This is one where a simple rating system breaks down. The high points were very high, and none of it was bad, but Ecoterra probably has better options than this tour. Our guide was fantastic - knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. She even administered well-done first aid when I had a mishap on the rocks at the base of the waterfall. The hanging bridge tour is not to be missed, as we saw a wonderful variety of wildlife. Lunch was great. The only downside to this particular tour is that the waterfall and volcano viewing hike are a little on the ho-hum side; you're probably better off just booking the hanging bridges and using your time elsewhere.

One side note is that we had to delay our trip twice, once due to COVID in 2020 and once due to a death in the family in 2022. Of all the vendors we had to deal with to make those changes, Ecoterra was the most responsive and most professional in handling things.

We can't say enough good things about Ecoterra and our guide, Mainor! We had the combo tour booked (Arenal, waterfall, and hanging bridges) and during the Arenal volcano tour, my mother could not ascend the stairs leading to the lookout point - but Mainor immediately offered to take her back to the van and stay with her as we continued. Mainor's knowledge of Costa Rican ecology and history are encyclopedic, and his enthusiasm and good humor are contagious. If you are considering booking a tour while in La Fortuna, do yourself a favor and GO WITH MAINOR Guzman! He's the best! thank you, Mainor! Feliz Ano!

We had a great day with Ecoterra! Gustavo was our guide and he was great company, really knowledgeable and spotted so many animals we never would have seen. We did the volcano tour first, then the waterfall, then a delicious lunch in a beautiful restaurant and finished with hanging bridges. Highly recommend!!

I booked the trip with Julio at Jungle Tours, based next to the Amsterdam - bar & nightclub, on the end of the main Street in la Fortuna.
.
It was a full day trip:
Hike to volcano
A small lunch after hiking
Whoever wanted to take a short swim in lagoona
Treck to the waterfall
2 hanging bridges (small bridges)
Taking a 30-45 mins bath in hot springs
.
It was a great day
Our tour guides were great:
Harvin from Nicaragua,
Omar from Costa Rica.

We did the combination tour: arenal hiking in the morning, then la Fortuna waterfalls and in the afternoon the hanging bridges. It was great because they took care of everything: a shuttle came to pick us up, we had a guide and a driver who took us to the hike. We were given water and walking sticks. There we spent about 1,5h hiking at the bottom of the volcano. Unfortunately it was a little foggy, so we couldn’t see much of the volcano, but it was still a great hike and our guide (Dani) showed us many plants and explained all about the history of volcanoes etc. Afterwards we did a quick walk to the parking lot and saw a few animals on the way. There cookies and fresh fruit were already prepared for us. Next stop was the waterfall, which was a nice excursion. After that we were taken to a restaurant for a nice lunch and then dropped off at the hotel for an hour. Then another shuttle and guide (Rosa) picked us up and took us to the hanging bridges: amazing ! We had very little time in arenal, so the combination tour was perfect because everything from tickets/lines/driving was organized for us. Definitely worth the money.

This all day excursion is an absolute must if you are in La Fortuna for a short period of time. Our tour guide Alberto was fantastic - friendly and extremely knowledgeable especially regarding wildlife. Before we even left hotel grounds, Alberto spotted a group of toucans. We pulled over, and he set up the spotting scope so we could see them up close. He even took photos with our phone through the scope. He always took the time throughout the tour to offer to take photos of our family at the perfect place to capture the beauty of the landscape. Not even a few more miles down the road we stopped to watch 3 sloths. One was climbing a tree. We were told that this isn’t common, so we were very happy to have experienced it. The hike to the volcano was comfortable for people of all ages. The waterfall was beautiful, but the hike back up was quite a workout. The hanging bridge tour was awesome. We saw 3 viper snakes, 2 were so close that we could touch them. We learned to look before you step and watch where you put your hands. We also saw birds, bats, lizards, a beehive, a frog, a tarantula and amazing trees. Alberto knew each species and told us all about them. The views from the bridges were beautiful. Lunch and dinner were delicious as were the fresh fruits provided by the tour guides. They always had water on hand and walking sticks were offered during the hike. Ending the day at Baldi hot springs was just what we needed. The kids had a blast on the water slides. I would highly recommend this all day tour if you want to see all that there is to see in La Fortuna in one day.

My husband and I did the full-day combination tour which included the park hike, La Fortuna Waterfall, lunch, Hanging Bridges tour, Tabacon Hot Springs, and dinner. If it sounds like a lot in one day, it is, but was so worth it. Our guide was Rosa and she couldn't have been better suited for her task. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the land, the wildlife, and her culture made her the perfect companion for the day. With so many activities and so much transportation to coordinate, I was very impressed with Ecoterra's efficiency. After a full day of walking and climbing, Tabacon Hot Springs were the perfect way to soothe our muscles. Our tour group was small (never more than 8 people at any one time) and we felt that Rosa was personally addressing each of us. Thank you Rosa and Ecoterra for an incredible (although exhausting) day.

Wonderful day with Luis and Miguel - they both took so much trouble to ensure we saw all that we could and even stopped on the journey to show us our own personal sloth!
Very interesting tours although would have been better without the rain!
Hanging bridges the highlight of the day!
Very clean and comfortable mini bus with a safe driver highly recommend this company.

We had three full days with these guys - they provided a transfer from our resort on the Pacific coast - air con and WIFI provided. They arranged for us to do zip lining (amazing, inclusive, fun, safe), the combo tour which was fabulous but you need to be FIT to do this as it's hard work - however our guide took it at our pace and was very good and not making it obvious that he was allowing certain people (me) to get their breath by quickly thinking of a very important fact to share! The hanging bridges were spectacular - the waterfall beautiful (lots of steps) and the hot springs at Tabacon very good with great food. Lunch at the lovely Casa Luna was excellent. The volcano hike was disappointing as it was cloudy so we couldn't see much but we found loads of interesting things to look at in the forest, which made up for it. We got VERY MUDDY.

The sloth tour was very good - a nice easy walk with lots of wildlife to see and of course Sloths! Need repellent for this one.

All the staff were wonderful but we loved Ray

When they dropped us off three hours' drive away we realised that my daughter had left her phone in the van! We didn't have the driver's number and could see on 'find my iphone' that it was on its way back to Fortuna and already 20 miles away! We sent a sound to the phone and tried to call the phone but no reply! We frantically tried to call the office but there was no reply so we sent a whatsapp in the hope that the staff would find the phone before the van was used again. We then went back onto the 'find my iphone' app to block the phone, only to see that it was on its way back to us - the driver had heard the sound and turned around to bring it back for us. Heartfelt thanks - not only is this an expensive item but another 10 days with a 16 year old who has lost her phone was not a good thought!
