    Our tour guide Fernando made our experience exceptional. He was patient with us, very polite and helped make our adventures so much fun. I’d recommend Fernando to any of my family or friends that are visiting Costa Rica.

    Jayro was a very warm, kind and knowledgable tour guide. Would recommend a tour and ride with him anytime!

    Long ride but worth it!

    The tour arrived on time and we were the first pickup at 6am Fernando was incredibly sweet and worked well with my daughter (age 10). We were the only English speaking group on the tour so he was more than patient to explain in both English and Spanish The ride from San Jose was 3 hours (there was a bathroom break) I did not expect the included breakfast to be prepackaged sandwiches- but they were decent! It also included fruit and juice boxes The views are breathtaking along the way. There are TONS of stairs to get to the waterfall- to keep in mind if you can not climb 500 stairs down and up. Overall, the trip was long, tiring and WORTH IT.

    Andrew_B, Dec 2023
    The sights mentioned on the tour are all great, lunch was at a hotel which had hot springs and it was very tasty, serving 3 courses with coffee and juices included. The only downside to the tour, which dropped the rating from 5 to 4 stars, is that the tour guide arrived almost 40 minutes late (we waited at a hotel for some people for 20 minutes and then an additional 20 minutes for the guide). This meant that we could only spend an hour at the waterfall rather than 2 hours as advertised. The guide was friendly but did not offer much advice on any flora or fauna either on the way to the volcano or in the park. More insight would have been helpful to understand what we are looking at.

    Hayro is definitely who to book with if you want a quality experience. Our group of 7 had the best time. He was very informative and helpful. He made it special for the birthday girl at the restaurant. We saw sooo many animals as we ventured to the hanging bridges. He really has a good eye! We definitely will be spending people his way. Pura Vida❤️

    Magical experience not easily forgotten
    Joy_S, Aug 2023
    I really enjoyed this tour. It was a lot of driving and a lot of hiking in between but well worth it. Our guide Hayro really made this tour. He was really knowledgeable about all kinds of things relating to Costa Rica especially the flora and fauna. He was also very friendly and funny. The drive was entertaining. The hike with the hanging bridges was scary at first but we got the hang of it and the views were breathtaking. We got to observe many different species of animals including two poisonous snakes. There was even a small waterfall at this location as well. The pièce de résistance was the lunch at the Los Lagos Spa and Resort. First let me say that the restaurant was beautiful. The food was even better. The soak in the hot springs was magical. It eased my neck pain from a previous injury and made me feel like new again. The spring with the bar was great. Everyone here was so friendly. It was like a cultural melting pot with people from all over the world coexisting in blissful harmony.

    This was the best tour you can do if you have a short time frame, you spend the whole day on this tour but it is worth every penny spent on it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and courteous!

    What an amazing day! When we were picked up we were excited to hear that my husband and I were the only ones on this tour. Our guide was awesome! Hayro was so knowledgeable about SO many things. Made the long ride go by so fast. The waterfall was beautiful.. the walk there though is a lot! We were warned but chose to try anyway. The hanging bridges tour was amazing. Our guide was able to hear noises and decipher what was in the area, and then find it! We got to see snakes, cool frogs and birds. Best of all, 2 different kinds of monkeys hanging and swinging from trees. We saw howler monkeys and spider monkeys. Lunch was great and the hot springs were a great way to end the day. It is a long day though! Half of the day will be spent in the car, but again, if you get Hayro, you will learn so much and the drive will fly by!

    Great tour for couples or friends. A decent amount of walking so pre-hydrate. The walk to the waterfall’s base was worth the effort.

    Davina_R, Jun 2023
    This was such an awesome experience! Our tour guide, Hayro, was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make sure we got the full experience. We saw so many beautiful animals including red frogs! We saw so may animals that we wouldn't have seen if we went on our own. My mom and I had a great time and will definitely be coming back!

    Raghu_K, May 2023
    The place selections were good. But we had a tour guide who was good, but very impatient whenever we asked questions. He is not at all tourist friendly person.

    Had such a good time with Alejandro our tour guide and Eduardo, his/our driver. They drove us safely to our locations and guided us through the attractions and got us back safely. Good conversation with Alejandro. Knowledgeable and fun. I recommend him for sure. Shall we return to Costa Rica for another vacation we will be requesting him again.

    AWESOME EXPERIENCE
    Sara_A, Nov 2022
    Alejandro really made our trip! It was very comforting having a tour guide speak fluently in English! We had a tour guide who cared about making our experience special. We drove past one waterfall, then hiked down the 500 stairs to get to another! He took many pictures of us without getting annoyed with us. We experienced the hanging bridges and Alejandro made it a point to find all the animals we wanted to see along the way! Overall, everything was fabulous. We have no complaints and would fully recommend this tour, especially with Alejandro! The driver drove very safe and made us feel comfortable!

    Amazing Tour- Totally worth it!
    Elisa_I, Aug 2022
    Jayro was our guide. He was knowledgeable and funny! Gave us so much personalized attention and was very kind with our 9 year old daughter. We LOVED this tour! The hanging bridges was the best part. The next day our legs were killing us because of all the stair climbing and hiking , so be prepared! I wouldn’t recommend very little kids for this tour but my 9 year old was a trooper! She enjoyed it so much. Jayro is the man! Thank you for everything!

    Mixed feelings
    CARY, Oct 2021
    We have mixed feelings about this tour! On one hand, La Fortuna Waterfall and the views of the Arenal Volcano are worth the long trip from/back to San Jose (but definitely do not go on a Sunday or you will have to suffer the horrible traffic, specially in an uncomfortable van). We were disappointed with our guide Jairo since he wanted to show us the La Fortuna waterfall from afar in an observation deck and we had to push hard for him to let us go down the trail and actually enjoy the amazing waterfall and dip into it (believe me is worth the hike!) and he didn’t go down with us. The Mystic Park with the hanging bridges was nice but I feel he took too much time of the trip to “show” us and talk about animals that were not seen at the time and plants that we were not into it. That left little time to enjoy the hot thermal baths at the resort. He was great in other things like he actually spotted a sloth trying to cross the road and we were able to take pictures and be in close proximity to it! The cost of the trip also was a little bit high compared to the others we took equally far from San Jose.
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
    Dear Customer, Thank you very much for your comments, because these are nature tours, the focus is to teach you about nature and that you learn about a primary forest in a totally free environment (forest), due to many factors it is possible or not to see animals, the explanation of our guide Hayro is precisely our focus, it is important to learn about the environment, animals, plants and so on of the place where you are, or you expected a tour without any explanation? In the waterfall according to the report, you had an hour and a half, enough time to swim and enjoy, and in the thermal water you had more than 3 hours, since this tour has a one hour start time, the itinerary already has planned waiting times for traffic, and for any kind of delay. No matter what happens, the tour always has the same duration, we monitor each trip in real time and control the time in each attraction, but thank you very much anyway for your comment. Best regards,
