5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We took our teenagers to Costa Rica and accidentally met a tour guide names Javier Morales who was able to efficiently and economically make sure we saw all of the attractions we wanted too including Howler Monkeys and participating in a local pick up soccer game in the town square

“If You Want A Guide Who Knows Everything...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Be sure to see Javier at Costa Rica EZ Travel Adventures. He loves his country, and makes sure you love it too! He knows all the secret spots, and will tell you about every tree, flower, animal, insect, and fruit along the way.

“The BEST DAY OF OUR VACATION!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

"The best day of our vacation!!" We are so glad we chose lovingcostarica.com as our tour operator instead of the other more commercialized tour operations our hotel suggested! Last time we visited Costa Rica, we were in Manuel Antonio and had the concierge at our hotel book us a tour of the local area. We were instantly disappointed because there were several other people also booked on the same tour, which ended up being totally chaotic, unorganized, impersonal, crowded, on a cramped bus was w/no AC! And even though the tour was moderately priced in comparison to other tours, we did NOT feel we got our money's worth! So, on our last, most recent vacation to CR we were adamant on having a better 'tour' experience. After seeing all the amazing reviews on trip-advisor for lovingcostarica.com, we decided to book a full day tour for my family of nine. From the beginning, Mr. Javier Francisco Vargas Morales (our tour guide and owner of this little gem of a business) was VERY professional, arriving at our hotel to pick us up promptly at 6am. He was courteous, polite, accommodating and very patient with our 6 children (one with special needs) all under 14yrs. Javier's 13 person Van was new, spotlessly clean, comfortable w/AC, tinted windows and stocked with a small cooler of cold water bottles. He spoke perfect English, I mean PERFECT and was so knowledgable about the local area, plants, insects, flora, fauna, animals, everything! Oh, and really funny too! He seemed to have an "in" everywhere we went and treated us like family. It did NOT feel like a 'tour' at all but rather a 'family sight seeing trip' because most everywhere we went, we were the only people around. When we went zip-lining there were other tours & tour guides too, but with Javier, we barely had to ever wait in line! We stopped for lunch at some little secret spot that served us an amazingly delicious and filling authentic Tico-style Tipico lunch complete with fresh juices and local beers. I can't say enough about the fantastic day we spent with Javier at lovingcostarica.com, I could go on and on and on.... We not only had the BEST day hands down of our vacation, but we also made a friend FOR LIFE in Javier. For the first time in my life I felt compelled to leave a 100% tip for Javier in appreciation of gratitude! We didn't arrive back to the hotel until 8pm and even though we were tired, we were happy! I would highly recommend booking with lovingcostarica.com before anyone else, and make sure you book in advance. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

“Want the Best in Guanacaste?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We used Javier's tour company for 4 different tours during our recent stay in Costa Rica. We had a great time on each and certainly enjoyed his expertise about Guanacaste, wildlife, places to see and his ability to be in the right place at the right time to see the most. Each tour included a variety of events / activities to keep the day interesting as well as informative.
Javier was very knowledgeable, professional and a true ambassador for Costa Rica. While driving he was able to spot wildlife, birds, and trees and often stopped to demonstrate. eg. cashew trees and how they grew, how teak oil was made. Tours were educational but more importantly FUN!
Highly recommend all the tours he offers.

“Ziplines, Rafting & Mud Baths!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Javier was recommended to us by some friends who had previously traveled to Costa Rica -- he was easy to communicate with via email and we set up our trip about a month and a half in advance (we were there in April). We weren't 100% sure of what sort of day we wanted to plan, and Javier was great at hearing our feedback and planning everything out for us!
When we got to CR and were settled, Javier confirmed our hotel info and phone number and then picked us up promptly at 7am to head out to our day-long adventure. On the ride, we were given the opportunity to see monkeys, learn about the Guanacaste landscape and culture and even stop for some Costa Rican coffee! When we got to the adventure park, Javier had amazing energy that really pumped us up for the day and got us excited for what was coming. The zip lines were incredible, the rafting super fun and refreshing and the mud baths were SUCH a relaxing way to end off the activities. We also really enjoyed the traditional buffet lunch with a beautiful view of the volcanic landscape!
Javier also offered to take videos and pictures for us throughout the entire day which really allowed us to enjoy ourselves and come home with amazing memories of the trip. In addition, Javier gave us some really great advice on what we could do with the rest of our time in CR, what the best souvenirs to bring home were and was accommodating in helping us to get the necessities we needed for the rest of our trip.
Had we had more time, we definitely would have booked several other day trips with Javier and we definitely plan to use him again when traveling to Central America. He was well-educated and able to answer any crazy questions we had and brought a genuine desire to make our trip memorable! I also have to say that we found this day-long trip to be INCREDIBLY worth the price -- several other tour guides were charging far more than Loving Costa Rica and did not offer nearly as many activities for their high prices.
I would recommend using Javier for any type of adventure you are looking for -- if you aren't sure of what you want, just ask for his advice and he will plan a fun and exciting time for you (couples, friends, family, anyone!).
Can't wait to go back to have Javier plan more fun for us!
