We had a fantastic day! Henry was so knowlegeable about everything! He knew very interesting facts on the animals we saw. He also knew tons about local vegitation and local history. We also stopped at a local ranch for coffee brewed right at our table and homemade rice pudding. We highly recommond this tour!

Thank you Amy for your review. We are so happy you enjoy your day with is. Rancho Los Coyotes where you had that rice pudding has to be the best place for lunch in the entire province. I will let Henry know about this review. Thank you again for letting us show you the beauty of Costa Rica

The experience was awesome.. Jose was the best..we got pick up a little later than advised but after that everything was just great.. we were only 2 in the van and it felt like a private tour. Jose was amazing and I felt safe with the driver.. We learned alot about the sugar cane process and fruit fields along the way.. On the boat we saw crocodiles, birds and a few monkeys up close..I definitely recommend..

Jose was very good and took us to see a macaw nesting on the way. Also saw cantaloupe fields being harvested along with sugar cane being cut down by both machete and machines. On the cruise we saw many birds, white face monkey, iguanas, and crocodiles.
