Our best days in Costa Rica were spent with Rain Forest Explorers!
Oct 2021
We spent two days with Rain Forest Explorers on our trip to Costa Rica. We did the River Safari Float, La Fortuna Waterfall, Volcano Hike, Hanging Bridges, and Chocolate Tour. Rainforest Explorers is the best tour company in Costa Rica. All interactions with Rain Forest Explorers were superb. Yuliana assisted me with booking and payments, she also provided some good information regarding the tours. All four of our guides (Fran, Mau, Mario, and Edgardo) were knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. They handled everything for us, everything was effortless from when we arrived at the van. I learned so much from all of them on our trip to Costa Rica. Also, I just felt so relaxed, they didn't rush us, they allowed us to set our own pace, and they made sure we had the best time in Costa Rica. Lunch... Lunch at the family farm was the best meals we had in Costa Rica. You can tell these people are passionate about what they do and they desire to share it with you. Seriously, they made our trip spectacular. Our best days in Costa Rica were spent with Rain Forest Explorers!

Exceeded All My Expectations!!
If you want an authentic, informative, and fun excursion, go with Rainforest Explorers. We did two days with them…chocolate tour, hanging bridges, safari raft trip, water fall, and volcano hike. All of these were amazing. Our guides Michael and David were awesome! We learned a ton AND had so much fun!! Between activities we were treated with fresh fruit grown from the family farm and a delicious lunch prepared and eaten there as well. I felt like I was visiting relatives in Costa Rica from the hospitality, kindness, and true Costa Rican food. I would use Rainforest Explorers, a family business, again and again. Thank you to Edgardo for our informative chocolate tour and for keeping us safe driving all over the countryside. We enjoyed meeting everyone and were truly sad to say goodbye. Thank you Rainforest Explorers for a trip of a life time!!! Susan and Julia

If you only do one thing in Costa Rica, hire this company and do this excursion!
Jun 2021
THIS IS A MUST DO, WITH THIS GROUP! Yuliana the owner is the most amazing person ever, and her operating principles carry through the whole organization. Our guides were truly incredible. And the lunch! Oh my goodness the lunch! It was worth the time just to experience the lunch including homemade corn tortillas like nothing I've had in my life, This is a small family operation and they clearly put their heart in every aspect of what they do. If you are looking for a touristy-type organization, don't waste their time and call someone else. My whole family of five agreed this was the best part of our 13 day Costa Rica vacation. Our guide Hanzel (I'm sure I spelled it wrong) even recognized the love my wife has for sloths and was able to get us up close and personal with a mom and her baby. I'm telling you, if you go to Costa Rica you must do this tour with this group. Also as a reviewer I believe I should also give constructive feedback. Literally the only thing that was not expected was that we were advised we'd be home by 4:30 and instead got home at about 5:30. This was clearly our fault because of our interest in so many things about their business and the dedication of all of them to make time for whatever we needed. So I share that not as a complaint but instead more as a tip that if you book with them don't plan on coming back on time as they will do whatever is needed to to make your trip amazing. Tip #2: Before they bring lunch advise them you'd like extra tortillas. Trust me, you'll want more than one!

This was a great experience from start to finish. Transportation was on time, tours and people were exceptional, and the lunch was the best meal we had in Costa Rica. Everyone was so nice and friendly but you don’t feel like just another tourist dollar. Guides were funny and very personable plus spoke very good English which was great for a gringo with limited Spanish. They seem to love what they do, are proud to show off their country, and do a great job making you feel welcome and appreciated. Could not see anyone doing it better and could not recommend Rainforest Explorers more.

Had an amazing day with this tour company. Spent the day with Hansel who took all the time we wanted and needed to see everything. Went on the safari raft tour, waterfall, and Arenal volcano hike. He was so good at spotting wildlife and knowledgeable about volcanoes. Also the plants and flowers. So enjoyable and friendly!!! Wonderful tour day!!

He made sure that everyone was engaged and enjoyed the tour. They both exceeded our expectations. Also, the lunch was the best meal we had in the country. Thank you.

