Lake Arenal - El Castillo
This ride takes us on an old road connecting the Arenal Dam with the main entrance to the Arenal Volcano National Park. From there we go towards the village of El Castillo, biking on a quiet lane surrounded by dense forest and a few cattle farms. Along the ride we often see howler monkeys, coatis, and many tropical birds like toucans, egrets, and king fishers. We’ll stop for a picnic on the shore of Lake Arenal where it’s possible to swim. The volcano in visible during most of the ride and we can often hear its rumbles while we bike.
