I’m traveling alone. Can I still get the 10% off?
We do require a minimum of 2 people in order to give the Arenal tour discount but if there is already a tour running, you can join as a solo traveler. Please fill out the form and let us know you are a solo traveler so we can check if there is a tour already operating that you can join.
It says tours include transportation. I have my own car, can I drive and meet the group?
The tours do include transportation and even if you rented a car, we recommend taking the transportation as some of the destinations are not open to the public (Rio Frio, Penas Blancas). If you are doing the combination tour or multiple activities in one day, it is best to stay with the group since tours are on a schedule and they cannot wait if you are late.
You can drive to their office in La Fortuna downtown to meet the shuttle for pick up.
I’m staying at an Airbnb/vacation rental. Can I still get picked up?
No, Jacamar does not pick up at Airbnbs and vacation rentals. You will need to go to the closest hotel for pick up and drop off as they can provide transportation to hotels and hostels.
If you rented a car and your vacation rental is far away, you can drive to the Jacamar office headquarters in downtown La Fortuna and park your car there.
**Please note that Jacamar only picks up in the La Fortuna and Arenal area. If you are staying in Monteverde or anywhere else, you need to be in La Fortuna to get picked up.
Can I pay in cash or credit card?
In order to give the 10% off, all tours must be pre-paid via Paypal in full which can be paid with a credit card. We will give you payment instructions when we receive your booking request.
