We tried to talk to Costa Rica Amazing tours on the beach, but they did not seem eager for business. I do not recommend them. See my review I just posted today. I would Highly recommend Costa Rica Bestrips with Ariel and Jose (found on the beach). We did the Borinquin tour with them and had fun. They were very professional and really wanted to do a good job.

I am surprised at your comments, we found Costa Rica Amazing Tours to be first class .... maybe the guy on the beach you spoke to wasn't Alex or Sergio !

My family and I had an awesome time with Alex on the Hacienda Tour. We had no problem communicating with him and Sergio. Everything went really smooth and was first rate. My husband works for an airline and we know great service when we see it. This was top-notch! -Sharon and Jeff - Atlanta, Ga

I did extensive research before leaving for Costa Rica and found that most people raved about these guys. I emailed Sergio ahead of time and worked everything out. He was prompt in getting back to me and helpful as far as catering to what we wanted to do, letting us know what to bring, etc. Once we got to CR, it was easy to find them and setting everything up with them was a breeze. We did #7 (Zip Line, Horseback riding, Hot springs, Llanos de Cortez Waterfall) as well as the Nicaragua tour. Both were AMAZING!! I've heard rave reviews about the other tours as well. If you have any specific questions, feel free to contact me or check out my recent review of Riu Guanacaste which gives a more detailed itinerary of each tour.

We stayed at the Riu from 7/28 - 8/4. It was a beautiful hotel, well maintained, and clean. The rooms were nice. Yes the beds are hard and the pillows were soft, but we slept fine. The food was good. Always found something on the buffet. Asian was our favorite restaurant. Met lots of wonderful people. Yes it is isolated but we planned things to do and loved our time at the hotel relaxing. Vacation

s are what you make of them. If you want to go on an excursion, use Costa Rica Amazing Tours. Alex is a wonderful guide and we spent an amazing day with him at Palo Verde Tour. Saw tons of monkeys, crocs, bats, birds, iguanas. Ate at a Costa Rican home and went to Cocoa Beach. It was a fantastic day! Also, if you want to surf call Point Break Surf. We went on Monday and loved it so much we went back on Thursday. Natasha and Matt are incredible people and my three sons got up their first time trying to surf! The beach they take you to is lovely, white sand and very quiet. We also booked a day of deep sea fishing with North Pacific Tours. Great company to work with. Caught fish and the Riu cooked it for us that night. Talk about fresh! I can't wait to get back to Costa Rica again. Pura Vida!!!

I can only agree with the people who say Alex and his team are fantastic, we went on several trips with them in April 2011, they were second to none, great service, great prices, great trips, nothing was too much trouble for them. On most of our trips we had Daniel as a tour guide and Miguel as the driver. Our trips consisted of 4 people and we started out early so as to avoid the coach trips ie when we went on the river trip we were able to feed the monkeys as we were early and they were hungry, on our way back down the river there were boats waiting for the monkeys to get on but they weren't hungry and so didn't bother to get on the boats. They even stopped at an unscheduled place and found a sloth as I had said I wanted to see one. If I was really looking for something negative to say about them I wouldn't be able to find anything!
