It's worth every penny for a safe and worry-free experience! The guides are friendly and very helpful. We learned a lot and it was nice to go at our own pace. They have thought a lot about the customer experience and it shows. Very punctual and the Poas volcano was spectacular and the coffee tour was very educational and the spectacular waterfall.

We did a Panama and Costa Rica tour where in only 10 days we could see the best of each country thanks to the professionalism of the Mr. Jose Luis and his team who at all times were aware of every detail. I do not usually write reviews on any website since I am a traveler who normally organizes freely my trips but it was really a success to have had the services of this company without which we would not have enjoyed and taken advantage of the time so much. Really thanks guys for your great attention.

The six hour tour only took two. The dept of health had closed down the city due to a COVID outbreak. Everything was closed. Can’t really blame the operator. Probably also went faster because there were just the two of us.

It's an undeniable fact that I don't write reviews - ONLY in in case when I'm really fascinated by the experience. And this journey with Costa Rica DMC was one of that very rare occasion. I took a 8 pax group ( mostly friends) to Costa Rica from Europe in 2021 April - despite of the fact of the cancellation/PCR testing risk of covid. I guess I don't have to mention that the preparation took a long long time - many people with different wishes and different concerns. It took me a month to agree with all the terms - during this 30 days more than! 90+ emails were exchanged with the Tour Operator. Irene Azofeifa, our account manager was super patient. She could actually satisfy all our needs ... and changed the itinerary multiple times due to the moving focus ( ppl were dropping out from the team, new were coming in, new flight had to be chosen ...etc.). And on top of all she surprised the team - she was waiting for us outside at the airport to welcome us and to accompany us to our first accommodation :) We even received covid kits from her ( small bag, disinfectant, masks, map, etc..) we appreciated it a lot! So I have a 5+ rate to communication, support and also very quick response time. And about the journey - it was literally the dream we dreamed about. Literally everything was taken place in the very same order and with the same quality we agreed on. We travelled through the whole country in 16D/17N tailor made and personalized joinery - for a very affordable price (this was the very best pick in the market I can assure you about). From San Jose to Tortuguero and then Puerto Viejo, then to Arenal Mountain (rappel) , Monteverde ( zipline) and finally to Tamarindo. And also a BIG thank you goes to Alejandro to our guide and driver who stayed with us for the whole tour. He was super prepared and could always figure our our needs. Beside being a good driver he was a professional guide who knew EVERYTHING about the nature and the wildlife. He almost became our friend :) From all perspective I would give a 5+ to this Company. And for sure if I return ( which is highly probable) I will travel with them again! You should not hesitate to choose this Tour Operator - Definitely and literally the BEST! :)

We travelled in August 2019 with 2 boys aged 9 and 11. Had THE most amazing time! Thank you to Kristina and the team at Costa RIcan Trails. From the moment we landed everything went smoothly. Cannot fault the accommodation, exactly as planned and to meet our requirements. They helped juggle the tours to meet our needs, arranged private transfers so we had time out on our own for the long journeys. Made excellent recommondations and just all in all and fantastic experience. Our tour was: 2 nights Torguguero at Mawamba Lodge 2 nights Puerto Viejo at Azania Bungalows 1 night Boca Tapada at Maquenque Lodge - Treehouse (unbelievable) 2 nights Arenal at Arenal Springs (loved the hot springs at the hotel) 2 nights at Monteverde Lodge & Springs All the recommended tours were amazing. Hikes to see wildlife, white water rafting, horse riding, zip lines just a memorable holiday. We then flew to Florida Keys on the way home for some R&R which was needed after packing it in!!

I was in Costa Rica in January, now I have traveled to Colombia. I have waited several months but I cannot shake how HORRIBLE this tour was. We were supposed to have a tour bus but was instead packed into a sedan. At some point the tour guide was alluding to us going to a nicer restaurant and having us pay for his lunch because the office "did not send the money over" for the included meal. I have been on many tours before and many after but this one was easily the worst. Our tour guide was out taking pictures of his own on every site instead of actually guiding us. What took the cake was when we thought we were going to see a coffee plantation but instead he pulls over on the side of the road to a ditch to show us mounds of dirt that supposedly were growing coffee and he said he couldn't take us to an actual plantation because "The Nicaraguans are harder working and the Costa Rican youth are always on their phones now so it won't be worth it". We paid 100+ dollars EACH for a glorified taxi ride across the country. 0/10 don't recommend
