CostaRicanVacations.com was awesome!

We booked our Costa Rican vacation super last minute: literally two weeks before the busiest time of the year. We contacted five different travel agents, none of whom were able to help. Even CostaRicanVacations initially couldnt find anything for us. We were about to give up. A day later, we got a follow up email from the COO of CostaRicanVacations.com saying the following:

Hola!

Richard Bexon here, Chief Operating Officer for Costa Rican Vacations. I see that you recently let us know that you are no longer interested in a vacation to Costa Rica and I wanted to make sure that the reason that you did not book was not due to the service provided by the team?

If you are still interested in a vacation to Costa Rica please let me know or alternatively we do offer more affordable destinations such as Nicaragua and Panama.

We look forward to seeing you in Costa Rica.

Kind Regards

Richard Bexon
Chief Operating Officer

We responded saying that his company couldnt find anything for us last minute. He responded back saying he would assign us to another agent who might be able to help us. We then got an email from Aidan who proved to be super helpful. He was able to put together an AWESOME itinerary for us which included two hotels, transfers, and a bunch of fun excursions. One of the hotels was the Springs, an amazing 5 star resort in Arenal. We booked immediately.

The trip was seamless from start to finish. I cant speak highly enough about the team at CostaRicanVacations.com. Thank you!!

Our 55th Wedding Celebration Trip

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacatioin in Cosa Rico. You have a beautiful country. Kelly was very patient with us in the planning of our trip, helpful letting us know what to expect, and responded quickly to all our questions. When we had to postpone our trip Kelly was not available, and Lisa steped in to re-arranged everything so that we had the same trip, also with helpful tips, and this was done promptly as well. We felt very well taken care of. The whole two weeks went smoothly. We have recommended you to friends.

This was the best most well planned vacation! I would definately do it all over again!

From beginning to end this was an amazing adventure! The jungle meets the sea is the most complimentary visions Ive ever seen. Each boutique hotel was better than the next and the food at The Falls was 5 star! Ohhh the banana bread!
I cant wait to go back...so, so romantic!

Outstanding!

This is actually the 2nd time I have used Costa Rican Vacations. The first was a couple years back when I planned a trip for my brother's honeymoon. We wanted to send them on an adventure honeymoon and give them the opportunity to see different parts of the country. CRV put together a top notch customized vacation and they absolutely loved it. So we had to go as well! We went with another couple and they said it was the best vacation they have ever been on! We worked with Theresa and she worked with us to get us exactly what we wanted. There was actually a problem with one of the resorts we booked so Theresa upgraded us to a different hotel for no additional charge and it was AMAZING (Lost Iguana in Arenal). There was someone there to meet us at the airport and take us right through immigration which was a plus. All of our drivers were knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. Since we were on an adventure trip we had quite a bit of excursions booked. Well one of my friend's ended up not being able to go on one of the excursions so I called CRV to see if there was anything they could do and they exchanged it for a Hot Stone Massage at the resort (which he loved). CRV actually called in to check how our stay was several times throughout trip. If you are looking for someone to help with your vacation planning (and I normally do all of my own myself) make sure you go with CRV. They are top notch and you won't be disappointed. Pura Vida!

Costa Rican vacations and our representative Matt made it easy for us

If you are looking to go to C.R. butyou don't know what you want to do, nor have ever ben there, then Costa Rica Vacations...this site is who you want to use. We gave our Rep Matt an idea of the tpe of money we were able to spend or wanted to spend and he helped us design a honeymoon that suited my new bride and I. We probably made at least 7 to 10 changes to our potential itinerary over a 2 month period and he was always willing to hep us with this or that to help us design a honeymoon that fit within our budget and what we wanted to do. FYI...we stayed at two wonderful plaes with Matt's recommendations. Hotel Capitan Suizo at Playa Tamarindo on the beach was more than we imagined. Walking out of room 72 - 50 yards from the beach was amazing and then staying at Hotel Kioro at Arenal with a second floor room looking out over the volcano was amazing. If you are thinking about going to Costa Rica and looking for an agency that will help you design a vacation then Costa Rica Vacations is the one to choose.

The best way to see Costa Rica

From beginning to end, with suggestions as to where to go, what to do, onto arranging the trip, Marco was outstanding.
Our trip was fabulous unfortunately interrupted by wife's illness . Even then costa vacations were incredibly helpful with our travel insurance.
When we return , we would only do so through Costa Rica vacations.

Best vacation ever!

I was scared apprehensive about planning a vacation in another country, that is until I found Costa Rican Vacation. They handled everything and answered all my questions before and during the vacation. It made the entire trip so easy and worry free. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Absolutely a wonderful experience!

