The kids saw crocodiles and we actually had white faced monkeys climb onto our boat. The tico lunch provided after the tour was delicious! We then did a snorkeling tour with Fabian which... More

We booked 3 tours with Issys on a recent trip. #1 - Megacombo - This was a fantastic day! We zip lined, rode horses, did the water slide and hot springs/mud bath. Even the food was delicious. The best part was our tour guide Gerson. He was awesome, probably the best tour guide that we have ever had. One example... More

We loved our guide Julio. He was very pleasant and accommodating. Good with my 6 & 8 year old. He gave us good suggestions regarding restaurants. Chris is very prompt with emails. I recommend them. Made the trip very hassle free.

Everyone from Chris who answers emails to Julio who took us on our zip lining adventure and Marcos who was the captain of our snorkeling boat were AWESOME!! They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was a perfect experience. I... More

Had a great time fishing with Marcous and his father. I brought two of my kids and had a great 1/2 day out on the ocean.

Excellent group of employees with reliable service. From my early pre-trip planning questions to during trip double checks - Chris was a quick and friendly communication specialist making sure I was properly coordinated and had any info I requested. Both drivers for my transportation service were on time (including a 4:30am departure pick-up), friendly, and safe. And for my Sunset/Snorkel... More
