Captainn David Ried at Calyspo Island Cruise and his crew are the best...around Nicoya Gulf...no body even close to be as good as they are,,, David is a expat...but more costarican than anything else...we need more expats like he and his family!

I never had a chance to actually go on their tour (due to weather on the ocean - not fault of theres) but my tour did include a connection transfer from Manuel Antonio to San Jose and there was no help offered there.

If your tour includes a connection I would ask about a "plan B'. Otherwise they do have rave reviews - reason I booked them. I had done a connection before that was excellent so didn't even think of "what if" when you figured a company with rave reviews would deliver. Have to admit if I read a review such as mine I would of questioned them on "what if".... which I will in the future.

I was in Manuel Antonio to be dropped off in San Jose at the lovely Adventure Inn (still love those people) although my drop off was to be down the street at the Country Inn as the bus apparently does not "fit" . ??

which really makes sense> Not sure if you are doing a day trip or transfer. Sounds like a great and good service provided by them if you do use them. My beef with this company was they did not inform me they cancelled and did not help with my transfer from MA to SJ which I paid for. To top it all off ...the refund was wrong.. so that just added fuel to the fire. The taxi from MA was more than double the $$$ a shuttle would cost. (they didn't even offer to help find one )

If your doing a day trip ... you really have noting to loose but of course your valuable vacation time. I went back to read their reviews since mine... seems transportation is there only fault on occasion,
