About Us

Why travel with us?

Ecoterra Costa Rica Local Tour company in Arenal was created as a result of more than 20 years’ experience in Costa Rican tourism. Our personalized services with small groups and added values give our clients the assurance that when traveling with us they will be enjoying a true contact with nature. We invite you to discover the wonders of our natural beauties of costa rica with us. Our experienced team awaits, with open arms, to make your visit a unique and unforgettable experience. 


With more than 12 years distinguishing ourselves as local tour company in the operation of naturalistic tours in Arenal, we are located in La Fortuna de San Carlos, with close proximity to the main tourist attractions of Costa Rica such as the Fortuna Waterfall, The Arenal Volcano National Park, Rio Celeste and many other natural beauties of la Fortuna de San Carlos that you should know on your visit to Costa Rica. 

  • There are so many places to see and adventures to be had – from its gorgeous beaches, misty cloud forests, extraordinary wildlife, lush rainforests to active volcanoes. It is impossible to see Costa Rica in merely a week.
  • Want to stay connected during your trip in Costa Rica? Buy a prepaid SIM card. It is cheap and easy!
  • Forget Google Maps. Download WAZE. The North Americas rely heavily on Google Maps for navigation. But in Costa Rica, everyone uses WAZE. 
  • US dollars are widely accepted in Costa Rica, especially at hotels, restaurants, and tour agencies. Even at local supermarkets!
  • It is true that you can go on self-guided hikes and tours at many places. But you will see so much more than expected if you join the experts on guided tours. Although guided naturalist tours are a bit more expensive, they will leave you an unforgettable memory!
  • Note: many of these tours include hotel pick-up and drop off so there’s no need to worry about transportation.
