We visited Arenal volcano ( 3 nts. ) with horseback riding to La Fortuna Waterfall. Stayed at Arenal Kioro Hotel. Amazing. Then 10 nts. at Flamingo Beach Resort on the Pacific , scuba diving for 6 days. All put together by Bill Beard's with our request of what we would like to see and do.

Bill pioneered scuba diving in Costa Rica about forty years ago. He and his wife, Nadine, have provided first class service to thousands of divers over these many years.

We did the zip line tour and it was fabulous! We had a motley crew with various skill sets and ages and our guides were amazing! We had an older gentleman in our group and they were so kind and patient with him. They made our adventure fun and non-stressful. We will be sure to recommend the zip lining to... More

Great review, thank you. We're happy that you reported how our guides are. First, they love what they do. Second, Costa Ricans are very respectfully of the older generation, it's in their culture. Interesting thing is that our guides are the same with the younger generation, proving what we have known for 47 years, "Costa Ricans are really nice people".... More
