At the foothills of Volcano Arenal, one of the ten most active volcanoes of the world, is the town of La Fortuna. From here to Lake Arenal, the largest man-made lake in Costa Rica, is a beautiful road dotted with hotels, natural hot springs and parks.
In a private reserve right before the lake is one of those can’t-miss-this activities for the whole family: The Hanging Bridges of Arenal.
