We went out for a four hour tour to Diamante falls. Jody was our guide he was very knowledgeable and very personable, we all learned quite a bit about the trees and plants in the area. We also got to see San Luis falls,very spectacular. There were only two cans about the trip; first I thoughtcwe would get much closer... More

We are glad you enjoyed the tour. Jeudy is an excellent, very capable guide. I am not sure why you would think you could get closer to the Diamante waterfall? Especially, if you live in the area, you know it is simply not possible. We had a French Master Chef on a tour a few months ago. He had spent... More

Our family did the ATV tour to the Nauyaca Waterfall and it was great! We had a lot of fun speeding through the rainforest on our ATVs. They were easy to drive for adults but would be difficult for kids, as there are a lot of rocky hills to go up and down. The views from the hilltops were amazing.... More

At Diamante Verde Tours we take a lot of pride in our tours and when we receive a less than stellar review, I often comment. We do not include lunch for several reasons. One simply being that everyone does not want lunch and another is that many people now have special dietary needs which given our rural location, we can... More

Karl was our awesome tour guide for the day! And I highly recommend this ATV tour for anyone that visits the area. It was an amazing experience getting to see that part of Costa Rica in a different view point. You get up close to different waterfalls, see wildlife in their natural habitat, and stop and over look many spectacular... More

Karl took us on a great atv tour to see waterfalls near Dominical. One of the best experiences was stopping by a small shop to buy super fresh organic coffee from a local farmer. Karl's obviously fantastic relationship with his neighbors made this experience even more enjoyable. The only complaint I had was we didn't see a sloth, but Karl... More

Hiking and then rappelling through the Diamante River Canyon was the high point of a 10 day adventure vacation in Costa Rica. We hiked, rock-hopped, slid through small fun waterfalls, and when the rocks gave out, swam through short portions of the canyon river. I have played in canyons and canyon rivers before, but never in a deep deep spectacular... More

If you like cruises and guided excursions in the company of fellow Americans this sounds like a great idea. We didn't get to see the waterfall because we didn't reserve a time to over pay in dollars for a locale that should be a national park. I recommend everyone boycott this waterfall until public access is granted.

My husband and I came to Costa Rica for the first time and wanted to experience as much as we could on our short trip. This was one of the big highlights of our trip! Riding the quads was a lot of fun, the scenery was breathtaking and the waterfall was beautiful! What an adventure hiking up to it (optional... More

We have come to Costa Rica every year for the last 20, and this was definitely the best tour we've taken. Great equipment, guides, food, and everything else!

An ATV tour with Karl of Diamante Verde tours is a MUST if you're staying in or anywhere around Dominical. My husband and I took the basic tour with him and, honestly, our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to go with him AGAIN on another tour. Absolutely phenomenal. We saw amazing wildlife, flora, and fauna and... More
