Booked the Monteverde Cloud Forest guided tour. There was a mixup and the pickup never arrived. Desafio immediately called another taxi though, at which point it was an hour late. The annoying part is there’s no emergency number to call, so when the pickup didn’t come no one was able to help immediately. Good thing the guide Rodrigo had a direct line to someone in their team, who was able to send another taxi driver to pick me up. They were very apologetic about it & promised to investigate. Meanwhile guide Rodrigo is extremely knowledgeable. It is a shame that I was late + paired with a family that only spoke Spanish (I don’t) and therefore most info on the tour was in Spanish. Normally they do either all English or all Spanish tours, somehow there was a miscommunication.

Desafio was extremely easy to work with, very responsive and very reasonable about arrangements. Activities were top notch including transfers to and from la Fortuna and Monteverde. I would highly recommend them— we have a large family and they made everything easy— Horseback to Monteverde was a highlight of our trip (I don’t see why you’d skip a horseback to Monteverde, it was so much fun w/ boat ride too and taxi. The horses were calm and well trained.... my family of 5 w/ young kids 8-11, loved it— wear comfortable pants not shorts! Scenery was great and the added elements made it quite an adventure! Nixon, our guide, was attentive and fun to ride with.... he was locked in to ensure our safety and that we had a great trip. Our luggage followed us along safely to our destination.

My sister and I had such a wonderful trip! It was a great mix of planned activities and free time, and everything went so smoothly. Angelica was super supportive and organized during the whole planning process too. Thank you!

Instead of renting a car, we used Desafio for transport between three different places in Costa Rica. They are an excellent service. On time, great drivers, good rates. We will use their services again!
