We booked ATVing through our travel agent who booked us with Arenas Adventures. We were a bit nervous at first as you start out on the busy streets of Tamarindo. But we were given great instructions and a practice run before we took off for the hills. Our guide was Luis and he was great. We went to many parts... More

We booked surfing lessons for our daughters and the estuary kayaking tour for myself - both experiences were very good. They worked with us to schedule follow up semi-private surf lessons even though they were quite busy during this holiday season. The estuary tour was very relaxing but not overly taxing. Unfortunately, we only saw a variety of birds… No... More

We did an ATV trip (with William) on one day and two separate boat trips (with Bismark and Jose) through this company. The guides were great, know a lot about the area and very friendly. Highly recommend!! We loved it!

I went to return a never-used rash guard for my daughter. The clerk was extremely rude because I wanted a return versus and exchange. At one point, the manager became involved and she referred to me as a "Gringo." For a country that is so dependent on US tourism, it was offensive. Spend your hard earned money at another surf...

We booked a kayaking tour of the nearby estuary through our hotel. We do quite a bit of kayaking in florida so this experience didn't really compare. We were picked up on an ATV towing two kayaks and told to sit on the back of the ATV (I didn't feel very safe). Our tour guide was very nice and good... More

We had such a great experience with Arenas Adventures. We wanted to go on a challenging ATV ride in the Jungle. William took us on a two hour ride through the jungle that was unforgettable. We really enjoyed and appreciated him. He delivered by taking us on a challenging route that was exactly what we were hoping for. The lookout... More

Surfing has always been on my bucket list, so when we were in Tamarindo OF COURSE we wanted to give it a try. Our teacher, "Fish" (Randall), picked us up at our hotel on an ATV and zipped us to the office. In just minutes they had us back on the ATV, this time with a trailer and surfboards attached....

We took a half day snorkeling private trip at Playa Famingo with Luis and Ivan, booked through Arenas Adventures. We had the most amazing time. Luis was our guide and Ivan drove the boat. They were so professional and really went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly and that we enjoyed the trip. They took us... More

My boyfriend and I rented a scooter for 24h for 40 USD. We spent the best days of our trip visiting the beaches nearby. The staff was polite and really nice. We absolutely loved our experience.

We spent the last day of a 9 day vacation on a 4 hour snorkel tour that turned into so much more! A truly positive experience - Pura Vida!!! The previous day my family went on a private fishing trip that was awful - not only did we lose close to $800, but the disappointment was overwhelming. Bismark (the guide)... More
