When we were in Costa Rica last February Don Grant was our tour guide for the week. He is very knowledgeable guide, fluent in English and Spanish, and super fun in general. I felt very comfortable with him the whole time, he is a joy. I suggested him to some friends who went in May and they also had great things to say about Don. I know he caters to large groups and he would take really good care of your family. www.getlostincostarica.com

We used Caravan 01/08 and thought it was one of the top 3 tours we have ever done. It was also a very good value. Stayed in really nice places, saw just about everything there was to see. The Guide was soooo proud of his country & eager to share. He spoke very good English!

We traveled Costa Rica last year and used Costaricadriver Danny Jimenez. Using the above name you can find him on Facebook or he is mentioned multiple times on tripadvisor as being the best. We are a family of 11 and he couldn't have provided us with any better memories. The trip of a life time and we owe it to Danny.

I recently went to Costa Rica and had the pleasure of having Don Grant as my private tour guide. www.getlostincostarica.com He was amazing, professional, courtious, knowledgeable, every thing a tour guide should be as well as affordable. He can accomodate any size tour and take you anywhere you want to go. He will make your trip custom to suit your needs. We chose to ATV, Horseback ride, Hot Springs, Mudbaths, Surf, Shop, Watch the Sun Set. It was all AMAZING!!!

Many good guides and local companies that can help you planning your vacation... but now days you can do a lot of your planning directly with hotels , tour operators...

Good idea is find a tour that you like and ask for quotes...incredible some times the difference on prices...for xmas you better hurry up...looking for 8 rooms in peak season is not easy some times...of course like anything in life it is possible..

For transporation you may need a Toyota Coaster good for 25 people...enough room...without using jum seats...great a-c...big enough diesel engine...enough room to keep all the luggage inside the bus...most of them with a mic fro the guide!

Important to check Insurance...bus model...year...and of course a driver with a C2 driver license, no C2...is not a legal driver to drive a van in Costa Rica..that simple...

roadadvisor

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!
