Has anyone ever used TravelCostaRicaNow.com for travel?

I have been watching the You Tube videos of TravelCostaRicaNow.com and feel like their travel help videos are super informative. And they have opened up a travel arrangement office for tourists. I was just curious if anybody has ever worked with them for your trip? You should check out there website...GOOD INFO!!

They have actually been around for a while (5 years+) and have toured and video documented Costa Rica extensively. I know them personally and they have referred guests to our hotel. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Thats good to hear! They seem to be great guys! Maybe one day I will get to meet them and personally tell them thank you for all their insight into CR! And by the way roadadvisor, thou does a certification does a travel advisor not make, as much as good old fashion experience, So try not to be too harsh because you never now when you might pass up on a great connection when negatitivity rears its head. However, I will heed what you have said and appreciate it in the context it was said. Good luck to you and TravelCostaRicaNow,com!!! All the best!

Very well said Andrea. I am familiar with the videos these guys do and IMO they know Costa Rica quite well. Throw in Colinistos recommendation and I have no doubt they are legit and good folks. Have a blast on vaca.

I have always used them for all travel info on CR and they are spot on!!!! Always fast with a response to emails and never leaving questions unanswered... Do not hesitate to trust there info including Vamos 4x4 totally saves us money everytime we visit. We owe both of them several rounds of drinks the next time we meet them...

Yes these guys have been around for at least 7 years that I know of. I also know them personally now. Moved here to Costa Rica just a few months ago and they have been the kindest and most helpful people I have ever meet. Not only did they help me when my family came here to visit me with a free place to stay, but they have helped me with my Restaruant here in La Fortuna. These guys are honest reliable and very trust worthy. Thank you guys at Travelcostaricanow.com

I have watched all their helpful videos. They are posted for FREE.....Yes, they are trying to make some income from their little tourist business, but I really don't feel they are doing anything pushy or under-handed....They offer most of their advice and help for free. I am interested in seeing them and using their service when I go down there next year!!!!! Nice guys!
