“Wonderful Service”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

My boyfriend and I spent 5 days at the RIU Guanacaste. Before leaving for our trip, we were in contact with Jose to set up an airport transfer from Liberia to RIU. Our flight was delayed, but when we landed, our ride was there waiting for us and took us right to our destination. We then met up with Erick on the beach to set up an excursion. The price was much less than booking through the hotel. Our group was small and we were treated extremely well. I would highly recommend booking excursion and airport transfers through Costa Rica Best Tours! Look for the guys in pink!

“Definitely the best!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

I would give them 10 stars, not 5! We booked several tours with Jose, and all of them were fantastic and interesting. Jose was very caring and attentive to details to make us feel wonderful. While getting to our tour destinations, he provided a lot of interesting information about local life, nature, volcanos, very knowledgable - a real tour guide , the one you wish would be with you on a trips. He also advised about better places to visit in July, where you can see more wild life. If you are planning to book tours in Costa Rica- you don't need to look for someone else! Most trusted ! And we will recommend Jose to all our friends who will be going to CR for vacation!
Best regards to you, Jose!

“Made our trip!!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

My husband and I stayed several days at the RIU Guanacaste and our last day at Tabacon Resort. Jose approached us on the beach at the RIU and we opted to take the ATV tour with the monkey zoo tour. It was just great! Great location and we were even taken to two secluded beaches and given extra time !! At the Monkey zoo, you are allowed to hold and feed the howlers .. Awesome experience! After enjoying our tour so much, we discussed customizing our own transport/tour to Tabacon Resort(near Arenal) which is approximately three to four hours away! We chose them for this simply because of their service and are glad we did! For the price quoted(much less than the RIU wanted just for transport, Eric was our private tour guide! On our way to Tabacon, we stopped at several locations..llano de Cortes (waterfalls) for a swim, ate some local food in Lajas, got a great view of the volcano where we snapped a ton of pictures and learned a ton of things about the country.. He picked us up promptly the next morning and drove us to Liberia Airport, once again before not making a couple of stops. If
You are traveling to Costa Rica, don't be scared of trying this group (located on the beach at the RIU) despite the scary stories the hotel provides .. They were amazing !!

“The best tours at the best prices!”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We booked several tours with Jose and Erick. They were all fantastic! The tour guides were more than helpful they became part of our group. Crazy Alex took us to a great restaurant in CoCo beach which became our favorite restaurant. We had such a good time on all of our tours. On our last tour Erick upgraded us on zip lining to the Extreme for no charge just because we had booked several with them. Jose and Erick even customized some tours for us and they were still 20% cheaper than the hotel tours. I highly recommend Jose and Erick the guys in the Pink shirts on the Beach at RIU Guanacaste!

“Genuinously nice guys with excellent customer service”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We went to costa rica for the first this past week. We were told at the front desk of our hotel (hotel RIU- Gunacaste) not to trust the guys selling tours on the beach because they would take our money and not show up. This couldn't have been anymore inaccurate. The first guy we met when we went onto the beach on the day of our arrival was Jose, and boy was we glad we did. He is not only a great and trust worthy travel agent but a genuine person as well. He even went as far to make sure to approach us when one of our friends who was pregnant picked up a coconut to notify her not to drink from it because it could maybe cause some harm to her baby. We booked two excursions through Jose and both turned out perfectly. Three of us did the deep sea fishing tour and he even got us a bigger boat than what we paid for. Me and my wife did the all day combo tour (zip lining, horse back riding, water slide, mud bath, waterfall hike, and hot springs) and were very pleased with it as well. Also if you do the combo tour, ask if you can get Juan Carlos to be your guide for the day. He will stick with you the entire time and make sure you feel at ease and enjoy your tour to the fullest. I would go as far to say Jose is one of the best guys you could ever meet and I wish him all the best in life.....DEFINITELY CAN BE TRUSTED!!!!!!!
