Trip of a lifetime that more than lived up to expectations

This is by far our new favourite way to arrange holidays. The trip was amazing and the local partner and the team did a great job of recommending an almost perfect itinerary and then allowing me to customise it as I wanted. The odd tweak here and there was simple to arrange and everything worked like clockwork. They were available online to tweak a few pickup times as and when we needed them to and everything worked really well and offered great value too. Costa Rica itself was also amazing and, even though we were there at peak time, we never felt like we were on a massive tourist trail which sounds odd considering the nature of Costa Rica being so focused on tourism. Only one or two drives hit any traffic (mostly when heading into San Jose). The roads were easy to drive on even if rather bumpy in parts (a 4x4 is pretty essential especially if it is likely to rain or if you are relying on sat nav which can take you on some unexpected dirt tracks sometimes).

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

Very easy to deal with, very accommodating and their own team and drivers etc were all fantastic. Recommendations were all great, hotels were lovely and just right for us. Their proposed itinerary was great and got even better over time as we told them about a few extra things we really enjoyed doing (wild swimming in particular).

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

Not much, just watch out for the pricing errors that resulted in one or two refunds and then recharges (sometimes due to exchange rate issues).

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

The best parts were the canyoning down waterfalls (even my wife with no experience and our 13 year old daughter LOVED it). Night walk with tree climb in Monteverde was incredible and so was white water rafting.
