My adult children and I went on our first visit to Costa Rica. We wanted to do some excursions with a guide and a friend recommended Jonas at Adventours CR. We arranged for several excursions before leaving the U.S. All of our trips were great. We went zip lining, hiking in a rain forest, and to a Wildlife refuge and a natural hot springs. Jonas was professional, flexible, informative and overall great company. Our excursions included lunch and on one of them dinner also. We loved the restaurants that he chose. We eat a grain-free diet and he worked hard to accommodate our eating needs which we greatly appreciated. We have great memories and lots of pictures of our vacation and look forward to more excursions with Jonas on our next trip to Costa Rica!

A friend and I contacted Jonas before our trip to Costa Rica and expressed interest in seeing as much wildlife as possible and zip-lining. Jonas created 2 tours for us that far exceeded our expectations. We saw numerous birds, butterflies, lizzards, frogs, bats, monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, and more. The zip-lining was amazing (1/2 mile runs at 50mph)! We saw the beauty of the rain forest, an active volcano (Arenal), and the countryside. We sampled traditional (excellect) food and traveled in comfort. Jonas is friendly, knowledgeable, and FUN! He helped to make our trip one that we will never forget. Next trip I plan to bring my kids and tour with Adventours CR again!

We arranged through our hotel, Le Jardin d'Eden (very nice BTW), to tour the caves. Jonas arrived on time in his 4WD SUV and we were very relieved to hear him speak English as some reviewers of the cave tour spoke of guides who didn't speak any English (this was likely in relation to the park guides as we later learned). Jonas was extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable about Costa Rica and particularly the Guanacaste region and the Barra Honda park and caves. Jonas drove like a pro up the roads to the caves, particularly the really steep last bit! We passed a young couple walking up to the caves and we didn't envy them! We learned later from them that they'd rented a car and drove themselves up there but I'd recommend hiring Jonas to take you there. The caves were amazing and we felt very safe the entire time with Jonas and the 2 park guides. Climbing up and down the 70 foot ladder while safety-tethered was a thrill in itself!

Both on the way up to and leaving the caves we had wonderful nature walks with Jonas and Miguel, our park guide. We smelled and tasted various plants and leaves that they taught us about.

Jonas took us to a great little authentic Tico "soda fogon" which means a little restaurant where they cook food over a fire. He asked us whether we wanted to go to a more modern "touristy" place or a smaller more authentic one and we're so glad we chose the latter!!! The meal was the best of our 16-day trip!

Jonas was very accommodating, personable, and it was money well-spent. We couldn't have spent a better last day in C.R. and Jonas was largely responsible for that! We have no hesitation in recommending Jonas and his company, Adventours CR.

I sent inquiries to many companies and went with Jonas because he, too, has small children so I thought he would steer us in the right direction. He made our 2 adventures easy and memorable. We did the Palo Verde tour with Jonas. He was very accommodating with our schedule as my husband got food poisoning. After picking us up at a later time we had a very enjoyable drive to Palo Verde. He is so knowledgeable and answered my countless questions. Our lunch was awesome, one of our best meals. We then hit the river with a boat to ourselves, which was great. He also set up our sunset cruise. As we watched the 20 or so people boarding the lazy lizard, The Manta Ray came and picked up our little family of 4. What a treat to have the boat to ourselves! The captain said he thinks highly of Jonas and was happy to take us out on a private trip. Jonas was so helpful, a pleasure to spend time with, and we look forward to our next trip to CR to experience more adventures as our kids get older. Thank you so much Jonas!

My sister and I were in CR in second week of January 2013. Our trip was arranged by Jonas with Adventours. Jonas and Estella came to pick us up at our hotel in Tamarindo. The ride was about an hour and half long. We talked about many things and got connected with them. We arrived at the office of National Park, from there he took us up half way in the car and parked the car so we did not have to walk too much up hill. From there we did have little long walk and arrived at the cave entrance. We were very afraid as the entrance was not ordinary entrance. You have to harness your self first and go down about 50 feet on straight ladder down. My sister was very much hesitant to go in there but Jonas and Estella made her at very ease and assured her that they were there with her and she was very safe. We went down the cave and did sightseeing of remarkable cave. Coming back up the ladder was also a challenging part but we did it with their help. After the cave, Jonas took us to town to treat us with nice lunch at local restaurant. They dropped us back to our hotel and we were very happy that we made it to the cave and could see the cave. Jonas doesn't do this just for money, this is his passion to welcome his customers and show them what his country has to offer. He has very pleasant personality and gives personalized attention to your need. I would definitely recommend him for your travel needs. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
