Hayes and Jarvis..... Hayes and Jarvis..... hmmm, The name is familiar, not sure why. I think there was a post about these guys not too long ago, but we do not hear much about them in the forum. Try doing a forum search and see what comes up. Maybe someone will chime in. Good luck.

and here is that post, happened sooner than I thought - tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1483712-i17998-k5…

Not much to go on, do a trip report when you get back let the forum know how it all went.

Hayes & Jarvis are a high end British Tour operator very well extablished in tropical luxury getaways, I used them a couple of times many years ago but not to Costa Rica. Like most UK tour operators they will use the services of a well extablished Costa Rican travel agent/wholesaler or sub contract some of the services. First time I came to CR was with Kuoni Travel UK and they subcontracted everything besides the flights to to a local travel agent, had a couple of issues but Kuoni was fast to get agent to fix things.

You will be in good hands with Hays & Jarvis

just returned from tour with Hayes & Jarvis - yes they do contract out all parts of the tour - we were met by a guide from Hotelbeds who stayed with us for the entire tour, taking us to our hotel at the end. the guide was excellent (Jeff) hope you have as good a time as we did

We had a fantastic time, interesting tour with a mix of hotels and our superb guide Jeff. We travelled via Newark which was a simple transfer both ways.

Hotelbeds made all arrangements, very efficient. Only down side was room reserved at Playa Flamingo which was almost underground with a view of the car park, however we paid an upgrade for a room with a balcony. Worth the extra. Would recommend this holiday to anyone as there were activity options to suit all abilities. Wonderful memories!
