A blast with beautiful views!

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.
Great ATV in Arenal

Viator Fail. Great tour of Arenal jungle
, 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.

A fun activity!

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.

Best experience ever !
, 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!

Beautiful views, lots of adventure!

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.

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 experience!!!

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.
Short review

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.
