I am so grateful to Kim kim . They truly took the stress out of my trip to Costa Rica . I knew it was a difficult country to traverse but wanted to see as much as possible. The team at KK helped plan 9 different locations over a 2 week period . They even picked us up from our 1st week planned by ourselves in Nosara so we didn’t have to worry about transport . Every driver / shuttle bus was courteous, on time and sometimes even offered humour and added facts about Costa Rica along the way .... read more
Well planned and well executed! · Costa Rica - Apr 11 - Apr 24, 2022
First of all, our many many thanks to Olman for organizing our trip and looking after us along the way when we had any inquiries!!!
We enjoyed Costa Rica thoroughly in spite of a lot of driving, we had time to rest and discover each area we went to.
I would highly recommend Tifakara Boutique Hotel as the room and staff were lovely and the chef outstanding! We wouldn't recommend the El Establo Mountain Hotel. Although the grounds are beautiful, the rooms had paper thin walls and... read more
Costa Rica pacific coast + volcano (9 days) · Costa Rica - Apr 29 - May 7, 2022
I’m usually very sceptical about booking vacation packages, but i have to say that i was really impressed with Randall and his service!
Whenever i go somewhere i’ll always look up top things to do, things to see, places to visit etc… Costa Rica seemed to have many top attractions depending on if you’re going to be staying on the Caribbean side vs the Pacific side. Randall helped us decide & pick hotspots that fit what we wanted to do.
We went right between the transition from the dry... read more
KimKim is perfect for a stress-free Costa Rica trip · Costa Rica - May 1 - May 13, 2022
We had Pablo from Arenal Star pick us up from the airport, show us around, and take us on tours the first few days of our trip. He was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. He was wonderful! He brought us delicious fruit he grew himself, including a pineapple that took two years to grow! He also knew the best sodas to take us to eat. He had his friend, Victor take us on a hanging bridge tour that was amazing. We had a private tour, so could go slow , be quiet, and actually see animals... read more
First Trip in Costa Rica · Costa Rica - May 6 - May 9, 2022
We enjoyed the welcome arrival with Roy, our Driver. The resort was great, very relaxing and food at the bar especially the pizza was something we will remember.
The coffee tour was very informative and fun with Rafael. The hiking at Tenorio National Park was ok because we thought we are also going to Celeste River but we didn't. read more

We had a fantastic time in Costa Rica thanks to Diego. He had planned out a trip for my wife and I, and we paid for it with a credit card. 10 minutes later as we were filling out the forms on Kim Kim’s website we noticed that our passports expired the previous month. We called Diego and he managed to put a hold on the hotels. We received an expedited passport on a Monday and called Diego that day and he rescheduled the whole trip that day and we flew out on Tuesday. The trip went smoothly in spite of the last minute preparations. We can’t thank Diego enough. Pura Vida!
Great trip, beautiful scenery fun Activities · Costa Rica - May 1 - May 6, 2022
Great trip, beautiful scenery with lots to do. Very affordable especially if you use cash.

The Hanging bridges in Arenal experience was great, Marcos was a very knowledgeable guide of all the animals and very enthusiastic.

CR Family trip April 2022 · Costa Rica - Apr 15 - Apr 28, 2022
Over all a very good time for us, the Whitewater rafting with Desafio was really well done and lots of fun the guides where top notch. We loved La Fortuna and really enjoyed staying at "Arenal Springs" a really amazing hotel/resort and the hanging bridges. Good times ziplining at Monteverde and the Poco a Poco.
Beaches, Monkeys and wildlife in Manual Antonio where a highlight of the trip.
In hindsight we would not have done the night walk with Terra Travel and I might have tried to... read more
Diego planned us an incredible trip to Costa Rica! · Costa Rica - Apr 6 - Apr 17, 2022
Diego did such an incredible job planning the girls’ trip to Costa Rica my best friend and I went on earlier this month. He was incredibly responsive the entire time (including when we had real-time questions while we were in Costa Rica), and put together an itinerary that was perfect for us!! It was SUCH a relief not to have to plan anything ourselves and to know that everything was taken care of (especially transportation). I would 100% recommend Kim Kim (and Diego!) for anyone who is... read more

