Invaluable guide for our Costa Rica experience. We stayed for a week in Atenas and had a number of "adventures" planned. Walter navigated heavy traffic, windy roads, rain, and wind to make our vacation memorable. His knowledge of the attractions, culture, and food was amazing....More

Hello, We will be staying at a home in Atenas later this month and are interested in going to Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens. I am not sure if it is possible to do both on the same day. There are three of us and I am thinking we could go on either Sat. Feb. 26 or the Sun. the 27th. Can you give me an idea what you would charge and the length of the trip?

I am coming to Costa Rica in August for language school. Prior to school I would like to have a driver for some sightseeing. The arrival date is Aug. 2nd. Our interest is possibly visiting a wild life rescue and maybe Turtle Island would you be available? On the 5ht I need to get to Santa Elena.
