Tours

 

Lost Canyon AdventuresThe manager at The Springs said that this is more popular than the better known canopy tours. Everyone we've talked to that has done this tour was thrilled. It is unique and a lot of fun if you don't have a fear of heights.
Hanging Bridges TourArenal Hanging Bridges is within a 618 acre reserve of primary forest. A visit consists of traversing 15 bridges from 5 to 100 meters long that cross the rain forest and a 3 km circuit of interpretive trails. The vistas of the river canyons originating in the reserve provide a way to appreciate the biological riches found in the reserve.
Jaco Beach Area Day Tours - There are a lot of interesting day tours in this area so we thought it would be best to let you select between an exciting Horse Back Riding Tour or a Canopy Tour. Your choice is included in the package price.
