We contracted Odyssey to transfer us from Port Caladera to Santo Domingo, also for a tour to Lapaz Waterfall Gardens. We enjoyed a great day with guide Juan and driver Roarner "Mr.R". Since we don't speak Spanish we especially enjoyed their fluent English. Lapaz nature park and wildlife refuge was great, well worth the $35? admission. We stopped for a... More

Departed cruise ship with little in mind, however as we arrived on Sunday nothing much was open or operating. After a stroll around Puntarenas town, we came across Al of Odyssey tours who readily agreed to give us a short tour for an excellent price. Experience tells us not to book this type of excursion through the ships tour desk.... More

Our family of 4 visited Costa Rica this past July. We opted for private transportation with Odyssey Tours, and were to be transported in roomy new Mercedes van. Alvaro provided great communication prior to the trip, and didn't even ask for a deposit. He promised to drive us on very leg personally (we asked for him specifically), and we arranged... More

We booked with Odyssey for two separate day tours. The first day was white water rafting, volcano,and hot springs. The driver and guide were wonderful they went out of their show us the local wildlife and the indigenous culture. The second day was zip lines and hanging bridges. Their hospitality is beyond reproach. I highly recommend using Odyssey Day Tours.

We had a group of 10 reserved for a tour with Odyssey from Puerto Cardera. We were among the first off the ship to meet our reserved tour with Odyssey tours. Let me get the negative out of the way first – stepping off the ship the smell was horrible. Once you were 100 feet from the dock, it was... More

This is our second time in Costa Rica with Odyssey Tours. Good friendly service, good English, fair prices - they aim to please and take care of your needs. Being with Diego and his dad was like coming home. Will use them again.

A group of seven of us traveled to Costa Rica in October 2014 for nine days. Alvaro picked us up in their newest Mercedes Sprinter van (nothing like traveling in style!) He was our main source of transportation as we traveled from San Jose to La Fortuna then to Manuel Antonio and back to San Jose. Each time he picked... More

We (three ladies) pre-booked our adventure with Odyssey before leaving home (Vancouver Island). Odyssey was waiting the day our ship arrived in Puentarenas. We were guided to a clean and roomy van. Al, our guide for the day spoke fluent English. On the drive to our Zip destination, Al was a wealth on information about Costa Rica. The zip lining... More

First of all,Costa Rica is amazing. Visited in Oct and we we were a total of 7. We moved quite a bit and traveling to and from different locations was easy and worry free along with our requested extra stops was not a problem. Alvaro also had plenty of great suggestions and tips for our daily activities. I could go... More

We recently took the 6 in 1 day tour from Odyssey Tours in Puntarenas. Alvaro and Exon met our Princess Cruise ship promptly at the time they indicated. The van was clean and an extra benefit was the internet service they offered on the van. The restaurant Odyssey took us to for lunch was excellent and offered good Costa Rican... More
