What To Expect
Our tour begins when our guide pick you up at the lobby of your Hotel and move to the northern part of the country, being unavoidable to make a brief stop in the famous town of Sarchi, internationally known for its laborious artisans who give Sarchi renown as the cradle of the Costa Rican Crafts.
Following our trip we will pass through plantations of various agricultural products, ornamental plants, cattle farms, until we reach the town of La Fortuna to have lunch in a cozy restaurant just in front of the Volcano.
At Místico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park, the junction between the two types of ecosystems forming a transitional vegetation strip with high biodiversity occurred.
Finally, we will rest in one of the best hot springs in the area, where you can optionally have the oportunity to have a massage or spa treatment booked in advance. After dinner we will return to San Jose.
Admission Ticket Free
Got to see lots of animals this trip. Su h as a tapir, two troops of capuchin monkeys, a lizard and iguanas. The forest is beautiful as well as the beach. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area.
I made the arrangements through email prior to arriving. There was no language barrier and the process was very easy. We took 3 tours, irazu volcano and Vista to orosi Valley (and requested trip to ruins of Santiago apostol for no extra charge); Arenal hanging bridges and tabacon hot springs; and per their recommendation, switched the rio sarapiqui boat tour, poas, doka and la paz.
The vehicles were in great condition with air conditioning. We booked a group tour with a multiple trip and cash payment discount. Prices were very reasonable. They only do small group tours which we prefer over a charter bus, but we were the only two so it was basically a private tour.
Arturo was an amazing tour guide, driving safely and providing just enough information to inform us of the area without overwhelming us with constant information. He arrived on time and identified himself so we found him easily outside the hotel.
They let us know exactly what to bring for each tour (passport for Poas) and appropriate clothing.
They were incredibly flexible with their tours, they allowed us to cut our hot springs tour short because it had started raining, and even got our included dinners to go.
We left our camera in the van after the last tour and didn't realize it until we were packing to go home. We called them and they immediately came back to the hotel to give it to us.
We ended up having to switch hotels and they had no problem picking us up at a different location. We needed to get cash, but had difficulty finding an ATM that would accept our debit card, so they took us to multiple banks until we found one that did.
Destiny tours went above and beyond our expectations.
I highly recommend this tour company and would book through them again if we ever travel back to Costa Rica.
