8 Hour Hanging Bridges & Waterfall Tour in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

The Arenal Volcano and the surrounding area is home to some spectacular wildlife and natural beauty.

Join your naturalist guide on an adventure to visit some of the highlights that this area is famous for. Our day starts with a guided walk via the hanging bridges while seeing what life is like up in the treetops by taking in the sights and sounds of the rainforest. The Hanging Bridges offer an amazing view of the rainforest. This easy, guided hike is wonderful for nature lovers of all ages. Along the trails inside this private natural reserve of nearly 250 hectares of tropical rainforest, you might encounter leaf-cutter ants, wild boars, vipers, tarantulas, poisonous dart frog, toucans, monkeys and sloths.

Your next stop will be a visit to the impressive La Fortuna waterfall. Dropping 70 meters into a bright blue pool, La Fortuna waterfall in Arenal paints a perfect postcard of the Costa Rican jungle and is usually one of the highlights of an Arenal trip for its beautiful views and scenery. Once you hike down and reach the base of the waterfall to the left is a lovely calm water pool area that is good for swimming. The climb back up does involve climbing stairs.

After your hike out of the waterfall canyon we head to lunch, where guests will enjoy a culinary journey to celebrate the delicious and traditional foods of Costa Rica.
A visit to the kitchen of Dona  Mara will be the highlight of your visit to the Arenal Volcano area. Our private authentic cooking experience, set in the kitchen of Dona Mara in the heart of the Chachagua rainforest, is the perfect place to learn about Costa Rican food and getting a a taste of the flavors of local traditions.

Dona Mara, a local woman from the Chachagua region near the Arenal Volcano,   will welcome you into her kitchen and present the day’s menu. Dona Mara is well known in the area for her delicious local cuisine. Learn alongside her how to prepare delicious “Tortillas Caseras” (Tortillas made by hand) from grinding the corn to hand patting the tortillas to toasting them on her wood-burning stove.

Come to the table and savor all of authentic local specialties on Dona Maras open air terrace.
