Arenal Activities for Old Bones and Young Hearts

Jump to last reply

We are spending 3 nights at Lost Iguana (Dec 21-24) and trying to plot out activities. Here are my questions
1) We want to do Hanging Bridges with a private guide one morning early. Lost Iguana says that they can get us tickets when we arrive. They do not book private guides. I have read opposite views on getting a guide on site. Some posters say they hang out around the entrance; others says no one was around - I couldn't tell which months folks were there.
Any recommendations for private guide?
Should we wait until we arrive or buy tickets online in advance because of the holidays?

2) I was hoping to hike to La Fortuna waterfall. Our hosts at Villa DeCary (our B&B on Lake Arenal after Lost Iguana) said we should skip it when I relayed that my husband had multiple fractures in his ankle/leg last year and I tweaked my MCL skiing this past January. Is this reasonable caution or scardy cat mode?

3) What can we expect to see on the Twilight Float trip (besides bugs) offered by Lost Iguana Lodge?

4) Like Allyboy, we are still debating zip lining, I'm 67 and hubby is 74 with a heart condition. Opinions? Which company?

5) We'll have a car and plan to go in to La Fortuna, visit the Rescue Center, walk around. We have also booked lunch and afternoon at Tabacon.

6) Since we will have opportunities for bird watching at Tortuguero and during 6 days on the Osa peninsula (3 Drake Bay area, 3 Bosque del Cabo), would we see anything very different by taking the morning bird walk offered by Lost Iguana?

7) Any other suggestions?
