Good food, great drinks, music, dancing. One of the crew sang really well for us! Gorgeous views of the volcano and sunset. Crew took photos of everyone. Fun!

What a great time! Mauricio was a great guide! Learned about the Volcano and other cool facts about the area. Got treated to some authentic Costa Rica food and drinks and saw a Cayman and bunch of different birds.
Amazing views, great customer service!

I booked this tour and had to change the date... their customer service was AMAZING and so helpful. The tour is SO Beautiful and probably in my top things I did on this trip. Marisio was so fantastic!!! He went out of his way to make this a great experience. He has fantastic energy and made great conversation. The views are beautiful and it is a great way to see the lake and volcano.
Fabulous night

Our tour guide Samantha was the sweetest and best person. All the workers were so nice and helpful. I recommend you request for Samantha to be your tour guide.
Arenal Sunset

Nice excursion and glad I did it. They had two bottles of red wine but no white. Boo. The only issue was getting confirmation on my hotel pick up time. Kind of a bummer as I would have spent my time differently with more concrete information. Oh wella-Pura Vida!

Having to cancel because although the site said hotel pick up was included it wasn't. We agreed, mutually, to a cancellation and refund, 5 days later we're still waiting for the refund.

An opportunity to appreciate the true size of Arenal and to see the remains of the previous eruptions. The sunset is pretty amazing too with so many changing colours, with the trip adapted to suit the traveller as well A nice, relaxing evening on the lake
So relaxing and beautiful
