We just did the Palo Verda river cruise through AlexontheBeach. We had Pablo pick up my family of five from the Riu Guanacasta, on time at 7:30 and he took us straight to boat. The early ones are best as the animals aren't spooked yet. We immediately saw howler-monkeys, birds etc at low tide. The large croc came right up... More

This was my first time in Costa Rica. We were a group of 6 and it was also everyone's first time. We were celebrating my boyfriends big birthday. We had originally booked our adventure for Wednesday, however, one of the people in our party came down very sick and spent 2 days in bed. Marvin was more than accommodating and... More

This was my first time in Costa Rica. We were a group of 12 and everyone's first time as well. We found Joe by the Riu Guanacaste Resort at the beginning of our trip. He was very honest and told us exactly what we were going to get out of the tours, plus more. We did the Llanos de Cortez... More

This was my second trip to Costa Rica and let me say first off Sergio and Marvin from Alexonthebeach.com Set this trip over the top! Guanacaste is a region of Costa Rica that leaves much to be explored and imagined. This place is magical in many ways. Sunsets are rare due to many villages facing north. That is not the... More

We were picked up by Alex and Jose at our hotel at 6AM. The tour lasted all day including stops at some amazing waterfalls, a nature reserve, lunch in Fortuna then onto the volcano Arenal, we...

This is our second and third excursions with Alex, one in 2011 and two in 2013. Alex not only designs your tour around your interests, but personalizes the experience by adding the culture of his native Costa Rica. Our Half Day became almost a full day so we could enjoy all the events we planned for the day. Our full... More

We were recently in Guanacaste, Costa Rica and our party of 8 (4 adults, 2 teens and 2 preteens) took two excursions with Alex of Alex on the Beach. Alex was an excellent guide – he is bilingual, very knowledgeable about Costa Rica, its history, culture and customs as well as being quite amiable. Our first excursion took us into... More

My husband and I and another couple went on an excursion while in Costa Rica with this company and it was the BEST it could have been. We were picked up at our resort in an air conditioned, comfortable van and driven to the site (about an hour drive). Once there, we were driven to each different activity with just... More
