Matt was walking up the beach at the Hilton Papagayo talking about his company. There are signs all over the place saying that Hilton isn't responsible if you book with an independent operator on the beach. I talked to Matt, found out he is the owner not a booking agent, and his reviews on Trip Advisor are excellent. We put... More

My mom and I booked a snorkel trip with Matt and we were not disappointed! Probably the best decision we made on the whole two week trip. We received his business card from a lady that had been staying at the same resort. Called him right away and set up a date to go snorkeling. Matt picked my mother and... More

We would highly recommend Matt Holmes of Extreme Costa Rica. We were very lucky to find him during our recent trip. Matt is originally from the states so it made it very easy for us to work with him, chartering his boat for two days. Extreme Costa Rica gave us the opportunity to get off the land and on the...

We met Andres and Matt on the beach in front of our hotel (the Hilton Papagayo) and they were friendly without being pushy. We had been looking for a boat excursion and Andres was very amenable. He allowed us to decide what we wanted to do and he made it happen-- for the best price!! He picked us up and... More

Matt is an awesome tour guide, and can give you an interesting perspective on an American living in Costa Rica. We went snorkeling and had fun, albeit a cloudy windy day, so not ideal conditions. I highly recommend Matt as a wonderful genuine guide. Make sure you bring your own fin's unless you have small feet. Jeff Fuller
