My husband and I can't thank you enough for everything you did to help with our honeymoon. We had the most wonderful time and completely fell in love with the country and the people. All of the locations that you booked for us were wonderful. My favorite location was the Xandari! We hiked to the waterfalls on the property, took advantage of both pools, spent some time at the spa and thoroughly enjoyed our villa. We truly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go again. I should be contacting you within a year to schedule our next trip down. Thanks again. Your trip really exceeded all of our expectations!
Stephanie M.

Gina, I can't thank you enough for everything. You really have gone above and beyond what I expected out of a travel agent. You're the first agent I've ever used and most assuredly will be using you again in the future.
Stephanie B.

We loved the Hotel Grano de Oro and the restaurant. It made us feel like it was Christmas for the first time. The food was great and the service wonderful. Armando was right on time and very nice. I felt like I was in San Fransisco at that hotel cool weather and the Victorian architecture and furnishings of the restaurant. Los Suenos was nice too. Restaurants - the ones we ate in at Los Suenos were good. The Nuevo Latino restaurant we ate in for Christmas Eve was especially nice. We also ate at La Vista for lunch a couple of times and the Italian restaurant on the property. The food was good there as well. Everyone kept thanking me for the nice places we stayed in and the wonderful restaurants I kept telling them that it was Gina who picked them and you should get the credit. Thanks so much for all you did. You went above and beyond and I will keep recommending you to people we tell about Costa Rica. A big thank you to you for everything.

Jeff G.

Hi Gina! We are back to reality but we are ready to go back NOW! Everything was fabulous and we can't thank you enough for making this vacation so easy and unforgettable! We loved Costa Rica and the people and we want to go back and see everything that we missed. All of your recommendations were great and the Pacaure Lodge and rafting excursion was an incredible adventure! The Hotel Xandari has the most spectacular accommodations and the grounds are massive and beautiful! The food at the restaurant was amazing! Armando and Jonathan made our traveling from destinations very smooth and comfortable! I was amazed how precise you were on the traveling times of our itinerary! You did a fabulous job and we are very grateful to you for all of the time you took to accommodate us in such a short period of time. We will be recommending your services to all our friends and family!
Judy and Tom L.

We loved the Tabacon Resort and the Babaloo Inn! David and Faye are wonderful hosts and have done a great job with the Babaloo Inn. They were also wonderful in recommending things to do and places to eat. The white water rafting and zip-line tours were great! Everything worked well with the rental car too! They even came and fixed a flat tire! Thanks for arranging everything for me and my family. I am passing your name on!!!
Jeff A.

The trip was great! The Hotel San Gildar was a neat hotel and very convenient to my sister's residence. They have a pretty courtyard and area where they serve breakfast. We REALLY enjoyed the Babaloo Inn! Faye and David were fantastic! It's a beautiful place and Faye and David make it extra special. They couldn't have been more helpful and the tour they arranged for the park was excellent. We woke up to howler monkeys every morning which was so fun. Interbus was on time and worked well. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to see Costa Rica and meet the Costa Rican people.
Sandy C.

Gina, thank you again for all your help with planning our trip to Costa Rica. It was amazing and everything worked out very well.  The people were great, food was amazing, hotels were perfect and the land was unbelievable. We can't wait to go back!
Scott and Sara

The trip was so fantastic that we are going to do it again next Spring Break! The Hotel Arenal Kioro was over the top luxurious and the Hotel Cala Luna was spectacular! If anyone has ever driven on a highway or in New York City then they should not worry about driving in Costa Rica.
Judy H.

We had a great time all around and we will be recommending your services to a number of people who are waiting for a report on our trip. The Condo at Los Suenos was great! The fishing was fabulous! We caught a total of eight Sailfish. Captains Whitey, Patrick and Franciso showed us a great time.
Jay P.

We are sooooooo happy and truly appreciate your handling our trip! It was awesome! Armando was such a great driver and a wonderful person too!
Jackie C.

We had a great trip!  Armando was so good to us and we really enjoyed him.  He was always accommodating and prompt.  The Highlights Tour of Costa Rica was really great and the Hotel Barcelo San Jose Palacio was much nicer than I was expecting.  Thanks for everything!
Linda H.

Our trip to Belize was wonderful! Caye Caulker was wonderful!  I got my scuba certification and Ron enjoyed diving the Blue Hole. Thanks for putting together a great package!
Tina L.

I just wanted to report that we had a fantastic trip! Costa Rica is an incredible country. It was an amazing experience for all of us.  Thank you for your guidance and great service. We hope to return to explore more of the country. It was just a taste.
Nancy K.

