Great surfing lessons, especially with kids.

Wonderful, patient and enthusiastic job by the crew at Arenas. Our family of four all got up, including boys 11 and 13. Definitely recommend.

Took two adventures with this group. First met Louis at the ramp at Flamingo. Went snorkeling clean boat, and he showed us all the ropes in and out along the way. We were so happy we booked an atv tour the next day. Even requested Louis again. Of course Randall complied with our needs. Great trip again. Monkeys etc. great... More

Luis was such a fantastic guide! This tour was a rugged (for us novices) ATV adventure on wooded trails with the most scenic view of the Costa Rican coast. We all came out of the experience feeling exhilarated and proud of our accomplishments on the trails. Luis helped us through the difficult parts of the trail and encouraged us to... More

We did the ATV trip to Conchal beach for snorkelling, rough terrain but we saw so much cool stuff on the way our guide was patient and courteous, the views were stunning. We were so impressed with the guys we went back two days later to hire kayaks to get out to the little island just off the beach, it... More

We had a wonderful experience with Bismarck, our guide, on our ATV trip. He was friendly, careful and bi-lingual. The tour was one of the highlights of our week in Costa Rica. Definitely would recommend!!!

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
