        It is the perfect opportunity to get to know unique places in a tropical country with a local bilingual guide that will take you through towns where you can see how the locals live, it depends on the season we cross rivers and we will visit a small waterfall where they can take photos or swim the other option that we have if you like to drive along trails in the forest where we will visit two white sand beaches and stop at a very famous beachfront bar where you can have a drink or taste typical Costa Rican food

        The best
        Top notch tour. Our guide Alejandra picked my daughter and myself up promptly on time. In a new, clean and comfortable car. We were able to stop off and get coffee before we got to our destination. Once there she never left our side making sure that we had the best time ever. Getting photos for us and whatever else we needed. Thanks for such an unforgettable moment.

        Worth every penny
        Our tour guide Alex, was so welcoming and interested in us having a good time; that this was easily the best activity I’ve ever been on. He was friendly, welcoming, funny and inviting to his culture that I could not have had any other opportunity to experience. He was not only knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the river cruise, but made stops to and from pointing out native things that people have used or been accustomed to ready to go. Like natural plant remedies, where to find animals in their native habitat without disturbing them. Knew of local restaurants for native dishes. He even waited for us without a time limit or complaint for souvenirs and taking part on local customs like processing sugar canes.

        Alex on the Beach is the best!!
        We went to Costa Rica in April 2023 for my birthday and a friend recommended Alex on the Beach. Best part of Costa Rica! Alex was seriously wonderful! We did 3 different tours with him during our week vacation, all which were amazing. Alex would customize our tours for us and spent the entire day taking us around to various activities. We did a jungle/rain forest tour, took us to a beautiful waterfall hike and to see the sloth sanctuary. Another day we did a wild life tour and took us to see monkeys and alagators, then to do rapid floating and then to a hot spring with a mud bath and sauna. And we did an adventure tour with zip lining, rapeling and horse back riding. Alex is a wonderful tour guide, he is very knowledgeable about the wild life, nature, culture and history of Costa Rica. He treated us like family while we were with him and would pack us waters/beers, bring us local snacks for our ride. Took the best photos for us! He would pick us up from our hotel and spent the whole day taking us to various activities for an extremely reasonable price. We left Costa Rica having the best time because of Alex. Do yourself a favor and book a tour with Alex, you won’t regret it!

        Boat Taxi
        We had a private boat pick us up from the RIU beach and bring us to Playa Del Coco. The boat was on time and the crew was friendly. It was tricky getting on and off (definitely wear swimwear).

        Excellent again.
        For the second consecutive year, after such a good experience in 2022, we opted to book our tours with Alex on the Beach, at the Monkey Bar (where we went often!). Our first tour was a river boat cruise along the River Tempisque, in the Palo Verde National Park. Our guides for this tour were Alejandra (the driver) and Daniel, who were both superb; genuinely enthusiastic, and extremely knowledgeable about wildlife, and Costa Rica in general. We saw crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, ospreys (Alejandra managed to video one in flight with a fish), herons, fish, bats, and numerous other birds. Excellent experience! We then went to the rainforest, at Spring Paradise Bijagua, where our guide was David. He was again extremely enthusiastic about his job, and amazing at spotting well concealed and camouflaged wildlife! Though it rained heavily for part of the time that we were there, it did not spoil the experience; we bought a couple of ponchos! We saw tree vipers, red eyed tree frogs, poison dart frogs, sloths, hummingbirds, and various other birds. David even took photographs with my 'phone for us, using his binoculars as a telephoto lens! Again, thanks David! We then went to see a chocolate and coffee plantation, and saw the process from tree/plant, to end product, which we sampled. We initially thought that this would be boring, but it was the exact opposite! There were various other plants to see, including bananas. The second tour that we booked was a private (as the "booze cruise" isn't for us!) sunset cruise in the Gulf of Papagayo. The boat was crewed by Michael and "B", and we were again accompanied by Alejandra. We were picked up on the beach outside our hotel (the Riu Palace Guanacaste) at 3.00pm. We toured around "Monkey Island", various beaches, where we saw racoons/coatis, and stopped for my wife to do some snorkelling. We also had dolphins swimming alongside the boat, so close that we could have touched them. "B" also rigged a fishing rod up to let me catch my first Spanish Mackerel! We were supplied with soft drinks, beer, and fresh pineapple. The sunset on the way back to the hotel was spectacular. We would not hesitate to recommend Alex on the Beach for your tours if you are staying in the area. Thanks again to our guides, Alejandra, Daniel (many thanks for the books!), David, Michael, and "B", and to Alex for arranging it all. See you next year hopefully! Robert (Ian) and Denise.

