Liked the size of the group (small). Good content and activities. Staff were professional and engaging. Guide was well prepared and had a lot of insights and stories to offer. A good ambassador for the country and region.

Bad start to a good tour
January 23, 2020
For this excursion we were told to assemble at 9 AM and when we arrived at the location we found a mostly full bus of people who had been waiting for an hour for us and some others.Evidently the 8AM & 9AM excursions were combined, BUT we were never notified. This was a very embarrassing way to start.The guide gave us a lot of interesting information about Costa Rica as we drove. We had a beautiful nature preserve walk, stopped for a delicious snack of fresh fruit, had a few minutes to taste Costa Rican coffees & shop and then went on to cruise on the Tarcoles River to see huge crocodiles and birds for an hour or so.This was a fun tour.

Rain doesn’t stop us

We saw a variety of terrain in a short period of time. Even a hike on the rain seemed authentic. It was confusing about when or whether to get lunch. Turns out there was a choice: eat buffet or shop.

Superb guide with deep knowledge of the area

Cindy was our guide and Olman the driver. Cindy has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the flora and fauna of Costa Rica and an infectious enthusiasm for her country. She noticed interesting details on the hike and pointed them out. During the hike she suddenly stopped me and said:"Don't step on the ants!" Sure enough, there was a trail of leaf cutter ants crossing the path that I would not have seen. The 3 suspension bridges on the hike are best taken by walking right down the middle to keep them from swaying too much. Our boat captain on the Tarcoles river actually got out of the boat and lured a crocodile onto the river bank in front of him by dangling some chicken in front of him! Another group reported that their captain got into the water with the croc! Have your cameras ready.

Cindy of Greenway Tours was our guide, Olman our driver. Cindy has a superb knowledge of and deep appreciation for the area and its ecology. She enthusiastically and effectively communicates with her clients. If you have hiking poles, bring them on the walk. Be prepared to see crocodiles up close, especially at low tide when they are out on the muddy river banks. Don't be surprised if you boat captain gets up close and personal with a crocodile. Have your cameras ready!
