|We were at the Fiesta Resort in Puntarena / Costa Rica early in February 2007. We had a great vacation but were initially disappointed with the accommodation. We were first given a room in the oldest building (#1) which was noisy and musty smelling. During the course of the week we were in three different rooms, with the last room being in the newest (#3) which was great. We found Puntarenas to be a good location as it was somewhat centrally located for white water rafting, zip lining and volcano tours, which we did and throughly enjoyed. The staff was friendly & helpful and the food & drink was fine.
I would recommend hiring Juan Espinoza to provide either tour services or taxi services. My husband & I spent a day with Juan and he took us to feed wild monkeys, to La Garden, Grecia, the Los Angeles Cloud Forest, Poas Volcano, and Sarchi among other places. Juan was diligent to ensure we made it to our destinations in good time. Juan was patient to allow us time to explore and not rush us on our outing, he was a polite gentleman, spoke English well and described things along the way and explained customs and life in Costa Rica. Juan can be reached at 506-664-1018 or 506-879-0154.