        A relaxing and interesting river trip
        Fernando worked with us on our time since getting there on time was problematic. We probably chose a less than optimal time to go since it was September and not winter in the north when many birds migrate south, but we saw some monkeys, iguanas, crocodiles, and a few birds. The trip is an interesting introduction to wildlife in Guanacaste, and we found the typical lunch very tasty. Fernando is a knowledgeable guide.

        Clean safe travel with Alex
        We have used Alex for several years. We use his services for airport transfer and adventure trips. His vans and cars are clean, safe and newer models, He is always early for pick up and flexible on times. He specializes in personalized adventures. Alex possesses a vast knowledge of his country. His casual conversation of the areas we drive through are fun and educational. We have learned a lot about the history, plants and animals of Costa Rica. The guy seems to have a talent for finding wildlife. We have had other members of his team drive us. Geno is a great associate. He also is a worthwhile guide and can spot animals in the cover of the trees. We have ridden with him so often he has brought his wife and son on occasion. Great people. I highly recommend you give them a try when you go to Costa Rica.

        Absolutely amazing, Walter is a must have your guide
        Great trip!! This excursion has everything you’re looking for… all in a 1 day event. Zip lining, horseback riding, and hot springs. We started our day early where we were met by Walter (our tour guide). We took an hour and a half drive to our destination. We started with the zip line, beginning with some breath taking views. Following this, we took on some horse riding. Led by Walter, we had moments to look at the scenery and animals. We had some opportunities to interact with local families with authentic Costa Rican food. To cap off the day, we had a steam and spa exfoliation with mud and springs. Throughout the entire day Walter was an incredible asset to our group. Provide an enormous amount of information about the trip, locals, wild-life, and amazing entertainment. If you can request a tour guide, we highly recommend Walter. This was our first time in Costa Rica and our first excursion. Walter ensured an amazing experience for us on our honeymoon. We are very thankful.

        Great day with Alex in Liberia
        Such an amazing trip - we spent the day with Alex and he took us all around Guanacaste. He is very friendly and knowledgeable. He did a great job of explaining the culture, the geography and the wildlife we saw along the way. The day we spent with him was the best part of the trip!

        Girls trip/ Rafting and Ziplining
        I went on a girls trip to Costa Rica for a friends 40th bday. We didn't see an excursion that had what we wanted to do which was zipline and water raft only so we messaged and they made it happen! Pablo was fantastic. So patient with all of us and really made us feel so safe. The white water rafting was fun, the guide Luis was hilarious. Half way through we went to a little waterfall and got to jump in the water there. We saw a few white face monkeys on the route and after had a delicious lunch. We then headed to the ziplining. We had 8 lines to do and we were in and out of there in no time. Next time we will book our hotel transportation through them too instead of through the hotel.

        Amazing day of fun!
        What a great day we had. Rosbin picked us up at the hotel and to our surprise told us that this was a private tour. He educated us during the drive on different things we were driving by and kept us laughing with jokes. He gave us the best order to do the combo in and helped get us moved through quickly so that we were waiting on the large bussed in groups. He has a great eye and pointed out tons of animals in the trees as we walked. He took pictures of us along the way and ensured we had a great day. I would definitely recommend Alex on the Beach for your tours! We will be using them again on our next trip here.

        Solid tour
        If you are in contact with Rosbin from sevensensecostarica he also works with Sergio for this mega tour and their other tours. If you don't want to drive all the way to liberia where Sergio is located Rosbin would be more than happy to guide you on the tour. He's located in playa de coco. Rosbin was a great tour guide took photos for us and really was knowledgeable of the area and everything we toured.

        Great Experience in Costa Rica
        We did 2 tours with Alex on the Beach. We travelled as a couple on our own with our Guide which was Pablo Campos on both occasions. He was friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be with and introduced us to some traditional Costa Rican foods. The first tour was the all day Wildlife Tour with Pablo and David. We saw a baby sloth at very close range which was brilliant, a tapir, monkeys, frogs, birds, snakes. A brilliant experience followed by lunch and a boat trip down the Tenorio/Corobici Rivers topped off by a swim in the Llanos de Cortez waterfall. Unforgetable day. Our 2nd trip was to the Hanging Bridges in Heliconias. No wildlife but still memorable especially for me as I am not normally that good with heights. This was followed by ATVs which was a bit of fun. All in all , I would thoroughly recommend Alex on the Beach as a Tour Guide company and also Pablo as a guide, who was brilliant

