The reviews stand for themselves, and our experience was no different from these other 5 star reviews. , Rainier and Manuel was our captain- if you have kids, you might want to ask for this amazing duo. Genuinely, hands down one of the best boat tours I've been on. What

Saw capuchins, a crocodile, howler monkeys....but a very quick trip —-15 minutes—because the boat captain got a call from the guy at the river that others wanted to go on the tour. The same guy upped the charge from $20 to $25 when we checked in. All in all this was our most

Response from Everlopez53, General Manager at Palo Verde Wildlife Tour from Tamarindo
Responded 7 Mar 2020
First I want to mention that this comment was made to Palo Verde National Park and not for our company. We have contacted the client by sending a message if they had any proof or document that reflected that they did the tour with us and this was their response: Guest reponse: We just had dinner with friends who live in San Jose. Alberto told us we did the wrong tour —- we didn’t know about the birding tours and went all the way to the Palo verde national park. We couldn’t make reservations —- it was VERY primitive. Is this you? Pininos adventures response: Not, you did a tour with someone else and not with us, a lot of companies they do this trip and they call it in different names, so when some one like to book this trip we required in advance the payment, we always pick up people at hotel and we always send a tour guide with the customer. we do appreciate if you delete this review please and if you need any help to dont hesitate in contact me for further question Guest Response: Oh, I'm sorry ... I thought I was reviewing the park, not a specific trip. The park boat trip is awful !! Due to this response, another message was sent indicating that please delete this comment from our profile but the client did not answer us again. WE HAVE REPORTED THIS CASE TO TRIP ADVISOR AND GUESS WHAT THEIR ANSWER? We are very sorry to hear about the situation you have had with this guest. However, we are not in a position to make judgments about the character or intentions of the collaborators. Travelers' opinions are individual, highly subjective opinions that are not endorsed or verified by TripAdvisor.   While we have determined that the opinion you just reported complies with our guidelines, we strongly recommend that you respond to the opinion using our Management Response tool. WE WANT TO INDICATE THAT AT ANY TIME THIS CUSTOMER DO NOT MADE THE TOUR WITH US IT IS SHAMEFUL, THAT IN TRIP ADVISOR IT IS NOT HELPFUL, IF WE COULD CHOOSE ANOTHER SITE OF BETTER ATTENTION, I WOULD NOT CHOOSE MORE TRIP ADVISOR, WE SENT THEM CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE OF THE CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN THE CLIENT AND US, EVEN SO TRIP ADVISOR COULD NOT DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT IT. please do not fool yourself with this comment, check the positive comments of this tour and you will see that it is excellent

This is a great way to see the wildlife (birds, croc's iguana's, lizards, monkeys, bats) and learn a lot about the area, the fauna, the history (natural, social and political), from very excellent and informed guides! The river tour is about two hours, then a wonderful lunch of
