall, Animal Sanctuary, Guided Nature Hikes, Fishing and Hot Springs. We highly recommend that you take our shuttle bus and come see the beauty of this place. You don’t have to book a tour to enjoy Club Rio because there is a lot to see and experience by just walking around and lounging in the Hot Springs, and then you can see the various tours in action. Please bring your bathing suit and horseback riding clothes when you come down because we are sure that you will want to book some of the tours while you are there. No visit to The Springs Resort & Spa is complete without the Club Rio Experience!
