My trip went very smooth. The trip was well organized. The standard large group tour to Tortuguero connection had no problems. The guide at the Aninga Lodge was excellent gets 5 stars. The pickup at El Ceibo restaurant and drive to Tabacon was pleasant. I had a great talk with my private driver all the way. The Tabacon Spa & Resort is the place to stay. I am happy the first hotel was full at final booking. Room was 5 star. I chose the buffet the first night and was overwhelmed with the food to select from. The second night tried the hotel restaurant and had a great meal. I very much enjoyed the solo singer during the meal. Tabacon Hot Springs adjacent to the hotel is the most beautiful spot on this earth. A must see place. There is so much activities at Arenal. I did the Balsa White Water Rafting and loved it. The trip from Tabacon to Tamarindo was ok. The private driver on the first half spoke very little English and the vehicle had a strong cleaning chemical smell. I needed to keep the window open for fresh air. I was glad it was only for half the journey. The second half was with several other passengers. This drive was without any complaints. The Cala Luna Hotel is a distance from the town of Tamarindo but is a great place to stay. I was scheduled for a premium room and was upgraded to a spacious Villa with private pool. The front desk staff were fantastic. Always a smile and willing to help. The distance to town is 2-3 miles depending if you do the low tide beach walk or the road walk. I did the walk 3 times during my stay. I have to give this travel agency 5 out of 5 stars for this vacation.
I enjoyed it all. Each location is so different.
Now that I have seen the different locations of Costa Rica I plan to rent for a month in Tamarindo and invite my friends to come and visit me. I may save my final days after my rental to stay at the Cala Luna.
