“kayak tour”(3 reviews)
A relaxing time on Lake Arenal enjoying the wildlife, the fauna, and a swim in the warm lake waters. Tours are guided and last about 2-hours. Our kayaks are sit-on-top and very easy to manage. We have single and double kayaks.
Suggested duration: 2-3 hours

Looking for something other than walking, we are very happy with Beth and Jeff's service. Our two senior young couples were able to discover the fauna of the shores of the lake with pleasure, without forcing. It was a pleasant walk perfectly mastered by Beth....More
