We had a group of four of us from Boston visit Tamarindo this past week and Paul was recommended to use for our tours we wanted to do! He brought us on the best adventure tour by Liberia that included a full day of ziplining, horseback riding, river tubing, lunch, waterfalls, hot springs and mud baths. That tour was absolutely amazing and highly recommended! He also set us up with a sunset boat tour that was from 1-6pm and was out of Tamarindo beach. That boat tour was so much fun, including delicious food and open bar. They also stopped and anchored by a nearby cove provided snorkeling, kayaking, & float noodles. We even got to see a whale and some dolphins! Our vacation was amazing and having Paul bring us on these tours and give us suggestions of the best restaurants and beaches in the area made our trip! We all highly recommend reaching out to Blue Crab and having Paul help you make your vacation the best it can be!

Ronald was the best host in all of Costa Rica! My fiancé and I had an amazing time and he set us up with the best adventures and excursions during our stay. One day we booked him as our personal guide and he drove us around Guanacaste to do excursions and find waterfalls while also educating us on Costa Rican history. He will be the only tour guide we use when we visit again and I highly recommend using his Blue Crab tour company for any of your adventures/excursions you will not be disappointed.

It was our first time in Costa Rica and Blue Crab Tours was a huge part of us falling in love with the country.

We met Paul and his staff at the wedding we were there for and they hosted all of the tours and rides for the wedding so perfectly that we ended up sticking with Blue Crab for our whole trip.

Afterwards, Paul was able to take us to town, our next accommodations, the airport, and a whole day of tours including rain forests, volcanoes, horses, zip lining, hot springs, tubing, and water falls. It was incredible and you have to do this when you visit!

Paul is so great to talk to and an excellent guide. He goes above and beyond to make your trip perfect and special. We can't thank him enough for everything.

We are so excited to come back next year. Couldn't recommend Blue Crab Tours more!

Was highly recommended to company. Great experience with adventures zip lining through jungle, horseback riding, and tubing. Easy transportation provided to excursion area. Loved so much booked boat cruise for later in the week. Multiple meals provided. Open bar. Great staff! Affordable price. Blue crab was very accommodating and the perfect middle man to see the beauty of Costa Rica

We just returned from a family vacation to Costa Rica and had an amazing trip. Paul, with Blue Crab Tours, was absolutely incredible. He worked with me to find the perfect itinerary for my family, was always prompt (if not early) to drive us to excursions/the airport, and was very knowledgeable about the area. Additionally, he was very responsive, patient with my rambunctious kiddos, and easy going. My kids love adventure and Blue Crab did not disappoint! Some of the highlights included tubing, riding on ATV’s, ziplining, horseback riding, and ending one of our action packed days with a dip in hot spring pools. Highly recommend Paul and Blue Crab Tours!!!

I can’t recommend Blue Crab Water Adventures and Tours enough! I spent 3 weeks in Costa Rica and Paul made each day and excursion unforgettable! Paul is extremely efficient and timely and made sure are trip went smooth. His knowledge of the the area and insight allowed us to get the most out of our experience. Not only did he suggest and bring us on the the best tours (catamaran, waterfalls, ATV rides, trips down the coast of Costa Rica, etc.) he also recommended the best restaurants and accommodations. Not only does Paul bring you on once in a lifetime adventures but he also provides reliable transportation and brought us to some must see local spots that are off the beaten path. If you are planning to visit Costa Rica, Paul is the only call you need to make! I am already planning my next trip back and can’t wait to see Paul at the airport the day I arrive!

A young guy from Boston who dove head first into the jungle to live his dream. Very professional and on time with everything we booked. Even went out of his way for our friends and family when we needed to change things last minute for our wedding. If you are wearing about traveling out of the country, Paul is the guy for you. He’s American and speaks better Spanish than the locals and knows both worlds like the back of his travel van. His knowledge and experience are priceless and will never steer you in the wrong direction. My wife and I highly recommend his services and even invited him to our wedding because he was so personal and felt more like a family friend than a tour guide. Thank you so much again Paul. Our wedding trip would not have turned out as perfect without you and your team.

We had the pleasure of doing a boat tour down to isle Tortuga while staying in Hacienda Pinilla. Paul picked us up in the morning and drove us there and back for the day (which was a 2.5 hour drive each way) and accompanied us on the boat tour. Paul was amazing - he gave us a lot of information about Costa Rica and the area and made the trip feel totally safe (especially when travelling back in the early evening when it was dark). The boat ride was excellent - seeing the spider monkeys was great. We hit the beach, had lunch on a floating restaurant and did some snorkelling. We didn’t speak Spanish at all and he made the adventure enjoyable as he was able to communicate on our behalf. I would certainly go again and highly recommend having Paul with you!!. He mentioned to us he organized other amazing tours. We will totally look up Paul and arrange other tours when we come back!!

Paul was absolutely amazing. We were in Costa Rica for the first time for my best friend’s wedding and Paul could not have been more accommodating, flexible, and reliable. With traveling during Covid times, things happen and can change and Paul took every challenge and obstacle and made it into a positive experience. He was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and made our vacation amazing. The right tour guide can make or break your trip and with Paul, he truly made the trip. My sister had to stay extra days in Costa Rica and he took on extra tasks and trips to ensure she was ok and safe being in a foreign country by herself. Thank you Paul for going above and beyond to ensure our group was well taken care of and for making sure my best friend had an amazing, stress free, and memorable wedding week. Highly recommend!!!!

What luck that the host of our VRBO house recommended Paul. He gave us many options for whatever we wanted to do. We did zip lines, a catamaran cruise, an ATV tour, a sailing trip- highly recommend Pegasus Pacifico. We lucked out with multiple rainbows and the most amazing sunset on the 40' sailboat. Paul was always ready and waiting with a big smile when we returned from each adventure.
Always arrived on time, exactly when expected. Also did several airport runs for our group. One at 4am.
Having an American was helpful in terms of language. He made reservations for us at some local restaurants because we had trouble making calls. I just texted where and when we wanted to go and he took care of it for us.
He also knows everything about the area and can tell you all you'd like to know.
Friendly, sweet, and helpful- indeed you'd Better call Paul!!!
