Excellent itinerary and organisation

Everything worked like clockwork. Any slight time amendments were communicated to us by transport companies and hotels. Our itinerary was very good and all accommodation, with the exception of a couple of small issues at one lodge, were ideal. The one we had some issues with was advised to Travel Local and I am confident it will be taken into account for the future and other customers. We had a lovely time

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

Communications and organisation was well as itinerary

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


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

Majority were very good guides as well as drivers. Only one was not very good at communicating and decided to put solid large cases on top of our holdalls, rather than packing more sensibly

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

We found meal portions often were huge and had to leave some food, which is wasteful, but it seems very common across Costa Rica. In Puerto Viejo area, would recommend the Jaguar Rescue Centre ( name of centre which rescues and releases many different animals and birds. No Jaguars!). Also the Ara Project breeding programme for the Great Green Macaw. Needs transport to get up very steep access road & must book a 3pm tour, but absolutely brilliant!

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

Maquenqui & tree House, Tortuguera and all the tours at each of these locations. Plus the rescue centre & Ara project as mentioned previously
