Wildlife Excursion
SusanM_J, June 2022
Wonderful guide & driver. Very knowledgeable & entertaining as well as the raft guide & rainforest sloth guide. Would do again in a heartbeat.
Response from Host, July 2022
Thank you. Our English speaking naturalist guides are a treasure. They have all been with us many years and some of them are second generation guides for us. This is one of the best wildlife tours in Costa Rica for sloths and monkeys and an opportunity to see some of the beauty of the country and the gorgeous, breathtaking waterfall. The Corobici River is truly beautiful and we are happy that you were able to enjoy it. We will be proud to have you as a repeat client so please hurry back. Thank you again and PURA VIDA

BEST DAY EVER! We had rented a house in Playa Hermosa but Marco gladly picked us up at the hotel of our choice at 730am. From there we drove about an hour to the beautiful waterfall...approx 50 feet. Marco provided a lot of great FYI's about Costa Rica throughout the ride and had answers to any questions that we had. He is absolutely wonderful! Once we arrived at the waterfall we took a dip in the pool at the base of the fall (can't actually go under the falling water but close enough). Stayed there for about 30 min. Marco then drove us another 35 minutes to the river where we separated from him and went with the river tour guide. We floated down the river for about 90 minutes where we saw White Face Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, bats, crocodiles, lizards & several different types of birds & trees. It was so peaceful and relaxing. It is not white water rapids lol. It is very calm. After that we were taken to a cute restaurant where we met up with Marco again and had a traditional Tico lunch (chicken, rice, beans, plantain and of course, a beer). After eating Marco drove us in to the tropical forest to Bijagua Ranas where a tour guide took us around and saw several sloths (even one up close and a mama and baby up high in the trees), frogs, snakes, toucans, butterflies. Had some delicious coffee then headed back to Playa Hermosa (about 90 min drive back). TIPS: Bring tips for the individual guides (2nd & 3rd stop) and recommend shoes for the forest part. I would highly recommend this tour as it made out trip!

What a wonderful review of two of our most popular tours and congratulations on the huge amount of wildlife you sighted. Our guides definitely have the eye to spot everything and Marco is one of the best. He loves his country and is always so proud to show it off and relate the history to our visitors. I will make sure he sees your review and you can be sure he will be delighted. It is such a wonderful experience to see so many animals that are not in a cage and that is just one of the many things we all love about Costa Rica. For the food, that's what we call a "Casada" or plato del dia and what we all have for lunch so you fit right in. Hopefully you will return soon, we look forward to your return. Thank you again & "PURA VIDA"
Relaxing and natural

Rene and Cevi were wonderful tour guides. Super informative and very generous. Saw monkeys, lizards, crocodiles and many bird species on the raft. Not the time of year for sloths which is why I got this but it was still great nonetheless. The waterfall was breathtakingly awesome.
Response from Host, Jan 2020
Thank you for your review. We were not connected in Costa Rica during this time so never saw the review until now. We have operated scuba diving, adventure tours such as sunset cruise, ATV tours, Wildlife observation tours, honeymoons and vacation packages throughout Costa Rica since 1970. If there is ever anything we can assist you with concerning Costa Rica, it will be our pleasure Thank you again and please hurry back to see the sloths. PURA VIDA
