Costa Rica December 2018

I just wanted to thank you and your local partners for the excellent trip you arranged in Costa Rica. Everything went smoothly as planned and the variety of experiences on the trip were excellent. We enjoyed all the accommodation and the destinations tremendously.

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

The meeting on the first day was very useful with tips about restaurants and stopping places. All the planned arrangements took place on time - with only a slight glitch on the last day re getting to the airport but that was sorted quickly.

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

2 of the guides in particularly were excellent in terms of their obvious love of the countryside and the wildlife within it, Henry Abraham at Tortuguero and the guide at the Monteverde Reserve (who was a replacement for the planned guide but whose name I have not recorded)

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

All the venues were well worth visiting. We were recommended the Rancho Perla restaurant in La Fortuna and it was certainly very good. We also liked The Open Kitchen which we came across in St. Elena.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

It is such a beautiful country it is hard to pick any one moment. The setting of the hotels at Tortuguero, Arenal and Pirate Cove, Drake Bay were certainly highlights. We really enjoyed the hikes in the various national parks.
