  Costa Rica has certainly grown in popularity since I first started offering golf vacations to this tropical paradise in 1998. I have been associated with the golf industry here since 1995 as both a guide for golf vacationers as well as being the major golf product distributor in Costa Rica.

  "What are the best options for a golf vacation in Costa Rica?"
  "How can I get on the private courses?"

  We are all about the golf and due to our close association with the golf properties we stay current on all the events that can affect your golf vacation in Costa Rica.

  Throughout the site we have placed comments about our services from clients and golf industry professionals. We are very proud of our reputation and look forward to earning our stars from you as soon as possible.

Dear Landy,

  Fred and I can't thank you enough for all you did to make our Costa Rica golf trip a truly amazing adventure. The hotels you chose were just what we had asked for... clean, well located, great service and nice amenities, without the big price tag of the big resorts. The transfers you arranged were always on time and the drivers were friendly and very helpful, and we really enjoyed the tours you set up on our days off from golf.

  The golf, of course, was awesome! What a treat it was to play with monkeys, scarlet macaws and even a toucan for an audience! We especially enjoyed the views from the course at The Four Seasons, as well as the wildlife and layout of La Iguana.
  But most of all, we really appreciated the incredible personal service we received from you! More than feeling like valued customers, we felt cared for like friends. You and Susan are very special people, and we could not have been happier that we had you taking care of our trip!

Sincerely,

Annie Ballantine & Fred Gumbinner

Hi, Landy.
  Kath and I arrived back in the US last night after a terrific trip to Costa Rica. Everything went well, and everyone was expecting us just right. Drivers were very pleasant, though only a couple spoke much English. It was very nice not to have to drive.
  The Springs was amazing. What a gorgeous facility. Everywhere we went the staff were friendly and helpful.
  Enjoyed the golf, too. Only a few sprinkles of rain, and that was at Cariari, and presented no problems--did not last even 2 holes. Pretty darn hot to play golf in Guanacaste, but the golf courses were very nice and we could find breezes as needed. Tamarindo was also fun, as was the catamaran sailing adventure. And the Four Seasons golf course was beyond beautiful. Very nice golf course. They had just punched the greens, and they were letting them grow, so they were slow. But what views!
  I wanted to say thank you for all your arrangements. Also thank you for your gift bag with all the goodies from Costa Rica Golf Adventures. We were grateful for all of it. The trip was a very nice way to celebrate our 30 years together. I am sure we will return to Costa Rica sometime soon.
  Best regards, and Pura Vida.
Tom and Kathe.

Hi Landy,
  Sorry for the delayed response. Rollercoaster of family deaths and illness on both sides have taken a lot of time away from us.
  First, I want to thank you for both of us for all that you and Susan did to make our five weeks visit to Costa Rica enjoyable, safe and filled with memories. You and your organization are first class.
  I have already referred you to several people who will, hopefully, say they heard about you from us.
  The Rio Tropicales whitewater rafting trip down the Pacuare River was a definite highlight of our vacation. Travel to/from the river, was safe and adventurous. Descending a mountain road in the rain by tractor driven wagon was quite an experience. Our guides were informative, welcoming, helpful, calming and good cooks. Beside the fact that they trained us and guided us safely down class1-4 rapids of one of the top five rated white water rafting rivers in the world. it was an exciting, wild, fun filled, awesome views of the rain forest trip down the river.
  Our only suggestion is to ensure that one brings a dry towel for use at the nature center at the end of the trip. Food at the nature center was splendid, Also, our overnight stay at the nature lodge was very comfortable and somewhat revealing of what life may be like for the aboriginal people living in the rain forest.
  We highly recommend this rafting trip and the Rio Tropicales organization. Another note, our valuable were well secured and kept dry by the guides.
  You have our permission to use the above comments in your business endeavours.

  Landy, this is a very belated thank you for the wonderful trip you organized for us in Coast Rica. Both hotels were great. We enjoyed the fact that they were not Americanized. The drivers were great. The meal suggestion were perfect. (We celebrated our anniversary two times Ė both places you suggested). I know you mentioned that the chocolate tour was a new one for you. I think anyone would love that and the lunch there was fantastic. From the time we met you at the hotel for drinks till we departed it was all awesome. We have some great pictures and memories.
  We canít say enough good about you. We did pass on your info to a few other people. If anyone ever wants a recommendation donít hesitate to let them get in touch with us.

  Costa Rica Golf Adventures was over the top Fantastic in helping us plan our Golf Trip AND Vacation to Costa Rica.
  Landy Blank and his wife, Susan, researched, set up and coordinated almost everything for us. Plus, they saved us money! They arranged transportation, T Times, hotels, excursions, etc. And they used their discounts at several of the golf courses and hotels to pass on savings to us.
  They were extremely responsive and communicative. We always knew what was happening and what to expect. They saved us from various pitfalls that travelers to unknown countries may fall prey (like the mandatory insurance cost on a rental cost being more than the rental cost of the car!).
  They acted much more like friends trying to arrange the best experience for us - as opposed to an impersonal broker or an agent. They spent a lot of time tailoring our activities and coordinating our schedule to our unique travel desires - even arranging mid-trip changes to our itinerary. On top of all that, they provided above and beyond personal service for us - dining with us, transporting us, providing us a goodie bag, and most significantly taking care of my significant other who had a sudden medical issue, etc. etc.
AAAAAA++++++++++  Best golf or travel agent experience I have had in my life!
  Not only would I recommend them to anyone, I would say that if you are interested in having any component of your trip to Costa Rica involve golf, you would be crazy not to contact Landy. In fact, as Landy handles other excursions in Costa Rica, so I would contact him for any travel I was doing in Costa Rica.

  "I was somewhat skeptical of putting our trip (and safety) in the hands of someone I had only spoken to on the phone; literally, I could not have planned a better vacation for myself if I tried and even in retrospect we would not have changed anything about the trip....."  Matt G. , Phoenix, AZ ( For more testimonials Click Here )

  "Landy - this has been the most fantastic week! The catamaran your and crew were awesome, the golf course here is fabulous and I've been making friends with the macaw and the toucan! I have fabulous photos!! Fireworks twice this week at the resort. Lovely day at Manuel Antonio and stopped at Le Avian ;)
  But the ATV tour wins!! Freaking fantastic!! We were tired, filthy and happy when we got back from that!!
Planning a 8:30 am departure to head to Cariari CC in the morning. We found out about no street signs trying to get out of San Jose last week - so we have a buffer for tomorrow!!!
Looking forward to seeing you!"
