This was a great combo tour. The breakfast at Doka Coffee was excellent, and I learned a lot about the coffee farm process and industry. I really enjoyed La Paz waterfall garden- especially the sloths and butterfly exhibits. It was a nice mini hike along the river, not too strenuous. We didn't have good views at the volcano but sometimes that's what happens with the weather, not much we can do about it! It was a long day with lots of time in the shuttle, but that's to be expected considering all the different places we stopped at.

The thing about tours is that you are usually stuck with a bunch of people that you don't really want to be with. On our tour to La Paz Waterfall Gardens 2 people in the group clearly had colds or flu or possibly something worse and were coughing and sneezing the whole time. At best it was very antisocial and unpleasant for everyone else. At worst, they could have now spread the Coronavirus to everyone else on the bus! The gardens are stunning and we had 3 hours there but we would have preferred to stay longer. You definitely don't need a tour if you have your own transport as it's easy to get around everything and there are maps and information in English.

I had an amazing day tour with Eric. He was a great guide and knows a lot about nature! He also makes sure that everyone in the group respects the animals and the nature. Thumbs up to preserving wildlife and planet earth.

This is an ambitious agenda for a one day tour. Our guides picked us up the hotel promptly at 6:05. After picking up just one other group, a family of 4, we went on to Irazú. We were fortunate to have good weather and views of and from the volcano were magnificent. We then went on to a brief stop in Cartago to see the cathedral (beautiful), then to Lankester Gardens, and then to lunch at a lovely restaurant in the Orosi valley. The problem was that it was a long time between a sketchy breakfast before 6 a.m. to lunch after 1 p.m. We were not able to the give the gardens the attention they deserved -- hungry and tired. Not sure if the logistics would allow this schedule to be rejigged and have lunch before going to the Gardens.. At the end of a long day, we hit San José's nightmarish rush hour traffic on the return. This is not the fault of the organizer, but meant we didn't get back to our hotel until after 7 p.m. A long day, but worth the effort in order to see Irazú.
