I've had quite a few tours with Explora Ya, and every single one has lived up to my expectations. I especially recommend the horseback riding, mini canyons and the Jöguäta waterfall (where you can jump from the top of the waterfall). Oscar, and the rest of the team working at Explora Ya, are all super friendly, and helpful! I'm very... More

My wife and I toured Don Tito's plantation at Finca La Milagrosa this past July and have been reformed coffee drinkers ever since--especially considering the fact that we discarded our clothing and packed nothing but coffee to bring home. The tour via Explora Ya was exceptional, educational and informative. Williams our guide was remarkable, patiently explaining the ins and outs... More

We took the hot spring/river tour. David was an excellent guide; he's very knowledgeable and respects wildlife. The springs are on a farm that has some cool animals, including a rescued monkey. The springs themselves are little rock pools and they're really hot! It would be best if you have water shoes because the walk between the springs and the... More

Oscar, Israel, Williams, and all of the Explora Ya staff were completely fantastic. We did several tours over the course of two weeks (mini-canyons, White Rock hike, climbing, Boca Chica islands, surfing at Las Lajas, horseback riding, hot springs, waterfall swimming), and every tour was great. The guides go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and provide... More

We loved our trip to the hot springs! After a long week of studying abroad, we were able to relax in the hot water in a beautiful setting! We even got to hang out with the local family's monkey! The walk up to the hot spring and river was beautiful. We saw gorgeous landscapes and the family's pretty farm.

Even though it was raining it was a very good rustic tour. We learned a lot about the different types coffee beans. Each tree having different leaves. Our tour guide was funny and had enough knowledge to probably be a coffee grower. The time flew by and was never boring. I would recommend the tour.
