Set in the placid cloud forests of Costa Rica’s Central Valley region, the San Luis Canopy Tour will take you on an exhilarating and safe adventure through lush, green canopy and across the majestic “Cataratitas River”.
Though customer enjoyment is the main objective, San Luis Canopy Tour ensures safeness above all as a keystone principle: all personnel and facilities carry up-to-date certifications from the Costa Rica Institute of Tourism. San Luis Canopy takes pride in their credentials and by them guarantees with confidence that this tour is among the most professional, informative, and enjoyable in Costa Rica.
San Luis Canopy has 12 different zip lines and 18 platforms, plus their famous “Tarzan Swing Trails” and “Fly like Superman”.
After this exciting experience, the journey continues by traversing diverse plantations with agricultural products, including pineapple and plantain farms, mango groves, ornamental plants and even cattle ranches until arriving to the small town of La Fortuna, and stopping to enjoy lunch at a cozy restaurant with a magnificent view of the volcano.
The impressive Arenal Volcano is a magnificent natural wonder that is situated in La Fortuna (The Fortune) of San Carlos, previously assumed to be dormant, until in 1968, when there was a major eruption. It is now visited by tourists from all around the world hoping for the opportunity to witness volcanic activity, such as the white plumes of smoke that emanate from the conical shaped behemoth.
Then you will go on to relax at one of the best hot springs in the area, where you will revel in the cleansing and rejuvenating effects of the thermal waters, as well as an optional massage or other special treatments, if you choose to, these must be reserved ahead of time to ensure availability. Spa treatments are not included and are payable directly at the resort.
Tabacon Hot Springs combines the four elements of nature; the heat of the volcano, the flowing waters of the hot springs, the pure air of the rainforest, and the fertile earth of the Fortuna de San Carlos region.
There are five main springs that source highly mineralized water, heated underground by the Arenal Volcano’s magma. You will find dozens of cascading waterfalls and warm pools along the riverbed, of varying temperatures, water flows and degree of privacy.
An essential part of exploring the wondrous world of the Tabacon Hot Springs is soaking in the cascading thermal waterfalls. This natural hydrotherapy is a surefire way to achieve proper relaxation. The river-pool temperatures range from 72 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
And for a perfect ending, before going back to San José, a wonderful dinner will be served with a great view of the volcano so that you do not miss any opportunity to look at the classically shaped volcano.
