This trip was such an amazing experience, from the time of pick up to the time of drop off everything ran smoothly. The lunch and dinner that was provided was extremely well prepared and presented. The hot springs was amazing! good mixture of family friendly environment as well for singles/couples. Planning to go again next time I come to Costa Rica. In the resort Baldi Hot Springs they provided showers, changing rooms, and as well as towels you just have to leave a deposit of 5,000 Colones10.00 for each towel and they'll will give you a receipt. Once you're done with the towel make sure you return it with the receipt and they'll refund you the money you gave for the towels. Make sure you bring a bathing suit! someone in our trip wasn't aware and had to buy one in order to get into the multiple hot springs they have all over the resort. This trip is a MUST do !

This tour was worth the money. Just make sure you do not have Marten or Ricardo as your guides. They will leave you behind thinking a joke, but you will not have your passport or any money when they drive down the road. Beware of the corny KNOCK KNOCK you will get tired of this quickly. However the places you go to are amazing! At volcano take a walking stick, to the top.
