    Maite Joaristi was our travel consultant with Costa Rican Vacations and she did an excellent job. The hotels were fabulous. The transportation arranged was also great. They were available for questions and help during our trip and food a great job when we wanted to change a few plans along the way. Very pleased and would use them again.

    WOW! Amanda is fantastic! I've never used a travel agent before and usually like to do all my own research but I decided to use Amanda for our trip to Costa Rica. We wanted and adventurous vacation and wanted to see the different eco systems that Costa Rica has to offer. She planned an amazing vacation for us that kept us super active but also provided excellent hotels that we were so happy to relax at in the evenings. One of them even had natural hot springs and we really enjoyed them after our long hikes. It was so nice to not have to worry about anything. The transportation she provided worked so smoothly and were always on time. She provided a private van for the longer trips so we could spread out and relax for those drives. The drivers for the longer trips were always willing to stop for a bathroom break or snack break. We were all surprised at how quickly she responded to any texts that we sent. I don't think it ever took her more than 5 minutes to reply no matter the time of day. I would definitely recommend using Amanda to plan your vacation to Costa Rica.

    We had Louis as our guide and he was terrific. He clearly loves nature and his country and shared lots of information with us about Flora and fauna. As we were hiking through the cloud forest and hanging bridges, he was constantly on the lookout for wildlife to show us, and then he found five monkeys and was as excited as we were. Louis also shared really interesting facts about the flowers that we saw. He was very attentive to our needs. When I wanted to go on the zip line and my husband did not, he found an alternative activity for him, taking him to a coffee farm tour! We highly recommend this tour company and Louis in particular, along with the driver Johan, who expertly navigated the curves and potholes of the roads.

    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!

    This trip exceeded our expectations! We were fortunate to view quiete some wildlife and the stunning beauty of the Golfo Dulce. Tropical Sea Kayaking set the stage by providing exemplary service, delicious and nutritious meals, comfortable and clean accommodations and served up with a positive attitude. Matias, our guide was very knowledgable and adept at educating about the area, animals and indigenous people. Saladero Ecolodge was fantastic. The setting is extraordinary - a private reserve fronted by the Golfo Dulce and tucked on the edge of a national park. I highly recommend this unique experience.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.
