An optional trip to nearby hot springs offers a relaxing end to your day’s adventure.

We had the best experience with Ecoterra, from the transportation, to the beautiful hotels, and the one time we had an issue, it was handled quickly and efficiently by our Jordy. We would definitely use them again if we return to Costa Rica!
