We booked this trip right off the beach of the Hilton Papagayo. We were nervous at first, but when a few of the other hotel guests told us about their experiences with Jose, we knew it was the right choice for us, and WAY cheaper than the hotel's tour company. We booked a 3 hour snorkeling boat tour on the... More

First of all, I know it sounds leery to book excursions on the beach and not through the reps in the lobby. I travel alot and have always booked through my tour operator. Costa Rica was a bit different for me, understanding that their beaches are public and that these businesses exists is important. These are legitimate companies and they... More

Papagayo Tours advertises their tours as Unforgettable. I agree, but not for reasons they say. We found Papagayo Tours, run by Erick Escobar & Tavo to be irresponsible and a dangerous operation. One of their places of operation is on the beach near the Rui Guanacaste resort. We have since learned that they are not associated with the hotel. A... More

Had a great day. Rented a big catamaran saw whales, dolphins, turtles, snorkelled and saw barracuda. Erick and Tavo were great. I found them at www.goodtourscr.com and on the beach at Riu Palace Guanacaste.

I found Issy Tours on Trip Advisor, and I am so glad we did. I emailed the company initially and got an immediate response from Christian. The prices were great and they were willing to negotiate prices. We had them pick us up and return us to the airport . Upon our arrival they were waiting with a cooler full... More

Mixed review 1. The zip lines they took me to were great, my and the wife had a great time. I highly recommend this tour 2. The snorkel tour I book thru them was less than desirable. It was a private tour, but the boat was like an old fishing boat and they didn’t even have a ladder to get... More
