Great view, great nature and wild life experience
Jan 2020
We were lucky to have a perfect weather on Irazu. make sure you bring warm clothes as the wind is strong and cold. Then the change of climate from cold dry to warm humid on the way down to Sarapiqui River was interesting... The river cruise with great as we could see a lot of wild animals. The service was great too.

Great trip to escape the city
Dec 2019 • Solo
This tour was a great way to see sights outside the city. We didn't actually get to go inside the Santiago ruins, since it hadn't opened yet, but we did get to see the outside of it. I would have liked to actually go in, however, since this was advertised. The volcano was very cool, and we got some clearing of the fog so we could see the lake. The breakfast and lunch was also very delicious. On the river tour we did see monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, birds. We never saw the snake and frog collection at the private reserve. At the private reserve, we also ended up joining with another tourist who we shared the river tour with. However, we would have had to wait for her until she finished ziplining. Luckily, we also wanted to zipline, which was fun. But if we hadn't wanted to, we would have waited probably an hour for her to finish before leaving. It would have been nice to know about this beforehand. The overall tour was fun, and a nice way to see part of the country. It was about 3 hours of driving though. Overall I think it was worth the price and time.

A long, but nice escape from the city!
Feb 2018
Just booked this trip as the "introduction" to our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The highlight of the tour was definitely the boat ride, as the guide and boat driver knew exactly where to look and would stop to point out crocodiles, birds, and monkeys. The volcano would have been a highlight as well, but we were a little unlucky to have picked a day that was extremely cloudy, so we really couldn't see anything from the peak. Still, our guide was very knowledgeable about the area around San Jose and the traditional breakfast and coffee were delicious.
One thing we were unprepared for was that the tour joined up with another before the boat ride, because people can book a boat ride/canopy tour activity through the same guide. You do the boat ride together, then they do the canopy tour as you eat lunch, tour the gardens and frog house at the family farm. The garden tour is not quite as long as the canopy tour, though, so we did do a decent amount of sitting around (albeit in a very scenic place) waiting for them to come back and eat their own lunch. A large chunk of the afternoon is also dedicated to driving back through the National Park (which is very pretty and was used in the filming of Jurassic Park), but that is really just because you need to get away from the city to see that much wildlife.
We think this tour is a good value and worth trying out if you have a full day to spare, but it is a lot of driving and not all that time will be filled chatting with the guide, so make sure you bring something to keep yourself entertained!
