Monteverde to Arenal: Express Boat Transfer


  • Looking at the amazing views of the Arenal Volcano from the Desafio boat.

FROM: $ 32


The Monteverde Express Boat Transfer on Lake Arenal is the highest-quality transfer service available on Lake Arenal. Take the most-efficient and most-personalized means of travel between the Arenal Volcano and the cloud forests of Monteverde -- this is one of the best ways to travel in Costa Rica! Take advantage of the scenic route on this Costa Rica transfer!

This transfer service starts with one of our friendly drivers stopping by your Monteverde hotel to pick you up. He then helps you load up your luggage as you take your seat in our comfortable, air-conditioned van.

Your driver will then unload your luggage and assist you as you walk down a rather steep, cement ramp to get to the large, pontoon-style, comfortable boat on Lake Arenal. Your boat is roof-covered and safe and equipped with life-jackets and a knowledgeable, friendly Lake Arenal boat captain.

Your Lake Arenal boat captain will then start up the motor and you'll have a nice, leisurely boat ride along the smooth, calm and very picturesque Lake Arenal with great views of the Arenal Volcano. You'll also have amazing bird watching opportunities along the way as you pass by isolated, remote Lake Arenal islands filled with herons, cormorants, anhingas -- you might even be able to spot an elusive river otter or coaties along the way.

Once you get to the other side of Lake Arenal, there will be another van waiting for you for this stretch of the Costa Rica transportation. Your boat captain show you to your van. Please be sure to grab all your luggage and make your way to the correct van for your journey to La Fortuna. Your driver will drop you off at your hotel so you can relax and get ready for your vacation ahead in Costa Rica's adventure capital.

The Monteverde - Arenal Express boat transfer is a more-private service and operates in either direction. You get great views of the Arenal Volcano and the unspoiled Lake Arenal engulfed by lush rainforest.

And be sure to let us know if you need help with making reservations at any of our beautiful Monteverde hotels .And once you leave Monteverde, be sure to sign up for our Adventure Connection Transfer + Tour to your choice of Guanacaste beach location and do rafting or a safari float along the way or try our daily shuttles to Manuel Antonio Costa Rica.
