This was a great experience from start to finish. Transportation was on time, tours and people were exceptional, and the lunch was the best meal we had in Costa Rica. Everyone was so nice and friendly but you don’t feel like just another tourist dollar. Guides were funny and very personable plus spoke very good English which was great for a gringo with limited Spanish. They seem to love what they do, are proud to show off their country, and do a great job making you feel welcome and appreciated. Could not see anyone doing it better and could not recommend Rainforest Explorers more.

I booked this trip on my husband’s 50th birthday - so the pressure was on! And it could not have been more fabulous. The itinerary is absolutely excellent. The perfect combination of wildlife watching, relaxation and hiking all the while enjoying the stunning natural environments. Ileana went out of her way to make the day extra special, with a wonderful birthday cake and even sourcing some local beer. The lunch and snacks that are included are all freshly prepared and delicious. Our guide, Carlos was encyclopaedic in his knowledge. He was funny and kind too and we were even stopped by another guide on the volcano hike to be told he was the best around. We agree! We saw lots of wildlife, learnt absolutely loads and had a truly fabulous day. I couldn’t recommend this trip with Rainforest Explorers highly enough.

We spent two days with Rain Forest Explorers on our trip to Costa Rica. We did the River Safari Float, La Fortuna Waterfall, Volcano Hike, Hanging Bridges, and Chocolate Tour. Rainforest Explorers is the best tour company in Costa Rica. All interactions with Rain Forest Explorers were superb. Yuliana assisted me with booking and payments, she also provided some good information regarding the tours. All four of our guides (Fran, Mau, Mario, and Edgardo) were knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. They handled everything for us, everything was effortless from when we arrived at the van. I learned so much from all of them on our trip to Costa Rica. Also, I just felt so relaxed, they didn't rush us, they allowed us to set our own pace, and they made sure we had the best time in Costa Rica. Lunch... Lunch at the family farm was the best meals we had in Costa Rica. You can tell these people are passionate about what they do and they desire to share it with you. Seriously, they made our trip spectacular. Our best days in Costa Rica were spent with Rain Forest Explorers!

If you want an authentic, informative, and fun excursion, go with Rainforest Explorers. We did two days with them…chocolate tour, hanging bridges, safari raft trip, water fall, and volcano hike. All of these were amazing. Our guides Michael and David were awesome! We learned a ton AND had so much fun!! Between activities we were treated with fresh fruit grown from the family farm and a delicious lunch prepared and eaten there as well. I felt like I was visiting relatives in Costa Rica from the hospitality, kindness, and true Costa Rican food. I would use Rainforest Explorers, a family business, again and again. Thank you to Edgardo for our informative chocolate tour and for keeping us safe driving all over the countryside. We enjoyed meeting everyone and were truly sad to say goodbye. Thank you Rainforest Explorers for a trip of a life time!!! Susan and Julia

We had a great experience with Bryan as our guide. We felt very safe and he made sure that we could see all the animals around. He was funny and explained the procedures very well before heading out. We promised we’d come back and try the Class IV rapids with him next time. The fruit break was very nice, with lots of fresh watermelon and pineapple for everyone. The meal was buffet-style in the middle of the jungle. I highly recommend this tour and make sure to ask for Bryan!

Had an amazing day with this tour company. Spent the day with Hansel who took all the time we wanted and needed to see everything. Went on the safari raft tour, waterfall, and Arenal volcano hike. He was so good at spotting wildlife and knowledgeable about volcanoes. Also the plants and flowers. So enjoyable and friendly!!! Wonderful tour day!!

We had an amazing time on this tour. Our guide Carlos was extremely good at finding wildlife. We saw so many toucans, howler monkeys, whitefaced monkeys, and even sloths. Enough time was allowed for each experience including snacktime and lunch at two amazing out-of-the-way restaurants. Would highly recommend.

Our tour was led by Bernardo who was probably just the best you could ask for
Rafting: we saw so many different animals and never would have without Bernardo. River Otter, crocodile, white faced capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, snake birds, more birds and the history of the river/plants lining the river.
Ranch stop: we had a light snack of plantains, cheese, & pan de elote. With some history of farm life.
La Fortuna waterfalls: LOTS AND LOTS OF STAIRS. It was beautiful and for the daring you can take a plunge into the river.
Lunch: we were able to choose between the main proteins and veg option. It was a nice opportunity to get to know the other travelers.
Arenal hike: we learned about the history of the volcano and the different plant and wild facts.
I forgot to mention the little stops along the way when our awesome driver Mainor or guide Bernard found an animal on the side of the road: sloths, toucans, and some other birds.

We did the 3-in-1 Safari Float, La Fortuna Waterfall, and Arenal Volcano Hike with Ansel (guide) and Mainor (driver). It was a great experience. We saw so much wildlife on the float - sloth, howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, jesus lizards, kingfishers, egrets, owls, and more. Maybe the highlight of our trip. The waterfall was beautiful, though the climb back up was tiring. The vocano hike was very relaxing. Our guide, Ansel, was outstanding - very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions patiently and fully, and a good sense of humor. Mainor was quiet, but kept us safe on the road. Lunch was served by the owners at their rancho, and it was delicious and filling. Outstanding, highly recommended!

A wonderful and exciting day. Everyone at Rain Forest Explorers is so nice and so accommodating. Hansel was THE BEST tour guide, very knowledgeable and passionate about Costa Rica. He focused on our seeing and learning all about Costa Rican nature and making sure our experience the very best it could be. (Love that he steered our tour group around a trail of leaf cutter ants so we could learn about them, not step on them or deter them from their mission.) This tour was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. I'd highly recommend Rain Forest Explorers!!
