Our Costa Rica tour company was most organised and kept us informed of all arrangements in the lead up to our trip in Costa Rico and Panama very well. All pick ups and services were of a high standard. The hotels selected for us were all very, very good.
The only slight problem we had was at the overland border point between the two countries where we we unaware about the time difference of one hour and also the fact we had to visibly confirm we had US$500 in cash on our person. (On reflection we could have shown a credit card - we think- but the pressure was there to get through quickly as the lines were long and people bustling everywhere). This was a bit daunting due to the amount of people milling around and the hectic situation we found ourselves in with language etc. We were also not informed exactly where our pick-up point would be.
However we made a phone call to the tour company once we were through the crossing and we were fully informed about the driver and pick up point and all went smoothly again.
The natural jungles in Costa Rica were great and having the opportunity to see a baby turtle scuttle across the sand and into Carribean was fantastic.
We also thoriughly enjoyed the half-day transit across the Panama Canal and expolring the old city in Panama City.
We would have liked to spend more time in each country, but given our time restraints and the fact we were visiting other countries to meet up with family members, we were fully satisfied with our arrangements.
