Great mission, great people, great places to visit -- what more could you want? ACTUAR did a fantastic job. I absolutely loved staying with the rural and indigenous families, all of whom were very warm and welcoming. The families and communities benefit from this type of tourism and share meals, the natural beauty of the surroundings, and local culture. I... More

ACTUAR was wonderful to work with on my family's vacation to Costa Rica right from the start. Because none of the standard packages fit our timeframe, ACTUAR representative Madelyn Castro was really good at thinking through, presenting options, and being flexible. This resulted in a 6-day trip to Arenal, Monteverde, and Jaco which suited our needs. Furthermore, I could consult... More

This past May we enjoyed a great experience in the Guanacaste region of beautiful Costa Rica on a trip organized by Actuar. They made the arrangements for a fairly large group of us and everything went off wonderfully. From the initial planning/reservations to our arrival a day late due to a missed connection. As frustrating as that experience was, our... More

I travelled with a friend for two weeks in May, going from San Jose down to the Ossa peninsula with several stops along the way. Our main interest was wilderness and wildlife viewing, and we also had a volcano hike, a day of whitewater rafting, and a visit to an indigenous community. Our driver was excellent, and the places we... More

We've recently been on a trip to Costa Rica which was arranged by ACTUAR (via a UK based company) and were very impressed with the service. Everything was arranged perfectly, the accommodation and trips were all great, the transfers were all efficient and on time and our driver was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend using this company.

Thank Amanda E
