Costa Rica-- Arenal ATVing

Paul and I in front of our room waiting for the others to go ATVing in Arenal.
Our driver was there early.  We loaded up for the 1 hour drive to Arenal.

We went to La Pradera for our ATV excursion.  We really didn't know what to expect.  After some instruction time we went across the street to practice on the course to make sure we all got the hang of driving our ATV.

After the tour guides were confident in our abilities we took off for some fast and wild fun!

It was really nice how they let us switch drivers with our younger kids.

After riding through the jungle for an hour we were told to head back to the hotel but instead of going back to the hotel we took a right and got to drive down the street for a 1/2 mile.  It was so much fun!  Then we took a quick left and rode through a village until we ended up at this river.
We stopped for a 1/2 hour.
Rather than just rest and drink our bottled water, we decided to have some fun!

The water was so refreshing.
And the kids had a blast jumping off the side of the mountain.

We had just as much fun riding back to the hotel-- they allowed us to pretty much 
go as fast as we wanted.

Once we got back to the hotel, we changed into some clean clothes and had dinner in the restaurant.
The meal was included in the tour and was a nice way to end the day.
After we ate, we visited the gift shop.
The boys played foosball.
We got back to our hotel around 7pm.  Some of us went back to the hot springs, while the rest of us showered and called it a night.
