Amazing guide errol
Apr 2021 • Friends
Errol was the most amazing guide ever. He was so thoughtful and knowledgable. He actually spotted a sloth, an owl, a red frog and more all in the same day! It felt like a private tour. We went on the hanging bridge tour&arenal observatory at the same day and we wouldn’t miss it for the world. Definitely a must when visiting la fortuna. Don’t forget to ask for guide Errol!!! Made our tour just perfect.
The driver Nano was making us feel super comfortable as well.
Wouldn’t miss this experience in the world.

Our tour guide Erol was so awesome! Kind, funny, and informative, he really made the tour what it was! The views on the hike and experience in the hot springs was incredible, but doing these activities without a guide, we would’ve missed out in so much history and knowledge that Erol shared with us. Booking was easy, walked right into the storefront and booked the same day!

Arenal Observatory & Hot Springs with Raul!
Originally we booked a volcano hike & hot springs tour, but due to weather conditions they were unable to take us on the volcano hike so they offered us a trip to the Arenal Observatory instead for free!

It ended up being a blessing in disguise as our tour guide Raul B. was truly amazing. Our entire tour group had a blast and Raul was very attentive and informative. He truly embodies the Pura Vida lifestyle and energy. 10/10 would recommend.

amazing guide on an amazing tour
Jun 2019
feb 2019 - We received a lot of intesting information - we stopped on the ride to the observatory lodge to spot a persizoso - the guide did the utmost to let us see as much as possible - at the parking place we already spot the coati - we got the chance to swim for a moment in the pool of the waterfall - Wilmer kept the spirit in everyone nevertheless it was raining very hard from the start - the views we got were amazing - he even got a surprise in the warm water pool - it was fun from beginning till the end - we would love to do it again with this nice and experienced guide - gracias amigo ! hasta la proxima !

Great afternoon/evening tour
Feb 2020 • Family
Our guide Wilmar was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about the area, very patient and friendly. The scenery was beautiful and we saw animals I wouldn’t have spotted on my own. The hot spring was a great way to end the hike complete with a volcano mud face mask and a drink. Our 5 year old was able to keep up although we did walk quite a bit in the forest.

Super Dooper Fun Run In The Sun Son
Jan 2020 • Couples
Full day! Full of fun! And animals! Our guide Edwin, aka Rambo 5, was great. Knew about all the plants. If we are stuck in the jungle we would be able to survive off plants for a few hours before we succumbed to the many deadly snakes. The hot springs with moonshine and face masks was a wonderful way to end the trip. Pura vida! Also Ashley approves of this message. Also big ups to Tito who sold us the tour, nice guy who’s related to everyone in town (shares a father with everyone allegedly).

Well worth the money!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had a great afternoon/evening on the tour. It picked us up at the hotel and took us to the observatory park. Although the weather wasnt kind enough to let us see the volcano, the walk to the waterfall and hanging bridges was lovely and our guide Errol was brilliant. He pointed out many plants and animals including snakes and birds. The waterfall.was pretty and the frog pond in the dark was brilliant to see the red eyed tree frog. Although the highlight for my husband and i was the hot springs...in the dark! It was random and a bit mental but we had the place to ourselves with Eroll providing everyone with a volcanic face mask! He and Freddie were great and really made it a very enjoyable trip despite the mist obscuring the view of the volcano. Highly recommend. Thanks Errol :-)

Errol was amazing guide. He knew where everything was. He showed us some hidden gems. He was very accommodating and very informative. I really enjoyed being on the tour with him because it didn't even feel like a tour. It felt like bunch of friends hanging out together with one of the friends being super knowledgeable. I highly recommend him because he knows the area really well and he is very knowledgeable about the history. Also in the middle of the tour he will have an amazing surprise for you. Cheers Errol and good luck to you!!
Sincerely,

Rashid
