Breath-taking to fully experience the splendors of Costa Rica. Guide “Hector” was extremely informative and ensured everyone was comfortable and have an amazing experience. He also is a pro at getting the proper angles for taking photos for you. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone vacationing in Costa Rica and Hector enhanced the experience. *****

Rio Celeste waterfall, getting into the water would have made it even more impressive but didn’t get that tour, worth the wait in line once arrive at the national park. Sloth Sanctuary was informative got to see several sloths but the were napping up in the trees.

The tour was amazing. Adriel our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I really liked that we were a small group with only 7 of us. The waterfalls were gorgeous but be prepared for an uphill hike and lots of stairs to the Rio Celeste Waterfall. After lunch, we saw howler monkeys, sloths, and tree frogs. I definitely recommend this tour.

Ronnie was such a great tour guide! He was great and made us feel comfortable when a group of older men were staring and taking videos of other girls in our tour and he took us to another spot to make us feel better. He also
