We used Arenas as transport to and from the hotel. They were on time for both segments, the drivers were friendly, and we were able to pay in American dollars. Arenas also gave us a better deal than some of the other companies.

We stayed at the doubletree. We walked over to the office and spoke to Valerie who was great and helped us pick the tours we wanted to do (we wanted to do a lot, so we had to narrow it down!). She helped us pick, gave us a discount for booking three tours at once, and made sure we knew... More

This was our first visit to Costa Rica, and the tours made the trip! Every person we encountered was wonderful, kind and informative. We ended up with Ronald for three different trips and he was great! Also loved Jovanna (spelling?). She was wonderful on our monkey/zip line tour. We stayed at the Doubletree and just walked across the street to... More

Suggest you go in the morning when it is quite and not too many people are around. The drive from punts area as is bunny and. Bit scary but worth it when you arrive.

We had an 8 hour tour with Arenas Travel DayTours when we got off the cruise ship in Costa Rica. The tour was prearranged by email with Arenas in a very efficient manner. Our guide, Geovanna met us off the pier as promised and proved to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly throughout the tour. She took us to the coffee... More

Everyone at Arenas travel was amazing! Very time-conscious, on-time, clean, informative, nice, friendly, awesome! We had ten people in our group from 9 to 72 years old. We enjoyed Tortuga Island, visiting the monkeys, zip-lining, crocodile tour, lunches on the tours, and transportation to and from the airport. I would absolutely recommend everyone use Arenas Travel!

This was one of many times I've visited Costa Rica, but nonetheless the most memorable. Booking with Arenas travel was by far the best decision, from our trip to Tortuga Island as well as the one to hornillas; there is nothing but wonderful things to say about them and their staff. Both Ronald Molina and Jairo Gonzalez are wonderful tour... More

Valerie spoke wonderful English which is very helpful in avoiding confusion. Arenas Travel's prices were a lot more reasonable than what ADOLFO from HOTELEXTRAS at the Doubletree in Puntarenas provided and Adolfo's customer service was horrible which made Arenas Travel a welcome experience. I would recommend them highly. Airport transport for example is 25 less than HOTELEXTRAS as well as... More
