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!!!

It was my first time visiting the area with my boyfriend we weren’t sure what we could do. We met Richard who was so kind and help arrange an ATV tour for the following day. The tour was so fun and took us to a lot of places. I HIGHLY recommend for anyone who wants something fun to do it’s a great experience. I will definitely be going back the next time I visit Costa Rica again soon. We had so much fun thank you again!

Very good experience, we did an atv tour and we went to two beaches and went across some little rivers, at the end we went to a lookout with an excellent view of some beaches. We also rented two jet skis and we used them around Flamingo beach but we would have liked to have a tour guide and go to some other places, overall very good experience. I recommend their services

Douglas was great, we did a Catamaran trip, the BEST Horseback ride on the beach I have ever had and a private tour to a Waterfall that was crazy fun. We saw parts of Costa Rica we would not have known where there if not for them explaining what they had to offer. The prices were not cheap, just we more than got our moneys worth.
Would use them again if we ever went back. They showed Pura Vida to us and helped us understand the great people and beautiful country. Signed the 2 Sisters and the adopted sister.

Douglas opened my eyes to a great experience. He's very accommodating, and the perfect contact for everything Costa Rica. Very aware of how a tourist can be overwhelmed he works hard to hook you up with affordable and quality adventures. Panache Catamaran was well worth it! It's nice to put money in the hands of locals rather than big internet booking companies that gouge.

By reading all the bad reviews is like living again our very bad experience. We were offered a half day fishing tour with snorkeling and sunset, just to begin the battery of the boat didn’t work so we had to wait almost an hour for the captain to go to another boat to get another battery, after it was fixed we were taken for snorkeling which was the only good 30 minutes of this trip, then we were taken to a beach called “love beach” once we were there the captain (Luis) started playing with some cables on the main console of the boat, and like 10 min after that the motor went dead.
Luis insisted that we went in to the water to do more snorkeling which we didn’t want to, and we asked him to turn the boat and take us for the fishing part of the tour, he got mad and said there was no fishing included, they didn’t even have bait or anything else to go for fishing, right there he told us the the boat wasn’t working and were stuck in there, I had to call back Richard who sold me tour to coordinate myself for somebody else to go and pick us up because Luis the captain at this point didn’t want to talk to us or coordinate anything, in his head was our fault that the boat broke down. Richard I would say is the good talker of the company, he sells you the tour and when the tough time comes he knows what to say but actually doesn’t solve anything, I’m sure he will reply to this cleaning themselves of responsibility as I can see in other reviews. I just hope that Harry (the helper) can find a better company to work for, he doesn’t deserve to work with that company, if we can call it like that. Be aware of this fraude, don’t use them.

Please please DO NOT ever book with these unprofessional street vendors.They are thugs and cheat you out of your money.I booked an ATV tour with them today and he quoted me a price,upon negotiation,we agreed to a price of 130 for 2 double rider atv rides for 2 hrs.Ends up he send us to some local mom and pop home who has 6 beatup atvs ,no goggles or masks provided ,piece of junk.He took cash so we had no choice but to go for it.Once the tour started ,15 mins later one atv stopped as it had some mechanical issue,took him 30 mins to start,He however did not give us any extra time for the lost,and brought us back the same time we were supposed to come back.Upon going back I complained and he refused to give any compensation and asked me to call the police.The jerk who took us was so illmannered that he rolled up his window while I was talking to him.He claimed that he gave us extra time becaus ehe included the wait time while we waited for other riders(who supposedly were his family)and time to gas up the vehicles.Most unprofessional people ever,I hope this complaint goes to the police department and also the tourism authority and I hope their license gets revoked for cheating tourists.
They also stand right in front of the renowned margaritaville and cheat tourists.I am going to forward this to the menager so that they are kicked out of that spot.
