On a recent visit to Papagayo we used Guanacaste Viajes & Tours to meet us at the Liberia airport for a transfer to our hotel (Hilton Papagayo Resort) and again to transfer us from the hotel to another one in Liberia near the end of our stay. In both cases the driver met us on time and was very polite and helpful.
During our week stay we took 2 tours with them (Palo Verde and Rincon de la Vieja). Both tours operated perfectly. At Rincon de la Vieja, our guide (Manny) led my wife and me on an outstanding nature walk where we saw some animals, many interesting trees and plants as well as the geothermal activity of the volcano. During the walk Manny pointed out the spice achiote which is used in many Costa Rican dishes. When we mentioned that we would like to buy some to take home, he told us about the best brand to buy, and he arranged for us to stop at a supermarket to buy achiote paste as well as coffee, which is infinitely cheaper in a supermarket than in the tourist shops.
Each tour included a lunch, and both of them were excellent. Typical Tico lunches were served in non-touristy restaurants.
All in all, we were most pleased with the quality of the extremely personal and professional services we received.
