“Definitely use Cuchi”
Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

I recently used Cuchi to transport myself and my two daughters from San Jose to Arenal, Tamarindo, Manuel Antonio and San Geraldo de Dota. Jorge and Luis are very enthusatic and knowledgeable about Costa Rica. They took us to places of interest on the way to our destinations. Both were very willing to stop if we had special requests. Luis spent all day travelling from his base in Jaco to Tamarindo then onwards to Manuel Antonio, and volunteered to stop at a store so we could buy groceries even though it was late and he still had to drive home to Jaco. Jorge and Luis are very professional. I will definitely use Cuchi if I am fortunate enough to return to Costa Rica

“Great Tour Guides”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. Jorge, Luis and Geraldo from Cucchi Tours helped to make our trip enjoyable. Jorge and Luis picked us up at the airport and immediately made us feel welcomed to Costa Rico. We later enjoyed their company on trips to Manuel Antonio, Arenel and Monte Verde. Jorge was even kind enough to arrange a reservation for us to go zip lining at Rainforest Tranopy Tours even though this was not an attraction offered through Cucchi Tours. On several occasions we ran into Jorge and Luis in Jaco and they always stopped to see if we needed a ride back to our hotel. We knew from previous reviews that Jorge would be a lot of fun but we were pleasantly surprised to find that he was also a kind and considerate man who was very patient with two active seniors. By the time Jorge and Luis took us back to the airport we felt that we were leaving friends in Costa Rica.

“Well worth a call!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Myself, my husband and my best friend all traveled to Costa Rica together in October 2012 for the very first time. Jorge and Luis picked us up from the airport, and immediately we felt relaxed.

We made stops along the way to Jaco including food/beer/rum pick ups, and a fruit stand. Jorge told us about the land, the people, the food - everything we wanted to know, he had an answer!

He arranged our zip lining tour for us through another company (highly recommend), and our Tortuga Island tour (not recommended).

Jorge and Luis personally took us to Manual Antonio National Park, a waterfall tour, and Arenal volcano and they were absolutely fabulous. All of us would highly recommend doing all three of these tours with Cuchi, but our absolute favourite had to be the waterfall tour - can you imagine anything more amazing than drinking rum and cokes under a waterfall, with fresh lemon picked off a nearby tree?

Jorge even arranged for us to be picked up after dinner at a restaurant and driven to a bar, and then back to our condo at the end of the night. We had a worry free night out!

At the end of our trip, Luis and Jorge were prompt first thing in the morning to take us back to the airport.

Jorge, Luis (and other Luis) - thank you so much for making our adventure so memorable. We'll be back!

-Heather & Rob

“Luis is the best”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Luis shuttled us from Jaco to Manuel Antonio National Park (he also arranged a guide for us), and drove us from Jaco to San Jose. Great guy, don't hesitate to call him.
