The guides were absolutely incredible and super accomodating. My husband and I took the trip from Playa Hermosa all the way to La Fortuna on very little sleep - this trip took about 4 hours. We ended up being an hour late to the tour but the guides were incredibly helpful. They picked us up and took us to the tour to meet the rest of the group. Following the La Fortuna hike, waterfall, and lunch, my husband was incredibly tired and still feeling sick from the windy car ride and wanted to go to Tabacon to relax. The guides were super understanding and even went the extra mile of one, dropping us off at our car, and two offered to take us to Tabacon (guide us there in our car.) I was extremely grateful that they would even take us to our car, already going above and beyond, they even offered to escort us to Tabacon! We declined because Tabacon was truthfully a 15-minute drive and pretty easy to find but this is the generosity and helpfulness you can expect from these guides. 10 stars.
THANK YOU for being part of our first trip to such a gorgeous country! The tour was jam-packed with different stops and activities, even if they were short, and allowed for plenty of restroom and coffee breaks. Juan hustled tirelessly, ensuring that we were on schedule despite a small setback in the beginning (Costa Rica doesn't use addresses in the way that some countries do, so it was harder to find our hostel, but the tour manager was accessible by phone and willing to help us out too). So did all the boys working the ziplines - what they did was tough work but they were so friendly and experienced. To clarify the drop-off policy, if you plan to stay in La Fortuna at the end, let the tour company know in advance where your hotel is, and they will drop you off there as long as it's near the center of town. Just remind your driver after the hot springs. You'll miss out on dinner which is too bad only because all the food was a 10/10, but overall, we have no regrets about booking!
We had a wonderful experience on this tour. Our guide Erica was very personable and knowledgable. She had a deep respect for the preservation of nature and love for her home. We are very happy we opted to go with a guided tour; we quite simply would not have seen any wildlife without her keen eye. She went above and beyond to make our wishes of seeing a sloth a reality. We would highly recommend to all travelers. The transportation was clean and air conditioned, and the driver stayed with our belongings during excursions for safekeeping. They took special care when it came to Covid safety as well. Masks were worn during transportation and in all common areas such as lobbies and bathrooms, we were able to take them off while on trails. Hand sanitizer and hand washing was prevalent throughout. We felt very well cared for and safe.
Basically everything in the description. Our guides name was Juan who met all out expectations. Got home a little later than expected but if it meant more time at the hot tub, im not complaining. I did not do the zip line however some of the people we met did. Juan offered a last minute sign up offer if you change your mind.
Great tour! Carlos was so friendly and knowledgeable. We both enjoyed the beautiful scenery and learnt a lot about the local flora and founa. Thanks Carlos for an excellent day out and for being so flexible on the tour.
