Great Way to experience Costa Rica

The ATV ride was fun on the farm with the mud and rain. Then we went on a road to Arenal River, which was interesting to see the area and experience the scenery.

Ok...at first I was a little hesitant about it. I have rode an ATV before but not an experienced driver at all. My sister really wanted to do it for the mud factor so we went. I would NOT recommend this for young children or elder adults. It could be a difficult route for them. I got stuck 3 or... More

There were 3 of us that signed up for the ATV tour. We all has such a fantastic time. I even got a pink ATV, which is my favorite color. The guide was awesome and really made the experience better. We first started across the street from the ATV location in a big open field like area. There was mud... More

We were referred by Arenal Observatory Lodge, but I don't blame them at all. We paid for 2 double ATV's (our 2 boys would ride with us)-$99 each. We wanted to experience our first time on ATV in Costa Rica. We arrived, explained it was our first time, signed a waiver, chose a meal to eat afterwards from a list,... More

We did this tour after it was raining for a day and a half so we got what we paid for - we got back all over in mud! It was only 4 people plus the guide. First he took us across the road to the farm. We road dirt roads, bumps and hills and covered each other in mud... More

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
