I had read about Avispas and Amy on Tripadvisor and sure glad I did. My husband and I traveled to Costar Rica June 25- 30th. We made arrangements before we left and Carlos was waiting at the airport when we arrived. The next day we did the Eco adventure with Chepe. We were the only guests for the early morning... More

First,we took the horseback ride to zipline, to water slide, to mud bath and hot springs followed by lunch. Had an amazing time! Our next trip was Whitewater rafting on the Tenorio river. It was a...

From the eco adventure to white water rafting, to rappelling. All of it was first class. I could not imagine a more enjoyable safe and fun trip. Do... More

On our recent trip to Costa Rica, I was very uncertain how to go about planning our adventures. I researched almost every tour/excursion on Trip Advisor. I wanted make sure the trip was perfect and our family (2 daughters - ages 13 and 11 and my husband, too!) had an amazing time. Finally, a week before the trip, I thought... More

Avispa Adventures is the best tour company I have ever used... anywhere. Starting long before our trip, Amy had numerous phone conversations with my wife the planner in the family. Amy was a great help in getting things booked for our trip even though some of our excursions weren't through her tour company. She really put our mind at ease... More

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
