Nature and Relax

Alex was our driver and a great tour guide. Each stop was very informative, even the fruit stand. No buying pressure at all. We saw Macaw, crocodiles, monkeys and sloths in the wild! The tour was full of nature and a chance to relax and enjoy the view at the end. Breakfast and lunch were plenty, I never felt hungry.

Highly recommend!! Kenneth is the guide who is kind and nice, Andrei is special guide in national park. He is really amazing how found lots of animals and insects. Without him, we probably couldn’t see anything. But thankfully he is there and our trip became so wonderful. Food is good too. Looks like long driving, but it’s actually not that bad! Van is big, tour team everyone was so friendly. I had excellent experience.

Long drive, beautiful beaches

Long drive from San Jose! Juan was great but it was a short amount of time in each spot due to the long drive from/back to San Jose. If you want to have a nice beach time this is great. We didn’t see much of the animals except for the monkeys at the beach. Food was great with an amazing view!

Me and my boyfriend had a blast in this tour with Fernando Moss. Absolutely the best experience, saw tons of animals, shook hand with a monkey. Fernando Moss gave us tons of information about the plants, animals and geographic areas. Definitely recommend to add this to your trip in Costa Rica.

Ken was a great tour guide! we had a group of 5 in total, we really liked the 3 people we were paired with for our booking also. Our tour went over fruit, stopped for food which was great, and got a nice tour of the animals on the way to the beach. The beach was amazing with warm water, monkey activity, and beautiful views, I highly recommend.

Sloths Everywhere

Saul our tour guide with Go Tours Costa Rica was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the park and was quick to assist with photos. I have never seen so many sloths in one place.

Saul was a great guide! He was knowledgeable, friendly and fun. There were just 5 of us in the group which was nice. The van had a noisy leaky window that my son plugged with a bag which solved the issue. The breakfast was standard Costa Rican fare. We stopped at the crocodile bridge. The driver and guide know a place off the beaten path where we saw many macaw. That was very cool! Then we stopped at an overview of the ocean that was very nice. We then went on to Manuel Antonio. Our guide was able to help us see many animals: we saw both two and three toed sloth’s, white faced monkeys up very close, several lizards, a cayman, some bats and raccoons. We had time to swim in the ocean however be warned the changing facilities aren’t great. The lunch was delicious and view was spectacular! We were shocked when our guide told us it was only his 2nd time to lead that tour. We did this tour on a Sunday and the traffic back into the city was horrendous (should have taken 2-3 hours but took about 5-6 hours).

Too long

Definitely be prepared for a ‘minimum’ of 6 hours more likely 8 hours of a 12 hour tour in a van driving. Lunch was an hour late which could have been spent at the beach instead of waiting in the restaurant. Our tour/driver Alex was most entertaining and informative. But would not recommend this tour from San Jose.
