My boyfriend and I still talk about how much we enjoyed the ATVs. We got to see tons of animals and great views of Arenal, but in an adrenaline filled way. You can go as fast or as slow as you like and the tour guide was really good about explaining everything. It was worth the money because we were... More

We did the tour up the volcano. Most of the path was narrow and winding with some puddles which made it lots of fun to splash through! The guides were helpful and informative - one leading the group and one following. At one point we parked and walked up a bit, admired the view and learned some history. I definitely... More

The tour guide and all members of the tour were kind, helpful and provided great service. I would recommend this tour for anyone looking to spice up their trip with a little adventure to see sights, animals and get a little muddy.

What's not to like about touring a volcano with all the twists, turns and steep hills in the mud on an atv? We had a blast!

Really good fun riding around on the atv, however we believe it could have been more! There were only 3 of us in our group and we were 2 first timers. You do a couple of practise laps and then you're off. Trails had some big puddles which was fun going fast through them...wish we had gone on a rainy... More

It was a great time! Our guide - think his name was Jason - was very friendly and great all around. He pointed out even the smallest of amazing cool things. Great time and would go again!!

We booked this tour through our hotel at the last minute. They picked us up on time and drove us to a private farm. We were fitted with our helmets and gave us a safety briefing. The tour was very safe as there are two sometimes three guides with you at all times. There were many areas where you go... More

Promptly picked up at the hotel and transported to the adventure location. We were clearly briefed on safety procedures and fitted for our helmets. Once on the ATV, our guide ensured the operations of the vehicle was understood and had us familiarize ourselves with the controls. He took us on a brief trial run around the starting point and once... More

Not a bad ride but definitely overpriced and no meal provided as with other tours. I thought we would go more in the forest but mostly private farm.
