          Awesome day
          We booked this online and then drove there is a car we rented for a few days. Easy commute from Occidental Papagayo on fairly easy roads to navigate. The guides were fun, knowledgeable and ensured we were safe. Everyone on the river looked out for each other, from this company and the other company sharing the space. Paying cash was a real perk. The experience was great, lunch was very satisfying and the facilities were completely adequate. I would do the Terminator better next time :) 2 words….do this

          Trip to the Volcano!
          Nice trip, with a very knowledgable guide. Our tour departured at 6:30, going straight to the volcano. Then we've been to the other places, including the Basilica, which was not on the list, but was a nice inclusion.

          This tour is jam-packed
          TOUR GUIDE Our guide was Gravin / Chu cho (I’m not sure if I spelt his name/nickname correctly). Some tours have a guide and a separate driver. Gravin was both and did such an amazing job. He was full of great knowledge and answered all questions. It was also really nice of him to introduce everyone on the bus and where we were from. It’s the little things! IRAZU VOLCANO We drove to the top of the active volcano where we spent about 20/30 minutes taking in the view and taking pictures. Even though it was 10 degrees Celsius, I wasn't really cold (and I was wearing shorts). It was very windy, so bear that in mind if you’re wearing a hat! Note that you won’t see a lake as the water dried up back in 2019 I think. LANKESTER GARDENS This tour around the botanic garden was nice. Again, our guide was so full of knowledge and was telling us about the life cycle of the plants. There was some free time to walk around the Japanese garden at the end. LUNCH This was the last thing on the tour – it was tasty. You get a starter, main and dessert with coffee. The lunch was by a VERY beautiful lake. I definitely recommend walking down and just taking in the serene view and silence. N.B. there were other stops along the way, e.g., a Roman Catholic basilica, the Ujarras lookout site, the ruins of the oldest church in the city. This tour is jam-packed.

          Loved it!
          Really wonderful experience. We’ve done several sunset boat tours in different countries and this was by far the best. Terrific crew, well organized, great service, a clean and well kept boat, lots of options for the swimming/snorkeling part, super convenient hotel pickup, a really fun atmosphere, and such gorgeous scenery. Pick this one.

          Great Experience
          Allen was great and was very attentive to all guests needs. He emphasized safety which was very important. He and his crew served a delicious meal (late afternoon), we took the sunset cruise and saw dolphins and snorkeled and used all the boats amenities. the boat was not overcrowded and was well maintained. The music was fun and created a party atmosphere. Most of the people were families and we all enjoyed it very much. We docked for a while and snorkeled and swam, etc... i highly recommend.

          Good tour
          Very much worth visiting. We had a very knowledgable tour guide, and the lunch was fantastic. Irazu volcano part is quite flat, and we had nearly 1 hour there, do consider visiting! The blue lake as shown in the picture is there after it rains, so don't expect to see it in the dry season.

          The Lankester Gardens were beautiful
          For first part of trip, the Irazu Volcano was nice view of the crater. The lady of the angels church was very beautiful and appreciated that when asked questions the guide was very informative. The Lankester gardens were really pretty and the place was really well taken care of. The gardens made the trip well worth it. My favorite part was La Ceiba restaurant which was amazing. The food was tasty and presentation was delightful. I would recommend the tour and asking questions if want to get more from tour.

          Tortuga Island Day trip
          Overpriced ridiculously long day. Coach pick up was great, but the boat was absolutely packed full. When it started to rain, there was not enough space under cover for people to sit. It was basically a rowdy group of people just paying for over-priced drinks. The island itself was ok, but nothing to explore since the trails were blocked off. The sun loungers were like sardines layed out next to each other. Lunch was extremely basic.

          Josue made our day magical!
          The spot is absolutely gorgeous! Warm, turquoise waters surrounded by a lush coastline! Josue was just a joy and brought us to this stunning beach during our tour! Would absolutely recommend.

          I'd do it again!
          This river rocks! Great action with several class IV rapids. Nothing beats floating down a river in the middle of a lush rain forest.

          Forgot to pick up from hotel
          I'm sad to say that they did not pick us up for our tour, so we cannot really rate the actual tour,. If you book this tour I would suggest calling the day before to make sure they still pick you up. I have messaged the tour company and am waiting for a response.

