We saw incredible views during our tour, and they even took us to a spring that had real volcanic mud. They let us do facials and even put some in a bottle for us to take home! We got close to horses during the tour and were able to stop and take pictures. would do again!

Highly recommend this tour! Our guides name was William. Roughly about an hour on the atv maybe a little more. Our views of the volcano were spectacular! The tour is around a private farm with horses, cows and gorgeous views everywhere! Water was supplied on the tour :) bottled water at that lol

Email confirmation beforehand and picked us up at the hotel. There were just four people in the group which made it nice. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable which made the 2-hour excursion very enjoyable!!

My husband and I arrived a couple hours before the next ATV excursion but they offered to take us out then. It was perfect. Our guide, Alan, was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. It was awesome to see how genuinely excited he was when we saw a couple of birds that are rarely seen. He stopped many times to show... More

Family of 5 had a 2 hour horseback excursion with the same company. The horses appeared to be well cared for, staff were polite and knowledgeable, excursion afforded "occasional" views of Volcano Arenal, not much for wildlife viewing. I would consider the horseback riding part of the excursion fair but not the scenery or setting.

Our family made reservations for 8 am and when we arrived everything was ready to go! Our guide, Allan, was so very personable and safety conscious. He obviously took pride in the beautiful surroundings and stopped along the way to share his knowledge with us. We had a great time and would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to see... More

4 partially-thawed adults from Calgary had a fantastic mid-day ATV tour, thanks to William! Very good ATVs, good training (although we had previous ATV experience) and an enjoyable tour west of Arenal Volcano through the pasture (horses and cows), through the rainforest (saw coati and an owl), slapped on some volcanic mud at the river then back to home base....

We decided at the last minute to fit in the 2 hr ATV Tour with Alan. 2 parents, 2 college age kids. We had a blast! None of us had ever done it before. We were with others who had, and we all had a great time. Highly recommend. Alan made it so fun, and informative!

Thanks to William for a great day. We hired William to take us on a private tour of the Arenal suspension bridges, Arenal Waterfall and for a hike around the base of the volcano. He was accommodating and even gave our 5 year old shoulder rides when he got tired. It was one of our best days here in Costa... More
