If you just want to get off road and get dirty and have a great time while getting in some some great views of the volcano and the area, I highly recommend this tour. We were picked up at the hotel on time. They provide water, but I did bring a small backpack with to carry the camera and a... More

I absolutely hated this place! My group consisted of 8 people ranging in ages from 20-32. The 19 year old leading the group gave us a 2 1/2 minute 'lesson' in how to handle the atv's. Then they take 5 minutes to write down everyone's dinner order. Then they lead you to a mountainside and expect you to off road... More

The Hotel Magic Mountain convinced us to book with these people after arguing we wanted to do the other tour, which I will comment on in another post. Both places were close to our hotel but they convinced us to go here because "they don't work with the other company". We saw a youtube video and it looked fun, not.... More

Overall a great day riding ATVs with the boys. They allowed us some time to get familiar with the ATV's prior to getting after it. We got to ride the ATV's along with get a tour of the volcano side. Our only knock was that they kept us all in line not allowing us to go ride alone. Understandable. I... More

We had a nice time during this outing. It begins in a field, I guess that is to help you feel more comfortable at the controls. Our guide was very helpful and patient. We rode through lots of pastureland and stopped at several places for photo opportunities with Arenal in the background. Our guide had a cooler with cold bottled... More

Scary but fun! Again, the transportation was on time. The best views besides the Zip Lining was during this tour. We saw way more than expected and enjoyed the entire tour. Kevin was our guide and was safe, friendly and professional. He stopped along the way for a water break near a river where there happened to be 3 horses... More

The day started off extremely cloudy, but by we had amazing views of the Arenal Volcano at the end of our tour. I was a passenger and my husband drove, and I was happy for that because I don't think I would have been as daring. On our tour it was only us and one other ATV, so it was... More

If you've never driven an ATV, don't worry, you'll get plenty of instruction, and you'll soon be off-roading almost like a pro, while enjoying amazing views of the volcano and the hills around it. The guides barely speak any English, but that's not what you're there for. Enjoy the views and the riding, don't think too much about what clever... More

My husband and I booked this ATV tour through a company in La Fortuna and were really happy with everything. We went early in the morning to avoid the heat, and they picked us up from our hotel which was a few kilometers outside town. There was only the 2 of us (maybe because we left before 8am), which is... More

We had several of us in the tour -- may be 12 or more ATVs. Some can take one person and others can take two persons. They make you drive it in two places: one near base of the volcano and the the other on remote public unpaved road with hardly any traffic. ATVs are fun if you know what... More
