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...

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
