Joe treated me extremely kindly, he taught me characteristics of Costa Rica that I never thought I would know! He took me and my family to Rio Celest, he showed me sloths and extremely unique waterfalls. The price was comfortable and affordable, I don't regret hiring their services!

Very good excursions to Buena Vista and Polo Verde with a private chaufeur at the same price of all them big company ones such as Expedia and hotel ones. They were located right at the beach access at Margaritaville, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Shout out to the wonderful agent Douglass, such a great, person, and honest guy. Very good English. Our private chaufeur was great as well. Had a great time! Saw monkeys, crocs, water falls, hot springs. Did 7 ziplines in and over the jungles for the price of maybe 2 in the states. Also had a traditional Costa Rican meal on the excursions which was so cool. Well worth the price, which really wasn't that much in comparison to the US. Pura vida!!!

Utilize the hotel's services or call the business direct. These guys are calling the same companies you should be calling and charging more. They promise the best but have no responsibility when things go bad. They will take your money with no chances of refund.

We were staying at Margaritaville in Playa Flamingo. We met Douglas and his coworkers on the beach. They coordinated two tours for our family. An ATV trip for 6 which was awesome. We saw monkeys and three or four amazing beaches. This is definitely a great way to experience the area. Bernard provided transportation from the hotel to the ATVs and Julio was a great guide.

The kids also went horseback riding on the beach. Not sure this is the best way to ride, but they delivered on what they promised and everyone had a good time.

Douglas and Joe provided my girlfriend and I am exceptional experience here in Costa Rica. Amazing fishing trip, snorkeling and also they both provided excellent hospitality and friendliness throughout our trip.

We were sold a snorkeling and sight seeing tour on a beautiful boat including food and drinks. We ended up stranded in the ocean on a broken down old boat with 2 bags of chips and a 2 liter of soda. It was way to rough to snorkle and we never got to see anything. We ended up being towed back to the marina and the whole thing was a BUST. The workers were very friendly and truly felt bad. Their office workers, however, were not. They refuse to respond to messages or offer any compensation. Horrible customer service. I would highly recommend avoiding this company. I understand things don't always go according to plan, but they refuse to make it right or even communicate. AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Our family of 17 stayed at Margaritaville in Costa Rica. From day 1 this man named
Douglas stood outside the resort and nonstop hassled us to book an excursion with his company "Los Pirates De Flamingo Tours". We agreed to do a boat ride on the ocean where they'd take us snorkeling and site seeing. The trip was to go from 2:30-6:30. We met Douglas at 2:30pm where we were to be picked up and driven to the boat. Douglas said our ride was running late. After and hour of waiting, one truck pulls up and expects all 17 of us to get in. They wanted all the kids to ride in the back of the truck! We said, "No, that's too dangerous!" So we waited longer for another vehicle to come. Finally we get a ride to the boat. Turns out the boat is complete trash and there's only a few life jackets. They were to provide drinks and food. All they had for the 17 of us was 2-2 liters of ice tea and a few bags of chips. We take off onto the ocean. It takes about an hour to get to our destination. They drop anchor way out from shore and pass out very chintzy snorkel equipment. The water is too deep to snorkel. We ask that they take us closer to shore. They say, "The boat stays here." So we all got back in the boat since we couldn't snorkel. Everyone is frustrated. We say, "Alright, let's
skip snorkeling, just take us sight seeing." They go to start the boat and it's completely dead. A passing by boat picks up our captain. He said he will be back in 25 minutes. He left us stranded in the ocean for hours. Finally he comes back with another boat that doesn't even have lights. It pulls us back to the resort which took forever. We choked on the exhausted fumes of the boat towing us. All the kids were getting nauseous and crying. It was a complete nightmare. We paid well over thousand dollars and they wouldn't refund us. They just kept giving us the runaround. We're not even able to get a hold of somebody in charge. COMPLETE RIP OFF!! Don't go near "Pirate De Flaming Tours."

Douglas from Los Pirates is great! He was very friendly and speaks perfect English. We consider him a friend after our recent trip to Costa Rica and Margaritaville. His office is right outside the Margaritaville hotel. He offers great prices and great tours. Also, you can trust Douglas. It was my 14 year old son's first time on an ATV and Douglas made sure he was taken care of and helped me not to feel nervous about driving one. We also had a great tour. We highly recommend this compnay.

Booked a horseback riding tour for my wife and I and could not be any more pleased! Met Douglas outside our hotel (Margaritaville) and he was extremely helpful! He speak English fluently, knows everyone in the area, and was both fair and communicative the entire week. We were specific to wanting sunset horseback tours, chances to go in the water, and privacy and man did he deliver! We gave a deposit (over 50%), which we were nervous about, but Douglas is very trustworthy and fair and put us at ease. He arranged for the horses to meet us outside the hotel and we were able to ride down several beaches over the course of 2.5 hours and had one of the most romantic experiences to date. We could not recommend this company, or specifically Douglas, any more and will definitely return on our next Costa Rican adventure.

Douglas from Los Pirates and his team are the best!! I was staying at Margaritaville and his "office" is on the beach just as you leave the resort. He speaks perfect English and can assist with ANY of your needs from tours to watersports to beach cabanas. He arranged a perfect spot on the beach for our family for the entire week that we were there. His prices are less then the other choices and his service is far better. You can't go wrong with Douglas and "Los Pirates" as your Flamingo Beach concierge!!!
