    Ricardo is an excellent tour guide who is knowledgeable about Costa Rica, its flora & fauna. He and the driver did a wonderful job of finding wildlife. The tour was great as we could experience the costa Rica nature in one day. Driving through a national park, we saw sloths and monkeys. Then a boat tour along the river and the lagoon. We saw different types of birds, iguanas, caimans and beautiful emerald basilisk. We also walked in the rain forest where we discovered 3 toucans flying through, some poisonous tiny red frogs and a little venomous snake. We then climbed up 440 steps (SHOULD specify in the tour description & restrictions so people with health issues will take note of it!!!) onto the top to enjoy the view of the ocean and the lagoon. We also walked on the beach before enjoying a Costa Rican lunch. All and all, this tour is worth going. it is a memorable one to experience nature in different ways.

    Manuel Antonio is a place that will captivate you with its natural beauty and fun. The tour I did was great, I had a great time both in the national park and on the catamaran. The guide gave us a very complete tour of the park, where we were able to see many animals and plants typical of the area. I really enjoyed seeing the monkeys, sloths, iguanas and raccoons. The park has a spectacular beach, with white sand and turquoise water. The guide told us it was one of the best beaches in the world, and I believe him. After relaxing on the beach, we went to the catamaran, which was very modern and comfortable. The catamaran had music, drinks, fruit and a rich and varied lunch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The catamaran took us along the coast of Manuel Antonio, where we were able to enjoy breathtaking views of the sea and the mountains. The most fun was when we snorkeled in a beautiful bay. The water was clear and fresh, and there were lots of fish of all colors and sizes. We also saw corals, anemones, sea urchins and starfish. It was an amazing experience, which I loved. This tour is one of the best ways to get to know Manuel Antonio, a place that has everything to have a good time.

    We didn’t get the trip we paid for and instead of being on a river boat, like the photos, we were in a dingy and paddled down the river. We never went to the wildlife reserve indicated. We did have a really great lunch at the end and a great tour guide, David.

    Rigo was a wonderful guide for our tour. The moment our tour began, we were welcomed with enthusiasm and knowledge. Carara National Park was our first stop where we viewed birds, reptiles, insects, floral and fauna. The strength of our tour was witnessed by the size our tour which was just 2 people compared to the other tours of dozens in the group. We could ask individual questions and experience the tour in a more personal way. Our next stop was a boat ride on the Tarcoles River. Many varieties of birds were viewed on the river and Pacific Ocean. A few crocodiles were present and we always felt safe. The tour ended on the Pacific Ocean with a tasty traditional lunch. We highly recommend this tour.

    Hello Charlie, we are on Day 6 of our Costa Rica tour and just wanted to say...Wow! Every day has been a new and exciting adventure and Kateri and I are having a blast. You have chosen great hotels and daily tours. And we still have half the trip left to enjoy. We just contacted Sirleny to see if we could add in white water rafting on day 10 and even though it is 8 pm she responded in 30 seconds and said she would look into it and try to make it happen. Thats service! Wow!

    Was a wonderful trip in Costa Rica, we recently came back home from a worldwide trip and we couldn´t forget the wonderful nature and beaches in Costa Rica, the people is lovely, kind and helpful. Drives, guides was professional and charged of knowledge that helped us to enjoy the trip from a destination to another.

    A special gratitude for Mayke, who was our travel manager, who was always at our disposal to put the best destinations of Costa Rica together for us, we really enjoyed, accompanied by the awesome customizing Mayke did, in where all our hotels know from the detail we were traveling in family until the important food preference that we are vegan and my children vegetarian.

    We ended up opting for the tour that included rapids. My mom (retired), myself (upper 40's) and my 18-year-old nephew. Mom decided she'd try the rapids. All of us had an amazing time! I highly recommend any tour offered by this company. Hansell was a fantastic guide and even spotted a sloth for us. They also accommodated a request to take us to an alternate destination (additional charge).

    We had a wonderful day!

    Excellent experience with Ivantours in Tortuguero. The itinerary struck the perfect balance between guided exploration and personal leisure time, allowing us to immerse ourselves at our own pace. Thank you.
