Fabulous. A great overview of the diversity of Costa Rica

Great programme - good balance between packing lots in and relaxing, accommodation fabulous, guides very good. There was one place that proves an exception in terms of activities which we have picked up directly with TravelLocal's experts directly.

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

Prompt responses and flexible to our needs.

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

No response yet to our comments but in fairness only sent yesterday. Jury out until I hear back!

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

All drivers excellent. Guide in monteverde stood out for us as exceptional but others were good. As outlined above there was an issue in Cahuita which is the only reason the score isn't a 5.

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

Be aware that national park fees aren't included. Be prepared for possibility of bad weather. Avoid snorkelling in Cahuita. Be brave and hire a car. It was fun. Allow two weeks minimum to really get the best out of it.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

Tortuguera for its unique landscape and animal spotting. Samara for chilling at Gusto Beach. Arenal and monteverde cloudforest for scenery and majesty.
