Olman planned us an amazing trip in Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Oct 16 - Oct 26, 2019
We would like to thank Olman for the amazing 11 day trip he planned for us with such short notice. Costa Rica has been on our list of places to visit but we only booked the flights 4 weeks before travelling. I was apprehensive about Travelling in October as it is meant to be the rainy season. Olman explained the weather is normally sunny in the morning clouding over in the afternoon. We seemed to be lucky as we only had 1 evening when we had a real downpour, which was quite an adventure.

We had an amazing time in Costa Rica. The communication with Olman during the planning process was excellent. He was extremely responsive. The trip was extremely well planned and well organized. All the transportation and transitions went off without a hitch. All of the hotels were lovely, but Tabacon was the winner. The rooms and grounds were beautiful, especially the hot springs and the breakfast was sumptuous. All of the tours were great and well run but the wildlife tour and turtle... read more
Trip to Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Aug 7 - Aug 13, 2019
This was my first time using KimKim and I was definitely leery. I usually book all of our trips by myself. I have to say though that Adriana, who booked our trip to Costa Rica was wonderful. She answered all of my questions and rearranged our trip so that it fit what we wanted to do and our budget. She was even able to change a pick-up time in the middle of our trip when I requested it. All of the excursions we went on were run by top-notch companies and guides and the hotels she recommended and booked had amazing views. Everything was very smooth! I'd highly recommend her!

Trip to Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Jul 18 - Jul 26, 2019
We made a fairly last minute decision to take our family of 4 to Costa Rica in July. Without enough time to research an itinerary, we are so glad we found kimkim online. Working with our trip planner, Adriana, was effortless and she planned a fantastic vacation for us!
Some comments on the service first. Adriana was extremely responsive. Using kimkim's messaging service, I received texts when she sent updates which allowed us to plan the trip very efficiently. We caught up by phone as well... read more

Costa Rica Self-Drive Adventure - 14 Days · Costa Rica - Jun 29 - Jul 16, 2019
Adriana was absolutely great to work with! Our trip had a rocky start when a delay in our first flight caused us to miss our connecting flight to Costa Rica. That delay in turn made us miss our our first booked trip. Adriana and kimkim rearranged our whole schedule, rebooking hotels and tours. The following day when there was a nation wide truckers' strike, and we couldn't get to the east coast of the country, she rebooked everything all over again! I can't even imagine what we would... read more

Olman did a fantastic job arranging our trip to Costa Rica. We were very happy with the hotel recommendations as well as activities that were pre-arranged. Transportation was flawless.

Trip to Costa Rica · Costa Rica - May 18 - May 25, 2019
Olman was amazing responding to all my queries in a timely manner and changing things in the itinerary based on my daughter’s animal and wildlife requirements!
Our trip, while only 7 days, incorporated so many trips and places. We had an absolutely amazing time and pretty much saw most of the country’s animals in their natural habitats.
Absolutely stunning country and Olman’s help definitely helped us to make the most of our limited time there.

La Fortuna & Monteverde - 6 Days · Costa Rica - Mar 27 - Apr 1, 2019
Our Costa Rica trip was amazing! We had such a great time. The activities were well spaced out giving us time to explore in our downtime. The rides were perfectly structured so traveling was a breeze. The activities were so much fun.
The kayak was really fun. We really enjoy sport activities and it was so nice to get out on the water and view the volcano from another view. It was a bit windy that day but we were up to the challenge. Our guide Pedro was awesome. He showed us different birds... read more

Olman did a perfect job booking an amazing week of holiday in Costa Rica for my husband and son and I. After providing Olman with the cities, the activities, and our budget, he came back with a schedule that fit everything. I was a little worried that I hadn’t yet received any confirmation from Olman one week prior to our departure but Olman reassured me there will be a schedule before our departure. Everything in Costa Rica was right on schedule, the car transport pickups were always 5... read more
Costa Rica Family Vacation - 6-Day Itinerary · Costa Rica - Apr 12 - Apr 21, 2019
Adriana has been always of great support, before the trip. During the trip, however, she was mostly absent (perhaps due to the holiday season?).
During the trip, and on Adriana's absence, we got reactions via whatsapp from another member of the team (also called Adriana), who was, first, unaware of our location (we always had planned to go to Montezuma, and then take the ferry to Puntarenas; she left me me a voice message saying DO NOT take the ferry... to then say 'oh, I didn't know you... read more

So first off, thanks to Olman for his great service. The trip that was planned definitely met our expectations. Below is our point by point review:
Arrival: all good, driver was able to accommodate all of us even though one flight was quite delayed. Overnite stay in the Radisson was fine as well. Early pick-up and xfer to La Fortuna went very smoothly.

Ultimate Costa Rica Honeymoon - 10 Days · Costa Rica - Jan 25 - Feb 2, 2019
We had a wonderful experience booking through KimKim and Adriana for our 10-day Honeymoon to Costa Rica! Adriana was professional, responsive and accommodating. We wanted a mix of adventurous yet relaxing, cultural but touristy, romantic but casual, and Adriana planned THE perfect vacation for us. My only hiccup was not receiving our arrival packets 2 days before our departure, as noted, but someone else from the KimKim team stepped up and responded to our message stating that Adriana out of... read more
Best of Costa Rica in 7 Days: Explore Jungles, Volcanoes and Beaches · Costa Rica - Jan 15 - Jan 22, 2019
This was an incredible trip all thanks to Adriana! I was able to see so much of Costa Rica and enjoy the unique vistas and wildlife experiences that only this country can offer. I feel like I was able to get off the beaten path a little bit and really experience the country. From relaxing in hot springs in Arenal to gliding through the Monteverde canopy on a zipline, to watching dolphins play behind our catamaran on a sunset cruise in Manuel Antonio, Adriana took care of all of the back stage logistics so that I could focus completely on living Pura Vida.
Trip to Costa Rica · Costa Rica - Jan 11 - Jan 21, 2019

This is the second time we have used kimkim and would readily use your services again. Bill

Working with Adreana was a pleasure. She kept modifying the plan based on my comments to get me the perfect trip.

Family-Friendly Arenal and Manuel Antonio National Park- 9 Days · Costa Rica - Dec 15 - Dec 23, 2018
Olman was amazing to work with, he was very responsive and everything he planned for my trip to Costa Rica was exactly what I wanted, from hotels to activities! My trip was filled with activities and fun memories yet relaxing. And the hotel I stayed at had amazing views and service. I wouldn’t be able to plan this trip myself in such short time. I highly recommend Olman!!
nature trip! · Costa Rica - Dec 13 - Dec 18, 2018
Olman was very responsive and incredibly helpful in organising our trip at short notice.

We had a terrific holiday and really loved all the hotels and tours that were booked for us.
Arenal & Manuel Antonio in 6 days · Costa Rica - Dec 3 - Dec 8, 2018
The easiest experience ever! First time using kim kim and would definitely use it again! Adriana was my specialist/travel agent. She was a pro and knew exactly what i wanted to do.
