      Three of us booked this trip as our final day outing adventure in Costa Rica. Because we were staying at a VRBO, we asked the tour company Arenal Adventures to pick us up at the Arenal Country Inn, a 500 meter walk from our rental. They were right on time, with a large tour bus that was 75 full so, room for us to stretch out.

      The tour description is pretty clear that you have a 90 minute bus ride to the los banos and coffee break stop, with that same 90 minutes back. Our tour guide was fluent in English and had a nice 20 minute talk with jokes. There's a restaurant along the way that usually has dozens of large iguanas in the trees, and he pointed them out as well.

      All the Rio Frio tour boats take off from one dock area and head upstream for a few miles at a slow pace. The boats are covered with easy access though you need to be able to handle a half dozen steep and sometimes wet steps.

      The amount of wildlife is fantastic, and our guide was first rate in spotting and sharing with us. Most of the animals are used to the tour boats, so we could come within a few meters of the banks and the trees and hang out watching monkeys, caimans the local alligator, herons, kingfishers, more iguanas, basilisks and sloths.

      Although there were half a dozen tour boats operating, they all had a system to stay far away from each other while still getting plenty of wildlife viewing in.

      After the two hour cruise, we had a nice almuerza de Tico, with arroz con pollo y frios.

      Overall, one of our less aerobic outings, but a nice way to end our trip.

      Excellent tour. Our guide, Victor, as well as the bus driver and boat driver were fantastic at spotting wildlife mainly birds, but also bats, reptiles and monkeys. I would highly recommend this tour.

      This was ok if u need a relaxed type of tour after a high intensity one. The cruise was nice and our tour guide Victor pointed out lots of birds and animals. I recommend that you take a high powered DSL camera with zoom lens to be able to take pictures of the animals, they are so far up in the trees

        Calificación General: 6/10
