“Beautiful & exceeded expectations”

We stayed at dreams for 7 days for my sisters wedding & were extremely impressed by what a relaxing adventure it was. It was a bit of a drive from the airport; but very cool adventure from Ricozz tours who stopped to show us wildlife & monkeys on the way.

Super Friendly And Helpful - Dreams Las Mareas

We used Riccozz Tours to take us to and from the airport (it is about 1.5 hours away - but you go through national parks/conservation areas). We saw three types of monkeys on our drive in! Everyone we interacted with through the company was super friendly and helpful. Yes they try to sell you on multiple things, but that is there job. Sebastian was a BIG help. They even stopped at a super market on the way in so we could by more sunscreen (recommended) and bug spray (also recommended) and wouldn't have to pay the resort prices. We used Riccozz for our ziplining/horseback riding/and waterslide excursion as well. SO much fun and there were only 4 of us on the tour which made it very nice and intimate!

“Fantastic Property” -Dreams Las Mareas

The property is fantastic, especially the pools. You need to know what to expect in Costa Rica, especially this region. It is more desert conditions than lush tropical, which suited us just fine. The staff were fantastic, friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean and spacious. Definitely go with tropical view minimum, not mountain view. The only knocks on the property is that it is new and they need more staff, plus the drive in is 1.5 hours some on gravel roads. Best surprise the food was much better than expected.


Used John Soto from Ricozz Tours for transportation and excursions, he was great and far more reasonable than what is offered from the resort. We did the half day fishing among other things, he gave us a great deal and not only did we catch our share of tuna, but the restaurant at the resort (Seaside Grill) prepared it for us…AMAZING!!! The whole family had a fantastic time.

Dreams Las Mareas - We did not use Swiss Travel

We did not use Swiss Travel for the transportation or for tours because they never responded to our emails prior to travel. We met John of Ricozz on the beach and arranged a wonderful full-day of action at Guanchepelein for my daughter and me--it was a blast, with zip-lining, horseback riding, white water rafting on III an IV rapids on the Rio Colorado, and after lunch a trip to the hot springs for a mud bath and relaxation after all the exertion.

Definetly take some time to see Costa Rica!

Definitely take some time to see Costa Rica! John with Ricozz Tours (on the beach) took us fishing, to Nicuragua, and to some waterfalls and they were excellent to deal with!

A Big Thank You

A big thank you to John from Ricozz Tours for taking care of my Family and I while we stayed at Dreams las Mareas. John made sure we got the most out of our week and were able to see some of the sights Costa Rica had to offer at a great price.

“Dreaming of Dreams”

We just arrived back from a glorious week at Dreams Las Mareas in Costa Rica.


We used Ricozz Tours for an ATV Trip. The ATV Trip was fun but intense, definitely some rough terrain just a warning - I made it out alive to talk about it though!

Dreams Las Mareas - Use Ricozz Tours


We stayed at the Dreams Las Mareas: The best excursions are two hours away but we did a nearby ATV one and it was beyond amazing. Hated the pushy excursion people at the resort excursion desk. They knew nothing of the excursions and just wanted you to purchase. Do your research before going and contact other excursion companies online. We used for our airport transfer and ATV tour. They are also on Facebook so I would just Facebook message with them, regarding any questions or excursions we wanted to plan. They offer others as well but with the road being so bad we were hesitant to leave.

Myself and 3 others stayed at the Hilton Papagayo fron the 21st to the 28th and enjoyed everything this beautiful resort had to offer. I have to say thank you to John from Guana who arranged all our amazing tours with knowledgeable, friendly guides.

Hilton Papagayo is a great place to relax out in the countryside, but you also have easy access to adventure trips or shopping trips to nearby beach towns. We spent the first day just hanging out at the hotel beach and pools, then the next 3 days we did day trips; a shopping trip to Tamarindo (40 minute van ride through the countyside, and town has a really nice beach, shopping, restaurants), also did a 1/2 day snorkeling boat trip (you catch the boat at the hotel beach), and a full adventure tour that included zipline, white water rafting, horseback riding, lunch, and hot springs. The full day adventure tour was truly awesome! John Soto from Guana Tours arranged all of our day trips, and I was very happy with all the arrangements he made. You can find John on the Hilton Papagayo beach everyday.

We booked a tour with John Deyvi Soto who we found on the beach. His english is excellent, his knowedge of the area superior and he took us in a mini van with two other couples on a tailor made tour just for us. The prices beat the hotel rates and we had much more one on one attention with out guide.
Highly recommend him - his company is called GuanaTours. I can't speak for any of the other companies, but John was safe, friendly and flexible. My only suggestion would be to not book two tours on consecutive days because you will be too tired (better every other day so you can break in between) and if you decide to go on the river tour - bring bug spray just in case.
My two cents.


Take a tour with John Soto of GuanaTrans (you'll find him on the beach at the resort). He & his wife took just the two of us to the Blue River Resort to zipline, tour the property (it's a paradise), lunch and the mud bath/hot springs. He his very nice and very knowledgable about the plants, animals, and Costa Rica in general.
