We contacted Coati on the recommendation of our friends who used them last year and we are so glad we did! I usually plan our vacation activities and did not have the time to do so this year. So, in addition to driving us between Liberia and Arenal and Arenal to Tamarindo, Elsy planned our activities for our stay in Arenal. She was extremely thoughtful in picking activities based on our preferences, with really top quality companies. She was very flexible in altering some activities once we got there. She constantly communicated with us to make sure everything was going well and that the companies they selected for our activities were doing a great job (they were!). It was like having an expert personal concierge service delivered with care and kindness.
We drove with Wilson and his son from Arenal to Tamarindo for the Guanacaste leg of our trip. His van was super clean and well stocked with drinks and snacks. Wilson, who speaks fluent English, provided us a lot of information about everywhere we went. While he was our driver, he was really more of a tour guide and a treasure trove of information about anything you may want to know about the history of Costa Rica, restaurants to visit, etc. It was a pleasure spending several hours with him while we trekked from Arenal to Tamarindo.
I cannot recommend Coati Tours enough. Because their services are in high demand and they are committed to limiting the number of customers they work with at a time, I would recommend trying to retain them as soon as possible. They are forced to turn away business from time to time, which is probably the strongest endorsement of their services.
Wilson and Elsy, thank you very much for making our trip so great, your Chicago friends.
