  • At first we were skeptical whether it really would be worth because of the price. When we picked from the shuttle bus and our driver Hector and our tour guide Erica were friendly welcomed the trip started at 7 o'clock in the morning. The hike thanks to Erica and the bridges to run absolutely gorgeous so through the jungle we have seen first very many animals to which we would otherwise blind walked past. Erica took super long for us. It has stopped getting so that our group could shoot photos and has endeavoured to show us as many animals as possible. After 3 hours we were through with the first part but - unfortunately - with anticipation of the La Fortuna waterfall. We were again driven by Hector. When we ran the 500 steps down to the waterfall Erica said we can leave us as much time as we would like, and if we again want to give easy decision. The waterfall was really impressive, he had something about him, which was not really to see pictures. Then it went to a restaurant where we ate a typical dish. On the way to the restaurant the volcano a little behind the curtain of cloud has to let see and Erica immediately said we should now rather shoot a photo, because it is very rare that the clouds from the volcano disappear. An even greater surprise was broken up after lunch to Arenal Vulkan and, according to Erica, had the best view of him since January. Completely free of clouds we had the perfect view of the volcano. Hector and Erika said it doesn't get any better and is extra on the Road stopped so we could shoot enough Fotoos. You really saw that it mattered Erica and Hector not on time again in the hotel to deliver everyone us, so not to much work for the money. Quite the contrary! All the time they were trying to make the day a special adventure for us. At volcano arrived have we very much about the history of the volcano Arenal and the town of Arenal. I was really surprised how well they embodied the life motto of Costa of Ricans "Pura Vida". Very friendly, very open, very friendly! I can recommend this tour really everyone is in La Fortuna.

  • Our tour guide was Erica and she was AMAZING!! She was so friendly and informative. We learned so much during our whole day with her! She was an expert on so many things, animals, plants, food, and even at taking awesome photos!!! Lol. Definitely worth every penny!!
  • Our guide Victoria was just fabulous! Very informative and Victoria put up with our antics. She even showed us how to eat termites from a nest!! Can't do that in Colorado!! Thanks for the memories!
  • I did the volcano hike with Green Vacations. My guide, Pablo, was amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable and has an obvious passion for the plants, animals, and history of the area. Learning about the volcano was fascinating and Pablo’s excitement in his explanations made it even more enjoyable. La fortuna is an extremely beautiful area and I am glad that I didn’t pass it up in order to stay at the beach for my whole trip. Exploring this area has given me irreplaceable memories. I highly recommend Green Vacations. And don’t forget that the guides make their living off of tips. So be generous, they deserve it!
