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.

We toured this coffee farm through Explora Ya. A group of four of us went to this small Coffee Farm and were given a very detailed tour. The story of the owner is pretty amazing and how he built up his farm and even though he is not one of the large Fincas, one of his coffees sell for $50... More

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.

We hiked the White Rock Trail with our guide, Williams. It is a half day, non-strenuous hike with many waterfalls and quaint bridges. You can easily do this hike without a guide and pay the $3 entrance fee, but without a guide, your chances of seeing the elusive quetzal and seeing all that this trail has to offer are diminished....

Booked this experience through Explora Ya. Small farm. Everything made from scratch which was interesting to see. Israel was a great tour guide and taught a lot about the process. Good coffee too. Bought 2 bags. They also ship to the US for a bit more.

Our guide Israel thought us a lot about the small coffee plantage Don Alfredo, in a very fun way. We walked through the plantage and saw the whole proces, from growing the beans on the trees untill the roasting (and tasting!). Delicious!
