    I had unique requests and tours to be done around San José and Amanda was extremely accomodating. She provided me with options and helped me program my limited time smartly. We got timely reminders and everything ran smoothly. The tour guide, Adrian, was knowldgeable and the drivers were professional and courteous. Presidente Hotel was great for the cost and conveniently located to get a quick feel for the city sites. The breakfast was delicious! Even though it rained we were able to get the city tour done with some minor adjustment - a stop for a welcomed coffee at the National Theater while the rain stopped. Thank you for a great experience - Pura Vida!

    The tour is very early in the morning which may seem uncomfortable on holiday, but it is well worth getting up for. Our guide Luis was great! We stopped at his “secret” beautiful lookout location on the way to Monteverde and were able to see the lush forest around us along with the sea in the distance and many mountains dotting the landscape. Our driver Hairo was very accommodating. He drove so that we could catch ideal views of the setting sun over the sea on the way back. The included lunch was delicious and the restaurant was also very nice and it came after so many activities of the sky bridges and 13 zip lines so it was later in the afternoon. This turned out to be perfect as we returned back at the hotel after dark. Traffic can be a challenge and it turned out best we hired this agency for our visit to Monteverde.

    When you visit Costa Rica, please be sure to use this day trip to experience the sheer beauty and incredible hospitality of the country. Luis and Hairo also provided great insight into the many other activities and foods to enjoy while in CR. They were extremely friendly and helpful!

    Thank you again for an incredible visit!! Pura Vida!!

    Our cruise ship excursion with Maria Jose Ovares was AMAZING! I’ve been on so many excursions, but hers was one of the best ever! She made us all feel like we were going on a trip with a friend & taught us so much about her amazing country. If you get a chance - REQUEST HER! You won’t regret it!!

    La fortuna fall with adrenaline group. The trip was supposed to be a walk in the ecological park but instead we got to spend 5 mins in 2 small rooms with one type of butterflies and just one type of frogs. The guide was full of himself and not good at explaining anything . The waterfall itself was beautiful !!

    Boreal River has perfected the 5-day Wilderness First Responder course. Their partnership with Coast to Coast Adventures was excellent. I am a Physician Assistant with 22 years of experience in Emergency and Orthopedic medicine. I learned A TON of practical skills for responding to illness and injury in the wilderness.
    The transportation by raft to and from the site was down the beautiful, wildlife-rich Paquare River. We stayed in gorgeous, rustic accomodations and were treated to delicious, nutritious food every day.
    This course is a MUST for anyone wanting to guide others in an outdoor environment or just wants to be prepared for anything on their own adventures.

    Melida organized a wonderful trip for my and my daughters, she understood the goal and planned a full weekend of adventures for us. We did white river rafting, catamaran and snorkel trip, a guided tour of Manuel Antonio and enjoyed the Parador hotel from top to bottom. We couldn't have asked for a better time and Melida was extremely detailed and provided all the information needed for every adventure. See you soon!

    This was my second trip with Tamie and Joe. Although I traveled “solo”, I know know many of the repeat customers as friends. That says a lot. I plan to go on their Cuba trip next year. I totally agree with Shirley’s previous review of the May 2024 trip, so just read that again!

    My daughters trip is less than a month away and they email today saying they are cutting ties with the girl scouts and won't honor the cookie money that they already excepted about half a year ago. This trip has been planned for a year and they pull this one month before the trip? My daughters plane ticket was $1,200 I rearranged schedules and plans, I spent a ton of money to get all the items on their long packing list and they won't even honor the commitment they made! I will not be able to afford to send her if I'm paying out of pocket with less than one months notice! They offered to still let girls go but only if paying out of pocket and not with GS funds meaning many girls won't be able to go. Outward Bound should be ashamed of themselves.
