What people are saying about Tamarindo
We had a small group and we were able to see crocodiles (even babies), exotic birds, and two kinds of monkeys! Our guide would not give up until we saw the monkeys and it made our day! The guide was fun and shared a lot of great Costa Rica knowledge with us. This was NOT the most expensive river tour, we searched around, but it was THE BEST! (FYI...all tours are on the same river and use the same type of boat so no need to go for the most expensive).
The staff was very accommodating and helpful. From zip lining over the forest canopy to horse back riding through the trees and creek, to the hot spring pool, there is something for everybody. I would strongly recommend this activity. Only issue is the travel time to the park but that’s the price to pay for beautiful nature
Driver was an excellent driver. Guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Tour was great on nice boat which felt safe near alligators. Driver and guide constantly alert for animals. We saw alligators, shore birds, very active moneys and iquanas
The guide Ray was knowledgeable, informative, and fun. We saw white-throat campion monkeys, howler monkeys, iguanas, basilisks, bats, crocodiles, and lots of birds. We even had a monkey on our boat! Lots of fun.
Most difficult part was finding where to go to board catamaran. Better directions are needed!
