César and Juan Carlos were excellent guides and really nice guys. Doing a private tour was well worth the expense — it shaves off a lot of hiking on roads and takes you right to the good stuff.
We got to see lots of awesome flora and fauna, a lot of which we would have missed without guides — think birds, frogs, and cool plants. (Note to self: always do the guided experience.) We saw beautiful waterfalls, 3 of which we could swim in. The water was a super refreshing temperature and not too cold.
The hiking was fairly easy. My wife, who is 3 months into recovery for a ruptured achilles tendon, had an easy time. The tour culminated in a trip (driven, not walked) to the highest point of the property, where we could see all the way to the ocean. We ended the tour with one last dip in a waterfall and a delicious homemade lunch.
Do not hesitate to book this tour. 10/10 would do it again!
I loved the service, you feel really connected with nature and there are so many beautiful things to see in the hiking trails. I wanted to stay all day in the swimming holes and lunch made me feel home. Amazing experience.
Cesar, Juan Carlos, Carolina where knowledgeable, helpful and delightful guides on our fun safari tour in a family with ages 10 to 80.
The safari vehicle had comfy seats. Well maintained trails, some with rope or metal railings made the trek to the waterfalls more than doable for one and all.
Most fun of all was “wading” into the waterfall pools into the cool water. I’d recommend wearing cheapo water shoes on the rocky bottom. The kids loved jumping off the sides into the gushing water. The entire time, Cesar was on standby in case anyone needed assistance. But best of all was he took all sorts of photos and videos that he openly shared with us using “air drop.”
It certainly was a fun day for all of us.
We did this tour with our whole family, all nine of us, and it was amazing. We are not new to Costa Rica and have a home here. However, there was so much to see, to learn and taste that we will be back to do it again!! We went hiking in the jungle, saw magnificent waterfalls. Swam in a waterfall pool, had a gourmet lunch, and the best view of the area at a lookout point with delicious fresh guava and coconut milk! Our hosts are super special and so smart! Carolina and Caesar you are the best!!!
The guys were absolutely awesome. They were very educational and hospitable. They brought us to amazing views of the waterfalls and the hiking trail was very doable. Overall an amazing experience.
Cesar and Juan Carlos were excellent guides. We swam under waterfalls, had a delicious lunch, and got to learn all about the nature reserve. Highly recommend!
This was an amazing trip, I learned so much and had so much fun. Juan Carlos was a great guide! Highly recommend! Thanks so much team, it was unforgettable.
The staff was amazing! The attention and care to detail was phenomenal! Cesar was the best and the food was amazing.
Great tour! We really enjoyed our morning and afternoon with Cesar. We had the chance to see incredible sights in the jungle, jump in waterfalls, swim in refreshing pools, and take in beautiful ocean views.
The lunch was OUTSTANDING! Authentic home cooked Costa Rican food that included beef, black beans, rice, potatoes, and plantains. The meal was topped off with fresh coffee and local sweets.
Had a wonderful time in this Jungle Wonderland! Spectacular waterfalls and animals of all kinds. Loved it. A great place to take your whole family!
