Tour information

A perfect activity to challenge your physical condition. The degree of difficulty we will face uphill is going to challenge us constantly.

The hike starts from Green Lagoon Hotel, where you can observe the majestic Arenal volcano. From the Cerro Chato base, we will begin the journey through the rainforest and very beautiful landscapes typical of this area.

The trip is done by the mountain through nature trails, where it is possible to enjoy the lush vegetation and some fauna.
While in the tour, the naturalist guide will explain everything you want to know about the interesting natural history of Chato Hill.
After hiking about 2 hours, we will reach the hill top, from this point you will see the amazing green lagoon of the "Chato" (old volcanic crater), and the beautiful surrounding mountains where you can take very beautiful pictures.

We begin to descend, and after about 15 minutes we'll reach the lagoon, where we can rest and swimg at the natural green pool.

After loading energies, we will go back to the starting point where the mini-bus will take us to the famous La Fortuna Waterfall; There we will get some fruits and drinks to continue down over 500 steps to reach the base where we can take a bath and swimming. After an hour we will return to the mini-bus, this time to go to have a typical lunch. Finally we will go back to our hotel in La Fortuna.
