Danny was an integral part of our amazing 8-day adventure in Costa Rica. I highly recommend him to all sorts of travelers.
Danny is a professional. He is also very kind, knowledgeable, helpful, clean (in his car and his person), and as two young women (ha, ha, we are in our 50's - but I would send my 20-year-old daughter with him without hesitation) we felt very safe and comfortable at all times. He is very much a kind-hearted father figure who enjoys his work and his country.
I found Danny on Trip Advisor and he has many well-earned great reviews. I contacted him directly through WhatsApp (506-8854-5969) and he continually replied within minutes. His English is excellent, he has extensive knowledge of so many aspects of life in Costa Rica and is more than happy to discuss many subjects or have a quiet ride depending on our preference.
Once again, Danny is very professional, respectful, kind, and a very safe driver. He took great care of us on multiple long drives - 4-6 hours each. He knew the roads very well, knew the best lunch stops for delicious food in beautiful settings, he was always punctual. I felt very safe with his driving (I'm a TOTAL backseat driver in the USA and never once felt nervous with his driving), he warned us ahead of time of the bumpy and curvy roads so we could prepare (I took Bonine and never felt ill), and he offered to slow down or stop at any time we needed. He recommended some restaurants and activities in the locations we stayed at which were always great suggestions - check out Taco Taco for a great group dinner we hosted in Monteverde for my son and his fellow college student friends studying abroad!
Danny's pricing is spot on (I compared a few different options and drivers, and he was on the low end and worth every penny.) I cannot imagine enjoying my trip if we had rented a car or taken such long bus rides ... I would probably still be there trying to find the entrance to our first hotel! So many of the roads there were in awful condition, steep, windy, bumpy, ditches on the sides, motorcycles flying by, pouring rain outside, and Danny easily dealt with all of it in a safe manner.
Danny has been driving and giving tours to various groups all over Costa Rica for 25 years. Once again, I can't recommend him highly enough. I have nothing but positive comments to leave - zero complaints.
Thanks Danny!!! We will miss you and your country until we are able to visit again. Wishing you health and happiness. Pura Vida!
