The moderate ride is about 1.5 to 2-hours long or about 13 kilometers. From Arenal, we’ll start at the Lake Arenal Dam where you drop off your luggage with our boat driver. From there we ride to the rural community of El Castillo.

You can explore Costa Rica’s diverse natural environment with chances to see wildlife. We’ve seen monkeys, birds, coatimundis, and even sloths and toucans!

EAcross Lake Arenal

Upon arrival to El Castillo, you will be reunited with your luggage and our boat driver will bring you across lake Arenal to Rio Chiquito. From there our driver will drive you in his mini-van the remaining 1.5-hours up the steep, gravel roads to your hotel in Monteverde.

This is a truly adventurous ride – the terrain is rugged, the scenery is incredible but this is the perfect way to travel between La Fortuna and the small community of Monteverde.
