We arrived in Tamarindo for the week with no plans. Don helped us plan our time and took us on the best excursions - rafting, a fishing trip, and advice on ATV and zip line tours. Don't know how we would have found all of the great things to do without Don's help!

Don managed a group of 14 of us through a great day of zip lining and ATV-ing. He gave the personal touch to our youngest and our oldest family member. His love and knowledge of Costa Rica came through. We would recommend him without any qualification.

Before we left for Costa Rica we were already told that Don Grant would be “our guy”. While walking down a street in Tamarindo, we were approached by a very personable “Denzel Washington” look-alike man. Instantly we were drawn to his smile and of course his laugh. Ironically, this man turned out to be “our guy” Don. With the guidance and accompaniment of Don, our group of thirteen experienced two amazing Costa Rican adventures. The Zip Lining Tour included transportation on a beautiful 20- passenger air conditioned bus, “Welcome” drinks and a horseback ride up to the start of the lines. After zipping over/through the tree tops, we had an exhilarating, heart stopping ride down a 500 metre water slide followed by a delicious Costa Rican lunch and a relaxing soak in the hot springs. A cleansing mud bath and a refreshing dip in the river ended this unforgettable day. The bus ride home was filled with the silence of worn-out, sleepy passengers. ATV-ing, another crowd favourite, took us in and around the town of Flamingo and provided many thrills, monkey sightings, breathtaking ocean views, and a memorable beachfront sunset. The race against darkness had us “flying” down the unlit highway…a great way to end…heaps of laughter and amazing memories were made that afternoon.
Don, from “GET LOST IN COSTA RICA”, far exceeded our expectations with his exceptional service, outgoing personality and “Pura Vida” attitude! For us non-Spanish speaking people, his fluency in English was a huge asset. Don was definitely “our guy” and we would highly encourage/recommend you make him “your guy” as well.

We hired Don for a private day-trip to Buena Vista and ended up at a similar, but more exclusive adventure spot on the same volcano. We were only in Costa Rica for five days but had we stayed longer we would have signed up for more adventures with Don! We couldn't have asked for a more enthusiastic, personable, knowledgable or charismatic guide. His English is impeccable and his personality contagious! Another tour with him will be at the top of our list when we return someday and highly recommend him for any future visitors. Absolutely worth every penny. Pura Vida!

We just met Don walking down the beach in Tamarindo. It was nice to talk to him and not feel pressured into anything. We had a really big group and he was able to accommodate all of us no problem! While on the tour he was always around and had a lot of information to share with all of us about Costa Rica. Can't wait to go back and book more trips with him! He made our excursions and trip unforgettable. Thanks Don
