Protecting our native habitats is vitally important. Get lost in the serenity of nature at Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park and see what animals have made it their home. There's a great range of things to do close by. Watch water bubbling beneath a blanket of steam at Tabacon Hot Springs. This geothermal attraction, a result of heated water rising from the earth's crust, is undisputedly one of the area's hottest spots! Still have time on your hands? Up for some fun on the water? Then slap on the suntan lotion and dive headfirst into some invigorating water sports at FlyZone Wakeboard School.
