• Hi Guys,

    I am so sorry about the late notice! I just wanted to take a second to thank you for the amazing trip I had through you guys a few weeks ago. The entire trip was flawless! We had the best time ever and really appreciate the effort you guys made to make our trip one of the best we’ve ever had. The hotels were amazing as was the transfers to and from the airports and the ease of getting and dropping off the rental car was great as well!

    Next time we come to Costa Rica we will definitely reach out to see if you guys can assist in the trip planning!
    Thanks again!

  • I would like to thank Kathya Calderon at Travel Excellence for her friendly and professional service during my recent trip to Costa Rica with my daughter.

    During the first couple of days we decided that rather than maintain our original itinerary we would hire a car and do some independent travelling. This involved cancellation or rescheduling of hotels, transportation, booked activities and an internal flight, all at very late notice.

    Despite this Kathya was most accommodating and when it came to reinstating some of the accommodation and activities she was again there to help.

    Even after the trip, when paid for rafting photo’s hadn’t arrived, Kathya was able to rectify the situation.

    As a director of an insurance industry organisation in London I know how important it is to provide good customer service.  My experience of Travel Excellence was that the service was more than good… it was excellent!

    Congratulations on running such a professional business.

  • Hi to all of you at Travel Excellence! I just wanted to say another HUGE thank you to all of you for the most amazing trip to Costa Rica. It’s been on my wishlist for years and it certainly didn’t disappoint! My journalists loved it too – I picked a few real wildlife enthusiasts and everyone went home happy after some excellent viewings.

    I discovered that all the best nature spots happened right at the last minute for me. Just when you think it’s time to give up finding a particular animal or getting a good photograph, that’s when they’ll turn up. I managed to get some good sightings of crocodiles, scarlet macaws, sloths and squirrel monkeys right at the last minute – and we even had a small pod of dolphins keeping us company on the boat journey back from Osa.

    Thanks Guido for putting together a perfect programme for the journalists – they’ve all emailed me to say how much they enjoyed the trip and it was the perfect balance of activities and down-time.

    Thanks Marco for engineering my extension to Casa Corcovado – this was a real highlight for me and I can only imagine just how many boat trips it took to get all the building materials there to build it in the first place!

    Thank you CARLOS for having such a great team who are such a pleasure to work with – including Paulo who looked after us and Henry who was with John but guided me for a 200 metre stretch of the road outside the Parador Hotel and then joined us for lunch along with Hilda before we flew home.

    I’ve got a friend flying in to Costa Rica today with his young family – he emailed me last week to ask for some advice on what to do and how to organise everything with Rainbow Tours.
    I’ve got more friends coming out later in May so I’ll do the same with them!

    I’ll share the results from the trip with you in due course!

    Best wishes and thanks again,

  • Hi Cindy.

    Thank you for everything.  Hotel is absolutely amazing. We just back from snorkeling tour. It was reschedule from yesterday. It was great.  We are using small beach  which is near hotel. Short walk and you in the paradise. The little bit rocky seafloor  but it’s OK for us.

    We still don’t answer  on the one question.  Why we came to Costa Rica only now, why we didn’t do it many years ago. We are leaving Parador tomorrow. I will try to send my clients to Costa Rica and will refer you.

    Thanks again  and keep it touch.

    Best Regards, Alex

  • All transfers went exactly as planned.
    Drivers and cars were waiting for us and arrived on time, and most of the time they were early.
    The cars were clean and stocked with snacks, and the drivers were friendly and helpful.

  • Cindy,
    We had an absolutely amazing time in Costa Rica. It is a beautiful country, and we plan to return as soon as we can!  Travel Excellence is a wonderful company, and we are so grateful for your help and the kindness of every guide we met along the way. 

    Pura vida!

  • Hi Guido

    Thanks for everything you did to make our Costa Rica trip truly AMAZING. The hotels were spectacular and each location so different from the last. The Travel Excellence drivers were very professional and friendly – we especially enjoyed Danny’s company on those long drives J. All the arrangements were perfect and we can’t thank you enough. I have posted a note on your Facebook page and also on mine – I have many travel agents who are my FB friends so hopefully this brings you some good leads for future bookings.

    I really want to go back again to CR before too long – and this time we will bring our son who is 20 and studying for a degree in Environmental Science. He would love Costa Rica especially Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge. I’ll let you know when that is and hope Travel Excellence can help us with the arrangements.

    I had no idea Costa Rica was so beautiful and diverse. I feel there is so much potential to grow the number of US travelers to Costa Rica, all the people we met were so friendly and it’s really easy to travel there due to the time zones, currency, language and great air connectivity. I am so excited about the destination that I am even thinking about trying to find a new CR client to represent in the US!

    Thanks again, I will do my best to spread the word about Travel Excellence and Costa Rica.

  • Dear Owner/Manager,

    We recently visited Costa Rica on a press trip, organized by the ICT. One of your employees, Henry Porras, was assigned to us for the trip and he was simply outstanding in his service and amicability. It was the first time Henry dealt with journalists doing a dive feature and he was quick to understand the schedule of the divers and what we were trying to achieve for photography.

    I wish to commend Henry Porras and Travel Excellence for being such hospitable and reliable hosts and helping us to achieve our mission in the limited time we had. This feature on Costa Rica and the diving in the Gulf of Papagayo, would be published in the next few weeks and we would send copies through the ICT.

    In the meantime, you can have a look at some photos we have been posting on our FB page, from our visit to your lovely country. Feel free to “share” any of our photos on your own business page, to help us spread the word about Costa Rica’s beautiful underwater world.

    Thank you for showing us what “travel excellence” is about and how appropriate a name it is for your company.

  • Glenn,

    Cindy and I arrived back in Denver early this morning, but just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had and how wonderfully Travel Excellence once again took care of us. Every little detail took place exactly on time, the accommodations and activities once again exceeded my expectations and I had high expectations from traveling with Travel Excellence previously! I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and for the excellent itinerary. Cindy and I have fallen in love with your beautiful country and your countrymen and hope to get back on a regular basis and we wouldn’t think of coming down without the expert guidance of you and your company. The Parador and the Paguare Lodge were just fabulous. If ever you need a recommendation for your company please don’t hesitate to use my recommendation.

    Best wishes,

    Roger Shultz, USA - 01/03/2014
  • Hi Carlos,

    I just spoke with my clients and I want to thank you so much.

    They loved it and everything worked out excellent. They really enjoyed the program you made for them.

    They were able to see so many places and do so many things. They liked the mix with adventure, nature, beach and sometimes even luxury in a Jacuzzi.

    I really would like to go to Costa Rica and find out for myself. I think I would be able to send even more clients to you then.

    Best regards,

    Tina Vestin, Sweden - 01/02/2014
