Owner description: My name is Mainor Lara Bustos. I am a native Costa Rican, who was born and raised in the north pacific province of Guanacaste. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Liberia is located in this province and is a popular travel destination for many North American & European tourists visiting Costa Rica.Fortunate for me, I grew up in one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. With nature right at my doorstep, it was easy for me to become intimately familiar with all of Costa Rica natural beauty.

Use this company for your tours. Mainor came highly recommended and we really enjoyed being with him. So thoughtful, helpful and informative. Very easy to communicate with and truly wants to do things the way you want them and for you to be pleased. It only worked for us to use him for one tour but we are so glad... More

Starting with his timely, informative emails before our trip to waiting for us at the airport, to taking us to local restaurants, to experiencing the best most exciting tours...Mainor was the best tour guide we could have asked...

He personally met with us at our villa and accomodated all that we were interested in doing and seeing.

Ray and Mainor provided us with a top notch tour of the Guanacaste Region. We experienced things that were very traditional and local to this region and saw things that most would not. We actually used them for both a riverboat tour in the Palo Verde National Park and a hiking/volcano tour at Rincon de Viejo Nat'l Park (?) -... More

Simply the best experience we could have had. Excellent host - knowledgable but not assertive, experienced but not intrusive, thoughtful and understanding. No pressure at all, just a desire to make certain that our time together would be a lasting, lifetime memory. We made new friends (especially Mainor) and will without a doubt visit again and bring our little ones... More

I met Mainor Lara on the beach on our last day in Costa Rica. I was very hung over and the only reason we went to the beach is to snorkel unfortunately I was very sick and did not go. I was laying on the beach and Mainor came up and started talking to me, I let him know that... More

We desired to travel as a Native and avoid the tourist areas so to experience the country like a resident of the Country. Mainor was an exceptional guide and took a random list of activities that we wanted to experience and crafted an adventure of a lifetime. We traveled all over the country to see the Pacific Ocean, Caribbean Ocean,... More

Booked two tours. Both superior in every way. Rey was our guide and Alan was the driver. Rey's knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area was immense. The Palo Verde tour included lunch in a traditional Costa Rican restaurant and my husband, sister, and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. Rey even went to the trouble of cutting... More

We booked both the Monteverde and Rincon De La Vieja tours and had the best time ever. Mainor and Ray truly live up to their motto "Tours Your Way." Every part of the day was catered specifically to our requests and they worked tirelessly to make sure that they exceeded every request we could think of. It was like having... More

My husband and I were in Costa Rica for a week and we took 3 tours with Mainor and Ray. And every minute was spectacular. We went snorkeling, did the Guachipelin Adventure Tour, and hiked Rincon del Viejo. We were shocked to find a sailboat waiting just for us for snorkeling. The trip was amazing. We snorkeled in 2 different... More
