Well organised trip to Costa Rica, great guides

Great trip, everything worked liked clockwork, only time our transfer was 10 minutes late we panicked because we weren't used to it! Everything we wanted to see we did. TravelLocal understood my brief and gave me what I wanted and more.

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

Met us on our first night to go through the itinerary which was very helpful, organisation was very good. She is also ensured that we got a good room in the last resort where building work was taking place. We felt very confident that the trip was in hand. The Nicaraguan agent (Katherine) was excellent.

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

Explain the Costa Rican/Nicaraguan crossing in more detail (border fees, correct money), we needed this information before we crossed not after. Definitely more detail i.e. you will be picked up from your hotel.

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

Without doubt they were all excellent, big shout out to Stephen in Tortuguero and Luis in Ometepe they made the trip

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

Probably in hindsight we would have cut out Monteverde and had another 2 nights in Nicaragua but you only work this out after the trip, a little bit limited in menu choice for vegetarians (big meat eaters here!) but I live in France so I'm used to it!! Overall a great trip that includes everything.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

Walking through the rain forest, leaving Tortuguero on the boat in a foot of water (amazing captain who navigated) zip wiring and horse riding in the Borinquen resort. Ometepe (fantastic guide) and Granada in Nicaragua
