THANK YOU for being part of our first trip to such a gorgeous country! The tour was jam-packed with different stops and activities, even if they were short, and allowed for plenty of restroom and coffee breaks. Juan hustled tirelessly, ensuring that we were on schedule despite a small setback in the beginning (Costa Rica doesn't use addresses in the way that some countries do, so it was harder to find our hostel, but the tour manager was accessible by phone and willing to help us out too). So did all the boys working the ziplines - what they did was tough work but they were so friendly and experienced. To clarify the drop-off policy, if you plan to stay in La Fortuna at the end, let the tour company know in advance where your hotel is, and they will drop you off there as long as it's near the center of town. Just remind your driver after the hot springs. You'll miss out on dinner which is too bad only because all the food was a 10/10, but overall, we have no regrets about booking!
Booked this tour on GetYourGuide in San Jose. Was such a nice day tour out of San Jose. Juan speaks very good English and was a great guide, he was attentive, friendly, helpful but also respected our own space. Monteverde was amazing - there was a local guide who led us on the hike and he was very knowledgable and the hanging bridges and the the rainforest were simply breath taking. Other people on the tour were super friendly and nice too. The lunch was at a really nice restaurant providing high quality local cuisine. Not like a typical tourist spot. This is a must-go experience!
Our driver was local and very knowledgeable. We saw the waterfalls, watched birds, ziplines, repelled, dat in hot springs and ate great local cuisine. An amazing day seeing the mountains and valleys during the drive. We even saw sloths and iguanas. I recommend this tour. Even the ziplining Instructors were patient and amazing
We did and saw so much. I like the order of things, it starts out slow with waterfalls, and birds, and meals. And then the energy level spikes with zip-lining, and then cools with the hot springs. We also took advantage of the La Fortuna drop-off and stayed there for the night.
Karina was the hanging bridges guide, and she was great. She went out of her way to spot bugs, monkeys, butterflies, humming birds, etc. What we didn't know was our tour bus was split between activities, and our driver seemed put-out that this causes confusion.
