We took a 15 hours tour from the Riu Hotel to the Arenal Volcano and Lake area. The tour was uncomfortably long. Tour was in Spanish and English. Guide was very average and I would strongly recommend taking an English only tour.

I have used Swiss for several trips to CR and last week was no exception.....except that they actually got better! From a seemless airport pickup to easy tour selection....this company is the best! My husband and I did the Palo Verde river tour, the Sensoria rain forest hike and the all day and evening trip to Arsenal. The guides are... More

The Rainforest excursion was good, but tiring, lots of walking up and down hills, my calves were sore for three days after. But I'm terribly out of shape. There is a nice thermal pool to swim in though, and it was nice. Lunch was good. There were no bug bites at all. Our guide Lawrence was very knowledgeable.

We took the sunset catamaran tour and it was a fantastic time! I would highly recommend paying a little bit more getting a few people together and taking the private/smaller boat. There were eight of us on our boat, we got to snorkel, get out of the beach, see some dolphins, catch a fresh tuna and eat it, and watch... More

Really good service. They were on time. They waited for us, they emphasized safety and really were organized. The bus ride was completely comfortable and air conditioned. The mega combo tour was perfect. Nice balance of fun and relaxation. I would recommend them to anyone.

We booked 2 tours with Victor from the Occidental. Victor was very helpful in helping us find the experience we were looking for. We did a 1/2 day tour at the Palo verde national park where we saw a lot of the natural wild life and surroundings. This also included a stop at an authentic Costa Rican festival which included...

We took 2 tours with this group, as they have offices in the Marriott in Guanacaste. First we went to Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs and the next day we went to Sensoria. The guides were great and so knowledgeable. Each guide brought a personal touch to their part of the tour. I learned so much about Costa Rica and... More
