What people are saying about Liberia, Costa Rica

The people at the front desk at this resort were amazing and very accommodating as we were running late for our tour. I believe our tour guide was Eric. He was amazing! Very confident riding horses, which made us feel more confident knowing that he was always there to help if we needed anything. The horses were very well behaved, and seemed happy and well-fed. Oropendola waterfalls is unreal! Absolute paradise!

It was very relaxing and the hosts were easy to communicate with and informative. Overall, it was a wonderful time. Ask for Kevin as a tour guide on the hike-he was the best photographer and really helped capture how awesome the experience was.

Amazing experience- Ivan was such a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide! Only thing to note is that it will not get back on time. We read reviews and expected this, so we didn’t plan anything afterwards- it ended up being 11 hours.

amazing. so fun and beautiful. the waterfalls are breath taking.

Juan was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly.
