He arrived on time, showed us the crocodiles under the bridge on way out to park, gave us the full history of Costa Rica on ride, and was extremely knowledgable once... More

Our tour agent, Santiago, was most helpful in recommending tours for our first trip to Costa Rica. We selected the Manuel Antonio National Park tour that included the opportunity to see two and three toes sloths, four kinds of monkeys, macaws, toucans, and other wide life. We hit the lottery, because we saw all of these animals and more. None... More

This group of 8 from the Island Princess met our driver and tour guide "R" at the dock, as scheduled. Nice, air conditioned mini van was welcome! First stop was at the "monkey place" where we entertained the white face monkeys, who crawled over our heads to get a bite of banana. It was a hoot! We drove a bit... More

On a recent Panama Canal Cruise assignment for our website, CruiseReportDOTCom, we booked a full-day private tour with Arenas Travel. We selected their 7-In-1 tour and it was an excellent choice. We were met at the end of the gangway of our ship by Geovanna, our local guide. Geovanna, and our driver, Alex, showed us the highlights of the 7-In-1... More

This tour company is everything you could ask for. Great guides, comfortable vehicles and very dependable. We used them to pick us up at the airport, take us over an hour away to our hotel, take us on a half day tour, take us to our cruise ship, pick us up after the cruise and take us back to San...

Best tour of our cruise. Saw lots of the REAL Costa Rica in different towns and villages with plenty of stops and finished with a really good Jungle River cruise seeing dozens of types of birds and other wildlife and a cool encounter with a WILD crocodile or two. Highly recommended.
