Fantastic holiday and locations. We really loved Cost Rica and hope to return soon. One of many highlights has got to be swimming in the Pacific at Manuel Antonio with flying fish skimming either side of you, or it could be the humming birds sitting on our hands to feed at the Selvatura Park or the river trip on the Tarcoles river. a real piece of heaven on earth.

Most enjoyable. Trip covers the “big three” places giving a good taste of what the country has to offer. Accomodation: San Jose basic but OK, Aranal - great chalet type rooms with lovely layout and a/c that works well. Monteverde - awful, barely acceptable for a schoolkid or backpacker not for an adult group. Manual Antonio comfortable and different (rooms are converted shipping containers!). Transport is fine, good driver and trips not too long, broken by photo stops and lunch etc. All planned walks very good, but best memories are of activities NOT on schedule, Monteverde skywalk and boat trip on Rio Tarcoles – both amazing – should be official part of tour. For a keen amateur photographer, the trip was one long opportunity to get shots of new species. Beaches at M/A beautiful.

Our Response

We’re sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the accommodation in Monte Verde. We agree that the conditions you’ve described are unacceptable. We are currently looking into other options with the local agent, and we expect that we will have a suitable alternative before the next departure.

This trip does exactly what it says on the tin! A great insight to Costa Rica and a flavour of all it has to offer - night walks are a must for getting up close and personal to nocturnal wildlife and you can't beat a river trip for an abundance of all things with wings. My highlight has to be sloth - just there, hanging high above our heads, fast a kip! And the hummingbirds, the Spoonbill, the Red Eyed Tree Frog and on and on....!

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Costa Rica is full of amazing animals, plants and birds and you will see many of them, although camoflague is a key part of the environment so be prepared to wait and look - they are out there. For us, standing in the Hummingbird Garden in Monte Verde was fantastic. The birds were sitting on our hands at the feeders and you could spend as long as you wanted observing the many wonderful colours.

Fantastic animal viewing

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Our guide was fantastic and was so knowledgable regarding the wildlife. We stopped to watch a Sloth Mum and Baby cross the road in the hills. Tortugero was incredible. The Cloud forest Visit was very memorable as we went to retrieve a wildlife trap camera which had shots of a Puma in the night. Turtles, Humpback Whales, Jesus Christ Lizards
