Vida Aventura Park in Guanacaste: Zipline Tour, Horseback Ride and Hot Springs

Guanacaste, Costa Rica

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

It certainly did not meet the expectations we had, based upon your website or theirs. One driver picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at another area where another driver and "guide" took us to the Park. This "guide" was not the most forthcoming with information about flora and fauna but did answer questions when asked. We did not read anywhere about the long, winding, rocky, bumpy road that took us to the "adventure." I believe the guide told us we were driving through a dump, and we did see people working in that dump when we returned. All in all, that drive was about 1 hour from the main road and was very uncomfortable for someone who experiences motion sickness (as I do). Since I am afraid of heights, I did not experience the zipline; but most people seemed to enjoy it, although many did mention some difficulty in getting to the platforms. The real guides were the workers at the park; two young men led the zipline and horseback experiences, and they were wonderful. One lady did the cooking; and, since I sat in the food area awaiting the others from the zipline, she offered and made coffee for me--which I thought was very nice. The driver and "guide" who brought us to the park seemed to ignore me completely until it was time to join the horseback ride. As dry as the area seemed to be when we drove to the park, it surprised me to see so much wet and sloppy trails for the horses to ride through; and that was a bit scary sine the horses seemed to be slipping a bit. The guides stopped several places to take pictures, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves....although, it was a bit scary for me as a novice. Although the food was delicious, it certainly did not look like the pictures shown on the website; fried plaintains were the only fruit included in the meal. There was no mango as mentioned, and this was disappointing. The "mud bath" was a bowl of cold mud with paint brushes to apply to our bodies; since it was cold, I just used my hands.

Hanging Bridges Walking Tour in Arenal

Arenal, Costa Rica

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was fun and our guide made very interesting; Jose' was very friendly and had the driver stop the van before we entered the park to make sure we saw a hanging sloth. He did his best to make sure everyone was able to see the monkeys, birds, and snakes along the paths; and he would point out the different flora and if used for medicinal purposes. The most difficult part of the trip was that some of the paths were very steep; so, some of us who are older were slowing down then and "huffing and puffing" our way up. Jose' made sure we didn't get too far behind, and it was still an enjoyable experience--even with the slight rain that began as we were finishing our tour.

My Review

Trip was great, but it was very hectic trying to figure out where to go to trade the voucher for the tickets. Taking the 2-day tour was great because we used the 1st day to just watch the scenery and take pictures from the top of the bus and then decide where we wanted to get off to see more on the 2nd day.

My Review

Food was acceptable, although I skipped over the squid and other items I didn't think I'd like. Although we enjoyed the dancing, we were very disappointed in all of the yelling and poor excuse for singing in the show.
