Playas del Coco, Costa Rica1 contribution
We had a terrific vacation in Costa Rica with our teenagers and adult children. Laura took care of us with clear, responsive planning from beginning to end. Modesto was our wonderful, kind and attentive driver. We had a lovely sunset boat tour with Bogen and Marco that included fishing, paddling boarding and swimming. They had drinks and snacks for us on the boat and fixed a delicious beach lunch - chicken fish and sausage cooked over an open fire and Bogden’s mother’s potato salad. Another day tour guide Steven went with us for a full day of outdoor adventures including zip lining. We especially appreciated his extensive knowledge of the plants and animals we’d been seeing all week.

What an amazing day. Steven picked us up (12 of us including 8 kids) from Playa Flamingo and we spent a full day at Rincon de la Vieja doing it all. River rapid float, zip lining, horse riding, waterfalls and more. Steven is a blast to talk to (he knows everything about CR) and he escorted us through the park which was unexpected and amazing. Our own personal guide. My advice: do it!!!

El Coco Tours far exceeded our expectations! My husband and I recently traveled to Costa Rico with our 3 kids ages 11 – 16 and mother-in-law in her 70’s. We scheduled two excursions with El Coco Tours: the Palo Verde boat tour and the Rincon de la Vieja hike. Laura coordinated all communications, was very responsive, and made scheduling easy. Alberto was our driver and Steven our guide for both excursions. The van was clean and comfortable with working seat belts and strong air conditioning. Pick up at our rental house was prompt. Steven is a truly exceptional guide. He is very passionate about Costa Rican wildlife, especially birds, and is extremely knowledgeable, but also humble. He is honest if he is not certain, and he brought guide books with him to help answer our more obscure questions. He welcomed any and all questions, and his ability to spot wildlife is amazing. We would have only seen a quarter of the animals had Steven not been with us. Probably the most telling: he had us viewing a juvenile hawk while another guide walked their tour right by and thought we were simply taking a rest. Steven also shared about local conservation efforts and challenges as well as history and cultural significance of the sites. And since we only brought cell phones for pictures, he helped us take amazing photos by using his binoculars (a trick I have to learn now). I did not realize this at booking, but these are private excursions and thus Steven tailored each to our personal desires (for instance, our daughter is fascinated by spiders/insects, so Steven made sure we had ample time during the hike to observe such). Our daughter is also vegetarian and Steven ensured she was accommodated during the included lunches. El Coco Tours made our excursions very special, and we will book with them again when we have a chance to return. I can highly recommend.

I plan events for a business takes large groups on incentive programs. I am traveling for pleasure at this time. They handled everything from airport transfer planning all my family activities - National park, Zip-lining, and buggy rides. The staff and tour guides were amazing taking time point local wildlife, sharing the history and culture with us. We had the best time. I will use them again and I will recommend them to event planners who bring programs to Costa Rica.

Laura assisted us with many details that made our stay in Playa Flamingo amazing. She put together a day trip for my family (mother, husband, sister, 2 brothers in law, all ages 50 to 76) that satisfied all of us. Adventure, beautiful flora, exotic animals and fabulous food. Isaac was an awesome guide! He is friendly, knowledgeable, caring and very accommodating. He got my 76 year old mother down and back up the hike to the Blue River safely. He was also our driver from the airport to our destination and for a day trip to Tamarindo. He provides a local experience with his knowledge of the area and recommendations. We all enjoyed spending time with Isaac!
