TRAVELLER REVIEWS
Playa Samara to Liberia Shuttle
Rhoda
March 15,2020
This company was great. We book transportation with them from Liberia to Samara and back. They meet us at the airport with a sign very easy to find Ms dropped us at our vacation rental. When it was time to leave Samara they picked us up and returned us to the airport with no problems. Will use them again when we return. Thank you for being so wonderful
Private Transfer San Jose Airport (SJO) to Arenal Volcano
Shannon
March 09,2020
Our driver was waiting for us when we landed. He made sure we had beverages or snacks for the 3+ hour drive to our hotel. The drive was very nice! We appreciated that our driver was not using his cell phone while driving us - as we saw drivers from many other shuttles on their phones constantly.
NEW! Cook Like a Local Costa Rican Cooking Class & Dinner
David and Carol Myford
February 24,2020
This cooking class experience was very enjoyable. We loved the presentation by Dora and enjoyed the company of another couple and their daughter. The facility is top-notch and the experience was very satisfying. Now we can say we know how to cook an authentic Costa Rican casado!
Private Transfer Cahuita to San Jose
Kurt Quadri
February 24,2020
We used Desafio transport to shuttle our 8 person party to Cahuita and back to Alajuela. They were professional, courteous, and reliable. On the way back we had the pleasure of having Alex as our driver. He was personable, attentive, a very good driver, and is a great asset to your company.
Monteverde to Playa Samara Shuttle Transfer
Chris
February 17,2020
Our driver was most friendly and competent. As we were the only passengers traveling from Monteverde to Samara he offered to stop for pictures or to check out sights at our request. We were able to stop at a fabulous pottery shop we encountered on our trip.
Private Canyoning in the Lost Canyon
Gregg Skerpon

We had a blast canyoning with Desafio! The repelling was great, the hiking was great, the sites were great, and our host Jave was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. 100% would recomend to any future adventurers!

Arenal MAMBO COMBO Canyoning and Rafting
Sherene Schilling
January 12,2020
Our family of four (ages 18 to 44) did the Mambo Combo, and we loved every second. Our guides—Gustavo, Roy, Jilvin, and Jacomo to name just a few—did a fantastic job. They were knowledgeable, professional, and entertaining. We always felt safe in their competent hands. This was one of our favorite experiences in Costa Rica. We would definitely do it again!
Rafting Class 2-3 Balsa River
Michelle
December 26,2019
This was my very first time rafting, and it was AWESOME! Initially, I was a bit reserved because I am aware of the dangers of rafting and was unsure about doing it for the first time in a foreign country. Desafio stays true to their motto, "Be safe and have SERIOUS fun". I felt safe the entire time and would definitely book through Desafio again! Our guide was Noel - he made the ride memorable and VERY fun! There was a good mix of class 2-3 rapids as well as moments of calm drifting where we had the chance to see native animals. Overall it was an awesome trip!
Canyoning in the Lost Canyon in Costa Rica
Nicole
December 17,2019
Absolutely LOVED our guides. Fully professional but also super entertaining, informative and hysterical and they really took care of our group. They take care of everything from pick up to drop off, were punctual, spoke perfect English and the food at the end was delicious. Definitely seem to know their stuff so I felt safe all the way through and they were able to answer all the questions I had for them about the excursion, the safety of the gear, and about Costa Rica in general. The rappelling was so much fun but like previous commenters said, be prepared to get soaked! I will definitely use this company again for more adventures when I'm back in Costa Rica.
