Option 1: Guided Hike to La Fortuna Waterfall
Located into a spectacular rainforest and over 70 meters high, the Fortuna River Waterfall is an attraction hard to miss on your visit through La Fortuna. Born from the river that carries the same name, this cascade shares its boundaries with the Arenal-Monteverde protected area, housing wealth of wildlife and becoming very important for the conservation of tributaries that feed drinking water to surrounding towns. Our guide will accompany you and point the most important details of this rich area, where we have the option of watching the beautiful waterfall from the viewpoint, or walk about 300 meters in a very steep but safe pathway and get very close to it. Swimming in the river is allowed, but not near the waterfall.

Note: The walk is only recommended for people in regular shape.

This certification provides you extra assurance that you will always be completely safe since the guides are fully trained in first aid, vertical rescue, and have ample knowledge of the Flora and Fauna of this beautiful country.

Enjoy this thrilling aerial adventure of approximately 3 km, starting from a tower 13 meters high and glide your way down 8 cables made with the best galvanized stainless steel, ranging from 80 meters to 750 meters in length, with an average height of 38 meters.

Generally, on this special pathway, designed for all the family, it is very common that we can find these little green mammals. Even if they try to blend in with the flora, our expert guides know their secrets, so they do not hide for a long time. In addition, we can enjoy many fabulous plants that will teach us curious facts.
