An exciting ride through a tunnel and over rail bridges takes you across the mountains from former cattle ranch to primary forest. After approximately 30 minutes, you’ll disembark at the Mirador look-out-point, where the closeness of the forest falls away to reveal a breathtaking panorama of towering Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal with its dam and islands, the lush extinct volcano Cerro Chato and majestic San Gerardo Waterfall. They all seem close enough to touch being only 9 km (5.6 mi) away “as the crow flies.”
