    We had the most amazing time in Costa Rica! Such a beautiful country with so many things to do and see! Our vacation was planned by Jess Luecke with Costa Rican Vacations. I cannot say enough great things about her promptness, attention to detail and how she nailed this vacation for us! Our hotels, tours and transportation were amazing. Everything was stress free and smooth, basically just had to pack and show up!

    Amanda planned the best trip for us! We stayed 4 nights in La Fortuna & 4 nights in Tamarindo. The activities she planned were amazing! Each day Amanda texted me to let me know exactly what our plans were for the next day & when we would be picked up for our tours. I had one small issue with our second hotel & Amanda was quick to respond & help us with our situation. I would highly recommend Amanda’s services & expertise.

    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!!

    Massiel and Manuel at Costa Rica Specialists helped us plan an amazing 10 day vacation to Costa Rica. They started by inquiring about our interests/ age/ budget and after some email and video call interactions, came up with an itinerary that was perfect for us. All our accommodation was top notch, the guides they chose were very well informed and enthusiastic about their work, and their suggestions for places to see and eat etc all worked out well for us (especially considering we were vegetarians). On day 1, they picked us up from the airport and stayed with us till the next afternoon when we took a flight to Tortuguero. They drove us to our first hotel, escorted us to the Poas Volcano, shared a few meals with us and told us so much about the country that we would not have known otherwise. Subsequently, Massiel kept in touch with us throughout the trip and made sure all our requirements were attended to. Our driver/guides were also flexible and adjusted to a few changes we wanted to make. Every booking and experience was seamless. Massiel and Manuel are very well informed, thoroughly professional, and very reliable. Best way to see Costa Rica! Highly recommended!

    Wonderful experience with Starling. We went to Monte Verde and didn't want to drive the trip. Greenways Explorer was easy to work with. Starling was very friendly, knowledge, and helpful.

    This gentleman is bilingual and a National treasure! We had a special needs young man with us and he & Daniel bonded immediately!! Daniel is a very safe driver and was always early, never late! He is very knowledgeable about his country and is great at imparting that knowledge! He is very personable and also a great deal of fun! On the way to volcano he knew the best road side stands! He brought us to THE best zip line place, San Luis and even got our group of 6 out before the bus load of 35 school kids. I took a walking tour of San Jose with he and his wife and it was the highlight of my trip! I cannot say enough great things about Daniel and in future trips he will be the ONLY driver/ guide that I will contact! He does have a WhatsApp, so if you wish to contact him, let me know! Hate to leave this fabulous country but will be back!!!

    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.
