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!

Night Walk

The rainforest is beautiful but sleepy during the day, but as the sun sets this dynamic ecosystem literally explodes with life and energy.  You can palpably feel the vitality and exuberance of the creatures surrounding you, but it takes instruction and practice to identify and locate the various creatures creating this orchestral performance.

Bird Watching

The Springs Resort is blessed to be embedded in a combination of primary and secondary, regenerating rainforest that holds a high concentration of reforested fruit and seed trees planted 16 years ago by the current owner in the pasture lands of the previous owner. This combination, along with our kilometer of Arenal River frontage, has created some of the best on-site birdwatching in the country.
