Our cruise ship arrived in Puntarenas in early September. We had booked a tour with another company but when we got to the end of the pier, there was nobody there to greet us. Ricky saw us, hot and frustrated, and came over to see what the problem was. When we told him we had booked a tour but the company wasn't there to meet us, he called the owner of the tour company on his cell phone and let me speak to the owner. Apparently, the company failed to schedule us---a slight slip-up! But the owner apologized and organized a driver and guide almost immediately. We'd like to thank Ricky for his kindness in helping us out. He could have just turned away and tried to hustle up business among the other passengers looking to hire guides. But instead, he took the time to help out strangers. Ricky is terrific and he speaks perfect English. I wish him much success in his business!!!!

Ricky Ricardo runs a reliable and fair-priced tour. You can count on getting personalized service, security, and most of all a unique experience!

We support local operators rather than cruise ship vendors. The money that comes to locals helps not only the original vendor but all the support and suppliers.

My wife and I highly recommend Ricky Ricardo's friendly and knowledgeable guide service. He will show you exotic birds, monkeys in trees, and acquaint you with some big lizards! Next time you or your family and friends need a friend in Costa Rica, get in touch with Ricky.

Our cruise ship stopped in Puntarenas Costa Rica and we had a group of 14 that booked a private tour with Ricky Ricardo tours. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! We found out later that we did so much more on our tour than people who booked tours through the cruise ship. Ricky met us at the end of the dock and then we went on a short drive to visit the white faced monkeys. What fun this was as the we were able to feed the monkeys, get pictures taken with them and had a great time. Then a short drive to a small farm where they raised different herbs and plants where we learned about how the local people use these plants to heal themselves. We also had a wonderful drink made from sugar cane that we were able to crush ourselves on a machine. Then it was off to the river and see the crocodiles! Not only were we only a few feet from them, but some in the group got to touch them as well. We then drove to the rainforest (make sure to brink a poncho or umbrella....it is the rainforest of course) and had a great time on the paths and suspension bridges. Then a fantastic meal at a local restaurant right on the beach. We ended the day with a visit to some local craftsman who make great woodworking crafts..What a unbelievable day! Ricky is a local and knows just about everything about Costa Rica. He is passionate about his country and enjoys showing it off. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who stops in Puntarenas.

We were in Costa Rica and not able to swim at our hotel (which we did not know before we went). We decided to sail to Tortuga Island and contacted Ricky Ricardo Tours. He does have that particular tour but arranged for us to be on the boat the next day and personally came and picked us up at our hotel. He introduced us to the staff on the boat and then on the way home he drove us through the town and showed us the sights and gave us some history. He did this for less cost than the normal price for booking the Tortuga Island Tour with the companies that do book it! He is knowledgeable, friendly, speaks perfect English, and simply wants to ensure you get your value and have a great day. Ricky, thanks for introducing us to Freddie - he took exceptional care of us and is a delightful young man. Bruce and Sandi
