This is the first review I have ever written that doesn't directly involve a sale or purchase of some kind. In Jaime Peligro I met a gentleman called Gary who gained five stars by just being himself. My fiancé and I were looking for information on tours, particularly at night or in the evening in Quepos/ Manuel Antonio. Despite being... More

Good local used book store and great at facilitating tours. We booked our Mangrove tour through Jamie Peligro and had an awesome time. We also booked Kids Saving the Rainforest through him (and again, had a wonderful time). The book prices were reasonable and we brought some back and got a discount on our next batch.

We used Carolyna to book several tours over a few days for our group of 10. She has access to great guides, is easy to work with, and if a pickup was late, she would follow-up to find out when they were arriving. We booked tours with other operators, too, but found Carolyna and her staff to be the most... More

This review is WAY overdue. My boyfriend and I actually travelled to Quepos in June of 2013, Trip Advisor's date menu did not go back that far :) and the staff at Jaime Peligro was extremely helpful. They booked our excursion with El Santuario Canopy Tours (a must do if you are interested in zip-lining), our Catamaran tour of Parque... More

Damien was incredibly helpful and suggested two excellent tours for us - one in the mangroves and one on the catamaran boat tour. Both tours exceeded our expectations. Damien really knows his stuff. Ask him anything and he will give his honest opinion about where to eat, where to go, the weather patterns, etc. The books are reasonably priced. Some... More

Damien was a great help with our stay in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. My boyfriend and I wanted to do a walking guided tour into the national park to see wildlife and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We had Edgar as a guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable with the local wildlife and was able to point... More

Jaime Peligro is a must-stop if you're visiting Quepos or Manuel Antonio. We lived in Quepos for about seven months and just recently returned for a visit, and we made sure to go by the book store. It's conveniently located right in the town center and by the bus station and has tons of great books in many languages, as... More

Need to find something to do in Costa Rica...STOP in here. Great local resource for activities and hotel/restaurant recommendations. They speak English and are very helpful. My husband and I were looking for a ATV tour and they set us up with the best company, www.safariadventurescr.com.

Apart from being a very useful bookshop, it is also a helpful travel agent. If you bare to listen to my story you might find it if not alarming slightly amusing.
