        Amazing Time
        Wonderful communication from start to finish! Very attentive, communicative and quick to respond. Very kind people. Damer, driver that picked us up from the airport had the company logo on his shirt with our name on a sign. A different guy with a non logo shirt tried to say that he was our driver and took my bags from me but Damer gave me a reassuring eye that he was our driver and the other guy doesn’t work with him. Smooth quick rides both directions, to and from airport. Communicated with Adriana on WhatsApp the whole time and she was wonderful! Would love to book with them again in the future.

        Julio Is The Best
        Oh my gosh! Where do we begin. We flew into Liberia Airport and were welcomed in by Julio, our driver. Not only was Julio super friendly and easy to talk to, but extremely informative about the towns, local people, delicious spots to eat, hiking trails, wild life, etc. We spent half the trip in the jungle staying at Rio Perdido and the other half at beach Andaz Papagayo. Both hotels were heaven. Staff were amazing. Food was divine. Local amenities/ activities: pools, bars, and, trails, barista class, mixology class, zip lining, etc was beyond memorable. We hiked Rio Celeste, where we saw the incredible waterfall and were driven out to the sloth sanctuary. Julio drove us of course (we didn’t want anyone else) and was so knowledgeable about the plants, animals, and locations. He gave great recommendations on what to do and answered all our extra questions. He made our drives so entertaining and quick. He really was one of the highlights of our trip! Thank you Julio for being so great and apart of our memories!

        Friendly, reliable, easy communication.
        Very reliable transportation from airport to hotel and back. Driver was there waiting for us at the airport with a sign and was early to hotel to pick us up. Easy communication and payment. My son and I also took the trip to the Arenal rainforest and did the hanging bridges walk then the hot springs (you can choose 2 different activities to do). We had a lovely, informative and friendly guide and it was just the 2 of us with the guide. Included a great breakfast and lunch and a relaxing time at the hot springs after our hike. Would highly recommend Costa Rica Best Trips and are suggesting our friends use them when they go to Costa Rica in 2 weeks!

        Great Tour!
        We booked a round trip airport transfer and the Buena Vista Mega Combo Tour with 'Costa Rica Best Trips Transfers and Tours'. We were very happy with the experience. On top of being very cost competitive, it was easy to book and the driver (Ariel) was very friendly!

        Excellent Experience!
        We used Costa Rica Best Trips on our 4 day vacation multiple times for airport transfers and for the Arenal Volcano and Rainforest tour they offered. They were excellent the entire time and everyone in our group had nothing but praises for their whole staff. They were always on time and very flexible and knowledge, especially Julio, our guide for the Arenal tour. Ramon and Ariel (the owner) were also wonderful and very communicative. Highly recommend to use them for airport transfers as well as any tours you might be interested in as they offer a variety!

        Fabulous Tours & Transfers with Costa Rica Best Trips!
        We had wonderful tours & transfers with Costa Rica Best Trips! Communication with the office was exceptional, with detailed confirming itineraries and additional email confirmation the day before the event. Our transfers to and from Andaz resort were on time, friendly and professional. Our 2 nature and hiking tours were truly amazing, thanks to Julio, our guide, naturalist and driver. The first tour was to Monte Verde Cloud Forest and Biological Reserve. The second tour was to Heliconias Rainforest ending with a waterfall swim. Julio introduced us to the remarkable biodiversity of this beautiful country with sightings and explanations of birds, reptiles, monkeys, trees, flowers, and more inhabitants of the forest. If you do the cloud forest tour, be sure to bring a warm rain jacket as the temperature in the forest is very chilly and very much cooler than at the beaches. This is a very long day, but worth every moment! Highly recommend getting away from the beach and doing a nature tour during your stay. Highly recommend Costa Rica Best Tours for your transfers and tours in Costa Rica - and be sure to ask for Julio as your guide!

        Costa Rica experience
        Our family of four had a wonderful experience on the Miravelles Volcano crater tour yesterday. Ask for Andreas. He was on time for pick up. Very knowledgeable and made our day extra special. We loved the photos and videos he captured of us. From waterfalls and mud bath to horseback riding and a delicious lunch.

        Great transfers to/from Liberia Airport!
        We used Costa Rica Best Trips for our roundtrip transfers from Liberia airport to our resort, Secrets Papagayo. They were AMAZING! Our driver and guide was waiting for us at the airport exit with a sign and my name on it. They both spoke English and loaded our luggage for us into their big air conditioned van. Our guide pointed out local spots along the way and answered all our questions. They dropped us off at our resort’s front lobby. For our return transfer they contacted me through the WhatsApp the day before to confirm my transfer and pickup time. They were there on time and took us back to Liberia airport. If you are looking for transfers to/from your resort then I highly recommend using Costa Rica Best Trips! They are a family run business and they do an AMAZING job!

