Sloths are the #1 animal on the “must see” list that people want to see when they come to Costa Rica. And this tour gives you your best chance to see them if you are staying in Guanacaste!  After a short hike to Guanacaste’s most stunning waterfall, you will head north to look for sloths, and there is a pretty good chance you will see some of the beautiful dart frogs, toucans, scarlet macaws and other animals – all in the wild, nothing caged on this tour.  Enjoy these great spots with your private, naturalist guide who will share useful tips and interesting facts revealing their love of Costa Rica and its rich history -- and they make it FUN!

In addition to seeing the wildlife and waterfalls, we were able to experience snorkeling, zip lining, a river boat tour looking at crocs and monkeys and other wildlife and surfing lessons for the brave ones! So much to do in addition to seeing the spectacular sunsets!

Wonderful, we are so happy that we were able to show you so much fawn and fauna in this beautiful country of Costa Rica but you will have to come back because we have lots more to show you and other adventure activities to add to you itinerary. We agree the sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are gorgeous, breathtaking and second to none. So, please come back soon. Thank you, warm regards & "PURA VIDA" Bill Beard Costa Rica

I didn't realize when I booked that this was a private tour! What a pleasant surprise when Jose picked us up for the day. We stopped first at Catarata Llanos Del Cortes water fall - just a small, village-owned waterfall. There's restrooms to change, a short walk down some

I'm jealous. I haven't done this tour for awhile and I dearly miss seeing all the wildlife and spending time on the river. Great review, thank you for taking your time to write it. Jose is great, we have worked together over 25 years and he is like family to us. We have great pride in all our guides and some of them are second generation with us. It's reviews like yours that help us get the word out about this wonderful country and the opportunities to get off the beaten path. Thank you again, warm regards & "Pura Vida"
