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

My husband and I went on 2 trips with Jeffry....one to Isla Cabuya to visit the cemetery island and do some snorkelling in the tidal pools and then a couple of days later to hike in Cabo Blanco national park. 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...

We are a small growing company and try to respond to all communications quickly but sometimes when I'm busy with tours, it's difficult for me to do so. 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...

My family of four spent two days touring with Jeffry. We snorkled and tried traditional fishing at the cemetery island and spent a day doing the long Cabo Blanco hike followed by more snorkeling in low tide pools. The whole experience was like something you would see in National Geographic. Jeffry was a wonderful host/guide and my 10 year old... More

Due to the previous reviews we sought out Jefri for a tour to Cabuya island with the snorkeling and lobster lunch, etc. We arrived and everything was going as planned but he didn't have enough snorkle fins that would fit us. He put the gear in the back of our vehicle and asked us to drive down to the fishing... More

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the tour and felt that the price is too much. I have raised the price from $35 to $40, as that is a price from three years ago (yes I need to update my site) and so I've raised the price to try to keep up with the huge increase in... More

If your traveling to Costa Rica and are planning to go on guided tours this is a must do. Jeffery is a one man show who does it all and he's very good at it. He took us on a hike to the beach then we went snorkeling just off a reef. Jeffery took my 20 year old son under... More
