A great place to stop and enjoy the view while eating authentic local food. This is a four hour tour and worked well for seniors like us. We got to see more of the country. They took good care of us! Just a TIP if you’re getting picked up in Jaco. The instructions say to meet at the Al Frente Subway restaurant on Pastor Diaz. Adventure Tours is actually across the street from Subway behind the gym. They need to change their instructions on the website to avoid confusion. Have fun…we did!"..."

He went out of his way to locate animals (sloths, monkeys, birds, reptiles, turtles…)that were hidden and tucked away and gave us plenty of extra info about each one. Stopping at the beach was a plus and lunch was delightful and tasty! Thank you, Odyssey Adventures and especially Carlos (aka Charlie!) for a memorable day!"..."
