The all-inclusive tour was excellent with our guide, Oscar, who is very knowledgeable about Costa Rica and managed time well. After picking up guests at hotels, we started with a short coffee plantation tour, then on to visit waterfalls, and to an iguana sanctuary. Before heading to lunch, we also made a quick stop to see sloths and to take photos. Food at lunch was good, then we headed to the Zip line, which was a fantastic experience with the professional staff at Go Adventure Arenal Park. After, we relaxed at a resort near the Arenal Volcano. The volcano fortunately was visible, with fairly clear skies. We then made a quick stop to a large souvenir shop then onto a good dinner, before getting dropped back to our hotels. It was a fantastic day - I was picked up at about 6:30 am from my hotel and returned about 9 pm.

In the way to Arenal we saw amazing sights, mountains, waterfalls, huge lizards, colorful birds and more. The rainforest ziplining was awe inspiring, the meals were delicious, and the hotspring pools were luxurious. Our guide, Jeff, was friendly and knowledgeable. It was an amazing day.

Harlem was a wonderful tour guide, full of knowledge about Costa Rica and very entertaining. The tour had many fun activities that were well planned and timed out nicely. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area!

Great experience with Fernando! Wonderful time swimming in the waterfall, hanging out in the hot springs while it poured and delicious food!

Fue una experiencia maravillosa! El paisaje es increíble y los lugares que se visitan en este tour valen muchísimo la pena.
