About to take off down the Arenal Zip Line

Views of Arenal Volcano surrounded by jungle
A opportunity to have an up close and personal encounter with one of the top 10 most active volcanos in the world may be an alarming and somewhat daunting prospect to many, but combining spectacular and breathtaking surroundings with a chance to witness a volcano in full flow (excuse the pun!), results in the Arenal Volcano National Park being a place definately worth checking out. The Volcano itself, set amongst a wildlife infested rainforest, is located roughly 16km west of La Fortuna, the areas most popular and well catered for local town. This is in fact where the majority of tours operate from and due to the number of hostels and budget hotels it provides an ideal location for any visitor who wishes to spend some time in the area.
