Tamarindo Snorkel & Sunset Cruise with Lunch
"My fiance and I loved that this tour was a five minute walk from our hotel in Tamarindo. The guides were easy to find and were very welcoming. The group size was perfect for the size of the catamaran. We enjoyed laying on the nets and soaking up the sun while feeling the breeze from the ocean. The guides were very good at making sure everyone had drinks and were enjoying themselves. The Pina colada was better here than anywhere else. There were many places to sit on the boat and a great indoor shade area to escape the sun. Snorkling was a blast and we saw many fish. When we arrived back at the boat from swimming the one of the guides let me know he had people wait for seconds for the delicious BBQ until we had been served our first plate. I thought this was extremely thoughtful. The food was good! We were very lucky to have an amazing sunset and it concluded a very romantic evening for my fiance and I."..."

Wildlife Safari Tour
"This was a full day of Costa Rican culture, wildlife and fun! Norman Ortega was our guide and we were lucky enough to have him to ourselves for the day. We began by stopping for breakfast at a typical grocery store where we were able to purchase a delicious breakfast. We were also given the option to stop at a supermarket to pick up supplies and use the facilities. On to the 2 hour river trip where we saw monkeys, birds, iguanas and crocodiles. What an experience! Norman then took us to a restaurant where we had lunch waiting for us because Norman pre-ordered what we wanted and reserved a table. I had steak and my husband had chicken. Both were very tasty and generous with rice, beans, plantains, veggies and dessert. The restaurant even had a butterfly enclosure! After that we drove through the rainforest on the Caribbean side to a Wildlife sanctuary where we were guided by Ana, a lovely girl who knew where to find sloths, monkeys, toucans, and many other animals. Next stop was the Cortez waterfall where we were amazed by the beauty and were able to swim. The tour took about 10 hours from pickup to dropoff at our hotel.All in all, a great value and Norman was a gem. He is extremely knowledgeable about his country, its history and keeps it all interesting. Highly recommended."..."
