We loved using Namu Travel, as they made everything super seamless. What could have been very disjointed – coordinating and paying for various surf lessons, board rentals, zip lining, etc, – was all simplified onto our hotel bill. A fabulous experience overall.

Very impressed by the seamless support provided to us by Namu travel during our recent trip. Every person we have come across was professional courteous efficient. Every activity we had planned was well organized. Drivers were on time, guides were knowledgeable and personable and the coordination between local contacts and Namu and our US based travel advisor Amy Nelson efficient. Overall a great experience

Namu Travel knows how to put together a fabulous experience in Costa Rica. Our accommodations, drivers/transportation, experiences /adventures were better than we could have imagined. The amount of time spent in each of the three locations we visited was perfect & the balance between adventure & relaxation was on target.

Namu took care of our airport and between-stays transport as well as our rental car and even changing that rental. Their drivers were great, especially Luis Carlos who gave us his insights into the local cultures as well as the sights. Everything went smoothly; they were always on time. Vehicles were comfortable and clean, and the operators were great on the phone.

We had multiple issues with regard to communication related to logistics. I was most disappointed in this company's organizational awareness which led to consistently being late for planned event pick-ups. Ultimately, we missed one of the most important tours we booked due to their lack of organization and ineffective communication.
Behind the scenes

We seemed to have a great experience with Namu Travel. We did not really have any direct contact with them, but our entire trip was basically seamless. We only had one hiccup during our entire trip. There was a timing discrepancy between activities and we had two wait 2 hours, unplanned. The communication for the delay was poor. However, once we were picked up, the activity leader was super apologetic and could not have been nicer. He provided complimentary pictures of our river rafting adventure and then there was a bag of goodies in our hotel room when we returned - t-shirts and hats and an UNO game for the entire family. Issues happen, and they went above and beyond to apologize. You can't get too upset being on an unforgettable trip in Costa Rica.
