WARNING! Monteverde Experts

The agency Monteverde Experts, in Santa Elena overcharges many of their tours and Ticabus tickets. Do not purchase anything from the man, Alberto Hérnandez.

We bought a round trip Ticabus ticket, San José- Managua, which cost $68 instead of the actual price $52. Instead, if you need to buy the ticket in Santa Elena, go to Costa Rica National bank where they only take a comission of a few dollars, if any.

We also got tricked into buying a tour for $55 instad of the actual price $27.

We also found out that he has done the same thing several times before and there have been many complaints!

Be aware!!

Zoet2015 or anyone else - you mention only monteverde reserve - do you have any thoughts on curri cancha reserve? I had read somewhere that it had more chance of seeing wildlife including quetzals but less beautiful forest. Is this correct? Any other thoughts?
