Definitely worth the visit! Arenal is situated in a lush and beautiful landscape. It's Costa Rica! Duh! You'll repeatedly find yourself scanning the treeline for raptors and t-rex. :) Please don't bring plastics or non-vegan items *. Leave the place in equal or better condition as you found it; otherwise, don't come at all *. *(This goes for everywhere in the world.) Enjoy! :)
