    This is our second time in country and we chose Natives Way again intentionally. The tubing was our favorite but every part of this excursion is SO worth it! You are well taken care of and well informed all throughout the day. The guys at each activity take such great safety precautions and have a fun time with you while adventuring with them. Natives Way is a top notch tour service with high quality employees and transportation so you can't go wrong!

    Absolutely love the trip to the waterfalls and to the sloth sanctuary with Jorge. Shuttle arrived on time and was well equipped and comfortable. I enjoyed the stop at El Jardine for souvenirs and breakfast. Absolutely loved the curated hike through the rainforest and the beautiful Reault Celeste waterfall that was bright blue for our visit. I would recommend that anyone with any health issues avoid the steps going up and down to the waterfall. Truly enjoyed the sloth sanctuary with Daniel as our guide. Saw many sloths, green tree toads, red dart frogs, and many beautiful plants. Enjoyed also the waterfall at the end of the trip. Was quite refreshing. Would recommend water shoes as the little fish were eating the little pieces of dry skin on the bottom of my feet which was weird. All in all a great day with great people and a beautiful country. My only regret is that I didn’t buy the poncho before heading into the rainforest.

    The overall trip was excellent,the guide was very knowledgeable and great fun. We felt very safe in the coach as the driver was very steady. Sadly my wife was unable to take part in most things because of recent knee surgery, but they happily refunded her charge when we pointed out that she was physically unable to climb down to the waterfall or use the thermal springs. All in all a great trip but you do need to be physically fit to make the most of it.

    This trip was one of the best things we have experienced. The driver to and from the border was energetic and fun to talk to. The tour guide in Nicaragua was FANTASTIC. Misael was so knowledgeable, friendly and so accommodating. He answered all of our questions - he even was kind enough to stop at a local fruit stand to let us try fresh local mangos! My 6 year old daughter had the best time seeing the sights, making chocolate, feeding monkeys, as well as seeing the active volcano. Nicaragua is a beautiful area. I recommend taking this tour - it is long but SO worth it. We wish we could see more.

    Hugo was a great guide on this tour. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed the stop for coffee and viewing the iguanas in filadelfia— a great way to start our morning. The river tour was fantastic, followed by a delicious visit to a soda for lunch and a pottery demonstration. A great day!

    We did the Palo Verde boat and Sloth discovery tours. The tour guides were great - very knowledgeable with answers to every question. The sloth tour was unbelievable - the sloths weren't just up in the trees - we met a sloth walking along the path, oh so very slowly and carefully! And birds, 400 yr old trees. We stopped by a mountain stream for a quick swim. On the boat tour we stopped by a worksite where men were digging up sand out of a river that would be used to make cement. they loaded the sand onto ox carts - for real!, pulled it up to a clearing and dumped it. A big backhoe then scooped it up and loaded it on a big 18-wheel truck. A real contrast of traditional and modern Costa Rica. CosTour is well worth fitting into your visit to Costa Rica. These tours are as close to seeing wild animals in their natural state as you can get.

    We recently enjoyed a Kuna Vela Private sailing tour for the 2nd time. So many times we enjoy something while travelling and decide to do it a 2nd time on a subsequent visit - and it just never seems to be as good as the first time. But, not this tour! We are so very glad to decided to do it again as it was just as perfect as the first time!

    Captain Israel has many, many years of experience, and it shows in his handling of the boat. And he's happy to share his knowledge of sailing & Costa Rica. First Mate Andres surely has an advanced degree in hospitality because we have never been taken better care of - we were downright spoiled! The food is made fresh and the drinks are plentiful. We never had to worry about having our camera at hand because Andres took so many great photos for us.

    Can't say enough about this tour - we highly recommend it. It was the highlight of our trip - again!

    This was such an unforgettable experience!!! Andrey was absolutely great made us feel comfortable straight away , he picked up right on time and the communication before hand was very helpful and prompt.
    Andrey was a great guide really informative about the REAL Costa Rica!!!
    What we really loved about Andrey’s tour was not only was this totally private he takes you to see beautiful locations that you would not usually experience on other tours .
    I advise anyone coming to Costa Rica to look up privatecostarica.com as Andrey has other amazing tours and is happy to tailor tours as he did for us .
    We loved our 3 mysterious waterfalls tour so much with Andrey we cancelled the other tours we already had booked and decided to book 2 additional tours with Andrey ( Rio Celeste and Arenal volcano) This was the best decision and totally changed our experience of Costa Rica . Due to our location in Guanacaste the Arenal volcano would have not been an option for us to do with other tour providers , which just goes to show how above and beyond Andrey went .
    We have had an unforgettable experience in Costa Rica !!!!!! Thank you Andrey

    We had a really nice time. The crew was very friendly and helpful, and we were able to snorkel and spend a little time on some great beaches. Our only regret was not booking for the whole day, but we waited until the last minute. Would go out with them again next time we’re in Costa Rica.

    We were able to zip line over water falls and rivers.Allowed me to see views that i have never seen before. We were able ATV through the jungle through trails that seems to be made just for us. Everything about this excursion was amazing. The only downfall was the long drive through bumpy back roads to get to the location. But id say that it was definitely worth it !!!

    Very beautiful. Water was cool at the waterfall but the springs were very warm. Food was also very good here.

    This was a fantastic way to spend the day but it’s also a work out! As you’ll do lots of walking and hiking up and down Different variation of heights, just a warning as I thought I was was in decent shape but my quads told me otherwise!!!
    Your guides will never leave you behind they’ll always wait for you there is no rush so take your time if you need to rest then rest. Zip lining was fantastic again they told us what exactly what to do they were with us the whole way never felt uncomfortable or scared it was just a lot of fun.
    We rode the horses for about a half an hour we did see a few animals along the way kind of cool lots of beautiful butterflies. After the horseback ride your hike for a good 10-15 minutes until you reach the waterfall and that is one heck of a hike so take your time and have good shoes on when you’re hiking don’t wear flip-flops!
    Once you reach the beautiful falls take some pictures and no you can’t get in the water. As you return from your hike you’ll go down to the mud baths and hot springs, we were given lockers and time to rest and use the restroom. Off to the steam hut for about several minutes to open up your pores and then you’ll go out and smear the volcanic miracle mud all over you and then you’ll wait a few minutes as it dries so you soak in all those healing minerals! Wash off and head to one of the relaxing hot springs. After a nice long soak we headed to our tractor pulling ride back to the restaurant for a great buffet lunch, with options for everyone.
