      Jaco CR
      Wizzy_E, May 2024
      Josue was a great tour guide. He showed us where to try lots of great food in Jaco. He knew a lot about Costa Rica history and its food. We learned so much about CR. Josue took us to places we wouldn't think to find on our own. We tried many traditional dishes and ate a lot! He’s an amazing photographer as well LOL!
      Great food and culture experience

      Great experience all around. It was amazing to learn about all the great food and culure that Jaco has to offer. Can’t recommend this enough. The guide is fabulous.
      Great food experience.

      One of the best tours we took in Jaco. Joshua was a fantastic host, showing and explaining the food of Costa Rica and painted murals. We would certainly take this tour again. I recommend his tour to everybody interested in this cultural experience. Thank you Josue for the fun and informative tour.
      Excellent, don't miss this tour!

      Josua was a wonderful guide throughout our food tour in Jaco. He was personable and filled with all kinds of information. Josua answered all of our many questions with ease and was a delight! We took this tour early during our trip to Costa Rica and returned to a few of the places that were our favorites. HIGHLY recommend!
      Taste of Jaco Review

      I really enjoyed how knowledgeable Josué was about the food and the history of why the food has become a big part of the Costa Rican culture. We got to be apart of people watching Costa Rica vs. Honduras. The sunset was beautiful and the desert at the end was refreshing and delicious. We had a Winston Churchill for desert. If you enjoy walking and sightseeing, I highly recommend the tour. 10 out of 10.
      Josue is the best tour guide in Jaco

      Josue was the host. He was my host for a couple of other tours also. Being alone in Jaco, he made me feel safe and really took time to show me around town.
      A Foodie's Dream!!!
      Its_L, Feb 2024
      This was a very well thought out "Foodie" experience. Josue was a consummate professional with a vast knowledge of history of all the foods we tasted.
      Filled our bellies in Jaco
      James_G, Feb 2024
      An excellent tour with Josue, who is knowledgeable and passionate about Costa Rican culture generally, and about its food specifically. He took us to places we wouldn’t have found on our own, introduced us to numerous traditional dishes, and we got thoroughly stuffed in the process! The tour was done at a relaxed pace, which was greatly appreciated given the amount of food and drink to be consumed. Our only regret was not having done the tour sooner, as it is a great way to get your bearings in Jaco and find out where (and where not to) eat. Many thanks, Josue!.
      Tasty foods… wonderful experience
      Teresa_K, Jan 2024
      Our guide, Josue, was a wonderful guide. We tasted so many delicious foods from the Jaco area. Josue was also very knowledgeable about the region. He guided our group so that we could see some interesting murals in the city and we went to the beach to watch the sunset. Come hungry because you will definitely get filled up!
      A wonderful experience in Jacó
      Colleen_M, Jan 2024
      I was the only person on my tour and really appreciated that this didn’t cause a cancellation. I enjoyed the food, drinks, learning about Jacó and Costa Rica, and the conversation with Josue. Definitely recommend this tour!
      Wonderful experience with great local food
      Laurie_S, Jan 2024
      We had an amazing time. Josue shared a lot of local history and culture and took us places we would have never discovered on our own. The food and drink was delicious and he went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Highly recommend!!
      Fun and tasty!
      Jennifer_B, Jan 2024
      We had the best time! Not only was Josue knowledgeable and entertaining, but the food was phenomenal! We were stuffed by the end - yum!
      Experience Jaco Culture
      Kathryne_E, Dec 2023
      Highly recommend taking this tour to experience the local culture, food and drinks. Patricia and Josue were great! Very knowledgeable and kind. I had a scheduling issue and Josue was very flexible and easy with last minute changes. If you go to Jaco take one of their tours!
