Hi, I've been comparing different tour companies and have noticed similarities between some Desafio tours and other companies (specifically the combo tour with hanging bridges in Arenal). Does Desafio work with other companies or are they their own?
Thank you very much for your question. I can imagine it's a little overwhelming to pick and choose activities and tour operators here in the Arenal
Volcano area because there is just so much to do!
Desafio Adventure Company is the pioneering adventure outfitter with over 25 years of experience. Our founder was the first one to go out and explore and get the first descents on many of the rivers and canyons in the area and we now directly operate over 20 of our own, exclusive activities, including rafting, canyoning, hiking, biking, kayaking, etc.
What also sets us apart is that we have invested in top-quality infrastructure and equipment with private installations for the comfort of our clients and our own fleet of brand-new transportation. Plus, we are one of the only companies to employ full-time, professional guides.
We are the direct operator of the Arenal Highlights Combo visiting the main attractions in the area for nature lovers: the Hanging Bridges, Arenal Volcano National Park and La Fortuna Waterfall using our own highly-trained Nature Guides. We only take small, personalized groups and carry a comprehensive liability insurance policy for all of our services.
Overall, you are going to love the Arenal Highlights Combo regardless of which company you go with, but we hope you choose Desafio Adventure Company!
In addition, we have offices in other parts of the country and can help you set up a seamless and affordable vacation including hotels, transportation and of course our own activities.
Thank you again for your question and we look forward to having you here in Costa Rica!!
