How can I possible answer an amazing review like this? It just doesn't seem like thank you is enough. Maybe if we put up the flags and it was declared a national holiday that may indicate how great we feel about your report. We also love Jose.

We did the zip line tour and it was fabulous! We had a motley crew with various skill sets and ages and our guides were amazing! We had an older gentleman in our group and they were so kind and patient with him. They made our adventure fun and non-stressful. We will be sure to recommend the zip lining to... More

Great review, thank you. We're happy that you reported how our guides are. First, they love what they do. Second, Costa Ricans are very respectfully of the older generation, it's in their culture. Interesting thing is that our guides are the same with the younger generation, proving what we have known for 47 years, "Costa Ricans are really nice people".... More

I stayed for a week and all of my ways were fulfilled with exciting activities in nature and excellent guides and drivers. I couldn't have arranged such tour by myself. It's worth arranging my trip again with BB's.Thank you.

Wonderful report, thank you.

Nadine was amazing to work with. We booked several excursions with her and all went without any issues. We went whitewater rafting, zip lining, ATVing, on a catamaran snorkel cruise and scuba diving. Transportation was included from our resort eliminating that stressor. All were great experiences and Nadine was always available to help with the planning beforehand.
