Overall, the idea of the trip is good! We left early morning to collect all the people and move to Arenal. We made two stops, to have a quick look to one square with a nice church and historical chariot (that was quick and nice) and another one at souvenir place (not needed and took 30 min of time). The lunch was nice but the tour to Arenal was a simple stop at the sightseeing spot. I would suggest adding at least an easy walk in one of the tracks around the vulcan. The hot springs were very beautiful and dinner included as well, but instead of 4 hrs we could stay less and enjoy more a walk around Arenal. I did not like the guide of the day, though. He was just moving us around under pressure. No passion, no knowledge shared, just schedules (I did a lot of daily trips from San Jose and it was the 1st time it happened).
Honestly was absoluetly fantastic - i was interested in it obviously for the hot springs/arenal volcano, but we ended up stopping in another town to shop and see something unrelated. On one hand it was knowledge i later was grategul to have acquired but on the other just added a lot more time to the trip that i would have probably cut out. I felt a bit like a sheep in the tourit herd... But overall great deal for the money and i dont think i need to share how absoluetly AMAZING and incredible the natural beauty is ugh!!!!!!

Volcano Hike, Waterfall Swim & Hot Springs Combo on Rincon de la Vieja
, Jan 2020
Would definitely recommend this excursion. Our guide, Paul, was knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make it a memorable day. Lunch was wonderful. Having small groups on these trips gives one the 'private tour' experience.
The hiking tour was amazing! First let me say that our Tour Guide Martin and Driver Nelson were so friendly and nice. They really made my entire group of six feel welcomed and comfortable.Martin told us a lot about Costa Rica during the drive to the Volcano National Park. The hike through the exotic tropical forest to the volcanic activity was filled with wonders. We saw spider monkeys swinging from trees (absolutely awesome!), several white-nosed coati, a CR blue jay (which is 2 1/2 times larger than an American blue jay), multiple types of trees including the Ficus Strangler Tree, huge pre-historic looking plants,Touch-Me-Nots (plants that move when you touch them), and various insects. The volcanic activity included boiling sulfur ponds, bubbling mud pits, steaming fumaroles and so much more. The waterfall was magnificent. Lunch was super delicious. And last but not least, the volcanic mud bath and hot springs portion of the trip was an exhilarating experience. The tour was so worth the price.
I have to admit that by the end of the day I was exhausted, but then I am not in the best physical shape. The tour was from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and my cousin's Fitbit said we did 14,457 steps for the tour. It was an amazing day!!!
I booked this hike late the night before and our tour guide Martin was still able to communicate with us and transport us on our trip. He did an amazing job at making the experience feel genuine and personal. He bought us fruit and water and told us old time stories allowing us to be emerged in the culture. This hike was the highlight of my vacation in costa rica. I would recommend this hike and tour guide to any person who is looking for a cultural and holistic experience.

Arenal Volcano and Baldi Hot Springs Day Trip from San Jose
Be prepared for a long day!!
, Dec 2019
Wonderful hot springs in Baldi
Our tour guide Javier was fabulous and explained everything well in English and Spanish
A lot of time spent and wasted on pick ups and drop offs to and from trip (additional 2/3 hours being on the bus)
Bus was very uncomfortable and tight considering you are spending 6 to 7 hours on the bus round drip. There wasn't enough leg room
Lunch and dinner was average - food was bland and not worth the price- better off not doing the tour package and eating at one of the restaurants at the springs
All in all the trip was average and the hot springs made it worth it but would recommend not doing the tour and looking into other options to save time and spend time as you wish

Vandara Adventure Combo: Horseback Riding, Ziplining and Hot Springs
Fantastic tour operator; Vandara itself is so-so
, Jan 2020
Our tour operator (Elial) was great. The van was nice, his driving was excellent and he explained everything to us. However, Vandara park itself was so-so. We always seemed to end up behind a very large group, having to wait a long time for everything. For example, we had to wait almost an hour for the zip line, about 45 min for the water slide, etc. These long waits are definitely not what I want to do on vacation. But none of that was Elial's fault and he did a great job shepherding us around and providing guidance along the way.
