ZONA NORE / VOLCÁN ARENAL

 

The summit of the Arenal Volcano, rising 1,633 meters above sea level and continuously active since 1968, towers far above the Arenal Volcano National Park and northern plains overlooking a wind-swept lake and pristine cloud forests reserves. An incredibly diverse population of wildlife awaits you in this part of Costa Rica.

 

Driving along winding roads, you climb higher into the surrounding mountains, where temperatures drop to a refreshing 70-75 degrees F. Off in the distance one can see the dark green and blue silhouettes of the Guanacaste and Tilaran mountain ranges.

The ideal way to visit this region is by car. The landscapes as you drive along twisting roads make for incredible photographs. Of the 850 bird species identified in Costa Rica, 600 are permanent residents in their region. Don't forget the binoculars!!

The weather in this particular region tends to characterize itself with warm daytime temperatures (low to mid 80's) and relatively high humidity. There are intermittent rain showers that usually pass quickly. From late February to early May, the rain lessens in frequency which allows for fantastic skyscapes during sunrise and sunset.
