Club Rio Tours
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!
Prepare yourself for a thrilling ride down Class I and II rapids on the incredibly scenic Arenal River, where you will encounter shoulder high rapids and tranquil blue pools. You will finish the mile ride on a small beach surrounded by hot springs, waterfalls, nature trails and our riverside restaurant and bar.
A beautiful and diverse experience with superbly trained horses, this ride combines scenic forest trails, a crossing through the Arenal River and a gallop in the mountain meadows fronting the magnificent Arenal Volcano. This tour is for beginners and experienced riders so both can enjoy it to the level of their abilities.
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.
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.
