The staff is responsive - always answering within a day; flexible and resourceful - able to work with me to tweak itinerary, swapping hotels and activities.

I booked two day trips from San Jose, one to La Paz and one to Manuel Antonio. The tour guides were great, friendly and so interactive. Food was lovely too. The sights were great despite the never ending rain (October). I was very happy with the bookings!

We had 10 days with the fantastic, patient, knowledgeable guide, Vinnie, firstly as a couple then in a group of 11. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was organised as expected; when there was a discrepancy between our itinerary and his - all was sorted without hassle and when there was a chance to see turtles laying and hatching -...

My boyfriend and I booked a zip-lining and white water rafting combo tour through Costa Rican Trails, and had an excellent time. We were staying in San Jose and didn't have the option to travel very far in one day, and this tour was perfect for that. The only hiccup we experienced on the whole trip was our pickup -... More

Costa Rican Trails acted as the local partner for the UK-based travel firm we used for a two-week tour through Costa Rica. All the arrangements they made for us and their customer service was faultless. We would be more than happy to use them again if/when we return to this part of the world.

We had a group of 15 people fly into San Jose and needed transportation to Arenal, Guanacaste, and back to San Jose. Instead of renting three or four cars, we coordinated an 18 person van through Costa Rican Trails.
