Spectacular views, amazing history.
Arenal is a major stop for a reason. Breathtaking and dramatic it’s hard not to notice. Taking the hike and seeing it all up close is a must. Doing it with a guide is the only way to get the full experience. Edson from Callidryas tours is the person you want with you on that mountain! :) he’s outstanding. Highest recommendation. Thanks for such a great day, sloths in the morning, Arenal in the afternoon. When you come e to Fortuna definitely ask for Edson form Callidryas tours if you want the best possible experience.

Gorgeous hike with such a knowledgeable guide
Mar 2021
Oscar absolutely blew us away with his knowledge of Arenal's geology and ecology. He was fascinating and kind, filled with stories and able to answer every one of our many questions in depth. At one point he even stopped along the path to draw a diagram of the volcano and its history for us! Oscar is a master at spotting fascinating birds amidst the vegetation, and brought along a telescope so we could see everything up close. He also took the most amazing photos for us. I wish we had time to take another tour with Callidryas, but we will definitely be back!

Terrific tour with a knowledgeable guide

Toured with Gerald. He was a fountain of information about the volcano and the formation of the lava flow we were hiking on. We learned all about the geology of the area, as well as the wildlife. He made what could have been some dry facts come alive. This is a must do in the Arenal area!

Excellent tour of volcano (tip your guide/driver)
We did the early morning lava tour with Pedro. He was extremely knowledgeable and experienced - answering even some of the most obscure questions (both in French and English). Sure, you can do that walk on your own and you’ll save money. But it’s much better with a guide especially one that really orients you to a place.

In Costa Rica, tip your guide (and driver). It’s how it’s done here - particularly for outstanding work.

A great hike with an amazing company!! Thanks Gerald!
Jul 2018 • Friends
My daughter and I took this hike, and we couldn't have been in better hands!! Gerald was truly amazing - he made sure we saw lots of wildlife and learned about the geology of the area. My daughter is in much better shape than I am, but Gerald took pains to make sure that I was safe and comfortable during the hike. We had such an amazing time that later in the trip when one of our tours (with a different company) was rained out, we contacted Callidryas to book it with them and Gerald, and we loved that tour as well. He is fantastic!!
