I am quite surprised that this company, Aventuras El Lago, has so few reviews. We were in the La Fortuna/Arenal in March of 2016 and took the taxi-boat-taxi to Monteverde. We were lucky that day that the Arenal Volcano was clear in view. The company picked us up at the hotel in La Fortuna, then dropped us off at the dam at Lake Arenal. On the shuttle ride to the dam, we got to see the side of Arenal Volcano that we didn't see from the town of La Fortuna. Then from the boat, the view was even more fantastic with the lake and the backside (where you can see the old lava flows) of the volcano in view. More...howiewu
We were picked up promptly from our hotel in Monteverde in a comfortable vehicle. After a bumpy ride where our guide pointed out hawks and wind turbines, we reached the lake. A slight wait for the boat, then we boarded for the trip across the lake. (Be prepared to carry your bag down a small hill to the boat.) The boat trip was very relaxing and it was great to gradually get to view the volcano. The bus was waiting for us at the other side for a prompt and comfy trip to our La Fortuna hotel. This mode of travel is much better than spending the whole time on the roads.jana7227
