This is a great tour for those who want to see a some amazing features of the Costa Rica!! It was fun to stop in Sarchi and get some amazing CR coffee as well as most things you could imagine at the souvenior shop. Then, we had a 2 hour drive to lunch at La Fortuna (which was delicious) and then to the Arenal viewpoint. Our guide, Eric, was very informative and I learned a lot about CR. Traveler's note: if you come during rainy season (May-November), you run the risk of not being able to see the volcano because of the clouds, but thankfully we could see it!! It was a GREAT view. Only took a 5 minute, inclined walk. If you enjoy beautiful gardens, hot tubing, and delicious food, the Tabacon Hot Springs are also for YOU!! Truly picturesque at the 5-star hotel. We had 3 hours there, but only spent two hours in the springs. There is also a spa available, but I'm sure that costs extra. You get a locker with a key to keep your stuff safe. Definitely go!! I had a great time even going alone!

Toller und sehr langer Tag

der Ausflug wurde über Gray line Costa Rica gebucht und ausgeführt wurde er durch viajes tropicales. es waren circa 15 Stunden. man konnte dem Vulkan sehr gut sehen. Das Thermalhotel und die Quellen waren super. Wir hatten vier Stunden zum Baden. Das Mittagessen war okay. Das Abendessen gab es im Hotel als Buffet. Dieses war excellent. Der Ausflug an sich war sehr lange und anstrengend.

No need to go to souvenir shop and spend 30 minutes there.

Volcano has a nice view. You just look at the mounrain from distance. Souvenir shop we stopped by on the way to volcano was a loss of time. We had 4 hours in hot springs and this was too much. Tacoba is a very nice place and the dinner was really good, but it could be 3 hours and we could get back our hotel 1 hour earlier. 13 hours for a atour is too long.