Charlotte was awesome, she created an itinerary which met our needs with a 7 yr old kid and we were yet able to cover a lot of activities including a dinner with a local Costa Rican family, which was the highlight of the trip!
Charlotte was easily reachable on text whenever we had any questions during the trip and even prior.
We wouldn’t have been able to explore and enjoy CR the way we did , if it wasn’t for Charlotte.
A true professional and an expert at what she does! Would highly recommend her to anyone!!

Hotel selection was perfect. Best hotel was Naraya Springs, Finca Rosa Blanca and Tulemar were a close second. The Belmar was just OK, but, not great. It would be good to suggest to travelers that distances are great and the ride between points is 3-4 hours in less than great vans. Bottom line-allow more time in each stop than we did. Hanging bridges was fantastic but rather arduous for a person with compromised knees or hips. It is not flat walking. Cloud forest would be better if... read more

Diego truly did an *incredible* job planning our trip. He made the whole experience seamless, and whenever we hit any snags (which were few and very minor), Diego's communication was consistently responsive and helpful, and he always got things back on track immediately if needed. The activities he guided us to were amazing experiences and the transportation was just so easy! We loved all three locations (La Fortuna/Monteverde/Manuel Antonio) and were absolutely DELIGHTED with each place... read more
Great Family Trip to Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2022
I can't say enough good things about the people of Costa Rica - they are friendly, happy, and proud of their country. Most spoke English, but were very patient with our Spanish, which my 2 high schoolers had fun practicing. The scenery and wildlife were great and the food was delicious.

Our trip was absolutely lovely. Olman did a great job of working with us during the planning process. He listened to our needs and found just the right properties. We did not get a final itinerary until 36 hours before we left. I am not used to such a short timeline. I have used KimKim before and have gotten our final itinerary at least a week in advance. It made me very nervous and did not allow me to look at the day trips to know what to pack etc. Makanda by the Sea (which Olman had highly... read more

Amazing trip for 2 animal lovers! · Costa Rica - Mar 11 - Mar 20, 2022
We had an absolutely fantastic time in Costa Rica. My daughters (ages 7 and 9) loved everything about the trip. The Arenal, Monteverde, Manual Antonio itinerary was perfect -- we felt like we got to see a lot of biodiversity in a relatively short time. The visit to Proyecto Asis, the animal rehab center, was a highlight for our animal lovers!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Brittany. She crafted an itinerary that worked really well for our family, and once we were on the ground in Costa Rica, everything worked seamlessly.

