This is what I did for Christmas Day and it certainly didn't disappoint! Which ever tour you take with this company, I can't recommend Misa enough and get in quick because he is threatening to retire in the next few years. This guy has more energy, enthusiasm, passion and knowledge for the tour than any other guide I encountered on... More

In December 2016 we took 2 tours with Expediciones Tropicales -- 1) Irazu Volcano, Orosi Valley and Lankester Gardens (day tour), 2) Poas Volcano and Doka Estates (half-day tour). Our guides were Jorge and Martin respectively. The guides are very friendly and competent, overall both tours were worthwhile to us -- we did see the scheduled main attractions. However, I... More

The tour started with a pick-up from our hotel at 7a - We traveled to pick-up a few other passengers before heading to breakfast. The breakfast in my opinion was nasty - the restaurant did not appear clean - the ceiling fans had a ton on dust on them and the floors did not appear clean. The served plantains, rice/black...

The tour and tour operator (Eric) was great, but I wouldn't recommend using this company as I won't in the future. They charged me wrong and I had to pay three times for the same tour while waiting for refunds for their mistake. I highly recommend going elsewhere because if you have an issue they are unhelpful.

If you are truely interested in walking around the downtown área of San Jose and discovering the real native treasures the city offer, but you are timid, or have a poor sense of direction. Perhaps you just like getting a lay of the land in a new environment. This tour is perfect for that. Jorgen, from Intrepid Adventure tours, is... More

My husband and I have traveled so many times with Expediciones Tropicales, this is a serious and excellent agency. Tours are so nice, prices are according with the tour offer, they have so many "one day tours" so, you can visit nice places in Costa Rica in only one day and make the best use of your time. They are... More

Expeditionales Tropicales is a great company with personal service. I am in Costa Rica this week with dental patients from NC Medical Travel, and planning our group trip for next week! There are a lot of options, but you will need to know the level of mobility necessary since some of the tours are demanding on those with bad hips... More
