What people are saying about Eco Tours in Central Valley

La Paz Waterfalls Gardens (Half day).
"The Garden was a memorable experience. We enjoyed a comfortable and informative automobile drive from San Jose to La Paz (and back) with our tour guide Jean (Jon). There was a steady fresh rain that fell while we walked about in La Paz Waterfalls Garden which provided a true feeling of being present in the rain forest . Standing among the Humming birds was a highlight. The Falls were incredible as was all the beautiful flora and fauna throughout. Jon guided us through the gardens and was able to answer all our questions and point things out that we otherwise would have missed. The buffet was wonderful. Our guide employed a smart travel strategy by starting the day early and getting back to San Jose before the traffic rush period. As a consequence we had time in the afternoon to enjoy the fabulous National Museum in San Jose which our guide was kind enough to drop us off at."..."

Arenal Volcano Hike plus Baldi Hot Springs and Dinner
"Our guide Miguel was knowledgeable, he gave us commentary about history of volcano as we hiked to the observatory where we can view top of the volcano and Arenal lake. Please be warned it is not a soft hike. The hike has way too many rocks (it's not muddy surface, it's just a lot of rocks making it hard on your feet). It's an intermediate level hike. Even though tour description over here says "water bottle and snack included", we were not given a water bottle by the tour guide. He said originally that he has some water for us, but when we asked he pointed us to a restaurant (after our hike) to get our own bottle refilled over there. I am glad we carried enough water for us ourselves. After the hike and taking photos, we were driven to Baldi hot springs which was a lot of fun. Baldi has a lot of different pools with varying water temperatures and it was nice and relaxing to soak in that. we had an hour or so before eating dinner and 45 minutes or so after dinner to relax in pools. The dinner had a lot of vegetarian options and was delicious. We were given enough time at Baldi hot springs to enjoy ourselves and were picked up at 9:15 pm to be driven back to our hotel."..."
