We were so sad after the day ended... because all day we were full with views , food, water, fauna, and very knowledgeable guides who were very eager and enthusiastic to show their piece of the world. Through their conversations were able to transmit the message of the country. The places we visited stunning and for those who have not experienced it before , its a memory that will no go away. we were promised a Typical Costa Rican Meal... we were given even more. the warmth of a family and the smell and tastes of a culture and a attitude towards life. So this day could not have ended better, with a relaxing thermal water bath and a candle light dinner. To think... all this happened while every one was preparing and responding to an extreme weather event ( Hurricane Otto) Thanks to Jacamar team. To seeing you soon . Pura Vida !
We booked a water Rapids tour. Rocky and Sevean were our guides. I felt safe and comfortable with their guidance and experience. We made a pit stop along the bank and had some pineapple, watermelon and coconut cookies. After the tour we were treated to a tasty typical Costa Rican dish with great shakes.
Fauricio is the best tour guide! Our whole group was awesome and we had so much fun. We had no idea the "lunch" provided would be a traditional Costa Rican dish served at a local organic farm, needless to say we loved it! Way better than a sack lunch! We had a blast. If you get Fauricio, Siviany, Roquw or Eduardo, you are in luck and will have so much fun!!! Great trip, thanks guys!
Just have to say how enjoyable today's adventures were with Jose!!! He is very knowledgeable about his country and so very excited to share with everyone!!! He loves his job and it shows!!! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this tour!! He took time to explain many different things to us and had such an exemplary love for nature and his love for nature completely spilled over onto us!!!! This was a wonderful tour! Thank you!! ❤️❤️
Our guide, Jairo, picked us up at our hotel for the 15 minute auto ride to the starting point for the hike. The trail was called Arenal 1968. It takes place on private land and is 4 km in length. It takes about three hours, because of multiple stops to gather information. Jairo, who has a degree in ecology, is a brilliant man who was able to convey a great deal of information in a little time. He not only told us about the volcano, but gave us extensive information about the local flora and f he not only told us about the volcano, but gave us extensive information about the local flora and fauna. The hike can be steep at times and walking over the lava surface is not all that easy. Bring plenty of water and wear strong shoes. There are many photo opportunities, so bring your camera.
