The landscape on the entire drive was beautiful, especially the waterfall and volcano. Zip lining was by far the best zip lining experience that I have had, and the hot springs were very relaxing after the zip line adventure. Tour guide, Juan, was very knowledgeable and thorough, while also keeping the tour moving so we could experience every aspect of the itinerary to the fullest. Great day overall!

**Only suggestion would be to provide bottled water or make it clear that no drinks are provided between stops.

This tour was amazing and very well thought out. We took a scenic route to Arenal as opposed to the highway and the tour guide would describe farms : plantations : crops and animals as we spotted them. We stopped at a wonderful coffee shop, gift shop and bomb
Spot for lunch all before zip line adventure.

The zip line crew was fun and high energy and the safety measures for both COVID and the zip line adventure were fantastic and we had nothing to worry about at any time.

Juan was a wonderful tour guide! He was always on time, gave clear instructions, had a very good plan for all the stops and overall was very accommodating.

Would highly recommend to anyone. 10/10.

Our experience was AMAZING! It’s worth every penny. I would recommend anybody who’s reading this to come and see for themselves how wonderful this deal is. Special thanks to Jeffrey for being such a great tour guide! He is very personable and made everything more enjoyable. And Arturo for being an excellent driver. He made me feel so safe on the roads, even though we drove through rain, dense fog, and serpentine. Good energy all around.
Zip lining was amazing too, the staff cheered up even the most nervous first timers. It is one in a lifetime experience indeed.
Weather changes a lot, so I would recommend taking a rain jacket.
I saw a few negative reviews here, but I trusted hundreds of positive ones and now I can add mine to the bunch.
Thank you, PURA VIDA!

I booked that excursion for my birthday date and I received the pickup time almost in the same time that I booked the excursion. We were about 20 people in the bus, our guide was Francesco. We saw beautiful landscapes inthat excursion including a coffee plantation, the montains, many volcanoes, La Paz Waterfalls and stoped at a picturesque little restaurant with an amazing view of the waterfalls and had there an appetizer and an homemade fruit juice.

But the thing is our guide suggested way to many stops at a point that it was completely ridiculous! We stopped at many stores, grocery stores, souvenirs shops, the bank!

The lunch was really average.

We had a lot of fun at the zipline and the
views were impressive! When I asked the
guide how long we will be at the hot springs,
he said 1,5 hours, I asked him if we could
stay longer and he said that we got a 3 hours
drive to go back to our hotel so we couldn't.
The hot springs were awesome, definitely 1,5
hours is not enough at all!

When we left the hot springs, the guide
offered to go to the souvenirs shop for great
deals (yeah right)! That stop was for 25 min and we went for what I call a ?!!$&! waste of time! I was feeling so upset, that 25 minutes we could have had it at the hot springs instead!

The dinner was horrible, it was looking like a
truck stop, with neons light, dirty tables and
the food was completely disgusting | was so
sad to have my birthday dinner there!

Had a great day with Fernando.
Picked us up right on time and was very friendly and welcoming.
As soon as everyone was picked up (only 4 people in our case) he provided us with all kinds of interesting information about Costa Rica and the areas we drove through. The information was told in a fun and interactive way.

Sufficient time was given at each stop and we never felt rushed or like we were waiting around.

A long day but definitely worth it.

This trip really has something for everyone. Juan was a really great guide and had great local knowledge. The highlight was a great view of La Paz waterfall whilst watching hummingbirds flit around in the cafe just above it. 14 hours may seem a long day but you’re never more than a couple of hours on the bus at a time with frequent stops to grab a fresh coffee and try local delicacies. The trip ran like clockwork and it’s a great way to get out of San Jose and see some of the more picturesque parts of the county! I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone.

Incredibly satisfied overall with the entire tour! Our tour guide, Oscar, was very knowledgeable and kept the entire trip very interesting. He was an AWESOME guide and ensured we got the best views, food, and went the extra mile to show us some shots of the animals with a telescope for better viewing! From pointing out the wildlife and flowers to geographical features and history, I was impressed and happy to learn more about Costa Rica. The food was amazing and so flavorful and tasty. Also lots of stops to sightsee and take trips to the bathroom with souvenir shops and local food/snacks. The hot springs was relaxing after a busy day. Optional offer for zip lining for a extra charge but absolutely FABULOUS and definitely worth it to see views of the forest! Highly recommend if you want to venture out into the nature of Costa Rica away from the city for a day. Definitely book especially if you are only in the area for a short stay!

Thank you Fernando for showing such amazing enthusiam and detication to what you do. You made this experience one of my favorites in Costa Rica. After 14 hours of sharing you extensive knowledge of Costa Rica and your fascinating family history you were full of energy and eager to make us all smile. I can only say Thank you. You are a true professional. I am looking forward to taking another tour with you. I deducted a star only for the quality of the food. I had taken 3 other tours, at a similar price, here in Costa Rica and the food was much better. Think of WaterFall restaurant next time. It would make this tour 5plus stars. Jazmin

Francisco was an absolutely amazing leader. Worth every penny for the experience of a lifetime. This trip truly goes above and beyond expectations, and Fransico makes you feel save the whole time. You would be amiss to not take this excursion while in Costa Rica.

Fabulous day with so many things to see and do! We started at the coffee plantation where you can order coffee and some great homemade coffee cake before setting out. We then stopped several other places with snacks at each. My favorite of the trip was the "hummingbird" stop - you have to visit to grasp how unique it was. Ziplining with Juan was amazing - I was worried and he double strapped me up to ease my concern. I ended up loving every minute! Buy the photo/video deal so you have some memories to share - it was emailed by the time I was back from the tour. Lunch was delicious and the stop to soak in mineral spas was the perfect ending to a long but adventurous days. This will NOT disappoint!

Thank you very much for your kind words. We are so happy to know that you enjoyed the stops to see the coffee plantation, waterfalls, hummingbirds (which I agree with you, it’s a great setting), the zip lining adventure, and of course the relaxing hot springs. Please let us know the next time you wish to visit us and we will be glad to help you with the arrangements for another fantastic day in Costa Rica.
