Fly and Drive- Gate1 Travel

We are considering a 12 day fly and drive package with Gate 1 Travel in February of next year. Has anyone used this travel provider in Costa Rica.

Any other recommendations of other fly and drive providers.

Gate 1 has a pretty good reputation. They have been around a while and I have never really heard anything bad about them. Do some forum searches and you will pull up some info. More may chime in but IMO you are fine with them.

Gate 1 is definitely a reputable provider, but check the hotel accomodations they offer in the packages, an look at upgrading some of the resorts. I've seen them use a hotel (can not rememeber the name of it but its off the Pan Am hwy right before Canas turn off going toward Fortuna and near the Zoo), and advertise that as Guanacaste (which the hotel is in, but no where near the main Guanacaste tourist areas around the beaches), also they use Tiljari a lot for lead pricing, which is a very nice resort, but about 20-30 min. away from the main area around Arenal/La Fortuna.

There's nothing wrong with that....but usually the upgrades and slightly better locations can be had with them for just a little more. If you're looking at the Open Voucher program, I would opt for the upgraded list of hotels as well.
