We spend several months looking at travel service companies for our trip to Costa Rica before we settled on this company. We were not disappointed. Our travel agents planned an outstanding adventure just as we wanted. We arrived in San Jose about an hour late. Our agent and our driver met us there and our agent introduced himself and our driver and gave us a bottle of wine and snacks for our trip to Monteverde. He also gave each of the ladies a necklace, earrings, and bracelet made by his mother.
Every driver we had was on time and very friendly and their English was very good. My wife had an opportunity to practice her Spanish however, which made her very happy.
All the hotels we selected were excellent including the food and service. The hotel in Monteverde, the resort in Arenal, and the hotel in Manuel Antonio. The excursions were excellent as well. We loved the country and it's people. The wildlife watching was the highlight of the trip.
In Monteverde, we selected the sky Tram Adventure and that evening we did a guided night hike in the Cloud Forest. Our only disappointment is we should have selected the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve as we would have seen the Resplendent Quetzal, which we missed. One suggestion is to make it clear if this is a goal of the trip to suggest the Cloud Forest Reserve be selected. We just did not know. Honestly, I didn't know one of our travel companions wanted to see the Quetzal bird as much as she did. She was disappointed she did not get to see it. I told her we'd go back again. Also, it takes a lot of time to travel by land the way we did. We might chose to fly between destinations in the future.
