Bernal was the best. We decided on the ATV tour, had a great time...loved it! Costa Rican's in general are so friendly, but Bernal went above and beyond. It was beyond a fantastic experience.

We did horseback riding and ATV tours - it was an awesome time!! We visited some of the most beautiful and deserted beaches I have ever seen. Wish we could have just stayed there - they were perfect!! Marco was a wonderful host and we had an excellent lunch after our tours. It was a great day
