Had a really fun time riding ATV's just minutes from Arenal. Our guide was Andres and he was great. They've designed a great course that takes you through lots of muddy roads, across streams, and up and down rocky hills. The kids were disappointed we didn't go faster but the speed was fine by me since this was our first time ever driving one. Great views of both the volcano and lake. Was definitely fun for the whole family.

My husband and I did an ATV tour in the rain and it was amazing! Andres took us through the forest on an unintentional private tour. The course was incredibly fun, and he shared a lot about the area and how it has changed over the years. Halfway through the tour, we hiked into the rainforest, trekked across the river, and experienced the true Arenal clay.

I found these folks online after doing some heavy research, so I thought. Unfortunately the experience was not up to par with what they charge. The gentleman that accompanied us was very frustrated, upset, and forgetful. From the beginning he had very little patience and scolded our party and other party quite frequently for things out of our control. Initially we wanted to know if we had space to put our items on the ATV in case it rained. He suggested the lockers, and after the ride and rain, apologized for misunderstanding us. So we all got soaked in water while he took his sweet time putting on his poncho. As mentioned earlier, I guess he expected us to know what to do, because everytime someone got stuck somewhere he resorted to "you should have followed my exact trail" but he never collectively told the entire group, so it kept happening and he kept getting upset. Also, the 8th person in line cannot possibly see his exact route. Furthermore, it was a very basic ride. We drove, no narrating, no tour nothing. Just rode. For $100, I could have done this for myself and my partner in a much better setting w a much more pleasant host. I would wait to book once you've arrived to Arenal as they have ATV services everywhere.

Hi There We want to thank you for your opinion, it is very valuable to us to help us improve the service we provide; We are deeply sorry that you felt that way. Our team works very hard to give the best of ourselves and provide a nice experience on their trip. The type of tour that we offer is a tour designed for the safety of all our clients, we cannot expect that all of them are expert aTV drivers, and therefore we have a demarcated route designed for the whole family, from children, to older adults, and The best of all is that the tour takes place in one of the best places in La Fortuna, with incredible views, surrounded by nature and, right in front of the Arenal volcano.

We had a great experience on the ATV tour. When we started out my 3-year-old daughter was scared and wanted to turn around. Our tour good, who only spoke Spanish, on our request took my daughter with him and went very slow. She ended up loving it and wanted to go back. Great experience and awesome tour guides.
