My adult son and I had a fantastic time in Costa Rica with the travel company. It began with our travel agent in Boston. I explained to him the type of trip I wanted and he was able to come up with a 12 day itinerary for us. He sent us a detailed description of what we were to experience and he was able to accommodate some extra things that I wanted to do. Two days before the trip, I was sent an app so I could check my daily schedule on my phone. When we arrived at the airport in Costa Rica, someone was waiting for us and took us directly through our hotel. The entire trip felt very well scheduled. We went with a group of people to Tortuguero for three days and had a fantastic experience. All tours and food were included there. From there on, we had a private driver and he was very knowledgeable and flexible throughout our trip. We loved having a private driver. We then went to the Arenal Volcano area and had a wonderful time. The hotel was fantastic with an amazing view of the volcano from our room. We enjoyed this hotel! Every guest had a private casita and the grounds were quite beautiful. From then we traveled to Monteverde and had an exciting time in Selvatura which is a nature park with suspension bridges and ziplining. From there, we went to the Pacific coast and visited Manual Antonio National Park. We saw tons of animals and at the end of the tour, we went to one of the beaches in the park. From there we went ATV riding, catamaran, night hikes, etc.... Our contact was very welcoming to us and she was always available by phone if I had any questions. This is a great tour company and they took care of us very well. I would love to go again!
The most enjoyable part of the trip for me was seeing all of the animals and ecological systems in Costa Rica. The animal diversity is tremendous- from day to night, animals were everywhere. I posted many photos on facebook about the animals I saw and everyone asked me what company in Costa Rica I used to tour the country. We like adventure so we tried to do as much as possible. We feel that we saw a good taste of Costa Rica and can't wait to go back. We went on four different night hikes and saw an incredible amount of animals. A highlight of the trip was when we were in Tortuguero and went on the turtle nesting tour. We were able two feet away from turtles laying eggs, then covering them up with sand and then we followed the turtles back into the ocean. The night ranger made sure that everyone was following the rules and of course there was no photography. Even without photos, that was an experience that I will never forget. Our tour company gave us everything we asked for- and more! All hotels were excellent!
There is nothing I would do differently except for to stay in Costa Rica longer! It was the trip of a lifetime! Use this company with confidence. They were very good to us.
