A fun unique way to see Lake Arenal
Jun. 2021
Pedal boarding was a unique, fun and invigorating option for my family of 5 (3 teens) on the beautiful Lake Arenal. Although we couldn't do the entire planned tour because of rain, we had a blast going as far as we could, and then pedaling around the harbor upon our return and swimming after a provided snack. Our tour guides were helpful and friendly, and really bummed they couldn't take us all the way to the planned destination (though as the least fit of our bunch, and tired from lots of hiking the day before, I was secretly absolutely fine with how it all turned out!) If you want to get out on the lake while in the Arenal area, want something different from kayaking and able to go further than paddle boarding, then pedal boarding is a great option - a great exercise too.

Afternoon on the lake
Feb. 2021 • Couples
Roy and Bernie were super pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. We totally enjoyed this tour. The scenery was beautiful, and the pedal boards were simple to learn. Roy answered questions about the history of the lake, volcano, and the local economy.

The pedal boards were really easy to use. Our guide was great to spend the afternoon with and he took fantastic pictures of us. Although it was raining during our tour, My boyfriend and I still couldn't think of a better way to spend an afternoon in the La Fortuna area.

Wonderful afternoon
We had a wonderful time on Lake Arenal under the expert guidance of Mairon. The pedal boards were really easy to master and after no time we were across the lake.

Mairon was a great guide, telling us lots about the area and he took a fantastic selection on photos if us. Our daughter received an ankle injury prior to the tour and Mairon was brilliant in ensuring she was accommodate. I couldn't think of a better way to spend an afternoon whilst staying in the La Fortuna area.

Great activity around Arenal
If you pass by Arenal in Costa Rica this is an activity that definitely worths to be considered. No need to be an athlete to enjoy the lake and the mazing nature with a great view of the Vulcano.
Myron and Bernie, our guides, were exceptional and making us feel safe, comfortable and well educated on history and nature during the full trip.
I would do it again. Thanks

Great water activity in the Arenal lake
Feb. 2020 • Couples
It was a super nice experience! Every time we are close to the lake we try to do some activity, but it was the first time on a pedal board. Everyone who doesn't mind a little bit of effort should try it - the views are incredible, you can dive in the water and enjoy the company of a very friendly guide, (greetings to you, Mayron :)). I totally recommend it!

Great fun, very easy for all
First review I’ve done to date! Would briefly say this is very easy to do even for the unbalanced and unconfident. Great sites, exercise and very friendly guides. I can’t think of a better way to see the lake. Very highly recommend for the cost

Amazing amazing amazing!!!!!
Jun. 2019 • Family
Juan Carlos and Gerardo were our guides and they were amazing!! The service was great , equipment was clean and the 1/2 day perfect. We were picked up at our hotel and Juan Carlos greeted us, and explained the tour in great detail. We arrived at the launch pad where they set up the paddle boards, equipped us with life vests, and explained the paddle boards operation. The paddle boards were pretty easy. I'd say we did about 2 miles in total stopping to swim, have fruits and just relaxing. Most of us flipped off in the water at least once, so if you're taking ur phone, camera or bag, make sure its strapped on and waterproof.

The pedal board is on lake Arenal which was beautiful and a bit overcast which was perfect. At the end we got refreshments to end the morning.

What a wonderful experience we had pedal boarding around Lake Arenal,, The activity was easy when given clear instructions and our guide took fabulous pictures of us with the volcano in the background. This was the highlight of our few days in this area.
