My boyfriend and I booked a zip-lining and white water rafting combo tour through Costa Rican Trails, and had an excellent time. We were staying in San Jose and didn't have the option to travel very far in one day, and this tour was perfect for that. The only hiccup we experienced on the whole trip was our pickup -... More

Costa Rican Trails acted as the local partner for the UK-based travel firm we used for a two-week tour through Costa Rica. All the arrangements they made for us and their customer service was faultless. We would be more than happy to use them again if/when we return to this part of the world.

We had a group of 15 people fly into San Jose and needed transportation to Arenal, Guanacaste, and back to San Jose. Instead of renting three or four cars, we coordinated an 18 person van through Costa Rican Trails. Our first driver, Eddie, was at the airport to greet us, allowed us to stop for lunch and photos along the... More

Our trip through Costa Rica was an Intrepid family tour and was designed for families. Our guide and driver Sergio was outstanding in his care and attention. He was patient and funny with the children. A kind, flexible and thoughtful man who kept us safe. We learned alot about birds, animals and the environment. Sergio has eyes like a hawk... More

We have had 4 three week stays with this company. They go out of their way to advise, know their own hotels well, and give sound advice. In Panama when we had problems with our hotel they moved us immediately. They have shown us some off tourist places in CostaRica, arranged car hire, transport etc. Great company.

Sergio helped us with details, arranged multiple tours, and transportation from /to the airport, transport to/from tours and to the next city. Everything went like clockwork.

You have to know that about 50% of the time, you may not see the Poas crater. This has nothing to do with the tour operator, and it is a real gamble. So it is better for you to take a tour that gets you to other places if ever you don't see anything at Poas. When I did the... More
