Located 1657 meters above the sea level (5437 feet) there is inactive Arenal Volcano which is a must destination for many tourists.
Although it is sleeping now it used to be one of the most active volcanoes in Costa Rica. It had a great influence on its surroundings and people living nearby. Besides the beautiful volcano there is also a huge Arenal Lake, where you can go boating, fishing and windsurfing. The National Park around the volcano has a lush forest where you can hike. If you want to relax, we highly recommend the hot springs. The pools are filled with hot or cold water, around them there are waterfalls as well as bars.
