The Northern Highlands

By northern highlands, we refer to the mountain ranges of Guanacaste and Tilarán.

They are separated by the Arenal reservoir and the subsequent lowland, which extends up to the "Lago de Nicaragua”.

The Cordillera de Tilarán forms the watershed between the Atlantic and Pacific. The best known attraction in the region is the active Volcán Arenal, currently the most  active volcano in Central America, which came into action in July 2009. Directly next to the Arenal volcano you can find a reservoir that is used to produce energy. The Arenal Lake is internationally recognized as one of the best windsurfing areas. Less known, but more exciting, is the cloud forest region around Monteverde. Monteverde is a nature reserve that offers many different hiking trails through a beautiful nature. Here you can see countless trees and plant species; the diversity of fauna is unsurpassed. Close to Monteverde is the town Santa Elena, a very interesting place as a starting point for exploring nature.

Even less known is the Tenorio Volcano, which is extinguished for a long time now and you can do excellent hiking in its origins. The Rio Celeste is a sky blue-colored river that originates at the Tenorio Volcano. With our tours you can experience how the water gets its blue-sky color. Just a few miles west of the Rio Celeste, you follow straight line to get into the wetlands of Caño Negro and the Río Frío. This is the most important wetland in Costa Rica and it is, of course, protected. The Wildlife in the area is extremely diverse.

The Rio Frio opens into the Rio San Juan in Nicaragua. The Rio San Ramon flows into the river as well. You can take beautiful boat trips to Nicaragua from here. Animal watching tours are also available in the foreground.
