What People Are Saying About La Fortuna
It's almost all day long trip but totally worth the time. You get to see much more than just a boat trip. Guide on the way there and back provides so much info it's like you get second trip of sights seeing for free :)
I would recommend this hike to anyone, a truly magical experience! Hike was fun and muddy, sights were breathtaking. Definitely recommend hiking boots with traction due to mud. Also recommend checking with weather because going during of after rain would be pointless as you would not be able to see the colors. Our guide spoke perfect english and provided us with water, chocolate, fruit and an amazing lunch. He was super knowledgeable, taught us a lot and easily answered any questions we had. Could not have asked for a more perfect experience!
A brilliant tour to see some of the highlights of Arenal. Joshua was a great guide - very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He pointed out loads of wildlife we would never have seen on our own. The trip to a local farm was a highlight - Antonio and his family were so friendly and welcoming despite the language barrier.
The hanging bridge tour was a great experience. Our tour guide, Hansel, was very knowledgeable, affable, and simply put, a very good tour guide. The rainforest was amazing!!!
We enjoyed the rapelling and rafting excursions. We rapelled in the cool, refreshing water of the canyon. Be warned that there are slippery rocks so hiking sandals with good traction are a must. Also, the hike back up was steep, so you must be moderately fit and healthy. The good thing was that there were stepping stones. The Balsa River rafting tour was exhilarating; there were plenty of class 2 & 3 rapids which made it exciting. Just when you thought you can let your guard down, the river starts boiling and rumbling again. We were able to clean off the river water in 4 outdoor showers (cold water only) and there were a few private changing rooms. At the end of our adventure, a generous plate of casada (black beans and rice) with veggies, yucca, two pieces of braised chicken and relish was served to us. We also got a chance to sample shots of moonshine and see how brown sugar was made from harvested sugar cane. We had a great time. Highly recommended.
