    Free Signature Beverage Package

    Do you know if Cappuccino or Latte is included in the signature beverage package? I did not see it listed on the menu.

    Odyssey Tours??

    We toured with this company most recently in March 2013 during a cruise stop. It was a wonderful tour with an expert guide! We were met on the pier as planned - Odyssey Tours was early. Our guide, Juan, was extremely knowledgeable and the driver, Denis, was very professional. Juan accompanied us through Manuel Antonio Park as well, constantly pointing out wildlife on the way. We saw bats, sloths, 3 kinds of monkeys, a basilisk, iguana, lizards etc. He constantly was aware of the time and made sure we would cover everything planned. Lunch was at a family-run restaurant. Delicious local food was served (our orders had been taken in advance). It was very convenient that we could pay with either credit cards or cash. It was an excellent day! This is our third time using this company and we will continue to contact them whenever we are in Costa Rica.

    Odyssey tours

    Odyssey Tours are the best! In November our family (4 adults and a 7-year old child) had a great holiday in Costa Rica. Since I had met Diego on our last visit to Puntarenas on a cruise, I decided to contact Odyssey again for our needs this time. Alvaro was extremely helpful in suggestions for accommodations as well as activities. He answered all my e-mails very promptly. Alvaro and Diego and their dad were wonderful guides in our travels. They took us from San Jose to Arenal (where we stayed for 2 days) and then on to Tamarindo (for 7 days at Hacienda Pinilla). They then took us from Hacienda Pinilla back to San Jose. Also, when I was a little concerned since we were arriving at night, they offered to pick us up at the airport and drive us to our hotel. We agreed on the rates before we left home and they were very reasonable. During each of these trips we did sightseeing. They helped load and unload our luggage and stopped at wonderful restaurants for meals. The van was very comfortable! Communication was no problem. If and when we go back to Costa Rica, I will contact Odyssey again and highly recommend them for all travellers.
