This tour offers a combination of the Arenal Lake and the Arenal Volcano, it starts at the Dam, and from there we will have the chance to enjoy a 2-hour boat ride. Going around the lake we will see the burned side of the Arenal Volcano.

Also it is possible to see incredible eruptions when the Arenal Volcano is clear.

The area surrounding Arenal National Park is considered an important replenishment region because its waters, which drain into the Arenal Reservoir, are used for the protection of electricity and in fish farming projects in the Moracia Irrigation District. The flora is varied, with species such as the mountain guayabo, freijo, rosewood, chicle tree, balsa and others.

The main species of fauna are the paca, baird's tapir, white-nosed coati, sloth, deer; birds such as parrots, parakeets, resplendent quetzals; and some snakes like the parrot snake, fer-de-lance and boa constrictor.

These snakes can frequently be seen on the paved road which winds through the Arenal area, as the snakes tend to situate themselves on the pavement in the late afternoon; the hot remains heated long after the sun goes down.

This service could be at any time before 4:00 pm
