One-Day Tours in Costa Rica

Visiting Costa Rica means experiencing a myriad of emotions regardless of where you are–a green clear mountain or deep into the tropical forest fog. Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park is an adventure oasis where unforgettable memories are inevitable and nature is experienced firsthand.

If your stay in the country is short, one-day activities in La Fortuna–truly one of the country’s most magical places–will undoubtedly fulfill your travel expectations. If you agree that a tour should involve both comfort and excitement, follow our one-day activity recommendations–specially designed for those with a tight schedule who seek to be amazed by Costa Rica’s fascinating nature.

For landscapes and aquatic environments, the combined option of Hanging Bridges Walk and Boat Riding tours in Lake Arenal is the perfect choice. It lasts approximately 4 hours and starts in the park’s tropical sites, then moves to the hanging bridge, where the forest will enchant both your body and soul. Tour start times are 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Hanging Bridges Walk offers the opportunity to explore a forest combining vegetation from humid climate and low lands. There are over 700 plant species–surely a colorful scene. The best part arrives with the Boat Riding Tour in Lake Arenal, a water mirror that is home to hundreds of fish. Its clear waters will reflect a spectacular view: the mighty Arenal Volcano and the surrounding dark-green forests.
