Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I did a couple of tours with Carrillo Tours. Each time, I was breathless at some point and most of all, learned something on Costa Rica I didn't know before. I had so much fun! All their guides are friendly and will be there to answer your questions, so go ahead and feel free to explore Costa Rica and its wonders without having to worry about organization. :D

One of my favorite experiences was a dolphin watching tour that I was able to do with my parents and brother. We did see dolphins that played around the boat before enjoying snorkeling with colorful fishes. I did the same tour a second time and saw turtles and whales as it was the right time of year (September)...

We went with William to see sea turtles laying eggs in camaronal. Willam was great. He knows a lot about sea turtles and you can see he really cares about them. He was happy to answer all of our questions and stayed longer at the beach so we can see more sea turtles and release newly hatched baby turtles. We really recommend this tour!

Fantastic evening, great guide and well worth the money. $45 per person. We got up close and personal with a number of sea turtles. We were able to watch a turtle come to shore, dig her ditch and lay her eggs. We then followed her back to the ocean. This was a great and once in a life time event. Highly recommended. Drinks and snacks provided.

My wife and I took two short excursions with guide Leonardo -- the kayak/snorkel tour to Isla Chora and the birding/walking tour in the forest near Carrillo Bay. We did the longer trip, the river tour in Palo Verde N.P., with guide Rodrigo. The guides were very knowledgeable, very friendly, and very helpful. They do a great job of sharing their love of their nearby natural wonders. They were punctual, the drivers were safe and courteous, and everything was as expected or better. On the river tour, the lunch afterward was an authentic and very special treat. You'll want binoculars and a camera for all three excursions.

Wonderful Sunset Cruise with Captain Walter and tour guide Marlon. A smaller boat at Playa Carrillo takes you to a larger fishing boat. We had the option of fishing and snorkeling but chose to enjoy the boat ride. Marlon gave a very informative talk about the local sea life and coastal terrain. Captain Walter did an excellent job piloting the boat. We brought along a bottle of champagne and two glasses and were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset. Transportation to/fro our hotel was included. Snacks of fresh melon (two types), bottled water and soda were provided. It was a memorable experience!

It is always a pleasure serving people with this type of energy, it was a sadness that the tour ended so fast.

We went kayaking on the river nearby, picked up in front off our hotel, drived for 30 minutes to the start place.
We saw a lot off birds the guide new all off their names.
When we arrived to the ocean we got something cold to drink and lovely fresh fruit.
When we got back to the bus we could hear the howling monkeys, we would very much like to see them but they were to far away!
On the way back to the hotel the guide found the monkeys and we got some nice pictures, we allso saw a crocodile close to a bridge before we were back.
Very nice people and very vice as well.

I booked two tours with Carrillo Tours: (1) turtle observation at Playa Camaronal and (2) ATV tour to four nearby beaches. For the turtle observation, we were lucky to find one turtle and view the entire egg laying process--digging a hole, laying the eggs, and hiding the nest. Another friend went with a different tour company and did not see any turtles! The ATV tour was a lot of fun. We came across some breathtaking views and scenes. We (unknowingly) planned out ATV tour during low tide. This bit of coincidental planning ended up working in our favor. Low tide exposes some tide pools and interesting rock formations that made for a fun adventure. Luis was a great guide, who gave us a real local experience.

We did a great kayak tour with our guide Luis, who explained everything we saw really well. He knew all birds we saw and he's generally a really nice guy!
We also did the turtle watching tour, where we saw baby turtles being let free into the ocean and we had the wonderful opportunity to see an adult turtle lay eggs! Our guide William was also a genuinely nice guy and explained everything really well.
Carrillo Tours is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :)
