The main reason to visit Arenal is to bask in the shadow of Volcan Arenal. The only volcano in Costa Rica to be constantly active since it woke up after 400 years after the big eruption back in 1968. Apparently this is one of the top 10 most active volcanoes in the world, not sure if it is, but either way it is still very spectacular.
If you are not too interested in volcanoes, there is still plenty to do in town. You can go white water rafting, hike to a waterfall or take your pick from the many hot springs to rest your volcano weary bones. Tabacon Hot Springs comes heavily recommended so long as you have the budget to cover the steep entry fees.
