Alfonso is the man !!! Boy what an experience this tour turned out. As a family of four we fancied the tour albeit having never sat on a quad bike. After a briefing we were off .... Well the rest of the party were leaving us novices struggling to keep upright! We were taken on a training field which I... More

We took this tour with the anticipation that we would actually ride an ATV into the jungle near Arenal Volcano. We were briefed on the use of the ATV, given some safety pointers and away we went. The first part was a "practice run" where you got used to the ATV and how it handled and then we went down... More

We decided to go on an ATV tour while in La Fortuna. It ended up being a great experience. Our tour guide Keilor "El Guapo" made the experience! Everything was top notch. They had Go Pro attachments on the helmets so you could use your action camera to get great footage. First they take you to a field where there... More

The tour guides assess who can ride well and then will split the group up accordingly. I think the people that find it boring are less skilled riders. My two sons and myself are pretty advanced riders. We had another 3 people that were in the same skill set and we broke off from the group with guide "El Guapo"... More

Certainly something we didn't think we would be doing when visiting the area but had to give it a go as highly recommended by our hotel owners. Great experience.

This was one of our trip highlights. We weren't sure how our kids would do, but they hung on and had fun too. They take you out for some practice experience in a field nearby, then start you on a long trek through more fields and a neighborhood and then into some countryside and to a river we would have...

I really enjoyed this tour setup by Eric Zelaya of Volcano Lake Adventures. First they taught us how to operate the machines, then set us free on trails to make sure we knew how to run them before doing more adventurous things. We ending up going down trails on wooden single lane bridges over rivers and it was amazing. We... More

I have never been on an ATV before and they teach you everything on the spot. Enjoyed getting to know the vehicle a little in the cow farm, but my favorite was gunning in down the dirt road to the river. We went over 40 kph. ATV's where in great condition and excursion even included dinner at the restaurant. Get... More

El Guapo took us on a fun and enticing tour with breath-taking views. The practice field was as fun for the kids as the tour itself. We ended at the river, and the kids swam a little. Our guides were funny and fun. What a great tour. We did this tour as a combo tour with Wave Expeditions and did... More
