Hi all,
I would highly recommend this tour along with the wonderful guide I had. Erick was extremely knowledgeable of the local fauna and flora. He went out of his way to show me many things, and I have to say I learned a lot. My tour almost didn't happened as the rest of the group cancelled that morning and I had the pleasure of getting to go out on the hike solo and with Erick, of course. He's a great guy, and you feel his compassion for the forest and the animals of the area. He truly loves this work and he really connects with you on the trip. We laughed a lot as well. Best tour I've ever had, thanks to him.

Hi There, One the few things that can be seen as an advantage related to the Covid virus, is that group sizes are way smaller. Due to this the service is more personal than it can be under normal circumstances. I´d lie if I were to say that this is what I hope for. We normaly do limit the group sizes to ensure enough personal attention but a tour normaly needs at least 5people to make if financialy fiable. Bit by bit we are getting more people and we do sometimes reach the 10person limit, When this happens we form a second group with a second guide. Respecting these maximum group sizes we ensure that hte guides can keep a personal connection with all the participants and that there is plenty of chance for interaction and we can keep everybody save. No anonimous mass tourism with us...

Incredible experience! Red Lava is the best!
Jan 2020
We had an amazing time on this tour. Our pick-up was right on-time and the staff was super professional and organized.

Our guide, Erick, was extremely knowledgeable about the area we walked through and we learned so much from him. We spotted all 3 kinds of monkeys from the area (spider, capuchin, and howler), and saw a lot of other birds and insects. Even though it was a packed day, the tour pace was perfect -- definitely doable for the average person. You'll be hard pressed to find another tour that competes in terms of what is offered for this price! 10/10 would recommend Red Lava to anyone looking for a way to explore La Fortuna as a tourist.

Great Experience
Dec 2019
I had a great time on this hike. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. He showed us a lot of different plants and taught us the history of the Arenal Volcano area. We saw vipers, toucans, and white-nosed coati, jumped in the lagoon, and swam in the hot spring at the end on this adventure. Unfortunately, we could not see the volcano at any point on the tour as it was very cloudy. I guess I will just have to come back again!

Excellent way to spend the day!
Dec 2019 • Solo
I had a really good experience with this company and our guide. I had wanted a solid day of volcano exploration and this was perfect. Informational as well as quiet time to reflect, a super nice group of people, incredible natural beauty... and ending at the hot springs was the perfect ending. It was a great day and I totally recommend it!

Carlos is top-notch!
Dec 2019 • Couples
Our guide Carlos was such an excellent, jovial tour guide. He stopped and showed us different plants, such as citronella, and had us taste some others! We learned so much about the different insects and mammals. He helped point out animals (birds and even a snake) that we otherwise would not have seen. After lunch we went to the waterfalls which was spectacular. Ended the day with a dip in a hot springs resort and cacique drinks. I went with my boyfriend, we are in our late 20’s, and had such a fun time!! Totally worth the money. We had a fun full day. Thank you Carlos!!

Nice walking day

The walking wasn’t strenuous, but both the morning and afternoon walks were nice. We didn’t get to see the top of Arenal, but the view from the hotel was amazing! The hot springs were very nice at the end of the day!

Great experience with a wonderful tour guide!
May 2019 • Friends
Our expectations were met and exceeded on this tour. On the hike we saw a sloth, boa constrictor, a toucan, caterpillar, butterflies, moths, frogs, howler monkeys, tarantulas, learned about various birds and even sampled some edible plants. What made our hike exceptional was our guide, Santiago. He was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, energetic and full of stories that kept us entertained. Although other reviews describe the hike as extreme, we'd say it was a more moderate hike for those who are normally active. We had a great experience, and recommend any tour led by Santiago - Katie & Jennifer

Leisurely hike in national park
Feb 2019 • Solo
It was a good day out but the description for this tour needs to be updated as it is definitely not an "extreme hiking adventure" nor did it include "two volcanoes".

The views of Cerro Arenal are cool, we got lucky as there were no clouds. We also saw a sloth and a snake. The guide was very informative and overall it is better value for money than the half day tours.

It was a good tour but lacks a sense of adventure. Maybe suited best for couples.
