We booked two excursions with Papagayo (mega combo tour and Nicaragua). Both tours were amazing! The mega combo tour consisted of zip lining, horseback riding, hot springs and mud bath and waterslide. These activities were located in the same area. For the Nicaragua tour, we visited the Masaya volcano, flea market, had lunch, went on a boat ride to see... More

My girlfriend and I recently spent a week in Costa Rica, and we hired Vargas Tours for 2 excursions. The first was a zipline/whitewater rafting excursion to Rincon de La Vieja with a tour of Liberia city afterward, and our guides Robert, and Rodney went above and beyond to make our experience fantastic. Right off the bat they made us... More

Lupita was quick in responding, and very informative in her scheduling emails. We stayed in guanacaste, Costa Rica. We used Vargas Tours to book a waterfall adventure in Miravalles, Costa Rica. This included ziplining, hiking, waterfall adventures, mud baths and hot springs. Our guide, Rodney, was fantastic. He explained everything to us and gave us fun and interesting information about...

The trip included ziplining, rainforest hike across cable bridges to waterfalls, horseback riding, lunch, and hot springs. Our tour guide provided interesting and educational facts about Costa Rica during our trip. The ride from our hotel was about 1.5 hours but there... More

My wife and I were staying at the RIU Resort Guanacaste for our honeymoon during high season in January. We elected to take the Miravalles Waterfall Excursion with Vargas tours. It turned out to be a spectacular experience, and the quality of service that we received FAR OUTWEIGHED our experiences with the hotel tours. In a nutshell: Vargas tours will... More

My daughter and I took three tours with Papagayo (Nicaragua, Arenal, and Palo Verde). All three tours were excellent. We appreciated the time that Josta took to help us select the right tours for us as well as meeting with us in person when we arrived in Costa Rica. The drivers as well as the tour guides were polite and... More

Our group of 4 had a fantastic time with Vargas tours last weekend. We had very limited time and wanted to see as much as possible. After a lot of emails back and forth, discussing a number of different options in the area, we settled on a private tour. Our tour guide picked us up directly from the airport and... More

I took this tour with Papagayo. LOVED THEM! I had David as the tour operator. He was amazing, knowledgabe, funny and kept the day filled with activities. This is a great tour because you cover a lot of ground. Cigar stop, Church, Market Bazaar, City Tour, Lunch, River Boat Ride and Volanco stop and see. All stops are great and... More

We e-mailed Vargas Tours before we left for Costa Rica and received a prompt reply. Our tour guide (Mau) and driver (JC) met our group of 8 (4 being teenagers) at the gates of our hotel at the designated time and drove us to the river where our Palo Verde tour began. Both of our guides were knowledgeable and professional... More
