Take advantage of your time on your way to Monteverde doing one of the newest, most unique, and fun sports around the world: stand-up paddle boarding. You can prepare to paddle across the biggest lake in Costa Rica, Lake Arenal.


  • Experience Lake Arenal, from one side to the other
  • Take in panoramic views of the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal
  • Explore Lake Arenal and its beautiful bays


Your journey starts by traveling from the epic center of La Fortuna with a comfortable transfer accompanied by a friendly driver and knowledgeable guide. Start your unforgettable voyage as you embark on a private boat loaded up with all the necessary gear. You'll meet your amiable captain who will be encouraging you throughout the activity and taking care of your suitcases while your experienced guide teaches you how to stand on the board and provides you with safety instructions. Once you're ready to give it a try your guide will plunk your board into the water and you can start by paddling out on your knees before standing up and finding your balance. You’ll be paddling across the never-to-be-forgotten Lake Arenal and its beautiful bays. The calm water of Lake Arenal is perfect for a smooth and easy experience, allowing you to enjoy the unique scenery. Lake Arenal will offer all of its participants the opportunity to paddle while enjoying an incredible view of the volcano. This is a great activity for people who just want to be out on a freshwater lake while engaging with a new adventure. Your outgoing guide will challenge you with races, games, and even yoga poses, all at the base of the grand Areal Volcano. Later, make a short stop at a fascinating viewpoint which will leave you breathless. You'll paddle for 2.5 hours throughout this stunning adventure, and will later finish your paddling right in front of the adventure store in the small town of El Foforos. There you will have the chance to change into your dry clothes and to fuel up with a refreshing and well-deserved snack. Following that, jump back on board to finish crossing the lake to Rio Chiquito where your reliable and safe vehicle will be waiting for you to take you directly to Monteverde so you can fully relax and enjoy the ride.
