    This is an adventure park with a purpose. The park's motto is "healthy children help sick children". Costa Rica´s Children´s Hospital is financed by the profits of this park. So if you visit, you enjoy and leave a bit of your money for this excellent institution.

    We did a private custom 10 day family tour with full service from San Jose to Arenal to Manuel Antonio and back to San Jose. The trip was exactly as planned but better! Our driver/guide Jonathan Ramírez was amazing, he always went above and beyond, answering many many questions, and was extremely informative with animals and nature. He went the extra mile helping our curious 3 yo spot sloths through a telescope and help us carry our “extra things” needed for a 3 yo at the beach. Jonathan was very courteous, professional, and extremely knowledgeable of Costa Rica. Highly recommend this company and made sure to ask for Jonathan, you won’t be disappointed!

    Diego. Juan and Richie were all great. The trip up the mountain was difficult for me but Diego was an excellent motivator and very patient while waiting for me to catch my breath. This trip is well worth the money and I highly recommend to all. A wonderful experience.

    Costa Rican Trails planned a 7 day tour for two on short notice - and I cannot sing their praises enough! They were extremely responsive throughout the process of planning the tour, they selected great hotels and tours, the transportation was seamless. I am not a "tour" person, but Costa Rican Trails really helped us plan our travel and selected tours that were unique - leading to a great experience! We were able to enjoy our last minute vacation, with thanks to Costa Rican Trails. I would highly recommend using them to plan a trip to Costa Rica.

    Amelia was fantastic taking her time to explain to me what to expect and the steps needed to prepare for the hike as well as support translating at the little hotel where they didn't speak English. Jenny, our guide did her very best to provide a safe hike up the mountain. These ladies are amazing and I recommend this company for anyone planning a hike to Chirripo.

    My wife and I recently used Ivantours for a trip to Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama. Beautiful places to visit. Regarding Ivantours, the hotels and tours were fantastic. Service provided as per their schedule with a hassle free journey. Our trip to the Ruins of Tikal in Guatemala was impressive, the Baldí Hot Springs Arenal in Costa Rica is worth it, going through the Panama Canal by boat was a dream come true. Thank you Ivantours.

    I traveled with Serendipity in 1999 before I met my husband and had kids! More than 20 years later I knew the only way for me to show Costa Rica to my family was through Serendipity. I was amazed to find many of the people who worked there in ‘99 were still employees today. To me, that speaks to a great organization. We spent almost two weeks adventuring through the country and it exceeded all of our expectations. Lotta worked with me to fine tune our trip before we arrived and Sergio took wonderful care of us the entire time. We appreciated his patience with teaching our children new skills and we all enjoyed learning about the country throughout our visit. The beauty of a Serendipity tour is that you have plan - but there’s room for spontaneous adventure as well! I would not go to Costa Rica with any other company!

    Enjoyed the tour with my son. It was second visit to Costa Rica for me, again with Caravan. The best part was stay in Marriott in Guanacoste.
