We used Avispas Adventures to make arrangements for 2 tours and for our airport transfers. The cost of the transfers was less than other companies we contacted, and the service was excellent. Amy was very helpful prior to our visit with arranging the Eco Adventure and White Water Rafting 3s and 4s for us, and our guide Chepe was right... More

We took three tours: the Palo Verde cruise; a rainforest walk (a secondary rainforest on a private farm in Bijaguas) and visit to Las Pumas; and the Rincon de la Vieja hike. All three were private tours (although originally there was another couple booked for the boat tour - they were no-shows). We were a family of four, with a... More

This tour was over the top! My wife is handicapped so we always travel with a manual wheelchair and have to pick our tours, carefully because of our limitations. Avispas made our day a dream. Our tour guide and the captain of the river boat helped transfer my wife to and from the boat, down a ramp and through the... More

Amy was so helpful in helping me with my transportation during our travels at Costa Rica. I had several needs and Amy fulfilled all of them! Carlos our driver for the week was a doll. He took us wherever we asked. Such a nice guy! Having Amy take care of our transportation took a lot of potential stress from our... More

Thank you to Amy & Chepe for the BEST time in Costa Rica. My group experienced such a memorable trip, it is hard to say what was the best. Of course, for me personally it was the Palo Verde Riverboat Cruise and Meeting the White Faced Monkey's. Zip lining upside down was another great adventure. I took over 514 Pictures... More

Thank you to Amy & Chepe for a memorable and fun tour to Palo Verde National Park. Amy went above & beyond to create a wonderful day for our group, including my wheelchair-bound sister. It is rare a company will work so hard (& make it appear effortless) to be certain those with a physical handicap are able to share... More
