Our guide spoke great English and took us to visit everything they listed in their 6 in 1 tour. Lunch was up on a mountain top overlooking the beautiful... More

My friend and I took the "Real Volcanic Experience" and Tortuga Island tours. Both picked up at our hotel (DoubleTree Puntarenas). All the guides were good. I don't remember the guide's name from the volcano tour but she knew a lot of history and was a lot of fun. Volcano: this was the longer tour, plan for a full day.... More

The tour guides are well versed on the history of Costa Rica and are very proud of their country. We did a super fun tour that included horseback riding, swimming at a waterfall, visiting volcanic active craters, taking a mud bath and soaking in a hot spring heated by the volcano. I've never been so tired after being out all... More

We recently stayed at the Doubletree hotel in Puntarenas and found both Hotel Beds and Arenas Travel at the hotel. Since we paid what I considered to be a high price for two pickups to go from the airport in San Jose, at $115.00 each(one way) and each pickup was about an hour and half apart that I could get...

We really enjoyed our tours! We experienced the 6 in 1 tour and the ATV/canopy tour. Great tour guides (Charlie, Geovana, and Carlos).

Stopped in Puntarenas on Panama Canal cruise - NCL Jewel. Arranged this tour less than a week before and they were able to accommodate our group of 5 as a private tour. (Make sure you respond to Valerie's emails - both of them to confirm) Jairo was our guide and we can't say enough good things about him. Answered our... More

We toured with Charlie and did the 7 in 1 tour - seeing seven sites along the way in one day. The boat ride was the highlight seeing the wild crocodiles, the driver of the boat fed them and they were swimming around us in the boat. Kept my hands in the boat!! We visited a site with the wild... More

Ronald Molina took us to enjoy zip lining and feeding the monkeys, and he added lots of other experiences and information. It was a great day and we can't say enough about the tour and our excellent guide.

We took the 7 in 1 tour on a port call from the NCL Jewel. We were met on the pier as advertised and shared a van with three other couples. We took a short tour of the town and headed out to see the monkeys. Very enjoyable stop and if you want a monkey sitting on your head, it... More

Booked the 7-1 with Geovanna and I can't say enough positive stuff about this day trip. She is super cool and took the time to get to know each person on the bus and interacted with us throughout the day. I didn't read many interesting things about punta renas before the trip so I was expecting a bore, boy was... More