        Amazing Costa Rican Vacation
        Ariel and his crew are amazing. Our flight was delayed by 3 hrs but they were there on time to pick us up at front door. Transport back to airport was delayed as well and they were so accommodating in changing our pick up time so we didn’t need to wait at airport for hours. We also did a tour from our hotel and the guide and activities were amazing. Our tour guide was so personable and told us much history during our ride. I actually got sick during trip and he kept checking on me and even took a detour to Walmart so I could get medicine. I would highly recommend Ariel and this company for all your needs during your Costa Rica trip.

        Costa Rica Best Trips make Cost Arica trips the best
        After meeting the company owner, Ariel, my husband and I signed up for both the borinquen canopy combo and the palo verde boat tour. Both were amazing from start to end. We could not recommend Costa Rican best trips more. Their prices are unbeatable and there operators are knowledgeable, friendly and trust worth.

        Ariel, the owner operator, picked us up. He is nice, professional, respectful and courteous. My wife and we’re so impressed with him we did two more adventures with Costs Rica Best arropa during our week long stay at the Andaz.

        Amazing trip to Heliconias Rain Forest and Hanging Bridges
        We had a wonderful excursion visiting the Heliconias Rain Forest and Hanging Bridges along with an eco farm and a waterfall. Our transportation was comfortable, and our guide was terrific. The eco farm was worth the extra money, and I would not miss it - sloths, tree frogs, amazing vegetation. We had a delicious Costa Rican lunch with a gorgeous view while we ate. I cannot say enough positive about the day, and I look forward to using this company for other excursions when we return to Costa Rica again.

      I booked transportation from the airport to the RIU Guanacaste with no expectations. When I met Ariel, I immediately sensed he was a really good guy. He was very accommodating with my family and I. I ended up booking my excursions with him and stuck with him my entire 5 days. This is a family business and Ariel and his family are the best you will find in Costa Rica. They are knowledgeable, honest and do not rush you. If he says he will pick you up at a certain time, he will be there on the dot. There was several times he had to wait for us…. When we arrived and spent about and hour and a half in customs and when we had to do our COVID testing at the hotel. Ariel got there the time he said he would and waited for us with no problem. They will even go off schedule to stop by a store for you and will show you Costa Rica in its entirety. He always respond to calls or texts, immediately. On one occasion, Ariel kept hearing my wife talk about all the mango trees. He stopped the van and picked a couple mangos from a tree to give my wife. I joked and said, “That’s how you shut her up!” and we all laughed about it. So, if you want fun, laughter, great fees and no hassle of rushing during your trip, book with Costa Rica Best Trips! A very humble, honest, caring family business and I give them 100 stars!!! I’m sticking with them every time I visit.

      Ariel was a great driver. He provided us with on time pickup and delivery from the airport. We were a last minute booking (day before) and his company got us taken care of at a very reasonable price for 6 people. We ended up using Ariel to book all of our tours except one which I booked way in advance (big mistake…as Ariel’s price was much cheaper for same stuff).

      I booked round trip private transportation with this company from LIR airport to the Riu guanacaste. The driver Ariel was waiting outside with a sign with my name. He was so professional and nice. My mother and I ended up booking an excursion through his company and it was the best experience ever !!! Highly recommend.

      Ariel and Costa Rica Best Trips is probably the best travel company I’ve ever used in a trip. We used them for our airport transfers in Costa Rica and 2 additional trips during our stay. Our day trips were whitewater rafting and a day trip to the local beaches, including Tamarindo. Ariel was professional and an expert in his knowledge of the area. This company exceeded our expectations on a number of occasions throughout the week. We are so grateful we found Costa Rica Best Trips, our trip would not have been the same without them! We highly recommend their service if you want a great experience during your trip.

      Costa Rica Best Trips literally made our trip to Costa Rica AMAZING! We highly recommend this business if you want hospitality at its best! Ariel literally made our week with our trip white water rafting, and the waterfall. This is the most accommodating service we’ve ever experienced. They make sure everything is planned and personalized. We traveled with a group of 6 with no trouble. Aerial was friendly, knowledgeable, and ensured we were well taken care of. We also used this company for our airport transfers with similar ease and expertise. We highly recommend Costa Rica Best Trips if you want to make great memories!

      We had our private transport to and from the air port. As well as a tour to one of the volcanoes. The service was great. The tour was amazing the guide had lots of knowledge and it was private so we had a lot of time to do what we choose to spend more time on! They were always on time and accommodating! Awesome service! Can’t wait to use them again on our next trip to Costa Rica

      We absolutely LOVED using Best Trips! The team is very responsive and the excursions are a blast. The private tours really made it so much fun because we got a personalized experience and it was a great way to get to know the culture of Costa Rica by sharing in the adventure with our guide. Would highly recommend for anyone that is new to Costa Rica and wants a well planned day of fun.

      I found This transportation company by chance after looking for more affordable options to get back to Liberia airport. From the last minute communication on my part, Ariel responded promptly and got us scheduled to be picked up for our return trip home within an hour of me emailing. They were prompt with pick up and safely got us back to the airport. We appreciated being able to support a family business. We will definitely be using them again the next time we travel to Costa Rica.
