"We had an amazing vacation in Costa Rica! This is an excellent travel company. They listened to our interests and helped us decide the best itinerary and activities. All of the drivers and guides were friendly and professional."
"Our catamaran tour in Manuel Antonio was also great, and whereas the other boats out at the same time had 50-60 people on them, we had just 3 families. Our driver was also very patient in helping me get my Spanish back up to speed."
"We did not have to worry about a thing. The planning and organization of the travel agency surpassed expectations. They picked wonderful hotels for us that made us want to stay forever; the drivers were very friendly and gave us..."
"Every step of our trip, which involved six different destinations in Costa Rica was perfectly planned and executed. We traveled by car, boat, and plane, had different guides at each location with a total of 22 activities."
"Of the three places (Turtuguero, Arenal and Monteverde), we enjoyed Turtuguero the most. It is a remote area with very little tourist traffic. The tropical jungle is prestine and exotic. We had a terrific guide who took us to less traveled canals and spotted so many animals."
"Tachiz was exceptional; they exceeded our expectations. We appreciated their courtesy and consideration for our preferences during the planning."
"This was a truly wonderful vacation, thanks to Tachiz Travel. They were warm, responsive, and kind. They planned excellent vacation excursions, picked beautiful hotels, and were truly available 24/7. I was extremely impressed with their planning abilities and their hospitality."
"From seeing a tapir and giant green sea turtles laying their eggs on the beach in Tortuguero to trampsing through the jungles in Arenal to visiting the cloud forests in Monteverde it is difficult to single out a specific highlight."
"Alex and his crew planned an 8 night Costa Rican trip for our wedding anniversary, and we were able to see three different parts of Costa Rica, staying in the most beautiful hotels. They are timely, helpful, responsive, and very knowledgeable. From arrival to departure, we were well cared for."
"Alex and his brother Francisco took care of everything (from hotel bookings, excursions, transportation) and I was both taken away with their personal communication style and attendance to my needs before and during my trip."
"Every location and activity we visited was memorable. The kids especially loved the whitewater rafting, canyoneering and zip lines."
"Alex and Francisco stayed in constant contact during our planning process as well as during our trip itself. Their plans remained within our proposed budget, and their lodging and excursions were perfect for our family of ten! Ranging from age ten to over seventy."
"We all enjoyed seeing all the animals and birds, especially sloths and monkeys for the grandchildren. White water rafting and zip lining were also a hit! Being surrounded by such beauty and nature is what I will always remember."
"From first contact to our final farewell, Alex and Francisco went above and beyond to ensure our adventures in Costa Rica were well organized and memorable."
"I really appreciated how you worked with us to set up a great trip, and then supported us throughout the trip with such personal and timely service. Thanks again."
"Everything from start to finish was exceptional working with Tachiz Travel. We had never been to Costa Rica before but were interested in experiencing both the rainforest and the Pacific coast and they tailored a plan for us wonderfully."
"Top notch service in every area. They spent ample time on the phone with us in advance of the trip making sure they fully understood our vacation needs and surpassed our expectations."
"Fantastic! Tachiz took care of everything. The owner and his wife met us at the airport with a care package of coffee and chocolate. It was such a nice welcome."
"We felt like the attention to detail before and during the trip was very good. They would check in with us throughout the trip to see if there were any problems or if there were any additional things that we needed."
"I highly recommend Alex and his team for anyone looking for an expertly curated trip to the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Their attention to detail, responsiveness, and superior service is hard to match!"
"All of our drivers, and tours were wonderful and very punctual. They gave us a wonderful honeymoon and we would recommend them to anyone going to Costa Rica."
"This team will do whatever it takes to keep you organized, safe, and relaxed! We are so grateful to have found this group through Zicasso."
"Costa Rica is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places on earth; and their people are some of the nicest, and most welcoming we have ever met."
"I learned so much and we saw our first sloth out in the wild! My favorite thing was the leaf cutter ants! I couldn't stop getting video clips of them."
"The whole trip was absolutely fabulous, but our last hotel: El Parador In Manuel Antonio was amazing."
"My kids left their passports at our first hotel (over 3 hours away!) and Tachiz made sure the passports were back in our hands that night."
"I was truly impressed with the 24/7 communication through whatsapp, anytime I had a question they had an answer within minutes."
"The accommodations at the three locations we visited all had incredible views. We spent time on our patios, watched endless wildlife."
"Great service, I have zero reservations about using this group. They were professionally, timely, knowledgeable and friendly. We felt like family by the time we were done."
"The hotel accommodations and excursions each day exceeded our expectations and gave us memories we will cherish."
"They put together an itinerary which perfectly answered our desires. When we had an issue during our stay, they immediately took care of it."
"Tony and Alex with Tachiz went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful time. From teaching us about local customs and taking us to dinner on our first night, to going out of their way to find us an atm and guanababa. They felt like family."
"The Costa Ricans have mastered moving around the pandemic with a grace that I wish my home country could mimic. There are constant temperature checks, masks required in public places (...)."
"We were very happy with how the trip went, and the support received from Tachiz Travel before and during our travel."
"Not only did everything go as planned, but as they were trying to get people home and deal with all of the cancellations, we never felt like we weren't being taken care of."
"That there was 24/7 phone availability both from the US and in Costa Rica was unexpected and greatly valued."

"Tachiz owners and staff were always very responsive and considerate of all our questions and ideas."
"Adventurous and well planned! Tachiz Travel provided a clear itinerary and organised all transports within the country for us. They were available when called and helpful..."
"It was amazing, extremely well organized, we would not hesitate to use Tachiz again and recommend them for others visiting Costa Rica."

"Everything was smooth and punctual. All guides were outstanding, communicated well and caring. Loved the hotels, transportation and tours/activities."
"Everything flowed very smoothly and we were very happy with all aspects of our trip. The most enjoyable parts of our trip were the adventures we had exploring and experiencing nature."
"Tachiz Travel was tremendous. My wife and I were very pleased with their service, the accommodations they selected and the tours they organized."
"During the trip they checked in several times, sent us thank you Fruit (which was wonderful) and quickly fixed one small problem that came up."
"I left a GoPro in a restaurant and we were moving away from the location to another. Tachiz ensured that was picked up and delivered to us as soon as we reached our new location."
