Prior to visiting Costa Rica this summer, my husband did some online research on tour companies in the Papagayo area. He found Vargas Tours, we read the reviews, then we booked our tour. To celebrate our honeymoon, we chose the full day, private tour of the Miravalles Waterfall. We had an amazing, fun-filled day which included Ziplining (12 platforms!), a... More

This is our 2nd time using Vargas tours. We used them 8 years ago with a great experience, so we booked them again with this return visit to Costa Rica! We choose Vargas tours for the personal service. So worth the money to be one in one with a guide! It was just my husband and I with Ricardo. He... More

This 17 hour long tour consisted of 14hours on the bus or waiting for the buses And 3 hours of sightseeing off of the bus. We spent 25 minutes in Granada, 15 minutes at the volcano, 20 minutes in Santa Katerina... More

Our trip started with Ricardo who picked us up at the airpot, such a pleasant, funny gentleman. The day of our excursion Ricardo was back and we met a new crew member named Robert, Robert is...

We used Vargas tours for the Miravalles full-day mega tour. We absolutely loved the experience! I emailed Josta a couple of weeks before our trip, got a response right away and got forward to Lupita. It was a party of 4 of us, my two best friends, mother and I. We weren’t sure what we wanted, we just knew we... More

Contact Lupita. This is a reputable company who is worth every cent! Our trip began with Juan who picked us up on time from the airport and promptly took us to our hotel with a small tour of Papagayo. We had a tour to Palo Verde national park with Rob and Rodney. It was phenomenal! They gave such a thorough... More

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

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...
