We were promptly picked up at our hotel. Our guide was Carlos and he did an excellent job. We had about a two hour ride in the van to the boat launch. Once wer were on the boat the tour lasted about 3 hours. The guides pointed out several birds, Howler Monkeys and also white faced monkeys. After the tour we stopped at a restaurant and had a delicious lunch of chicken and rice.

Our guide's name was Mai and she was so knowledgeable of everything and made sure we learned a bit about everything. She made frequent stops to explain the history and give people their time to rest. She was so sweet and genuine and her English was really good. Any questions we had, she had great answers. The trail itself was not a hard walk, just a few rocks to watch out far. beautiful views and lots of greenery to see.

This trip was excellent. Our driver picked up up at our hotel on time in a mini van with one other couple who were lovely. We then drove to a fabulous local restaurant for a local lunch and locally ground coffee. It was all very delicious. We then drove to the waterfall and proceeded down the 500 steps! Our legs felt like jelly when we arrived at the falls. After sitting a minute we climbed the rocks to get great photos of the falls. Then we went in the calmer waters down a bit from the falls. It was cold and refreshing! Beautiful place. It took us a long time to climb the steps back up with resting in between but our guide was patient and wonderful. His name was Billy. Our driver was great too, Victor. This tour was worth every penny.

This is a well organised tour, you do have a 2 hour drive to get here but it is worth it. For us an added bonus was that it was sunny something we haven’t seen much of so far. We saw quite a few different bird species and a couple that are hard to find elsewhere like the potoo and grebe. The guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. The only thing I would have changed would be the time of day, I would have loved to have been there earlier but that would have meant a 5 am pick up which I don’t suppose many would be keen on. All in all a great day with a very nice lunch.

We were supposed to go to Rio Celeste or see the blue water at the waterfall but on our way our guide, Julio, received a call from the office stating that due to heavy rains the prior day the water was not blue but mud. He offered the group an opportunity to change the tour to Cano Negro instead. The group agreed so off we went. We saw a ton of wildlife and the guides were outstanding at spotting things for us to see as well as explaining the history. While I was a little disappointed of not going to Rio Celeste to see the water, this was a fantastic tour. I appreciate the company looking out for the guest and trying to offer us the best opportunity for our trip. There was a $100 each difference in the tour cost but I guess this was better than hiking 3 miles in mud to see mud! Thanks Aventuras Arsenal for your professionalism and for our great guide Julio and drive Lily.
