First class service from the travel designer at this tour company! She helped plan and organize our trip to Costa Rica.  Having an expert on the ground, especially given the high season/busy travel season and the uncertainty of Covid took all the worry out. She put together a great trip - we loved the Sloth Farm, delicious lunch, and waterfall especially.  Our driver, provided first rate transportation service - we could ask for no one better.  The designer always responded to inquiries within hours, with just the information needed.  We would highly recommend her and the tour company!  Thank you for a wonderful trip.

The travel company, travel planner, did a great job of introducing us to some of the highlights of Argentina on our first ever visit there.  Hotels, excursions, transfers, and in-country flights were all arranged and were reliable.  A few excursions had to altered at the last minute due to weather, beyond human control.  We communicated several times with the travel planner via anApp to make sure all was well.  Our preferences and interests were considered in selecting excursions and planning an itinerary just for us.

Wow. All I can say is WOW. If you're thinking of going to Cuba, GO. If you need a travel planner, use this company. It will be among the most memorable and excellent trips of your life. My daughter and I just returned from 9 days in Cuba. It was truly a life-changing experience. We genuinely got a deep immersion into the culture, the people, the country and the amazing things it has to offer. The agenda put together by this travel team was spectacular. We visited a tobacco farm and learned how to roll cigars and how to smoke them, we had a session with the young dancers at a Dance school, had Cuban cooking lessons, visited an organic farm, a mosaic city, hiked into the rain forest, visited museums and learned so much. I am truly only scratching the surface. The food was AMAZING - far better than I expected. Prepare to skip or share meals because there is so much delicious food. The accommodations were excellent - in family homes but with private baths, breakfast and comfortable surroundings. But the best part of the trip was the excellent partnership planning by the travel planner (and her extremely knowledgeable son). I don't think I ever emailed my planner where she didn't respond within 10 minutes and was ALWAYS flexible in accommodating our needs. Here advice was priceless and I felt so safe with her plans and style. And...I can't say enough about our guide and our driver. They were with us the entire trip, always with a smile, a helpful hand, super flexible and just plain good fun. It made all the difference. Cuba is not an easy trip. The distances are far and the infrastructure is difficult. But don't let that stop you. You can have the best of both worlds through this travel team. Immerse in Cuba but at a comfort level you're used to in the U.S. Be prepared for long distances in a '53 Chevy or the like. There is no other way to see the country. DON'T limit yourself to Havana. We loved Trinidad and Vinales so much. Be flexible...the restroom situation is not like the U.S. but with a little flexibility you can manage that. We didn't drink tap water but bottled water was very accessible and reasonable. The food is unbelievable. Bring good walking shoes, layers for unexpected weather and a flexible attitude. Listen before you "tell". You'll hear the Cuban perspective which is why you're there!!  AMAZING!!!

We had a wonderful trip overall. Galapogos Islands is a magical place. The vacation is an active vacation, people need to be fairly healthy and able to hike difficult terrain. Ecuador can be difficult to move round in due to the high elevation.We would have liked to have had more discussion about the type of vacation we were looking for, what was important to us and to have more options on what to do when we were in Quito. The guide seemed to have a ridged idea of where to take us without discussion, he did not give us the impression that we could deviate from the plan.

Our trip was amazing!  Sonia was wonderful.  She incorporated all our wants and needs.  All the tour companies she used was great.  We saw and experienced so many wonderful things.  There was one tour company that was late and I sent her a message on What's app and she responded right away and letting us know they were late and when the new time was.  Great trip all around.

This travel company did an excellent job. Their planning help assured that we got the most out of our time in Colombia. Their execution was near-perfect. Best of all, they coordinated exceptionally well with friends we wanted to see, in both Bogota and Medellin. For example they made last-minute changes to arrange meeting us at church after early Sunday mass, instead of at our hotel. At our request, in Zipaquira, they turned us over to friends rather than transporting us back to Bogota.Accommodations were excellent. Every tour guide was knowledgeable, interesting, and reliable. They clearly worked hard to please us and make the experience safe, fun and interesting.When there was a political protest in Medellin, the guides stayed on top of the situation so we saw everything planned but avoided any tense situation regarding the protest.

