“Fantastic day with Arenas Travel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We booked a day tour for our group of 4 with Arenas Travel when our cruise ship arrived in Puntarenas on March 29th. We were met by our guide on time and embarked on an awesome series of experiences; beginning with an up-close-and-personal feeding with monkeys climbing on us, a river cruise with a very close up feeding with 300 pound crocodiles, excellent lunch at Villa Caletas with a million dollar view and great food, and an aerial tram ride through the rain forest. We saved $70 per person over the cruise excursion price - and that didn't include as much as Arenas. Highly recommended!

“Great day in Puntas Arenas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

arranged a tour for 10 on cruise port stop...Charlie was our guide and it was an AMAZING day.
All my questions and emails were promptly answered, everything went smoothly and Charlie was a wealth of information. Highlights of the day - Tarcoles river ride with crocodile feeding and abundance of bird sightings, visit to white faced Capuchin monkey reserve - FABULOUS - wonderful lunch with beautiful views at Villa Caletas....

Thank you Enock for arranging our wonderful day and many many thanks to Charlie for making it so extra special and showing us so much on our Costa Rica stop.

“Wildlife Refuge & Waterfall Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Our guide Ronold Molina (Arenas Travel) was friendly and a wonderfully informative guide to the Poas Volcano and the LaPaz Waterfall Gardens. The refuge is at the waterfall gardens and was a great place to see tucans, butterflies, hummingbirds, monkeys, snakes and large cats. It's also a casual walk to the waterfalls and Ronold was good at taking pictures of us on our day trip.

“Thanks for the Miravalles Trip :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Thanks, Charlie, for arranging the Miravalles day-trip when we were able to experience one of your country's best.

Arenas Travel is reliable for their services, from the transportation to tour guiding services. We learned that it was best to contact them directly to arrange our day-trip.

Again, thanks.

P.S. Charlie, the email you gave us for the pictures did not work. So we would attach the pictures that we took of you on our trip to Miravalles vocanic site and waterfall. Hope you don't mind :)

“No worries with Arenas Travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Do you ever have that nagging feeling that despite all you have done to arrange for a perfect trip, something will not go as expected. Well, put any fears aside when arranging services with Enock, the owner of Arenas Travel. We were met dockside in Puerto Caldera exactly as arranged. Enock was our driver for the day and Charlie was our guide. We had a number of delightful experiences along our transfer to Monteverde including feeding capuchin monkeys, seeing howler monkeys and tasting cashew fruits.

We toured the Cloud Forest with Charlie who was not only personable but informative. Lunch at a local restaurant with typico food was also a treat.

We also used Arenas Travel for our transfer to the airport and again, right on time. Charlie again accompanied the driver as he engaged us with information about Costa Rica.

We started as strangers but left as friends.
