This was one of many times I've visited Costa Rica, but nonetheless the most memorable.

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

We booked independently with Arenas rather than using one of the Cunard tours. Valerie (Sales Manager) and Jairo Gonzalez were waiting for us on the quay and took the four of us to a very luxurious MPV. We dropped Valerie off at the office and Jairo our guide, who spoke excellent English, drove us to a number of visitor highlights.... More

We paid for a private tour with a personal guide to pick his brains during our day trip in the area since we had read and heard fascinating things about Costa Rica.

The only positive thing about the Doubletree Hilton is that they introduce us to Arenas Travel. The staff really cared about us as guests, shared their love for their country and gave us an amazing tour. I liked them so much, I booked a second tour just to not be at the Hilton for another day.

We booked a tour with Valerie of Arenas Travel for our day in Costa Rica while on a cruise ship. We had 8 in our vehicle and Enoc was our guide. Enoc was wonderful and the trip was very well organized. Unfortunately our ship was not scheduled to arrive until 12, so we had arranged a 12:30 tour. In hindsight,... More
