We provide tours with a dynamic team of experienced local guides who will make the tours interesting, enriching and with great fun. We can make up any package suitable to your needs, including transportation, accommodations and various tours throughout Costa Rica; however we are specialized in the Caribbean area. Some of the tours provided are:- Adventure tours; such as canopy, Jungle adventure and horseback riding. - Animal watching tours; such as snorkeling, animal watching and hiking in a national park. - Cultural tours; such as Cacaco farm tour, Indian reserve, Sloth hospital and rescue centers. - Trips to other destinations; such as Panama City and Bocas del Toro in Panama, Tortuguero turtle reserve, Arenal Volcano and many other destinations all over Costa Rica. Safety is a must for us! Therefore we have all the certifications and insurance from the Costa Rica tourism board as well as all the other insurances needed. We operate out of Puerto Viejo, which is a small town located at the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. It is rich in nature and culture.

It includes protected areas such as Cahuita National Park and the Gandoca-Manzanillo Refuge. Recently Puerto Viejo has become a tourist’s hot spot, due to the, white-sand beaches, tropical vegetation and the relaxing laidback atmosphere!

My boyfriend and I booked the canopy zip lining excursion and had a wonderful time. The views were great and it was definitely fun for us thrill seekers. The tour guides were very helpful and had lots of information about the environment and local property. Definitely do the Tarzan swing, even if you're a little scared, it is so worth it! One guide did it without even being connected to the rope. Make this a must-do when in Puerto Viejo :)

“Well organized, good guides but a bit too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

We booked only one day in advance. It was already raining and we were told, that if it kept raining, the adventure day would not take place.

We booked following activities: quad (ATV), canopy with Tarzan and Superman, crossing rivers and canyioning. We had a very nice guide who paid attention to the security details and who explained us a lot about the animals, the trees and so on. Unfortunately, not all the information he gave us was correct.

We had luck and while driving the quads, we had to stop because a 2 toe sloth was crossing the street. It was an amazing experience seeing so close.

It has been raining all night but the woman said, it would be funnier. Actually it was a challenge, as we already started wet until the bone. Canopy with so much rain is not so fun, we could not do due to security reasons the superman or the tarzan, no canyoning was recommended... So instead of an adventure day of 6 hours, we had to shorten to 4 inclusive lunch.

I liked very much the agency, they are really professional but:
- I expect all guides to give correct information for example about sloths, guys, you have there the Rescue Centre which provides best information!
- If I am not allowed to cancel the trip although is raining cats and dogs,, don't tell me is going to be fun, when actually is going to hurt

“Awesome zipline from Puerto Viejo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

the tour was fantastic! The staff was friendly and funny and seemed to enjoy their job. They took care of our 11 year old to make sure she was comfortable before sending her down. The primary jungle was really amazing and the heights of the ziplines were breathtaking. I did one other tour in Costa Rica that was fine, but these guys really made it fun. I saw the one bad review, and I'm really surprised. They were very safety conscious with us, but they also let us push it. something my family appreciated. You need some amount of coordination and fitness. There are steep climbs up awesome tree root steps. And the ziplines are fast - something you want if you are doing this kind of thing. If you want a gentle, easy going jungle tour, don't do ziplines. Love these guys! Oh yea - sweet as candy fresh fruit and cold water at the end - perfect!

We arrived with a group of 6 3 couples all in there late 40's and 50's for the zip line repealing trip. I had already been on 3 zip line tours in Coatsa Rica and this was by far the best, the guides were very helpful and let us set our own pace, we will be back in the future.Pura Vida.