Everything was wonderful, Gina!  Thanks for planning our stay and our transportation. The staff at the Hotel Tango Mar were excellent, truly a blessing. We took several excursions while we were there and made plans for returning in two years with our three children. The people of Costa Rica are so hospitable and kind.  Earl was great and the Hotel Grano de Oro was beautiful.  Thanks again.
Debbie and Jeff

Everything went perfectly! We had a very nice time. Thank you very much for all of your assistance putting the trip together. We will definitely look you up the next time we visit Costa Rica.
Dan L.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and want to thank you for putting together a great itinerary.

We had a great time. Would recommend both the Best Western in Jaco Beach and the Hotel Presidente. Rafting was lots of fun.  People were so friendly and had some great food. We really had a great time and appreciate all your help.
Becky and Liz

Hola, Gina! We love Earl. He was so dependable and nice. He is a jewel and we want to thank you for sending him to pick us up.  Hotel Amistad was fine and the Hotel Villas Nicolas was very nice.  We could hear howler monkeys every morning which was really cool! Thanks again for all your help.
Virginia M.

We had a marvelous time! Costa Rica has to be one of the most beautiful spots on Earth! We particularly liked the Trogon Lodge for its natural splendor, isolation and Quetzals. The Hotel Grano de Oro is a fine hotel with an excellent restaurant. Overall, it was a great experience. Until next year!
Craig T.

Things went well. All Paradise Air Charter flights were on time and hassle free. The pilots are pros! The Casa Corcovado was very good with excellent food and amazing setting. Mal Pais was also great!  The waves were big and challenging.  Overall, another great trip. Thanks for your help.
Mike H.

We loved Costa Rica and the people!  In retrospect, I would have probably rented a car. The Zip-line was fun and scary and the rafting was a total adrenaline trip! The Arenal Volcano and the Tabacon Hot Springs were incredible. We would have preferred to stay overnight had we had the time. The meals on the day trips were great. We especially liked the lunch that was part of the Zip-line Tour. Anyway, we had a great time and loved the country.
Nancy W.

Last week I went to Costa Rica with Robert M's. group. I would like to extend my appreciation for such a great trip! Everything went as smooth as possible and most importantly my thanks to Armando. He made the trip! He is friendly and nice and we would not have had such a good time without him. I will be going again and will not hesitate to recommend your travel agency or Armando. Thanks again.
Don L.

Wow, we had a great time! The Villa Kiskadee at the Hotel Tulemar was perfect for our group!
The Jackson Family

We just got back from our trip. It was incredible! All our transportation worked out great. Thank you for all your help. If anyone asks us how to get around Costa Rica, we will definitely recommend you!
Eric M.

Gina, the trip you arranged for us was just terrific-surpassing all our expectations. We all agreed that it was the best vacation we've ever taken and we've been to a lot of great places. You did a great job for us and we will recommend you highly to everyone we know. The Hotel Arenal Paraiso was terrific! We were fortunate enough to get great views of the volcano, including a daytime eruption. Apparently the best night views are from the other side of the mountain. My wife and daughter really enjoyed the spa.  In Monteverde the El Establo Hotel was fine. We ate at Morpho and it was excellent! In Tamarindo the Hotel Cala Luna was fantastic. We were stunned by our villa, with the private pool and amazing amount of space.  Excellent restaurant, also. The kids took surfing lessons and did another zip line. Maureen and I did a boat tour of the mangrove estuary and saw lots of wildlife. Thanks, Gina, for planning such a good trip for us. You really did an excellent job!
The Solomon Family

Gina, our trip was fabulous! The country is beautiful and the people very pleasant and gracious. The Hotel Don Carlos was absolutely charming. The Playa Grande was very unspoiled and the Hotel Las Tortugas was the perfect place for surfing. The boys enjoyed that. Many thanks for arranging our trip. I hope you get a lot of business from our high recommendations.
Tina H.

I really enjoyed our trip. Armando is an excellent driver and very prompt. All our day tours were fabulous! The Hotel Don Carlos was the perfect place to stay to go out and walk around the city.  The Tabacon Resort is lovely, enjoyed the hot springs, food and prices. All in all we had an enjoyable experience and learned a great deal about Costa Rica.

Just wanted to let you know that our trip was awesome! The Hotel Los Iguana in Arenal was unbelievable! That was our favorite hotel by far! We would have preferred a villa at the Hotel Cala Luna with a private swimming pool. Our stay in San Jose was nice too. Thanks for your help in what proved to be a great vacation. We didn't want to leave.
Suzanne H.

