From my very first contact with Don, our experience with Vacation Buggy was outstanding.
He is prompt and thorough with his emails and was even around to take a late evening phone call from me the night before our tour.
Our guide was Luis, and I can't say enough good things about him. He was exactly on time, stopped in Quepos to let us watch a troop of Squirrel Monkeys that he spotted, gave an informative tour of the Palm Oil groves (his English is excellent!), stopped along the way for drinks and snacks, dug up some cool frogs for us to see on our hike, and took us to the most amazing waterfall. The drive itself is so beautiful and so much fun!
The best thing about the tour was the privacy. Since it was just our family (2 adults, 2 kids - 12, 15) we were able to go at our own pace and ask all the questions we wanted. The waterfall is in a remote location and it felt like we were the only people for miles around for most of the day. We stayed at the waterfall for as long as we wanted and had it all to ourselves. The water is cool but even this FL girl got in! As for the scenery, I was stunned by how vivid and vibrant the jungle and sky were out here.
We stopped for lunch at a local soda that no one would ever find without a local guide. It was delicious and the view was great.
We really enjoyed talking with Luis about his life in Costa Rica and sharing some info about the U.S. with him. Luis, I hope you at least make it to Tampa someday!
