Our tour in Costa Rica was operated by Costa Rican Trails. Víctor Sánchez was the manager and he was amazing. He greeted us at the airport and sent us off to Arenal with Gunner, the driver. He was very nice, he had an amazing smile and very affable way. It was a wonderful trip to the resort.

Costa Rican Trails was also the outfit that took us from Arenal to Bajo de Toro for the next resort. They did a wonderful job on that drive as well.

And Gunner came to pick us up in El Silencio to take us back to the airport.

It was an incredible vacation. All arranged by Beyond and Back Travel. Amazing.

I can't begin to say enough positive things about our experience with Costa Rican Trails. I have traveled extensively and used many tour companies in the past but rarely feel moved to write a review. Our guide was HENRY and our driver was WILLIE and they both went above and beyond! We traveled with a group of 18 to Arenal and Monteverde. Henry's enthusiasm and love of his country touched every interaction. Henry made it his goal to make sure that we got to see as much as possible. He carried his scope with him everywhere and was always on the lookout. Henry is extremely knowledgeable from the plants to trees to wildlife. When a couple members of our group fell ill, Henry went above and beyond to organize what was needed from different transportation to a cup of soup/broth to soothe. And Willie even doubled back to pick people up that chose not to do an excursion. Henry organized our excursions and was always present to make sure they went smoothly... from hanging bridges, to ziplining, to dinners and hotels, to the hot springs. Willie was an amazing driver - safe and courteous and had a wonderful personality to match! PURA VIDA and thank you to HENRY and WILLIE!

Fantastic trip with such personal attention from Victor. Right from his welcome meeting when we landed at the airport to him seeing us off for our flight home.
Each trip was selected to take account of my walking disability and all transfers were right in time.
He kept in touch throughout the trip and made changes when we asked.
Could not have gone better!

I experience anxiety and was concerned about the coordination of the trip as it was through different agencies. However, everything worked out well and when minor things happened they were always available on "whatsapp" to provide updates and reassurance. They were very flexible when we wanted to change the itinerary slightly at the end. I would highly recommend this tour and this company. We had the trip of a lifetime. Pure Vida

Review of OASIS TROPICAL, PLAYA DEL COCO, COSTA RICA

We stayed at Oasis Tropical in 2023, and have a few things to say about the place.

Con:

There is no hot water in the kitchen, doing dishes is a chore.
NO on site laundry facilities. We took our laundry out once at a cost of $40.00us so boiled water and did it in the sink after that.
The pots and pans are crap, when I used them the coating came off in my food, very unsanitary and dangerous.
No bowls, can openers, dish towels, measuring cups, etc. Not a well stocked kitchen.
We were told our sheets and towels would be changed every 3 days, it ended up being every 7 days.
The condo sleeps four but there are only 2 chairs for sitting outside.
No tables or chairs to sit on in the back of the unit either.
The pool does not have a safety rail for getting in and out of.
There is no BBQ for use even though they told us there would be.
Only 6 lounge chairs at the pool.
The gazebo has 3 tables and 12 chairs in it, not enough for the amount of people that can stay there.
They want payment by cash only, if you use credit card they charge a whopping 23%. We were not told of this until after we arrived!!!
No receipts are issued for any money paid!
It is not close to anything. You need to have transportation or (if you can get one) a cab. Or be willing to walk a long way.
No one to meet you when you arrive.
NO safe in room

Pro:

The grounds are amazing, extremely well kept.
The housekeepers are friendly and do a great job.
The condo is very comfortable with 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen.
Lots of parking

Following a beautiful cruise along the west coast of Panama and Costa Rica, we enjoyed a four day extended land tour with Costa Rican Trails. This was an exceptional visit for us, not only was the country magnificent, but the organisation for this trip was fantastic. Our Guide, Edourdo and driver, Jorje were wonderful. Knowledgable, fun, professional and caring. They went out of their way to ensure we saw as much as possible and their enthusiasm and pride in their amazing country was a joy to behold. I highly recommend this company and would have no doubts about using them agin should I ever get the opportunity to return one day. Pura Vida!

Perfectly organized. Every step of the trip was seamlessly organized. Our drivers, guides and accommodations couldn’t be better. Our tour manager Victor was extremely responsive, even with last minute requests. The hotel operators and staff were warm, friendly and helpful. Highly recommend night tours. And in Arenal/La Fortuna, the highlight was gently rafting the river and the tour/lunch at the family owned cocoa farm. An amazing country and can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend Costa Rican trails

Costa Rican Trails planned a 7 day tour for two on short notice - and I cannot sing their praises enough! They were extremely responsive throughout the process of planning the tour, they selected great hotels and tours, the transportation was seamless. I am not a "tour" person, but Costa Rican Trails really helped us plan our travel and selected tours that were unique - leading to a great experience! We were able to enjoy our last minute vacation, with thanks to Costa Rican Trails. I would highly recommend using them to plan a trip to Costa Rica.

We have just come back from an incredible 2 week trip to Costa Rica designed and organised directly with Costa Rican Trails in San Jose. We went to Tortuguero for 2 nights, then picked up a hire car and went to Arenal for 3 nights, then Monteverde/St Elena region for 2 nights, before finishing in Playa Hermosa in Guanacaste for the final 4 nights, then driving back to San Jose. Everything was organised perfectly by our CR Trails agent Marcela Garita, all the drivers and guides for the nature tours arrived spot on time and were fantastic, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We loved the independence of having a car to do our own things along the way, such as getting to and exploring remote and quiet beaches, finding quiet sodas to eat at, driving to plunge pools in rivers etc. Costa Rica is a stunning country and very easy to travel in! Pura Vida!

Our travel agency worked with Costa Rica tours to plan out a 9 day trip for our family. Every transition and transfer on the ground was smooth - including having appropriate car seats ready and waiting in every vehicle for our small kids! Milena, our assigned POC while in country, checked in regularly and even took care of ordering breakfast for us for our early departure on our last day.

I would absolutely recommend this team to anyone planning a big trip, especially if you’re organizing logistics for small kids.
