My family went on a vacation to Guanacaste, Costa Rica for 7 days in October. The second to last day of our vacation we went on a tour with Costa Rica Unique to visit Nicaragua (1 day tour). I was a little skeptical at first because it was another country and it was expensive; we had a family of 6 (including my husband and I, 2 grandmothers, and 2 little children.)

Well to my surprise this was the best part of our trip, and we did a lot of amazing stuff. Jose, our tour guide, took us to see an active volcano, on a private boat tour, visited Granada the historic downtown, see a beautiful lake from a crater, visit, a cigar manufactory, eat lunch in the best restaurant, shop in the local markets and more. I could go on but I don't want to spoil all the fun. In the end, Jose even surprised us with all gifts from Nicaragua! We got home around 9PM and all were completely exhausted.

In terms of transportation, they will drive you to the boarder and you will cross the boarder by foot and then get back into another car on the Nicaragua side. The boarder is like 30 feet long. It was fun getting our passports stamped and seeing the difference as you go between 2 countries. We left a healthy tip because we were so happy on our excursions.

Bring Cameras, panchos, snacks for the adults and kids, change/money, tennis shoes, toilet paper for public bathrooms, hand sanitizers, reading material for the ride (Nicaragua is 3 hours from Guanacaste, Costa Rica).

All I can say is MUCHAS GRACIAS POR GILBERTH, Alejandro and Ernesto. The tour to Arenal, the volcano and hot springs was amazing. Alejandro and Gilberth's knowledge of the area was SO appreciated. Who knew that Costa Rica was the size of West Virginia, but flattened out the size of Texas? Mi amigas and I had a trip of a lifetime. Can't wait to visit again in December 2013.

We were in Costa Rica for 7 days and on the last day we took a tour with Unique Transfer & Tours to Guachipelin and it was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

The staff where very friendly and respectful, the tour was both in English and Spanish.

Overall I would highly recommend anyone to take a tour with Unique Transfer since they have a very organized and friendly service.

While visiting the Playa de Coco area we had planned to use the services of our resort to book tours, etc. On Playa de Hermosa we met Gilberth and changed our plans. He was friendly, sincere, and not just interested in closing the deal. His approach was a breath of fresh air and he almost instantly inspired trust. We took the Arenal tour with Alejandro and Ernesto (and Gilberth). It was wonderful! The food was excellent. Alejandro was an amazing guide with his wealth of knowledge. Ernesto drove us safely and Gilberth patiently answered our questions and shared Costa Rica as we would not have gotten it anywhere else. Thank you so much!

Joe and I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated you and your services while we were in Costa Rica. Never having been their before, we were very impressed with the country, all it has to offer and culture of everyone there! Everyone was so nice. It was a breath of fresh air to have met Mauricio and to have worked with him on planning all our excursions. Typically, tour "salesmen" are overwhelming and that really turns you off from wanting to work with them. But Mauricio wasn't that person. He was so pleasant and a pleasure to talk with. Everyone we were set up with on the tours was wonderful as well. We've already told all of our friends and family we are going back to Costa Rica! And can't wait to do all the excursions again; from Palo Verde to the Mega Combo to surfing in Tamarindo! It was more than we could have asked for our vacation to be.

Thank you Mauricio Monge Duran! It was a pleasure.
Thank you again! And the next time we make it back their, hopefully we can meet up!
