Wear good hiking shoes, the paths are steep and rocky
Aug 2021
The hike near the base of Arenal Volcano was very good (Carlos is an excellent guide), lunch was ok (takeout cartons of casado), but the hot springs were disappointing - they consisted of a row of cement kiddie pools behind what looked like a roadside motel near La Fortuna. We decided not to bother and skipped that part.

Great Hike, Even Better Guide
Carlos was our guide and he was excellent! He was full of information and readily answered any question we had about the local plants, animals and culture. Knowing I was interested especially in animals, he found out from a friend where a certain species was last seen and took us to see it! Above and beyond! Would 100% recommend Carlos’s your guide!

Hiking the volcano with Carlos
We did the Arenal Volcano hike with Carlos and had a wonderful time. We saw a sloth, spider monkeys, an eyelash pit viper and much more. Carlos was very knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna and history of the area. Lunch was delicious and the hot springs were a relaxing end to the afternoon. I would highly recommend. As a side note, the hike can be a bit strenuous but we took many breaks and kept a leisurely pace.

Such a fun day
Mar 2020
I was fortunate to get this tour in before everything started to get shut down due to coronavirus. Im very happy I ended up doing this tour and it ended up being probably my best day in Costa Rica. Carlos was a great guide, and really enjoyed meeting my friends Christelle and Antony from France. Would highly recommend!

Sub-par hotsprings
Dec 2019 • Couples
The tour consisted of two parts. 1. A hike to the foot of the vulcano. 2. A visit to some hot springs.

The day started in a confused way and I got the feeling that they were a bit disorganized. However, after some delay we were off on our hike. The guide, Eric, seemed passionated and did a good job. All in all I think the hike was good.

However, the promised hot springs fell way below expectations. It rather felt as a dirty water park. It was a shame that the day ended there.

My advice to the team organizing the tour: dont waste Eric's great job by ending the day with a dissapointment.

Hi Carl, Sorry that the departure of the tour felt a bit chaotic. It is peak season right now and we have many groups going. There are over 300 hotels and RBandB-s in La Fortuna and pick ups can get a bit hectic. Since I was the one that sold you the tour I can be quite certain that I explained you about the hotsprings. Its a small resort at the foot of the volcano and we are happy to add it to the tour just raising the price of the tour by a fraction. We used to go to the river but the Costa Rican Tourist Board has prohibited this because of what they thought were safety issues. The Termo Arenal resort we visit, gives us a fun, comfortable, save and clean (no idea why you though it wasn´t) way of ending our day of hiking. No doubt there are fancier options like: Baldi (add´s $45 to the price), Eco Termales (+$50) Tabacon (+$75) which we can all help sell and organize, but for many people this is to much of an expense.

Book your tours with them!!
Got off the bus station from San Jose and immediately booked all our three days excursions with them. They are very helpful and flexible. It was such a relief to know that everything has been arranged and that we were in good hands. Whatever company they associate with to complete the tour has the same excellence with them. Please give them a visit!! Thank you for the wonderful memories
