We did the Zip Line canopy tour and Tabaco Hot Spring one day tour. My wife was a bit skeptical about zip lining, but ended up thoroughly enjoying the experience. The guides were great and the experience exhilarating. The hot springs were also first class and the buffet dinner was excellent. It was a very long day (6 am to... More

It was a pleasure working with Valle Dorado. I worked with Illiam in putting together a 10 day vacation to Costa Rica over spring break. Illiam was extremely professional and very responsive to all my needs. She helped me put together a fun-filled, activity packed, itinerary that included 2 day stays in San Jose, Arenal, Monteverde, and Manuel Antonio and... More

Two friends and I had 4 days in Costa Rica with very specific ideas. The service from Valle Dorado was first class and excellent value. Everything was organised by email. Jorge at the office was great with suggestions. He was very patient with our questions and any changes we requested. There was no attempt to use the changes to bump... More

A special thanks to Marvin, our Driver/Guide/Interpreter/Birdspotter/Excursion Planner, who made our trip better than we could have ever expected. Having a driver is the way to go. We have driven in many countries but I know that driving in Costa Rica would make me crazy. It was just nice to hop in our van and head off to some new... More

Really excellent once we agreed what was required, excellent choices of locations, superb service (even when one of the hotels was closed, throwing out the guests - including us, immediately rehoused in a better hotel). A special thanks to Marvin (our guide/driver/bird spotter) who took us to great value good restaurants as well as occasional odd shopping needs and spotted... More

Valle Dorado is a family-owned, small travel company with outstanding service. I used them in September 2014 to book several days of excursions in three cities before and after a liveaboard dive trip to Cocos Island. In every case the recommendations and arrangements made by Valle Dorado were outstanding. It was so nice to be able to give my preferences... More

I used Valle Dorado travel agent services to set up hotel reservations, transfers, and tours on either end of a liveaboard SCUBA cruise with Undersea Hunter, who recommended them to me. It was an enormous asset to have a single Paypal invoice and not need to make separate reservations. The service was accurate, prompt, and personalized. They know all of... More
