Charles is a very good driver and knows the best route to take. He is fun to talk to and very knowledgeable about all of Costa Rica. The vehicles are clean and reliable.
Drive from San Jose to Caribbean coast.

This was the single nicest car ride I’ve ever had. Jorge was super well informed and a great driver. Can’t recommend them more.
Truly Exceptional

We booked with Charles Forbes for a few trips to get around Costa Rica for our honeymoon. If we had known how amazing the service was going to be, we would have used them for ALL of our transportation. Booking was easy via email, and Charles was always prompt and clear. Charles does his utmost to make sure each trip isn't just a taxi ride, he turns into an opportunity to see something along the way that you may have missed otherwise. It turns an arduous journey into an enjoyable day. Yes, he isn't the cheapest, but his price is reflected in his service. There isn't a better service in Costa Rica. His thoughtfulness and experience shows in how he plans the journeys keeping both practicality and comfort in mind. Even customising the cool box contents for our next trip from things we had discussed on the last one. At the end of your journey, Charles has created an experience that feels like you've met up with a friend who's showing you his country.
Great Trip from Guanacaste to Puerto Vijejo

Best experience and worth every dollar spent and then some! We booked this trip to Costa Rica with very little lead in time, and could not rent a car, so we realized we needed car and driver service from point A to B to C and so on. After a bit of research, we found Baqueano Tours.

The communication with owner Charles prior to the trip already brought us a sense of ease and comfort. He was knowledgeable, helped us choose destinations, provided exact information about times and places, and made the payment process easy.

Once we got here, we were treated to first-class cars and drivers who did not just arrive on time, but early. The drivers were flexible, friendly, expert and flexible with any/all requests.

I cannot say enough about our positive experiences here! And driving is no easy task in Costa Rica. There are rough roads in places, no shoulders sometimes, and people who rented cars told us of the need to add insurance. Once you are in destinations, getting around is relatively easy, so with service like this available, you can see many destinations hassle free. Not to mention, you can be a spectator, take a nap, and arrive refreshed at your destinations.

I’m not sure if all car & driver experiences in Costa Rica or elsewhere would be this convenient and positive, but I can tell you, as a former travel industry professional, Baqueano Tours is a top-notch operation!
