STILL NOT SURE WHY MAKING TOUR RESERVATIONS THROUGH PURA VIDA! EH? INCORPORATED IS A BETTER CHOICE THAN RESERVING TOURS ELSEWHERE?

See for yourself what we have to offer. We argue that we offer advantages to booking day tours direct through tour operators or through other third parties such as hotels and travel agencies. Here’s why…


MONEY

The Pura Vida! eh? advantage…
– Travellers save money by accessing our discounted rates for Costa Rica day tours. No one beats a Pura Vida! eh? discount!

If making your own day tour reservation elsewhere…
– Travellers most often pay full price for tours, services, and hotel stays.

 “I booked transportation and tours through them. The discount they get you is just one of the many perks – I mean if you know you want to go on a specific tour and booking through pura vida eh saves you money, why not? Its cheaper to book through them than to book through the companies themselves or through a hotel.” C.L., New York City, New York, USA


VARIETY

The Pura Vida! eh? advantage…
– Travellers have the ability to select from our list of recommended and approved Costa Rica day tours
– We recommend a variety of diverse tour operators and showcase day tours run in multiple geographic areas of Costa Rica. Travellers can mix and match various day tours offered by different companies.

If making your own day tour reservation elsewhere…
– Travellers are limited to the day tours provided by the tour operator, hotel, or travel agency that they book their vacation through, as well as the day tours located in the area(s) of Costa Rica where the booking company operates.

“I cannot say enough how fabulous my experience with Pura Vida! eh? was!! We were 9 people traveling together with a ton of complicated logistics and all kinds of different transportations and activities and everything went off without a hitch. All of their suggestions were top rate, every car, every plane flight and every activity was just perfect. I would use them again and again!!!” – M.W., Los Angeles, California, USA


SERVICE

The Pura Vida! eh? advantage…
– Travellers have access to the Pura Vida! eh? team before, during, and after their trip. Pura Vida! eh? is available to help guide travellers throughout the tour planning and execution processes to ensure the best possible Costa Rica experience.

If making your own day tour reservation elsewhere…
– Travellers must communicate with each and every individual tour operator they choose to book a tour with for their vacation.

“They went above and beyond to help us setup the tours on our terms and our schedule. And the discounts they managed to arrange were better than anyone else. They would respond to my emails usually the same day and can really hold your hand if you need it.” – B.B. Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA


TIME / HASSLE

The Pura Vida! eh? advantage…
– Travellers can quickly and easily build their vacation with respect to day tours either with our assistance or on their own via our website resources and discount database categories.

If making your own day tour reservation elsewhere…
– Travellers must make each day tour reservation separately. Building a trip itinerary would involve contact and correspondence with multiple companies–an unnecessary waste of time!

“I used Pura Vida! eh? to book 4 separate tours and it could not have been easier! They walked me through the entire process and was there to answer all of my questions about transportation and excursions. Because I booked everything through them, once I arrived in Costa Rica all I had to do was relax and enjoy my vacation. Pura Vida!” – G.J., New York City, New York, USA


SECURITY

The Pura Vida! eh? advantage…
– Travellers can rest assured that all of their trip details have been taken care of. Pura Vida! eh? maintains records of each reservation and confirmation, and we are available to assist travellers with reservation changes/cancellations if necessary (this is extremely important in situations where a language barrier exists between travellers and tour operators).
– Pura Vida! eh? promotes only the best tour operators in Costa Rica. Travellers know that their reservation will be maintained and that they will not have to worry about unprofessional tour operators misplacing reservations. We also eliminate the risk of travellers losing money by making a reservation with a non-existent company (strangely enough, this can happen to travellers when they are not careful)!

If making your own day tour reservation elsewhere…
– Travellers are solely responsible for their reservations without expert advice as to which companies to trust or what to do if a reservation is lost or needs to be changed/cancelled.

“Even after changing plans several times, everything was handled expertly and perfectly by pura vida eh. We received the itinerary clearly set out with all the vouchers prepared. When we needed to change plans during our stay, just an email away, they made the necessary re-adjustments where necessary. We couldn’t have done it so successfully without their help. Certainly took the headache out of the planning.” E.S., Jordan Valley, ISRAEL
