Overview

It’s a sport fisherman’s paradise offering an excellent opportunity to catch a wide variety of fish. Try your luck during this half-day chartered tour off Isla del Coco National Park.

Morning fishing excursion
Jim_B
, Feb 2020
We had a good time fishing, caught some (3) red snappers and nothing bigger. I am a fisherman and would have liked to set my own line and take full control, as the guides would bait the line and take the rod at times. Enjoyed the whales and dolphins and the information about the area. The guides were friendly. They served pineapple but no water, so perhaps bring a couple of bottles.

Full-Day Monteverde Tour with Hanging Bridges and Reptiles | Mar 2020
The adventure getting up to Monteverde from San Jose has been nothing less then a frustration during our visit to Costa Rica. The first excursion company cancelled on us within 9-hours of departure - that's "Monteverde Cloud Forest and Hanging Bridges Full-Day Tour from San Jose" (by AyE Tours Travel - avoid that excursion!!! This one at least committed to the trip and followed through taking us up there even with just 2 travelers. The drive is long from San Jose and the tour/activity is short. Very short. Turns out to be about an hour hike. Now, Arturo, the guide, he did the best he could really. He was kind, courteous, polite and went out of his way to make our excursion fun. But, the review it's not about how nice a tour guide is to you, not entirely. It's about the value, right? Caue for 2 people, this is almost $300. So we either, missed, skipped or weren't supposed to do the "Biological Preserve" hike. We stopped there. There was confusion with our tickets. The description seems of the tour seems to imply we'll have an "on the ground" nature walk. When we arrived at the Hanging Bridges, there was just as much confusion about our tickets. Eventually we went. The 3 of us. No guide from the facility to tell us about things. Fortunately my wife is a scientist/biology teacher of 25 years. She enjoyed it. But it was over in about an hour. So whoever markets this place Monteverde as a "Cloud Forest" was a brilliant marketing strategy. They had a great aerial photographer on a cloudy day take pictures that implies you are among the clouds - you are not. You are high upon the tree canopies, but not the clouds. The "Reptiles" was a small nature house. No bigger than a McDonald's dining area with "animals" behind the glass. I'm using the generic term, because it wasn't just reptiles (snakes, turtles, lizards), it was frogs too (technically amphibians) and Frogs are nocturnal so most were inactive or not found. But it took all of 15 minutes to look at them. I'm sure we could've taken longer, and that wouldn't have posed a problem for our driver, but more time wouldn't make up for the lack of substance. We should've been able to see so much more of the ecosystems that make Costa Rica famous. Fortunately we have 8 days in Costa Rica and can see a lot of thing, but if your time is short, don't bother with this trip to this area.

San Juanillo beach snorkel marine wildlife tour at Nosara in Guanacaste | Jan 2020
Having been in Costa Rica for 8 days, and used Aviator a couple times (one of them for this activity) but also having engaged with local agencies/suppliers on the spot, I confirm this activity is overpriced and not good value for money. Facts: you are picked-up from your hotel; you are in a car for about 30 minutes before you get to the beach. The beach is really nice, that is for sure, really nice. You snorkel from the beach (no boat involved) for about 40 minutes. Back in the beach you are given some fruit and water and then driven back to the hotel. That’s it. You can take a taxi and do the same for a 10th of the price I paid through the platform. The quality of snorkelling in our case was also bad, mainly because in the morning visibility isn’t great. We didn’t see a thing..... More facts, to make the point even stronger: I have done exactly the same activity, north of Nosara, a couple days later, incl a boat and for almost half the price. The place was better than San Juanillo. I say this with the utmost respect but this activity as it stands is not worth the money they charge through the platform.

Private Transfer from San Jose Airport to Guanacaste Hotels | Jan 2020
Everything worked well, driver was well ontime at our hotel. The car was a small van, with good seats. The total drive took appr. 5hr‘s, also due to an accident. We stopped at a subway for a snack and bathroom break. He could tell us a lot about the country and the vegetation. As we drove thru almost half the country, you get a nice impression of the country. So,yes, very recommendable.

Private transfer from San Jose Airport welcome service to Jaco Beach | Jan 2020
Arthur Gamboa not only was a safe driver, but a tour guide as well. He delivered us to our hotel in Jaco and translated for us to the security guard who was supposed to provide us with our room but he spoke no English and had no idea what to do. It was nighttime an d two women alone. Arthur stayed with us until we were safely in our room. He is my hero as I was so nervous and he made sure we were comfortable.

Nice Day Tour

Full day hiking at Arenal Volcano and hanging brides from San Jose | Sep 2019
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate about his county and fun to be with. We had a good time. We are early to mid 30s guys. The food at the restaurant was good too. The hikes weren't too bad. Probably on the easy side. We went on a Monday and our tour guide was late though. Not his fault and we don't hold it against him and his company. Traffic was bad. Probably 1.5 hour late. We didn't get the free water bottle too but we brought water of our own. Just a heads up to future travelers and the company to keep in mind. Hope this helps.

Amazing Totuguero Experience

Multi-day all inclusive at Tortuguero with a tour at National Park from San Jose | Aug 2019
Be prepared for an amazing experience in Tortuguero! Leave behind you expectations of air conditioning though - the experience at Tortuguero may be a wee bit more rustic for those that are used to luxury accommodations elsewhere in Costa Rica. That said, you cannot find better accommodations or a better experience in Tortuguero than this. We saw nature at it's most intimate level, from an excellent tour of the canals and inlets of the lagoon, to a night hike watching sea turtles nesting, it was a humbling and amazing experience for my whole family. Great value and an unreal, fantastic experience! .

DUE TO DEMONSTRATIONS WE HAD TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE

Full day tour with and watching at Marino Ballena from San José | Jul 2019
The day we had selected to go whale watching there were demonstrations on the road, so the tour operator offered us an alternative. We went to the La Paz park instead. Where one can do a waterfall tour (beautiful), butterfly garden, and an experience with different animals. Although the initiative of the tour organizer to offer us an alternate tour was fine, the reality is that the "guide" they provided us was someone with zero professional training. He did not know the roads very well, He did not know anything about nature or the places / animals / experiences that we were going to visit (or if he knew, he kept it for himself for the entire trip). Although it was a very good traveling companion, it did not really work as a "tour guide", in fact he was taking pictures of everything and sharing it with his friends and family ... as if he were a tourist himself. This, I believe, reduced the credibility and depth of the experience, since one expects the guide to give a lot of information about everything. Anyway, it's not that it was bad. But I think it has a lot of opportunity for improvement.
