“Great trip thanks to Andy!”

Reviewed May 26, 2013

We were overwhelmed by the amount of information and activities available in Costa Rica. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we contacted Danny to pick us up from the airport and drive us to the JW Marriott. Andy, his counterpart met us at the airport on time, and saw that we got to our hotel and had information on other activities we could do while in Costa Rica. We hired Andy to drive us on two day long excursions. One rafting, and the other a combination of horseback riding and zip lining. They both were wonderful days, Andy told us much about the country, was an excellent driver and made us feel very welcome. He was always on time, stopped if we had a request or needed supplies, and stopped a couple of times to show us interesting sights. We felt as though we had made a good friend by the time he arranged for the trip back to the airport. Highly recommend them for a great experience.

If you want to relax and enjoy your time in Costa Rica, don't rent a car. Hire Danny Jimenez to drive you from place to place -- and you get a tour along the way. We enjoyed each day with Danny and felt like we got to see the truly local places rather than tourist traps. Highly recommend Danny for either a personalized tour or just a transfer from city to city. Email him using his website and he reponds very quickly. His website is costaricadriver.com

The travel agent I used recommended that we rent a car, but after comparing the price of a car with the gas and the insurance I decided to hire a driver. The reviews on here are accurate. Danny is a pleasure to have take you where ever you need to go. I can't tell you how happy we were to have him. It made the trip so much more relaxed to have someone know where he was going and not have to try to find places that have no address. Danny drove us two times during our stay in Costa Rica. During the rides he talked about the country and various other things that made the time go by so quickly. I was just dreading a 5 hour drive, but he made it just fly by. He even stopped along the way for us to see the crocodiles. Danny is a good man, an honest man, and an excellent driver. If you have any reservations at all about driving in Costa Rica do yourself a favor and avoid the hassle and ruining of your vacation over getting lost and going out of your way. Just hire Danny and sit back and relax. Isn't that what vacation is for anyway?
