          Great, safe first time Zip lining! Exhilarating!
          The staff was very friendly and communicated clearly. They were patient and made the adventure super fun! Juan kept us all engaged and entertained. Wonderful experience for my “maiden voyage”!

          Quite a experience
          The volcano was covered with clouds and it was raining constantly. But getting there was quite a challenge, a tropical storm hit the day before and our day of travel. We experienced three hours delays coming and going! But the tour guide and driver were great!

          Two pensioners do zip-lining!
          Souring down the seven zip lines over to top of the cloud forest was a fantastic experience. Attention to safety was good and the guides made it thoroughly enjoyable.

          Roberto to the rescue
          Our tour last Monday was thankfully rescued by Pablo & Roberto,we booked the trip via 3rd party that messed up. We eventually got underway & Roberto is a very well informed knowledgable man. He pointed out various things-on the way to Slothland. We were lucky enough to see 3 Sloths & 2 different types of frogs. Had lunch there which was very nice. Then onto a chocolate making Place. The guide was great showed us the entire process & we got to taste the end product. Finally we planted a tree. Amazing day . Very impressed with the professionalism of R & P our guide & driver Thank you so much

          Excellent day tour
          The day trip to Manuel Antonio National Park was worth the drive. Our guide Jose, knew a lot about nature and was proud of the beautiful Costa Rican countryside. Seeing unique wildlife, such as a sloth or white nose coati is amazing. After a walk through the park, you arrive at a pretty beach, and the water is warm and inviting. Breakfast and lunch were included, so it’s a good value. If you like nature and wildlife, you’ll enjoy this tour, it’s a fun way to see more of Costa Rica.

          Very Cool!
          It was so cool! Our tour guide David was knowledgeable and passionate. We saw snakes, frogs, a sleeping tucan, and other cool critters. There are multiple tours going at once so the different guides give each other a heads up of where cool things were so we could go see them too. But the tours are small and spread out so you have a lot of privacy and time to see things.

          Awesome tour
          Super staff and great night walk. Our tour agent (Charlie the Traveler) and his concierge (Travelux) told us the incorrect time to meet the tour bus. So, Arsenal oasis sent a separate vehicle to pick us up. The tour guide went out of his way to tell us about the things that we had missed for being late.

          Awesome time touring Arenal Volcano and Boldi Hot Springs today, thanks so much to Roy and the team at Willy Tours!
          This tour is great fun and very relaxing. We had an awesome time with Roy, our guide. The approach to Arenal and La Fortuna took us through a lot of scenic vistas. We had enough time to spend hours soaking and enjoying back rubs from the waterfalls in the Boldi Hot Springs. Lunch at the hotel was delicious and dinner on the ride home was also tasty. Highly recommend taking the Arenal Volcano & Boldi Hot Springs excursion from San Jose with Willy Tours.

          Exceptional experience, loved every minute!
          Selvatura Adventure park was one of our best experiences with amazing ziplines and interactive tours. We did the zipline experience which was exceptional for the sights and length of the lines as well as the Tarzan Swing and Superman Option for 1000m. Loved the butterfly garden tour which was immersive with our incredibly knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended!

          Amazing Night Tour with some Great Photography - Highly Recommended
          The night tour with Guide Juan was amazing. Pick from location was on time and Juan has an amazing knowledge of the wildlife in the area and his ability to spot them in the wild, at night when they are so well camouflaged was amazing. It was about 1 hour of walking in the forest at night but time just flew by as we spotted frogs, insects, snakes, spiders, birds various plants etc ... Defiantly recommend doing a night tour with Juan.

          Fantastic experience
          We opted for this adventure and it didn't disappoint. We were picked up at our hotel (not a private transfer and organised by Sky Adventure) and taken to the site. The ziplining is brilliant and I couldn't recommend it enough, even if you are scared of heights because they only last around 30-60 seconds each and the views are amazing as you are high above the trees. The landing is easy too, no hard stops and the staff are very helpful and professional at each platform. You can't take a bag, so no camera/ phone unless you take a jacket or trousers/shorts with a zip or bumbag type thing (we didn't have this and missed out on some phenomenal views, but that was our fault). There is a professional photographer but they wanted $42 dollars - I think they'd sell more if they were a little cheaper! We then moved on to the walk and were lucky enough to only have 5 people in our group. Our tour guide was brilliant - he knew so much and went out if his way to find animals for us. We were lucky enough to see a monkey and a sloth. If they have their camera equipment and manage to get better pictures they will share them with you. A wonderful tour that I would highly recommend! If you opt for the transfer, they run regularly and I believe you can hop on any one and they will drop you back at your hotel - we found it a bit confusing but the ladies at reception were great.

          Guanacaste unforgettable
          This tour was phenomenal in every way. Our guide Robert and all staff we met throughout the day were exceptionally courteous, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about the adventures. Waterfalls, hanging bridges, and a beautiful river raft ride await you…in addition to sloths, crocodiles, and many more amazing creatures and plant life. You will not be disappointed by the delicious authentic lunch either.

        We took our seven year old son on this trip and it was a fantastic experience. Every part of our interaction with the staff was professional, organized, safety conscious, and truly fun,

        Our guide, Alcides, knew the river extremely well, read and navigated the river perfectly, and kept us entertained and laughing between the rapids.
        On a white water trip, you expect white water and adrenaline but what you don’t expect is Costa Rican history, wildlife spotting (iguanas, frogs, and sloths), or a break for fresh fruit. Alcides even stopped the raft to carefully and quietly show us a baby sloth sleeping just three meters from us.

        Alcides, and the entire team, went above and beyond for us. The beautiful part about this white water rafting trip is that it was just one of many great experiences we had while in Costa Rica. The people of Costa Rica, were the best hosts, and the friendliest people I have ever encountered in the more than fifty countries I have visited.

        Diego was our guide and, while he said he was a newer guide on that particular river, he was very experienced in white water rafting and we had a fun time with him. My husband enjoyed it much more than me (I was pretty scared the first half), but the calmer part was really fun to find animals along the river!

        We had a blast and felt safe the entire time! I was a little anxious going with my kiddos, but our river raft guide, Romel,
        and Carlos, our bus guide were both AMAZING! So friendly and eager to share the beauty of Costa Rica!🙌
