There are so many amazing locations around the world where you can try your hand at watersports and enjoy excellent conditions out on the water. So, why should you book your watersports vacation with Volcano Watersports?

It’s a good question, for sure. After all, Costa Rica is likely a long way away. To get here, you’ll need to book a flight, book accommodation, book time off work, pack your luggage, and so on. So what exactly is waiting for you here when you do? How do you know our boat rentals are going to be different from all the others?

Well, there are 3 key reasons.

Number One: This is Costa Rica

For starters, if you’re booking with us here at Volcano Watersports, that means you’re travelling to Costa Rica. This is one of the most amazing vacation destinations ever. Complete with dazzling rainforests, gushing waterfalls, sparkling beaches, and an electrifying culture, Costa Rica has quickly become the envy of countries around the globe.

It wasn’t always this way, of course. Toward the end of the 1940s, as much as 80% of Costa Rica’s rainforests had disappeared. Due to deforestation, around 20,000 acres of land were being destroyed annually, and by the 1990s, it had one of the worst deforestation rates in Central America. Today, however, Costa Rica is one of the greenest and most sustainable countries in the world.

Thanks to the government-led initiative, Costa Rica has reforested much of its landscape, leading to 51% of the country being covered in rainforest, 24% of which is primary forest. There’s no denying that this country is now a sustainable paradise, emphasising the power of the natural world and the good that can come from preserving it. This is what you’ll experience when you get here – a look into the world exactly as it should be.

Number Two: This is Lake Arenal

As well as this, when you get to Lake Arenal, you’ll quickly realise you’ve entered watersports heaven. Currently the largest lake in Costa Rica, Lake Arenal covers 85-square-kilometres, having tripled its size with the construction of the Arenal dam back in 1979.

Next to this lake is a vast, lush rainforest, filled with wonderful plant life and fascinating Costa Rican creatures. Birds like chestnut-mandibled toucans sing from the undergrowth, while mischievous spider monkeys swing from branch to branch. In the distance, the magnificent Arenal Volcano looms large into the sky, casting an almost mythical shadow over the surrounding landscape.

The water itself is sapphire blue and calm as a millpond. Because of its size, it’s impossible to feel inhibited when you’re on the wake. It feels like the entire world is yours, and you could keep cruising forever and ever, with all the time in the world to hone your skills and become a master. In other, more simplified words, Lake Arenal hits differently, and you’ll soon understand that when you get out here.

Our boat creates tailored waves to suit your experience level, style – and how much of a challenge you want – which pairs perfectly with Lake Arenal’s conditions.

Number Three: This is Your Way

At Volcano Watersports, we're all about giving you the best experience possible, with top-quality watersport equipment, enthusiastic and experienced instructors, and the freedom to shape the experience into whatever you want it to be.

Do you want to go waterskiing for a few hours? Sure thing. Do you want to go tubing with the kids and feel the wind cascading through your hair? Done. Do you want to go wakeboarding for an hour or two, and then have a luxurious dinner with music and sunset views? All in a day’s work. The best thing about Volcano Watersports is that we do things your way. Whatever that looks like.

From beginners to experienced pros, our philosophy is always the same: get a good wake going, prep our guests with the best equipment out there, and give that little nudge that sends you just far enough out of your comfort zone to have fun, and to leave with some incredible memories that stay with you for the rest of your lives.

That’s what makes Volcano Watersports so special. The most amazing memory is waiting for you here at Lake Arenal, and we’re just happy to be a part of it.
