After a referral from a friend, we booked a 10 day trip to Costa Rica with Valle Dorado. They handled all the accommodations, transfers, and excursions. The entire experience was top-notch. Our family includes 2 8 year olds so it was important that all the height/weight restrictions for zip-lining were checked in advance. # Before the trip We had very... More

We used this company to take us from a cruise ship in Caldera to the airport in San Jose to include a tour of San Jose. The driver was on time and polite though spoke limited English. They provided a large van for three people, a service dog and a manual wheelchair so we had plenty of room. The tour... More

Valle Dorado did a phenomenal job with our group. They kept our kids busy on this 4 night/5 day trip, taking care of everything from soup to nuts. Their meal providers were spot on as were the hotels they chose for accommodations. Irene and Jorge are a pleasure to deal with!

We scheduled the Pacuare whitewater River Rafting tour thru Valle Dorado and were very pleased! They were one of the few who could arrange transportation from La Fortuna for a 1 day tour. All arrangements were through & the day was fun & we felt very safe!

I had the visit of a nephew and no time to go with him on tour so I called Valle Dorado and in no time they organized a White Water Rafting tour for him, which he enjoyed very much. The service was very diligent, everything was on time, my nephew was more than happy and so was I!