Dec 2019 • Couples
This 3 in 1 adventure exceeded expectations. We were able to see all sorts of wildlife including monkeys, sloths, frogs, and many birds. Our guide, Carlos, and our driver, Edgar, were welcoming and made us feel like family. I learned so much about Costa Rica, Arenal, and the critters that call it home. We would be driving like normal and somehow Carlos would see a sloth in the trees in the distance from the road; most people would have just seen a small ball in the distance. He would get out, bring out his scope so we could get a good view and take pictures. How incredible! A mid morning snack and lunch were provided - both being amazingly delicious with traditional Costa Rican cuisine. The boat and volcano hike were pretty easy, but make sure you get ready for the waterfall because there are so many steps and swimming in the area directly underneath the waterfall is a great exercise. Each tour group is no more than 9 or 10 people so it’s more intimate (my husband and I were the only ones for the boat part which made it my favorite). If you do one excursion in Arenal this should be it!!

3 in 1 Safari float, La Fortuna Waterfall and Volcano Hike
We went on this tour as two families of 4 in July. I can’t say enough great things about this tour company! We had such a fantastic day! We saw so many animals and learned a lot about the local people and culture. Michael, our main guide, was so great interacting with the teens and adults both, also finding wildlife and helping us get great views and pictures with his binoculars. We got great pictures of sloths and toucans thanks to Michael! Our driver Edmund was wonderful and we loved having lunch at his wonderful home, the food was the definitely the best local fare we had the entire trip. We also had Edgar as a guide on our float and he too was wonderful. We learned so much and enjoyed every minute of it. Oh, I don’t want to forget the home we stopped at for coffee and snacks-that was really fun and unique as well. The entire day was a pleasant surprise for the both families.

Best Tour Organization Ever
My family did the 4 in 1 tour with the River Safari, La Fortuna Waterfall, Arenal Hike and ended with EcoTermales hot springs. The staff exceeded all expectations from planning to drop off. Yuliana answered all my questions via email in the weeks leading up to trip and even changed the date of our tour while we were traveling. Thank you Yuliana!

We got picked up at 6:45am for the most amazing day. Hansel was our guide and Edgar was our driver. I cannot say enough about how great they both were. Hansel had amazing English skills and taught us some Spanish throughout the day. Be sure to ask Hansel how he got good at English. Edgar was a terrific driver that made us feel safe with our children along for the adventure. Hansel and Edgar stayed with us throughout the day.

We started with the river safari and saw lots of wildlife including sloths and four different troops of howler monkeys. Baby howler monkeys are so cute. A very safe float. That is another thing I really appreciated about Rainforest Explorers you could tell that safety really matters to them. Traveling with children this really put us at ease. They even ask about food allergies and medical conditions. Very well run organization.

After the float we had some coffee, fruit and snacks at beautiful farm. The food was amazing. Be sure to look at the big iguanas in the back.

Next we did the La Fortuna waterfall. Swimming in the waterfall was exhilarating and not as cold as I thought it would be. The walk back up is not as bad as it sounds. We went at a leisurely pace and it took about ten minutes. Then we had an amazing lunch at Edgar’s place. One of the best meals of our trip.

Next we headed over to Volcano Arenal. Edgar even stopped in La Fortuna so I could get a picture of the church with Arenal in the background. Thank you Edgar! Now we had an amazing hike with Hansel on the 1968 lava flow trial. Hansel is the best tour guide I’ve ever had. Great personality and very knowledgeable. He also takes great pictures. He even knows how to take silly panoramic photos with an iPhone. :)

At last we relaxed in the hot springs of EcoTermales which was the perfect way to end the day. Rainforest Explorers let us pick the time we wanted to be driven home. Around 8pm we were back at the hotel and finished with the best and most memorable day of our trip so far.

I can not recommend Rainforest Explorers enough!!!

Great tours and incredible food
Jun 2019 • Family
The tours are great and well paced. All fine for any age 5 or 6 and above thought you have to be in decent shape and no leg , mobility, or heart issues . Each stop they provided snacks and coffee and water. Fresh fruits were great. The lunch was 20 minutes away in a village but was incredibly good and basically was a great place to hang out for a while on the porch in rocking chairs also . The rainforest and waterfall hike were a trek down and up but well worth it. They are a first class family run crew all around . Staff really good with kids.
