    Great experience, David was our guide and he answered all our questions about the rivers, wild life etc. It truly was a memorable, exciting adventure, recommended it to our family and they had the same great experience.

    My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the Palo Verde excursion. The guide, Alejandro, was so knowledgable and the boat driver knew exactly hoe to spot wildlife without disturbing them. Lunch at Ranchero Los Coyotes was good, and I loved the visit to Guaitil to see the indigenous pottery. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the natural beauty of Costa Rica.

    This was a fantastic tour! Dayron was an incredible tour guide who explained things well and helped us feel safe the entire time. None of us had any significant experience riding ATVs and yet we were able to quickly get the hang of things and enjoy the sights. He took pictures for us and helped us find the private little spots that only the locals know about. Highly recommended!

    Tom was an excellent guide. I can’t recommend him enough! He was flexible with booking & a very helpful teacher. Incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife of the island

    We loved this tour so much that we took it twice during our 11-day stay in Playas del Coco! The crew was friendly and helpful from start to finish. We were served delicious drinks and food. Lots of room to spread out and enjoy the incredible views, including dolphins and sea turtles. Our cruises ended with a beautiful sunset. Thank you, Marlin del Rey!

    I did the sunset snorkeling and sailing and it was absolutely beautiful. The entire crew was very skilled and accommodating, and the dinner they made for us was delicious with chicken and fish options, plus sides. They even made a special dinner for one guest who was a vegetarian. I definitely recommend this trip!

    This was an amazing excursion! The zip lines
    were unique and unlike | have ever
    experienced! Some went through a narrow
    canyon! Our driver Jose was the best! He made our trip top
    notch. He was very professional and even
    stopped for us to get some breakfast since it
    was an early pickup. If you visit Costa Rica and
    opt for an excursion, ask for Jose! Pura Vida!

    This was one of the highlights from our trip to Costa Rica. Our guide Rayner was great, picked us up and got us on our way. Once we got to the Canyon Adventure compound, he checked in with us regularly and walked us through the itinerary for the day, meals, etc. We had such a fun day zip-lining, white water rafting, riding horses and ending up in the hot spring pools. Fair warning, if you elect to do the Volcanic Mud bath at the hot springs, prepare for the smell to stick with you for days on your clothing.. Other than that, I'd highly recommend this tour, and would also recommend booking through Pininos Adventures - we also booked our ATV & Beach tour with them, and overall had excellent customer service!

    We did the zip lining, water slide (water was so cold!), hot springs, and horseback riding. Water slide was my favorite - goes super fast! Hated the horseback riding - poor horses - too many people on that tour for me. Got a massage at the hot spring which was nice. Gift shop on site.

    We are a family of four, with two kids ages 7 and 11. We had the option to do snorkeling and coast fishing or deep sea fishing. My kids really wanted to catch a fish to eat, so deep sea it was. We drove out to sea for about an hour, saw some turtles and dolphins on the way, then started fishing and pretty quickly caught two mahi mahi, which was very exciting! Just about when we were going to call it done, we hooked a black tuna. My kids each reeled in a fish! We took the mahi mahi direct to the Chingurita restaurant where you are dropped off, and they cooked it fresh. Muy bueno! Juan Pablo was very gracious and communication was wonderful for pick-up. The boat captain was also very kind.

    We had a group of 10 ages ranging from 11 to 72 out on the catamaran and it was an amazing afternoon. The crew was very friendly and enjoyable to be around. They made delicious drinks, food and took us to a beautiful beach. The water activities were excellent - on the beach we saw hundreds of crabs and turtle tracks.

    For appetizers they made bruschetta and fresh fruit plate. For lunch they served rice and chicken, beans, steamed veggies, potatoes, salad and chips. Everything was great and our kids liked it too.

    Bathroom on boat was clean and they had hand sanitizer available for all to use as well.

    We met Tom on Playa Tamarindo and decided to message him. He replied quickly on Whatsapp and it was easy to arrange the kayak tour of the estuary.

    We had a great time. It was a private tour with just my partner and I, each having our own kayak, which was fun. We like kayaking so if you don't wish to do physical activity, I'd suggest you choose the boat option instead.

    Tom was a good tour guide, having lots of knowledge about the local trees, plants and animals. We saw lots of birds and howler monkeys. No crocodiles seen on our trip but they can be quite elusive so not unexpected. We parked our kayaks and took a walking tour of the forest, seeing bats in a hollow tree, and cool plants thay fold when you touch them! Tom is very passionate about the flora and fauna of the place so that was lovely.

    Tip: make sure you bring bug spray because mosquitos are relentless in the forest!

    We had a great time surfing on Playa Grande with JP and Johel. All four of us got up thanks to JP. My kids 17 and 11 have been talking about it all day. Johel had a sprained ankle but took some great photos which were included. And enjoyed the fresh pineapple snack as well! JP picked us up and the resort and took us to the beach as well. Perfect day all around. Thanks!
