The hotel is good since you're only there at night. Restaurants choices&menu work well after a long day of sightseeing

We did the 8 day/7night all inclusive trip. It was amazing! What a beautiful country and one that definitely is a don't miss place to visit. Alejandro is a great guide. We enjoyed everyday of jam packed adventure; walking in rain forests, seeing volcanos, zip-lining and hot springs were only a few things we did. The white water rafting was our favorite and a must do.
This trip is based out of a San Jose, where you stay each night. The drive to locations can be long (and scenic) but once you get to your destination it is well worth it! If you only have a week and want to see it all this is the trip to take.

Watching Hummingbirds while having lunch in the restaurant.
Alex was our guide. We did the tour on our first full day in San
Jose City. It was a good starting point for introduction to many
birds and other wildlife. Waterfalls are stunning. Definitely
recommend this tour when staying in San José city.

Great excursion

My daughter and I enjoyed the LaPaz waterfalls excursion and especially our tour guide, Hayro. He was very knowledgeable and he ensured that we had a wonderful experience. It rained the whole time we were there and we weren’t bothered. It was very much worth it.
Loved the aviary.

Such a nice clean attraction. We went during the week and it was not crowded at all. Easy to get some great pictures of the various animals.
Excellent Garden Tour

The Garden was a memorable experience. We enjoyed a comfortable and informative automobile drive from San Jose to La Paz (and back) with our tour guide Jean (Jon). There was a steady fresh rain that fell while we walked about in La Paz Waterfalls Garden which provided a true feeling of being present in the rain forest . Standing among the Humming birds was a highlight. The Falls were incredible as was all the beautiful flora and fauna throughout. Jon guided us through the gardens and was able to answer all our questions and point things out that we otherwise would have missed. The buffet was wonderful. Our guide employed a smart travel strategy by starting the day early and getting back to San Jose before the traffic rush period. As a consequence we had time in the afternoon to enjoy the fabulous National Museum in San Jose which our guide was kind enough to drop us off at.
