This was an Awesome tour! They picked us up from our hotel in La Fortuna. There were only 5 people total in our tour. The Hike it self is not a hard hike BUT I highly recommend renting their rain boots for 3 so bring socks Because the mud was up past out ankles and my shoes kept falling off. All the lookout points and waterfall are Beautiful! And the tour includes lunch at a cute restaurant in the rainforest :

Our guide, Ruben, was helpful, friendly, and full of interesting information. We had a great time and were truly impressed by the remarkably blue water of the river. Be sure to see the spot where the water suddenly looks blue! It was raining when we were there and upon Ruben's recommendation, we rented rubber boots. Good thing we did because our hiking shoes would have been destroyed!
