The Top Four Tours in Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

THE TOP FOUR TOURS IN LAKE ARENAL, COSTA RICA

Top Four Tours on Lake Arenal Costa Rica





Lake Arenal in Costa Rica is one of the country’s most scenic points of interest. Green rolling hills of forest and pastureland surround the deep blue lake, with the near-perfect conical symmetry of Arenal Volcano on the eastern horizon. It is the country’s largest lake and plays a very important role producing nearly 12% of Costa Rica’s electric energy with its hydroelectric dam.

Out of all of the things to do in Arenal, Costa Rica, Lake Arenal offers fun and unique
recreational activities, like kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing and boating. All of these Arenal Costa Rica tours are available with Desafio Adventure Company.


Kayaking on Lake Arenal




Exploring Lake Arenal by kayak gives you a completely different perspective of the massive Arenal Volcano and countryside. You’ll paddle  sit-on-top kayaks (double or single) for two hours
around the lake enjoying the tranquility, views and wildlife.

The Lake Arenal Kayaking Tour includes transportation, kayaking equipment, life vests, bilingual guide, snacks and beverages. There are two tours daily, in the morning at 8:00 a.m. and an
afternoon/sunset tour at 1:00 p.m.; each tour lasts four hours.


Sportfishing on Lake Arenal




Lake Arenal is known for its colorful Rainbow Bass, also known as Guapote, a hard-fighting fish that can weigh over 12 pounds and is excellent eating. The relaxing half-day tour is nice out
on the lake with beautiful scenery and calm waters – especially early in the morning.
The Lake Arenal Sportfishing Tour includes bilingual guide, fishing boat and equipment, fresh fruit and beverages. The tour departs at 5:30 a.m. for best fishing conditions, and lasts six hours.


Stand-Up Paddle Boarding on Lake Arenal





Called “SUP” for short, the hot new sport of Stand-Up Paddle Boarding is lots of fun on Lake Arenal. It involves standing up on a large, wide, buoyant board (similar to a surfboard) and using a long paddle to propel you on the water. On the tour, you will go by boat to a calm spot on the
lake where you will start paddle boarding. About halfway through the tour, you will paddle to an island for a break and a well-deserved snack.

Lake Arenal Stand-Up Paddle Boarding Tour includes transport via van and boat, bilingual guide, paddle boarding equipment, and snacks. There are two tours daily, in the morning at 8:00 a.m.
and an afternoon/sunset tour at 1:00 p.m.; each tour lasts four hours.


Moonshine Boating Tour on Lake Arenal



Desafio Adventure Company’s original tour takes you on a relaxing afternoon-sunset boat cruise on Lake Arenal – ideal for bird-watching and great photo opportunities of Arenal Volcano. “Moonshine” made from local nance fruit will be served with cheese and plantain chips.

The Lake Arenal Moonshine Tour includes transportation, bilingual guide, snacks and beverages. The tour departs at 3:30 p.m. and lasts three hours.
