I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company. Honestly, Dervin (the owner of the company) and his group of drivers and tour guides were the best part about our trip to Costa Rica. They were very
knowledgeable about the area, and very professional, but also super friendly and fun. They all went out of their way to make sure that we were taken care of , safe, and that we were happy with our experiences.
I will absolutely use Yellowfin every time I visit Costa Rica.
Thank you !!

Contact Dervin at Yellowfin Sportfishing if you are in the Playa Flamingo area of Costa Rica. He will take care of everything for you. His English is EXCELLENT. He can help you plan all your excursions while in or around Playa Flamingo near Liberia, Costa Rica. He is honest, extremely friendly, and clearly respected by the folks in CR who want to make your vacation a great one. He will even arrange to have you picked up at the airport for a much better price than the regular taxis. Not sure what you want to do while there? Maybe ziplining, hiking, horse back riding, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving? Where to eat? Contact Dervin through Yellowfin. You will be happy you did. He will talk you through everything and will not push you to do anything you do not want to do. He responds to email and answers his phone!

From the moment we were picked up at the airport by Greivin, and then taken to lunch and a grocery store before dropping us off at our home rental, we knew we were in good hands. Months before our trip, I communicated by email with Dervin and had our entire trip planned with his help. We will go back again and again, and ALWAYS will use Dervin and his company to take care of us.

Thank you Dervin, Greivin, Pepe, Anna and the rest of you for working so hard to give us a wonderful vacation in your beautiful country!

My wife, two young teenagers and myself met with Dervin the first day we arrived in Playa Flamingo. We explained to him that viewing wildlife eg. sea turtles, birds, and reptiles was our major priority during our two week stay. We asked the locals if they knew of him, and everyone said he has the most connections in the area, and not to worry he is a top notch operator.
Dervin and Greivin did everything possible to ensure we saw Macaws, Tucans, Mott Motts and sea turtles. The experience was overwhelming for our daughter that loves sea turtles when he gave us an unexpected once in a life time call, stating that the Olive Ridley turles had come ashore to lay their eggs by the thousands and could only be encountered for a few days during the dry season. What an exciting experience !
On our excursions with Yellowfin we determined that Dervin is extremely knowledgeable about the wild life in Costa Rica. Any questions that we had for him in regards to the wildlife that we encountered was answered with enthusiasm and great passion.
We very much enjoyed the great cultural encounter that he provided us with during our stay. Having the opportunity to spend our vacation with Dervin and his family was something our family will cherish forever.
Pura Vita!!!
Chow, Dervin, Anna, Daniel, Allan, Catillina and Greivin :)

Dervin, Greivin and Pepe took great care of our family. Our first tour was a multi-aged family group of eleven with various needs. We went to Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Some zip-lined and some did the canopy walk. Some rode the tractor to the mud bath and some rode horses. We felt very well cared for and it was a wonderful day of zip-lining, water slide, horseback riding and lunch. The coach was roomy and comfortable. "G" was knowledgable and friendly. He made sure we didn't get stuck in bottlenecks or crowds. He gave us wonderful advice and suggestions for other activities. We were even able to stop for a few needed groceries on the way home. It was a lovely day for all.

The second tour day was our family of four going to Palo Verde National Park for the Boat Tour with a drop off near the Liberia airport. "G" worked miracles to get all of our luggage in the car and off we went. After a lovely lunch at a farm we went for an boat ride and saw lots of wildlife. Greivin was fun to tour with and on the way out of the park we stopped and watched nesting Red and Blue Macaws up close. It was a memorable way to end our tour. Our daughter forgot her game console in the vehicle and Dervin was very prompt and helpful in getting it back to us. Our tours were planned to meet our needs and were competitively priced. We will definitely use them again. Great company!
