There is also a vivid blue pool naturally created where two rivers meet.

The local cloud forest is home to a great diversity of wildlife including plenty of birds, primates, coatis, reptiles and amphibians and even Baird’s tapir can occasionally be seen around dusk at the lake.

You will be pleased to hear that [our] party returned safely from Costa Rica… We had a most wonderful holiday. All the arrangements made for us came up trumps. The drivers always arrived early [and] were keen to stop and show us any wild life they spotted as we travelled, also were able to identify any bird we had pointed out. All guides were excellent and eager to share their knowledge. As for rain we did not see a drop and had two days of being able to see the top of Arenal…We were impressed by [your representatives], and I found [them] to be most helpful.
