- This was tailormade tour of 19 nights. We stayed in 6 different locations of our choosing and at each place we included an excursion. Every pickup was on time or early, the drivers and or guides were very good.
The information about our excursions could be improved by advising us what to wear and which activity would take place first eg,Half day guided hike in Cahuita National Park, it read as if the hike was first and was going to be most of the trip, in fact we snorkelled first and that was the greater part, had we known we would have gone in our swimwear. This trip was excellent and we would give it 10 out of 10.
We stayed at the Montana Hotel in Monteverde and we ate in the hotel restaurant on
the first night the food was not up to the standard we had in other places but we found a nice place nearby to eat on subsequent nights. The hotel staff were very accommodating.
The highlight was staying at La Ensenada Ranch this is an isolated spot overlooking the Pacific on the Gulf of Nicoya. If you like bird watching and getting away from crowds it is idyllic. The food arrangements here could be improved by being a little more flexible. Lunch is $14 no choice, dinner $18 little choice. It would have been nice to be able just to have a salad if one had wanted for say$10. No-one here seemed interested in feed-back.
Having said that we would definitely return here as accommodation and location were wonderful.
We think the whole trip was well planned and good value for money we loved Costa Rica.
