We had an excellent experience with this Costa Rica travel agency. The owners of the company helped us plan a wonderful family vacation over spring break, including all of the details that made the entire trip run smoothly. They were readily available while we were on the ground in Costa Rica for trip modifications on the fly.
This company has a wealth of contact and resources to make the travel experience run very smoothly. Their employed drivers/guides are very engaging and kind. The activity vendors that they choose to use are also uniformly excellent. The resorts they chose for us were lovely and high end. Once I landed at the airport, where we were welcomed like family, I knew that everything would be perfect.
We enjoyed all of the activities. My favorite was a night nature hike in the Arenal volcano area. My wife enjoyed most spending time at the resort in the Manuel Antonio area. My daughter enjoyed viewing all of the wonderful animals. My son best liked the hot springs at the resort in La Fortuna.
There were so many enjoyable and memorable moments--river rafting on the Balsa River, zip lining in La Fortuna, sunset sail and snorkel in Manuel Antonio, hanging bridges tour in Arenal, etc.
The resort where we stayed in La Fortuna is one of the favorite places I have ever lodged.
I would probably not choose to do the ocean kayaking tour. It was too long and arduous for the teens. I would have enjoyed it more without the kids. It was a really great option (one we picked from a list), but I might do the lower intensity mangrove kayaking tour if I had to do it over.
I might build in a little more time for relaxation. By nature, I tend to try to do everything possible on vacation (and there is plenty to do in Costa Rica!), but an off day or two in order to take advantage of the beautiful resorts might have been more rejuvenating. Or, next time, stay longer!
