“fun trip but like a conveyer belt experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Hi, I booked this as it had such good reviews on trip advisor but was quite disappointed with the actual day. I had booked to go with ciro as he had the best reviews from people but ended up with Miguel. This did not turn out as good as some people had mainly because his girlfriend came on the trip and he was more occupied with her than his clients. This isn't to say he was bad its just that we got nothing from him except where to go and instructions, some others had said how out of their way the guides go to explain the local countryside etc. The tour itself was fun but was a conveyer belt from one adventure to the next. we did zip lining, then waited and headed to rappeling, then horse riding, it just seemed a bit like they were trying to get you through as much as possible, such as the rock climbin, they pulled you up by the rope rathe rthan let you have a go at climbing the rock, which defeats the point of it really. The mud bath was a stone container with some mud in it which im not sure was natural or not. In summary I would say it offers a good rnage of activities but dont expect anything as good as the reviews and you wont be disappointed.

“Great guys! We used for rides to/from the airport.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We found Go Adventures on TripAdvisor while looking for an alternative ride to/from Liberia airport than the $140 shuttle our hotel recommended. Despite calling Go Adventures the day before we were set to arrive, Ciro answered right away and we were all set. Enrique was waiting for us at the airport and drove us to the JW Marriot Guancaste in a lovely new van. He chatted with us (my boyfriend and I) the entire way telling us about Costa Rica, our hotel complex, food recommendations and himself. We wanted to try our Spanish and while he spoke excellent English, he humored us by talking slowww Spanish and helping with words and local phrases. He stopped at a local store on the way so we could buy beer and snacks. We liked him so much we requested he pick us up for our return trip to the airport, at 4:30am. Again, we waited until the last minute but once again Ciro accommodated us. We didn't do any adventure tours but if we did I DEFINITELY would have gone with Go Adventures. A great company with professional staff and new equipment, and cheaper than the others!

“Please use Ciro and his guys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

These guys are professional and courteous. Ciro is very well spoken in english and is an all around nice guy. He makes you feel very special And takes very good care of you. We did horseback riding, white water rafting had lunch and then relaxed in the spa with a volcano mud bath and then into a hot spring to relax. We have done other tours and by far this was the best. Don't hesitate to use them. Thanks Ciro for our great day. Joe & Sonya

“Lots of choices, very helpful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Go Adventures had many choices of things to do while in Tamarindo. Most of their people spoke enough English to help you understand and get what you wanted. They explained the different trips and gave their personal experiences. They acurrately described each trip. We did the zip lining, snorkeling, and deep sea fishing trips. Enjoyed all of them very much. Miguel was super helpful and even cooked our catch for us. I would recommend using them for all of your needs.

“LOVE CIRO AND HIS TEAM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My friend and I did the combo tour where it was a full day with lunch! They had the best customer service, they were fun, it was a great price for all that we did and it was sooooooooooooooooooo worth it! I went last July and it was hands down a great tour company! If and when I go back I will definitely come to them! They were they best! Read the reviews like me if you want, that is how we chose them, but they are hands down the best! Just do it and book now!
