“The Very Best Adventures with Memo!”

MemoAdventures Tours Costa Rica
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Our family recently returned from a vacation to Costa Rica. We didn't book anything before leaving and in a "round-a-bout" way got connected with Memo Espinoza as a source for tours in the area. We had such a great time our first day we had him specialize a tour for us on another day. His attention to detail and personal attention was the BEST! We had such a great time and enjoyed his company and he was an EXCELLENT tour guide, taking us to places you wouldn't normally go on a group tour. We even recommended him to others at our hotel while we were there. You will not be disappointed with his services!!

Thank you Memo from the 9 of us from Pleasanton and Walnut Creek, CA. The service and insight was excellent and your attention to detail was unforgettable. Our neighbors in Pleasanton, CA recommended us to you and they were right you made the trip amazing.

We will be back and go Tico!!!

Memo did several tours for our group. We went to the National Park where Memo entertained us by feeding the crocodiles ...not only did he feed the crocodiles, but had one halfway in the boat with us! Don't let that scare you though! It was all fun! He let us feed the monkeys, and although I choose not to, he asked me several times if I wanted to....so he made sure that he left no one out.
We stopped for a family style home made lunch that was outstanding.
Memo's sense of time was a bit different than ours..everywhere we went was actually a farther away then Memo said...but hey we loved this guy!! He rocks!!

Thank you Memo from the 15 of us. The service and insight was great. As my 7 year old said "Memo is the best" and that is no lie. From the airport pick up to drop off and all the tours in between we had such an adventure and fun. The jungle tour was outstanding if not exciting with all the wildlife; as our family shouted this is the real jungle tour and not the Disneyland ride. The canopy outing was just as fantastic. Call Memo and he will not disappoint. Memo from all the "Tejanos" thank you!

Memo is an extremely personable English-speaking guide who is passionate about his job. He personalizes tours to meet his client’s needs and arranged a private tour for four of us to visit the Llanos de Cortez Waterfalls, Ecocentro Danaus, Lake Arenal, La Fortuna, and the Baldi Hot Springs. We went along with all his recommendations and were not disappointed. He has a spacious, comfortable, and immaculate SUV, and he is a careful and diligent driver. He also has books and pamphlets on the natural wildlife on hand for easy reference. Memo’s hawk-like eyes can easily spot monkeys, sloths, and birds and he will stop to let his clients to take photos. At the waterfalls, he found sturdy sticks to help us navigate the uneven trail, spotted a Jesus Christ lizard in the river and was able to get the basilisk to run across water.
For those who do not have the time or cannot hike through the rainforest, a guided tour of the Ecocentro Danaus, an ecological reserve of a natural regenerating secondary forest, is a great alternative. There is a butterfly farm and natural spring, and you can see flora and fauna in their natural habitat including basilisks, crocodiles, blue jean frog, various birds, agoutis, bats and iguanas. Our guide, Elias, was knowledgeable and took some of the pictures for us through his telescopic lens.
Our tour was a memorable experience and we highly recommend Memo without reservations. Memo made it easy to customize our itinerary to what we were interested in doing, Our private tour was comfortable and without time restrictions – Memo is most accommodating if you want to diverge from the arranged itinerary and spend more time on certain parts of the tour. He also provides drinks for the ride and arranged for us to have a typical Costa Rican lunch.
Finally, Memo is very proud of his country, which is demonstrated by his commitment to providing environmentally responsible tours and supporting underprivileged children. The Llanos de Cortez waterfalls and Ecocentro Danaus also support schools and educational programs. We salute Memo’s altruistic commitment!
