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.

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

Just returned from a great day with Mainor Lara the owner. He specializes in small groups and one on one service. With another couple we booked him for the day. He is pleasant, knowledgeable and made the tour fun. During our loop hike in the park we saw a lot of wildlife in addition to volcanic activity. He was great... More

My mother and I went to the Monteverde Cloud Forest tour last week with Tours Your Way. This was an amazing trip. We were to be picked up at 6:00 at our resort gate. Mom and I got to the gates 15 min early and our guide and driver arrived as we were walking through the gates. Our guide Ray... More

Mainor and his cousin, Ray, gave us an amazing experience on the Mega Combo day tour. They arrived promptly at 7:00am, gave a good commentary along the way and answered all our questions. They really went above and beyond what we had expected. The first activity was Zip lining, which was the first time for 2 out of the 3... More

Mainor is great!!! We did the zip line tour, the Tenorio white water rafting, and the Nicaragua day trip and every time Mainor gave the tour the personal touch our group wanted. He went above and beyond by helping our group find specific things we had requested like antique irons to snorkel gear at a good price. Basically the name... More

We booked a private tour for a riverboat to take us bird-watching. Absolutely perfect in every way from the friendly guide and driver to the private boat ride to the many sights we saw: two typs of monkey, crocs, iguana, bats, scarlet macaws, and all types of water fowl. The lunch was also very good. Highly recommend.

Mainor, Ray and his family come highly recommended from us. They have a laid back approach but are very knowledgeable and accommodating. A family business with a family approach. Always on time and fun for all

We have had over 11 tours and transfers arranged with Tours Your Way over our 2 trips to Costa Rica and Mainor and his team have always been very reliable and prompt for transfers and very... More

Tours your Way is just that. Anything you want Mainor and his team will try to deliver. We were a group of 5 spending 10 days in Tamarindo. We were looking to do an over night tour to Arenal Volcano and Tours Your Way came right to the top. Every correspondence with Mainor was quickly and completely answered. I told... More
