Tour information

The hike starts from the Arenal Observatory Lodge where you can observe the majestic Arenal Volcano and the beautiful Arenal Lake; the journey begins through a Pine forest and typical pretty landscapes of the area up to the foothills of the Chato Hill, here we will take a break of 5 minutes to prepare and start to climb the hill.

The trip is done by the mountain through nature trails, where it is possible to see many animals and enjoying the lush vegetation.
While in the tour, the naturalist guide will explain everything you want to know about the interesting natural history of Chato Hill.

After walking of about 1 hour and a half, we will reach the hill top, where you can see the amazing green lagoon of the "Chato" (old volcanic crater), and the beautiful surrounding mountains where you can take very beautiful pictures.

We began to descend, and after about 15 minutes we'll reach the lagoon, where we can rest and eat something to continue the path (Box Lunch).

After loading energies, we'll continue hiking this time going down, to get to the Green Lagoon Hotel where the mini-bus awaits for us to take us back to where we were picked up.
