The tour is incredible, 100% recommended. You can take some impressive photos of the Arenal volcano and the La Paz waterfall. During the trip, our guide Juan, helped us to portray several sloths and iguanas, the whole trip was very friendly and very attentive. To end the trip, they take you to relax in the hot springs, which is one of the essential activities you have to do while in Costa Rica.
Basically everything in the description. Our guides name was Juan who met all out expectations. Got home a little later than expected but if it meant more time at the hot tub, im not complaining. I did not do the zip line however some of the people we met did. Juan offered a last minute sign up offer if you change your mind.
Great trip despite the fact that we didn't see the volcano. The guide told us that 90% of the time, the volcano is hidden behind the clouds. We saw beautiful birds and iguanas and the hot springs were amazing.
Overall was a great experience and our guide, Kenneth, was very professional and attentive. Highly recommend the trip.
Good sights....Long driving although it's unavoidable.