        Good, Caring Company but make sure you are very clear on what you will be doing
        AotB conducted two tours for us: 4 of us on the Mega Combo tour 6 of us on a 2 hour ATV tour We are 3 couple from the US, aged 65-75, active but not athletic. We visited Costa Rica and we selected tours intended to both entertain us and let us see a little of Costa Rica and experience it's natural beauty and culture. We arranged our tours with Sergio via email and made deposits via Pay Pal. He was wonderful answering our questions, and it was easy to reach him and get our tours booked. Our guide Pablo on the Mega Combo tour was excellent, we could not have been in better hands. He was a pleasure to spend a day with, and went above and beyond in making sure that we were safe, comfortable and did everything we set out to do. I cannot speak highly enough of him or the tour itself which I will review under Buena Vista. For the ATV tour, we booked a 2 hour Beach tour as described on the Alex otB website. We were excited about visiting 5 beaches, and also we were told we would start and end at their restaurant the Monkey Bar. I'm not sure what happened, but we had an ATV tour that went by dirt road through the jungle areas to one beach, Playa Zapotal, and then back to the starting point in Nuevo Colon. We were allowed about 20 minutes to swim and enjoy the beach which had a lovely view of some rock formations off shore, but it was not a beach that enticed any of us to swim. We are disappointed that we neither had an opportunity to go to the Monkey Bar or to see the 5 beaches which were of more interest to us than the land areas we rode through. It was however a fun day, and our guide Randall and his assistant were excellent about making sure we knew how to properly use the ATVs, were safe at all times and especially when in an area with other traffic, and pointed out some monkeys along the way. I would book with this company again if in the area, however I think I would ask for very firm detailed explanation about what I was going to see and do on the ATV ride or any tour that did not have a specific place to go (such as the Mega Combo tour which was going to a specific eco park).

      Alex is simply the middle man between you & actual tour operators on site. I booked ATV waterfall with him for myself & 12 of my family members. We were supposed to have an ATV tour w/ waterfall. There was no attempt to visit a waterfall. When i asked the tour guides about the waterfall, he said that Alex lied to us. And that Alex knew that the waterfall had run dry. Alex refused to take my calls or do anything to try to rectify the situation. We spend $2000 USD with Alex and my group was very disappointed. I am a travel agent and i will NEVER book any of my clients for any of Alex's tours.

      Trash equipment booked through Coco Bay tours. ATVs kept stalling out. False advertising & very arrogant owners.

      This tour is a complete scam!!! Alex made promise after promise that we would see and get to swim in a waterfall!!! Even reminded us several times, to bring swim gear for the waterfall. We never even saw a waterfall, didn’t know the waterfall was “dried up “, until after the tour was over. Initially Alex answered then, stopped answering calls! Our group of 12, was never reimbursed for the inconvenience! Would not recommend!!!!

      100% book all your tours with Rudy from "Alex on the Beach" tours. Rudy signed us up for an ATV excursion, as well as horseback riding. The ATV tour was on my birthday. We stopped at numerous locations for beers and food. Rudy showed us the local towns and areas we could not see from the seclusion of the resort. He delivered big time! The horseback riding was also perfect for my wife and I. He took us out at sunset to a few beaches, and we were able to ride horses on secluded beaches as the sun went into the ocean. Absolutely fantastic!!! Rudy took pictures for us, and even made a video for me later that week. I gained not just a trusted go-to for any future tours, but I gained a friend. I HIGHLY recommend Rudy from Alex on the Beach!!! Thanks again Rudy!!!!!

      Pura Vida!!!!

      Prior to arriving in Costa Rica, reached out to Alex on the Beach through their website. Was responded to quickly by Sergio who provided some options and said he would be at the RIU Guanacaste and could talk more.
      Once there, this group is easy to find and provide lots of information with no pressure.

      Decided to do 4.5 hour ATV with Canopy Trail zip lining. ATV thru local town and back woods area to a small waterfall that provided for a nice cool down with howler monkeys in the trees above.
      Also booked jet ski tour which may have been the highlight. Their subcontractor was going to cancel it due to rough waters however we said we have been in rougher waters and would not complain. Went to a quiet beach with white face monkeys and coati. Stopped for some pictures on the ocean with sunset in background.
      We were a family of 4 and they kept our excursions private.

      Do not hesitate to book with this company.
