Puentes Colgantes del Arenal, San Carlos

4.3
#1 of 7 in Things to do in San Carlos
Hike trails and traverse hanging bridges at Puentes Colgantes del Arenal, a beautiful, easygoing rainforest hike, culminating at an impressive waterfall. Hire a local guide, who will point out the vast diversity of wildlife living in the forests, from impressive flora, to tree frogs, monkeys, and snakes. After all that, rest and refuel in the restaurant at the entrance to the park, which serves Costa Rican dishes. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear, as you won’t be allowed on the site in flip flops. Bring a waterproof poncho, and, of course, your camera. To visit Puentes Colgantes del Arenal and other attractions in San Carlos, use our San Carlos trip builder app .

  • Place has ample parking and is easily accessible, is a ride that can be done in a day, travel the bridges has a beautiful landscape, but they might have more sites rest with benches or places to sit and at the end of the tour, a good choice is almo RCE in the restaurant of the place. The food has good flavor, good attention and divine view of the Arenal Volcano.

  • $ 37 with transfers included. Walk through a tropical forest and crossing 3 or 4 suspension bridges. When you go to Rio Celeste will be the same without the bridges and see a beautiful waterfall.
