About ChepeCletas Tours
ChepeCletas was born in 2010 with the purpose of sharing all the hidden beauty, flavors and culture of San Jose. We enjoy sharing our city either by bicycle or by foot, the best ways to get in contact with and experience our city. San Jose (“Chepe”) is unique, with lots of hidden amazing spots, history, street food, cantinas (traditional pubs), parks, nature, architecture, characters and more. We love to share our city as we know it, as we love it.

We had a great time on our bike tour. Our guide, Malo, was really wonderful. He took us on quite an adventure. He recognized that we were pretty experienced riders, so we took a bit more difficult route in order to go to a beautiful park. He peppered the trip with history and information about the city. Our trip ended at a very nice coffee shop where they explained the growing, brewing and exporting processes of Costa Rican coffee.

Malo was excellent! Great ride around very unique parts if san jose, that we would never see walking. Secret spots, saw a sloth in the city, and learned ALOT of interesting history about san jose and costa rica. Easily traveled 6-7 miles with our young girls. Highly Recommend!

Jorge was a fantastic city walking guide and representative for his city and country. We asked him to focus on Costa Rican history, politics, education, parks and sustainability. We feel so much more informed about this beautiful country as we venture out to other Costa Rican gems.

Chepecletas was a lifesaver for our group! With only one afternoon to see San Jose before continuing on, our group of ten really wanted an introduction to the country, a guided explanation of the area around our hotel, and help navigating a colorful indoor market and our first meal in Costa Rica. Roberto assured us they could work with our group and was constantly supportive and responsive during planning. Our guide, Jessica, was simply outstanding, and we would have taken her along on our entire trip if we could have! Jessica made sure we were prepared for our tour before leaving the hotel (for rain, with dinner money, etc.) then patiently showed us around the market, helped us through a delicious and budget-friendly meal at her favorite market place, and then back on the streets she shared the amazing history of Costa Rica with us while showing us important buildings in the neighborhood. I can’t promise Chepecletas will always be able to bend over backwards to fit your schedule like they did with us, but I know you won’t go wrong taking one of their tours. And I definitely recommend learning about San Jose when you visit!

The tour was great. The guides were youthful and easy to talk to. They provided more than enough information on Costa Rican culture and history. Unfortunately our tour was cut short due to a mishap with a booking through Viator (would not recommend- terrible experience/very unprofessional group). Some highlights of our walking tour included being taken to the currency exchange, highlights of different architectural structures and being able to see the market, which was buzzing with people. If I ever come back to Costa Rica I will be sure to book this tour again.
