Description

Arenal Lake Crossing La Fortuna to Monteverde

 

Arenal Lake crossing, half tour – half transfer is an scenic, fast and the newest way to go or come from La Fortuna (Arenal Volcano area) to the Monteverde area.

 

Around 7:30 a.m. we start picking everybody from the hotels in La Fortuna for a 30 minutes drive to the Arenal Lake Dam.

 

There we will aboard into a very comfortable and safe pontoon boat for a 30 to 40 minutes (aprox.) ride to Río Chiquito, a little town at the other side of the lake.

 

Arenal Lake is the largest and the most important lake in Costa Rica, it was man made in 1974 to provide hydroelectric energy for the country. It is also a place where you can find different kinds of resident and migratory birds. Sometimes mammals can be seen in the surroundings, also great views of the Arenal Volcano when it’s clear.

 

Once at Río Chiquito, we’ll leave the boat and make a short break to strength the legs, after, another 1 hour thirty minutes microbus ride to get to the hotels in the Monteverde area, sometimes during the rainy season this transfer could take longer.

    I had a safari tour & hanging bridges tour with Arenal Adventures and they were also my transport from Arenal to Monteverde. The staff were excellent, very friendly, spoke good English, very knowledgeable and had a good eye – spotted so many different species of animals that we wouldn’t of even known were there.

    This was our only time with Aventuras Arenal, for a transfer from La Fortuna to Monteverde via Lake Arenal.
    THIS WAS OUR WORST EXPERIENCE DURING OUR 2 WEEKS IN COSTA RICA AND WE WOULD NEVER USE THEM AGAIN!!
    We were told we would have a break after crossing the lake, which did not happen. Then the driver stopped JUST OUTSIDE MONTEVERDE for a “10 minute bathroom” break. Fine, so in 10 minutes we (8 of us) were all at the vehicle, but NO DRIVER. He was in the restaurant having a smoothie….then he had a full plate of lunch…..then a coffee. All the while we thought he was done, and he still wasn’t! 50 minutes later, he as ready to go. 20 minutes after that, we were dropped at our hotel.
    TERRIBLE SERVICE!!!