Overall, the travel company and Zicasso have yet again met and exceeded our high expectations. This is I think the third trip/country we have used Zicasso’s ‘experts’ in, and we were not disappointed.   Our trip to Belize was organised and directed by a travel designer who was unfailingly polite, knowledgeable and informed from the outset.  She knew the best hotels, islands, bungalows and villas, and guided us through the planning process with firmness and precision;  this was a Covid interrupted trip, from reserving it in ‘19 to executing in late ‘21, and it speaks to the professionalism and deep domain expertise that the designer, the providers and the  advice all reminded constant throughout.My travel designer also did not disappoint in delivering on the activities.. There was substantial work to do to schedule the diving -both PADI instructions for our Tweenies and refresher courses for my wife and I.  Going beyond the call of duty was the designer's help in assisting the dive shop in locating my Wife’s Naui card from 30 years ago in Australia!  The designer also found maybe the best flats fisherman team and what they were able to not only have our son’s casting off the boat in short order, but we all hooked good sized bone fish and permit.  Finally our ‘ruins’ excursion was coordinated by an articulate and well educated guide who brought to life the ancient civilisation. Again, for something that had been looked forward to with eye rolls from teenagers, we all admitted at that day’s end - ‘really first rate’.  And it’s not the case that we got ‘great’ because everyone was superb.  We met other less fortunate guests of both this resort and others who did not have that guidance on diving or fishing or touring.. we ended up with the ‘best’. It made the trip.Finally, traveling is a little like building a house, you don’t really know the mettle of your contractor or guide until ‘something goes wrong’. Here we had one son who had difficulty clearing his ears - not a problem, and even in super busy Christmas week we had best dive shop schedule an extra private trip to take him down on his own and complete his solo.  Further,  I had to extend my stay due to a quarantine requirement and the Hotel and my travel designer made what might have been a difficult situation downright comfortable.  Problems are opportunities to excel and this team did so frequently

Costa Rica Travel Agent Review: Luxury 5-Day Vacation

Lakisha F.
Sep 05, 2021
Another amazing Zicasso-inspired trip!  This is the second time that I've used Zicasso for a vacation; the first was for a 10-day trip to Australia.It was the most amazing vacation that I've ever had at that point, so when planning a first-time visit to Costa Rica, I knew where to go for help!  Zicasso provided me with a selection of two companies. I described what I was looking for and selected this Costa Rica travel company after seeing their thoughtful and well planned draft itinerary.From our first email exchange, Alex and his brother were consistently responsive to my needs and questions. They were also very patient as I made adjustments to the itinerary! Upon arrival, Alex's staff was there to greet us before we arrived at baggage claim, as promised - and Alex and his beautiful wife met us before departing to our hotel to give us a warm welcome, copies of our itineraries/travel documents, and delicious Costa Rican chocolates!  From there, we were ushered via chartered flight and van all the way to our hotel. The hotel was amazing with top notch views of the ocean, premium amenities, and friendly and attentive staff. Transportation to/from our excursions was seamless and changes (due to weather) were communicated to us well in advance, directly by Alex and his team.  This company bills their packages as 'vacations of a lifetime' and their description is spot on!  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!

This tour company is a top-notch travel service.  From the initial contact I could tell I wanted them to manage my trip to Ecuador.  The itinerary was developed quickly and accurately, with professionalism and friendliness.  Pilar was outstanding.All the logistics were handled seamlessly such as airport pick-up/drop-off, tours, meals, etc.  I traveled to the Galapagos, the Ecuadorian Amazon, Quito and the Avenue of the Volcanoes to Cuenca.  Fantastic!  Highly recommend that any traveler to Ecuador gives them consideration to build the trip of their choice.

The travel company crafted a truly GREAT adventure for our family of seven for both Peru and Ecuador!  We discussed various options that might appeal to ages ranging from two teens (13 and 16), to three adults in the 46-50 range and two 'seniors' (+/- 70); the itinerary met ALL of those interests!  Our travel planner and the travel team in both countries were fabulous ~ not a single 'hiccup' throughout two weeks (even including the ten separate flights during that time).  Each guide was not only knowledgeable about the country and culture, but enjoyable to chat with (as their individual language skills in both Spanish and English were impeccable). QUITE an achievement!

Costa Rica Luxury Nature TourOverall Comments: This is the third large travel project we’ve done through Zicasso. As usual, we competed this Costa Rica company with another Costa Rican travel company. Both put together solid programs. Both were cost competitive. We seemed to click with this travel specialist in a mutual communication and chose them. They listen. They managed all our requests for transport, hotels and excursions in a particularly challenging pandemic travel environment. Sensational job!We planned an 11day luxury excursion in Costa Rica with three major stops; La Fortuna, Monteverde and Manuel Antonio. We wanted to see flora/fauna/wildlife/nature; relax in top notch lodgings with good restaurants; and visit the beaches- - all while avoiding group travel and transport in light of the pandemic. They put it all together: perfectly!Every guide/driver met us on time. Every excursion went as planned (except for the obvious rain challenges in an early arriving rainy season). There were no unexpected costs or charges. They even arranged for our outbound Covid test to be done at the hotel instead of traveling to a crowded clinic or hospital.We’ve had solid Zicasso travel advice in Australia and South East Asia before. This Costa Rica travel company's travel advice in Costa Rica ranks highly with our other 5-star experiences. One of their guides was perhaps the best prepared and most personable guide we’ve had anywhere. He talked history, culture, nature, sports; all in flawless English and was most patient helping us with our Spanish as well.At the bottom line, using this Costa Rica travel company was money well spent and we’ll use them again when we next travel to Central America.

