What people are saying about Alajuela Province

Super efficient. Each step of the journey ran smoothly into the next. The boat part was really relaxing with beautiful views! The drivers were great on some really tricky roads and we stopped for a comfort break halfway on the Monteverde side. Overall a great experience with lovely staff and at an incredible price!

We were picked up punctually at the next hotel on our Airbnb and dropped off in the center of Santa Elena, not far from the taxi rank. We used this tour because the travel time by bus / car was too long for us and would do it again. Unfortunately it rained heavily so that we couldn't enjoy the view at all.

The experience was seemless and flawless. The driver pointed out toucans as we drove and then helped us with our luggage onto the boat.

Great way to experience Lake Arenal when on your way to Monteverde! Why take a boring old bus when you can cruise this beautiful lake!

More around 4 hours in total, but everything was good and fair price.
