Things to Do Around the Volcanoes and Cloud Forests

The volcanoes and cloud forests of Costa Rica create one big natural playground, with zip-wiring through tree canopies, horse-riding up the mountains and bird watching from the hanging bridges of Arenal National Park just some examples of the activities on offer here. Canopy tours through the Monteverde Rainforest provide the perfect opportunity to either see the rainforest from a completely different (and slightly faster-moving) angle via zip-wire, or at slower pace, walking with a guide over the bridges of the forest. Whichever way you choose to experience the beauty of Costa Rica, we're here to help, with our top recommendations for things to do around the volcanoes and cloud forests.
