I researched several companies planning a trip to Costa Rica for myself, my daughter, and granddaughter (9yr old). I chose Amazing Costa Rica because Tony Garita got it! Three women traveling the first time to Costa Rica wanting to squeeze as much into an 8 night break as possible. We wanted an active trip with worry free transfers and as many activities as possible. Along with Mercedes (who is in country) they put together a perfect, fun, safe and Amazing trip. We were met at the SanJose airport by Mercedes and our driver, Henry. A quick to the domestic terminal and off to Tortuguero Mawaba Lodge (not to be missed if you want to see a remote wildlife area and animals). We then flew to La Fortuna, Mountain Paradise Hotel. We were met by Henry, who is a very special human being. Henry was with us any time we left our hotel taking us to all the activities and transferring us to hotels and airports. Sky Adventure Zip line, fast and high, was heart pounding while safe. Then to Asis, animal rehabilitation facility to learn about and see animals of Costa Rica up close. We then drove to La Parador hotel in Manuel Antonio for white water rafting and catamaran trip. I highly recommend this company for any Costa Rica trip. And I highly recommend Costa Rica! PURA VIDA!!!!

Amazing Costa Rica planned and executed a terrific trip for us. We wanted to see as much of Costa Rica in a short period of time. We wanted to see a lot of natural beauty and the trip delivered just what we wanted. The planning part of the trip went very smoothly. Amazing Costa Rica has a contact in the US that I worked with to figure out the details of the trip. There was some back and forth communication that was necessary as we determined the final itinerary and that went very smoothly. At the end of the process, we received a detailed itinerary with costs for the trip. The communications with Amazing Costa Rica was excellent. Any time that we had questions, they responded quickly to our emails. They contacted with us right before the trip to see if we any an pre-trip questions and made sure that we had the WhatsApp application installed on phones to communicate with them once we arrived in Costa Rica. Once we arrived in Costa Rica, everything went like clockwork. We were picked up at the airport in San Jose by an Amazing Costa Rica employee and dropped off at a hotel. The next morning, a bus showed up right on time and we were on our way to Tortuguera. The entire trip, which involved staying in five different places, went like that. If a driver was going to be five minutes late, we received a WhatsApp messages. When we determined that we wanted to change our plans, Amazing Costa Rica responded quickly to our emails or WhatsApp messages and made last minute changes that involved guides and drivers. Most importantly, Amazing Costa Rica arranged for us to stay in excellent accommodations and set us up with great guides. The Mawamba Lodge in Tortuguera was fantastic. We had a hotel room with a great view of the cloud covered Arenal volcano. In Monteverde, our hotel room had a terrific view of the sun setting over the Gulf of Nicoya and the Pacific Ocean. In Tamarindo, we had another hotel room with a view of the sunset. I highly recommend Amazing Costa Rica. They are well-connected to the Costa Rica tourism industry and they know how to make things work well for their clients.

Our Amazing Costa Rica trip was planned by conversations with Tony here in the USA. He coordinated with Mercedes in San Jose and together they provided the best care we could imagine. Our special needs were lovingly provided for. We were picked up at our hotel for each excursion and for each transfer to the next location. Everyone involved (drivers, guides, boat captains) were so caring and helpful. High points were the Irazu Volcano and Lankaster Gardens, Mawamba Lodge in Tortuguero, which included a private dinner on the Katonga Floating Restaurant, the Selva Verde Lodge with a gorgeous view of the Sarapiqui River and lovely covered walkways by which to enjoy the rainforest even in the rain, the Volcano Lodge in the Arenal with cloudless skies by which to enjoy the view of the volcano and a lovely evening at the Ecotermales hot springs. Then a boat ride to Monteverde and a wonder-filled tour of the Selvatura cloud forest canopy with the delightful 3 K route of rocky stairs and hanging bridges. Our own private guide made this not only possible but delightful as he catered to our every need, keeping us safe and happy. Our last two days at Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort was the perfect way to end this Amazing Costa Rica vacation. Thank you, Tony and Mercedes, for sharing Costa Rica with us in such a wondrous way!!! Bless you and all you do!

Tony helped plan the perfect trip for our family of five. Our trip was 8 days, with 4 at an eco-lodge that was packed with activities including horseback riding, hot springs, ziplining, waterfalls, cooking classes, and more! From there, we had a boat trip on the Tempisque River, where we saw many crocodiles, monkeys, bats, and lizards. Then 4 days at the beach at Playa Carillo where we surfed and played in the warm water. Highly recommend Tony to plan your trip!!!
