Just returned from Costa Rica yesterday June 20, 2014. We used Costa Rica North West transportation service and it was excellent. http://www.costaricanorthwest.com/index.html
When we arrived at Liberia airport (which is really small) the driver was waiting for us with a smile (Marco). He was very knowledgeable about the area and had us to the RIU in 30 minutes. While there we also used them for two excursions. Whitewater rafting and a beach tour. Each tour was customized to what we wanted to do. We had the same driver (Javier) for both tours because after the first tour, we requested him. Javier provided excellent service and treated us like family. When we go back to Costa Rica we are going to use Costa Rica North West as our transportation and tour service. Pura Vida

Me and my boyfriend took our trip to Costa Rica in January, and we were so luck to find these guys! Javier picked us up from the San Jose airport in a clean, air conditioned SUV. While taking us to our hotel, Javier let us use his wifi to email our families from our phone, so they knew we arrived safe. He offered to stop at many different restaurants on the way, and we even stopped to get up close to some monkeys! He gave us some wonderful information about the history of CR and the areas we were driving through. At one point he stopped and bought us coconut milk that we drank straight from the coconut. :) He really went out of his way the entire trip to make our experience enjoyable and safe.

The ricon de la vieja was an awesome adventure that was lead by JC, who is one of the coolest tour guides you will ever meet! The palo verde nature by water tour is a must! We got up close to many monkeys, lizards, birds, and crocodiles. The best part of that trip was eating authentic Costa Rican food prepared for us on an old wood burning stove by a few wonderful Costa Rican ladies and served family style.

When going on a vacation with only two people, it is so difficult to bring back great photos since you have no one to take them for you.But we have so many beautiful pictures and videos that Javier and JC took of us. It was like having our own photographers!

The whole staff at CR northwest are accommodating and friendly. They have a passion for what they do, even donating some of their profits to support the communities you visit during your trip! 100% recommended. A big, long over due thank you to Susu, Javier, and JC for being the best!

We went with another couple and booked all our stuff through Costa Rica NW.They provided round trip airport transfer,We did a 1/2 day fishing trip where we caught skip jack Tuna and a nice Mahi Mahi.One of the things I liked most was it was a private tour with just the 4 of us.The best excursion was a day trip with zip lining ,horseback riding ,hot springs and a great lunch.All our guides were good ,spoke good English and we always felt safe but Mario was awesome.He did our excursions with us he was so knowledgeable You could ask a question on any subject and he always had an answer.We will definitely book your company again!

We used Costa Rica North West as transportation from Liberia Airport to our hotel near Tenorio National Park, approximately 2.5 hours away. A van picked us up from the airport, which slightly surprised me as I heard the road leading to our secluded hotel was extremely bumpy and it was recommended to use a 4x4 vehicle. With that being said, our driver was fantastic and navigated the road slowly and cautiously. It felt like quite a feat to arrive at our hotel, not by just us, but by our driver too! Sure enough, for our transport back to the airport at the end of our stay, a small 4x4 vehicle was waiting for us.

We had very friendly and cordial drivers throughout. One driver even stopped on the roadside so we could try pipas (coconut milk/water) that is very popular in Costa Rica! Very informative and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed this company and highly recommend them for travel consideration. Susu was fantastic in responding promptly to all emails. Our flight was delayed approximately 3 hours getting into Liberia, but our driver was still waiting with a smile on his face. Pure class all around. The price was very competitive with other companies in the area. Should we return to the region, we will definitely use Costa Rica North West.

Even though my trip from Monteverde to San Jose is coming up and not happened as of yet, planning for this transportation has been SO easy, helpful and quick. Susu and the crew answer questions immediately. If they cannot answer, they are honest and say so. I am so looking forward to the drive down the mountains. Hopefully, we will be able to come back and take a trip with just this company. Costa Rica Northwest is organized, knowledgeable and matches drivers well with clients. I highly recommed working with them.
