Antonio Hidalgo was our agent and he helped us book 2 hotels, daily activities, flights between towns in Costa Rica, and all the transfers. Everything went flawlessly. Highly recommend. We were two guys going on a boys trip and had a blast.

Antonio Hidalgo did good job to planned the great vacation for us ( 4 adults - friends). The combination of attractions we saw was perfect. Just don't recommend Hotel Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort, Tamarindo - not friendly, not clean, not comfortable.
