Amazing adventure

Anthony, our tour guide, was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and kind and fun! He was also very patient with me as I struggled on the way up from the waterfall. This portion of the day is very strenuous, but worth it! It was an amazing adventure and my husband and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see and learn about the beautiful Costa Rica land and people.

I don't know what I was thinking booking this trip but yikes! I booked it and moved on to the next thing and didn't research it like I should've. That came back to bite me. I'm not an outdoors person at all, but I do workout, but HOLY MOLY. I was not ready for the amount of physical activity with this tour! We hiked 500 steps to La Fortuna Waterfall and then 500 steps back. Then we hiked up and down Arenal Volcano and then the guide threw in another hill just for the fun of it. Oof. The views were INCREDIBLE and Carlos is EXTREMELY knowledgeable...just be prepared...mentally and physically. And lunch was delicious!

The tour was amazing. From the moment we met with our tour guide till the moment we got dropped off at our hotel. The waterfall was an amazing experience and so was the hike to the arenal volcano. We had great food and a very informational tour. Our tour guide Eddie/Eric now sure how it’s spelled was super enthusiastic about his job made the experience one for the books. Definitely bring water shoes and sneakers.

Fun hike & learning experience on Arenal mountain

Sadly, torrential rains and thunder with lightening shortened our tour but not before we got to hike up the lava field 'mountain' for a view of Arenal Volcano. Our guides, Eric and Christian were absolutely AMAZING and full of interesting facts of Costa Rica's awe-inspiring sustainable ecosystem. I learned SO much and had a blast in the process. This tour would have been a 5-star if it werent for being rained out but we were refunded half our ticket price on the same day. Very honourable company.

Amazing experience

We had an amazing time on this tour. We were able to hike to the arenal falls, arenal volcano, and hot springs all in one day. We were also able to meet some native Costa Ricans and learn their culture as well as see wildlife along the way. Our guide was great at teaching about wildlife and plants as well as history. I was able to do this with my seven and nine year old.

It was a great experience allowing us to see such beautiful parts of La Fortuna Arenal. The hike to the waterfall is pretty tedious but the views make it well worth it. Bring water shoes. Lunch was good and then going to the volcano was spectacular, it’s such a beautiful area. Lastly the hot springs were the perfect way to end the day. Carlos was a very knowledgeable tour guide and made the day super fun.

100% would recommend your— get Anthony for your guide!

My sister and I booked this as our main Arenal day trip and it was exceptional. Our tour guide, Anthony, was incredibly knowledgeable about everything related to La Fortuna, Arenal, and made the entire tour comfortable and fun. La Fortuna waterfall is a MUST visit (it was truly incredible), the lunch they served us was great, and our Arenal volcano trail hike was awesome. The volcano hike wasn’t particularly long or strenuous but hearing about the history and background on the volcano was a must. The hot springs at the end was nice, but I will say the Palerma Real hotel where we went in the hot springs does not offer higher end hot springs in the big picture of Arenal. Overall, would 100% recommend. Definitely ask for Anthony to be your guide!

Hi Victoria, You can pick our guides brains, you paid for it. They know a lot and are willing to share. Normaly they try to read the goup. Meaning if they sense that the group is more action and less information they will adjust to that. The other way around is possile aswell and they will make a bit more stops and will explain more. If its a mixed group its up to them to find the right balance. With their experience the guides know how to do this and are able to keep a mixed group satisfied.

Carlos, our tour guide was extremely informative & even if he didn’t know, he would find out. Amazing views but understand you gotta be in shape physically for this your. A lot of climbing up mountains. The views & experience was worth it.

Hi Jenelle, With our tour you have to put in the work to get your reward, nothing extreme but surely somewhat challenging. With a avarage physical condition you should be fine. Glad you enjoyed your rewards

Hi Nimisha, I´ll tell Anthony about your friendly words. It is good to let people know that besides the tour you book we can help with a wide variety of services. Ask the guide and he will contact us and we go to work with whatever wishes you have.
