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.

We went with Mainor on the Mega Combo Tour. It is a trip to one of the places that offers horseback riding, mud baths, waterfalls & zip lines. We probably could have driven there by ourselves. However, the ride is brutal, Mainor also knows everyone at the place and will ensure you get there at the right time to avoid... More

Highly recommended by Angela (guest} at the Hilton Papaygayo Resort. Our tour was set up by Mainor. Ray and Melissa picked us up at the Resort and provided us with a beautiful day of sight seeing, traditional Costa Rican food etc. Very informative, bi-lingual and professional. Never once did we feel rushed. Ray and Melissa were very flexible allowing us... More

Mainor is a very professional, caring and well respected in the industry. Although he might not be doing the tour himself, he will redirect it to someone equally competent. If you go to Costa Rica, he is your best bet. He is puntual, cordial and wants to make sure you will leave with a good taste in your mouth. Pura... More

I came to Costa Rica with 41 people. Mainor communicated with me in the weeks prior to our visit so that we could have everything set up before we arrived ... tours, dates and cost. All three tours were received well by all participants. We have 18 people for the customized Volcano/Rainforest tour, 12 for the Mega combo and 37... More

Mainor with Tours Your Way took us on two great tours over two days - one to Miravalles Volcano and one to Palo Verdes National Park - and both were great! Mainor and his nephew Rey were super knowledgeable and helpful with everything we needed. The volcano tour was zip lining, horseback riding to two waterfalls and a super cool... More

Years ago, I was a tour director and travelled the world with small to large groups. When my boyfriend read Mainor's info to me, I said "book with him asap! This is exactly who we want!" We were not disappointed. He and his nephew Rey did a great job and we saw, we learned, we laughed and we still miss... More

Mainor is very knowledgeable and made our journey with our young grandchildren effortless. He is very flexible, fun to be with, speaks fluent English, and helped us plan our trip including what to see, where... More

Our tours with Mainor and his other tour guides Marlo and Rey, were 2 of the best days we have had. They work hard to enable you to see what you are interested in, and have fun the whole time. They are engaging and trustworthy, and know how to show the areas and reflect the pride they feel about their... More