          Loved this experience!
          I traveled with a group of friends to Manuel Antonio, and we spent our day on this ocean kayaking and snorkeling tour. I thought this excursion was by far one of my favorite activities I’ve done in Costa Rica so far thanks to Josué, who kept the trip interesting and comedic with his punch lines. I was impressed by his professionalism and his thoughtfulness. We admire the hard work that Josué puts into giving his clients a good experience—thanks Josué! If you want a more detailed overview of what’s included: you’ll get to travel by kayak to the snorkeling area, observe the ocean life, kayak to the shore to eat pineapple, rinse off at the beach, kayak back, and enjoy lunch with your tour guide. Pura Vida!

          Beautiful Sunset Cruise
          This tour was nice and convenient because it was sailing out of Flamingo and that’s where we were staying . And Flamingo did not have a lot to offer regarding tours. The crew was super nice. And I notice for the families that had children the crew was so good to the kids . Very patient and kind and generous. This cruise is good for couples and for families. Our boat was very nice with all the boat toys and we took a nice trip around the coast with a couple swim spots and snorkeling then back for the sunset . We saw dolphins! They provided an open bar with alcohol and non alcohol drinks and a small lunch .

        We booked this excursion through the TUI app. It was very well organized as a coach picked us up from our hotel at 07:30. We had a tour guide and a driver. The tour guide stayed with us the whole day.

        Something to be aware of- it says the excursion lasts approximately 8 hours which it does but it takes 2 hours by coach to get to the activity centre. (We stayed at RUI Palace but travel time is about the same from most hotels as the activity centre is very remote) This means that once you minus travel time, lunch and an unexpected talk about sugar and pot making which wasn't listed on the itinerary, you're left with about 3 hours of activity time.

        We started with the zipline. We were given our equipment and shown how to use it. You're given a pair of gloves with a big piece of leather that you use to slow your speed. The trek up to the first zipline took about 10 minutes. Uphill in the heat- I struggled but made it. The zip line was amazing. You do 7 in total. To be aware of- as soon as you finish one zipline you have to walk up another short hill to the next ziplines. It's very fast moving...a little rushed as they're trying to get you through as quickly as possible. They take photos of you on the 5th zipline. If you choose not to zipline you can back out at any time and walk over the hanging bridges instead.

        We then did horse riding. The horses looked well kept and there were a lot of them so I doubt the same horses were being used for rides all day. The trip was very hilly...I felt sorry for my horse having to go up such steep hills! Going down was a bit scary in parts. Lasted 35 minutes. You can also choose to sit this out if you like.

        We then did the waterslide. You walk up the same trek as the zipline so I decided to sit it out as I was exhausted. The waterslide looked fun, my husband said it went very fast and was a bit uncomfortable as it is concrete. Girls were being given leather 'nappies' to wear to stop their skin from being scratched. They also provide towels.

        Lunch was good- a buffet of local food like beans, rice, chicken and beef with a glass of juice. There was a payable bar too. We brought photos of our activities ($25 for 2 activities or $30 for 3)

        We then took a tractor ride to the thermal spa which was beautiful. We just wish someone had told us to bring cash as the bar only accepted cash and not even bottled water was complimentary. The pools are lovely and warm with beautiful views. There is only one sign saying don't put your head under the water to prevent amebic meningitis which a lot of people missed - so be aware of that!

        All in all, a fun day out but absolutely exhausting!

        Top Tips:

        1. Bring zip pockets to store your camera/phone for the zipline.

        2. Bring water shorts for the slide.

        3. Bring cash

        We stayed at the RIU palace in Guanacaste, our tour guide Luis was awesome. It was 14 of us in a big group. We arrived there and some of us went on the hanging bridges and some to the zip lines, we continued with a Buffett which was delicious then we went horseback riding through the forest. We finished off at the spa which was relaxing before heading back to our hotel. We had a blast to say the least. I would recommend Luis as a tour guide since he knows of all the spots and has his hookups. We only payed $120 each with him. You can reach him on WhatsApp and he will respond. +506 8439 0024.

        Great day out made by our awesome host for the day Walter.
        After being picked up from our hotel our host Walter gave us a quick update on recent Costa Rican history which was really interesting.
        Upon arrival at site we undertook the horse riding activity which was fun as a complete novice.
        Then we went for a cultural tour where we learnt about traditional foods and industries, and a local villager demonstrated how they make artefacts. Next was ziplining or hanging bridges, having just done some zip lines elsewhere we went on the hanging bridges which was fun.
        Next was a traditional Costa Rican lunch which was delicious.
        The afternoon session started with the jungle water slide which was amazing fun.
        A few of us then went for a quick hike to see a hidden waterfall which was a highlight.
        Last activity was sauna and mud baths and hot pool to allow us all to relax and set off in the journey home.

        Thanks Walter for a great day, would highly recommend
