Selvatura Park Adventure

At Selvatura Park you will enjoy some of those adventurous activities that have made Costa Rica famous for: the canopy zip-line tour, tree-top walkway, a butterfly garden, a hummingbird garden, and much more, everything surrounded by lush vegetation amidst the Monteverde Cloud Forest.

The Tree-Top Canopy Zip-Line at Selvatura has some of the longest cables in Costa Rica and is the only one truly immersed in virgin forest. The tour is made up of 15 cables and 18 viewing platforms, traversing over two miles of forest and combining the thrill of the zip line with a unique perspective of the tree top canopy.

The Tree-Top Walkway is the ideal cloud forest experience for those who wish to explore the beauty of the canopy at their own pace and appreciate the incredible array of vegetation and exotic bird life that the region has to offer.

Selvatura’s stunning Butterfly Garden is one of the largest on the continent. At 300ft long and 90ft wide, with a huge 50ft dome ceiling, the giant garden is host to 50 species of butterflies. Accurate and sensitive temperature controlling enables the survival of species from a range of altitudes and climate conditions throughout Costa Rica. Take a guided tour through this fascinating live exhibit and learn about the life cycle, special behaviors and evolution of these unique creatures.

Finally, a visit to the Selvatura Hummingbird Garden is not to be missed. Here visitors can observe up to 14 species of the tiny, lively colored birds as they amaze you with their spectacularly acrobatic aerial maneuvers. This is a rare treat for photography lovers! The garden also features a native plant display, relaxing Waterfalls and an ideally situated picnic area.

Tabacon Hot Springs and Thermal Pools

While in the Arenal Volcano National Park and La Fortuna area, a visit to the world-famous Tabacon Hot Springs and Spa, the only hot springs in the Arenal Volcano area that is completely natural, is a must! At Tabacon, the water flows by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools, waterfalls, and cascades and filling in the pools throughout the resort.

As the underground Tabacon River flows through the magma in the volcano, the springs absorb minerals. It is well known that natural hot springs provide many benefits stemming from various chemical, physical and biological effects, the most notable is relaxing tense and tired muscles. When visiting Tabacon Hot Springs in the evening, you will also enjoy a scrumptious buffet-dinner, the perfect treat to complete your visit to the Arenal Volcano National Park region.

Waterfall Canyoning

The Waterfall Canyoning Tour is a soft yet adventurous activity. No experience necessary, family friendly! The tour starts when we pick you up at your hotel for a 30 minute 4×4 drive. After a safety talk, you will put your gear on, and then a short trek to the top of the first waterfall where we start our descent. There are 4 rappels ranging in height from 165 feet to 45 feet, and all are guaranteed to get your blood moving! We have constructed trails that lead you from waterfall to waterfall through the canyon; it’s like being in a national park. Then a short trek out of the canyon will lead you back to our base for lunch.
