Jose and Jenna were amazing from start to finish! Jenna answered all of our MANY questions very quickly. On the day of the tour Jose, Pedro and Poncho were all very accommodating, funny, helpful and took the time to point out and show us a few extras along the way. My little niece said she wanted to drink from a coconut and Jose made a stop and we all got to drink from a coconut! And the fresh coconut was amazing! We had a traditional Costa Rican meal at a local restaurant and they were very attentive to my dietary requirement (celiac) and made sure it was safe for me to eat! We were a family group of 10 with three teens and three under 6. Guana Adventures is top notch! Highly recommend them for all your tours! You won’t be disappointed!!

We booked airport transfers, the sunset sail, and beach hopping tours during our stay in Playas del Coco.

Jenna sent us a confirmation itinerary and clearly communicated the details, payment options, pickup/drop-off locations, etc.

During our stay, Jenna was easy to communicate with through What's App and even met us prior to departure for our Sunset Sail.

Airport transfers were on time with friendly, professional drivers.

The sunset sail was great. There were only about 50 of us so plenty of room and we had a friendly, responsive captain and support staff. It was a lot of fun - good drinks, food, snorkeling, music and a waterslide.

The beach hopping tour was also excellent. Our driver recommended how long to stay at each beach. The first three were beautiful, walkable, swimmable, and not crowded at all (we went on a Friday). And we were treated to a beautiful sunset at Tamarindo to end our trip.

Highly Recommend Guana Adventures!

Without Jenna and Guana Adventure my boyfriend and I would have never spent two incredible nights and three amazing days enjoying and exploring Ometepe Island Nicaragua. We needed to do a border run (she comes highly recommended) and when connected with her she suggest this amazing idea which we jump on immediately - life’s about adventure. The trip was exactly want we wanted. Stayed at a beautiful hotel on the Island, rented ATVs to explore, enjoyed stunning aqua natural springs and capped the days off with incredible sunsets on the beach. Ever detail was planned from the transportation, to our accommodation, and our guide who really made the trip also! Would definitely recommend them for any of the tours they offer but even more so if you want something especially designed just to your liking. Can’t wait for you to help us plan our next epic adventure, thanks so much!

To anyone looking to book an excursion, we highly recommend booking guana adventures and request Ricardo as your tour guide. He was absolutely amazing from start to finish. He was super friendly, genuine, and very knowledgeable about all Costa Rica has to offer. He accommodated all of our needs and made sure our trip was worth every penny. He was a pleasure to be around and waited on our hand and foot. We don't usually write reviews but felt this one was well deserved.

I took my family on the Palo Verde tour and the tour itself was very good. Ricardo was our guide and he was awesome. He was great at giving information as well as getting along with my rambunctious kids and taking care of my elderly parents. The tour was also interesting. However, there were some problems. The bus was making funny noises when we were picked up and we had to go to a shop and wait an hour and a half to get it fixed. It broke down completely on the way home and we had to wait for another one to come get us and we missed the last stop of the tour. There was also supposed to be water on the tour, but there wasn't. I brought some, but it wasn't enough and espeically with the long delay in the morning andnowhwere to refill, we spent a lot of the day very very thirsty.

I totally get it, sometimes bad things happen. The real test of a company is how they handle these problems that arise. When I emailed Jenna to let her know what happened, the response was just kind, well sometimes that happens. Sorry. As a small business owner myself, when we have clearly let the customer down, we make every effort to make it right. There was minimal acknowledgment of fault and no attempt to make amends.

We had an excellent experience using Guana Adventures on multiple occasions during our trip to CR 🇨🇷 Both Jenna and Jose were super informative and quick to respond. After being in the country for 3 months, our trip to Nicaragua was stress free and fun and we didn’t have to worry about anything travelling with our 2 young kids. It was great. We did a lot of shopping around and their prices were very competitive and hard to beat. They went over and above to ensure we had everything we needed and our experience was a great one. Even during the holidays when some places weren’t open or running tours, when I wanted to make a last minute booking to take my kids horseback riding, they somehow made it happen! They were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend their services 100 times over. Pura Vida!!

We used Jose company for a hole day trip to El Rincon de la Vieja and it was wonderful. He picked us up at our hotel early and took us to the park where he had everything planned, lunch, zipline for my wife and my daughter, lunch, horseback riding and ended with thermales. Excellent service, fluent english and spanish, funny and well educated on Costa Rica.
We recommended 100%. Everything was book online and on the phone and it was as he explained and offered. We used his service a second day for a 3 hrs Ride in four wheels. If your are going to Guanacaste area for business or vacation, you should contact him for anything and everything

Jenna was amazing and efficient with facilitating a private sail. We were 5 people who wanted to enjoy an afternoon sunset cruise. Because of covid, we did not want to sail with others, Jenna was able to help us plan a dream afternoon within our budget.
Her English is perfect (from Canada), her knowledge of the area is impressive, and she answers all questions almost immediately. Her service is very reliable.
All arrangements were as scheduled and executed with perfection. We were on The Spirit of the Ocean which was ideal in size ( could have held more passengers comfortably), with room in front to sunbathe, a shaded area in the back, as well as a bathroom. Miguel and Kevin were awesome crew, making sure all our needs were perfectly taken care of. We will absolutely do this again and I look forward to having Jenna plan more fun activities for us to enjoy.

Jenna planned a catamaran cruise for our family of six and it was her day off so she and Jose joined us. We had the best time! They took us to two different beaches for snorkeling and the catamaran was awesome the whole way. All drinks were included and we had a great meal towards the end. The crew was great and it was very relaxing. You could lay out on the front of the catamaran or sit on the roof. Highly recommend this for anyone who is looking for a fun boat ride and some snorkeling! Jenna and Jose were so much fun!