Charlotte collaborated with us to customize the entire trip per our requirements and budget and took care of all planning, bookings, events, guides including vaccine testing during a peak travel season. Charlotte is very knowledgeable about Costa Rica and helped us explore, enjoy Costa Rica at our pace and liking, and managed to organize, fulfill some unique requirements for our family. she is super... read more
A wonderful perfectly planned 8 days in Costa Rica! · Costa Rica - Jan 4 - Jan 11, 2022
What a wonderful 8 days in Costa Rica for our family of 4 (including 2 teenage girls)! Because of the impeccable planning and support provided by Adriana, the actual trip turned out to be so much better even as compared to what we had anticipated.
Planning the trip took multiple back & forths with Adriana over a few weeks - given our specific interests, constraints as well as the changing COVID situation. But Adriana was always patient, resourceful and prompt in getting all the questions... read more
Great Experience working with KimKim and Randall · Costa Rica - Dec 26 - Jan 3, 2022
We booked a trip to Costa Rica through KimKim using Randall. He was amazing, and the process of setting up and managing the trip was great. We made several changes to our group and our itinerary throughout the process - including while we were in Costa Rica - and Randall handled everything professionally and quickly.
We did a river nature tour on Cano Negro, which was amazing - although it helped that we were the only people on the tour. Our driver for the day, Daouren, was also a tour... read more
Randall put together a trip tailored for our likes and dislikes! · Costa Rica - Dec 26 - Jan 8, 2022
Randall provided insider advice on Costa Rica, a country I struggled to piece together things online. He gave a great itinerary for my friends and I based on our likes and dislikes, including great lodging, in great locations, and with activities we got really excited about. It's like having a family friend create a perfect insider's trip FOR YOU. Recommended!
The trip was well planned, with a few nuances · Costa Rica - Dec 24 - Jan 1, 2022
The trip was well planned, but it would be nice to know in advance which tours were private and which were small group. Also, in terms of our itinerary, it would be better if we had the hot springs visit on the evening that we arrived in La Fortuna rather than the next day when we also had a bunch of tours. That would give us more time to enjoy the resort and provide dinner. The fact that the La Fortuna hotel had no restaurant aside from breakfast was a bit of an issue without a car.... read more
Paradise! · Costa Rica - Dec 25 - Jan 5, 2022
Everything was fantastic! Olman did an incredible job answering all my questions about places to stay and excursions to take. Every detail was planned and made the trip stress free. We had an incredible room at each of our destinations and I would credit Olman in making that happen. I highly recommend using KimKim. It made traveling to a country we weren't familiar with very easy and comfortable. We are very pleased with everything!! read more
9-day Costa Rican Natural Wonders · Costa Rica - Nov 15 - Nov 23, 2021
In Arenal/Fortuna we took a Traditional Cooking Class at the Arenal Vida Campesina, a family-owned organic farm, where we learned to cook "verduras salteadas con pasta de achiote" over a wood-fire stove. We hiked (Canoa Aventura) and rafted (Costa Rica Descents) at the Arenal Volcano and la Fortuna Falls. The Tabacon hot springs with dinner was an amazing, relaxing experience.
Ziplined and hiked the Cloud Forest hanging bridges; and took a Night Walk (Selvatura Adventure Park) in Monteverde.... read more
Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Dec 19 - Dec 26, 2021
Chris and Randall planned an absolutely fantastic trip for my father and me. We did activities that the both of us enjoyed, and we appreciated still having flexibility during the trip. The trip had a balance of everything; hiking, wildlife, food, culture, beaches, and relaxation. read more

What a beautiful country filled with the nicest people on the planet! Diego helped our family plan a memorable trip to Costa Rica. We trekked through the rainforest, swam in the waterfalls at La Paz, zipped lined for forever (terrifying but incredible), walked around the Arenal Volcano and ended that day at the Tabacon Hot Springs (so awesome). Our last three days were at Samara where we swam, kayaked and snorkeled on the most beautiful beach (Playa Carrillo). Our guides along the way--... read more
What an amazing trip! · Costa Rica - Dec 19 - Dec 28, 2021
We had a wonderful trip to Costa Rica planned by Olman (through KimKim). From start to finish the whole experience was easy and seamless. Olman was extremely responsive to our requests during our planning and made every modification that we requested. When we were on our trip, every reservation was waiting for us without any issues. KimKim and Olman made this trip absolutely stress-free for us.
First, our driver Roy. We decided to use a driver for our trip so that we didn't have to deal... read more
Best Vacation Ever! · Costa Rica - Dec 19 - Jan 2, 2022
Our 14 day trip to Costa Rica was the best vacation we have ever had! Diego planned a trip that had a perfect balance of fun, adventure, relaxation, beauty, and learning! He was very easy to work with during the planning stages - and very kind and affable. Diego was also very accessible and responsive during the trip. I would highly recommend KimKim for planning your next trip and for working with Diego if your plans take you to the incredible country of Costa Rica! read more

Everything went smoothly. It was nice to have someone overlooking everything.
Highlights were the day tour in Manuel Antonio, canyoning, white water rafting and surfing lessons.
All drivers were on time
1) aggressive passing and driving from Monteverde to tamarindo (I didn’t complain but was very nervous)
2) hotel in tamarindo was right beside night club. Could not sleep at all until after 1 am.
3) night tour in Manuel Antonio was disappointing and our guide Carla was scared of spiders.

