Visiting LaPaz waterfall Garden was a great end to our Costa Rican adventure. We had a day to spend in the San Jose area before our flight home. The tour was a great way to spend a final day in the rain forest, seeing a new part of the country on the drive and experiencing amazing wildlife and waterfalls. We appreciated the ease of the hotel pick up and drop off.

We loved this trip on our first day in Costa Rica. The Waterfall Gardens and animal sanctuary were lovely.
