Arenal Kayaks

Guided Tours on Lake Arenal

The kayak: a human powered watercraft transporting the paddler to a unique adventure on beautiful Lake Arenal. Leaving nothing but ripples to mark your passage, you'll experience views of Lake Arenal and Arenal Volcano only accessible by kayak.

Located at the base of Arenal Volcano in northwestern Costa Rica stretching 25miles towards Tenorio Volcano, Lake Arenal provides recreation, hydroelectricity, and irrigation.

Arenal Kayaks, a family owned touring company, is your opportunity to enjoy Lake Arenal and kayaking in Costa Rica from the comfort of a personal watercraft. No gas required! Paddle leisurely along the shoreline enjoying the scenery, drop a fishing line in, or put some effort into it for a good workout. You are encouraged to enjoy this beautiful lake in your own way.

  • See howler monkeys along the shore
  • Observe over 400 species of birds
  • Catch one of 10 species of fish
  • Explore coves, lagoons, and river outlets
  • View the volcanos in the distance
