Today we will make the drive to the Arenal Volcano. This is the perfectly cone-shaped volcano that you think of when somebody mentions a volcano. You will be staying at the Five-Star Resort, Tabacon. This hotel is best known for having some of the finest hotsprings anywhere on the planet. The hotel offers very easy access when dealing with a group allowing us to come and go for our activities. This will allow us to spend the mornings active and relaxing in the hotsprings in the afternoons!
We will get traveling after breakfast and arrive to the Tabacon resort just after lunch. This is a travel day of mostly straight roads with few mountain climbs or decents making it easy for those that don't do rides well. We will also make some stops along at different fruit stands and other interesting stops. The afternoon will be spent enjoying the hotsprings. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)
July 01st ---- Zipline & Hanging Bridges (Tabacon Resort)
Today is a day of fun and adventure! We will make our way to the zipline that now has a new feature. We will have Reese and Jake ready for this adventure. We will be ziplining on three new cables that hang 700ft above the forest floor. Then we will float on tubes down an creek with class I & II rapids and make our way back to the top. Those that are not in the mood for such adventure can opt to do the zipline and tram ride or just tram ride. The tubing adventure is a blast and really a lot easier than you would think, JUST HOLD ON!
After the morning of adventure at the zipline area we will head to the Hanging Bridges. Here
your naturalist guide will give you a tour of the wonders of the rainforest. If some want to get back to the hotel with the young ones after the tram ride we can arrange for that no problem.
