What people are saying about La Fortuna

It all starts from the top. Danny the owner went out of his way to pick our family up from a hotel not on the pick up list. He is Pura Vida! Such a delightful man who runs quite a large operation and employs so many. Cooks,drivers , guides etc.. who are all so grateful and pleasant. Our guide Colon was superb on so many levels. Kept us safe ! Taught us about the area, wildlife, trees and made us laugh. Balsa River was a blast from the second we boarded the raft it was a thrill of a life time. SO many great rapids!!!

The tour was well organized from the transportation, snacks, food and tours. For the zip-lining, they are very safety-oriented. It was like a military operation. For the rafting, I had Super Mario who was a lot of fun and inspirational.

We unfortunately missed the chocolate tour portion but the white water rafting portion was OUTSTANDING! So much fun. Great photos for purchase as well.

This tour was great. Pepe was our guide and he was great too. Very informative and interesting. Pickup is offered. Highly recommend this tour.

Great experience! Broke up my travel from la fortuna to Monteverde and couldn’t be more happier
