If you want to a real ATV tour with mud and getting wet then this is the tour for you, its adventurous enough for all ages. Other ATV tours say they are off road but they mean off of the paved road.

We then traverse various terrains, cross rivers, thru wild grass, woods, beautiful vistas of the valley below, and breathtaking views of the Arenal Volcano. We often encounter various wildlife such as sloths, toucans, monkeys, bats, poison dart frogs and leaf cutter ants, among others. After the finca, we will visit the Arenal River where you may bath in the crystal clear water or just relax for a few minutes. We return to our office where we will enjoy a meal of typical Costa Rican cusine. This tour is approx 20 kms or 12.5 miles and lasts 2-2 1/2 hoursIf this adventure is not for you or you would like a shorter tour we have a variety of tours available to suit the desires of anyone such as rio tours, cataratas tours and vista tours.
