The Arenal volcano is continuously erupting and provides a beautiful view at night. Due to the volcanic activity there are many hot springs. It is said that Arenal is one of the romantic places in Costa Rica and many honeymooners enjoy the area's resorts and spas.
Monteverde, the green mount, the perfect name for a small town nestled in lush Costa Rican cloud forest. Monteverde is most known for its incredible diversity of species. Founded in the 1950s by a group of Quakers from the US. The group originally used the area for dairy farming and later created the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve. This wise conservation project has turned Monteverde into a major tourist attraction, about a quarter of a million tourists visit every year.
