We were looking for a tour to do the hanging bridges, arenal volcano hike and the la fortuna waterfall. I was thinking of using a large your operator until I was introduced to Dinghy expeditions by Powerwheels, another small ATV tour operator in la fortuna. I decided to try dinghy expeditions. Diana had emailed me multiple times and even called... More

We really enjoyed this expedition! We saw lots of various birds and wildlife while learning about each that we saw. We ended at a farm where we were served fresh cheese, yucca bread and plantains. We highly recommend this tour!

Our host in Nuevo Arenal recommended Dinghy Expeditions to hike Cerro Chato. I met Diana & Ahndres for 1/2 day hike to the lake inside and return. Ahndres led me on much more than a hike, it was an adventure, a personalized trek to the emerald lake contained within. Stopping was not limited to catching my breath, but learning of... More

This river float on a raft with Ahndres & Diana was at the top of my list to do. It exceeded my expectations. Ahndres' took very good care of us, not rushing us but guided the raft for a good long view of a croc, caimans, howler monkeys and many birds. His knowledge and eye for seeing the animals and...

Due to a personal recommendation from someone we knew in Arenal, my friend and I engaged Ahndres Leon and Diana Taneva for a morning Dinghy Expedition down the river to view wildlife and learn about the river. This was my fourth trip to Costa Rica. Ahndres is a skilled and English-proficient guide, one of the best I've ever met. We... More

Ahndres & Diana are amazing human beings and experts at what they do. I loved the private aspect of the trip. Ahndres was our tour guide and he was so informative as both a rafting guide and a tour guide. He was so knowledgable and showered us with information about the wildlife and ecosystem of Costa Rica as we were... More

Ahndres & Diana provide a personalized rafting experience for small groups. They came highly recommended to us and we booked a day trip for our family of four; 2 adults and 2 kids age (almost) 9 & 11. This was the kids first rafting experience and they absolutely loved it. Ahndres explained all of the safety information clearly to the... More

From the moment Diana and Ahndres picked me up, I felt like we had been friends for years. Ahndres made sure to give a rundown on safety protocol en route so I felt uber-comfortable testing the waters. Rafting down the Balsa, we were surrounded by lush jungle, playful howler monkeys and lazy sloths (which Ahndres pointed out; I swear that... More

My husband and I did a combined ATV Tour with Power Wheels Adventure and followed up with an afternoon rafting with Dinghy Expeditions. Both tours were exceptional!!! Diana and her husband Ahndres were incredible and took us on a fabulous whitewater rafting tour that was not only fun and exhilarating, but exposed us to local vendors as well as wildlife.... More
