- This tour was a little disappointing by Explore standards. It lacked the big wow of other trips I have taken with you, and to be honest was not as good value. Your prices are really creeping up and everyone in the group commented on it. There were very few included meals. The last day was just a wasted day and I really didn't like the hotel in Manuel Antonio - not very Explore at all - and would have preferred to stay a third night in Monteverde (as per the published itinerary when I booked). The flights you booked for me had an unnecessarily long layover in Toronto (8 hours). There were two earlier flights I could have taken which would have reduced my layover to either 3 or 5 hours. Both perfectly doable. I am a huge fan of Explore but you did not live up to my expectations with this one. Maybe the impact of the buy-out is starting to show.
