But if getting wet isn’t your thing, don’t fret, as road transfers are available!
Just outside the popular town of La Fortuna, Hotel Arenal Kioro has the best view in the Arenal region, hands down. Every room offers the exact same perspective of the once-active volcano, and you can't get much closer than this. Located two-and-a-half hours north of San Jose, Arenal Volcano stands 5,480 ft tall and is located at the centre of Arenal Volcano National Park. The devastation caused by its last eruption in 2010 is still apparent when looking at the surrounding forest, and the national park can only be accessed with a guide. It is important to note that the volcano itself cannot be climbed, although there are plenty of other activities to do in the area. These include zip-lining, quad biking, hiking, birdwatching, a visit to the hanging bridges, taking a dip in the natural hot springs and enjoying a peaceful boat tour across Lake Arenal.
