I came to Santa Teresa on a honeymoon with my wife and had the best time with Jepo and Diego who gave us a life changing experience hiking through the jungle. We also Kayaked and Surfed. Two things I've never done before but felt super comfortable with these guys because it was a private tour and I could tell they... More

My husband and I were a little hesitant to book a kayaking tour with Olingo due to the cost of a private tour compared with the prices of group tour but we are SO glad that we did! The experience with Olingo was outstanding! Because it was a private tour our experience with nature felt very intimate as we kayaked... More

My friend and I stayed at Latitude 10 resort, they arranged our 2 surf lessons and snorkeling excursions through Olingo. The surf instructors were extremely friendly and helpful, it was just one instructor for two of us so was a very personal lesson. The snorkeling excursion was a full day outing where we went to a nature reserve, went snorkeling,... More

The wife and I spent 3 way too short days at the enchanting Latitude 10 resort in Santa Theresa. Needless to say the trip was nothing short of amazing and a special thanks goes to Japo, Mickey and Marcelo of Olingo! Santa Theresa has an flawless reputation for surfing thus the wife and I figured when in Rome. Mickey was... More

We booked a fishing trip and a snorkeling trip through Olingo. Both were very nice. However, in neither case did we actually meet anyone from Olingo. The fishing trip was done by a local guy in Mal Pais and the snorkeling trip was hosted by Sun Trails. Perhaps one could save some money by booking directly with the people who... More

We booked a horseback riding tour directly via our hotel, Latitude 10, and it proved to be one of the absolute highlights of an overall a fantastic trip to Costa Rica. We had Douglas as our guide, and would highly recommend him. He was incredibly passionate, knowledgable about Costa Rica, its environment and society, and overall a lovely and attentive... More

Marcelo was our guide, very knowledgeable, patient and eager to share with us this small part of his country for which he is very proud. It was time well spent in Santa Teresa.

I had a great instructor who provided and nice board and reef shirt. I was able to stand after one set of lessons. I went back and hired them two more... More

Daniel picked us up at the hotel and took us to Playa Hermosa where we had the beach to ourselves! The waves were perfect for learning. Daniel took time and was patient with my daughter and before you know it she was in the water and standing on her board! He was a great and supportive teacher. We had a... More

Never been surf before and took first lesson with "Mickey". He was a awesome guide with a great attitude (Pura Vida)! The guy in the office was nice. Price was reasonable. Lesson took about two hours. Beaware that you are in Costa Rica and don't be in a hurry. Sometimes schedules can change.
