We had an amazing time during this tour. Anjelica was the most wonderful tour guide. She was very knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the area and she kept the group upbeat and excited at all times. We saw some spider monkeys, blue jean frogs, vipers and other cool creatures during our walk on the hanging bridges. The waterfall was extremely refreshing and the views after the volcono hike were breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour.

Great Tour
Timothy_B, Apr 2024
This was a great experience! Will was a Terrific Guide. He was very knowledgeable and very personable with all of the travelers. We did the package that included the Hanging Bridges, the Waterfall, the Volcano Hike, and Lunch. We were picked up exactly at 7am and dropped off before 4pm. The hikes aren’t too strenuous, but there are a lot of stairs up and down to the waterfall, so I’d say that was the most physical thing of the day. We saw two types of monkeys, a wild pig, various birds, lizards, and insects, and one tiny snake. Overall it was a great tour. We had plenty of time to enjoy each experience. I’d definitely recommend it.
Wildlife, Walking, Wonderful!

10/10 We Loved This Tour!!
Cheryl_K, Apr 2024
I can’t say enough good things about this tour! Our family of 6 (2 adults 4 kids ages 8-17) thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We were picked up at our hotel by Diego & driver, picked up one more amazing person at the meeting spot & commenced on a fabulous day. It rained almost the whole day but we absolutely loved it all! We were unprepared but there were ponchos at several places, plenty of restrooms, & opps for shopping if you like souvenirs. Diego is a natural. He was so fun to be with-very knowledgeable & funny to boot. He loves his country -it was evident all day & so contagious. We did a lot of tours on our trip & this was top of the list. You’ll love your day on this tour!
Active day

Angelica was amazing. How she could spot the creatures on the hikes was mind blowing. We enjoyed all of the activities. Definitely an active day. My calves felt those steps the next morning!
Definitely sign up!

Juan Carlos was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and upbeat, best day of my trip. He made sure we had a great experience, looking for any animal, from a red frog the size of a quarter to monkeys running thru the trees.

A few tips. 1. You can leave your items in the van during stops. 2. Gym shoes like Brooks are the best shoes for the hanging bridges & volcano tour. For the waterfall Keens or Chacos work well. They (Hanging Bridges owners) make you sign a waiver if you don't have closed-toed shoes for the hanging bridges. 3. snacks and drinks are available for purchase before & after all stops. 4. You can purchase sodas at the lunch stop. Water and juice are included. 5. You don't need to bring any water. They provided water bottles before and after all activities. 6. The 500 steps at the waterfall are manageable, but walking back up was somewhat unpleasant. 7. The water at the waterfall is very cold. Also, you don't need to bring many towels. They aren't provided, but I packed 5 and could have gotten by with 2. 8. There was wifi available at the waterfall & possibly the hanging bridges. 9. The volcano trail was partially shady. You still need sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen, but there was some relief from the sun.
Amazing day

Best day in costa rica

We did all three tours in one day and had an amazing time. Our guide Val was so knowledgeable and had a real respect for the animals and country she shared with us. It was outstanding.
Great time in Arenal
Jaouida_L, Mar 2024
We had a wonderful time. We were mesmerized by everything we saw. The tour was well organized. The guide, Val, was knowledgeable of her stuff, she had an answer to all our questions on top of being very friendly. We definitely recommend this tour.
Jessica_B, Mar 2024
Amazing!! Diego is a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable about plants and animals. We saw so much more than we would have just walking on our own. Highly recommend!!

Highlights of the La Fortuna area
Daniel_N, Mar 2024
Guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. Her enthusiasm for the nature of Costa Rica was authentic. Pace was perfect.
Best way to see sights of La Fortuna
Nick_C, Mar 2024
What a great tour! Angelica was the best guide we could ask for. She was so knowledgeable, friendly, and had a trained eye for spotting wildlife. The day was an early start, but that was needed as many of the tourist sites get busy later in the day. We loved all of the destinations we went to. A few highlights of why you should book this tour over others, or instead of going alone: - It is a small group tour (our group was only 11). Many other tour groups have much bigger groups. - Angelica was a walking encyclopedia. She knew the answer to any question you asked her. Her knowledge is a gift. Thanks to her, we were able to see sloths, toads, and many other cool animals. She was fantastic at leading our group throughout the day - you can tell she is passionate about showing the wonders of Costa Rica to others! - There will be a driver for the entire day. Our van was air-conditioned, new, and was stocked with ice cold waters every time we got into the car. We felt extremely safe. - Delicious lunch and all park entry fees were included in the tour price. - At the waterfall, your tour guide will keep an eye on your bags for you so that you can enjoy swimming and the nature. We had no negative comments about this tour. Highly recommend for anyone coming to La Fortuna!
Wonderful tour, Wilbert...

Wonderful tour, Wilbert was very knowledgeable and explained things very well. We saw lots of wildlife. The trip was well organized and planned
Well worth experience
Nestor_R, Mar 2024
Our guide, Valeria (Val), was fun and engaging. Even with 11 people she was able to connect with each of us and provide a unique and educational experience. Her passion for both the history and nature of the area came through in her explanations. This is definitely an experience you do not want to miss out on.
Great Tour

The tour was wonderful! Angelica was an incredible tour guide and Ron was a great driver. Angelica was very friendly and personable, and provided fascinating details about the Arenal volcano and the various plant and animal species in the area. She even helped us to take pictures of animals we saw on the trails. Ron and Angelica also frequently offered us water bottles throughout the day if we needed it, which was a very kind gesture. 10/10 experience, I highly recommend it to anyone.
Excellent rainforest tour and waterfall
