This is a great tour for those who want to see a some amazing features of the Costa Rica!! It was fun to stop in Sarchi and get some amazing CR coffee as well as most things you could imagine at the souvenior shop. Then, we had a 2 hour drive to lunch at La Fortuna (which was delicious) and then to the Arenal viewpoint. Our guide, Eric, was very informative and I learned a lot about CR. Traveler's note: if you come during rainy season (May-November), you run the risk of not being able to see the volcano because of the clouds, but thankfully we could see it!! It was a GREAT view. Only took a 5 minute, inclined walk. If you enjoy beautiful gardens, hot tubing, and delicious food, the Tabacon Hot Springs are also for YOU!! Truly picturesque at the 5-star hotel. We had 3 hours there, but only spent two hours in the springs. There is also a spa available, but I'm sure that costs extra. You get a locker with a key to keep your stuff safe. Definitely go!! I had a great time even going alone!
Interesting and informative guide through our drive and the boat trip. Saw many "hidden" animals due to good boatman and guide. Guide "called" to howler and capuchin monkeys and encouraged them to come closer for perfect views. One curious capuchin actually came on the roof of our boat to checkout the tourists!
Everything about the tour was interesting, from the drive to the river to the journey up and down river. we saw plenty of wildlife and our guide Jose was friendly and informative. Highly recommended.
It was a beautiful ride and scenery. I highly recommend it. The guide (Jose) and the driver were very knowledgeable about all the animals we saw.
One of the best tours I’ve ever done! To this day I’ll forever be in debted to Get Your Guide for making solo travel that much easier & safer!
