Due to bad weather in the U.S., we were over six hours late to meet the person that Christopher Howard had sent to the airport to meet us and deliver us to our hotel.  We had figured that due to the late hour, we would just need to take a taxi.  When exiting the customs area, we were astonished to see a woman standing there with our name on the card, as we were told she would be. She had been there all day! She was polite, friendly, and quickly led us to the next person that would take care of us, as she waited for the others that were late too.

Everything that happened from the moment we left customs, to the time were delivered back to the airport at 5:30 A.M. ten days later, went smoothly. Christopher and his staff took complete care of us, and went above and beyond.  Enough cannot be said for his expert knowledge of the country, organization, professionalism, and dedication. He takes you places on the tours that you would never see as a tourist, or on your own. We left the tour with professional contacts, knowledge and information that will make our move to Costa Rica much easier. We cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful experience and would highly recommend him to anyone considering moving or retiring to Costa Rica.
