I contacted Desafio for assistance in putting together an itinerary for an 11 day trip to Costa Rica. A few emails back and forth and we had an itinerary that included all lodgings, transportation and tours. When I requested an adjustment to one of the tours when I learned of something new before our trip, they were happy to accommodate... More

I recently went through Desafio to book a number of my tours while in Costa Rica. They offer a great range of tours for all people from wildlife viewing to adrenaline fuelled activities such as ziplining, white water rafting and rapelling. They were very helpful in booking all my trips and pretty much everything run very smoothly. All the staff... More

We were staying in La Fortuna for a few days and really wanted to see Monteverde. However, we didn't want to drive ourselves. We contacted Dasafio tours after we received their name as the best company for a day trip from La Fortuna to Monteverde and booked the tour effortlessly via email. Let's just say that we could not have... More

I worked with Fabiola Fuentes - all of my interactions were through chat on their website - she secured a hotel, and activities, including a day and night hike in Monteverde, as well as zip lining in Monteverde, and a combo tour in Arenal. I was nervous with our activities taking place on xmas - but everyone of the buses... More

I and couple of other friends bought a complete adventure vacation package from this company. Valery was a pleasure to work with. She was always very prompt with her replies and was eager to work things out. The vendors the company work with are amazing as well. They go above and beyond to make you feel safe. All the individuals... More

Great company to book your entire trip to Costa Rica. They have extensive operations in both Monteverde and Arenal, as well as good transportation options. I was happy with the pre-trip booking process as well as the actual activities. Most of the travel agencies have the same price for each activity, so I'm happy with our decision to not shop... More

Desafio Monteverde Tours was a very good service that was used on my 2 week trip to Costa Rica. They were very accommodating, patient, quick to respond and open to making any changes to the itinerary we wanted. You can either just book an excursion with them or book a full itinerary with accommodation through Desafio. Either way they were... More

Desafio were tremendous. Due to unexpected travel delays, Darlene helped change my itinierary quickly and gave me the best experience I could have in my reduced time. I felt well taken care of by the company and made sure I had an enjoyable time while traveling by myself. I was amazed how quickly new arrangements were made and kept things... More

Darlene and the team have been very supportive! The activities and the trip were awesome from the start to the end (simplicity, convenience, fun,..). I would definitely recommend it to any solo traveller as you keep the freedom of travelling by yourself and not being locked up in a big group, but at the same time, you meet people and... More

Desafio organize everything for my week stay in Costa Rica. I told two agents, Fabiola and Valery, the excursions I wanted to do and they mapped it all out for me for an extremely reasonable price. I went to three cities, and everything was SO organized. Transportation was always on time or early, the guides were fantastic, friendly, and knowledgeable,... More
