Ernesto has been so helpful

While we haven’t left on our holiday yet, I’m compelled to say how helpful Ernesto has been in helping to shape the plans for what is sure to be an amazing vacation. I’ve been so impressed with how he has “listened” (through e-mail) to my requests, parameters and ideas and has been able to offer to much information and suggestions to meet my needs. Since experiencing a very frustrating/upsetting flight cancellation, I was even more impressed with his multiple suggestions of how to alter our plans. He has been incredibly supportive and responsive.

Excellent Personalized Service

We had wanted to go to Costa Rica but being non-adventurous type people, we were afraid we wouldn’t really have much to do. Thankfully Ernesto and Caribe tours came through and put together an excellent vacation. We were so comfortable that we took part in some of the eco-tourism that is so prevalent in Costa Rica. Zip lining, hot springs, beautiful rides through the majestic country and fabulous hotels. I’m so glad we chose experts to put this package together. Worth every penny. Thanks guys! Alex & Michael.

“Excellent tour service”

My partner and I used Caribe Fun Tours for multiple trips / excursions in Costa Rica, from airport transfers to shuttles between cities to flights, as well as snorkelling and other expeditions. They even helped us visit the Territorio de Zaguates, San Jose’s amazing dog sanctuary. They took care of everything, and were always on hand to help when we had questions (eg would our flight take off from Bahia Drake given the entire town had a power outage?). I cannot recommend them enough – friendly, flexible and responsive. Special mention to Alex and Ernesto – for always being there. Thanks , Marc and Eoin.

“Met our expectations and beyond”

booked with Ernesto months in advance for our first trip to Costa Rica. My partner and I spent a week and Ernesto had our all activities planned out, guides were ready to go and drivers arrived early or on time. Everyone Ernesto arranged for us was polite, friendly and fun to be with.

We had a couple questions during the trip and our only means of communication was email through the hotel wifi. Ernesto replied quickly and stayed on top of things.

I emailed Ernesto having never been to Costa Rica before. I said a little bit about myself, what my budget was, and…presto…| had a dream 10 days all planned out. And they were patient with me as I changed my mind over and over again! Finally, when services were canceled due to weather/my changes in itinerary, I was promptly refunded.

“Absolutely recommend!”

Many thanks to Ernesto who put together a great itinerary for us in a short time for our first visit to Costa Rica in March.

I found the online chat facility very useful and was impressed by how quickly Ernesto would get back to us. He was very patient with the changes we made, he made sure we were booked in gay friendly hotels, and did his very best for us to have a stress free holiday. We spent one night in San Jose, then on to Manuel Antonio, followed by Monteverde, Arenal, Pacuare river and back for one night in San Jose. A packed 10 days but this is what we wanted and it was amazing.Everything was easy, transport was on time (even early sometime.)

Some of the transit vans could have been a bit more comfortable but we survived them ok! We went on many tours, highlights were the Monteverde Sky Walk, the horse riding to La Fortuna waterfall, seeing the quetzal in the Curi Cancha reserve. Rafting down the Pacuare river was out of this world.Can’t wait to return and explore other areas of CR.
