    Fun, informative and action packed! Erica was our tour guide and was extremely knowledgeable about all areas we visited and was great and relaying the history of the area. She was so friendly and helpful. She made the whole experience. We say howler monkies, tarantulas, pit vipers, poisonous frogs and more! Up close and personal with beautiful La Fortuna! Highly recommend.

    This experience was so much fun! Carlos and Marcos were great tour guides. They were super informative and entertaining, and kind people overall. The tour guides also provided local snacks. The tour was packed with unique adventures and a really good workout getting to the waterfall, and volcano.

    Juan was our guide and took us on a lovely scenic tour. He has so much knowledge to share and has a very keen for spotting wildlife. We were able to come face to face with a beautiful coati and sloth. The food along the way is great. And of course the sights in Costa Rica are breath taking. 10/10

    The tour was great. Our guide was very friendly and informative. The coffee and chololate were unlike anything we tried we before. And as a nice bonus, we got a sugercane tasting as well. Definitely recommended!

    The Pure Trek waterfall rappelling was incredible experience! I'll be honest, I was pretty nervous about it since I don't love heights. But I felt safe and absolutely LOVED the experience. This was the highlight of the trip for our teens (14 & 17). The first waterfall is 180 feet high - and I was impressed that people of all ages and fitness levels did it with smiles on their faces.

    The staff were friendly and professional. I enjoyed being able to buy photos afterwards - these will make our family holiday cards! The waterfalls were beautiful. This was one of the most unique travel experiences I've had - I'm so glad we went!

    The Arenal Mundo Aventura Big AMA canopy tour (with 12 zip lines) was one of the HIGHLIGHTS of our trip to Costa Rica. We were extremely nervous leading up to it, but this tour includes 4 “practice” zip lines. Don’t get me wrong, they are high up and fast, too, but they are short and allow you to get comfortable with how to position yourself and break. Then, you get to #5 which is the 2nd longest and a total rush! On the course, we flew past two waterfalls, saw stunning panoramic views of la Fortuna from the distance, and felt extremely safe the whole time. The tour takes you to and from your hotel, and all was said and done in about three hours.
    During rainy season, we’d recommend booking the earlier tours, although we did the 1:30 tour and got very lucky it didn’t rain on us!

    A lot of fun! We did single rider. Trails are around volcano, through rainforest and muddy with some fun hill…everything you want in an ATV ride! Was our 17 year old daughter’s first time. She loved it! We even got a brief history lesson along the way.

    Mistico Park is a really nice park with paved trails and very sturdy hanging bridges that add to the viewpoints. I definitely recommend going with a guide because we would have missed every animal she pointed out, including vipers, motmot birds, monkeys, frogs, and tarantulas. Also, the guide’s telescope is super helpful. Highly recommend!

    This company employs extraordinarily knowledgeable guides and spotters. The spotters go out earlier in the day to locate the sloths so that they are able to point them out. Our guide utilized a Swarovski spotting scope and we were able to see minute details. Not only did we see the sloths, we saw howler monkeys and a multitude of glorious tropical birds. Photos taken during the tour on iPhone with guide’s spotting scope.

    What an experience this was! First and foremost our tour guide Carlos was absolutely terrific, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly!! Me and my wife had a blast thanks to him. He was able to identify and locate so many animals, including sloth, spider monkey, and all other sorts of wildlife. He was even nice enough to stop for a quick detour to a gift shop in which he quickly heard the voice of an animal in which we quickly made way too, and ended up spotting a beautiful toucan! The hike through the hanging bridges was fairly easy (at least for me, my wife says otherwise haha) with stunning views and the hike towards the arenal volcano was jaw dropping. The lunch that was prepared for us by the young ladies was absolutely delicious!!!! Salsa Verde/Tico sauce is my new go too sauce haha. And the coffee that was made using the traditional Costa Rican filter process with the light dessert was the cherry on top. Thank you ladies for a delicious and energising meal to finish the trip up before heading to the La Fortuna waterfall, which was a splash! Overall, from start to finish the tour was 5 stars and worth every penny, and definitely thanks to Carlos who made our experience an amazing and unforgettable memory! Pura Vida!

    We had the best day on our 4-1 tour with Canoa Aventura, and specifically our guide Abner!! (Shoutout to our driver, Antonio as well!). A few days before the tour, I realized I had booked the wrong one, and they were quick to respond and help me change it to the 4-1! We learned so much from our bilingual tour with Abner - about the volcano Arenal, Lago Arenal, the wildlife, plants and flowers. We loved the Volcano hike and visit to La Fortuna waterfall in the morning. The day’s events and logistics were smooth and the timing of the events was great. We had a fantastic pre-arranged lunch at pizzeria Cava - much needed heading into the rest of the activities! We continued onto the Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges tour - it was lightly raining and even storming a bit during our 2-hour walk through this beautiful park, but the views and flora / fauna were not to be missed, even in the rain. After this hike, we were dropped off at Baldi hot springs for 3 hours - a dinner included and access to their 25 pools. I think the hot springs you go to depends on the day, but we LOVED Baldi. We capped off a fabulous day with tropical drinks in a hot (104 degrees) hot spring swim-up bar. Then, Canoa Aventura picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel. Absolutely fantastic day!

    If you have more time in La Fortuna, you could do the half day tour and save the hanging bridges or hot springs for another day. It was a LOT to do in one day, but for us it was great. If you’re short on time, go for the 4-1 tour!!

    Minor was a gracious host. Incredibly knowledgeable and truly excited to share all the details of their organic family farm - flora and fauna. It’s not just chocolate tour but a huge variety of fruits that you learn about and most that you get to taste. Many things were ripe when we went: mango, papaya, pineapple, star fruit, oranges, mimbro, icey beverage of sugar cane juice that you press, raw chocolate, fresh pressed roasted pure chocolate, vanilla syrup, and coffee! I recommend trying the coconut rum and buying some for the remainder of your stay in Costa Rica. Lots of other things to purchase at the end. I can’t believe how inexpensive this tour was ($25) for all that you get out of it in two very full hours. And a 2-toed SLOTH on the property! Wow, Costa Rica is an amazing country.
