From the first connection we made with Ed, he made it his mission to see that our trip to Costa Rica was exactly what we wanted. We flew in to San Jose and spent 4 nights at the Arenal Volcano area. When we checked into our hotel, Ed was not pleased with our rooms. He had requested a top floor room, and we were given a ground floor room. (The top floors rooms have better views of the volcano.) After a trip to the front desk, Ed had us in a top floor room. It was an awesome view! And, a great hotel! We stayed at the Kioro Hotel, at Ed's suggestion. Everyone there was awesome!
Over the 3 days we were in that area, Ed had arranged a zip line canopy tour, hanging bridges canopy tour, and ATV tour. They were all fun! And, Ed was an encyclopedia of knowledge about all the animals and plants. He made our tours interesting and a learning experience. When we weren't on tours, we hung out at the hotel. Ed taught us Costa Rican 8 ball pool, we had ping pong tournaments, and swimming races in the pool.
Our final day together was when he brought us to Guancaste for the final leg of our stay in Costa Rica. Before he left us at our hotel, he made certain that our rooms were to our expectations. And, even though his commitment to us was complete, he called periodically to make sure that everything was okay.
I wholeheartedly recommend Ed at Emmanuel Tours www.emmanueltourscr.com to anyone planning a trip to Costa Rica.
