Words can not express the level of treatment we received from Amy and her Avispa tour group. I have never written a review on Tripadvisor, but this experience compelled me to do so. As you can see from their already excellent overall rating, they provide a very personal service that can accomodate your schedule and needs. We were in CR Guanacaste in early September with a group of 10+ for a wedding. We booked 3-4 different tours spread between the group and their company delivered on all aspects. As you may have read in other reviews, Amy is originally from the US so there was no communication problems and it was interesting to hear her perspective living in CR for the past few years given our group was visiting from the US as well. The most impressive thing about Avispa Adventures was the little things that they did for our group that arent listed as part of their "services".
A) We were on one of their tours during a 7.6 earthquake so our excursion was cut short due to safety reasons. Not only were we not charged for our excursion, but our driver Chepe took us to a local restaurant to eat while we waited for the chaos at our resort to settle down from the quake. Amy, whos home was damaged during the quake, took time to come out to meet us and make sure we were safe.
B) Another couple in our group missed their departing bus to Nicaragua on our last day and Avispa voluntarily raced them 30min up to their next bus stop so they could get on from there. Little things that arent listed like this.
Contact Avispa Adventures before your trip to CR, they will make sure you are taken care of from your first step in CR to your last step.
