Arenal visits that can be done without tour operators?

Hi!

We are in arenal for just 3 1/2 days and there are so many activities to do at a significant cost. We are trying to figure out whether there are some things we can do without a tour such as trekking on arenal volcano? Hanging bridges? Fortuna waterfall?? We have a rental car so it should enable us to be more free. Would love your advice/feedback!

You can do all three on your own. Entry fee for each of them is 10 US$ per person. For wildlife drive to Arenal Observatory Lodge, and hike their trails. Entry fee (was) 6 US$. Drive also the road to El Castillo, nice views over volcano.

And in El Castillo, you can visit the Butterfly Conservatory. It's pretty amazing.

Yes -- great views of the whole "valley" as well as the volcano.
