Where is "the Bridge"??

We will have a car and there have been several comments on watching Arenal Volcano from the bridge. Where is "the Bridge"? Is it within the National Park or somewhere else?

Once you are at the Arenal NAtional Park main entrance...keep going for about 15 minutes...hard to miss since most of the time people are there...

The bridge is between the entrance to Arenal National Park and Arenal Observatory Lodge. It's a small, one-lane bridge but has a parking lot nearby and gives a wonderful view of Arenal Volcano. A small stream runs under the bridge so it's a good photo opportunity during the day.

Are the hanging bridges inside Arenal National Park?

Also, how far is La Fortuna Waterfall from the park?

We will also have a car.

Thanks.

Take a look here -- www.arenal.net -- they have a good map that shows where a lot of things are located.

The bridge is about halfway to the observation lodge. Most of the time you will see someone setup with some good camera gear when you drive over the bridge taking shots of the lava boulders.

Take the road that swings south west around the volcano. It is gravel and bumpy. Take your time and you will not miss the bridge. If you hit the gates to the Observation lodge then turn around and surely can not miss it then,

Good luck.
