Fortunately it was a beautifully sunny day so the lake crossing was even more enjoyable. The entire trip from pick-up to drop off was well organized and efficient. The vehicles were new and well maintained and the roads, though not well maintained, were not as bad as I was expecting and I strongly recommend this as the best way to travel between these two cities.

This boat trip from Monteverde to La Fortuna was amazing from start to finish. I was informed of my pick-up time well in advance and all communication was very easy via WhatsApp. The pick-up from the hotel in Monteverde, boat ride and the short onward journey were on time, the drivers were super nice and helpful and they also explained many interesting things that we passed. In short, I would book this ride again!

Super efficient. Each step of the journey ran smoothly into the next. The boat part was really relaxing with beautiful views! The drivers were great on some really tricky roads and we stopped for a comfort break halfway on the Monteverde side. Overall a great experience with lovely staff and at an incredible price!
