Tour Description

On this day of adventure you will participate on a full energy tour, climbing up and down through the rainforest for about 4 hours. You will be heading to Chato Lake, discovering it´s beauty and exuberant surroundings of flora and fauna. Enjoy a delicious snack next to the lake and continue our hike down towards Fortuna´s waterfall. The Cerro Chato Hiking Tour takes place at the southeast flank of Arenal Volcano; the smaller Chato Volcano is actually an older Arenal Volcano’s brother living in the shadow of its boisterous young brethren. The truncated volcanic cone rises up to 1.140 meters and it has had no registered volcanic activity for the past 3500 years, about the time when Arenal was just beginning to be born.
