Rising above the lush green rainforest that skirts its base, the active Arenal Volcano frames the skyline with near perfect conical symmetry. There is a certain mystique about being next to the primal force of an active volcano that people love. Not to mention there are added benefits like natural volcanic hot springs, and healing volcanic mineral clay that is a featured ingredient in Arenal’s famed spas.

Lake Arenal is a gorgeous, long manmade reservoir stretching 33 square miles (85 sq.km.) at the base of Volcano Arenal. Its hydroelectric plant produces nearly 12% of Costa Rica’s electric energy. Lake Arenal enjoys a world-class reputation among windsurfers and sailboarders for its steady supply of strong winds. Fishing is equally popular on the lake for rainbow bass.
