    Lake Arenal
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    The La Fortuna area has amazing natural environment, but one of the highlights is our picturesque Lake Arenal right at the base of the Arenal Volcano. This second-largest lake in Central America is located a short drive from the Center of La Fortuna. Once you arrive to the lake, you will be escorted to our motorized boat where you will either choose your Stand Up Paddle Board or kayak. Your bilingual, professional nature guide will be there to assist you, provide paddling instructions and then share with you our favorite quiet coves and perfect photo op locations. One of the best ways to experience nature in La Fortuna and get a whole different perspective of the Arenal Volcano.

    We did the stand up paddling and it was one of our favorite excursions from our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. We went on a Sunday afternoon and were the only two on the tour and there were not many people out on the lake. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Our guide was funny and

    Did the 1/2 day SUP lessons on Lake Arenal ith Desafio in December 2018. It was off-season and kind of a cool blustery day, so we were the only ones on the tour plus the instructor and boat driver. It was a great way to learn! Instructor was very patient, got me up on the board

    After a few rainy days we booked on the sup adventure. The trip itself is on the aranal lake which affords fantastic lake views. We were the only family on the trip so ended up with a private trip. Really easy to do and great fun.
