        Excellent day!
        Punctual and knowledgeable, Gabriel was a good driver and a wonderful guide. He showed us so many animals and local stops for reasonably priced souvenirs.

        This was an amazing experience. Guillermo was a fantastic guide. We really enjoyed talking to him and learned so much about Costa Rica from him. And the 4 in 1 experience was unforgettable. The tubing was exhilarating yet relaxing, the ziplining was unmatched, and there could have been no better way to unwind than by unwinding in the hot springs at the end

        Crocs and Birds and MONKEYS! OH MY
        We were blown away by our trip to the river. Memo, our AMAZING Driver and guide took us to see locals diving for buckets of mineral rich soils that were hauled by gorgeous oxen. We were offered fresh cantaloupe by a fellow on the way and Memo drove us through his small village on the way to Palo Verde. We learned SO MUCH. Once at the very “ Green” River we were helped onto a comfortable covered boat with Manuel as our Captain and Andres as our “ Naturalist’s guide” We saw amazing birds, lizards, crocodiles and bats native to the region. We were told by Memo that nature has no guarantees but I can assure that the river ride was green and fresh and simply beautiful A high point was seeing 3 of the 4 species of monkeys in Costa Rica. This was “ highly unusual” according to all guides but Manuel was truly an “ animal whisperer” so howler, spider and capuchin monkeys all came to hang out! The capuchins ( like Marcel from Friends) were inches away as Manuel chatted to the wee creatures with adorable porcelain looking faces. Great photo ops for sure Lunch at a family owned restaurant offered a chance to see Maria make tortillas over a wood fire. Delicious juice from the area was cold and plentiful with tortilla, rice, beans, fire barbecued chicken and a salad made from another local fruit was all sensational and plentiful served “ family style”. Dragonfruit and coconut ice cream finished off the meal. SO TASTY! Clean bathrooms and great coffee at this spot too. All included. There were some lovely unique souvenirs at very reasonable prices tucked away in a corner for our interest but no pressure to buy A local potter was teaching us his craft and small pieces were available but again NO PRESSURE Memo made sure our very comfy, high quality van was cool and he told us several times that he was there at our service and we should be worry free! We thank Kevin for booking this trip and we could not get over the personalized, quick and kind service provided We have requested Memo for another tour tomorrow. Once again Kevin has planned an itinerary that is personal and thoughtful. We can’t wait to see Memo again. Service was beyond our wildest expectations Thank you from our huge Canadian Hearts COSTOURS are FIRST CLASS all the way!

        Professional and Hassle-free
        Costour provided a seamless and efficient experience to complete a border run. From the quick response to my inquiry about scheduling, to the flexible pick-up locations in and around Coco, the entire trip was a breeze. Their professional driver guided every step in the process of paying the exit taxes, navigating the Nicaraguan customs entry and exit process, and re-entering Costa Rica. I will always use Costour for this excursion.

        A Border Run with no Pain
        A Border Run with no Pain! My Costa Rican visa was about to expire on November 7, 2023, so I decided to participate in a border run organized and led by Costour on November 6. I very much appreciated the assistance we continuously got from the driver of their maxi-van during the run. He very well deserves our congratulations for his excellent service. I definitely intend to use the Costour service again the next time that I need to participate in a border run. Despite the fact that the Costa Rican/Nicaraguan border was closed for an hour due to a prisoner exchange once we got there, it was truly a run without pain.

        What an amazing adventure
        Costours was absolutely amazing! The 4-in-1 adventure package was such a wonderful experience. It’s truly the do it all package. Our guide, Memo, was so accommodating, fun, and knowledgeable. The horseback riding, zip lining, and the tubing at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin was fantastic. The horses were super well trained, the tubing and zip lining was facilitated by an excellent team to ensure your safety. The tour ended with the hot springs which was the perfect ending to the day. We also used Costours for our airport transportation and they’re always on time, prompt and extremely friendly. Highly recommend the Costours team! Pura Vida!

After the tour we were welcomed for a delicious authentic lunch! The chicken, tortilla, rice and beans were so good. Then we had a pottery lesson from the artist himself. Definitely recommend!

        Great jungle tour
        The boat tour was great and the food was delicious. We loved the dragon fruit juice. On the boat tour we saw monkeys, a lot of birds and crocodiles. After the tour they brought us back to the main building and we ate some really good food consisting of rice, beans and chicken. I highly recommend this company.

        A Must Do Tour!
        What a great tour! Our driver Memo, was the best and provided so much local knowledge. The hacienda and grounds were absolutely beautiful and was the best lunch we had. Amazed at how many iguanas roamed the property. Roberto taught us so much on the rum making process, and we had fun making our own rum concoctions. Thank you all for helping to make our trip so memorable. Definitely recommend this tour!

        Was very disappointed with the service and the dirty bus. There was a terrible smell in the bus and the driver told us there was a bachelor party the night before and I will spare you the rest of the details.

        Nicaragua Run
        I do remember lol. I went with Costours to do the Nicaragua Boarder Run. I was really nervous to do this trip on my own as I have never done it before. Thank you so much to Yves and our amazing driver for making the trip very easy, quick and relaxing. Got another 90 days to stay in Costa Rica and really appreciate this “guided tour” of the boarder!

