The hiking was amazing and waterfalls are breathtaking! Daisy was very thoughtful in the trip arrangements and she always helped carry our gears so that we could swim in the waterfalls or crossed rivers more easily. She also let me park my car in her house for overnight. Due to the storm last night, we couldn’t hike the blue canyon for safety precaution. Instead we went to see two blue waterfalls that required short hiking and the experience was just as amazing. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to explore the hidden gems in Bajos Del Toro.

This was a great experience. Daisy took us to the beautiful blue canyon waterfall, which is a place you couldn’t find on your own. It’s approximately 2.5 hrs to the waterfall and 2.5 back. It’s not for beginners, and be prepared to cross rivers and get muddy. Wear close toed shoes that are ok being submersed in the river. There is little elevation. We stayed in a small town near the canyon in a typical Costa Rican home and meal. Daisy was knowledgeable and experienced, and we had a great time with her. She adjusted our excursion last minute and we appreciated the flexibility and personal trip. Definitely worth doing if you’re in Costa Rica! Thanks Javi & Daisy!

This is such a magical experience. The hikes were unforgettable, hiking boots are necessary. Daisy is an amazing guide and Javier and her both have amazing communication skills. They kept me informed and made me feel safe traveling alone. It was a great way to start my trip off and I would recommend any solo traveler or travelers to do this tour.

This tour and place is incredible! Daisy and Javier are so sweet and they took care of us like family! Daisy took the time and effort to get to know us and asked us what we wanted to experience. Anyone who loves nature, hiking, waterfalls and amazing company SHOULD BOOK THIS TOUR! It’s one in a lifetime opportunity and we can’t wait to go back. They even took the time to coordinate with our other guides so we can safely get drop/pick up during some minor road closures. Day 1- we got to the cabin which was really spacious and super cute. It’s located in the middle of the town where everything is super close. Then daisy took me for a walk around town and then we went to go see our first waterfall. The views were incredible and we got to go into the water and swam for a while. Day 2- we got up really early and daisy made the most delicious breakfast ever! We got to a private property and hiked for 6 miles. Each step we took, each rock we saw, and each river we crossed was mind blowing! We got to another waterfall where we had An amazing time and got to swim! We then sat near the river and had a lunch prepared by daisy. Then after resting at the cabin, we visited natural blue ponds, had dinner and just got to hang out with her. It was like the perfect girl’s trip! This was an incredible two days and my fav part of my costa tocan vacation! We even planned for a future trip together where she recommended us to visit other volcanoes and beaches!!! Thanks a bunch daisy!! Loved every minute of it!

My mom and I agree this was the absolute best part of our 9-day trip in Costa Rica! The drive alone was breath-taking, the food was delicioso, and the hikes were even more delicioso. Great communication and even better energy!!