This was my first visit to Costa Rica, largely wanting to see the birds and nature it is known for. The travel company offered a very affordable tour package which got me and my family started in Costa Rica on a very good start. But we still needed to see Costa Rica and experience the tours that were offered. Wow! The travel company did not disappoint. All the tours, the hotel accommodations and the staff that helped us get around the country were exceptional. Our travel planner and her company definitely know who to work with to show travelers where to go and who to connect with to maximize your experience in Costa Rica. And scheduling a little down time to do some exploring on our own was also provided to help us balance our time with whatever we wanted outside of tours. The food, the people, the sites were all exceptional. Yes this was my first trip but now I know it won't be my last. And when I do return I will call on this travel company to help me plan my trip. Thank you to the travel company. Thank you Costa Rica!

Costa Rica is the place to go now!  Just returned from a first-time visit to this great destination.  The key measurement for our family is: will we go back again?...and the answer is a resounding yes.We stayed for eight days.  This is a good time frame, but a couple of extra days would have been good to add.  We flew into San Jose and was greeted by our travel planner and his wonderful wife, then introduced to a long-time company driver who drove us the 3 hours to Arenal Volcano area.  Didn't seem that long, especially since we stopped for lunch along the way.Our stay at the hotel in Arenal was the best hotel that we have been to in Central/South America.  The view of the volcano in the morning was picturesque (search up Arenal Volcano pics, and that is literally what you saw when you woke up).  The hot springs-fed pools were a welcome relaxation each evening.  We did several activities in the area and these were the best of our Costa Rica visit...see details below. After three nights in Arenal, we headed across the lake to meet our ride to Monteverde.  More of a local road trip through the hills.  Adding the lake portion not only broke up the drive, but it also saved a little time overall.  Monteverde has a cooler climate, so bring a light jacket or sweater.  A nice place to visit if you have a couple of free days, otherwise I would say spend the time in Arenal and/or Manuel Antonio.Another couple of hour drive to Manuel Antonio.  Did stop for zip lining at Los Suenos.  Another recommended item to break-up the drive.  Manuel Antonio was smaller and more quaint of a beach town than I expected.  The larger town is Quepos, about  5-6 miles away.  Here is another part where I wish we had a extra day to hang out at the beach and explore the local shops and establishments.Overall, the people of Costa Rica were friendly and welcoming.  Felt safer than any US city.  Never had a problem communicating...most locals spoke pretty good English.  Food was fine, but nothing especially memorable...in fact, the best food was the local casado (look up on youtube).  Can say that everything tasted fresh...from farm to table.Most important tip/recommendation: Go Now!  The crowds were non-existent since post-pandemic travel is just now starting to gear up.  Highly recommend you get to Costa Rica before it gets re-discovered.  It's such a great place that I am convinced it will soon be the go-to Latin American destination.Finally, use this travel company.  Since it was our first time and didn't know the lay of the land, our travel planner was very helpful during the course of our several Zoom calls and answered all of our questions.  The itinerary went smoothly and really appreciated another planner checking in with us along the way, just wanting to make sure we were taken great care of...which we were. Can't wait to get back again to Costa Rica.

Our travel company went above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible honeymoon. From meeting us at the airport (with their sweet mother no less!), to helping us switch excursions when one got rained out, 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. Their drivers, partners, and family will always have a special place in our hearts. No matter what you’re looking for or what you need, they can handle it. Don’t hesitate to book with this group if you’re going to Costa Rica!

Our trip designer and the team at the tour company were amazing!  She was able to schedule a last minute family trip over Christmas to Costa Rica, where we were able to stay at beautiful, unique hotels and experience many different activities.  All of the private transfers between hotels, airports, and excursions were seamless, with no waiting or wondering who would pick us up or take us somewhere. The trip designer was very professional and quickly responded to all of our emails and questions.  She has a wonderful knowledge of the different areas in Costa Rica, especially eco-lodges and adventures for our family that were "off the beaten path."  We would highly recommend the designer and her team to others and we hope in the nearby future to return to Costa Rica.
