        Arenal Observatory - Stunning.
        Lovely place to stay, at the foot of Arenal. We stayed for 2 day, but it was cloudy and rainy...never saw the top of the Volcano, but the guided morning walk, made up for it. A lot more than just the Volcano and we really enjoyed our stay.

        Pura Vida Mae!!!
        We did the full day tour with Jason and I wish I could give it 6 stars! Jason speaks English very well, makes the whole experience so much fun with lots of laughs, and is incredibly knowledgeable! He surprised us with some excursions too that we didn't know were included and kept everyone entertained. Highly recommend asking for him and doing this tour with him! We are now friends on social media and I hope to keep in touch as he didn't just become my guide, but also my friend!! Pura Vida Mae!!!

        I had a really good time! Our tour guide Chris was excellent and spoke great english. Driver was funny and good. We spent the whole day hiking through the tropical rain forest, got good views of the volcano, many animals and plants, and finished at the hot springs. Pura vida!

      I wasn't going to write a review, but I noticed all the reviews were from around 2-3 years ago. First off, while booking the tour, the company confirmed that they could pick us up from our hotel, which is about 20 minutes from town. I verified if the distance was ok the day before, and they said yes. On the morning of the tour, they texted me that they could not pick us up because we were too far away. We had to scramble to find a taxi and paid more money to make it to a meeting point in town. They did offer to refund the tour if we couldn't make it in time.

      Our first stop was the La Fortuna Waterfall; no complaints here, but since multiple of their groups were coming in simultaneously, it seemed like a safety hazard. I couldn't get out of the water when I wanted to as people were crowding around the rocks.

      The next stop was the Volcano Hike, which was pretty uneventful; it was a 2-mile hike to a spot where the Arenal Volcano can be viewed from a distance. The tour guides were friendly but decided to merge our group with another one, even though we specifically booked this tour due to the smaller group size. Seeing animals in the forest was hit or miss, but I don't think having a huge group walking through the trail helped. Afterward, they provided lunch which was standard but it was not at an "Organic Farm" as STATED in the description.

      The last stop was the "hot spring," but we arrived at a local waterway where the water was lukewarm at best and filled with jagged rocks (I would advise investing in a pair of water shoes). The water's depth reached 10 inches at best and was far from relaxing.

      Afterward, I thought we were going to a hanging bridge, as STATED in the tour description, but instead, the tour guides said that was the last stop and began dropping us off.

      The tour guides were all friendly, but overall, I felt deceived by the advertising and do not believe it was worth the price.

      We booked this Full Day Volcano excursion thru our hostel in La Fortuna and were very impressed. Our tour guide Jason did a great job leading the tour and was very knowledgeable. We began by doing a nature walk at the Arenal Observatory where we saw lots of wild life and learned about the vegetation. This walk also included a waterfall. Then we were shuttled to a private organic farm that served us delicious Casados. After lunch, Jason demonstrated how to manually press sugar cane to enjoy with a sample of the local distilled liquor. The tour group was then shuttled to the base of Arenal Volcano where we hiked for a few miles to get a up and close view of the volcano. Lastly, we stopped at a local hot springs river to soak our legs. It was a fantastic all day tour and great value!
