4 days in Arenal - what activities are a must?

Hi,

I will be in Arenal for 4 days in early August as part of a 16 day honeymoon in Costa Rica. What activities/ adventures are a must for my wife and me while we are there?

Thanks for your help!

Congratulations...Hot Springs...you can try Eco Termales....Sky Treck Zip lines and canopy...Cano Negro Tour...LA Fortuna waterfall...and maybe one good dinner at Don Rufinos...great food...kind of slow some times but that means that is fresh food...

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

I would say the white water rafting. We just did that tour last week and it was great. We used Wave Expeditions, really enjoyed their guides and the meal after the ride was terrific (one of the best casado we had!).

Zip lining can be pretty fun too.

Just plan some time to soak in all the beauty Costa Rica has to offer, different things in each region. Just overall one of our best vacations.

Best wishes for a happy trip and happy life.
