Cerro Chato Hike

tour cerro chato

For those who are looking for a physically demanding hike, Cerro Chato Volcano, which has had no volcanic activity for the past 3,500 years, is the perfect choice. One can appreciate the changes from rainforest to cloud forest while climbing the peak, measuring approximately 3,700 ft.

You will begin the tour in Fortuna and ride in a minibus around Volcano Arenal to the Hotel Observatory Lodge. A guide will accompany you during your hike and will teach you about the geological history as well as the surrounding nature that inhabits Volcano Arenal’s older brother. We will start the steep hike to the summit of Cerro Chato crossing a very compact, primary rainforest on our way. After another short climb, we will begin our descent. This will give us a beautiful view of Arenal and the valley of San Carlos. As we pass through through the rainforest, we'll hopefully see various birds and other wild animals (though viewing the enormous size plants alone make this tour worthwhile).

To top off this exciting tour, we will visit the breathtaking waterfall of Fortuna. Towering over 200 feet tall and surrounded by exotic vegetation, this majestic beauty attracts about 100,000 visitors every year.

This tour includes a 45 minute bus ride to our destination, about a 3 hour challenging hike of Cerro Chato, and a maximum stay of 2 hours at the Fortuna waterfall.

Departure time: 8:00 am

Return time: 2:45 pm

Includes: Transportation to/from La Fortuna, park and waterfall entrance, bilingual naturalist guide, box lunch, snacks and drinks.

Price: $105 per person

Venado Caves Tour

Venado caving tourThe amazing Venado Caves were formed during the Miocene period, fifteen to twenty million years ago. For many years they were below sea level. Due to tectonic movements they surfaced and are waiting to be explored by you.

The length of the tour into the caves is one and a half hours. During this time you will find marine fossils, plenty of bats, spiders and crickets.

Feel the adrenaline while exploring the cave from the upper part and while walking through the river and waterfalls.
