“DO THE WATERFALL RAPPELLING”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Their best tour by far. It was very safe with a guide watching your descent from the top and another guide controlling your position from the bottom. They were all really funny and knowledgeable. The food prepared for us on the farm was delicious as well. The waterfalls are beautiful, with great hikes, jumps, and ziplining. Sunset tours accommodated our requests. We only had one day in Arenal, and they helped us squeeze in as many activities as possible in our 24 hours there and even got us special transportation to make our flight in time. The volcano hike was a little short and too easy for my liking, but the waterfall rappelling was a hit - my favorite tour.

“Rappelling highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The waterfall rappelling tour was awesome! The places is beautiful and the activities are very well designed. The guides were very nice and very concerned with everyone's safety and comfort. Sunset Tours even arranged personal transportation for my companion and me so we could make our flight back to San Jose that same day. The only reason I gave it four stars is because we also did a volcano hike, which I thought was slightly overpriced and not as interesting as other tours we had taken. Overall, everyone at sunset tours is very nice and helpful though!

If you like caving you must check out this tour. Our guide David was great and we all had a blast. By far the best company and one of the best things we did in La Fortuna :) PURA VIDA

“Awesome hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Went with David our guide, he was amazing and very knowledgeable with the sorroundings in the rainforest. Taught us a lot about the history of Volcano Arenal and how the hot springs were formed from it.

P.S. Thanks for taking a picture of my hiking shoes!!

“Great hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We selected an early time. So we were the only ones on the tour and received personal attention. Highly recommend a guide.
