PLANNING ADVENTURE TRIPS:
Mario (contact below) can plan trips and transportation for you at a reasonable price. He generally goes with his groups and if he is busy, he will set up the trip for you with another great guide. My experience was very positive. The trips generally consist of a 1.5 hour drive to the lush foothills western Costa Rica and then options to river raft, zip-line, horseback ride, and mud bath. Contact Mario Corea at: transchevez@hotmail.com

SURF-SHOP, SURFING LESSONS, & RENTALS:
Check out Kelly’s Surf Shop. Everyone speaks excellent English and knows a lot about Tamarindo. Prices are excellent and they are kind and helpful to beginners and can answer questions about great spots for experienced surfers. puramar.com

TRANSPORTATION:
For trips to and from the airport, I’d recommend contacting Mario Mario Corea at transchevez@hotmail.com Mario’s prices are equal to or better than taxi’s and he can tell you about Adventure Trips and plan them for you. Mario does pick-ups at the local airport and in San Jose.

INFO ABOUT MY HONEYMOON VIDEO:

Starring:
* Rosie Commons playing Beautiful Wife
* Ryan Commons playing Often Shirtless Husband

Description:
The movie takes off in a classic Navy Seal mission like scene. Viewers ask themselves, "are the Commons' going to jump out of that commercial airline flight and take out Castro when they fly over Cuba?" Then, an unexpected turn, they land in Liberia; not Liberia, Africa...Liberia, Costa Rica. Adventure in the jungle and days at the beach follow. I hope you enjoy.
