Our travel agent arranged to have Sunset take us on a tour of the Arenal volcano area and Tabacon Hot Springs. Danny, the Guide and Rui, the Driver, picked us up promptly at our hotel. Before even getting in the road, they spotted two sloths and an iguana on the hotel grounds. Once at the volcano area, Danny led us... More

We had the pleasure of taking a tour with Sunset Tours as the first tour of our honeymoon. Our guide, Roy, was so incredibly personable and friendly that we immediately felt at ease. We not only had a great tour guide, we also had him all to ourselves which was such a treat! Roy was clearly very fond of the... More

One of the best tours we've ever done! Our guides Jason and Roy were awesome, fun, nice, enthusiastic and safe! We rappelled down waterfalls, jumped into pools, walked through the creek, and a short zip line. I was nervous at first but the guys do a great job of helping you. We ended with a walk/swim in the beautiful and... More

The tour includes rappelling down waterfalls. A short zip line through the forest. A couple of small jumps into pools of water. Great scenery... More

Julio picked us up from the airport in San Jose and transported us to our hotel in La Fortuna and he was awesome. He was engaging and genuinely a freindly guy. He also took us to some hot springs a few days later and was a joy.

We went on a late afternoon hike with Marcos and Carlos. They were excellent guides and have a lot of passion for nature. We saw some very interesting things including a sloth with her baby, toucans, a coral snake and more. The hike itself is pretty light but it was a good excursion.

Upon recommendation from our hotel, we went on a canyoning tour with Glisman(sp?- sorry!) from Sunset Tours. He made the day for all of us!

Loved all of our tour guides! We had personal transfers with Minor who was wonderful and then went waterfall repelling which was incredible. The waterfalls and rain-forest was beautiful! We loved the waterfall repelling. Highly recommend this your group!
