Amazing for families

The family was amazing- So loving and welcoming and humble. Our driver, Gabriel was wonderful too. We went with our 4 kids, aged 4-16 and all of them loved the experience. We got to milk a cow, feed the animals, learn about native plants, prepare a traditional meal, and share our time with the best people. Absolutely recommend.

Canceled and left us stranded

We really do not recommend Ecoterra. My husband and I visited La Fortuna last month and were really excited to try this tour out. We wanted to see a family-run farm and learn about the local life. However, after we booked this tour and were provided with a pickup time by Ecoterra from our hotel, the touring agency canceled our reservation without any notification. We were left standing outside our hotel at the pickup time for over 30 mins on the day of the tour until we called and were informed that our reservation had been canceled. We were not provided with any reason for cancellation and the customer service was extremely unsatisfactory. Our tour was still active on the Viator website, however, they had canceled it on their internal system for some unknown reason. This was a huge waste of our time on our already limited vacation, and we were extremely disappointed with the service Ecoterra provided us with, they did not even seem to be apologetic for leaving us stranded at our pickup location. I would caution anyone against booking with Ecoterra and recommend you find alternative touring services in La Fortuna (we had many more positive experiences with other touring companies for better prices while in La Fortuna). Absolutely terrible experience and an awful touring service.

My sister and I appreciated both all that we learned about the practices at the Eco farm and the interaction with the lovely, dedicated farming family.

This farm tour was wonderful! The family is very kind and friendly. They truly enjoy spending time with you and teaching you about their life. We loved every second, especially being able to each lunch with them!
