We planned a fabulous trip to Costa Rica with Marco at El Camino Travel for April 2020 to celebrate my daughter’s h.s. graduation.o Hñ We were referred by friends who had a great experience. Sadly, we couldn’t go because of COVID-19. No one could have predicted this would go on as long as it has. We thought we would just reschedule and go at a later time. It was not meant to be. El Camino Travel could not have handled this any better. Customer service is their specialty. We were able to cancel our trip without any loss - while I’m sure it wasn’t easy for El Camino. It is rare to find this level of humanity right now. But El Camino is the real deal - and they are the experts for CR travel. We will go to CR and El Camino is the first call we will make.

My boyfriend and I booked a very last minute trip to Costa Rica this month and looked to Camino Travel to help us. Shortly after reaching out, we heard from Marco Hernandez who was awesome to work with. He handled all of our hotel bookings (Arenal and Manuel Antonio) as well as our car rental. When we arrived, everything was in order and our trip was pretty seamless. I would definitely recommend working with the company, and Marco specifically.

As a solo female traveller, contacted Camino, who arranged all my transport needs from airport to return via, Sarapiqui, Monte Verde, Jaco Beach. The service was exemplary! On time, safe, we drove through some extremely bad weather conditions, all the drivers were excellent. Don't hestitate, don't hire a car! just let Camino Travel take the stress.

I was travelling to Costa Rica by myself, without an itinerary, and with only an idea of what I wanted to do. I met the owner of Camino, Helena, on my flight to Costa Rica who was super helpful and delightful and helped me plan my high level itinerary. We decided on 3 days in Arenal for adventure and nature, 3 days in Corcovado for wildlife, and one last day in San Jose to meet her lovely family. When we landed, Helena connected me to Marco, my personal travel designer, who provided me with an incredible itinerary the very next day in just 2 hours! Marco and Helena checked in on me every step of the journey and made sure that I was enjoying my time and getting everywhere safely and on time. The trip was everything I wanted it to be. Helena and Marco were the best. They did an amazing job tailoring my last second Costa Rica solo trip to my preferences. I highly recommend Camino Travel to anyone who is interested in a highly tailored and fairly priced vacation in Costa Rica.
