The naturalist guide will explain everything you see along the way, including unique Costa Rican flora and fauna, as well as the history of the property.

Then you’ll stop for a hot beverage with cookies, at a great look out, where in clear days there is a panorama view of Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal. the extinct volcano Cerro Chatro and the San Gerardo Waterfall. . During this stop there’s an optional 20 minute hike along a forest trail with the guide. It’s an easy short walk but with natural trails, so during the rainy season it could get a little muddy. Or you can stay at the viewing platform, and enjoy the views.
