Night walk in Rainforest - Next to the Arenal Volcano!

Night walk in Rainforest - Next to the Arenal Volcano!

We will enjoy a very educative and fascinating walk through a forest trail -specially designed for night walks- where we will gradually immerse into the nocturnal life of the woods. Ecoglide Arenal Park is surrounded by rivers, pastures, forests, mountains, gardens, and its core is formed by the lush vegetation of a type of tropical humid forest that links to the protected Arenal Volcano National Park area. We will start walking around the ponds –an oasis of life-, where we can find some amphibians such as the poison-dart frog, leopard frog, Ghost glass frog, red-eyed leaf frog, bullfrog, wet forest toad, just to mention a few. Our expert guide will teach us every detail about this marvelous ecosystem and with some luck, we may find some inhabitants of the night such as bats, spiders, butterflies, birds, basilisks, and snakes among others. Which made everything more interesting is the way these species interact with each other within the vegetation and the ponds.
