Unos tours inolvidables
No pongo más estrellas porque no hay. La compañia de Jorge en los tours que hicimos inmejorable. Jorge es una persona que te hace sentir comodo, sus conversaciones, su trato atento y servicial. Tan claro y conciso en su forma de tratar que quieres tenerlo como amigo durante el resto de tu vida. Un guía así no se encuentra con facilidad, y Jorge ha demostrado ser uno de los mejores. Paseos a caballo en lugares inolvidables, que montañas, que bosques... Visitas al volcan Arenal, un tour del café, aguas termales donde me relaje demasiado. Bravo!! Que experiencia!!

Turn your good trip into a phenomenal vacation!
We heard about Cooltour from a friend of ours who had recently used them to help plan a trip to Costa Rica. She had so many wonderful things to say about Jorge, her guide that we decided to give Cooltour a call and our friend was right. We met Jorge in San Jose and after he showed us around and sat with us over a cup of coffee we felt like we were sitting with an old friend more than a tour guide. Jorge helped us with food, places to stay, things to do and uncrowded spots full of history and charm. Jorge's Pura Vida attitude and extensive knowledge of ALL of Costa Rica helped make our trip unforgettable. From San Jose to Arenal and all the way down to Manuel Antonio, Jorge was more than just professional and personal, he will be a friend for life.
Cooltour comes with highest recommendations. PURA VIDA!

Escape to paradise - Costa Rica
Costa Rica was a delightful experience. You have many of the sites and sounds of Hawaii, but at a much lower price and less travel time. This is a perfect vacation paradise for honeymoon couples, empty nesters and adventurous travelers. We spent the weekend at Hermosa beach, which is better than most beaches because it is warm, shallow and has beautiful trees to lounge under when you need shade. We took a boat trip to see an cave that can only be explored at low tide. Truly stunning. Then we traveled to Hacienda Guachipelín. Wonderful accommodations and so many adventures. Hot mud bath, hot springs, horseback riding, white water tubing and zip lining. I have all of these elsewhere on my travels, but these were over the top in quality and beauty and VERY reasonably priced. Our guide treated us like royalty. We didn't have to worry about anything. We later visited La Fortuna to see the Arenal Volcano. The Hanging Bridges provide many beautiful tropical vistas with a moderate hike. Cooltour handled our accommodations, adventures and transportation. They did a great job of making our 10 days a perfect winter escape to paradise.

Costa Rican enjoyment
Jay, of Cool Tours, arranged my wife, brother and sister and I a dream vacation. We visited coffee farms, viewed awesome waterfalls, floated down a jungle river and ate delicious Costa Rican food. We took in the incredible surroundings of the cloud forest, rain forest and the coast. We contemplated diverse flowers, birds, monkeys, lizards, etc. One of the most remarkable days was at the poolside of our beach hotel- the fascinating howler monkeys played, scrambled, slept, somersaulted and otherwise gave us a ringside seat for their performance. It was an amazing adventure.
