We used their services to travel from our hotel to Coco Beach. The bus was Very clean and the journey was speedy given the roads here. The driver didn't need to be informative but was Very polite. A good company to travel with.

We took a van with another couple to Coco Beach. We paid $15.00 per person for a round trip. Good service. Left the hotel at 5 pm and we were picked up at 7:30. Souvenir shopping was good.
