After Zip lining we had all day of nothing to do. With the recommendation from our hotel, we decided to go ATVing. Of course it was the first time for all of us. So they picked us up from the hotel, dropped us off the front office, have us signed some wavier. Once the paperwork was done, they give us... More

We had a lot of fun driving in the mud, water and bumps. The attraction would have been worth the 3 hrs. trip we made to get there, if only the ATVs did not keep breaking up. Three or four in our group of about 15 had to be repaired or towed. Those delays forced the guide to cut the... More

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

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.

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
