Our honeymoon is Costa Rica was amazing. The travel company put us in touch with amazing guides, drivers and chose amazing hotels for us to enjoy their country in style. If you want to remove all minutia and the stress that normally comes with planning and executing an extended trip, book through the travel company and you won't regret it.
I was impressed with their initial plan for our trip, it involved a ton of choice for tour availability each day. They answered all my questions quickly and helped determine the best tours to make this trip unforgettable. Not to mention they recommend tours that really only take up your morning or afternoon giving you plenty of time to check out local restaurants and towns.
All of their tour guides and drivers were early or on time. Except for one tour guide who was held up by a heard of cows on the road up to our hotel and had called to tell us he would be late. Truly spectacular customer service.
We can't wait to get back and do the Western and Southern portions of the country as we heard numerous recommendations throughout the country. Costa Rica truly is spectacular.
Learning all about Costa Rican culture from all the guides and getting their recommendations on local restaurants which were all great.
Kendall from Monteverde was by far our greatest driver, we peppered him with questions the minute we got there as well as on our transfer to Nosara. He was amiable and told us incredible stories and really made the drives fun.
1) White water rafting in La Fortuna
2) Kayaking in Nosara
3) Hanging bridges in La Fortuna
4) Canopy tour in Monteverde
5) Proyecto Asis in La Fortuna area
But honestly all the tours were great and it was tough to pick a top 5.
Tamarindo was less "Costa Rican" than I would have liked, it was a too touristy. Barely any locals visible and the usual Tico food was tough to track down. The local food and culture are half the reason we travel to see and experience the actual culture in a country and not the "Americanized" tourist spots.
Also the hotel in Tamarindo was by far our least favourite hotel. Which is actually an easy feat as the other hotels we were at were all spectacular. But the hotel had subpar food, too many people in one place, and hawkers that bothered you whether you were on the beach or on the hotel lawn. On top of all that I believe we had animals living above our room who seemed to wake up and start wrestling at 4 am. It was very odd. And I wouldn't recommend that hotel.
Other than that... trip was perfect. Thank you again travel company!
