He took pictures of us and helped us find wildlife when we could not find it on our own. Our second trip was to the waterfalls, here we had Juan, again, he... More

We took a day trip from Riu Guanacaste to the Rincon de la Veija with CAT tours. Our guide Alexander was great! On the way there he told us tons of information about volcanoes. During our hike he was constantly looking for birds and animals. He made sure we saw Howler monkeys, white faced monkeys and even a few spider... More

My wife and I were in a CTA Tour van on our way back to the airport when an accident occurred. It was not the fault of our driver. We are thankfully ok. The CTA Tour owner's son (Francis) met us at the hospital. He ensured our luggage was safe while my wife was evaluated. At the same time he... More

This tour was booked by my travel agent but was handled by CATours. We could not have asked for a better tour or better guide & driver. They picked us up in San Jose, then we travel to the Arenal volcano area for 2 nights at an excellent small hotel, then on to the MonteVerde area for 2 nights then... More

We booked though a travel agent, but our itinerary was handled by CAT. Maria met us at the airport and at that point we weren't sure what to expect. We didn't need to worry.

We thoroughly enjoyed all three o our trips and our hotel shuttle from Catours. The guides were fantastic, including Christian and Arturo. Plenty of jokes, teaching us new phrases in Spanish, telling us so much neat info on the wildlife, people, culture and history of Costa Rica. I recommend using Catours to see the country!

Need I say more the excursions were the best. Even though I didn't zip line the massage, jacuzzi and mud made everything worthwhile. RACHEL, RACHEL, RACHEL was the best. You have made my trip to Costa Rica MEMORABLE.
