What can I say, this was an amazing hiking experience near San Jose. Transportation was arranged, all meals were provided, couldn't be any easier. If you're looking for a real hiking experience versus a bus walking tour, doticotours is the perfect choice for you.

Eric (owner) and Natalia provided an excellent hiking trip that the locals typically take. The volcano and mountainous sights during the reasonable drive from San Jose to Bajos del Toro were unique to other tours we took...must take photos and an incredible day altogether. Highly recommend you...