Five Stars across the board for CR Vacations! My wife and I wanted someplace exotic to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I contacted CR Vacations way back in November 2012 and Robin Sabine took care of everything. She was patient and understanding of the exact vacation we were interested in. She answered all of my questions and addressed any of my concerns. She had great recommendations but was never overbearing in her suggestions. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

We stayed 7 nights (6/29 - 7/6 2013) at the luxurious all inclusive Westin Resort in playa Conchal (Five Stars all on its own) and took one day trip into the heart of CR to visit the Palo Verde National Park & Tempisque River Tour and another to the surfing village of Tamarindo to do some shopping and watch an awesome sunset!

All of the transfers that CR Vacations coordinated were great! They were right on time for pick up, the tour guides and drivers were pleasant and easy to deal with and the excursions were wonderful. Private transfers to and from the airport were perfectly timed. I felt like a VIP when we got off the plane and there was someone holding a sign with my name on it :-)

The only thing left to say is, "We can't wait to go back and CR Vacations will be my first email when the time comes!"

A very fantastic experience from the moment we stepped off the plane til we got home.

From the moment we were greeted off the plane, the experience was the best I have ever had on any vacation. Costarican vacations made our trip very memorable. It was the our 24 th wedding anniversary , and costarican vacations and our resorts went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect ! I will use costarican vacations again.

What I was told would happen, actually did :-)!

Working with Rebecca of Costa Rican Vacations made the trip a dream. Being met at a strange airport by an attractive young lady holding a placard with our name on it, made us feel welcome and a great start for our vacation. The various drivers for the transfers and tours were always on time, had cold water and snacks, were knowledgeable of sites along their routes, courteous and interactive. All the tours were over the top experiences. Hotels were great and we never had a bad meal. We told Rebecca what we wanted to do and the price we could afford and she made it happen. It was one our most stress free vacations and the next time we go to Central America, we will be checking in with Costa Rican Vacations as I know they have other venues as well. Great job.

The Best Vacation I Have Ever Had!!

I have been to a few beautiful places and even out of the country before and Costa Rica was the best vacation I have ever went to. It wouldn't have been the best vacation without the help from Kelly Mullins at Costa Rican Vacations. The previous time I went out of the country it was chaos trying to get from the airline to luggage to your ride to your resort. Not with Costa Rican Vacations!!! They were there to swift us away as soon as we walked off the plane. We didn't have to wait in any lines. Our luggage was unfortunately damaged and our guide took us right to where we needed to do a claim. As soon as the airport fun was over we started our adventure. The driver from the airport to our resort was so knowledgable about the land, history, culture and animals. He stopped at a delicious restaurant to eat as well. Our first 3 nights we stayed at the Manoa Hotel. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS VIEWS!!!! This was my favorite place I have ever been to. It was like having your own little cottage getaway for a fantastic price! While in the Arenal area we went horseback riding to the waterfalls, ziplining and on the Monoa farm tour. Everything was perfect! All of our pick up times were on time, everyone spoke fluent English, I felt 100% safe. I highly recommend the ziplining, it was the scariest, but most adrenaline rushing adventure I have ever done. We spent day 4 traveling from Arenal to Manuel Antonio. We again had a great tour guide with a very comfortable van. He also was very knowledgable about Costa Rica. Once we arrived in Manuel Antonio we stayed at The Falls. It is a little boutique resort that is so relaxing and very affordable. We enjoyed our bartender (Ricardo) the most! Ha On day one he greeted us, asked our names and from then on he never forgot our names. In Manuel Antonio we enjoyed a relaxing cataraman tour and rain forest tour. DO NOT go to The Manuel Antonio National Forest without a guide!! You will not see a thing. Our guide was so amazing that other guides were asking him where things were. That is why Costa Rican Vacations are the best, they get the best of the best!! From start to finish our honeymoon was full of relaxtion, adventure, beautiful scenery, great food, great people, lots of learning of the history and culture, and I was very sad to go!!! My husband and I promised each other we will return, with our kids and hopefully our parents too so that they can experience what we did. Our parents were very worried about us booking online and as soon as I called my mom (from the Kolby phone I bought where my guide showed me where to buy it from) and told her that we were good to go, she was more relaxed. When we do go back to Costa Rica you better believe I will be calling up Costa Rican Vacations and packaging the best vacation ever!!

All fun, no worries.

My husband and I went for our honeymoon. We had a great experience planning and enjoying the trip. The only bad thing I would have to say is I wish we could have been there longer. There was only one segment where the recommended items were not needed at all and we then had to carry them for a tour. However, we still had a great time. We plan on returning for an anniversary!.

AWESOME

We were blown away with our vacation from the moment we got to Costa Rica! The service was impeccable (someone met us before Customs/Passport control and escorted us through the diplomats line!). I would HIGHLY recommend Costa Rican Vacations to anyone.
