My husband & I spent the day with Jeffrey in Cabuyo. He found out my husband was interested in snorkeling and spearfishing and recommended a tour. He treated us to some fresh fruit and fish, and we had a one fresh oysters from our snorkeling. He paid attention to our safety, but also made it an adventure. Highly recommended! He's... More

Jeffery is the man! He showed me a side of Costa Rica far beyond what any other tour could provide. He and his family and friends made my girlfriend and I feel extremely welcome during outings of surfing and spearfishing ending in fresh ceviché and oysters. What made this experience so unique was the wealth of wisdom and knowledge that... More

Jeffrey was amazing. If you're in the area and don't take a tour with him, you've really missed out.

Solo Bueno is a must if you want to learn about Costa Rica. Jeffry is both passionate and knowledgeable about the local area and I cannot think of a better guide. The Cabuya Island tour is wonderful and would be fun for everyone. There is no way of going wrong by picking Solo Bueno.

My mom and I spent the afternoon with Jeffrey and it was a hi-light of our trip. We walked over to the island, had some coconuts, and snorkeled while gathering some oysters and conch. He is a wealth of knowledge on the area. Jeffrey always made sure we felt comfortable and when my mom decided not to snorkel with us,... More

My partner and I went on a wonderful snorkeling tour with Jeffrey around the island. It was absolutely breathtaking. I had never snorkeled before, and Jeffrey took the time to teach me breathing techniques. We explored the rocks and tidal pools, and the water was so incredibly clear. Jeffrey then made us ceviche on the beach during sunset. Overall, an... More

The snorkelling trip included an exploration of tidal pools, crevice that Jeffry made up on the rocks from shellfish he... More

Our experience was not very good. I emailed them twice before coming, heard nothing. Contacted them in Cabuya and attempted to plan a kayak trip. They never confirmed and we had great difficulty in reaching them by phone or email. When we finally contacted them on the day of our supposed trip, it hadn't been arranged and the response from...

What we offer that the bigger companies can't are more personalized and fun tours. Pura vida and glad... More

I found Solo Bueno Tours on tripadvisor and based on reviews and the kind of non touristy 'tour' we wanted, we met up with Jeffry on our vacation this year to arrange a snorkel trip to Cabuya. Jeffry was really easygoing and knowledgeable about Cabuya and surrounding area. His passion for his town is obvious and his narrative on the... More

We had the pleasure of hiring Jeffry for a private spearfishing and snorkeling trip on Isla Cabuya on our recent trip to Costa Rica. Jeffry was very patient in teaching my 12 year old how to spearfish and was very knowledgable about the area and where to find the fish. I would highly recommend Jeffry and Solo Bueno Tours for...
