  • Incredible experience! Very family friendly. The first part is the boat tour, which is full of exotic birds, iguanas, crocodiles, and monkeys. The tour guide narrates, so it has a "national geographic" feel to it. Afterwards, you return to an incredible meal: chicken, beef, and the most exquisite Costa Rica fare we've ever had. We have six children, and the whole staff made us feel at home. It's one of the coolest highlights of our trip. Patricia and Francisco were so hospitable! My hat is off to their entire staff.
  • Value for money. Not only did they accept us on to tour last minute, but they gave us a personalized escort to show us down to the river. On the actual tour, both the driver and guide showed extreme knowledge and professionalism. Got to see several monkeys, birds, Crocs, etc. When returning for lunch, we were served food in abundance, with it being one of the best meals I have tasted here in CR. Only negative is the lack of clarity on website about cost and times of tours--had to wait for email response after making "reservation" online. Wish they had proper online booking available.
