This trip was so suited to our ideal, We had 6 varied but always wonderful places to stay. Great guides and great locations. We wanted wildlife with an emphasis on birds and that exceeded our expectations. The itinerary was spaced to give us a balance of activity and relaxation that we were looking for and everything, such as transfers ran smoothly and on time. We can't fault it.
Everything made easy and efficient for our trip
I don't really like filling in online surveys passed by some drivers, obviously under instruction. Better communication to Hotels and lodges about allergies. In my case Ceoliac, so shouldn't have gluten. most had no idea what I was talking about.
Guides were all really great. Communicative, knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions and ensure we had a fulfilling experience. One or two drivers where somewhat impatient and a little too eager to get to a destination quickly. Some spent a lot of time talking on the phone while driving, presumably to their employers giving updates and taking instructions (illegal in the UK). This did make some trips a little more stressful than needed.
Take binoculars, sun screen, perhaps some bug spray and use a recommended guide if you're looking for wildlife, they'll spot things you'd never see if alone. Also take a smile and relax.
The whole experience of Costa Rica, FANTASTIC!
