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.

Our family has been working with Mainor Lara and his company Tours Your Way for the last seven years. We typically go down to CR twice a year, typically beginning in Guanacaste but then exploring the country with Mainor. Not only is he super attentive to every need, he communicates efficiently and promptly-- this makes him an easy choice for... More

We chose Tours Your Way because of its flexibility. The price is worth the extra space you are provided to lengthen or extend a trip to meet your needs. We went on the Palo Verde boat trip with a young (5.5 year old) child and not having to adhere to the needs of a large group really worked for us.... More

We started the day heading out for Palo Verde--excellent guide, saw wild life along the way...stopped off to watch sugar cane harvesting. Boat tour was fun, again saw lots... More

We highly recommend Mainor of Tours Your Way. He genuinely cares about informing travelers about his country--he wants you to learn all that you can. That motive exceeds the natural financial benefits for him. So if you like to learn as well as have great touring experiences, this is the guide you should go with. He is excellent about returning...

We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. Our most memorable days were spent with Tours Your Way! We enjoyed an up close visit with White Face monkeys in Palo Verde Park, zip lining and a wonderful drive from Guanacaste to Arenal with this team. From Mainor, to Ray and Ariel, every person on the team is professional,... More

We stayed at the Hotel Riu Guanacaste and heard from a friend great things about Mainor and Tours Your Way. We never met Mainor, but spent a day with Ray (the #1 Guide!) who took us on the full-day Mega Combo excursion. Ray was a terrific guide – very knowledgeable of the region and extremely willing to accommodate our requests... More

Mainor was our guide on our trip to Nicaragua. We had a small group if three people. Our tour was a little more expensive because we were such a small group. Everything about this tour was awesome. We saw beautiful sights and Mainor provided an experience of a lifetime. I highly recommend this tour company for all your excursions. It... More

We booked Tours your way for our to and from transport to the airport. We also did a snorkeling trip and after Mainor met our son (he has special needs) he suggested we change up our zip lining tour to make sure it would be fun for him as well as the rest of us. Mainor was so personal for... More
