Gorgeous trip from San Jose
Incredible experience outside of San Jose. A must see! Would not recommend driving yourself.
The animal sanctuary was wonderful and the falls themselves were breathtaking.
Gardens were well kept and beautiful.
Lunch was nice, but nothing special.

Very cool overall
This was a very good tour all things considered. A couple notes.

The tour started later than was originally specified. It has originally said a 9 am start but we received a note the morning of that we would be picked up at 1030.

We stopped at a snack store along the way and were about to get some beverages and snacks. Much needed since lunch ended up not happening until almost 3 pm.

The park itself was a bit “canned” for my taste. Started off with a guided tour through a few zoo-type enclosures of birds, snakes, frogs, butterflies, monkeys and a few large cats.

Then free to walk along a path and see the 4-5 waterfalls they have. The path takes about thirty minutes and is mostly downhill (shuttle takes you back to the top at the end)

Lunch was good food though it came later than we were expecting or had planned for. We were able to order alcoholic drinks and oat a reasonable cost for them.

All in all, it was a good tour

Excellent Tour with Oliver
Feb. 2020 • Solo
It was a long day as it’s about 5-6 hours on the bus between hotel pickups and drop offs, but the tour guide, Oliver, is very entertaining and patient with questions. He kept things moving at a very comfortable pace. I’d highly recommend this tour if you have a full day.

Amazing time and guides!
Dec. 2019 • Couples
My wife and I took this tour yesterday. We had the pleasure of getting Jose and Eduardo as our guides. I cannot say enough good things! Knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and safe drivers!! The La Paz Gardens are stunning! The animals look well fed and looked after. The guides walk you through the whole way and are respectful of the animals. They do not recommend taking selfies or touching the animals, although it is an option. The focus was instead about enjoying the animals respectfully. This is a big deal in Costa Rica and there is even a big hashtag campaign about it.
We saw beautiful birds in the aviary, got to hang out with the most adorable sloths, and go face to face with a Jaguar! Lunch is included and the food was quite good. It is a buffet, so many options.
Now let’s talk waterfalls and stairs. I total there are 4 waterfalls. Each is stunning, powerful and a hike to get to. My wife’s FitBit said we walked 46 flights of stairs. There are shortcuts if you feel the need to get close, but we went for it. We are both in moderately good shape (her more than me) and we both had a moment where we took a break on the climb out of the last waterfall.
Overall, the guides are funny and safe, knowledgeable and friendly. The animals are beautiful and well treated. The waterfalls are spectacular and memorable. Do yourself a favor and take this tour. So far it has been the most memorable for us on our 5 day trip! Thank you Jose and Eduardo!!

A MUST see for Costa Rica Travel
Nov. 2019
This park is well worth the entrance fee. It is one of the only places where you can see all of the rainforest animals without having to tromp through the rainforest. They are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of Costa Rica's natural ecology. Here is you will get up close and personal with hummingbirds and butterflies and you wil be able to view the jungle cats and my favorite the sloths. It is an excellent way to spend the day. The even have an excellent buffet lunch available.

Enjoyable day!
Nov. 2019 • Couples
La Paz waterfall gardens is beautifully green and plush. The steps to the actual waterfalls were surrounded by great views and we were able to get pretty close to get some good pictures. We also enjoyed seeing all the various species of Costa Rican animals, especially the humming birds, but I was a little uncomfortable with the sizes of the enclosures. This was particularly true for the jungle cats and parrots. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our day here which was made even better by our tour guide, Daniel, who was truly excellent. Funny and knowledgable with brilliant English! The lunch was good too. Would recommend if you want a taste of Costa Rica’s natural side!

Amazing experience
Nov. 2019
We got more than we expected with this tour from butterflies that landed on us to sloths named flash gorgeous waterfalls and LOTS of stairs! We got our exercise while enjoying all there was to see. Pablo made it so we got some great pictures with Toucans and educated us on them as well. He even woke up a cute sloth named Flash so we could get pictures with her!
