Marco (not polo) was a great guide! He was very knowedgeable of the history of the Arenal Volcano, and the nature surronding the Volcano. He spen additional time educating us of the vegetation along the way as wel as the wild life. Amazing experience! He even stopped to help us find us a Sloth on way back! Absoluetly worth it!!

It was great tour. We just finished a tour today and are guide was wearing his mask all the time outside and in the van. Our guide didn’t wear his mask outside and was coming close to us when talking, we were nervous so kept our masks on, he didn’t wear a mask in the Van and didn’t ask the other couple to do so till I said something . I think the guide should take a test and then the tour group should let us know.

We greatly enjoyed our hiking tour with our very knowledgeable guide who explained much particularly about the flora as we climbed the side of the volcano to the lava deposits from the 1968 eruption. We certainly would not have had the same experience had we taken the trail on our own. We were with one other couple who were birders so this became an interesting focus also , enhancing our trip. It was interesting to learn how this eruption in Costa Rica was so different to eruptions in areas like Hawaii. Despite the inclement weather which must be expected in a rain forest, the experience was nevertheless well worth our anticipated adventure. We were even treated to a viewing of a sloth as we were returning to our accommodation. Though he was high up in his tree, with the aid of a telephoto lens on a tripod which our guide had, we were able to see him quite clearly. He placed our phones next to his device to produce clear pictures as keepsakes. This was definitely a worthwhile tour. Though we were not able to see the top of the Arenal Volcano this particular day due to low clouds, we saw her in all her glory the following day.

Very informative tour and excellent tour guide Ronald from Jacamar Naturalist Tours. He had a great enthusiasm for plants and we learned a lot about the volcano and surrounding area! Beautiful hike to an observation point to see the lake and volcano at the same time. Best place for photos. Convenient pick up at your hotel and cold bottled water for the hike. I'd suggest doing this tour and booking your hot spring separately Tabacon!. We booked the hot springs separately to be able to spend more time there, the place is huge! combined with this tour you would only be at the hot springs for 3 hours including your lunch there. We were glad we booked Tabacon separately and took advantage of the beautiful spa as well with no rush to have to leave.

This was such a great experience for my husband and myself. Our tour guide was amazing and answered all and any questions we had, even where to get the best food around the area. He even stuck out the tour through the rain so we could finish our hike up the Volcano. He was very informative and was very fluent in english which was great for us. Overall a great tour and am going to recommend it to everyone.
