It started out really slow through a farm which was nothing special. Luckily one guide split the crowd and took the adventurous people closer to the volcano base through the forest which definitely helped the trip. The last part of the ride was down a dusty dirt road which again was not that special. The meal afterwards was good. If... More

We did this trip and had a blast. We are athletic people who are hesitant about ATVs and safety, but this company was all about safety, but still having fun! Equipment was clean and worked well. Great for all levels.

My Husband and I took the ATV tour (sharing one larger ATV) during our recent stay in Arenal. Our guide (Keilor?) was great fun, and with only 4 people in the group we had a blast. I found the 'practice' session over the road actually scarier than the 'tour' itself - if I'd had my own ATV to drive I'd... More

My wife and I, who usually don't do these kinds of things on vacation, chose to ride the roads and trails near Arenal Volcano. The staff applied excellent customer service, taught us to ride an ATV safely, and led us for 2-3 hours around the Volcano, surrounding countryside, and a stream to cool off in and wash the dust away....

I had owned an ATV for several years before moving to Costa Rica so when I had a chance to take my new wife for the first time we jumped at it. The training course that the guide took us on was actually more difficult than the ride it's self. The equipment that they rent is all in good condition... More

I have done a lot of ATV tour but this one by far have been my favor, from the price, ATV, Guide, and the tour itself. You would get dirty but you would have the best time. Love the river they take you at the end and the food.

The three of us went there just a couple of days ago. It is low season in Costa Rica and it rained a lot these days. We didn't expect much from it. So we were pretty surprised - this was the best ATV ride ever! We took several rides in different countries and really loved this one. Tyler, our guide,... More

We had taken a ATV tour recently. We booked through anywherecostarica.com To start off, the guide was very rude and unhelpful. The trip has 2 parts. First they take you to a grassland right across the hotel la Pradera. You basically follow the guy in front. Most of it is a flat terrain. There are stretches were you ride on... More
