Set foot into one of Costa Rica’s most popular and important wildlife reserves in the country with a naturalist guide! Your tour begins with a complimentary pick up from your hotel where your tour guide will transport you to the beautiful Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park. If you are lucky, you will be able to enjoy some truly spectacular views of Arenal Volcano from afar and see how its sheer size dominates that landscape. With your entrance fees covered, your guide will then begin the guided nature tour through Mistico Park. Make frequent stops along the way to observe the huge variety of native fauna and flora along the way. See ginormous jungle trees that tower above and a host of incredible animals that call this beautiful park home including monkeys, sloths, agoutis, lizards, snakes, frogs, insects and a huge variety of birds including toucans, parrots, motmots, and much more. Your guide will be sure to give detailed explanations of the various plants and animals that you may discover. The trail also takes you to a number of hanging bridges, which the park is most famous for. Cross a number of valleys and hill sides on this hike which, on a clear day, affords incredible views of La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano National Park as well as a birds-eye view of the forests canopy below. Finally, head back to the parks entrance where you will reboard your van for the return trip back to your accommodation where your guided tour will conclude.

Animals can be seen throughout the day at Mistico, but please note that usually the best time for wildlife is during the early morning which is why we recommend the 8.00am tour. We ask that you follow the instructions of the guides and do not wonder off the trail. Please note that, though our guides will do their best to track down animals, we must play by mother natures rules and observations of particular animals is not guaranteed.
