"Tomato" (yes, he is a guy!! His ruddy complexion led friends to call him "Tomato.") has been an excellent vacation services guide since I first encountered him back in 2010. Our vacation group usually numbers around 16 or so. Cheerful, courteous, reliable, energetic, mature, patient, and scrupulously honest. Mauricio speaks excellent English and his communications are very responsive as he... More

Tomato took us on several tours, and he was fantastic! His personality, combined with his reliability and his knowledge of and evident pride in Costa Rica, make him the perfect guide. Highly recommend!

This is our second time using Tomato in Costa Rica. He is completely reliable and is very responsive to all communications. I find this extremely beneficial when booking airport transfers and excursions from the States. He provided airport transfers to and from our resort at Dreams Las Mareas for our family of six at a much cheaper rate than what... More

Tomato is a wonderful tour guide. We went on four tours during the week and everything was as expected with excellent service from beginning to end. Tomato is friendly, funny and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend and reuse this tour guide service.

You couldn't ask for a better tour guide. First class service from beginning to end, we got everything we wanted and then some, because Tomato is not only affable and completely accommodating, but he is like traveling with your own complete Encyclopedia. Whether it's history, culture, geography or current affairs, we could not ask a question that he didn't have... More

Tomato Adventures made our trip to Costa Rica amazing!!! Tomato was top notch and his knowledge of Costa Rica was amazing!! He picked us up from the airport for a private transfer with an air conditioned vehicle. He was very friendly and we enjoyed his conversation. We also booked a canopy tour, white water rafting trip and offshore fishing trip... More

When we decided to go to Costa Rica for our summer vacation we knew it would not be our typical beach style vacation. We started researching tours and whom to use and decided on Tomato Adventures. Mauricio (Tomato) was amazing from the easy of booking to handling all of the tours. We booked our airport transfers as well as the... More

We booked a private Nicaragua tour for our group of 6 when we visited over New Year's. My boyfriend had been texting and emailing with Tomato before we even got there, and we met up with him at our hotel to give him all our passport info and pay a deposit. He informed us that he wouldn't be our guide... More

We booked Tomato tours for our transfers and tours and could not be happier. Tomato himself was in contact with us all the time before arriving to Costa Rica for Easter vacations.
