Our group of four had two tours with Papagayo. We went to the Rainforest (with awesome Marvin) as our driver. Marvin was as attentive as any driver has ever been and went out of his way to make our drive comfortable. He answered all of our questions and volunteered a lot of information about Costa Rica. We also went to... More

Great guides, great tours, great service!! We used Plus for three separate tours during our trip to Costa Rica and all were wonderful. Both Costa Rica and Nicaragua are gorgeous and the guides for all three were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them.

Thanks to Harold our guide and Johnny our driver for a memorable trip to Nicaragua. Harold is a virtual encyclopedia of local info and lore. The trip wouldn't have been so awesome without him. I only wish it was longer than 14 hours. The bus was roomy, clean and comfortable. The lunch stop at Masaya Mkt was great and I... More

I went on the Nicaragua tour two days ago. I found Nicaragua so more intriguing than Costa Rica. The tour guide Harold made the trip so possible. He laid out the conduct on the bus and explained the trip along the way. I went to Miner at Playa Flamingo and said I wanted to go. With one days notice and... More

We took two separate tours. The Beauty of Guanacaste tour length was great. We were able to eat breakfast at the resort before leaving and have dinner when we returned. Lunch was provided. We each got different meal options to share but all preferred the fish. The hike down to the waterfall and the beginning of the rainforest trail were... More

We left Costa Rica at 7:30 and took us 2 hrs. to the Nicaraguan border. Everything went smoothly at the border but find ourselves laughing at how they do thorough checked right after... More

This will make for a very long day but well worth it. You drive through excellent scenery and visit great spots. The downside is that you don't get to spend a lot of time walking around Granada (which is awesome) but that is just the nature of such a long trip fit into one day. The upsides: tour guide Harold,... More

Marco was very nice and interested in teaching us. He struggled with his English and sometimes I wished he would say the word in Spanish if he got stuck so that I could maybe follow better. Often I could not hear him very well either. Not really his fault on the rain forest part...The food was pretty good, but could... More
