Hot springs and volcanoes

Beautiful hike! Beautiful volcano! Beautiful people!! Do not miss this experience! Our tour guide did a wonderful job guiding us through the jungle pointing out the biodiversity! Well done 👍

The waterfall swim was awesome! Our hiking guide could have pointed out more wildlife. The hot springs were cool, but our guide left us to ourselves, which was a little unnerving since we had to walk and find our own way. Our main driver was excellent. He made sure we were safe, informed, and comfortable.

We loved this activity as we had a very knowledgeable tour guide named Ale. He was very accommodating from the moment he picked us up from our airbnb; offering to stop wherever we needed to so we could get snacks, breakfast, supplies, and even helping us to get groceries done for another day. During the hike, he not only showed us different types of vegetation and animals/insects, but also explained to us different historic things that took place.

Volcano, waterfalls, killer trees, iguanas, glass butterflies, hot springs, & mud mask!! Beautiful hike with an informative tour guide. I liked that our tour guide took us to a restaurant for breakfast before the trip & after the trip we stopped to get souvenirs at el Jardin.

This trip was the absolute best! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and would stop to tell us so much information during our hike. The hike was gorgeous, exploring both humid and dry forest landscapes. The walk to and the swim in the waterfall was beautiful and refreshing! Complete with hanging bridges and crystal clear mountain water. The lunch was delicious and they would bring fresh squeezed tropical fruit juice to your table. The mud baths were such a treat, we were stunned by how beautiful every single spot was. We had such an amazing day and slept so good that night after so much adventure!!

This experience was much more than I thought. We had an amazing time. The pickup was on time. We stop at a breakfast spot, where the food was delicious. Once reaching the park, we had a sightseeing tour guided by the best tour guide, Hugo. He was personable, and knowledgeable. He walks fast…be prepared. This hike is not for the weak. But well worth every moment. I could give it all away to you but it is just one of those things you need to see yourself to believe.

The whole trip was great from the Volcano to the waterfall to the hot springs! There is a LOT of hiking both up and downhill so just be prepared. Our guide Santos was very personable and knowledgeable about the nature in the area.

Cow in the cattle call
Lynda_B

We had a nice trip once we were finally to the park. Our guide knew the park well. That’s where the good stuff ends. Getting to and from is awful. They have a meeting spot, the garden, where all of the tour need to exchange passengers. We were there over an hour for “breakfast”. The real purpose is for tour companies to exchange or pick up passengers while you wait. We had some health issues come up after a strenuous hike, which I shared with our Guide. We even decline to participate in the last stop. I told him we were having health issues and needed to get to the hotel. Instead, on the way back, we stopped one more time at the tour souvenir/restaurant. I again expressed to the tour guide that we needed to get to the hotel due to health issues. Yet, we were there for almost 2 hours. We were waiting on folks to arrive from the airport. Several times, I expressed to the guy that we needed to go. However, when the new people arrived, he took both of them to their hotels first. He went down a road that should not be traveled by cars calling it a short cut but it was in the opposite direction of our hotel. He dropped off at 2 hotels and we were last. We took the medication in the room but had to cut our vacation short and go home to be seen by a physician. Unless you want to be a cow in the cattle call, book somewhere else. No recommendation. We’ve travelled for decades and this in the WORST experience.

It's a you-see-it-all trip. We hiked and swam, and relaxed in hot springs. A very long day but we experienced some of the best points of interest here. The tour guide Hector was very knowledgable in Costa Rica's history, and very fun to chat with. It's highly recommended.

The experience was awesome. Pick up was exactly as communicated. Hugo was an amazing guide. Have a more behind the scenes type tour, as he is very knowledgeable. I would recommend the tour to anyone!

The bus driver hit a dog...
Shannon_S
, Mar 2022
The bus driver hit a dog and may have killed it and didn’t stop on the way to the connection site. He didn’t see the dog and was driving over the lines and very fast unsafeky. Thank goodness we had a connection van for the tour itself and only had to spend from Tamarindo to the connection spot and then back home with this driver. This started off my tour in a very upsetting manner. The other driver at the connection and tour leader was great. Volcano is small but nice and the hot springs/ mud bath and waterfall are great for a swim.
