FAQs

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION/FAQs: 

- Is this tour good for children? Yes, this is an all-age friendly activity, however, families with small children are highly suggested to book private tours. Given the children's curious nature, it is best to focus the attention on them.

- Is there a children's discount? Children aged 11 or younger  pay less than adults due to a cheaper entrance fee. Their rate is $6 cheaper than adults. Anyone aged 12 years or older pay full fee.

- How can we pay?  Cash please, USA dollars or CR colones or combination.

- How do I reserve? Please send me an inquiry (see form below) provide the required information and your questions. No deposit required, you can pay after the tour is complete.

- Large parties/family rates?  Please inquire below.

- We are interested in a hiking tour, is this possible? My tour is a nature history walk. If you wish to hike the trails of the park to cover those harder/steeper trails you can do that on your own, after our tour is complete. This tour is intended to see wildlife. 

- If we have our own vehicle, can we meet you at the park gate? Yes, please let me know when you inquire so I can discount the non-needed transport. Please note: a parking fee will be charged as the park does NOT have its own parking so all options are private parking outside the gate and fairly close to the park. I will provide directions via e-mail.
