Ever so often, I run into people that provide services beyond expectations. During our recent visit to Montezuma I met two such individuals. Do consider them both in your future travel plans. For the record, I have no financial or business interest in this matter.

Eduardo Sanchez is a reliable driver and knowledgeable guide. He picked us at the Tambor airport and also drove us back. He has a well kept air-conditioned van. We went on a tour of the Curu Wildlife Reserve with him. He was always impeccably punctual. He knows all the local flora and fauna. He speaks very good English and, as we were told, French. His home phone number is (506)26420186; cell (506)88484176; e-mail montezumanaturetrails@yahoo.es.

The other person who helped us a lot was Mario from the Ylang Ylang resort. He can help you arrange transfers, accommodations, and tours throughout the Nicoya Peninsula.

His e-mail is villumv@hotmail.com

We had good experiences with both gentlemen as well. I believe Mario used to work in the US.

We had the honor and privilege of meeting both Eduardo and Mario!!! Eduardo was our driver and Mario went over and above at Ylang Ylang. Both were FABULOUS with our 6 year old. In fact, he still asks about them.

Eduardo was the first person we met getting off the plane in Tambor and Mario was the first person we met arriving in Montezuma - now that is a PERFECT start to a wonderful vacation!!!!