This was just an overall incredible experience for us. Diego really listened and set up an extraordinary 7 day trip for our family. It was an outstanding blend of fun, culture, relaxation, and excitement.
There was one little hic-up with one of the drivers, but Diego and the team responded very quickly... we didn't miss anything.
My 7 year old daughter could not have enjoyed it more. We'll be going back and will trust Diego with all our plans. read more
Trip was as planned · Costa Rica - Dec 16 - Dec 24, 2021
Trip was as planned. All scheduled transfers showed up within (10 to 20 minutes) of the scheduled times. Organization of the trip was easy with Alberto.
As far as the trip itself, Costa Rica is a great place to visit, however; going from place to place is taxing. Our normal car ride was 3+ hours. This was expected for the places we choose, however; looking back on it we spent too much time getting from place to place and not enough time seeing relaxing on our vacation. For a week long... read more
Amazing vacation through kimkim! · Costa Rica - Dec 18 - Dec 26, 2021
What an amazing vacation through kimkim! Right from airport pick up to drop off and everything I’m between we had the best experience at Costa Rica. The outfitters they arranged for the activities such as zip lining, canyoning & rafting were perfect. A special mention to Olman who was our advisor. He’s been nothing but awesome! We had some changes to itineraries, flight cancellations etc and he helped our group throughout!
Would Highly recommend kimkim for anyone looking for future trips!... read more

The Best Honeymoon Ever · Costa Rica - Dec 10 - Dec 19, 2021
We trusted Alberto, Diego (with GWA, who will be one of your main contacts once you're in CR), and KimKim as a whole with our honeymoon, and they knocked it out of the park. Booking everything was seamless, as we were able to adjust lodging and activities to fit our desired budget and pacing of the trip. Alberto was exceptionally responsive and accurate with his information. Every tour guide, every transfer/ride, and every hotel/resort were exactly what we'd hoped for. We ended up with the... read more
Amazing Trip! · Costa Rica - Nov 29 - Dec 6, 2021
He was fantastic! Planned an amazing trip for us that kept us busy but also had some downtime to enjoy and relax. The selected tours were top notch and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to see the best of Costa Rica!
The best customer service during a challenging time · Costa Rica - Dec 1 - Dec 15, 2021
This trip was rescheduled twice due to the pandemic. Thankfully kimkim and Yenyi took care of everything for us, even making changes to our excursions while we were in Costa Rica. This was a complicated trip and throwing in the pandemic further complicated it. This would have been overwhelming had we had to make all of the changes ourselves. We highly recommend kimkim for their excellent customer service during a very challenging time. Thank you! read more
The trip of a lifetime in Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Nov 20 - Dec 2, 2021
We had an amazing time during our days in Costa Rica. Our local specialist, Diego, did an awesome job planning our trip, all our days and activities. Prior to going, he was always available and patient answering our questions and adapting the trip to our preferences and needs. We lost our connection flight and consequently our first day in Costa Rica, I alerted Diego and he was super fast in answering and adapting everything, and we ended up only missing a small activity at the first place we... read more

We really really enjoyed the trip that Olman set up for us! He listened to our needs and asks and executed everything so well!
Orlando, Alberto, Minor, Andres are just a few of the many great people/guides we met on our trip! Thank you so much to them.
One of the most authentic places i have ever stayed · Costa Rica - Nov 11 - Nov 16, 2021
The trip was great, we stayed at amazing hotels and had very good activities in general.
We stayed in an absolutely beautiful treehouse that was chosen by Diego.
I think the follow-up during the trip could have been better, and the details in the trip guide were not as accurate, for example, in one activity that included swimming it wasn't stated that we should have brought swimming suit!

Thank you kimkim and our guide Olman. We had a wonderful 10 days trip to Costa Rica. Our guide worked with us with in a very short period we had and planned any amazing vacation. We had the best hotels and best adventures. Just as we expected.
