My wedding party of 18 (14 adults + 4 children) had an amazing experience with Hernan. We nicknamed him via his middle name Diego like from the kid's show Dora the explorer to befriend my 3-year-old niece for the horse and zipline part. He was so friendly, funny, knowledgable, well English spoken, accommodating to all, but really appreciate how he... More

Such a fun day fishing with our captain Alberto and Israel on Gulf of Papagayo! Carlos from Alex on the Beach was super helpful in getting us organized. Him and Sebastian were very honest that it wasn't the best time of year to catch big game fish, but could still guarantee a good time. Well worth it for the money... More

We had read reviews about Alex on the beach and decided to ask them about trips to various places when we stayed at Riu Guanacaste for the last two weeks. Both Sergio and John Wayne were incredibly helpful and after our first meeting they greeted us like old friends and remembered our names! We used them for trips to Finca... More

From the Dreams hotel in Guanacaste we booked with Kenny (see my picture) literally on the beach as you exit the hotel. Everything promised in the tour was delivered and the trip through customs was smooth and our guide apparently knows everyone working there. The hotel warns about booking with outside companies but this one you can trust and is... More

We began to correspond with Alex a few weeks before arriving in Costa Rica & our experience was amazing from start to finish. DO NOT BOOK WITH NEXUS TOURS/SUNWING. Please email Alex or go talk to him on the beach upon arrival. You will not be disappointed. Alex allowed us to modify our tours to suit our preferences with zero... More

It was our first time in Costa Rica and we wanted an adventure. Zip lining was not what we were looking for and Alex on the beach delivered two great excursions. First we went to a Costa Rican mud bath along with some crazy suspended bridges and hiking. Amazing! The other day was spent traveling to Nicaragua. Peering into a... More

Booked three trips for our party of 10 with John Wayne in front of Riu Palace. Nicaragua, Finca Verde and sunset sailing were all excellent. They have an excellent selection of excursions and John is always available and very helpful. Recommended

We booked 2 excursions with Sergio thru the Tour company Alex on the beach. I found them online prior to our trip and they told me where I could find them outside of the Riu Guanacaste resort. Sergio was great to work with, we did the Pure Adrenaline tour, the tubing was the highlight of our trip! We also did... More
