      Great Day
      Highly recommend as all stops were great. Feeding the monkeys is tough to beat, seeing crocs in their natural environment was interesting and the local lunch was tasty.

      Incredible up close encounters!
      It was awesome, a dream since I was a kid! We ended up having our own private tour, we had so many monkeys on us, over a dozen, they were gentle and sweet (despite all of the bad rep the white faced capuchins get). It was surreal how they would take the fruits from our hands, or nibble gently on the fruit as we held them, or even lick our fingers when it was just mush left. Our driver and guide, Tatiana, was amazing - friendly, very knowledgeable and we were never rushed at any of the activities. Lunch was also one of the best meals we’ve had in Costa Rica. It was truly a five star experience!

      Paul and Jose great guides
      Great time and great service they picked us up from our hotel and dropped us back off 45 mins away hassle free. I had two tour guides, one was Paul he drove us and the other guys name was Jose I believe I can’t remember but he was extremely informative and a friendly great guy who told me more about Costa Rica than I knew up until that day. Took us to eat local Costa Rican food and it was very good as well. Recommend these guys. Also brought us to alligator bridge and we saw gators. Recommend these guys ask for Paul and his partner for sure

      Great experience!
      What a phenomenal experience with the white faced monkeys!!! Our driver/guide Carlos was great, answered all our questions and offered additional information about Jaco, Costa Rica and animals, as well as pointed out birds along the way. The large van was very comfortable, Clean and kept cool. Our lunch spot was great too. Definitely recommend!

      Amazing morning with DELICIOUS food
      About an hour drive to a small town. Monkeys are in the forest behind some houses. It’s so cool to see them come when called! Carlos was our tour guide and was phenomenal. He took us to crocodile bridge which was SO COOL! Fresh fruit on the drive to the monkeys and an INCREDIBLE meal on the way back at Casita Del Sabor. It was so good we went back the next day for another meal! Definitely recommend this one!!

      Best tour of our visit to Costa Rica/Jaco Beach área! Would highly recommend for all ages. Loved our guide, Joel!
      This was the best tour of our 10 day stay! We loved it so much! Our tour guide, Joel, was so fun and very informative about the White Faced Capuchin Monkeys and our driver taught us some Costa Rican culture. We were able to feed them and they climbed on us and visited with us for over an hour. We stopped to see the river and crocs. The included meal was delicious! Our driver and tour guide were so patient and let us get a group photo on an extra stop. Our group was in three different locations, so we picked a hotel that was centrally located for all of us where they picked us up at 800am. It was exactly as advertised and better than I had hoped. :) Thank you!

      These Monkeys are Amazing!!
      This was such a sweet experience! The monkey’s are darling! They love bananas and are willing to take them from your hand and will even climb up to your shoulder to eat. We were lucky enough to see two mama monkeys who were still carrying their babies on their back! It was awesome! We really enjoyed the drive back with a stop on the crocodile bridge and viewing the giant crocodiles. The lunch was absolutely DELICIOUS! La Casita Sabor is yummy and filling! Thank you so much to Roy as our driver and tour guide today. Schedule your tour today!

      Wonderful experience!
      This was a blast! So much fun! Everyone was so nice and welcoming. We did 10 zipline cables that were a great time to experience. Our guides Josue y Justin we so fun and nice. There was also a photographer who joined and took fun photos of the experience (extra fee for purchase of all photos but totally worth the capture of the moments). Not having to worry about braking was perfect so we could just enjoy the adventure. Book your zipline and enjoy the ride!!!

    This is a four hour trek up the mountain (about 1500 foot climb) that has you walking on course rocks, walking in streams, and climbing steep rock faces using limited footholds and ropes to pull yourself up. It is NOT for someone over sixty who isn't physically fit! My wife and I (65 and 68 years old) made it, but it was a bit tough for us. That being said, the tour and especially our guide, Daniel, were amazing! You really don't need to bring anything as long as you wear a swimsuit. A backpack is just a burden to carry. In total, we "walked" about 9000 steps in 4 hours!

    What an amazing tour! It’s a little scary during wet season when the water is running like crazy. The guides are amazing and took awesome care of us. We learned so much about the rainforest and even bumped into some monkeys. It was a true sense of accomplishment to get through all 10 waterfalls. You will be wet the whole time. Make sure you wear shoes with tread and can use ropes to pull yourself up. The guides told us it’s much simplier during dry season. I’d love to try that too. Wet season isn’t for the faint at heart.

