Reservations needed over Easter for guided tours?

We are a family of 4 (kids - 11 and 13) and we have 5 nights booked at Lost Iguana, Arenal area. We are going Easter week (4/11 - 4/16, 2014) and have read that it will be very crowded. Can we arrive and book trips a day or two ahead as can be done other times of the year or should we book things now? We prefer to arrive and talk to people there before booking but don't want to get closed out. Specifically we wish to do a zip line trip (Sky Tram/Trek), a river rafting trip (Balsa), Proyecto Asis and a horseback riding trip into the waterfall (La Fortuna). can we wing it as we hope to? Anyone been there during this time period?

The only thing I see on that list that you "must" book in advance is Proyecto Asis. I would also book the river rafting.

If you are willing to take a chance that you won't be able to do some things...... then book once you are there. Arrive as early as possible and walk around La Fortuna. You will see kiosks and tour agency offices and you can often get a good discount.

If you decide to book ahead of time, book directly with the excursion as much as possible. There's no need to involve a third-party booking agency unless you have no other choice.

Proyecto Asis - you can book directly. A horseback trip you can book once you are there and just go to the La Fortuna waterfall - you don't need an organized excursions for that.

Just be aware that everything will be crowded and busy so bring an extra portion of patience!
