Our tour guide was incredible. First our meeting point was at 6am when we woke up, our car battery died and couldn’t find a jump. By the time we call the car company for help it was already 6:30am. I tried to cancel but it was too late, the tour company came to pick us up which was incredibly thoughtful (thank you for that). The tour to La fortuna was very insightful. The volcano was awesome then OMG the Baldi was to die for, I could stay there all day. Hot water everywhere from the entrance until the end, nonstop, I loved it. Next time I’m in Costa Rica I’m definitely staying in the Caribbean side for sure.

Hot Springs only

The best part of the trip was the Hot Springs only. The rest of the trip was not a great exploration

Stopping at the local spots and getting natural products. The tour guy was very helpful and friendly and she spoke ENGLISH 😁
Great one day experience...

Great one day experience if you don’t have more time to spend in the Arenal area. Baldi hot springs were beautiful and so relaxing!
Skip this tour…overall very disappointing
PhyllisKlein, Jan 2024
This trip was a big disappointment - first, the tour guide was awful. She was disorganized and unprepared. It was never advertised that this was a mixed Spanish and English tour. The stop at Arenal volcano was just that - a stop to look at the volcano. She didn’t provide much information at all. Then Baldi - we had to wait in line - it did not seem that the tour co had pre-arranged our visit - took awhile to get wrist bands etc. She didn’t know anything about the place including info on lockers and towels. Also, we were told pick up between 7-8 - tried to get a better handle on the exact time through the app but unable to contact the tour co. We were picked up at 8:30. Never mentioned anywhere that the tour would not get back to San Jose until after 8 pm - missed our dinner reservations. Just a bad experience overall.
arenal volcano and baldi...

Amazing experience. Marcela was a very good instructor. Arenal visit is short but we spent around 4 hours in Baldi hot springs. Great views !
