THANK YOU for being part of our first trip to such a gorgeous country! The tour was jam-packed with different stops and activities, even if they were short, and allowed for plenty of restroom and coffee breaks. Juan hustled tirelessly, ensuring that we were on schedule despite a small setback in the beginning (Costa Rica doesn't use addresses in the way that some countries do, so it was harder to find our hostel, but the tour manager was accessible by phone and willing to help us out too). So did all the boys working the ziplines - what they did was tough work but they were so friendly and experienced. To clarify the drop-off policy, if you plan to stay in La Fortuna at the end, let the tour company know in advance where your hotel is, and they will drop you off there as long as it's near the center of town. Just remind your driver after the hot springs. You'll miss out on dinner which is too bad only because all the food was a 10/10, but overall, we have no regrets about booking!
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.
Tour guide was amazing, very informative, patient and made the experience more enjoyable. A bit more time in the car than I initially expected but overall worth the views.
Great trip! I would recommend 100%! Lots of stops and views along the way and a great time at the park! Also, I loved our guide and driver!
Our guide Max took a very good care of us. He gave information about all the spots we visited. Overall we loved the experience. Thanks Max
