I could not have planned this trip alone, and our agent far exceeded all my needs wants and expectations. From a thoughtful arrival gift that was clearly chosen especially for a chef to the surprise after a wonderful meal… birthday cake! Our agent asked all the right questions and did not stop until I had a perfect itinerary. I will be ready to plan for Christmas 2017 this coming January. I am so confidant in this agent's ability to connect me with another perfect, affordable vacation that I probably will let her do it all with no input from myself…. Well I would like to request the South Caribbean again:) It’s hard to put into words except PERFECT. THANK YOU!!!!!
KC Hotel was a beautiful hotel! I love a boutique style hotel and you nailed my taste exactly. The food at the restaurant was DIVINE! Though we didn't explore outside the hotel, we took full advantage of all the amenities- pool, restaurant, room service, which was perfect for settling in. The staff was so accommodating and when my mom had an upset stomach they were quick to respond with relief. The room was so clean and cozy, in particular, my mom loved the fluffy towels. The greeting each time upon arrival by our drivers was enhanced by the delicious passion fruit juice and each departure a breakfast was packed early for us to go.
Caribbean Puerto Viejo
This was my first time flying in such a small plane and I loved the experience. The flights all felt very safe, I’m so glad we didn’t drive to each destination because we loved having more time to explore the area, however when I visit again, I will take at least one long drive to see the beautiful country sides. Our hotel, Blue Conga was a very natural easy place to relax. I was able to spend hours in the hammock. Breakfast was very good and friendly service all around.
Our first outing was changed due to renovations and I was offered a new experience of snorkeling with our hike. My mother and I had the NICEST , knowledgeable most professional tour guide. The driver and captain were confidant safe navigators. The day was everything I wanted and so much more.
The vibe on the Caribbean side is very relaxed and mellow with sweet considerate people. I also noticed how happy even the dogs were! Three days was not enough, but adventure called for me to continue the trip. We had our last meal at a cute hostel that served bar food and cheap drinks without a rowdy crowd but good music.
Pacific Manuel Antonio
WOW! This place is paradise! The photos do not do this place justice. We stayed at Villas Mymosa condominiums and our apartment was larger than some one bedrooms in NYC. We had a perfect room. Again full of adventure, we parasailed, zip lined and spent much time at all the restaurants.
During my birthday dinner, the climax was having a cake delivered to the table from our vacation planner. What a kind gesture and above any of my expectations! The cake was a perfect balance of sweet, light, healthful and indulgente. Topped with a fresh light cream and juicy blackberries, sprigs of fresh mint. Underneath a rich, but airy chocolate cake with a hint of spice.
Private transfers- All of the drivers were prompt and even waiting for flight changes and delays. Safe and friendly to say the least. They told us about our surroundings and the rich Costa Rican culture and environment. The only thing I would have changed in this area would not to have private transfer. I thought we would be in a car but we were in vans, and larger busses made for tours, so I felt like I was wasting a great deal of resources to shuttle just two people around, I really enjoy meeting new people, so I will choose to share rides next time around. That was completely my ignorance of not asking what the mode of private transport would be; car or bus.
