Booked trips through this company both from SJO and to SJO from Dominical. First ride was on the day after Christmas, and due to a scheduling hiccup on their side, Erick himself personally drove out and picked us up to take us on a 4 hour+ drive 1 way no questions asked! He took us to a local coffee shop that overlooked a valley, and even bought us some coffee from there! Also made stops at gas stations for restroom breaks as well as buying us water again! We also managed to stop at the crocodile bridge that was the source of the traffic we sat in for a bit haha. All around excellent service. Edgar was our driver on the way back at 8am New Year's Day, and he was excellent as well and made sure to get us to SJO in time for our Covid test time slots. Really recommend anyone to use this service, they know the area extremely well and are full of funny stories to share. Make the long drives seem not so long by the end of it, and definitely became a core memory from our trip overall!

We hired a private transfer for two trips (Fortuna to Manuel Antonio, and Manuel Antonio to San Jose). On both occasions, we enjoyed safe driving, a detailed explanation of the history and culture of areas we passed, indicating the flora and fauna in the area (our favourite was the scarlet macaw!), and well-calculated stops to maximise the knowledge while ensuring we arrived in a timely manner. The driver was effectively a tour guide and a great person to talk to about Costa Rica. Very professional as well. We look forward to booking them again when we visit Costa Rica next time.

I came across Erick's transportation service a week before my trip to Costa Rica after doing more research in trying to find the best prices for private transfers... and thank God I did! Not only were the rates 10x more affordable than the service I was going to use before, but from the moment I chatted with Erick, he was very kind and patient and answered any and all questions I had. Mind you, this is before my group was in CR. But when I tell you our minds were blown away by the service from the moment we touched down and connected with our driver (Geraldo). During our entire week in Costa Rica, our drivers Geraldo and Heriberto took good care of us and fulfilled any requests we had (grocery store stops, food stops, scenic stops, you name it!) and made sure we were good and enjoying our time in CR! Erick also checked in on us from time to time and made sure to update us of any changes. This kind of hospitality from a transportation service... we were truly stunned! Erick and his company took care of us like family and we were so grateful for it during our trip! Book with them immediately because you'll be getting more than just transportation services, but a firsthand taste of that Costa Rican hospitality!

Thank you again Erick!!!!

I can't say enough good things about this company. When my boyfriend and I went to CR in January 2021, we wanted to be more cautious and take shuttles, as to avoid some crowds. We technically signed up for the shared shuttles, but most of the time, there was nobody else signed up for the shuttle at the same time and it ended up being private.

We used this company throughout our two weeks. Airport to MA; Jaco to La Fortuna; Fortuna to Heredia.

They were very accommodating. For example, we missed our flight from TX to CR and I was able to reach out to the company to move our shuttle time to the next day. Then, when we arrived in CR the next day, my bag was not delivered and we once again needed a delay on our shuttle. I'm sure business is slower right now, making them more capable of accommodating like they did. But they were very nice and patient with us. They were clean and being cautious. The prices are also reasonable!

Just returned from 8 wonderful days in Costa Rica. Thank you to Erick and his team for taking care of all of our transportation needs -- from SJO to Ojochal, Ojochal to Bajos del Toro, and then back to SJO. Erick always responded to my questions in a timely manner. He and his drivers were prompt, helpful and polite. We felt safe in our travels and enjoyed learning more from them about this beautiful country, its people and history. All the vehicles we rode in were new, clean and comfortable. Will call Erick the next time we're lucky enough to visit Costa Rica. You should too. Highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I did two private transfers with this company, one from Cahuita to Turrialba and one from Turrialba to Samara. This was a lifesaver, well a trip saver for sure, because the bus routes between these destinations are indirect and require lots of bus changes. We had the same driver, Geraldo, for both transfers and we absolutely loved him. He was very nice and very attentive to us, and always quick to point out cool things along our route and give us some background on places we passed through. Our first transfer occurred during a huge downpour and subsequent flood, and we weren't sure if the road would be passable, but Eric was in contact with me the morning of the transfer and kept me updated so as to eliminate uncertainty, which is so nice in that kind of situation! The van was very comfortable and roomy, great for a couple of long rides. We will definitely use this company again on our next trip!

I’ve used Erick and his team for shuttle services each time I’ve come to Costa Rica- they’re fantastic. Erick is very responsive, punctual and a pleasure to be around, as are all of his drivers. He’s also very well priced for the service. I’ve always felt safe and comfortable using them and look forward to next time!

We used them for transport to the San Jose airport from the Jaco area. Our driver, Osvaldo, was on-time, friendly and informative. He was aware of our timeline and made appropriate suggestions for quick stops we might enjoy. The van was roomy, clean and comfortable.

Horrible service. We asked days in advance if they were able to come to our location in Santa Teresa. There was no problem there, and they would be at our door. 30 min before they were supposed to pick us up they said the road was closed and that we needed to take a taxi, 6km, to where the driver was. We couldn’t get to the location since we were 4 passengers with a lot of bags. There was no way with our bags as we told the company. The company didn’t write back for 30 min and then they told me they had sent the driver back. So they left us in a situation where we couldn’t get from Santa Teresa to our location on the same day. When we confronted the owner he was super unprofessional and didn’t help at all. Didn’t write in a nice way at al. Would never recommend this company to anyone.

Isabella, we are very sorry that extraordinary circumstances beyond our control prohibited us from being able to complete our transportation service agreement with your group. We drove for 4 hours to Santa Teresa to be on time for picking you up. However, 11 km before we could get to you, the road was completely blocked and closed for repairs, with no certainty of when it would re-open. This is the only drivable road to get to Santa Teresa without having to ford rivers, which is impossible in our vans. We worried we would not arrive on time and one hour before our agreed pick-up time, we contacted you to explain the situation. We asked you to find one of the local taxi services to take you to meet our driver on the other side of the blocked area and told you we would pay for that. Unfortunately, you didn't want to take this option and said we had to solve the situation by looking for alternate routes. Sadly, this is not an option in the remote Santa Teresa area due to very bad alternate route conditions that cross rivers, and our minivans are not 4x4 – which we explained to you. It is very unfortunate that we could not come to an agreement to resolve the unforeseen and irregular situation that occurred. It is important for you and all visitors to Costa Rica to understand that roads in many areas of the country are not in optimal conditions and road closures can happen without prior notice, all of which are beyond our control. We do our best to stay up-to-date on route information, but it is not always possible to know everything. We offered a creative solution that we feel would have easily solved the problem. We simply needed more flexibility from your side.
