“Exhilarating and Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

I spent a week at a nearby yoga retreat, working hard. This was pure fun and what a great afternoon it was! Our guide was Michael and we enjoyed hiking through the jungle, spotting wildlife, learning about the ecology, scampering up a stream and of course, climbing the huge strangler fig and jumping off into the canopy. I would recommend this outing to anyone!

“Highlight of Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We spent half a day exploring the rain forest, waterfalls and tree climbing with Everyday Adventures. We were so fortunate to have Andy as our guide. He was outstanding - extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and personable from the minute we arrived. We would highly recommend the experience to anyone visiting the Puerto Jimenez area!

“One of the best experience of Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We took the tree climbing tour.

We were staying in Puerto Jimenez (about 5.5 hrs drive from San Jose) -- south west of San Jose. South west is one of the beautiful areas of Costa Rica. This is the place if you want to take day or multi-day trekking tour in Corcovado National Park (Rain forest),

Anyways, tree clibming tour is located in Cabo Matapalo. It is about 20km (an hour drive from Puerto Jimenez) on the way to Corcovado Nation Park. It is beautify rustic drive -- gravel road with some creeks on the way. You need a 4 wheel drive to cross these creeks. They will give you directions when you sign up. Also, you can use GPS (which is a must if you are driving in Costa Rica).

Andy (owner) was our guide. He is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to flora and fauna. Also, he is very humorous person. You will definitely get impressed with his knowledge. It is a nice walk to the fig tree which is about 70 ft high to climb. You will get an harness for safety. There are a couple or more different ways to climb depending upon your stamina/agility. When you climb up there, you will get nice panoramic gulf coast view. After you catch a little breath (if you happened to take difficult roots to climb), you can jump to about mid way and then swing like Tarzan for while. And then, you will be gradually descended to ground.

Also, there is nice stream and waterfall on the way. There is also an option for Water rappelling if you have time/interest in combination with tree climbing.

On the whole it was a fresh and memorable experience. In case, if you are going with family and one of you decided not to take tree climb, you can do so. It is still worth it as the trek itself is beautiful.

I strongly recommend it for both kids and adults alike.

“Best experience of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

My kids (ages 8 and 10) and husband participated in the strangler fig climb. What an experience. I went along for the hike and was very happy I did. Andy was our guide and so knowledgeable about the area and the living world around us- it was truly educational. The climb itself was amazing to watch and received the highest ratings from all that climbed. Andy was safe, encouraging and fun! The kids repeatedly said this was their favorite part of our 2 week trip. We have already been talking about the next adventure we will do with Everyday Adventures when we return!

“Excellent exploring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Some of the best adventures in Costa Rica. It's amazing how a knowledgeable guide can enhance any experience. We wanted to do the climb tree & waterfall rappel, but got so much more. A true learning experience. Ask questions & gets sincere, knowledgable answers. Wonderful!
