    Exceptional Costa Rica Transportation & Guides
    Costa Rica Trip Guide helped us with multiple private transfers during our Costa Rica vacation. My husband and I flew into San Jose, traveled to Arenal, Playa Conchal, Monteverde, and back to San Jose. Erick and his team of trusted drivers provided a phenomenal experience each move of the trip. Their knowledge of the landscapes, animals, roads, restaurants, and stops made our travels enjoyable and fun and we learned so much from them along the way. They provide exceptional customer service, are reliable, and have deep knowledge of the country. We look forward to visiting and seeing them again and have already shared their names with multiple friends and family. Highly recommend them and their services!!

    Excellent service
    We used this service to go from SJO to La Fortuna, from La Fortuna to Manuel Antonio, and Manuel Antonio to SJO. The drivers are SO friendly and genuinely want to inform you about Costa Rica. On the way to La Fortuna from the airport, our driver, Edgar, brought us to the one and only Starbucks located on a coffee farm. We were able to get some incredible coffee and see beautiful views. He also stopped for us to see La Paz waterfall. Further, the staff with this company is so incredibly responsive. Every time I email them with questions, they respond within an hour or so. They are so helpful and do everything they can to accommodate your schedule. So grateful for this much cheaper alternative to traveling through Costa Rica. This is definitely the best transportation company I’ve ever dealt with. So thankful!!

    Stress-free transportation in Costa Rica
    I was nervous about my first trip to Costa Rica. You shouldn’t just hop in the first cab or uber like you can in most airports in the US. My family told me about Erick and I’m glad they did. Erick took care of everything. While I was still at the Atlanta airport before the flight to Costa Rica, chatted via text with Erick and he immediately put me at ease. He told me where he would be at the airport, and what to look for. When I exited the baggage claim area, there he was, holding a sign with my name. On the drive, Erick told me about Costa Rica and about the history of my destination in Athenas. After a great visit in Costa Rica, Erick arranged for an early morning pickup to the SJO airport. They made sure I was at the airport in plenty of time. I even had time to relax and enjoy some coffee before my flight. This has been my easiest and most stress-free travel experience anywhere, thanks to my new friend Erick. I will definitely see Erick again on my next visit to Costa Rica.

    This was our 2nd time in Costa Rica and both times we booked the same tour guide Geovanni Rodriguez Torres, I would highly recommended him. Giovanni is very knowledgeable about the history of Costa Rica if we could give him 10 Stars. We would. The best part of it he stayed the whole week with us. He made everything fun and enjoyable. We will be back and we will have Giovanni once again.

A very service minded and extremely trustworthy company, great respect to Eric and the team. Extremely easy and honest communication via WhatsApp.

We were an extended family of 12 (5 small children) traveling from San Jose - Arenal - La Fortuna - Nosara - San Jose. We considered renting cars to drive ourselves, but opted for private transfer and boy are we happy we did. Not only did we save money from going with Eric’s solutions, it also saved us a world of stress and trouble on the sometimes rough roads of beautiful Costa Rica.

The minibusses very very new, and the drivers extremely competent as well as friendly and flexible. We could stop if we saw animals or when the children felt sick at times. Even when I messed up the dates we were supposed to be picked up, Eric found a quick and good solution to compensate for my chaos.

Someone, give this company some sort of prize! Or at least give him your business, so you can relax and enjoy this country. They totally have your bag.

This was one of the best choices I made in planning this whole trip. Thank you so much.

We used Erick and his team, for five long trips, after reading reviews on this site, whilst travelling around Costa Rica, in February and March. We found him to be extremely reliable, very informative and well priced.

His website is also very intuitive and helped me no end in planning our first holiday to this lovely country. Erick is easy to contact, both via email and WhatsApp and I always found that he replied to my queries very quickly. He recognised my phone number when I called him and became a good and trusted, friend to us, as we travelled around, using his private shuttles.

My son's partner needed a lift back from Manual Antonio to San Jose Airport, but he was struggling to get her on to a shared shuttle, so he ended up collecting her in his own car - unbelieveable service. We have no hesitation in recommending Erick's company and if we ever return, we will certainly use him again.

My husband and I go to Atenas Costa Rica to visit one of my best friends who retired there. This was our 4th trip. Each time we have used Erik's shuttle service. Listen up people, you will not, let me repeat will not find any better shuttle service period. Erik and his staff are professional, kind, patient, funny and know the countries history, it has been our honor to use his service and will continue to do so.
Shout out to Mariano, you were awesome. Please use this shuttle service, you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Katherine from Collierville, TN

We booked a shuttle from San Jose to the remote southern town of Pavones (a world-class surfing destination) and we were extremely happy and satisfied with this company's great service. My wife and I are in our 70's and are from New England so we really put ourselves in the company's hands. They were great--we made several changes to our plans and the owner, Erick, made the adjustments immediately without any pushback; we received on-time service; we greatly enjoyed traveling with very friendly and enjoyable driver (Geraldo). We probably will be back to Costa Rica and we know who to call when we decide to return.

For the past 5 years we have used Erik’s Transportation Service

After visiting Costa Rica for several years my Wife and I moved to Costa Rica ( full time) after retirement in 2021 ..

Erik and his crew try to to make your trip go smoothly.. he truly treats you like Family..and covers all the bases …

We have been all over Costa Rica with Family and Friends…( Poas Volcano…..Doka coffee plantation…La Paz Waterfall Garden… La Fortuna .. Jaco/Playa Hermosa.. Lake Arenal…Cigar Factory in Puriscal…..Playa Coco Guanacaste using Erik’s Transportation Service and we have had a five star experience each time

Wherever we go we always try to include the driver.. they are always pleasant… they have local knowledge of the area… they offer a tremendous amount of good information about Costa Rica and the different areas we have visited ..

I would highly recommend using his Transportation Service

I can’t tell you how pleased and impressed I was with Erick and this company as my transportation from San Jose to La Fortuna. I had some unexpected flight delays and Erick worked hard to make sure I got to my destination safely and quickly. He was a treasure to talk with on the ride and I ended up booking his company for my other two transports during my trip after that and all of my drivers were top tier, spoke English well and went above and beyond to teach me about their country. I wouldn’t give my money to any other transportation company in Costa Rica after working with Erick’s team.

Absolutely 1000% recommend!

Excellent customer service from Erick and team from the 1st day I what’s APP’d. I was able to set up reliable transportation to and from my resort. Our flight was delayed several hours and this was not a problem.

The vans were clean, air conditioned and spacious, and the drivers THE NICEST PEOPLE.

I will recommend your service to our family and friends. Pura Vida and we will be back.
