Tortuguero National Park

3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Overall, this was an okay trip as you got away from San Jose and was able to spend some time on the river and rainforest. But if you want to see sea turtles, I would highly recommend doing the overnighter (during the hatching season)...otherwise, it's very unlikely that you will see any. We saw some monkeys, crocs etc. which was good. When we confirmed the tour, we were told to bring a bathing suit which gave us the assumption that we would be using them for swimming. However, we didn't have any time on the beach to swim so I wouldn't count on having that either. Also, the food provided was mediocre...typical rice and beans fair, but definitely nothing to write home about.

My Review

The volcano and waterfall hike was very nice, especially as we lucked out with the weather and was able to see a clear view of the craters. The coffee tour was way too long in my opinion - it took 3 hours of the tour, and it really could have been done in 20 minutes...so that was a bit frustrating as we were only given an hour at the volcano and 90 minutes at the waterfalls. I would have much rather have had more time at those places than the coffee plantation. Don't expect anything spectacular food wise - typical rice/bean fair and below average additions.

Blue Lagoon Spa Roundtrip Transport from Reykjavik

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I used this to get from our hotel to the airport, with a relaxing few hours to kill at blue lagoon prior to the flight. They were on time and kept our luggage for us too. Highly recommend. As a side note, Kef airport is one of the nicest airports to have to wait for your flight in...everything you need is after security.

My Review

My 3 stars is because either Viator or the company that ran the tour booked our tour for *January 14*, even though our voucher clearly stated *February 14* and we didn't even book the tour until 2/7. Because I had experience with IE, and knew that they are a very timely company, when they still hadn't shown up 15 minutes to departure, I became concerned and called. Viator and IE were very quick to resolve the issue and I was able to see go to the tour...but my advice to future travelers is to definitely call if you haven't been picked up 20 minutes prior.

I deducted the second star just because the tour itself was lackluster. It's basically transportation to the said areas and you get just enough time to experience it before heading to the next place. The areas are beautiful and amazing....but don't expect the tour to add any value beyond that.

Note from Viator
We apologize for the inconvenience experienced, our records indicate a booking of Feb 14th, and we hope you were still able to enjoy your excursion.

My Review

Good experience, though we made the mistake of doing this just a few hours after we landed and it's certainly a fairly strenuous activity. Be prepared to crawl on lots of tiny rocks with sharp edges for parts of it. Deducted a star because the guide went way too fast and we were left trying to find him most of the time (and it wasn't just jet-lagged us because the entire group was going the same speed as us). He would dart far ahead and wait for us to catch up, say a few things, then dart again. Maybe that's supposed to be the "fun" of caving....but I wanted a guide to stay closer so we wouldn't go down a wrong way.
