Some may think us crazy or irresponsible but we journeyed to Costa Rica for Christmas! We used Find My Costa Rica services over a four week period from Dec 11 2020 to Jan 10 2021 for ground transfers (one being to a Pacific coast beach house in Playa Grande) and a local Chocolate Tour, due to Covid-19 we were of course limiting our public activities. We used this service for 7 different transfers. we always found the drivers and guides attentive to Covid protocols on top of just being as friendly as all Costa Rica people are. This being our third trip to the La Fortuna area we have met some of these people before but in better circumstances. The most important issue I want to write about here is from Dec 30 when we heard the Canadian government was putting in place the requirement of having a NEGATIVE PCR test before we could return home. In a panic we contacted FMCR on the 31st and over the next few days they made full arrangements for tests for my wife and I. FMCR provided transfer to and from Ciudad de Quesada where the lab was from El Bosque where we were staying during this portion of our trip. Given a time frame requirement of within 72 hrs before flight (on the Jan 10), the New Year holiday/weekend closure of the nearest lab and that lab being an hour drive away into the mountains we were very anxious and worried. However as with any previous interactions we have had with FMCR or associated companies our worry was unnecessary, all went flawless. Of course FMCR could not guarantee us the NEGATIVE result we needed but they were a large part of our both results being that way through their professional and clean services in our transfers. Thank you Find My Costa Rica and we will see you once again soon.

Such an incredible experience with Find My Costa Rica! My partner and I gave a rough timeline, and a budget, and in return had a completely custom 2 week vacation planned for us with an ideal balance of guided adventure, self adventure, and complete relaxation. Costa Rica literally has it ALL & Find My Costa Rica will help ensure you experience all the best parts! They seamlessly organized airport transfers even when flying in and out of different airports, and all the hotel transfers. They booked our excursions and guided tours of wildlife reserves, volcano hikes, hot springs, etc all with clear and concise communication and also within our budget. All tours booked with FMC were phenomenal; the guides were professional and so very knowledgeable. Thank you for making our experience in Costa Rica so memorable!

We had a large group with ages from 4 up to 85. Find My Costa Rica helped us plan and book all of our hotels and tours. The kids learned to surf and we all did the zip-line. Our favorite part was the Sloth Tour -- Marcos made it so much fun, it was amazing. It is so much easier to have them book it all than getting all the hotels and tours on your own, and the price was a little less than if I had done all the work. One stop shopping is definitely the way to go!
