Full day tour that started with amazing coffee and ended with a spectacular waterfall. Our guide and driver were great. Highly recommend this tour.
A full day. The host was both a great driver and guide. In spite of the rainy weather, the sights were breathtaking, and the meals wonderful. Word of caution, this includes some hikes that, while short, are rather strenuous, including climbing up and down many steps in the gorge to view the waterfalls. I'm a senior, and may have been the oldest person on the bus. With a little huffing and puffing I kept up, and it was well worth it. Only 1 complaint, we were picked up about 45 minutes late. Given the inclement weather, had us wondering if the trip had been canceled.
Breathtaking and life changing, and that is not hyperbole. We were blessed with a clear day with no cloud cover. I understand those can be few and far between, so bear that in mind when choosing this package. The volcano and the lagoon are marvels of nature and are worth the hike at multithousand meter altitude. Be warned that the air is thin. My lungs were burning, and I am relatively fit. The view, however, was worth the ever so slight pain.
The trip to Poas alone would have made this package worthwhile, but the Doka tour and La Paz waterfalls were the perfect bookends. The animals at La Paz were beautiful, and I made friends with a Toucan. The meals were superb - not dried out cafeteria food that you'd expect with a package.
Our guide, Marco, was also just the best. He was witty and knowledgeable. He talked enough to be informative but not invasive on the bus ride. He took my hand, told me to close my eyes, and walked me gently to edge of the crater so I could appreciate the stunning view with anticipation. He went over and above.
I would give this package 10 stars if I could. Thank you very much for the very fun day.
For those who have trouble walking, be warned that I logged 6 miles and 33 flights climbed on this day. My calves felt it afterward. This trip isn't for everyone, but it's the BEST for those to whom it applies.
Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. They took very good care of us and helped us to make the most of our experience. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was an amazing experience showcasing all that Cost Rica has to offer. The day beings with breakfast in the Doka Coffee plantation followed by a tour of the coffee plantation and coffee production. The tour continues to the Poas Volcano and sulfur pool, we had a fantastic view as there was no cloud cover such brilliant sunshine. The trek through the cloud forest to the lagoon was awesome. The next stop is the nature park and waterfall gardens, where you enjoy a buffet lunch overlooking the rain forest. After lunch you can visit aviary with an amazing display of exotic birds, the humming bird garden, the butterfly observatory and jungle cats. The final part of the tour is trek through the waterfall gardens and rain forest this is a truly amazing Costa Rica experience.
It was an amazing 3 tour combined together. It was very clear sky and warm day so seeing Volcano was very easy. Our tour guide Jorge is awesome and very knowleadable. And Our driver Coto was super safe all day. Thank you so much again for a fun day....
I booked this trip for my first day in Costa Rica before joining my weeklong tour. It was a great day and a wonderful introduction to the rich ecosystems of Costa Rica. Though it was too cloudy to see the crater of the volcano , the hike was nice. The coffee plantation tour and breakfast were very good. Coffee production is such an important part of the culture and economy. The La Paz butterfly gardens, nature preserve and waterfalls were the highlight of a very good day. Absolutely beautiful and very interesting. The food for both breakfast and lunch was good, the guide was good and fellow travelers were friendly. Highly recommend.
This was a great experience! Everything about it was well run and fun. Recommend.
Awesome tour! Very enjoyable. The Doka Coffee farm was very interesting, so much fun to see the entire process of coffee making and to actually pluck and taste the beautiful red ripe coffee berries. Breakfast was delicious although basic. The drive to Poas volcano was scenic but unfortunately we couldn't see the crater. It was all covered in thick fog and despite waiting for 30 minutes as other mentioned it didn't clear up. We still enjoyed the short walk up to the viewing area. Lunch at La Paz lodge was also delicious. The grounds and all the observatories are fantastic. Waterfalls are spectacular, it is a bit of walk but everything is paved and didn't quite feel like a hike. We enjoyed all the beautiful views despite it being a rainy day, my only regret is that everything we saw at La Paz other than waterfalls had been set up. The animals were in cages it was like visiting a zoo, and the beautiful landscaping all along the private property had been designed to be there. It was all beautiful and native to the area but had been planted there.
WAterfalls were the highlight of. A very enjoyable day.
