My husband and I took the Palo Verde River Tour last week in Costa Rica. We were picked up at our resort. Sidar, our driver, and Norman, our guide, we extremely personable and made the entire day tour fun and interesting. They exposed us to the "local" side of the area, first going to the river where men worked all day digging dirt out of the river- something that we would never have seen if we were on our own, Next we went to a park area to see the monkeys, again not what we could have known to go to without the tour. We next took the river tour looking for wild life, after which we we treated to a delightful lunch by locals and a demonstration of pottery making. The tour also included a coffee shop "tour". With Norman giving us an insight to life in Costa Rica, it helped make our stay worthwhile and enjoyable.

Great tour which really gave you a sense of what Costa Rica is all about. Covered little villages, Rivers, pottery, coffee and liqour industry and especially the wildlife. Saw crocodiles, monkeys, birds on the river tour and iguanas in the little village. Our driver Sidar was personable an did a great job driving. The boat driver really knew where to find the river wildlife (talk about eagle eyes!) Our tour guide, Norman Ortega was tremendous. Brought everything together and gave great advice on shopping and was very personable. If you take this tour, request Norman!

We had an enjoyable day visiting the Palo Verde National Park and going on a river boat tour. Our tour guide Freddie & his driver Ernesto picked us up at the scheduled time from where we were staying in Playa Del Coco. Freddie was very personable and knowledgeable on the area. On the way to the park they stopped at a road side farm stand and purchased some fresh pineapple for us to sample. There were four of us on the trip & we had a river boat all to ourselves with Freddie & the boat driver. While we were on the river Freddie spotted bats, monkeys and crocodiles and made sure we were able to get a good view from the boat. On the way back we stopped for lunch which was included with the tour & purchased some pottery. They also spotted Howler monkeys in a large tree over the road and stopped the van so we could get out & get a closer look. They also stopped again at the farm stand so we could purchase some fresh fruits.

We found Costa Rica Unique Tours on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Typically we book tours only through the resorts because of safety concerns etc but because of the great reviews decided to book with Frank The Tank. It was amazing and perfect in every way. We booked transfers and the Miravalles tour. Our driver was Sidar, what a pleasant man. He greeted us at the airport and was super kind and hospitable. Our ride to the hotel was like a mini tour it self.

On our tour day we met Harold our tour guide and to our pleasant surprise Sidar was our driver again. We were a small group (only 5 people) which made it great. Harold is very knowledgeable, funny and a true proud ‘Tico’. They love their country and are so proud to share it on their tours.

The tour to Miravalles was awesome, we went to 2 waterfalls, hanging bridges, horse back riding, visited the volcano and had an awesome time playing and relaxing in the mud. Additionally we had an amazing lunch in a small restaurant.

I highly recommend Harold, Sidar and Tours with Frank The Tank. Their prices are very reasonable, they are very knowledgeable, you won’t regret it. Don’t book tours through the resort. You will overpay and take a tour on their time with another 50 people. Bask in the Pura Vida way of life, at least when le on vacation.

I can’t wait to go back to Costa Rica!
