The views were amazing! Weather was perfect for Mid May. We ended up seeing two different types of monkeys, which is a rare site! It didn’t take us to the base of the volcano, but we had great views nonetheless. There wasn’t a fruit break either, but water was provided. Our tour guides, Byron and Esteban, were informative and friendly and chose the right horses for our needs. Overall, amazing experience and I recommend for first time visitors!

Really fun time! I haven’t been on a horse in a very long time but the guide was very patient and we had fun and saw some amazing views of the volcano and the area around Arenal.

My husband and I had a great experience!!

The hanging bridge tour was a great experience. Our tour guide, Hansel, was very knowledgeable, affable, and simply put, a very good tour guide. The rainforest was amazing!!!
