Our tour guide Maurisio was excellent. He had amazing knowledge of the rainforest, plants, habitats etc. The reason I am not giving 5 is because if the destination itself. I was not terribly impressed by the volcano, considering the hike that was involved

Had the best day with our tourguide Omar and visited 4 of the mayor things to do in La Fortuna in one day. There are a few good hikes in there and de view from the volcano and de waterfall are absolutely amazing! A girl in her group celebrated her birthday that day and the touroperater brought a cake for her that we shared in the hotsprings. Great day!
Also if you book this tour through a hostel instead of TripAdvisor you will pay way more.

Eric was awesome and down to earth. Everything was so well organized. Loved every minute. You endure a lot of walking so bring water and thin towel.

Wybe, the gentleman that heads up Red Lava Tours, really helped us out. We were looking for things to do during our 72 hour stay in La Fortuna and thank God we ran into him at his shop by the square.
He was very knowledgeable about the area and the different tours. He speaks multiple languages, including very good English.
But most importantly, he was there for us when we needed him. You see, our hotel was going to charge us for an extra night, because our tour went longer than expected because of a bigger group. Wybe called our hotel to explain the situation. And then, without us asking, he left his wife to come meet us at the end of the tour. He personally drove us back to our hotel in town, ensuring we wouldn’t be charged an extra $100.
For anyone reading this, more than likely, nothing will go wrong on your tour. But if something does, you can count on Wybe and Red Lava Tours to be there for you.
(He did not ask for this review, but I felt compelled to let people know about this company.)
He is the definition of Pure Vida!

Wonderful experience. Pick up was on time and everything went smooth. The tour takes you the back way down to the waterfall and is a stone slab staircase down hill trek. Bring good traction water shoes or sneakers. Once you’re at the waterfall you will need to cross waste deep water to get to the other side so make sure you wear a bathing suit. We got to spend some time swimming around the area but if you want to get up and close you will need those water shoes since there are a lot of rocks. Afterwords we trekked back up the same way and walked to a Maleku tribe hut where we were welcomed by the husband and wife that live there. Once done we took a van back down to the restaurant to have a nice meal with the group. After lunch, the van took us to the entrance of the Arenal volcano park where we took a more traditional dirt trail up to a viewing point. It was a rainy day so we didn’t get to see the volcano peak in all its glory but the hike was still nice. After the hike we got to hang out at a hot spring back in town for a bit. Enjoyed some Cacique rum and soda with the group before heading back to the hotel. Easy going and a good physical day. Would definitely recommend it since you get to do a lot in one day.

10/10!!! I can’t recommend this tour enough! Our day (which is as about 11 hours, time frame given is accurate) started with a pick-up (transport all included in price) which was easy to find and communicated about with the guide, Antony/Toni. Our first stop was a beautiful floral and butterfly garden where we saw native frogs as well. We then went to the gorgeous waterfall which was a decent but not too hard hike. Along the way we would stop to spot cool plants or animals in which Toni seemed to know all about (if you pointed to it, he knew it! Super knowledgeable). We also passed a cool bridge going over a river that our guide took photos on. The waterfall was still pretty strong for late November! We had an hour to jump in (water shoes here optional, half of the people wore water shoes and half were barefoot; definitely would want towel to dry off and change of clothes if your clothes are not swimsuit/dry-fit material). After we went back up the trail, we went to a nice lunch in the town with delicious local food (covered in price). Then we hiked to volcano which was only partly covered by clouds (it normally is unless it’s raining), and spotted animals along the way as well. Our guide brought an awesome scope to view the animals up close and videoed those as well. Last stop was the hot spring to enjoy the spring and an alcoholic beverage should we have liked. This day was so so so many good things hence the long paragraph but I just want to get across how worth it it was! Our guide was incredible and we saw and did so much in just 11 hours. Highly recommend, everything was spectacular and so beautiful. Pura vida!

Amazing tour. Eric and Isaac were our tour guides. The guys were super knowledgeable and kept the group engaged.

The morning hike to the waterfall and swimming hole was well worth the hike. Lunch was delicious and the afternoon hike up to the volcano was beautiful.

The coffee and snacks after the hikes hit the spot, and our final stop at the thermal pools wrapped up a great day.

Would highly recommend!