Another super trip! The Hotel Grano de Oro treated us like long lost friends.  Armando was always on time as usual. We fell in love with the Trogon Lodge. The manager even took us to see some Quetzals himself. We also went trout fishing and Dallas caught a huge one. Great birding at the Trogon too! Evenings and early mornings were cold. The staff was incredible. Thanks for all your help. Until next year...
Mike, Hallie, Dallas and Pam

We had a great time in Costa Rica and plan on going back sometime soon.  We really enjoyed fishing at Casa Mar.  We had an outstanding Captain/Guide Tony, despite rough fishing conditions was determined to get a Tarpon and he did!  We caught a 100lb Tarpon at the end of the day.  He gave us a fight but we finally reeled him in.  We also enjoyed the Arenal area visiting the Hanging Bridges and the Tabacon Resort.  We can't say enough about our driver Earl!  He really helped make our trip a special one.  He went out of his way to suggest places to see, go to dinners, night life and where to stay away from.  He was very reliable and very nice.  Scott and I want to thank you for making all this happen and for doing such a great job!
Clyde and Scott

Thank you, Gina, for all your work!  We enjoyed ourselves and loved the country.  Mapache Rent-A-Car worked out well and arrangements were easy.  We loved Hotel Capitan Suizo.  It was beautiful, rooms were comfy, loved the decor and the staff was great.  Tabacon was also a beautiful resort. The Hotel Fonda Vela in Monteverde was also nice.  It is hard getting around San Jose so maybe next time, we'd like to stay on the outside of the city (maybe at the airport) to avoid this confusion.  Thank you for all your work making arrangements for us and we loved all the parts of the country that you suggested we visit.  Costa Rica is a beautiful place.
Leslie M.

I will be sure to recommend your travel agency to anyone I know visiting
Costa Rica. Great service!

Back home after a super trip! Everything went well. The jungle was beautiful with birds and flowers everywhere. The Hotel Grano de Oro in San Jose was a perfect way to start and end a jungle adventure. Thank you for making this all happen. We still have more of Costa Rica to explore.
Gina, we'll be contacting you again.
Mike P.

Gina, I just wanted to let you know that you are so nice and unbelievably helpful! Without your help, advice and knack in getting us reservations at the extreme last hour, I wouldn't have had such a fantastic time. The hotels were exactly as you told us they would be, and we loved them! The people at the Hotel La Amistad were great and made us feel at home! The Tabacon Resort was exceptional and just as luxurious as you told us it
would be. All the transportation was on time and made traveling such a breeze! We LOVED the Highlights Tour. Our tour guide, Alvarro, was the best! I will be sure to recommend your travel agency and web site to anyone who wants to visit Costa Rica. Thanks again for making my trip to Costa Rica such a thrilling experience for me!
Carolyn S.

Our trip to Costa Rica was great! All the travel details went smoothly. Bosque del Cabo was wonderful! We had a beautiful cabin overlooking the Pacific; a perfect perch to plan our daily hikes through the rain forest. Hotel Capitan Suizo in Tamarindo was also great! Our son enjoyed the pool and the big breakfast at Capitan Suizo. Thanks for all your help putting this trip together for us.
Joshua M.

We loved our trip to Costa Rica and we are already recommending you to my sister and some friends who want to go. The Hotel Don Carlos was fine...the ambiance was good and the location was perfect for starting our trip. Mapache Rent-A-Car provided excellent service. Capitan Suizo was a really good hotel...great staff and food! We saw monkeys, raccoons, iguanas and birds which was fun for the kids. Thanks again for your assistance.
Bill S.

Our honeymoon trip was awesome! We had a great time! Thank you for all of your planning and suggestions.
Elle B.

Gina, I just wanted to send you a big thank you! Our trip to Manuel Antonio - Quepos was amazing! We had an absolute blast! I can't wait to go back!
Sarah D.

The Tilajari Resort was a great place to stay for us and the kids. The Papagayo Resort was larger than we expected but met all our needs fine. Our overall vacation was beyond our expectations. Our kids learned a lot and did things they never dreamed of doing. Thanks for your assistance. You made our family vacation a memorable one. We be calling you back in a year or so. There is so much more for us to do and see.
Diane C.

Thank you for your excellent and FAST service.
Michele and Charles P.

Gina---The trip was great--very easy--no problems.
Costa Rica was everything we had imagined and more. Thanks for connecting us with Earl. He understood just what we wanted to see. We spent 2 days with him - Friday and Sunday. He took us into American and Tico homes, we looked at apartments and houses, and had a really good time with him. We will be going back after the first of the year and will be moving there as soon as possible. We'll be contacting you when we can put a date on our next trip. Thanks again for everything.
Warren N.

We had an absolutely wonderful time! In fact, we are thinking of going again next year and maybe visiting some different areas.
Thank you again for organizing such a fabulous trip.
