- An excellent tour showing many aspects of this interesting and varied country. Caribbean lowlands, rainforest, cloud forest, volcanoes and Pacific coast. The standard of accommodation was excellent throughout the tour, it would have been lovely to spend an extra few days in the Pacific beach area at the end of the tour.
Our tour leader Juan Carlos was informative and attentive, along with our excellent driver Antonio. Both really enhanced the tour with their observational skills and knowledge of Costa Rican history and the local wildlife.
The only negative was the flight with British Airways, old aircraft with TV screens and audio not functioning properly, delays and really awful choice and standard of food, perhaps Explore could look at using an alternative carrier where flights are not individually booked ?
I would highly recommend this tour.
