    I went on a birthday trip with four of my friends. We wanted a day full of adventure and we wanted to see once in a lifetime views. This tour gave us everything we needed from start to finish. The buffet style lunch provided was also delicious. Our tour guide, Julio Cesar was extremely knowledgeable and so much fun to spend the day with. He is a very kind person and took the time to answer all of our questions and didn’t make us feel rushed when we wanted to spend an extra few minutes in certain locations. It was truly a wonderful experience.

    My husband and I had a great day on this tour despite the early morning! The park was beautiful and all of the trails were well marked and easy to walk on. Swimming in the waterfall and our visit to the hot springs were definitely the highlight of our day!

    This was a great excursion. The hike is not strenuous and you get to see some cool volcanic mud pots & steam pots, as well as some animals if you’re lucky. The waterfall is beautiful and the hot springs are a nice relaxing way to finish off the day. Definitely bring a change of clothes, towel, and bug spray

    Our day with Kevin was amazing ! He has 10 years of experiences and was so friendly and professionnal. He gave us history, explanation and details on the guanacaste along the road (the state we were in), on the volcano and on the nature! We learn so much. We train a lot so this hike was a walk for us hahah Its good for beginner and the road was made. Everything is secure. After that we went to see the waterfall and omg it was so perfect ! Undescribable ! Pictures don’t give justice to the real life! We ate so well too, the buffet was diversified and local. In the end we finish at the spa with at least 7 baths. It was raining but it was a vibe because the water was hot. Thank you kevin !!!

    Tour guides, Jorge and Carlos, went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible. I'd highly recommend this tour.

    Santos was an AMAZING! tour guide. He was very informative. He also took the time to look for different species of animals, insects, and plants. He went above and beyond. Please use him for any activities. I recommend him. I give him 10 stars

    This was an absolute amazing excursion. Our tour guide Hector was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We saw a lot of wildlife, volcanic activity, and beautiful landscape. The hot springs were phenomenal.

    I am a solo traveller in Costa Rica and let me tell you - it is super fun and safe. And I made friends everywhere I went. Especially with the people at Native’s way. They are fun loving, caring, professional and go out of their way to make your trip fun and memorable. The tour had a good easy hiking portion for about 2 hours and we saw hot springs along the way. We also spotted different kinds of wildlife, learnt a lot about the flora there. The drive up to the Volcano was an easy 1.5 drive with a stop for breakfast which was simple and hearty. After the volcano hike, we went to the waterfall at the property next door and it was amazing!!!!! The color and the water - I swam to my heart’s content and it was literally perfect. After, we had lunch at this property’s hotel. And then it started raining. But even then, we got to the hot springs and managed to get a dip. Bring flip flops!!! Otherwise you would have to walk on pebble filled ground for about 15 mins before you reach the hot springs (my shoes were soaking went because of the rain, so I decided to be brave and walk barefoot). Although I kinda enjoyed the challenge, I don’t think it is for everyone to do that :) it getting pretty thunderous and rain was getting super heavy so we didn’t have time for the mud bath but it still was all perfect. Got dropped back to my hotel early enough to catch the sunset and enjoy a stroll on the beach before dinner. You want to ask for Ceasar, Pablo and Alejandro for your trips. They were so fantastic!! Enjoy your life! Nisha

    We took the Volcano Hike, Waterfall Swim, and Hot Springs combo on Rincon de la Vieja tour. While it was raining off and on througout the day, our driver Ronaldo and tour guide Caesar (sp?) made the trip very enjoyable for our family. They were very attentive, helpful and knowledgeable about the country and native flora and fauna. The views of the fumaroles and mud pits around the volcano we're amazing. While the hike isn't overly demanding, make sure to wear solid shoes and be prepared for several elevation changes along the path. Lunch was provided at beautiful hacienda with great food. The hot springs were an excellent way to end the day with hot tub temperature waters to relax the tired muscles. Would highly recommend.fSt%qlJi7^8a

    The Volcano Hike, The Falls and The Hot Springs were incredible. Santos was beyond stellar. He was amazing. His passion for the wildlife and the culture were evident when he was sharing about the area and during the hike. We would highly recommend. It was moderately difficult but not hard. We are in our 60s and not fit and we had no tough challenges. Needed a break or two for all the stairs to the Falls or to the Springs, but nothing extraordinary from a challenge perspective. The breakfast stop and lunch were great. Gave a good taste of normal life and foods. The Falls were cold, but refreshing. The Hot Springs were so relaxing that we did not want to get out. The mud bath was the only downer. It was taking a bowl of mud and wiping it on yourself. It was not a soak in mud Springs. Nice exfoliation like a scrub pedicure, but not a whole body detox. All in all, we would love to do it again and would recommend Native's Way and Santos to all.
