One of the best holidays we have had. We had an amazing time in Costa Rica. Saw lots of amazing wildlife and had time to relax.
Mariana put together an excellent and varied programme for us. We asked to go away from the beaten track, and we certainly did. Used shared transport, which worked well. A couple of times we were the only ones on the bus, and most of the time we were dropped off first. With only one exception, the accommodation was excellent. The Callidryas Sloth Tour at La Fortuna was superb, one of the best half day trips we have ever done.
Checking the days the National parks are closed! Many are closed on Mondays. We had to alter our programme so we could have a day walking in Rincon do la Vieja
Most guides were excellent, we saw some amazing wildlife. Used shared transport, which was excellent, always turned up and drove us safely to our next destination. All drivers were polite, helpful, friendly and good drivers.
Have an idea where you want to go, and things you want to do, but take the experts suggest other things as well.
