TranSunshine is absolutely amazing! The communication and customer service was superior. Our driver Walter was the best driver we have ever had and my family and I travel lots of places. Walter was well knowledgeable, honest, and reliable. We stop at some of the best restaurants, and tourists location. He went over and beyond to make our trips enjoyable. He was our transport to and from San Jose Airport to Manuel Antonio.

Friendly service!

Our driver Walter was so friendly and welcoming. He stopped at Jaco Beach and Tarcoles River en route to our villa and he also made calls to various labs until he secured us an appointment for COVID testing. On our trip back to the airport, he took us to a local eatery for breakfast which was delicious! Walter also speaks great English if you do not know Spanish. Overall, we had such a pleasant experience and would certainly book again!

Stress Free trip in Costa Rica

Walter, the owner, made our trip worry-free and stress-free. We hired him to drive us from airport to our vacation rental very early Christmas day and we ended up hired him to drive around to all our day tours around Costa Rica. Walter is honest and easy to work with. He went out of his ways to make our trip pleasant. He helped us setup out prepaid sim cards and acted our translator. He helped us booked our day tours and helped us save money by taking us to public hot springs without fee. When he drove us to out day tours, he would made efforts to made extra stops for us to sightsee sites and stop by tropical fruit stands for us to purchase tropical fruits. On one of the trip to La Fortuna area, he tracked down a sloth on a tree off the road and let us take videos and pictures. Another good thing is that Walter will always in a happy mood even if he had to drive us home very late. On a couple occasions, we left our rental house 7-8 am and not return until midnight. Even in these long hours trip, he was very accommodating in making extra stops.

Overall, we are very happy to have him help us and drive us around Costa Rica. He was like part of our family. We enjoyed the time we spent with him and the service he provided us. Could not have asked for a more pleasant and friendlier driver. Will definitely use him again and recommend to our friends.

Best trip

Drove to the one of the gorgeous national parks here - crossed the Rio Celeste saw the biggest and oldest Sequoia tree in Costa Rica (affectionately called the Peace Tree) and then we had a long hike in to the waterfall Celeste and the tough part 350 steep steps down to it then 350 steps back up.
In a light misty rain.
My knees hate me almost as much as my cat back home.

But I did it!

What a gorgeous waterfall with a beautiful aqua blue color lagoon.

Now lunch at an authentic Costa Rican soda.... where our guide showed us a bit about coffee beans and I also ate my first Leche fruit. Yum!

Then back in the shuttle to drive some more... now it is beginning to rain a little harder.

we are seeing so much of this countryside.... the rain isn’t stopping us.

Reliable, friendly and competitive transport company

Reliable, friendly and competitive transport companyTransunshine are a reliable, friendly and competitive transport company if you are planning a trip in Costa Rica. Brenda looks after the communications and was all always very prompt in replying ad we planned our trip and explored different destinations and the cost of each journey. Walter the owner of the company drove us for all our journeys, his English is good and he helped to arrange a number of things for us including a local SIM card. He has good recommendations for accommodation if you need some help. To sum up I would not hesitate to use Transunshine again, great service. Thank you.

Transportation service

Using Transunshine as our transportation service is Costa Rica was one of our best decisions! We hard 2 large groups (each out 18-22 people) that needed to be picked up from the airport and taken to our hotel in Manuel Antonio. It was very easy to find them at the airport, they were very timely with pick-up and all of the employees were very pleasant! The drivers were awesome and let us see the notorious crocodile bridge on the way over. I high recommend using this company for any of your transportation needs. Pura Vida!

Amazing trip in CR

We just got back from an amazing one week trip to Costa Rica. Besides the beautiful country, what made our family trip great was Walter, who helped us explore Costa Rica, drove us around, and gave us a lot of information. He was informative, helpful and fun to be with. At the end, he became just like part of our family!Before we came to CR, I always communicated with Brenda who I booked the transport with. She gave a competitive rates and was always prompt in responding to my email.We definitely will come back, and highly recommend them.Thank you,Arun Dali & Family

Amazing Costa Rica tour

Transunshine provided us with such a great private transfer service on our two week holiday in Costa Rica. We could tour our trip to our exact requirements, dates and times. This saved us a not of time and was far more convenient than taking expensive scheduled, shared transfers, which would have involved a 5:00am wake up call. The best thing is, Transunshine are so competitively priced that you don't pay so much more than the shared transfers!Oscar was the perfect driver, with many years experience in the tourism industry, he was able to give us in depth onsite to his wonderful country. Brenda made all the arrangements, she kept in touch and provided us with all the necessary information to make sure our 5 stop tour ran smoothly. We would definitely recommend their service.

One of the best trip ever

We spend the most amazing time in CR. Everything was planned by Walter, if we would ask for extra stop, or stay longer to enjoy the sightseeing it was always accommodated. On the way to the airport I realized that I forgot my passport at the hotel. Walter momentarily came back and drove me to the hotel. He beat all the traffic, driving his car like a jet. Was very happy to have such a great guide, how is also became my best friend!!! Thank you Walter again and again!!

Costa Rica Trip

We went on day trips from San Jose on April 13 and 14, 2018. Walter was very professional and courteous. On day one, we toured La Paz garden and waterfalls. The second day we went to Jaco and surrounding area. He is not only a good driver but also a great guide and translator. He was always willing to go extra miles to make us comfortable. At the end of the trip, he dropped us at the airport. Walter, I wanted to thank you and say you were a part of this great vacation in Costa Rica. I highly recommend you for any transportation needs in Costa Rica. Sandeep

Top Noth Travel service!

I visited Costa Rica in July 2014. I used Costa Rica Tour and Travel just for transportation between San Jose, Arenal and Manuel Antonio. The prices were extremely reasonable and Victor responded to every single e-mail that I sent. Every pick-up and drop -off was on time. His customer service is 6 stars in my book - and I would highly recommend this company!

Hi Victor

Thank you very much for the transportation! Apologies for the confusion for the number of guests, as we had a change.

The guests enjoyed the driver and said he was very accommodating!!


Wellness Dwellers Group

Can't recommend you guys highly enough, and just want to say thank you again for your help and for being so accommodating when I decided I needed to do some shopping in Sarchi. (By the way, it rained so hard there we could barely get into the building, but Vladomir held an umbrella for me and made sure our experience was a good one.

Thank you again, Victor!

Linda Pysher

I gave you guys a five-star review, but wanted to add my personal thanks for all you did to help us with our travels. We had a great experience with you and all your drivers. The vans were always on time, the drivers made us feel very safe, and Roy in particular was a great guide, stopped to show us scarlet macaws that we would have missed otherwise. Our daughter was so happy there was wi-fi in most of the vans, and I was happy at how well maintained and safe and clean they were.

Dependable, reasonably, priced in Costa Rica

Trans/Sunshine offers newer, clean vehicles, courteous drivers and great service! If you want to cross one item off your worry list during travel in Costa Rica, then I strongly advise you to hire this company for your transportation needs.

Excellent Friendly Driver

We got picked up privately from San Jose and taken to monteverde. The service was professional and booking was easy. I decided I wanted to stop off at territorio de zaguates which was a dog refuge and the driver Luis was so kind and stopped for a few hours whilst we visited this place. Luis was kind and friendly offering us so much advice and made the 4 hour journey so much more enjoyable. He even stopped to by some roadside fruit to share with us. Excellent company and wouldn't hesitate in using them again.