    Absolutely LOVED this excursion with Pablo! The 10 waterfalls hike with Pablo was all of our favorite part of our Costa Rica trip. Pablo was recommended to us from another family that we met and had just done the hike, so we requested him and are so HAPPY we got him. He is extremely knowledgeable and made the whole day fun! He showed us different plants and animals, he let us stay in the water however long we wanted to, he never rushed us or seemed irritated or anything. He also was very safe with us and helped my daughters multiple times without us having to ask or anything. When we were done he took us to his mom’s restaurant to eat lunch and it was the BEST food we had in Costa Rica, we even went back and ate there two more times! Then to top it off Lucy, the dog, followed us up the entire mountain, even climbing the ladder! So happy we did this, it is a must do activity in Costa Rica and you need to request Pablo! Not sure how much they pay, but he deserves a good check, not sure they know how great he is and I will be recommending him to everyone that we know going to Costa Rica!!

    There were 6 of us plus guides Joshua and Carlos. The hike was slightly challenging; just enough to be very memorable. You do need to be moderately fit to do the full tour as there are some steep climbs, but the falls and pools are well worth the effort! Our group ranged in age from 56 to 72 and we had no problem. Our guides were knowledgeable, charming and sincere, and well organized to ensure that everyone was safe, also bringing our bags across the pools. Wear good footwear suitable for water - good sandals (not thongs) or Crocs for example.

    This tour was amazing! Our guide, Daniel, showed us all kinds of things in the Rainforest, from trees used for medicine and we even saw a poisonous frog. (No worries) Wear good water shoes, as you will him a lot and they will get wet. The waterfalls were absolutely beautiful and so magical. Daniel was our guardian angel and kept us all safe! Thank you, Daniel. Pura Vida!

    The guides were awesome, the waterfalls were beautiful and the lunch was quite tasty. I would not recommend this excursion for people who are not in good physical shape. There are no lockers or places to store your belongings. You should come ready and prepared to do some serious hiking.

    This amazing tour started with guide Daniel picking us up at our condominium and explaining the details of the hike while transporting us. Me and my spouse were both a few months out of recent health issues - myself a broken arm and him a knee replacement. We shared this information with Daniel and he assured us we would take this one step at a time. As we were hiking through to the falls Daniel pointed out many of the flora and fauna native to the area. We enjoyed this immensely. Each waterfall became more and more impressive. Prior to the more difficult part of the hike, Daniel explained to us in detail what we would be facing and gave us the opportunity whether to continue or not. We were so glad we chose to complete this adventure! As the hiking became difficult Daniel assisted us in the rope climbing which turned out to be the most exciting part of this hike. Arriving at the 10th waterfall was truly amazing and so worth the effort. The return is an easier path around the falls. Ask for Daniel! He is a local with tons of knowledge. Thank You!

    Daniel was an excellent tour guide- very knowledgeable, careful, fun, and kind. We were picked up at our condo, driven to the hike, provided fruit and a delicious authentic meal.
    This is definitely a technically difficult hike but Daniel is there at any point it might get tricky. There are these awesome “yellow brick road” markers (concrete footholds painted yellow) to mark your way and ropes to hold onto.
    I think there were technically 11 waterfalls!! Such a great experience and I think worth the amount we paid.
    It was very easy to book and we appreciate the whole team involved.
    Thank you!

    This was the best adventure we did in Jaco. Everything went perfectly. We had an early pickup out front of our hotel, the great nature tour given by the best guide Daniel “The Lion”, beautiful landscapes and cool waters to swim in. You end with a great traditional meal from a local favorite. Book it while you can.

    We had such a great experience. The hike uphill is difficult if you’re not fit but you can go to the first waterfall and stay there. We hiked halfway up then decided to go back down. Pablo even helped us by carrying a heavy backpack all the way up. Anderson was very helpful and stayed with us three at the bottom. He was outstanding and it was only his first day. Abraham was awesome too. We went to lunch at an authentic little place where they easily accommodated all 14 of our group. It was local cuisine with a choice of chicken or fish and even a vegetarian meal and it was delicious. We would highly recommend this excursion. The scenery was beautiful and again, the employees made it a wonderful experience.
