We had a great time visiting the Arenal Volcano and Mistico Hanging Bridges. Got to see lots of the wildlife there… as well as an in-depth summary of their habits, lifestyle,… Really appreciated not only the willingness but also the enthousiasm to clear up any questions that came to mind. Thanks David

The food was great (really recommend the fish) and the transport was punctual between the different locations.

100% would recommend this tour to nature enthousiasts of any level. An enjoyable, informative tour to quench your thirst for getting to know more about Costa Rica’s rich biodiversity.

We would definitely recommend this tour!

First off, our tour guide Raul was phenomenal. He was knowledgeable, funny and entertaining, and took the time to really get to know each group within the tour. You can really tell he took a genuine interest in ensuring the entire group had a good time.

The hike itself was not too difficult, and Raul did a great job pacing it with frequent stops. While stopped, he did a great job conversing with the group and sharing interesting facts. The view at the end was well worth it.

Lunch was very nicely set up, and the hot springs were a perfect way to end the day!

What can I begin to say? If you’re looking for a seriously amazing experience I would totally recommend this tour. Raul, Don Pedro, Andrea and Augusto were the dream team!!! Raul does an amazing job explaining the importance of the tropical forest and stops to rest and admire the animals and plants that are residing in the arenal area. Don Pedro is the driver a very respectful gentleman with a humorous side.
Andrea and Augusto are the photography couple of the area. They go above and beyond by taking pictures of the tourists, videos and even using a drone during the peak of the hike.

All of them make this experience amazing.

I had a great time during the tour. It was a well rounded trip with a bit of everything. A rewarding hike to the top to amazing views of the Arenal Volcano, abundant flora fauna along the way and a hearty meal prepared by the locals. For those who felt adventurous you could swing like Tarzan into the River and in the end everyone gets to relax in the natural spa of thermal springs while being pampered with face masks and shots! Special shout out to Raul, who along with his team made the whole experience lively and fun and made us feel like one big happy family on a fun day out.

Raul was our guild and he made our trip one to remember!! He treated us like his family and was extremely knowledgeable about La Fortuna and the culture there. You could tell he loved his job and enjoyed what he was doing. It was a fun experience and I would do it again every day if I could! I would 100% recommend going to this above any other tour (even though there’s A LOT to do in La Fortuna) it’s the best experience, you’ll learn a lot and see things that you can ONLY see on this tour!! 10 out of 10!!

We are so pleased we booked this half day tour. The shuttle arrived on time to pick us up from our accommodation and there was a short stop at a shop in La Fortuna to pick up refreshments for the hike. We then drove 15-20min to the national park and start of the hike. Our guide was Sebastian who was very knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife in the forest and he made lots of stops along the trail to show us things of interest. The trail is quite steep in places and the final stages are up volcanic rock so good strong shoes is advised, though lots of our group were wearing trainers. The views of the volcano where amazing. We stopped for a while to refresh before descending down to the start where the more adventurous group members had a go on the Tarzan swing. Lunch was delicious- grilled chicken rice and salad. There are bathrooms and changing facilities.

We then drove 10min or so to the hot springs. Water shoes/trainers are essential as the river bed rocks are sharp!

After about an hour in the hot springs we drove back to la fortuna to be dropped off.

Thoroughly enjoyable day.

Thanks to the team and Sebastian 😄

Talk about an entertaining and fun-filled tour! Raul the tour guide was as knowledgeable as he was fun to be around. His energy was absolutely infectious and was very obvious how much he loves his city and its history. We had a relaxing hot spring and face mud treatment after a great hike to the viewpoint of the Arenal Volcano. New friends made, and lots of memories to hold on to!

This hike was an amazing experience in Arenal! Our guides Raul and Sergio were so friendly and knew so much about the area. We started off with the hike to the volcano with Raul who was very knowledgeable about the plants and animals in the area and so fun as well. After the hike we cooled off with a swim in the lake next to the volcano (I highly suggest jumping in using the rope swing). Lunch was amazing, it was made by a family in Arenal so you can support the locals while also eating a delicious meal. After lunch we headed to the thermal river with Sergio who treated us to volcanic mud masks and chupitos! I went with my family (my parents and my two sisters) and there was something for everyone. We could not have asked for a better day. Definitely book your tours through this company, you will not be disappointed!

This was a cool hike until it started raining. The guide was the only one with an umbrella and at one point it was raining so hard, he left us as the hike was over. nice scenery and views. the food was great for lunch. Usually when I book an activity and include food, I always have a good experience. The food was bomb!!!
