I can’t sing his praises enough! Chico stepped in last minute when the guide we had booked – a friend of Chico (EVERYBODY is his friend and we can see why) was taken very ill. After much consideration, our group of 4 had decided to NOT rent a car (a very wise decision as it turned out) Chico met us... More

Chico knows everybody, his personalized service is amazing. We toured rain forest bird watching. Did the crocodile river cruise with Crocodile Man himself, and visited a friend's backyard jungle with 35 + capucin monkees. And yes ladies and gentlemen. 6 passengers in a comfortable van, with a shopping stop to boot. For well less than a cruise ship tour on... More

This man and his son are absolutely superb. They ferried me around and even took me fishing (after buying the tackle). that was all I wanted, what a fantastic break from a grotty cruise with Noble Caledonia. Do use these guys they are great

We arrived in Punta Arenas as one of our cruise destination. As time was limited, a group of us wanted a panoramic tour to appreciate the lush beauty of Costa Rica. We met Chico at the pier exit. He is a mature pleasant gentleman. Not aggressive. One couple decided to go zip lining instead, and he was willing to accommodate.... More

Owner of this business was wonderful. He handled all of our tours down to the finest detail. Everyone enjoyed this vacation and hooking up with Chico enhanced it. We were a wide assortment of ages, from 12 to 86. He made it all possible, including a wheelchair for my mom. Our entire family would recommend this tour guide. He is... More

We found Chico on our trip to Puntarenas, Costa Rica in Jan., 2015. We found him to be very honest, accommodating, a gentleman, a family man, and man who loves to show the beauty of his country to others. Chico has fabulous ears and eyes and can tell when the monkeys are coming from the forest. Chico speaks good English... More

We were a group of 11 people and Chico took very good care of us for the entire week. He took us back and forth to the airport and tours to the rainforest in Monte Verde, canopy zip lining, Tortuga Island and Jaco beach. There was a lot of extras thrown in such as stopping and feeding the wild monkeys... More

We booked with him to go to Tortuga. each tour company seems to have a middle man depending on how you book and thru whom. they all seemed to do it but Chico seemed most honest. not always cheapest but we really liked him and his dad. Used him for transport to the airport on departure. he was on time... More

Four of us chose to take a tour with Chico over renting a car, and I am glad we did. The cost was a bit higher, but Chico was a great guide. He certainly knows the country, made some great suggestions, and stayed with us the whole day. He speaks english clearly, and has some great connections. He called ahead... More

Visited Costa Rica for the first time in November of this year, it was a great trip made even better thanks to Chico and his family at Chicostours.com. We had the privilege of meeting Chico, his daughter Julia and son Michael. I contacted the Double Tree Central Pacific several weeks prior to our scheduled departure concerning transportation to the hotel... More
