Nature & Eco Tours Departing From Arenal & La Fortuna


At The Real Deal Tours we have every possible Arenal Nature and Eco tour in the Northern Arenal region that you can imagine. Many of Costa Rica’s tourists are drawn here because of the towering Arenal volcano whose summit reaches over 5,400 feet and is still very active! It doesn’t matter where you are in this region, you’ll have a perfect view of the majestic Arenal volcano. If you’re an avid hiker, you can hike near the summit and get the most spectacular panoramic view of the entire region. With such a diverse population of wildlife you can help but become a spectator to the various animals you will come across including monkeys, sloths and tropical birds.

However, you didn’t come to Costa Rica just to watch the volcano Arenal right? Aside from the Arenal volcano, there are spectacular waterfalls in La Fortuna, crystalline blue rivers hidden in the rainforest, bat caves to explore, and so much more!! 

Lake Arenal and the many rivers are another major attraction for the Northern Arenal region. The Real Deal Tours also offers various Arenal Nature and Eco tours that include floating or paddling down beautiful rivers on your own kayak, canoe, or even a pontoon. A definite must when visiting Costa Rica! 

With so many Arenal Nature and Eco tours to choose from, you may have to make a second trip to Costa Rica!
