Lots of life
, Jan 2020
Diving was good. A ton of life, puffer fish, eels, bait balls and star fish. I brought a 7 mil thinking the water was going to be cold in January but ended up using the guides 3 mil which was perfect. Great crew with bottled water, fruit and snacks. Highly recommend.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Thank you for diving with us and enjoying the tremendous amounts of marine life we have on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. We have been diving here since 1970 and it has always been exciting and never boring. Yes, a 3mm is usually sufficient during winter months but a skin or half mil is all you need in the Summer time. We have 41 dive sites plus Catalina & Bat islands so we hope you will return and make some more dives with us. Thanks again, PURA VIDA and safe diving.

ATV Tour from Guanacaste | Feb 2020
Congo Trails was very well organized. They even picked us up. I enjoyed going through the water and seeing animals especially the monkeys! I did lose my cheap sunglasses, so be careful with your belongings.

Very fun inclusive activity for friends, family and couples

Guanacaste Snorkel and Sunset Cruise | Dec 2019
Very fun in the sun, inclusive of sailing , snorkeling, drink and beautiful sunset. Definitely recommend for couples, friends and families ( not ideal for small children ) as much indulgence in drink and boat can be limited in space. Food is pretty okay especially after a day snorkeling when you’re hungry. (BBQ chicken, beans, rice, fruits, variety of chips, and maybe cookies?) all types of drinks were unlimited. The sunset was gorgeous and we (my adult kids and their significant others) all really enjoyed the day. Would definitely recommend and do this activity again.

Guanacaste Adventure

Zipline Canopy Tour from Guanacaste | Dec 2019
This was the perfect adventure for our short trip to Guancaste. The team made this experience so fun, and the jungle was amazingly beautiful. We shared a lot of laughs and felt like we got to see the beauty of Costa Rica up close. I highly recommend booking with this team.

My oldest son did the Extreme Zipline and the rest of us went on the regular Zipline. My wife is afraid of heights but she managed 9 of the 11 with the help of the guides. Nice fun day!

ATV Tour from Guanacaste | Mar 2019
Favian was a great guide and gave us a choice of where we wanted to ride. We saw a variety of different terrain including riding through rivers, which was super fun. Ended up being a private tour with just me and my boyfriend. Worth every penny. Highly recommend!

Sloths, Frogs, Monkeys!! with Waterfall Hike and Corobici River Safari Float | Dec 2018
Rene and Cevi were wonderful tour guides. Super informative and very generous. Saw monkeys, lizards, crocodiles and many bird species on the raft. Not the time of year for sloths which is why I got this but it was still great nonetheless. The waterfall was breathtakingly awesome.

Nice boat & pleasant outing

Guanacaste Snorkel and Sunset Cruise | Nov 2018
Snorkeling was good. Food was tasty, but not in great abundance. Boat and crew were very nice. We had a small group of 13, so was comfortable. If the tour was full at 75 people, it would have been pure hell. I don't know how, but try to get on a tour not over crowded, perhaps stick to weekdays.
