Best experience, best guide and fun ride. Will do again & let all my friends know about this ATV Tour!!!!!
A blast with beautiful views!
Franco_O, Nov 2021
So much fun! Andres is friendly, informative and a great guide. It's a great ride/trails. The face mask is an added perk. The views are absolutely breath taking.

OMG so much fun. We went through the forest and saw monkeys and birds. Then the instructor took us to a river where volcanic ash was and we did face masks! It was amazing. Do this! You won’t regret it!

Great your and Andres was an awesome guide! It rained a little but was still a lot of fun. Recommended to go before it gets too hot in the afternoon
Ernesto_M, May 2022
Really good experience, my girl drove an atv for the first time and made it to every step of the tour, thanks to the amazing staff and equipment that they had. I was %100 satisfied with the activity, I’ll recommend it to all my friends. Andres is an exceptional tour guide.

Short review
Shari_K, Jul 2019
The ATV was fun, guides were great! However, we followed the guide the whole time and stopped often to make sure everyone was behind us, thus we were limited to how fast we were going. We went pretty slow. I was also disappointed because it advertised free natural mud mask, but we didn't get to do that when we went.
Awesome ATV Tour
Suzanne_S, Apr 2022
This was our first tour in La Fortuna and it was a great introduction to the Volcano and the juggle area - we even saw a sloth in the trees! Andres was super knowledgeable and helpful during the tour. The best part was definitely the volcano clay mask we did by the river. It was such a nice break in the tour considering it was around 2 hours. I’d advise you do the evening tour because then you get the sunset as well.
The most memorable part...

The most memorable part of the tour was taking pictures of the volcano,seeing the monkey and the sloth

Viator Fail. Great tour of Arenal jungle
Joseph_A, Sep 2021
The guide did a great job and the ATV experience was awesome.. This is mostly criticism of Viator. We identified hotel pickup and got emails from viator that indicated pickup between 1 hour and 30 mins before the tour, INCLUDED.. No drivers showed up so we jumped in our car and drove to the tour destination. Viator has a chat service and they don’t respond. We then learned that people who drove direct booked directly to the operator at the entrance to Arenal Volcano National Park. Tour operator has no pickup so must be a 3rd party ball drop. Others paid 1/2 what we paid. The Adventure guys are right there at the entrance to the park. Go direct and pay 60 bucks.
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you for your comment Joseph, we are very happy to know that you enjoyed our activity, we work hard so that our clients have an incredible experience. We are very sorry for the problem you had with the platform, we are working with Viator to solve the problem and prevent it from happening again in the future. All our activities include pick up and drop off at the hotels at no additional cost. Again, we appreciate your comment, it helps us improve our service to be better every day

Best experience ever !
Jenna_K, Jun 2021
We had a group of 4 and Andres was super polite, patient, and knowledgeable so we can have a good time. The ride was adventurous and fun and we would have not survived unless Andres was supervising us. He is a great employee and he is also a good person. We would love to ride again with andres! ¡Pura vida!

Good excursion terrible staff
Cyana_R, Jun 2022
If you want to ride atvs for a long time and get views of the volcano then this will do the job. The staff was really rude and impatient though, which actually led to a few safety issues on our route. At one point they left my group unattended for 30 min in the forest to go retrieve someone who got scared and stopped driving. No staff stayed with us. We made the best of it but be prepared .
Great experience!!!
Nikeala_P, Nov 2019
Our tour instructor was amazing he was patient and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed ourselves on this activity. I rode ATV's before but it was my brothers first time and he said he really enjoyed himself.

Beautiful views, lots of adventure!
Matt_A, May 2021
Jorge and Andres were excellent guides for our ride! We ended up being the only 2 guests on the tour and got lots of time to take pictures at the lookouts that they stopped at. It was very muddy from the prior day’s rain, so our shoes got a bit muddy from riding over the little water ponds. Go with shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. We would definitely do this again and are very happy we booked! Definitely do the mud facial, your face becomes incredibly soft afterwards.
Monsoon Adventure
Yesenia_F, Aug 2022
We drove in a monsoon and it was so fun. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. Great view of the volcano.
Beautiful Arenal
meaghan_d, May 2022
Great experience! Andres was very knowledgeable and kept the tour at a good pace. Views of the park and lake Arenal are gorgeous.
A fun activity!
Kathy_B, Jul 2021
Very friendly. Fun trails with a variation in terrain which made it fun. It was not just flat fields, there were climbs, mud, and water. We're so glad we did this.
