  • This was an amazing adventure! We went horseback riding for about an hour, zip lining for 2 hours, hot springs and mud bath, also lunch. It was amazing the trails riding the horses got a little scary but worth it. We got beautiful pictures. The people are wonderful, patient and look out for your well being. We had a blast. I recommend wearing long pants and closed toe shoes.
  • This your was fantastic. Now full disclosure, If you have even the slightest fear of horses, this won't cure it! Lol! But it was certainly fun. The ziplining was BOMB! The view was beautiful after the horses stopped trying to 1-up each other(which was never), But it was the sights we got to see! They fed us well! It was the first time we got to try simple and delicious local food! The staff was lovely! The baños were super clean as well. LiLi and Leonardo, our tour guides, just to name a few, were very nice to even us hardheaded ones. Plus size ppl are accommodated for riding the zipline as well which was great. The volcanic mud bath and hot springs were soothing. Also, 2 people in our group did not want to do the zipline, so they got 30 minute massages in place of it (offered by Ana our CATours rep & included!). The waterslide left much to be desired bc you had to walk up a steep rocky path, then about 25feet on the slide before you really got to be moved by the water. It's not a well thought out slide but I just went to the hammocks after the first slide anyway! This was super fun! The bus driver, Javier, tried to let us see a Tucan, but it hid and then flew away by the time we got off the bus. I cannot remember our actual guide's name, but he was very knowledgeable, had great English and many jokes for the ride. That Costa Rican car massage was the bomb too!!😂😂 If you decide top go on a combination tour you won't go wrong with the CATour's super combo which takes you here. Even if you take your own private tours or guides, ask them to take you here. It is about an hour and a half drive from where we stayed (Riu Guanacaste) but it was worth it!
  • Hard to get to but nice place.
  • The horseback riding was amazing, but the horses don't seem to get enough rest and seemed to get at least two, but maybe as many as four sets of riders in a day. The water slide is really old concrete. The 7 ziplines are super fun and the staff was great. They recently changed the name of this place, so nobody local knew where I was talking about (that's a bad sign, I think). The lunch was traditional and good, but they didn't have enough change to sell me two beers. The mud bath was a bowl of mud you smear on yourself and the hot springs seemed pretty manufactured. Go for the horses and the ziplines and you'll be in good shape. If you want a spa day, plan it separately.
  • Nice guides. Good zips.
