We were booked on a 1000 tubing tour, the night before the manager messaged us to say that it was cancelled due to weather reasons however we could go in the afternoon. Unfortunately, the afternoon didn't work for us to which we were then told we could go at 0800. This made no sense but we accepted the time change. Luckily for the company, their tour guides were amazing and more than made up for the sour taste that was left by the manager the night before. We had the best time with our guides Rodrigo and Ronnie and can't recommend this experience enough
Highlight of CR

This was the highlight of our trip. The two guides were amazing. The four of us could not have enjoyed it more.

My group and I were suppose to get picked up at 10am and we weren’t. They forgot about us. Then they put us on a 1pm tour and we had to call because they forgot about us again and had to come back. Apparently this isn’t the first time this has happened to customers. Long story short we didn’t get to river tube or see the hot springs. Complete disappointment.
Best guides!!
