When traveling within
with its diverse ecosystems and magnificent landscapes, being able to enjoy this wonderful culture without “traveling stress” can be realized. Hiring your own bilingual driver and guide in air-conditioned comfort is not difficult at all. After many trips and vacations to
, Beny, our personal driver and has made our time in
the most enjoyable. Beny is agreeable to long daily schedules, often starting early in the morning, for a flat rate daily charge.
The roads in
are quite challenging. Many of these roads are not paved, some are only accessible during the dry season. To complicate these driving issues even further, many roads are not marked, some not marked at all, and many are indicated in Spanish. Many Costa Ricans do speak English, but many don’t, so asking directions can be very challenging if you don’t speak Espanola. A friendly and personal driver and air-conditioned van will offer you greater flexibility that a tour bus will not.
Beny is very familiar with all the areas of
. He can recommend anything that you may be interested in from shopping, dining, points of interest, river boat tours, rain forest areas, even where to discover one of Costa Rica’s greatest treasures: the Resplendent Quetzal. Beny will help you with every aspect of your visit to
, even recommending shopping areas, or aiding you with a menu. He will share with you
’s wonderful culture, including their friendly life style, and (a must try) delicious typical foods. On a recent trip, Beny picked us up at the airport in
, and remained with us for every day of the trip, even dropping us off at the airport at the end of our visit.
Your trip to

“I am a professional bird artist/carver/sculptor, and I had a “bit of traveling anxiety” before our first visit to
. My initial intention to travel to Costa Rica was to further my artistic studies in the many rain forest and cloud forest habitats in the country, but my ultimate goal was to witness and study the Resplendent Quetzal. Meeting Beny, and spending ten wonderful days with him, made this business vacation a true pleasure and highlight in my career. Beny suggested all the areas that he believed would be helpful to my needs from a river tour, rain forest, to a private guide to see the Quetzal in a beautiful “off the beaten path” location in a mountainous cloud forest. Seeing the Quetzal with my girl friend Jen was magical, so much in fact that we became engaged on that spot in the mountains. With his warm and friendly heart, Beny has become a friend, and my wife and I can’t wait to return to
next year. We will hire and spend time with our friend Beny, and let him show us his wonderful country.
