I spent 3 months in Costa Rica and did several activities throughout the Country. I took three waterfall tours with Tropical Escapade from Golfito; they were so much fun! I had the best time ever with my guide Fernando. It was way more than regular hikes going to waterfalls. He had the kid in me out playing the whole time. His creativity to have fun with anything he finds is incredible. He also ensured I had unique and amazing pictures of these beautiful hidden gems. From hanging upside down over natural pools, jumping from cliffs, Tarzan swinging with liana, swimming in crystal clear natural water holes, and rappelling powerful waterfalls, I can’t even express the excitement and heart beating moments. Experience it, or you will regret it!

My husband and I had a blast doing this canyoning tour! From the first contact with Tropical Escapade, everything was clear and well organized. Even if the activity we chose was quite extreme, we always felt safe and enjoyed every second of our journey. The rainforest is fantastic; our guide made us temporary tattoos with plants, talked about different super interesting medicinal plants, and even had us taste food that Mother nature provides. We were very entertained during the hike, and then we arrived in front of a beautiful waterfall. Our guide told us: that the adventure begins here! He made sure our harnesses were tied and helmets clipped, made a recap of some technical instructions, and we had the most amazing time doing rappelling right in the waterfall jet and jumping down the river. We had the whole jungle for ourselves. I recommend this tour to any adrenaline junkies. We wish we had time to do more adventures; Golfito has much more to offer than we thought. We promised to return soon and try more activities with Tropical Escapade.

Mangrove Kayak Tour I’m probably in the minority of tourists here on the Osa Peninsula. Animal spotting happens everywhere here, on any tour. And while that’s cool, I just love being inside the mangrove forest. So this kayak tour up river into the heart of the mangroves was magical. Kayaking allows you to be unclose to these otherworldly trees. The delicate, spider-legged root systems of the red mangroves seemed to lift the dense forest over a meter above the surface of the water in defiance of gravity, forming a window into the forest. Above clusters of dark-green leaves spiraled like playing cards. Just beyond, the tea and white mangroves rose upward arching over the river from both sides. We paddled upriver, until the “river” was little more than a creek and we were surrounded. I learned that mangroves serve many different functions for the protection of the shoreline for humans, wildlife and even for the coral reefs. Yes, we also saw squirrel monkeys, ibis and even a crocodile. But if you are flexible and want to maximize your tour, ask Cindy for advice on the tides, the moon and the time of day. This tour can also include bioluminesce, sunset paddling in the gulf and more animals, including dolphins. However, for me the mangrove forest itself is the star of the show.

This tour was our last tour of our Costa Rica trip. We went to another entrance of Corcovado on an earlier tour, so we hoped that this tour would not be exactly the same. And what an addition it was! Our guide was super friendly, nice, patiënt en showed us so many animals! We even saw a deer, squirrel monkeys, two anteaters and two tapirs! So amazing. We had the best time and we really felt like this was the best ending of our Costa Rica trip as possible.

Me and my friend are debating it this was was the funnest day of our lives. We were taught about the local culture, about the plants, Fernando was great at teaching us how to do new activities. We haven’t done any of the rope swing or repelling before and he was great at explaining how. Just book it.
