Miguel and Captain Iguana were great. We had a great day, caught 5 Mahi Mahi and found some amazing snorkeling. They were knowledgeable, informative and lots of fun. We've been on many tours and this one was truly outstanding.

We just got back from Santa Teresa with a large group of friends and had a great experience using Tropical Tours Shuttle service to and from the airport. I would highly recommend them as they made the whole process super easy. They take care of all of the ferry tickets and stopped at a restaurant for us on the way as well as a liquor store to stock up for the journey. Everything went smooth and they even upgraded us to a bigger shuttle on the way back which made the ride for our group of 10 much more spacious. Would definitely use them again!

Miguel is one of the best tour guides on the whole Nicoya Peninsula. He is a true native local who knows all the best spots whether its Surfing, Fishing, Horseback riding or snorkeling. Aside from the excellent adventures he provides, Costa Rican tropical tours always provides by far the most genuine and friendly staff. These guys know how much what your doing means to you and they are the perfect facilitators for your experience. I book many family vacations and retreats for groups visiting the area and I always choose Costa Rican Tropical Tours for their reliability, knowledge and friendliness. Gracias Mincho, pura vida!

Our main guide with Costa Rican Tropical was very friendly, knowledgeable, and considerate. if you are visiting the Malpais or Santa Teresa region I would absolutely recommend you book a tour or tours with them. Miguel, who speaks excellent English, made our boating and horseback trips so much fun. We had full confidence in him quickly, and the same with the other helping guides with him (two guides for both the horse and boat trips). That made us feel comfortable, even when in the middle of a jungle/ranch area or 4 km out to sea. Miguel was very sensitive to the lack of experience my wife (we were on a honeymoon) in these environments, and I greatly appreciated his willingness to walk her through the basics of horseback riding, fishing, and snorkeling with a calm patience. He and the other guides were genuinely excited and matched our enthusiasm/awe when pulling in a big fish or reaching a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the ocean on horseback. I also liked how he would occasionally film portions of our trips with his GoPro, and that he was willing to share the files quickly. He's got a good eye for documenting special moments. I get the feeling that if we were staying around longer, or just lived there in general, we'd be good friends, and he'd be an all around excellent person to know. Do yourself a favor and reach out - you'll be very glad you did!
