Our resort was the Andaz Peninsula in Guanacaste, which is about a forty five minutes from the Liberia airport (LIR). Carlos was already there when we arrived, even though it took more than one hour to get... More

John, Thank you very much for posting this positive review. However, we will take advantage of this review to spread a communication in regards to a very common issue that we are facing nowadays, neither David nor DJ work for Issys Tours, actually, we do not have any sales reps on the beach/resort, the only way to book a service...
