One of the best days of our lives
May 2019
My wife and I went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon in January 2019. We did the River Safari Float and La Fortuna Waterfall with Rain Forest Explorers and had a BLAST the entire time. We saw howling monkeys fighting with capuchins, our guides were funny, knowledgeable, and professional, and everything was super easy to deal with. My wife and I had so much fun we still text each other from time to time just referring to this day.

Our day started with Rain Forest Explorers picking us up at the hotel. We picked another couple up along the way and headed to the river. Along the way the guide gave us information about La Fortuna and the surrounding area. While on the river we saw all kinds of animals and our guide made sure we were the first raft in place and had the best views of all the animals. The unforgettable moment was watching monkeys fight in the trees right above our heads. After floating downstream, we ended at a sort of cafe where we were given casava bread and cheese with a juice/coffee. It was outstanding.

From there we went to La Fortuna waterfall. It's a bit of a tourist attraction and has a lot of steps, but to quote my wife "this is the coolest thing I've ever done!". We saw bats hibernating in banana leaves on the descent, and a large blue morphos butterfly flew right past our faces. Once at the water's edge we got into the water and could feel the power of the waterfall pushing us back. It was a stunning scene such a cool experience.

After drying off, Rain Forest Explorers drove us to the company's family house for a meal of comida tipica, ice cream, and coffee. Not only was their home beautiful, the house was gorgeous, and we saw a sloth climbing down a tree from where we were sitting!

I loved our experience with Rain Forest Explorers and cannot recommend them highly enough. Please use them for your Costa Rican experience.

Fantastic day - Not to be missed!!
Nov 2019
We had an amazing day on the safari float and visiting the La Fortuna waterfall, topped off by a delicious, typical lunch at the family place. Our family of five which includes 3 grown kids could not have had a better experience. Our naturalist guide Carlos and Edgar picked us up at our resort outside of La Fortuna for the first adventure - the safari float trip. Right from the start we knew we were in for a great day. Carlos was informative and entertaining, explaining Costa Rican culture as well educating us about the nature we were experiencing. The float trip was really interesting - Carlos was very attentive to point out and explain the wildlife and vegetation. Then more great conversation as we went to the La Fortuna waterfall and splashed around in the pool below. The typical lunch at the family place was delicious and so relaxing. We highly recommend this trip and especially Rain Forest Explorers!

Amazing experience with Carlos, thank you!!!!
Nov 2019
We spent two amazing days with Carlos, on the first day we did the river safari float and La Fortuna waterfall, it was tiring but a never to be forgotten experience. We also had lunch at the family ranch and were made to feel so welcomed by the family and staff. We spent quite a bit of time at lunch and did not feel rushed in any way, the food was also traditional and was fantastic.
Our first day was so enjoyable that we decided to another trip for the following day where we went to the hanging bridges,and again this was an incredible experience made even better by Carlos spotting all sorts of different animals. The trip was rounded off by a relaxing sit down to eat a fresh pineapple.
Also we cannot forget to mention Edgar who was our driver on the first day who was hilarious and extremely friendly.

What a day!!
We did the 4-in-1 tour with the safari float and Tabacón Hot Springs, and it was by far the best tour my friend and I have been on. Hansel was an absolute delight who was so knowledgeable, fun and personable. Edguardo was lovely and very friendly. The lunch was so delicious, thank you ladies for your wonderful cooking and the watermelon juice was delicious. This tour was absolutely sensational and would recommend to anyone who wants to pack as much into their day as possible. Thank you guys. Simone and Peta

Amazing!!!!!!!! 5 star service !!!!!! Don’t miss this great tour!!!!!
Jul 2019 • Family
I can’t even express how wonderful our day with the rain forest explorers company was. Our tour guide Edwin was beyond fantastic. Not only was our day amazing on the river and at the beautiful la Fortuna waterfall. We learned so much about Costa Rica and had a first-hand chance to experience wildlife including monkeys, sloths, birds and iguanas All around us. Our tour guide Edwin even knew how to make monkey calls to bring the monkeys out in the open. It blew us away. Our tour was intimate and felt like we were really submerged into the coaster Rican culture , The trip to the local ranch for Costa Rican coffee and dessert as well as the home cooked lunch at the owner of the company’s family home was the cherry on top of the cake.
What a beautiful experience and country !!!
Rain forest explorers made our day perfect , thanks again to Edwin and Edgar ( the owner) for the hospitality they gave us .
We will definitely use them again on our next visit.

We took a trip with our 4 boys...ages 3,5,7 and 9. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We had a great trip and the lunch which was an authentic homemade lunch was the icing on the cake. We would highly recommend them for a family with young children.

Amazing Experience
Apr 2019 • Couples
This trip far exceeded our expectations! The family owned and operated company went above and beyond to deliver an amazing day on the river. Carlos was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and country as a whole. Edgar made the drives very comfortable and safe. The lunch we had with them was the best meal of our 10 days there. We will definitely be using their services in the future.

Great day in Arenal
The river safari was a great activity to do with kids, we spotted lots of wildlife, including howler monkeys, a boa constrictor, tucans, iguanas and a macau. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave lots of interesting information on wildlife and environmental issues. The waterfall visit was a truly unique experience. The trip included lunch in a private restaurant with local produce and was absolutely delicious.

A great day in Arenal with Rainforest Explorers!
We had a super fun day starting with a relaxing river float. Our guide, Hanzel, spoke perfect English, was entertaining and had a good eye pointing out all sorts of plants and wildlife, many birds incl toucans, bats camouflaged on a tree and several troops of monkeys. We enjoyed a little snack of plantains, coconut bars and cheese cubes at a cattle farm cafe before heading to the waterfall. Antonio was very accommodating with pictures and holding our things as we took a refreshing dip in the waterfall (approx 500 step hike down, but not difficult) After the waterfall we had the unique privilege to eat an authentic Tiko meal prepared by our driver, Edgardo’s family who own the business. It is a private restaurant just for their customers. We had many wonderful meals in Costco Rico, but this was one of my favorites! Delicious! Our next stop was the volcano where we hiked 1-2 km, some steep steps, but again not too difficult. Antonio was very knowledgeable teaching us a lot about the volcano and vegetation. We finished the full 9 hr adventure with a juicy watermelon and pineapple snack. I highly recommend Rainforest Adventures for your trip!
