Trip to Arenal and Baldi
Tetyana_B, Apr 2024
We liked our ride with Oscar the driver. He was telling about the area during our trip and answered all our questions. Also he made the additional sanitary and fruit stand stops per our requests. The ride was nice and smooth. We didn’t like Baldi because it was very crowded, expensive ($20 per drink) and the dinner buffet was terrible. Instead the lunch at the restaurant at La Fortuna before we got to Baldi was perfect. Try to choose a different resort when you are going to the Arenal area.
A great tour guide makes a huge difference

The tour guide made all the difference in this tour. It was foggy and rainy, the volcano was not seen, however, the guide made the tour memorable. We has a ripe plantain, yucca and chicharrones pizza for dinner, as recommended by tour guide. It was delicious!!!
