Everything was exactly as advertised. We had an amazing vacation. The activities were great, all of the tour guides were personable, everyone was appropriately safety conscious, and everyone was on time. The same thing for the drivers -- they were all personable, good drivers, and on time. the hotels were as advertised and what we were looking for. The travel agency checked in with us at least 3 times during the vacation to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. They also gave us a travel bag, which turned out to be very useful, as well as some water bottles, a wildlife guide and map of Costa Rica (which we all loved). I highly recommend this company.
Everyone in our family has a different activity that was their favorite (a mark of a good vacation). Personally, I liked the night guided hike through the jungle the best, my husband liked the river rafting the best, one son liked rappelling down the waterfalls best, and my other son liked the sunset sail the best. Same thing with the hotels. Everyone liked a different hotel best.
The only thing my husband and I would do differently is to skip the sunset sail. We expected mostly a snorkeling trip with some sailing. Neither my husband nor I are big drinkers, and for a lot of the people on the trip, getting drunk was a big part of the trip. Also, we are quieter people, and there were a lot of people on the boat. The snorkeling was an afterthought and the water was not very clear. That being said, the sunset was amazing, we saw dolphins close up, and my 13 year old son loved this activity.
