The rainforest was...
Lori_S, Apr 2022
The rainforest was beautiful! Got to see sloths up close and a bunch of other wild life! The guides gave helpful info about the species of animals along the way.
Best experience of my life

We did this tour with Eithel. He is the absolute best!!!! He went out of his way to make sure we got the best of the day and even stopped at a souvenir spot for us before taking us back to the hotel. This place was breathtaking!!! The hike up is not for everyone, I would say active to moderately active but it’s worth every aching sore the next day. Beautiful rainforest, you forget how small you actually are in the world. At the end we got to see a viper, poisonous frogs, and a sloth so close up! Toucans were plenty but so active.
Exceptional rainforest tour with lots of sloth sightings!

Miller was an amazing tour guide & we had such an amazing time on this excursion! The waterfalls were gorgeous, with plenty of howler monkeys to see & hear! We chose not to take a swim, but definitely would have been fun! The best part of our trip was walking through the rainforest, we saw so many amazing creatures, each fully explained by Miller or Daniel, our other forest guide. We saw 4 sloths & they were quite active too! It was great to see them up close in their own environment. Our guides were just as excited to see everything & take photos just like us.. it really showed how proud they are and how much they love their country. I mean, it’s paradise, how could you not? Our lunch at a local soda was delicious! We loved sharing a meal with Miller & exploring a nearby butterfly garden full of Morphos butterflies too, the local food was amaaaazing. Miller was an exceptional guide & truly made for a great day, definitely worth so much more than what we paid! Thanks again Miller, you’re the best! 😊
Great tour

This was a terrific private tour. The guides were excellent and willing to make changes to the itinerary to accommodate health needs. The tour was informative and the guides gave us a lot of information about Costa Rican history. The waterfalls were beautiful but be prepared to hike up a lot of steps. We saw several sloths and even saw one up close on the ground! It was an amazing day.
Get your best memories here!

Our guide Miller was a delight! We had so much fun with him and he worked hard to give us a tremendous experience. We saw active sloths, lots of monkeys, poison dart and red eyed tree frogs, three different toucan species and lots of tanagers and other beautiful birds. Our forest walk in the tree tops was misty and otherworldly and the reserve owners were kind and warm. Lunch at La Amistad was way off the beaten path but so worth it! Quaint and rustic setting with seriously local home cooked food. Just what we wanted! We loved seeing the rainbow eucalyptus wow wow! The greatest memory will be meeting CR folks in all our stops. They were so friendly and happy to have us. Pura vida!