      This was worth every penny! The van was private and air-conditioned. The tour and hiking guides were so kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. The views of the volcanoes and landscape along the way were breathtaking. When we arrived for the hike the wildlife was unbelievable and everywhere! We saw spider monkeys, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, several sloths, butterflies, birds, red-eyed tree frogs, hummingbirds, and more. Along the trail, there were little refreshments of fresh fruit, coffee, and water set up for us. We hiked down a beautiful path surrounded by vibrant flowers to swim in the most fantastic river of cool turquoise blue water. After cooling off we headed to a delicious traditional lunch made fresh and while we waited for it to be ready relaxed in the butterfly garden where we saw giant blue butterflies the size of your face. Our trip ended with a nap on the ride back and a pit stop at a great gift shop. Definitely book this tour!

      Our air conditioned 2 our ride to the first destination was pleasant! The guide was attentive and accommodating. The nature walk was doable by our five year old and we had a great time too. The guide was able to point out numerous things. Sloths, monkeys, frogs, leaf cutter ants, cicadas, butterflies and even cool plants. Just when that was done off we went for a beautiful swim may be chilly for some but not for us and then off for a great lunch and surprise a butterfly experience with it. Then a nice ride back with a great stop at a lovely gift store and ICE CREAM!!! Long day I at first thought turned into a rather fast and glad we did it experience. Memo our driver/ guide was top notch informative and again attentive.

      My spouse and I along with my sister and her husband went on this excursion at 7am. In February 2023 From Vista Ocotal. It took 2 plus hours to get up into the Mountains between the two volcanoes. It was in the low 80F rather than the 90s at the beach. Very light mist. Super comfortable weather. We stopped for coffee and pastries on the way.

      When we arrived, we went on a two hour walking tour to see animals and birds. Right off, we were shown a viper at about knee hight so we were able to get really close. Then we saw sleeping sloths in the trees. We saw several kinds of Toucans and other birds. We saw lots of White faces monkeys and howler monkeys. We were taken next to a tico Soda for authentic Tico home cooked like they do at home. These were our best meals in Costa Rica! They also had a fantastic Butterfly experience with scads of different butterflies.

      We then we're taken to a river where we could swim and cool off, but we weren't very hot and the river was cold, so we just splashed around for a while. Then we headed back and arrived at Vista Ocotal at 4:00pm.

      Our guide/driver spoke English fairly well but didn't know the deep details we were asking for at times. But he was very personable and fun all the time. It was a very different experience than the guided boat trip on the river and we saw completely different plants and animals. I highly recommend doing both!!! We are all between 60-70 yrs old, in good health. These tours are great for our age. Easy walking, modest inclines.

      My partner and I had an absolutely amazing time on this excursion. Papito was so knowledgable about everything Costa Rica related and we came away having learnt so much. We saw many animals on the treck and we were lucky enough to see a 7 month old baby sloth feeding on leaves a foot in front of us. The lunch stop was a traditional Costa Rican restaurant and the food was faultless. It was the best day of the holiday and when we return we will do this again!

      We did the Palo Verde boat and Sloth discovery tours. The tour guides were great - very knowledgeable with answers to every question. The sloth tour was unbelievable - the sloths weren't just up in the trees - we met a sloth walking along the path, oh so very slowly and carefully! And birds, 400 yr old trees. We stopped by a mountain stream for a quick swim. On the boat tour we stopped by a worksite where men were digging up sand out of a river that would be used to make cement. they loaded the sand onto ox carts - for real!, pulled it up to a clearing and dumped it. A big backhoe then scooped it up and loaded it on a big 18-wheel truck. A real contrast of traditional and modern Costa Rica. CosTour is well worth fitting into your visit to Costa Rica. These tours are as close to seeing wild animals in their natural state as you can get.

      A few things to be aware of:

      - It's a 2 hour van drive from Coco Beach area. So, when you think about it as an all day adventure, 4 hours are driving. Views are very nice though.
      - The "hike" to view the animals is not really a hike. It's more of a stroll through the eco park. Not strenuous at all. No need to bring water or snacks. The guides are really good at sighting the animals. Saw sloths, howler monkeys, tree frogs, iguanas, all kinds of birds and a lot of cool insects (like leaf-cutter ants).
      - Bring a swimsuit to change into as there is a nice dip in a nearby watering hole on the tour as well. It's is beautiful. Water is chilly.
      - The stop for lunch was great as well. Soda El Sabor - Dona Carmen. Great food, butterfly garden and nice bird viewing. Clean bathrooms!!

      Our tour guide, Guillermo, was great as well.

      Sloth tour was fantastic! Gabrial was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Even though Rio Celeste was muddy because it was raining he still made the stop interesting. He made sure all were comfortable and dry. Lunch was delicious and the butterflies were a delightful surprise.Thank you again Gabrial for a wonderful day.

      Thank you for taking the time to write a comment we appreciated.Mother nature was indeed very generous with the group yesterday. The sloths were awsome but we were also very much amazed when we arrived and saw both white faced monkey and howler monkeys gretting us when we arrived in the tropical forest. Very rare to see them all together since they are usually very territorial. Happy you enjoyed your day. We always work hard to try to make it the best experience for our guests.

      Our trip combined a visit to a farm where we saw sloths, monkeys, and other creatures with a trip to Rio Celeste Waterfall. The sloth discovery portion was fun, but for me, the best part was the Rio Celeste Waterfall and then swimming in the river. That water is the most incredible shade of blue imaginable! Our guide, Rodman, was funny and helpful, switching back and forth from English to French to accommodate us. We also booked a trip to Palo Verde National park with a riverboat tour and saw tons of crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, and birds. We got Rodman as our guide for this trip as well.
