Our prices are below the published prices of the services, since we get our commission from the service providers themselves, we can receive compensation for our services and at the same time save you some money!  In addition to having access to all the best promotions direct from each provider, we negotiate special rates with them as well and we pass those savings along to you.  We always strive to maximize the Price/Quality, we have actually talked customers out of purchasing an expensive travel option for an equal quality less expensive one.  The company is locally owned and operated. Our costs are closely followed so we do not incur in any unnecessary spending, so our prices are not affected.



"This has been one of the best vacations I have been on, and I go on trips this exotic at least three or four times a year. I wouldn't change a thing. I loved everything with it and the itinerary could not have been better with all our activities. The guide and bus driver were great. Thanks a lot!

Dear Marcela,

This is Shiko and Maiko, do you remember?
Both of us have arrived in the place where we live (Shiko in Chicago
and Maiko in Paris. Yes, since we live separately, the days in Costa
Rica was one of the precious opportunities of the date for us).

Thank you so much for your help during our stay in Costa Rica.

Thanks to you, we could have a really good time there.
It was extremely beautiful. Rafting was unforgettably great. We might start rafting in future.  (But since we have already experienced the Pacuare which is one of the best 5 in the world, can we still enjoy other rivers in the world??).

Once again, we really appreciate your job, your passion, and your

Bon travail and see you again!
(If you have a chance to come to Japan, or Paris or Chicago,
let us know!)

Shiko and Maiko

Dear Marcela,

John and I want to thank you so much for your role in making our trip to Costa Rica such a wonderful and memorable vacation. We loved everything about your beautiful country, and we are already thinking about our next visit. We really appreciate your kindness and hard work to have our itinerary so carefully and perfectly planned, including a lot of last minute changes. It will be our pleasure to recommend your services to our family and friends, all of whom we are encouraging to plan a trip to Costa Rica in the near future.

Thanks again,
Carol Bibb

Dear Frank,

Thank you so much for arranging our travels for us. We had a wonderful time and loved every bit of our experience in Costa Rica.
We were so pleased with your service beforehand and even while we there it was nice to get confirmations for pick-up times, etc.

All the hotels were nice and everything went well. We especially enjoyed the Don Juan Coffee Tour, and our guides on the biking tour were excellent. We were able to see the top of the volcano the first day, and we saw lots of monkeys in Monteverde and Manuel Antonio too!
Here is a photo of us on the oxcart at the coffee tour.

Thanks again!
