In north central Costa Rica, near the town of La Fortuna, Arenal volcano rises majestically above the lowland plains surrounding it. Beneath the volcano’s steaming peak, the area offers natural beauty, amazing wildlife, and plenty of outdoor activities for visitors including canyoning, horseback riding, rafting, mountain biking, ‘zip line’ tours, canopy bridge walks and a gondola tramway above the forest. At day’s end, one can relax in an area resort that offers soothing thermal waters heated by the volcano. There is abundant wildlife in the area; some of the animals that may be seen are spider, howler and white-faced monkeys, coatis, agoutis, and peccaries, and many bird species like keel-bill toucans, chesnut-mandible toucans, motmots, jacamars, tanagers, honey creepers, hummingbirds. Arenal is a place that should definitely be included with any visit to the country
