NB - Full debrief given to Marianna at TravelLocal's local partner. We had done our research and had a good idea of what we wanted to cover in 3 weeks. Marianna was very responsive in building an itinerary that fitted what we wanted. In practice, the logistics worked well with the odd text to Marianna to check up and the accommodation, though varied, was all within the range of what we were looking for. Would recommend highly Costa Rica and TravelLocal's local partner - and have already done so
Highly flexible in meeting our requirements, compare to others who usually want to force you into a standard package Quick to respond to any requests or queries from us, both before and during the trip Good choices of locations and accommodation Logistics and arrangements all worked very well
All the guides were very professional and well informed. (Not always the case in other countries)
Especially recommend El Silencio, Trogon lodge and Arenal Manoa. Also Villas Nicholas - simple accommodation but worked well Advise people that Drake's Bay and Tortuguero have more basic accommodation and food, though the locations are good if you like wilder places Encourage people to drive themselves as roads and driving standards are good
Too many to list! if pushed, maybe Trogon Lodge in terms of location, accommodation and food
