While crocs seem to be the main attraction in Tarcoles, this tour is actually more about birds. Our guide was quite expert in birds and the boat pilot was also excellent. We did see one big croc and several smaller. Lunch was included at a restaurant next to the Tarcoles bridge and it was also quite good. I recommend this... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Papagayo for our honeymoon and we did 3 excursions with J&C during our stay. We did the... More

I can't say enough good things about J&C Tours and the excellent job they did organizing our tours and transportation while in Costa Rica! I was organizing a trip for 37 people plus a few days on my own with my family, so it was important to know we had a reliable and trustworthy source to pull it all together.... More

We soon found out that we struck "gold."Juan picked us up at the airport and tended to our needs. We could easily tell he was proud of his... More

Juan and Carol are the best! They are friendly,prompt,courteous and know Costa Rica! We would highly recommend them and will contact them for our next trip to Costa Rica. We took other trip advisor's advice and used them and were very happy we did. We heard horror stories from others at our hotel about different tour companies and were very... More

We travel extensively, visited Costa Rica over the Christmas/New years holiday. I looked around online prior to going to Costa Rica because I didn't want HAVE to use the hotels tours, I wanted to look around at other options. I found good reviews about J and C Tours and booked some day trips. Thank God! Good call on my part... More

We found JandC tours through reviews that guests had submitted about different hotels in the Guanacaste area. The reviews of JandC were so positive that we chose to use them on our recent trip to Costa Rica. JandC is a small, family owned company run by Juan (the J in JandC), a Costa Rican man and Carol (the C in... More
