    What a wonderful experience! The guide, Javier, was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge about the flora and fauna, and he kept the pace lively and interesting. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing rescued examples of the less frequently seen animals of Costa Rica.

    Dear William, thank you so much for such us accurate comments about the visit to Peace Gardens. Hope them help others to visit us,
    A stunning nature/wildlife reserve.

    This is such a great tour. The gardens are an absolutely highlight of our time in Costa Rica. The nature/wildlife is fascinating, and the guide is on hand to answer any questions that you have. In addition to the beautiful wildlife, the falls themselves are stunning and you see them from a different perspective coming from the garden, than you would just driving past them on the road. The lunch is a good buffet lunch that's filling and set amidst the rainforest. The only hesitation I have is that we found the strawberry store was a let down. We thought we would see or be among a strawberry field (especially since it was the season). However, it is just a standard store, that happens to sell some strawberries. But don't let that deter you; the gardens are a must see in Costa Rica if you love any kind of nature. This tour had them for 3-4 hours, which we found good, but there are longer tours if you really want to take some time to explore them.

    Dear Jam: We greatly appreciate your comments regarding the stop at the strawberry farm, as well as the handling of the tour by our experienced tour guide. Regards,

    I would have given it 5 stars, but it was a long tour and they didn't even offer water on the tour bus.

    Great way to spend a day from San Jose. Alejandro was a fantastic guide—informative, funny, and friendly. The Wildlife Refuge had quite a variety of critters and many beautiful flowers. The lunch had a nice variety of goods and was plentiful. The waterfalls are very nice. 14 of us went together and all enjoyed it.

    Our guide Mario and driver Carlos made our trip memorable. We were a small group and the trip duration was just right. Mario has a good sense of humor and we really enjoyed his jokes. He was patient in showing attractions to everyone in the group and never complained about having to repeat if the occasion demanded. Highly recommend the tour.
