Owner description: We are a company that offers personalized service. After working for 13 years for large tour companies in Costa Rica, we decided it was time to start our own business. We are now able to give our clients the personal service they need to make their stay in Costa Rica a fabulous one. We specialize in packages in the Guanacaste Region but we also arrange tours and packages to other parts of Costa Rica. We would be happy to quote you a price for your customized tour.

We used Maleku Tours for transportation to and from Liberia airport during our stay in Costa Rica. We were very happy with their service, they were prompt and courteous. The van was a newer model with ac. We would definitely recommend this family run business for tours or transportation. Pura Vida!

This family owned and run business doesn't disappoint. Eugenia made us feel welcome from our shuttle ride from the airport to our final moments after 2 full days touring together. The tours were filled with personalized surprise stops to see scarlet macaws flying over an open field to her keen eyes spotting howler monkeys in the trees on our way home. We immediately liked her and loved how she asked other guides for just a few more minutes on the river cruise where we saw so many more amazing things like capuchin monkeys breaking open seed pods and crocodiles displaying their speed. She never made us feel rushed so we were able to enjoy as much time as we wanted everywhere we went (especially in the hot springs)! Every moment was memorable and the meals were delicious (she gave me the recipe for pollo en salsa, a dish we had at a farm that we couldn't get enough of). She also took my phone and captured the memories for me so I could be present. Thank you for a spectacular vacation, Eugenia and Maleku Tours!

We initially booked Maleku Tours for our transfer from the airport but after our initial great interaction with Eugenia, we also booked two full day trips with them as well. We were 4 friends traveling together without kids but we did ask and they do have car seats for kids if you need that. It was so nice to be on a tour in a small van, with only the 4 of us. There was no schedule beyond a pick up time, we were never rushed or told it was time to go and they were beyond accomodating to anything we wanted to do. We stopped at multiple extra places during our tours and we truly felt like part of the family after our few days with them.

We first did the Adventure Day tour with horseback ride, zip line, water slide, water fall, hot springs and lunch. We did an extra drive through the city of Liberia on the way back and stopped for some fresh fruit too. The second day we wanted to see more animals so she recommended the River Cruise tour. It was great as well and she convinced the boat driver to give us some extra time, which allowed us to find a facinating up close experince with some Capuchin monkeys. We wouldn't have seen that if not for her! We pulled over on the drive to check out the cashew trees and even visited a typical Costa Rican house of her friend.

Eugenia knows EVERYONE which was also comforting. We were truly in good hands as she participated in the tours with us, sharing all kinds of fun facts and information along the way, speeding up the meal services by helping in the kitchens when we arrived at our lunch spot that had 3 large buses already there, and taking all our photos for us. We never felt unsure of anything and we truly enjoyed our experiences.

For our transfer back to the airport to depart, her husband picked us up and also could not have been more pleasant. We even ran into their son working at the airport too!

I am sure you can find the same activities with other companies but you will definitely not have the personal family experience if you go with someone else.

My husband and I highly recommend Eugenia at Maleku Tours to assist with any transport, not just tours. She greeted us at the airport on time and with cold bottles of water. When we changed our travel plans and had to be pick us up at 4:15am instead, she didn't hesitate and was there early and ready.

We were blessed to have come across Maleku Tours! For this visit, we used this wonderfully run family business for transportation to and from the airport and our resort. The drivers were incredibly kind and were able to share some fun facts about Costa Rica and the area on our drives. We had such a wonderful time in Costa Rica, and have decided to come back, soon! We will for sure be reaching out to Eugenia again for our transportation and for a tour or two! Eugenia treated us like family. Pura Vida!
