After we were ditched by our original company, Bernardo saw us frustrated in the lobby and helped us book with his company. We were not disappointed and what could have been a disaster turned out to be a god send!

Our group (6 adults, 5 kids) took an all day excursion to the Arenal Volcano and tropical rainforest. The transformation from the parched Guanacaste area to the lush and vivid rainforest was incredible. We took a sky tram up to the zip lines which ran across the high tree tops and gorges below. It was both exhilarating and terrifying. We... More

BEST PRICING hands down! Fabulous customer service too. Ask for Roberto in the long sleeve green shirts in front of the Rui Guanacaste & the Scooby Doo discount! We went on the sunset booze cruise & snorkeling. Great time & lots of fun had by all. Mega Combo Family Adventure Daily Tours I would suggest you go on the horses... More

My boyfriend and I booked private tour to Miravalles Waterfall with Vargas Tours prior to visiting Costa Rica. Lupita was amazing and very helpful through the whole process. Once we arrived to the hotel we contacted her via phone, and she once again explained all details. We had an amazing experience that included horseback riding, walking throughout the rain forest...

My husband and I booked this tour from home prior to arriving in Costa Rica and had a great experience dealing with owner Lupita from booking to her picking us up from our hotel on the day of our tour. We picked Vargas Tours because we liked that they keep their groups smaller for a more personal experience. Our guide... More

We booked this trip through Gecko Tico Tours outside the Riu Guanacaste resort. Be sure to book through this agency instead of a group inside the hotel because you will save about 40% off the price. We had one guide take us to the border, and then we had a guide from Nicaragua for the rest of the tour. Our... More

Prior to visiting Costa Rica this summer, my husband did some online research on tour companies in the Papagayo area. He found Vargas Tours, we read the reviews, then we booked our tour. To celebrate our honeymoon, we chose the full day, private tour of the Miravalles Waterfall. We had an amazing, fun-filled day which included Ziplining (12 platforms!), a... More

This is our 2nd time using Vargas tours. We used them 8 years ago with a great experience, so we booked them again with this return visit to Costa Rica! We choose Vargas tours for the personal service. So worth the money to be one in one with a guide! It was just my husband and I with Ricardo. He... More

Our trip started with Ricardo who picked us up at the airpot, such a pleasant, funny gentleman. The day of our excursion Ricardo was back and we met a new crew member named Robert, Robert is...
