Great outdoor experience in Costa Rica

It was time well spent with a great tour guide (Juan). Even though it was a long day, time went by quick with many interesting stops and recharging with good local food. The high point for us was zip lining, which we thoroughly enjoyed. I credit them for infusing confidence with high safety standards.

Where do I begin?! Absolutely incredible day led by our amazing tour guide, Juan. My wife and I extended our stay 1 day to book this trip to cap off our honeymoon and we are so happy we did. It was a smooth easy way to enjoy the views of Costa Rica on the way to each activity and Juan taught us a lot of history along the way. He's also an incredible driver and I felt safe every step of the way (even in the steep hills of the mountains). Brought home some coffee from the local coffee farm en route and grabbed a snack. The meals are amazing every stop. The souvenir shop at the ziplining has everything you can imagine at reasonable rates. I could go on forever...Book this trip!!!

This combo pack was perfect, but our tour guide, Juan, made it even more magical. On the way to Arenal we had designated spots like the cafe and the coffee bean plantation but Juan knew all the cool spots where we could find sloths, iguanas, and coati (some cool animal I never knew existed). Juan was nice enough to pull over and allow time for us to take pictures with the animals and we were still able to keep to our schedule. The food and drinks at each location we stopped at was delicious and more than enough. We didn't have to eat any of the snacks or drinks we brought with us. Luckily Arenal was clear when we went so we got great pictures of the volcano (which is magnificent.) The ziplining was very fun and everyone was helpful and kind. I really recommend this tour for everyone from couples to friends and lovers. Hopefully you'll end up with Juan to add that extra spark to your trip! Trip date: February 14, 2021

My friend and I stayed 4 days in Costa Rica only and I’m so happy we chose this excursion that we are going to remember for the rest of our lives!!! It was worth every penny. Both of us are nature lovers so this was a perfect trip for us. We were able to see and experience so many different things during one day. Our tour guide was Juan and he did outstanding job. First of all he is a great driver, very patient, professional and very knowledgeable. He speaks fluent English and Spanish. I highly recommend him. Everything was organized perfectly and I don’t know which part of the excursion I liked better, from the Coffee plantation, zip lining, bird watching to the breathtaking hot springs. Costa Rica has the soul and I can’t wait to come back !

This activity did not disappoint from the minute we were picked up to being dropped back at our hotel. Juan was our driver and your guide and he was super patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Although I was too scared to actually do the zip lining everything else was immaculate. My boyfriend went on the zip line and had a blast! Best trip I’ve ever been on so far. The food was great we made stops at the coffee shop etc and it was awesome! Definitely recommend

our driver and guide was Alex. He was literally the most adorable person in the world, gave us every information needed for the tour, took us to some amazing places. The food both lunch and dinner were fantastic. The drive back home at night was super dark and foggy and yet I felt very safe with Alex driving us home. DO THIS TOUR.

I have been to Costa Rica several times; my family lives here. This trip, I brought my friend with me so I thought it would be fun to do some touristy stuff since I normally don't. This combo tour was perfect! Great price for the amount of activities offered. We were picked up from our hotel in downtown San José around 6:40am (which was only 20 minutes later than the original pick-up time). Breakfast at our hotel started at 6am so we were able to eat a light breakfast beforehand. I would recommend eating something light as your first snack will be about an hour and a half to 2 hours into the tour. We were a group of 6 and the van was big enough to space out and be comfortable. Our guide, Juan, was awesome! He's a great driver and did a great job of pointing things out along the way. We didn't run into any traffic on the ride up and hardly any on the way back either! Guess we got lucky that day because traffic in that area is usually bad. This tour is definitely covid-friendly. We all had masks on and Juan had a bottle of alcohol spray that he would use on our hands whenever we would re-enter the van. All the food and drinks were delicious and the locals we met were very friendly. The view at the coffee plantation was gorgeous, zip lining was exhilarating, and the hot springs resort was a perfect relaxing end to the day. If you do zip lining, be sure to bring a change of clothes because you WILL get dirty. If you want to take a shower at the hot springs resort you will be able to (not sure if soap is provided so bring some just in case). Overall, this tour was amazing and exceeded our expectations. I would definitely do it again if I bring another friend to Costa Rica. The only "con" from this tour was that we weren't able to see the Arenal volcano because of the thick fog in the area, but that's not something they can control.

A mixed day of sightseeing and adventure

I highly recommend this experience. Both me and my son (who is an adult) went on this trip, and had an amazing day. On the way to the volcano we stopped at a small cafe which overlooks the forest and a fabulous spot for bird watching, with the birds within a couple of feet distance. Lots of Humming birds and other exotic birds seen. The zip wiring experience was also fabulous. Our tour guide was so helpful and informative and continuously stopped along the route to show us sloths and other animals in the forest and scenic views including waterfalls etc. This was one of the best trips I went on.

What a great day! We did so much during the long and enjoyable day. Alex was a great tour guide and pointed out sites and included extra stops that were exciting that weren’t even listed in the itinerary. We would totally recommend the tour.

We really enjoyed this excursion! It was great to get out of the city and see more of Costa Rica! Our guide Juan was excellent! He was very informative, helpful, and accommodating! He was even able to spot a sloth and took the time to make sure everyone in our group was able to see. I highly recommend this tour.
