Just finished an unforgettable 8 day trip to Costa Rica with my daughter. We received quotes from several travel groups but found James from Costaricavacationexperts.com to be reasonably priced and his attention to detail and expert advise had us sold. The excursions and accommodations exceeded our expectations. Every tour pickup arrived at each of our hotels promptly. Our private driver... More

Description says 6:30 pick up – got a call at 6:05 asking where we were…. The tour guide says “Didn’t they notify you of your 6 am pick up?” – Ah, no. This was a very disappointing start to the tour. HOWEVER, Miza, our tour guide, was the humblest, funny, knowledgeable, amazing guy ever! Thank God we had him. He’s... More

I had a great time with this tour. One can basically cover almost everything in Costa Rica with this tour. I loved it. Waterfalls, coffee, animals, etc. the only thing I believe should be improved is the communication between the buyer and seller in order to inform what should we bring and where are we going.

Our immediate family of 11, ages 12 through 70, used James of Costa Rica Referrals to plan our July, 2016 50th wedding anniversary trip. We could not have been more pleased with the attention to details that James made to make our trip just what we wanted. We had many, many activities to choose from, hikes, jungle tours, zip lining,... More

We booked our hotel transfer and the mega combo tour...it was perfect! Our driver was on time and so friendly. The excursion was amazing... So much fun! Highly recommend this for everyone, our group had people who ranged in ages from 37 to 80 years old. Don't forget to bring a change of clothes and under garments.

I can not speak highly enough of Costa Rica Referrals. James was the agent that I worked with to plan this trip for my extended family (11 of us ages 12 to 70). He listened to what we were interested in and gave us many options to choose from. He arranged all of our transportation from being picked up at... More

We just came back from our first vacation in Costa Rica. I was put in charge of the travel arrangements for our group, and being that we had never been to the country, I had no idea where to stay. I read about Costa Rica Referrals and decided to send them an email. That was the best decision I could... More

I was in Costa Rica from April 1 to May 1. Part of my trip was arranged by a friend of mine so I could not change the dates/places etc. I wanted to spend up to another 3 weeks before and after the trip with my friend and I wanted to visit five national parks. During my research, I found... More

"They know where to go, when to go, and who to go with". This is their logo and it is correct. My agent, James, is well-experienced and excellent at pairing the customer with an individualized itinerary. This was my first time outside the USA and it did feel foreign. C.R.Referrals provides 24 Trip Support that is truly complete and at... More
