This tour is an all day adventure where you can learn more about Costa Rica - Antonio (our guide) was full of facts regarding politics, geography, history, and biology of Costa Rica! I feel like I learned a lot while enjoying some great scenic views on the ride to the Volcano & Hot Springs, as well as upon arrival. You typically get paired up with others (depending on how large your group is already), and in my case, my dad and I got paired up with two other awesome people ready for discovery! The drive is a bit long, and weather in July is very rainy, but I still felt like we were in good hands with Antonio (who speaks great Spanish and English). A very fancy lunch and delicious buffet dinner are provided; and although it's not mentioned, we also made an early stop at a cafe where we could purchase breakfast (if desired).

What a wonderful tour! Oscar was an outstanding tour guide who really personalized the experience for everyone in our group. He kept his energy level high all day which was quite a feat because it is nearly 14 hours long. It was great to see all the animals in the wild and natural wonders along the way. We had plenty of snacks and stops along the drive. Zip lining in La Fortuna and the Hot Springs were highlights. Would highly recommend!

I did a last minute solo trip to costa rica to and this was an amazing experience and would definitely do it again. If you’re doing a solo trip and are trying to do some relaxing this is definitely for you! The volcano view is amazing and the hot spring were so relaxing and to die for. Victoria was so helpful when it came down to time and place where I would get picked up. Danielle the driver was amazing, very informative and high energy. Danielle went out he’s way to make sure we were all comfortable and he made sure to give us as many stops as needed to use the restroom since it’s a pretty long trip. Overall the people we met on the way were so beautiful and sweet.

Mario our tour guide picked me up promptly on time from my hotel and was the most informative guide I’ve ever had! He was so accommodating to everyone’s needs and made sure to check in to ensure we all had a good time. The tour is long, he drove all day and he is amazing. I stupidly did not have anymore cash left and wished to tip him and am contacting the agency to see if there’s a way I can do that so make sure to tip your guide accordingly based on your experience, it’s the least we could do for their hard work. The hot springs were my favorite part of the experience even with the thunder storms as it helped cool us down, truly a core memory to remember. Thank you again Mario!!

Our tour guide Jorge is a very likeable guy. He's funny, knowledgable and enthusiastic. We were fortunate to get a very clear view of the Arenal Volcano. The experience at Baldi Hot Springs was a blast. Lunch and Dinner were fantastic. Everything about this tour was a positive experience. Shout out to the driver Vini as well.

I did this tour with my boyfriend and we enjoyed the ride through the country to the volcano. The food was good and the ride was very informative. We saw the volcano however because it was a cloudy day we weren’t able to see the top of the volcano. I enjoyed this trip however if i were to do this again I would do it as a day trip and stay at la fortuna

Family of 5! We had an amazing day. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice. They accommodated my picky eaters for lunch also. We forgot our cell phone on the bus and it was returned the next day at our hotel. Our tour guide went above and beyond to make sure we had a good tour. Very grateful.

I was very excited to take this trip as my transportation was covered, we took a stop to Sarchi, lunch and dinner was provided, and I was going to see the volcano and bahldi hot springs. I was disappointed because the tour guide made it seem like we would be walking through trails around the volcano and could spot wildlife, however, that was not the case. We traveled for three hour straight to the volcano, took pictures, and left for the hot springs for the next four hours. If you like to just relax then this is the trip for you. If you like to hike or walk and see nature, then choose a different version of this trip!
