What a great way to experience the Arenal region. The Hanging Bridges park has done an excellent job of making a very inaccessible area a very easy hike. But ask for Julio Mendez to be your guide. He can spot things that you would never find, and he has a great knowledge base to explain what he finds.

We took 2 tours with Jacamar Naturalist Tours, the Hanging Bridges Tour and the Safari Float tour. A big shout out to Alberto, Julio and Jairo for all of the information they gave us about the animals and horticulture of Costa Rica. I wished we were there longer so I could do more!

My husband and I recently took a trip to Costa Rica and did 2 excursions through this company, The first was the Arenal Volcano and Tabacon Hot Springs combo. The only downside to this tour was that the weather was very cloudy and foggy, so our view of the volcano was obstructed. What completely made up for it was the Tabacon Hot Springs - absolutely beautiful. They are a series of hot springs, set right in the rain forest so the surroundings are lush, beautiful vegetation. It rained on and off, and we honestly couldn't have cared less because of the absolutely beautiful natural surroundings. Another highlight was meeting and visiting with our tour guide - Julio Cesar Guadamuz. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Julio, as his knowledge on the wildlife, nature (and pretty much anything Costa Rica has to offer) was incredible, and his mastery of the English language and extensive vocabulary were amazing. A very personable and approachable guide, very easy to visit with as well. His passion for the outdoors was evident throughout the entire trip. HIghly recommend this tour (and guide!)

Highly recommend this tour and if you can, ask for Pedro. Pedro led us thru the tree canopies on well marked trails and over numerous hanging bridges. We saw lots of monkeys plus some members of the reptile family and lots of beautiful foliage. With each find, Pedro was always excited to explain it to us in excellent English. He was knowledgeable and friendly.
