Overall a great experience, for a quick beach day with multiple complementary stops along the way. The itinerary is accurate but we made a couple additional quick stops attempting to locate a Macaw (which we found!). Kenneth (guide) clearly was experienced. He was very talkative and informative with the guests that made the trip fun. NOTE to anyone interested in going, Manuel Antonio is very touristy by nature. The paths are very well defined and you'll likely see sloths, monkeys, lizards, and most of all... other people! Also they are very restrictive on snacks at the entrance (NONE ALLOWED), but there are shops outside the park you can buy water and food if you are starving.
We had a fantastic time with Marcelo. Not only did we see all the animals expected (birds, sloths, even leafcutter ants), but Marcelo went out of his way to provide interesting explanations and equipment to make sure we got the most out of our experience (binoculars ans telescope). We were delighted with our experience and definitely recommend it as one of the best things to do in San Jose!
I liked this tour. The park and the beach are great. Our guide was super kind and helpful. But, I this it is overpriced. Yes. I know its a long drive but I was a little disappointed to discover I could've done this on my own and saved a lot of money. Whoever is organizing this activity should reevaluate it and think about the value of it. Otherwise, you'll start getting bad reviews.
Alturo and Leo were terrific. We enjoyed Alturo sense of humour. Weather definitely corporated for us especially at the volcano. There was a definite problem with the pick up. The only information we received was 8am but the tour bus was there at 6:15am so had to scramble to get ready. The places we went to though we really enjoyed.
The tour was very well organized. The driver was very good and polite. The guide was very good too, helpful, knowledgeable and organized the group very well. The other tourists on the tour were friendly and cool. The lunch was at a scenic restaurant by a lake and the food/and coffee was very tasty. Overall, very happy about it!
