I was fortunate to get this tour in before everything started to get shut down due to coronavirus. Im very happy I ended up doing this tour and it ended up being probably my best day in Costa Rica. Carlos was a great guide, and really enjoyed meeting my friends Christelle and

The tour consisted of two parts. 1. A hike to the foot of the vulcano. 2. A visit to some hot springs. The day started in a confused way and I got the feeling that they were a bit disorganized. However, after some delay we were off on our hike. The guide, Eric, seemed

Responded 4 Jan 2020
Hi Carl, Sorry that the departure of the tour felt a bit chaotic. It is peak season right now and we have many groups going. There are over 300 hotels and RBandB-s in La Fortuna and pick ups can get a bit hectic. Since I was the one that sold you the tour I can be quite certain that I explained you about the hotsprings. Its a small resort at the foot of the volcano and we are happy to add it to the tour just raising the price of the tour by a fraction. We used to go to the river but the Costa Rican Tourist Board has prohibited this because of what they thought were safety issues. The Termo Arenal resort we visit, gives us a fun, comfortable, save and clean (no idea why you though it wasn´t) way of ending our day of hiking. No doubt there are fancier options like: Baldi (add´s $45 to the price), Eco Termales (+$50) Tabacon (+$75) which we can all help sell and organize, but for many people this is to much of an expense.
