The Morning Walk

Included with your stay at Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa is a daily free guided walk along our property trails with our naturalist guide. The walk departs from Reception every morning at 8:30 a.m., and lasts approximately 2.5 hours.


The walk takes you across hanging bridges, through our lush tropical gardens, and into primary and secondary rainforest. Our guide will stop along the way to point out any wildlife and to tell you about the plants and trees of the tropical rainforest that you are seeing. Your destination is the beautiful jungle waterfall of the Danta River. The walking tour finishes by our cattle pastures, where our comfortable, open-air “Jungle Bus” will bring you back to the hotel. Possible wildlife sightings include many of the 500+ species of birds in the forest, howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, spider monkeys, coatis, anteaters, sloths, green iguanas, snakes and insects.
