We did the trek. It was a nice hike. The bridges were nice to stop and take in the rainforest. The on-site restaurant was also great. Good food with wonderful views.

Spent 50 usd to enter with no views of the volcano, crappy roads and no hikes of less than 3 miles. Not worth the money or car ride

This is something you need to see when you visit La Fortuna. The vulcano is super beautiful especially when you come closer. Try to get a guide because this will give you the opportunity to learn more about the history of the Vulcano and Costa Rica as well. We had the pleasure of being guided by Edwin who was super nice and had a lot of interesting things to tell about Costa Rica and it’s nature!

Wow! This is such a beautiful park! We drove around the other sector first, but the Peninsula Sector is where it's worth spending your time (unless Arenal is in view). The path is so well maintained. The restrooms are very nice and clean. I loved the watch tower and the lake view at the end. You should definitely walk both of the trails. We took the "direct" route out and then took the "jungle" trail on our way back. We saw black vultures, a flock of montezuma oropendola, and tons of insects.

Hiked around the lower part of the volcano. Wound up being a 4 mile hike, but it was very easy. Not a lot of elevation gain unless you wanted to check out the lava flow, then there was a short hike up the side of the mountain. It was relatively easy and once we were up there the view was beautiful. We saw some frogs and HUGE spiders. Saw the very large and old Ceiba Tree
