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.

Not being much for large group tours, we knew we wanted something more specialized to meet our needs. The reviews here pointed us in the right direction. Mainor responded to our phone call and email request promptly and without any difficulty, we booked the full day "Super Mega Combo" tour. Rey picked us up at our condo and away we... More

I asked a local on a TA forum who they recommended for a tour and was led to Mainor. When I checked his website He described exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a guide who would take the time to point out things in nature and not just rush us through a tour. All of our contact was... More

Just finished up last tour of two with Ray. First was Miravalles and today was Palo Verde. Just amazing landscape and tour guides were phenomenal!!! The name says it all. Both were private tours, which we loved. Nothing against groups, but my girlfriend and I like to be spoiled and we were. We had our own SUV with a driver... More

My wife and I were recently married and planning our honeymoon in Guanacaste,Costa Rica. My wife found Tours Your Way online and we loved the reviews. We emailed Mainor with questions about tours and transportation to and from the airport. He was very responsive and informative about all our inquiries. We decided to book with him for the Miravalles Volcano... More

After contacting a number of tour guides / businesses, my boyfriend and I decided to go with Tours Your Way. We did the Arenal and Palo Verde tours, and managed to plan everything via email with Mainor. Mainor was very responsive via email, and made planning the tours very easy. We also booked airport transportation with him. However, due to... More

Did the "Mega-Combo" tour today with Ray as our guide and Carlos at the wheel. We got: 1. Courteous treatment. 2. Humor. 3. Patience. 4. Simple, effective instruction on ALL our activities. 5. Door-to-door service from our hotel lobby to the tour sites. 6. Short-cuts bypassing large tour groups. 7. 6-pack of beer, available water, and Band-Aids. Came in handy.... More

Let me start off by saying that Tours Your Way is the only way I would like to take a tour if it was at all possible! The operations are family run by a local Costa Rican family that takes great pride in providing the best experience possible, and they are able to do this because your tour is solely... More

I sound like a broken record! This was our fourth trip to Costa Rica, and we once again used Tours Your Way to provide transportation to and from the airport to our hotel. Large, comfortable vans, exactly where they said they would be at the exact time they said they would be there. Communication was easy via email. Would not... More
