My name is Mainor Lara Bustos. I am a native Costa Rican, who was born and raised in the north pacific province of Guanacaste. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Liberia is located in this province and is a popular travel destination for many North American & European tourists visiting Costa Rica.Fortunate for me, I grew up in one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. With nature right at my doorstep, it was easy for me to become intimately familiar with all of Costa Rica natural beauty.

Great tour! Saw lots of animals including up close encounter with white-faced monkeys on the river. One even climbed onto the roof of the boat! The lunch was delicious as well. The waterfall was a real highlight. We were able to swim in the most beautiful waterfall for as long as we wanted. Our guide, Mainor, was patient and professional-... More

We loved Tours Your Way. You can change plans mid trip and their genuine response is "No problem! It's Tours Your Way". One day our TYW drive drove us from the Papagayo Peninsula 5 hours up to the rain forests in the mountains. Halfway back we realized we left our camera in a restaurant in the mountains. Our driver called... More

I started corresponding with Mainor about 10 months before we booked our tours. He always responded very quickly and answered all of my questions. We booked two tours and airport transfer with Tours Your Way and everything was fantastic.

We did two tours with Tours Your Way, and both experiences were amazing! Our vacation wouldn't have been the same had we not found this company. Our guide, Ray, took us to Rio de Celeste and spotted tons of wildlife and showed us beautiful scenery, including a waterfall we could swim in. Another day we went zip lining, horseback riding,...

Mainor essentially made our 10 days in Costa Rica a success. We were 3 elderly couples in our 70s who wanted to see the animals and ecology, not the zip lines, beaches and thrill rides (other reviews deal with how appropriate Tours Your Way is for that). The important general qualities he has are that he is a very smart,... More

I corresponded with Mainor before we went to Costa Rica. He responded several times explaining every question I threw at him. So I booked with him. He promised us a private tour with personal touch. He arrived right on time. We had an air conditioned comfortable vehicle. He was very knowledgeable about his country. Pointed out several different animals &... More

We had a great time with Mainor on our river boat tour. He was fun, knowledgeable and made our trip very enjoyable. We seen more wildlife in a couple hours than in all the other tours we have been on in Costa Rica. We enjoyed it so much we have a 2nd tour booked next week. Thanks Mainor
