Customer Reviews

I did the 2 in 1 Safari Float and La Fortuna Waterfall. It was an amazing experience. So peaceful as we went on the Safari Float, we were the only ones there. Our guilde spotted lots of lizards, a few different kinds of birds and a large family of monkeys. Then we had snack prepared by a local family. It's a little restaurant that they have at there house, nicely decarated with iguanas, birds, cows, and horses roaming around. A true Costa Rica cultural experience. Then we headed to La Fortunate waterfall, it was so beautiful, well worth the short hike, there were children and older adults there so you can do it 😊. Our guide gave us plenty of time to take pictures, swim or just relax by the water. Bring water/hiking shoes. After that we headed to Restaurante Tiquicia for lunch. The food was so delicious. I just wanted to keep eating although I was full. All of that was included in my package . They exceeded my expectations and I had a great time. If you are gonna be in this area you have to do this tour. You will get more than your money's worth. Go for it!!!

Carlos is very knowledgeable and helped us spot many animals along the float ride, including sloth, howler monkeys, porcupine, and many kinds of birds. The local snack and lunch were both very good as well. The car ride was good and the car was kept spotless and in perfect condition. Kudos to the driver Edgar. It was a great and unique experience overall. Thank you!
