Absolutely Amazing Experience! Our family of 4 ('kids' age 23 and 17) set upon our eco-adventure in Costa Rica with this one-of-a-kind exerience in the shadow of Arenal Lake. Our young guides were fantastic, knowledgeable and fun! As it was low-season, we had the added benefit of a PRIVATE tour for our family which made this an even more enjoyable... More

If you've never been canyoneering, you have to try it! Repelling, ziplining, trekking through waist high rushing water. So much fun. Jason and our other guides were awesome. Super friendly and knowledgeable of the area and they were having as much fun with it as we were. After the 3-4 tour we were treated back at the base with fresh... More

Felipe Chancon, with Get to Costa Rica, was highly recommended to us by friends. He couldn't have been more wonderful. He was our guide, and by the end of our 12 day trip, felt like one of the family. He met us at the airport and stayed with us everywhere. He booked us with fantastic "moderate" lodging and tours of... More

We went Canyoneering with them, which is rapelling down water falls and a zip line adventure. I took my wife and 2 daughters and these guys were great. I am afraid of heights and they helped me the whole way. Wow just sums it all up. All the guides were helpful, and enthusiastic and spoke English really well. I would... More

My husband and I went on our honeymoon and was suggested this company for there lower rates and friendliness. we were the only two on the tour. We had a great time. They were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. When we visit again we will definitly go rappelling with them again.

We went on two tours with Sunset. The first was to Rio Celeste. The guides (one of whom we later found out didn't actually work for the company, strangely) were knowledgeable about the area. I went with my sister, and our only complaint was they were perhaps a little too friendly in their joking. On our second tour around Arenal... More

We went "canyoneering" in the rain forest near Arenal, which we didn't know much about until the guide explained we would be rapelling on ropes down into a canyon through some waterfalls. We just thought we would be hiking around a canyon! It turned out to be a lot of fun, even though it was scary sometimes, especially going down... More

Our travel agency had hired this company for our hike in Arenal park. Our tour guide was Jason and he was very well informed and spoke good english. He had a good knowledge of the area. Since we had not planned anything for the next day, we took his suggestion and went along with the safari ride in the river.... More

This tour was amazing! We canyoneered with our 9 and 13 year old kids. The canyoneering was safe, exciting, thrilling, and well organized. It concluded with a terrific lunch. Our guides were well trained and professional. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR!!!!!
