“We have used Gerardo for years. He has provided shuttle service between Liberia, Samara and Tabor. He is always on time and takes us great places for lunch. We’ve done private day trips and Gerardo always stops at wonderful places we would never find on own. The van is very clean and there is a cooler with cold water available. We are already booked for Costa Rica next year and will be using Gerado again.”

Tripadvisor Review

“Gerardo was wonderful. We hired a private shuttle service for an ~ 3-hour transfer from Samara. Not only did Gerardo arrive on time in an immaculate vehicle but by the time we arrived at our destination he had assisted in securing our lodging and activities. I can say with confidence if you contact Gerardo before making any other plans in Samara your trip will be better for it.”

10/10 would recommend and will 100% use this service again! making any other plans in Samara your trip will be better for it.”
