Our trip was with Mario....
Sylvia_W, Mar 2023
Our trip was with Mario. He is a very nice guide with great humor. So it was a blast talking with him and listening to his explanation about the parks.
The views are worth the hikes
Alicia_R, Mar 2023
A lot of steps and hiking but worth the views. Amazing experience. Pablo and Jieinyr( probably spelling his name wrong) we're the absolute best. He was spotting things and explaining so much. It was AMAZING!!!
Xuan_H, Mar 2023
Our tour guide, Pablo and driver, Jeiner from 7 Tours were awesome! Super informative and full of personality! They made our experience so memorable.
Great option for a short trip!

I’d recommend this tour! My friend and I only had 2 days in la Fortuna and this gets a lot of the “big” sights in one day. It’s a long-ish day but not particularly strenuous. - The hanging bridges were cool and I just personally, love being in the jungle :). There’s paved paths in this part and lots of tourists, but you’ll be one of them, so embrace it! - the waterfall was cool and massive. The viewpoint before you walk down is beautiful too. We chose not to swim because it has gotten a little chilly/rainy. Tons of steps but wasn’t too bad, saw plenty of older people doing it. Best part was having lunch here, it was delicious. - the volcano hike was my favorite part. You can’t go to the crater of the volcano (no one can) but you get to a nice viewpoint. Really not a strenuous hike but I’m a fairly fit 35 y/o. -Kenya was such a kind and knowledgeable guide, I’d highly suggest her! One thing that could have been better was a prep list of what to bring or wear. My friend and I were wearing shorts, had brought bathing suits, and chaco sandals for water and light hiking just based on the tour description. Turns out no one really knew what to bring (a couple didn’t realize they’d need a bathing suit/that the waterfall was swim-able), we didn’t think to wear closed toed shoes etc. (chacos are meant to be hiked in for moderate hikes so we thought this would be perfect for a tour that involved water and hiking) they really need to give you a better idea of what to bring. Last thing is that you should definitely book a tour in this area. A friend was there before and tried to do a self-tour and did not have a good experience. I recommend this tour as an option!!
Best of Arenal in one day
Konstantinos_K, Mar 2023
The tour was perfectly organized. Pick up on time. Our guide/driver Kenia was very well informed, showed us many animals, even outside the parks and helped us taking photos through the telescope. We would absolutely recommend the tour to everyone!
Arize_L, Feb 2023
The guide was informative, helpful and considerate. The tour showcased Costa Rica's nature and vibrancy well.
Kenya was so...
Laureen_S, Feb 2023
Kenya was so knowledgeable and cheerful, great guide. The waterfalls were amazing as were the hanging bridges. Thank you!!
Fun day
Rob_G, Feb 2023
The hanging bridges and we saw a family of monkeys swinging the treetops! Mario was a very knowledgeable and fun guide!
Great trip for a solo traveler
Andrea_V, Jan 2023
Mario was the most fabulous guide, and we had great group of strangers who became friends. I'm travelling solo in Costa Rica, and this was a perfect tour for me. I loved everything we did.
Great tour
Lawrence_H, Jan 2023
Mario was an amazing tour guide and would highly recommend him as yours too. Very knowledgeable about every aspect of our tour and a pleasure to be around.
Must do for experiencing the best that La Fortuna has to offer!
Danielle_B, Jan 2023
We had an amazing time on this tour! Would highly recommended for any age. Is very active and requires a lot of walking. We did with young children and my parents. Was great for everyone. The waterfall was the highlight for us!
Adventure-filled day
Wendy_R, Dec 2022
This was a really fun day! First we went to the hanging bridges, which were similar to the ones in Monteverde. Then we hiked to the La Fortuna Waterfall, which was beautiful, but be prepared for a lot of steps. We had a very good lunch at a nice restaurant right near the waterfall. And then we hiked on the Arenal Volcano which was a unique experience. We had a shared tour and met very nice people - shout out to our new friends from Rhode Island and England! Kenya, the tour guide, was great. I wish I had known to wear sneakers but bring water shoes and a towel for the waterfall. I also should have brought a rain jacket since we could easily leave things on the bus. Don’t forget sunscreen and insect repellent. Have fun- this was a great way to see a lot of different things in aone day.
Disappointing day
michael_m, Dec 2022
Disappointing I waited on the street for 90 minutes to be picked up. Pick up was to be at 8. Transport arrived at 9.30!!! I phoned twice and on both occasions I was told we’re having trouble with the car and we’ll be there in 10 minutes. I phone 30 minutes later and it’s the same story. Trouble with the car and I’ll be there in 10 minutes. The places we visited were all outstanding but it was a very bad start to the day. The group was a mixed English and Spanish group but the guide would speak for 5 minutes in Spanish and just one or two sentences. Mind you I was the only English speaker so I guess she had to speak more to the others but that didn’t help me. Then finally just as we reached the volcano down came the rain. Now I know you can’t help that but here’s the thing. It started raining at 4.30. We were to have finished our tour at 4.30 but we finished at 6pm because we were 90 minutes late in the morning. So in other words we would not have been affected by the rain if we had started at 8 o’clock instead of 9.30. So it was a very disappointing day.
La Fortuna Combo Tour!
Nancy_I, Dec 2022
This was a great experience for our family with teenage kids. We loved the whole day. Our kid who is scared of heights did great on the swinging bridges, and we handled the 500 steps to the waterfall with no problem (totally worth it). The lunch was excellent too. This tour was great if you want an overview of different areas of La Fortuna! Our guides Pablo and Mario did a great job!
Magnificent tour with Mario!
Heidi_G, Dec 2022
Wonderful tour - saw monkeys, snakes, frogs and lots of birds! Our tour guide Mario was so awesome - was funny and knowledgeable - made the experience! We ended up running into him at Rio Celeste the next day!
Awesome tour!
Miguel_L, Dec 2022
Guide Pablo was awesome. Your was great, hits all the best spots and lunch is good! Hanging bridges was my favorite.
Recommended tour if you go to La Fortuna
Ivan_P, Dec 2022
The tour is incredible, I highly recommend it. The person who was our guide, Kenia, dominated the topics she talked about: flora, fauna and history of Costa Rica. In addition to the fact that Kenya has an incredible view to find animals, we were able to see a great variety of them thanks to the fact that she located them easily
Very enjoyable day with a wonderful guide
Donna_H, Nov 2022
We had a great day on the tour. I was a little worried that my physical health may not have been the best for this tour but it was a nice day and not overly strenuous. The steps back up from the water at the waterfall is a bit strenuous but take your time and take quick rests on the way back up. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and very funny. We enjoyed this tour a lot. At the end of the day we hit the hot springs at our resort and all of us agreed it was well worth it. Pura Vida
Kenya our tour guide was...
