Long day but worth it! Rainforest is must-see

Really glad we made the trek to see the rainforest. The waterfall is just stunning. Hiking in the national park to reach the waterfall is not as rugged as it sounds...most of the way is a paved path. There are a lot of stairs down to the waterfall and, of course, back up from it (I think it was 253 stairs, over 500 round trip, with a place or two you can stop and catch your breath/take photos). The stairs stay wet so having some good tread on your shoes is helpful. Sloth sanctuary was fun. We saw several sloths way up high in the trees but they have these great tripod viewers so you can see them up close too. You can even put your phone up to it for pics. We saw tiny little frogs, a toucan plus other creatures, etc. It was beautiful and just down the road from the national park. Lunch was great and has a beautiful view of the volcano mountain w/ surrounding area. Then finished the day at the 2nd waterfall where you can get in the water if you want. Short path down to this waterfall. There's a place to change if you didn't wear your swimsuit or if you want dry clothes before heading home. The trip home was where things went awry. Our hotel was a bit off the beaten path so we were first to be picked up (5:45am) and of course last to be dropped off. There's a meet-up point on the way to/from where you join up with various other excursion groups. One of the groups was about an hour late returning. This made the long day way longer than it should have been. We weren't back at our hotel until after 8pm. It was worth it but really frustrating to be at the mercy of other tour groups, especially on top of the extra distance to our hotel. It would be nice if the pickup/dropoff order was reversed, especially given the circumstances of one tour mismanaging the return time.

Our guide Jorge and driver Paolo were fantastic. The sloth park was great and our guide there was able to point out several sloths, monkeys, and frogs. Well worth the time and money for this tour.

Our tour guide Hector was super knowledgeable and made the hike through the jungle to the waterfall extraordinary! We indulged in authentic Costa Rican food and ended the tour in a beautiful swim at the base of another waterfall! Exceptional communication along the whole trip!
