          Hello, we booked the 3D/2N Adventure Package as part of our honeymoon. It already includes these tours in the price: Introductory Tree-Climbing, Waterfall Tour with Rappel and Horseback Ride through the Farm. May we complete all these tours on Day 2? The reason is that we will arrive late afternoon on Day 1 (picking up car from SJO Airport starting 10:30AM) and leaving Selva Bananito on Day 3 at 5 AM to meet our rafting group in Siquirres town at 8 AM. We don't mind to do tours late afternoon upon our arrival on Day 1 if they are offered then. (It's our fault for not inquiring about specific itinerary before booking... We hope we can still enjoy those tours on Day 1 / 2.) Gracias!
