The Arenal Volcano holds the second place of the 7 natural wonders of Costa Rica.
If from the road you see the perfect geometrical cone of the Arenal Volcano is because you have arrived to La Fortuna de Arenal.
This is a small and colorful town well known worldwide due to its impressive natural beauty, for being a destination ideal for adventure, birdwatching or relaxing at the best natural hot springs the area has to offer.
Arenal is an active volcano, but its last eruption was recorded back in 2010. Since then, it has been dormant.
The zone has 2 main activities, livestock and tourism, which is the main source of employment and economic stability for the town.
Why enjoy and visit the hot water springs?
They are originated from underground activity, odorless, crystal clear and sulfur free. The springs have regenerative attributes, plus they are surrounded by tropical vegetation. All these characteristics create a relaxing atmosphere for body and soul that you should not miss while visiting Costa Rica.
