    We did several tours with Arenal Adventures during our stay in Arenal, including the hanging bridges, cano negro and the 1968 reserve. We also had guided transfers with them. We cannot recommend Arenal Adventures highly enough. All the tour guides were highly knowledgeable and very friendly. The pick ups were prompt and we were always offered snacks and drinks en route. We learnt loads and really enjoyed all our excursions.

    The trip from Arenal takes about 1hr 45 minutes passing by large fruit ranches, sugar cane fields and small villages. Our guide Roy and driver Andreas were fantastic, think they must have superman vision! They managed to spot some sloths in the trees while we were driving along. The sloths are brown bundles and to the untrained eye just look like a growth in the trunk of the tree. A quick stop at a bridge gave us the opportunity to see iguana 🦎 up close just in the trees by the bridge. A pit stop for coffee and toilets at Los Chilles before getting on the boat was a welcome chance to stretch your legs. At the boatyard we met our captain Henry, who if possible had even more supersonic eyes spotting birds and monkeys from one side of the river to the other while navigating and steering the boat. In the two and a half hour trip we managed to see many different birds including kingfishers, egrets a Great Pottoo which was virtually invisible roosting in the tree to all but eagle eyed Henry! We saw small bats sleeping on a tree. Spider monkeys, very aggressive howler monkeys and finally white faced capuchins. Our only disappointment was no toucans …. never fear these were spotted (2 different varieties) on the drive home. Our boat trip ended with a typical Costa Rican meal which was delicious. For anyone who had not managed to get shots of all the birds and monkeys Roy very generously shared his photos which he had uploaded. All in a great experience made better by our guides, driver and captain. Thank you

    We really liked this tour. Our guide Gustavo and driver sandro were very professional and friendly. We saw lots of wild life. THe only suggestion i have is that the company would make available some binoculars for people to rent: i for sure would pay for the convenience. It will bring extra money for the company as well. Distribute them at the beginning of the tour and collect at the end.
