Andres has made our visit to Monteverde a smooth ride. Aside from being a fair and reliable driver, he was able arrange reservations and discounts for local attractions and lead us to nature spots that are not tourist heavy. He speaks perfect English and his friendly demeanor, jokes and mini history lessons along the way make rides witAndres a blast! He is always ready to help answer any questions. Couldn’t have asked for a better one week experience.

Andres from Faro Travel is fantastic!! He is super knowledgeable about the Monteverde area and gave us many excellent suggestions for excursions, including Extremo ziplines, Selvatura park where we walked through the cloud forest on the hanging bridges and saw the butterfly and hummingbird gardens.
Andres is fluent in English and has a great sense of humor. He doesn't put any pressure on you to book with him but you should-- his prices are very fair and he is an honest man. If you plan to come to Monteverde, definitely contact Faro and Andres!

I visited Monteverde as part of a volunteer trip and Faro Travel was 100% my go to for everything I needed. They arranged tours and even a ride back to San Jose to catch my flight. Excellent service, excellent communications and just really really nice people!!

I have no comment about Andres’ help for transportation. In addition of bringing us everywhere and on time, he also advised us on places to go and activities to do! And he even got us good discounts... Andres is very reliable and wants you to enjoy your stay fully without worrying about transportation as public transports aren’t really a thing in Monteverde. One last thing, you’ll never get bored during the ride as he’s always in a good mood and sometimes makes great jokes ;)

Whilst my stay at a local cafe farm slightly outside of Santa Elena I was reliant on transport, to either get to the town or to other place. In that aspect Andres was very helpful, as he not only provided the transport but also organized our tours. Himself and the taxi driver were always very kind and helpful to us. He’s the plug!

I am in Monteverde for one week and Andrés has been really helpful with arranging transportation between my host family and different adventures and tours. He has good knowledge of what is available in the area and is a good driver and a great guide.

I stayed at a coffee farm a little bit outside of Santa Elena and needed many taxis. They took care of everything. The process of being able to text or call whenever is amazing. This company made my trip more enjoyable. They were also very helpful giving us information about the area and helping us arrange tours. You should use them for any of your travel needs while here - taxis, tickets, etc!

I had a great experience using the services that were offered. The family members speak english, are friendly and were very kind to explain me things, that helped me with my trip. Additionally I spent some time researching the prices from other companies but could not find it anywhere cheaper, so if you want to save some money, that would be my choice again. I would totally recommend using their services.

Andres and his family run and incredibly friendly and reliable service for visitors! I’m a female solo traveler who had no set plans. I was worried about getting from point A to point B since I didn’t do much research prior to leaving California (this trip was last minute). However, using Faro Travel Costa Rica and Transportes Freylid (both run by the Andres and his family) it’s been a BREEZE. Seriously. I can What’s App him at any given time in the day and he’s very quick to respond. He’ll book my taxis, tours, pickups, drop-offs, and answer any general questions about ANY part of Costa Rica with just a little over 24hr notice sometimes. I’m still on vacation as we speak and I plan to use him for the duration of my trip!!! Seriously if you want someone reliable, affordable, and friendly this is your family. They speak English too! I highly recommend for female solo travelers - I feel so safe!

I have to confess that the transport service provided by Andres and his company was simply perfect.
The staff speak several lenguages and communication is clear and transparent. Available and ready to answer also by Facebook and WhatsApp. The transport was excellent in all the details, on time and comfortable!
Furthermore, Andres and his family are friendly and willing to provide any explanation about Costa Rica! It is a pleasure supporting local entrepreneurs!!

We spent a week in Monte Verde and used Faro Travel nearly every day to bring us to our activities. Andres provided perfect service every time and he was also able to organise activities for us! He is very knowledgeable about all there is to do here and speaks perfectly English.
I would totally recommend using Faro Travel.

We spent a week in Monte Verde with my friends and honestly had the best service ever! Andres was always available when we needed to get picked up or referred us to a friend. Additionally, he was able to organise and book all our activities at a cheaper price, therefore not only making organisation easier but also enabling us to spend less money! All the employees at the agency are such nice guys as well it’s always a pleasure working with them. Definitely recommend:))

I stayed in Monteverde for a month and while there, I traveled within Monteverde and to many other cities. I used Faro Travel Costa Rica and was very pleased with the services provided as the staff were always professional, punctual, kind, friendly and helpful (especially Andres!).
As I solo female traveler they helped me feel safe and also helped me book many activities/travels. I was able able to contact them at any time and would receive a quick reply, even when I would message them last minute about wanting to go somewhere/do something.
I would recommend them to anyone visiting Monteverde or for anyone looking for a reliable tour company.

My husband and I participated in a local volunteer program in a rural farm outskirt of Santa Elena. Andres provided taxi services daily for us from this farm to downtown. He is so friendly and responsive. He also recommended and arranged the canopy tour for us, which was totally awesome and fun! Glad to have met Andres and his family. We will definitely recommend to our friends and contact them for travel arrangements next time we are back in Costa Rica.

Faro Travel helped me get around Monteverde and is helping me return to the airport. They are very helpful and had great recommendations for what to do while in Monteverde, helping to coordinate a zip lining tour with another company. It is a Spanish speaking country, so be prepared, but I coordinated with Andrés who speaks English perfectly, was incredibly helpful, and was very prompt to reply. 100% recommend for getting around Costa Rica!!!

I’ve traveled a lot in my life and Andreas has been one of the most helpful people I have met. New every nook and crannie and could get you hooked up with anything you would want to do in the country. Absolute stand up guy, coming to him again on my next visit of Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

My wife and I were in Monteverde for a 3 week volunteer assignment on a coffee farm 20 minutes away from downtown Monteverde. Faro Travel was a consistent, reliable source for all of our transportation during these 3 weeks, no matter what time of day or night.
They also arranged 4 different tours for us, and we enjoyed each one very much. Our primary driver was Andres, and he was also fluent in both English and Spanish, providing another wonderful service. If he was not available to drive us he always arranged for another driver.
Our time here was greatly improved due to the excellent service provided by Faro, and I highly recommend them for your travel and tours while in Monteverde.

I highly recommend faro travel to anyone looking for tours or transportation. Andres puts his heart and soul into making Faro Travel a great company.

If you are in the Monteverde area and are in need of transportation either locally or throughout Costa Rica, consider Faro Travel. We spent 3 weeks in Monteverde and whenever we needed a car, we called Faro. We usually interacted with Andreas however all of the drivers were great. If one of their cars wasn’t available, Andreas made the arrangement for a different company to pick us up. I highly recommend them for their service, friendliness and advice (they also book tours).
