We took the one-day tour with Expediciones Tropicale. Included transportation from the hotel. Zip lining was exciting and well organized. Hiking trek is short. Boat ride not much, hardly saw any birds or monkeys. Worth going once. Tour operator very helpful. We paid for photos but did not get any so the tour office came to our help. Also had... More

Arturo arranged for pickup at the airport for transportation to our hotel. The Canopy zipline & Sarapiqui boat tour was a regular trip but we were picked up at our hotel driven by a... More

The owner/manager of this tour company lived and worked in the USA for most of his life before he moved to Costa Rica fifteen years ago. Thus, he fully understands the need to be be responsive in his communications and reliable in providing services. Communications were in English via e-mail with responses generally the same day. His prices were quite... More
