The staff were amazing. Always there to keep a drink in hand! The cruise itself was just the right amount of time. Two major issues though. First, was the fact that the toilet. We were told about this just before boarding. Second, they ran out of food at the end. We were kind of expecting snacks throughout there were chips/salsa and overall plenty of food. I think everyone got a fair amount of food but they did run out after lunch.
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide, El, was the coolest and most chill dude i met on my trip and maybe even ever. The amount of knowledge he has about Costa Rica and the countries around were astounding. He taught me some spanish and helped me plan my further trip, and i am so grateful for that. As for the tour, it couldnt have been better! First of all i had missed the message about the meeting point, and i thought the shuttle would pick us up. After waiting for about 20 min i tried calling them, but in the moment i did the shuttle was in front of me and El had come just to pick us up because as he sad: No one gets left behind in Costa Rica!
You think you are just going on a zip lining trip with some hot springs, but in reality you get a bunch of cultural insights. They tell you about the coffee culture in Costa Rica, show you how its made and even let you taste the coffee and handmade costa rican snacks. The Ziplining was amazing, just truly breathtaking. I have never tried anything so fun, scary and beautiful at the same time. The only thing i can say is that the horseback ride should've been longer, but maybe thats just because i love horses.. Wish i could do it again and can definitely recommend it to EVERYONE!
From start to finish this tour was fantastic! The tour guide was a few minutes early for our pick up at our hotel, which I really appreciate. From the beginning of the trip Eugenio, our tour guide for the day, was very informative and knowledgeable about the areas we traveled through and about Costa Rica in general. The trip to Palo Verde National Park was a bit of a long drive, but it was great to see the beautiful countryside and learn about the culture, history, and agriculture of the area. We had a short stop before the riverboat trip for a bathroom break, coffee, juice, and snacks in the small town of Ortega. From there it was only a short trip to the river. Our boat captain, Felix, was welcoming and skilled at maneuvering the boat in the river - not easy with such a strong current that day, but we always felt safe with no worries! Both our tour guide Eugenio and captain Felix were very skilled at spotting all the wildlife along the rivers edge. We saw so many different types of birds - herons, egrets. storks, owls, even a nest with baby herons poking their heads out for us to see. We also were lucky enough to see 2 crocodiles! One came within a few feet of our boat. It was magnificent. Felt completely safe the whole time. We saw several monkeys, iguanas, and very colorful insects. The riverboat experience was overall amazing. The scenery was beautiful, the experience was unforgettable. After the riverboat tour we headed back to Ortega for an authentic Costa Rican meal. The restaurant hosts were gracious.This meal was delicious and plentiful - rice, beans, choice of fish, chicken or beef, fried plantains, salad, homemade corn tortillas, fried cheese, and ice cream for desert. It was a great tour and well worth the cost. As advertised, the whole tour took about 6 hours and we were dropped back off at our hotel. I'll never forget this trip! It was amazing.
Only so-so. While the expectation was to see more of the monkey population, we ran the river for about 45 minutes and saw something in the distance. Our guide was good but due to the low monkey turnout he really didn't have much choice.
Friendliest staff that caters your every need! They were ready to serve drinks the moment we got on the catamaran and made sure you always had one in your hand. Very funny staff that made the trip super enjoyable, took pictures for us and answered many questions we had about animals and scenery we saw. Great for couples and families. Hour ride out to a snorkeling cove watching dolphins on the way out. During snorkeling a staff member would dive down to retrieve starfish, puffer fish, sea cucumbers for you to view up close and even hold! We saw a variety of sea life. An hour or so later is lunch, chicken/fish wraps, delicious dip and chips, fresh fruit and cookies. Afterwards you start trip back while watching the sunset. Great music!
One of the best parts of my solo 30th birthday trip!
The crew is awesome. Friendly, helpful, and kept the drinks coming with whatever we wanted.
Snorkeling was fun! Not a lot of fish but we saw a baby octopus and puffer fish.
The views were amazing. Beautiful out on the water away from everything!
Great people. The boat fits A LOT without feeling crowded and we all had great conversation with new friends.
We were novices to all of these activities, but instruction was clear and we felt safe all the way through. Ziplining was thrilling, spectacular, and scenic. The tour concluded with an outstanding lunch. Our tour guide Eugene was great; he was very knowledgeable about local history and customs. 5 stars!
We had a wonderful experience on this tour! Rigo was our tour guide; he was exceptional! Though novices on ATVs, we felt very safe and comfortable the whole time. We explored many beaches near Tamarindo and Brasilito, and saw monkeys in the wild. Ask for a p.m. tour with spectacular sunset ending!
This tour was great! Our tour guide Eliel was awesome. He knew some much about about Costa Rica and you can tell he really loved his job and loved interacting with new people. We saw so many animals on our cruise including a school of playful monkeys and a baby crocodile. And just when we thought the tour couldn't get any better, we had lunch. The food was amazing. One of the best meals we had in Costa Rica. I would highly recommend this tour.
I had an amazing time on this tour !! My boyfriend and enjoyed all of the activities as well as the great food !! I would recommend this tour to people of all ages !
