Just come back from Costa Rica and the people at original ATVs were amazing. My boyfriend and I did the tour during a rainy day and it was awesome. We got all muddy and wet. We also got to see spider monkey and put some volcanic mud all over us. It was a great time!

Great fun! Even in the rain. Maybe even better as it wasn’t dusty. If you’re looking for a deal, this is the place. They are the only company I found that offered a 1 hour tour. We called and made a reservation, then drove there in our own car. It was a fun ride on paths around a farm near... More

Yes you rode in an ATV, but all you do is go around a farm/ranch and see their various pastures and then up thru the small Hills on their property. If you have been in the Arenal area for any time you will have seen just about everything you see on this tour. Our guide Alan was knowledgeable about the... More

Allan was our guide and he really made the trip. A couple from a different hotel ran about 25 minutes late so that set the trip off to a bad start, but Allan did everything he could to make up for their tardiness. You will get to drive on a trail thru a farm while your guide points out the... More

Our guide, Norvin, was great! We stopped along the way to learn about the plants & animals, which was really interesting. And bonus - It ended up being a private tour for my husband and me. I've never been on an ATV before, but Norvin was very helpful - running a few practice laps and even got me out of... More

Our family, includes 3 teenagers, everyone loved exploring views of the Arenal Volcano by ATV. Our native guide was well educated in the local plants, animals and folklore. We stopped often to observe the animals in their natural habitat and listen to engaging facts and stories. I would highly recommend this fun excursion.

My husband and six year old son went on this tour and we had a great time. It was fun driving the ATVs and Allen was an excellent tour guide. He made many stops where he told us about the area, wildlife, volcano, insects, birds, etc. We also got to sample the sugar cane and swing on a vine! He... More
