My father and I were a little nervous about meeting up with someone we had never seen before in another country and really hoping things went smoothly. Within a minute of walking out of the airport, we were kindly greeted by Eduardo. What a relief! On our 2 hour drive to Manuel Antonio, Eduardo was extremely happy to show us... More

Orlando Vargas of MCO tours picked my wife and I up at San Jose airport and we spent six unforgettable days travelling throughout Costa Rica. We started our adventure in Jaco and stayed at Villa Caletas which was recommended by Orlando. After two fantastic days of birding we traveled to Monte Verde doing some birding along the route. We stayed... More

We booked a trip with Marbella Tours from San Jose to Arenal Volcano and The Springs resort. This is a one day tour that leaves from San Jose. We booked this trip through an agent at our hotel. Her name is Jessica Gutierrez. She works for a company called Hotel Beds and her office is at Best Western Irazu Hotel... More

My husband and I were part of Orlando’s first South African group and I agree with everything Jenny scribed - Orlando was absolutely fantastic, he has a friendly disposition and a wicked sense of humour – no “gefuffeling” in the back seat of his coach! He kept us entertained during our entire trip with antidotes, information and we had many... More

Looking through my 2000 plus photos as I am loading them to Facebook, I am reminded of just how well Orlando Vargus planned and executed our group's tour of Costa Rica last month. We were a group of 7 senior -ish pax, his first group from South Africa. When I see the territory we covered, the hotels we stayed in,... More

Our group of 7 (4 older adults and 3 young adults 18-21) just returned from our trip and highly recommend Orlando Vargas and Hernan Sandia. Orlando planned our 12 day trip, incorporating our desired deestinations and activities. We had much interaction during the 10 months of planning to ensure it met our whole group's expectations within our budget. The trip... More

We just used Orlando for a transfer to Puerto Viejo. They were at the airport waiting for us, took us right to our rental property and were there waiting for the trip back. I will use them for our next trip. Two girls traveling alone need reliable help and reliable they were. Look no further...

We do not speak Spanish and when I looked into going to Costa Rica I decided it was best not to rent a car and drive alone. We wanted to see several places in the week we were there and put together our own tour with the help of Orlando Vargus. I contacted several tour groups and liked Orlando's prompt... More
