Worth the 14 hour day. The food was amazing! The views of the Volcano spectacular and Baldi hot springs sealed the deal for me. An experience you will never forget.

I Left Upset
Nhadya_S

Still PISSED. It takes no more than 3.5 hours to get to our destination and instead it took my driver 6 hours.. yes SIX and it wasn't b/c of traffic, traffic was actually good! Its b/c he decided to make ~5 stops on the way, spending a CRAZY amount of time at each stop b/c he encouraged the passengers to walk around for 15 minutes (some stops more) Or he took over an hour at one location explaining how this electricity shop works then having us tour the souvenir shop (this was the longest stop). In total, these sites included a church/park, another church/ park, a bakery, souvenir shop then lunch. It was SO unnecessary (minus lunch). I paid hard earned money to experience the volcano and hot springs not to make all of these stops which only left us about ~3.5 hours for BOTH the volcano and hot spring resort. We were so low on time when we arrived, the guide gave us the 'option' of going straight to the hot spring resort OR volcano. We voted to still go to both b/c we PAID to see BOTH! We didn't pay for these random stops. I couldn't even get a massage at the resort like I planned and as advertised due to time! This is NOT fair and I felt robbed of my experience. I honestly want some of my money back- not all as I understand gas/ food has to be paid for but I deserve something back since I didn't get the experience I paid for. If you have another guide who doesn't do this, I'd say its worth it because both destinations were stunning & fun.

Arenal Volcano and Baldi Hot Springs

The trip with Tony to Arenal Volcano and Baldi Springs was the best of my life. First off, Tony was the best driver and story teller. We passed by Grecia and Sarchi and took pictures there. Then we drove to La Fortuna to see the Arenal Volcano up close and personal the he dropped me off at Baldi Hot Springs and enjoyed the perks there. As if I don’t want to leave that place. Lunch and dinner were included and they were superb. I had a blast on both experiences.

Antonio picked us up at our hotel and off we went. He was very knowledgable and gave us very interesting information all the way to our destinations. He was personable and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable an having a great time, which we did. My husband and I highly recommend this tour and if you get Antonio, even better.

Beautiful resort with rushed, agitated guide
Starla_S
, Sep. 2021
Baldi Hot Springs Resort was clean, relaxing and fun: the early morning commute was colorful drive through gorgeous rural mountain sides. We stopped in a couple of towns along the way but the visits were rushed. Upon reaching Baldi Resort we were informed all too late that we needed cash to rent towels and were recommended to not use our debit and credit cards at the resort. The guide quickly left while the four of us guests found a solution. During drop off the driver was very pushy and rude about tips with the other guests. We also did not visit a trail and only saw Arenal Volcano while driving. Wish the driver/guide were more relaxed and less agitated. I would try another group and guide, not Antonio.

Highlight of My Trip

My guide was Max. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Arenal Volcano was majestic and the view point was very serene. Baldi Hot Springs was one of the highlights if my trip. It was a gorgeous place with so many pools to choose from. A swim-up bar and dinner topped the experience. Baldi Hot Springs is something I will not soon forget.

Absolutely wonderful! The entire tour was very educational and the lunch and dinner were both delicious! Saw almost the entire volcano as there were a few clouds at the top. Baldi Hot Springs never disappoints! Pura Vida

Loved it even though by the time we got to the volcano it was nighttime and we couldn’t see it. Felt we went to AWESOME restaurants, towns, etc. I would not have known about. Had there been there been an end time established at the hot springs when everyone should meet, rather than leaving it open ended, we would have made it to the volcano. Guide really sweet and thoughtful.

Very memorable experience. Karly was a great guide and an even better driver. Felt completely safe while driving down the hills in the rain in the dark. The food was good as well.
