We had the best time and our guides were amazing. Thank Daniel, Amanda and Rachel for being wonderful and sharing your city with us. If you ever have the time to visit San José I highly recommended doing this tour. You’ll get a glimpse of the Costa Rican nightlife.

Our tour guide was great. Very nice and friendly. He even helped my husband get a cab home. It was a great night out
Fun pub crawl with an international crowd!

We joined the pub crawl mid February with visiting friends from Argentina, the United States, Italy and The Philippines. It was a great way to spend time together, have our guests see some of San José, and learn more about Costa Rica from locals.

We had previously joined Carpe Chepe for the free city tour, and since we had a good time then, we decided to sign up for this pub crawl. We were not disappointed. All of our friends enjoyed themselves and we got to discover some new places ourselves as well.

We visited different bars and didn't have to wait in line at any of the these places. This was really nice because some of the bars had lots of people lined up outside waiting for their turn to go inside. The guides were very friendly, bilingual, and made sure everyone enjoyed their night out. They seemed to be having a good time themselves as well and they kinda just felt like part of our group!

It sometimes took a while to get drinks, but other than that we had zero complaints. We would definitely sign up for this pub crawl again in the future, or try one of the other tours that Carpe Chepe offers. If you're looking for a fun night out, this is it!
You have to do this! Best way to go out!

This is nothing like the touristy pub crawls you know, it's made & run by locals and you will visit local bars & party at best clubs (skipping really long lines of locals - which by itself proves a lot). I went solo, but I highly recommended even if you're coming with friends/your other half
