Overview

We are Aventuras Arenal, a Costa Rican family company focused on giving our traveling friends a supreme “Pura Vida” experience at the Arenal Volcano Area. We’ve being creating our clients lots of great memories through our tours for the past 27 years. It seems like yesterday when the founders started offering boat rides at Lake Arenal. Time certainly flies by when you’re hiking, kayaking, fishing, boating, canoeing, floating in safaris, relaxing at the hot springs, exploring caves... well, and so much more. This year, we take a look back in time and remember the thousands of friends we’ve made along the way, those we gave our warmest welcome and who we shared with the very best of Costa Rica in a vacation experience. We wish to help this country stay in your heart forever… Join us to live an adventure backed by 27 years of doing things with excellence!
