Party of 6, all first visit to Costa Rica. Chico made us feel so safe and is such a gentleman. He was so good to help my elderly mom in and out of the van. At one stop my mom wasn't up to getting out, he had someone stay with her. I highly recommend Chicos Tours to anyone. He answers all questions and he exceeded our expectations. I plan to go back to Costa Rica in October and will be looking him up again.

Highly recommend Chicos company. We were a group of 9 people in Costa Rica for business and tourism and Chico took care of everything from airport pick up to tours. His prices are super reasonable and the simplicity of booking makes Chico a go to. Highly recommend!

We stayed at Playa Bejuco. Our plane was delayed by quite a bit of time and Chico was there waiting! He took us amazing places and even extra unplanned stops when we asked without hesitation. His recommendations were always perfect! He is more than a tour guide, he has become like family. We already miss him. We also were thrilled to meet his wife and daughter, Julia, who helped us plan our trip. These are truly the most hospitable and kindest people you will ever meet. Chico is so professional and knowledgeable about his Country and things to do in Costa Rica and he is FUN! He is on time and dependable. We felt like we knew him forever! The best description I can give is when you book with Chico, it is more like booking with someone you know and can trust than a complete stranger. We saw amazing waterfalls, went ATV riding, zip lining, went to beautiful beaches, fishing, shopping, fantastic restaurants, saw monkeys, sloths, crocs, (just to name a few) ate amazing fresh fruits and were told the stories behind them, he even taught me how to cook a few things I really liked for when I got home, the list goes on. When you are traveling (in a very nice,comfortable vehicle) to your tour, you just don't sit in silence, Chico points out things along the way so it's a tour within a tour! Chico also knew our Son was going to propose to our now future daughter in law and was fantastic! One thing that I will note that was especially nice was not having to worry about any valuables during the tours. Chico kept everything safe and we were able to enjoy ourselves without worry. Our future daughter in law was in Costa Rica for study abroad and he helped her practice her Spanish! If you want a safe, loving, fun person to guide you through Costa Rica and a trip you will remember forever and at an incredible rate go with CHICO TOURS. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! We recommend it!

This is by far the best tour company. It started with Julia’s (Chico’s daughter) 100% responsiveness. I must have asked her a million questions for a month and she always answered within a day and always with friendly responses. Once the 14 of us arrived, Chico and his son Michael greeted us with smiles and beer! We immediately felt like we were in good hands. We had something planned everyday for our 6 day vacation. Some of the tours we did were Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, Tortuga Island and Arenal Volcano + hot springs. Tours always included an ice chest full of water, soda, beers in comfortable air conditioned van. Every morning we looked forward to walking out of our Airbnb and seeing Chico ready with to start the day and show us what Costa Rica had to offer. He has much pride for his country and is very knowledgeable. One important thing we learned was “ Con Chico, no ay problema”, which translates too, There are no problems, when you are with Chico. We ended the week feeling like we gained a family in Costa Rica and were sad to say goodbye as he dropped us off at the airport.

From the beginning they were amazing. We had a million questions before getting to Costa Rica and they answered them all! He made everytrip 10x better. He loves his country and it shows when he driving you around. We learned so much about Costa Rica from him. He made us feel like we were his family. Very trustworthy and full of life. I will definitely come back to Costa Rica to enjoy his friendship. We gained a relative in Costa Rica!!! Gracias Chico por Todo!!!!Pura Vida. Familia Gomez!!!!
