Spotted Roberto under a tree on the beach with his trip adviser banner. Had a chat and seemed a nice guy so checked him out on trip adviser. All looked good so I booked all my trips with him. Haggled a deal and got 10% off. Although it's his own company, I think he is more of a broker. He does own a couple of fishing boats.
Did a 5hr a tv tour, 2 hr jet ski safari, half day fishing charter, white water rafting and zip line with eco park. Thoroughly enjoyed them all.
Would have have loved to have done some of the jungle trips but this 63 yr old body was a bit beat up by this time!
Far better prices than the tour companies and tailored to your needs.
Highly recommended.
Pura vida

My best friend and myself went to Costa Rica March 17-24 2018. We stayed at the Riu and as I am a huge planner I wanted our days planned out ahead of time so we were sure we would get to do all of the excursions we wanted. Our first excursion was a sunset cruise which was amazing. We were able to layout on the top deck of the boat and the waiter brought as many drinks as we wanted right to us. We stopped and there was an option to snorkel however we just explored the beach. We also booked a tour to a waterfall, rafting down river, sloth sanctuary, volcano tour and mud bath and my FAVORITE (well besides holding the sloth) was day trip to Nicaragua. We felt perfectly safe while we were there. We went to Lake Nicaragua, to an active volcano to the top, the Grenada (could have spend a whole day here) and lastly on a boat tour to see the famous islets. We felt completely safe the whole time we were there. Booking with Roberto online was easy, secure and much more affordable than the commercial tour companies. Why wouldn't you want to help their local economy and give your business to local families instead of large corporations. DO NOT listed to the companies in the hotel lobby, these guys are the real deal! We consider them friends now. We even met Roberto's niece when his brother came to pick us up from Nicaraguan border. This is truly family run and makes for a spectacular trip!

Roberto arranged a wonderful day trip to a mountain resort with a van, driver (Hugo) and a fantastic guide (Gray). 1 1/2 hour drive, welcome drink, horse back riding, waterfall and extreme zip lining. Finished up with volcanic hot baths. Absolutely worth it. Very professional and a full day of activities.

Saw the trip advisor flag on the beach of the Riu Guanacaste...looked them up..booked!!

It was so easy... four of us had our own van for the day..our excellent driver/tour guide Johnny was beyond amazing....we asked a million questions which he happily answered and thanked us for taking an interest in his culture/life!!.
He stopped so many times for us to get out and look at stuff...showed us local attractions...stopped for us to buy beer/snacks..translated for us..we loved our day with him!! Roberto give that man a raise!!!

Our tour included the sloth house/mud bath/volcano crater/waterfall/coffee tasting...added with our own blend of...
Stopping to buy/taste local baking....pineapple in a bag to go from a stand just out of the waterfall...tasting green cashews...we should have stopped and got a watermelon from a local stand too..what a great experience and the memories of that day will last a life time!!
