When I initially contacted Zicasso online regarding a South American adventure, a few brief questions were asked and I was referred to  twoTravel Agencies.  One contacted me immediately and asked me a few questions as to what I was looking for and put together some ideas for my review. They didn't exactly speak to me for what I was looking for. Then next day the travel designer of this travel agency emailed and called me. He apologised profusely that there had been some computer issue and he did not receive my request until now.  I thanked him for contacting me but I was already reviewing options from another company. He was very kind.. not the least bit pushy and said that of course it was my choice, but was hoping to ask me a few questions and give me an alternative to think about as this was an important venture and he didn't want me to be disappointed.  I agreed.  And BINGO!!  He got me... exactly with regards to where, level of hotels, private tours, airport pickups... I don't manage itinerary hiccups well and my travel designer did not disappoint.  He was very detailed, he understood the pace I was looking for, and felt out each step of the adventure with me. ( We traveled to Peru and Ecuador for 24 days) If there was something we weren't really interested in, he was quick to offer alternatives. Our travel designer has experienced all of the adventures we wanted to do personally and could give me details and make me feel very comfortable with the choices we made.

This travel company and its staff helped plan and execute a family vacation based on our personal preferences. Even during the trip we were able to make changes based on our preferences. The local guides were key in each location to making the most of the experience. The company representatives were always available in person and by phone to be sure we were comfortable and set with our arrangements. Throughout the planning they were amenable to our preference to have free time for exploration on our own. Even in the latter circumstances the company representatives would offer suggestions and advice so we could make the most of our Colombia travels. The ease of planning, the flexibility of the company's representatives and our local guides, and their consistent attentiveness created a memorable family vacation and a wonderful introduction to Colombia.

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!!!

Our travel planner was so helpful in planning our family's trip to Belize for Spring Break 2020.  And perhaps even more helpful when we decided to cut our vacation short and return to the US as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.  Hopefully we will be able to finish our trip in the jungle someday!  Ambergris Caye was a beautiful place with a lot to do.  Our travel planner worked with us to set up the perfect combination of organized trips and the travelers choice days.  We enjoyed getting to know the locals and loved the vibe.  We definitely will be back and use this travel company when we do!

We had a wonderful time and the trip was seamless. Almost every suggestion by the travel designer at the travel company was excellent - the facilities and activities. The lodges were comfortable with warm, welcoming staff, in attractive locations and the activities provided the nature experience we desired.

This trip to New Zealand was the time of our lives.  We have traveled extensively but never with an agent doing the all nitty-gritty suggestions and arranging.  We are now spoiled.  Our agent listened to our interests and desires and pointed us to activities that might interest us.  We then choose those that were appealling to us and he proceeded to organize the trip.  This included precise information on the mode of transportation to and from each destination activity.  The itinerary was planned and accepted.  While en route, we choose to change a plan and this presented no problem and we were quickly accommodated.

We had a wonderful trip and this travel company did an amazing job of organizing it for us. We had never been to Belize before and the travel designer really listened to what we wanted before putting the trip together for us. The best part of her planning was suggesting the different regions for us to visit. We had picked Belize because we had heard about the snorkeling, but our designer suggested that we should see other regions. She booked us time in the interior, on the coast, and then south. Each region was unique and interesting.The other thing that the travel designer got right after listening to us was the choice of accommodation. The three lodges we stayed at were luxurious and welcoming, but not stuffy. They were perfect for us.Finally, everything was well planned and smooth, down from being greeted at the airport to each transfer from lodge to lodge. We didn't encounter a single problem. However, it was clear that the company was keeping an unobtrusive ear to the ground about our trip and I don't doubt for a second if there had been any problems that they would have dealt with them efficiently.Overall, we were very happy both with the experience that this travel company put together for us and with the service that they provided in making that experience happen.

Fantastic! Our Costa Rica travel company 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. Our drivers to and from the resort were great. The transportation was comfortable and we had plenty of time to stop along the way for pictures, food, rest stops. Plus, the drivers provided great knowledge of the country so we learned a lot. On our way to the resort, our driver Alex even stopped so we could see a group of red macaws. On our return drive, our driver, Tony, made sure we had the opportunity to try some Costa Rican food and drink, agua dulce, guanábana de leche, and tortillas de queso, all delicious.We wanted a beach vacation for our honeymoon and they delivered. The resort in Manuel Antonio was amazing and right on the beach--we could hear the ocean every night as we fell asleep. For our daily adventures, the zipline/canopy tour and horseback riding they arranged for us were amazing. A small group for the zipline/canopy tour was fun and provided plenty of adventure, and a private horseback ride to a waterfall was beautiful and a real opportunity to experience Costa Rican nature.When we return to Costa Rica, we will definitely use this travel company again.

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 honeymoon in Costa Rica was pura vida! It was absolutely wonderful. We really enjoyed the county. It is spectacularly beautiful and so full of life. We loved being immersed in nature and getting to spend time together adventuring through the jungle mountains and beaches of Costa Rica. This Costa Rica travel company made it all happen. Alex and Fransisco were great to work with, from the start to the finish of our trip. They were very responsive to our needs and requested changes. They not only planned a great trip, but supported us the whole time we were there. They were always available via text, which was very easy. A few unplanned things came up and they took care of all the necessary changes for us, even late at night! We really appreciated them, and all their personalized attention. There are so many choices to make when traveling. I am so thankful you referred us to them to take care of it all, and radically lower the stress level of the trip so we could just focus on having fun. We also really appreciated being taken around in shuttles, and not having to drive. Alex the shuttle bus driver was so great, we requested him for three days of transfers.
