“I tend to review hotels on Tripadvisor, but can’t often be bothered for tours etc; however due to some of the previous comments I have seen on TA about Pura Vida Eh, I feel it would be nice to express my gratitude to Nikki for her prompt and helpful service whilst I organised a trip to the region, and I can strongly recommend to other travellers thinking of using them. I booked 5 activities through them: Puerto Viejo to Fortuna with rafting in Rio Pacuare, Canyoneering in Fortuna, bus-boat-bus to Santa Elena, Selvetura near Monteverde and the onward travel to Quepos. For all except the bus-boat-bus, Pura Vida Eh provided the lowest cost, however I still booked the bus-boat-bus with them as it made my planning simpler and Nikki had been so helpful (plus we were only talking about 3$ extra, as opposed to the 15$ plus savings I made elsewhere). If I had booked the tours direct I would have paid more, plus not received the invaluable assistance Nikki provided which prevented me booking too many activities in one day, and making sure that we caught transport back at appropriate times. The booking process was quite simple, and online links were provided for the individual companies we booked with. It would have been easier just to pay the full amount to Pura Vida Eh and let them sort it out, but you cant have everything! We were also provided with some money off coupons which included places like Soda Viquez in Fortuna (highly recommended even without a discount (we ate there twice). Some discounts are cashback for a few dollars, and I am pleased to say that we received this via Paypal a few days after arriving back home. Very impressed as I was half expecting to have to chase this.”
