Flawless planning and execution!
From the beginning, the trip representative was eager to find out about and satisfy our wishes for this Costa Rican discovery. First night was at a classy San Jose hotel with free breakfast in a beautiful outdoor dining room. The next two days where in a quiet retreat hotel in the rainforests where is the rain stopped just enough to let us enjoy our excursions to waterfalls and the typical village closeby . We were supposed to stay in a suite but were upgraded to a large villa with our own Jacuzzi! Lovely welcomed surprise!
We were then taken by a travel company driver to our final beach destination by the Caribbean Sea. Hotel was to our liking as well . Food was marvellous and service pleasant. Hiking and snorkeling guides were most knowledgeable, on time and generous with information on the local fauna and flora.
I would definetely recommend the travel company to anyone considering visiting Costa Rica - especially for the first time. Considering the quality of hotels and private drivers on four occasions, the cost was very reasonable.
Our first full day in Costa Rica with our driver/guide was magnificent! He took us to La Paz Waterfall gardens. Yes, the waterfalls were beautiful and impressive, but visiting the animal refuge, coming in contact with butterflies, local frogs, monkeys, sloths, etc was unforgettable.
Our organic coffee plantation Tour was also very memorable with our guide on the morning of our departure. Coaster Rican guides, I think, are even nicer than Canadians!
Costa Rica is a much larger country than we anticipated. Drives were quite long because the road system is not very developed and there is a lot of traffic in city areas. Next time, we would consider taking domestic flights from destination to destination within the country.
