Great trip in Costa Rica

We appreciate the use of a UK based company when dealing with travel companies based "in country". Especially the ability to pay in UK currency and have ABTA insurance. It is also good that we can talk to and deal directly with the local company through the website, with what appears to be minimum involvement from TravelLocal. We have successfully dealt directly with local tour companies to arrange foreign holidays previously, but providing the mark up is not too great we found this to be a preferable way.

What was good about our local partner based in Costa Rica?

Responded very promptly to messages etc. They were very approachable to itinerary changes and not to pushy. The meet on the 1st morning was a good idea and walking us through the itinerary worked well.

What could our local partner based in Costa Rica improve on?

no issues

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

All drivers were very good, only minimal use of mobile phone while driving. All the guides were also very good, particular mention should go to the guide who took us bird watching in the Monteverdi reserve and the Nicaraguan guide who took us to Las Isletas and the Masaya volcano and market (same guide). Both guides excellent.

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to Costa Rica?

Pack warm clothing for Monteverdi. Don't miss out on Nicaragua. Have a bit of beach time at the end, Montezuma was great.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

All good but we particularly enjoyed Can Negro, the stay in Arenal and Nicaragua.
