Naturalist exploration! heart of ecotourism...

While your stay here, at La Fortuna city, you will feel the need for information, since everything is so unique and interesting, at any moment there is the chance to see something you never saw before, and you will not see again, perhaps! The nature trails by the rain forest are just amazing, like in the movies! But animals are sometimes shy as well. So if they are not showing off, there is many other things to do up in the trees or down the rivers. . . we can customize a day full of adventure and joy! Let me show you my country through local eyes!!!
Pura Vida!

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our third tour with Henry. Having used Henry for a tour with just me and my husband as well as for our family (boys 5 and 8) I can say he is able to design fun days that will engage any age group. This is a great way to experience the "real" Costa Rica and learn about the nature and people of this beautiful country. I highly recommend Henry!
