This was my favorite tour in Costa Rica! My husband and I just got back today in the states. My best memories are kayaking with JJ. He is so passionate about Costa Rica. He made the tour absolutely perfect. He found monkeys for us as well. He tried and succeeded at making the howler monkeys howl. All three of us were rolling with laughter. I give the tour an A++++. You will love it and love JJ!!!!

Mu husband and I took the ATV Sunset Tour last week with Manreque. It was soooooo much fun! I personally had never even been on an ATV before and Manreque was so patient while teaching me to drive and encouraging me the entire time. We went to 3 look-out points and saw beautiful views of the city and sunset. It was just my husband and I on the tour which was actually very nice. I definitely recommend Arenas Adventures!

Very professional guides. Had some good laughs with them. Hoped for a bit more education on the area. Zip line was fun.

We booked surfing lessons through the concierge at Reserva Conchal where we were staying and had a blast! When we got to the shop, we were greeted by our instructor, JJ and met another couple who took lessons with us. They provided us with shirts to wear to protect from the sun and also from the rough surface of the surfboard. We walked over to a nice quiet area of the beach where we would get the most out of the waves without much beach traffic and JJ walked us through the important safety tips and basic steps to surfing. Then it was party time! JJ rocked it. He watched us each very closely and pointed out what went wrong so we could correct our form. His instruction was perfect and before I knew it I was mastering the waves like a pro - sort of!

Thanks JJ for a great time surfing!

We booked this ATV tour on a whim on our last day in Costa Rica and it was probably my husband's favorite tour. They picked us up from the hotel right on time. I wish I could remember our guides name because he was awesome! I was a little hesitant at the beginning of the tour because some of the trails in the forest are a little rough, but he kept a great pace and made recommendations on how to handle some of the trickier trails until I was comfortable. The guide was also great about stopping to point out wildlife that he thought we would be interested in. We rode to a cliff that had breathtaking views of all of Tamarindo. We came back to the base dirty, muddy and absolutely exhilarated. I wished we could have stayed another day because we would have done the tour again the next day with no hesitation!!
