Howard Shaw – New York – March 2017
“From the moment he picked us up at the airport, we could tell we were in good hands. Over the next six days, we went on several great hikes in Arenal and Monteverde, visited interesting farms and went zip lining in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Our guide’s ability to spot hard to find wildlife was truly amazing. We saw spider monkeys, howler monkeys, two toed sloths, three toed sloths, tarantulas, poison dart frogs, pit vipers, leaf cutter ants, toucans, macaws and the Resplendent Quetzel, in addition to countless other varieties of beautiful birds. He’s deep knowledge about the plants and animals of Costa Rica made every hike a fascinating adventure. While being professional in every way, he was also extremely warm and friendly, kindly sharing stories with us about growing up in Costa Rica.
Our guide’s love for what he does comes across very clearly. He made our visit to Costa Rica unforgettable. He is an excellent representative of Sun Tours. We would not hesitate to give him the highest possible recommendation.”
Henry Schultz – Ottawa, Canada – February 2017
“We will always have extremely fond memories of our 2017 trip to Costa Rica. We had a terrific time from start to finish, and much of that was due to the excellent services provided by Costa Rica Sun Tours. From our arrival at San Jos until our last airport transfer, everything went smoothly — without a hitch. We cannot say enough about the professionalism and courteousness of everyone we dealt with — without exception.
We very much enjoyed our visit to Arenal and to La Fortuna. But at the risk of showing a preference, the visit to Tiskita was particularly special. It is a singular place; we look forward to going back some day. Thanks very much again for organizing a superb and memorable trip for us.”

“It was a wonderful trip to Costa Rica. . All arrangements were executed as planned . We loved Tortugero. The lodge was beautiful and the river trips great. All the guides were knowledgeable, sincere, kind and dedicated. Service staff were too. Jacó was above expectations especially with the Tarcoles river tour we booked and great meals. The hotel there was really nice with good staff and service. The guide was excellent! The visit to the orchid gardens we liked a lot and it was a lovely spot for lunch.
Costa Rica is indeed a beautiful country with lovely people. Thank you for your excellent help. All good wishes. Pura Vida.”

“Hi Tex, thank you again for being such a great guide for our PhotoFlyTravel group in Costa Rica. Your knowledge and enthusiasm made my trip very special. I have attached two photos of you that are really good, so I know you will like them! If you ever travel to Florida, let me know!I’ll bring you to the best birding spots! Happy travels, happy birding!”

“I am writing to express our satisfaction with our guide, he has proven to be the best guide in our travelling experience. He is thoughtful, considerate, hard working and knowledgeable. Despite his claim that he is not an ornithologist, when I shared my interest in birds, which my husband likes to photograph, he managed to find us more birds than either of us ever anticipated. He helped my husband to find the best photo opportunities possible.
He was committed to ensuring that we enjoyed our trip to the maximum, and he accomplished his goal. Each and every day was a special, delightful journey and meaningful, learning experience. We are very grateful for the wonderful memories that we will cherish as a result of our guide’s expertise and caring.”

“Recently, I led a group of Bird watchers on a trip through Costa Rica through Costa Rica Sun Tours. There are many factors that make a trip a success. But to me, a key element is a safe and welcoming driver. Each day as we started to the next site, he was there with a smile and a kind word. Each time we stopped he took care to help people down from the bus. Never had to worry about anything, he is an outstanding driver. “

“I wanted to let you know that although we were disappointed we were not able to do everything we had hoped to do on our trip to Costa Rica because of Hurricane Otto, my wife & I had a wonderful time on our vacation. This was mostly due to the behind the scenes staff rerouting our travels and working to get excellent accommodation and activities at short notice. I would like to give special praise to our guide and our driver, who even though they had to constantly deliver disappointing news, were always cheerful and worked hard to keep the spirit and cohesion of the group together. We feel so luck that they led our trip! Thank you to all of your staff for making our first time in Latin America so memorable!”
Alison Skeels – Ontario, Canada – October 2016
