Let me say this up front about TOMATO ADVENTURES...best decision we ever made in 3 trips to Costa Rica! Tomato (Mauricio) is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and reliable businessman. He started his business for all the right reasons and chooses to keep it small and personable. My husband and I are in our early 60's and choose to not drive while... More

We went on several tours with Tomato out of Tamarindo Costa Rica and were very pleased! He is knowledgeable of the area, great personality and so reliable. From the Buena Vista tour (zip lining, horseback riding, Waterfall hike, hot springs/bud baths), to ATVs on the beach and a sunset catamaran cruise - he did not disappoint. He was very accommodating... More

"Tomato" (yes, he is a guy!! His ruddy complexion led friends to call him "Tomato.") has been an excellent vacation services guide since I first encountered him back in 2010. Our vacation group usually numbers around 16 or so. Cheerful, courteous, reliable, energetic, mature, patient, and scrupulously honest. Mauricio speaks excellent English and his communications are very responsive as he... More

Tomato took us on several tours, and he was fantastic! His personality, combined with his reliability and his knowledge of and evident pride in Costa Rica, make him the perfect guide. Highly recommend!

This is our second time using Tomato in Costa Rica. He is completely reliable and is very responsive to all communications. I find this extremely beneficial when booking airport transfers and excursions from the States. He provided airport transfers to and from our resort at Dreams Las Mareas for our family of six at a much cheaper rate than what... More

Tomato is a wonderful tour guide. We went on four tours during the week and everything was as expected with excellent service from beginning to end. Tomato is friendly, funny and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend and reuse this tour guide service.

You couldn't ask for a better tour guide. First class service from beginning to end, we got everything we wanted and then some, because Tomato is not only affable and completely accommodating, but he is like traveling with your own complete Encyclopedia. Whether it's history, culture, geography or current affairs, we could not ask a question that he didn't have... More
