This travel agency provided my family of 6 with an amazing Costa Rica Adventure (despite my having waited till the last minute to plan the trip). Our agents put together a package of tours to please all my family members. I knew the trip would go smoothly when despite the 1.5 hours it took to get through customs, our driver was still waiting outside the airport with a smile and welcome gifts! Each scheduled tour guide was exceedingly prompt, friendly, and a wealth of information. We stayed in a mix of apartments and suites, all of which accommodated our large group comfortably. Our hotels included Tamarindo Blue Apartments, the master suite in Casa Amanecer, two rooms next to each other at El Viandante, and two rooms next to each other at Hotel Los Colinas. The travel company really listened to us when we described the needs of my large family and how we wanted to stay in close proximity.
The highlights of our trip were the private tour of organic farm/cooking lesson with a local family...it was a unique opportunity to experience the true culture of Costa Rican Families, and an absolutely lovely dinner with conversation. My children enjoyed getting to "juice" a sugar cane and make tortillas. On the adventure side, our favorite tour was canyoneering in Fortuna!! The guides were safety minded, but with lots of fun/mischief. The Monte Verde Cloud Forest Hike was fabulous, mostly because our guide was an 'ecological encyclodpedia' and extremely adept at spotting wildlife for us to view. We even managed to see the elusive Quetzal, the highlight for my bird loving husband. And the Tarcoles River Safari was also a great place to spot birds...we saw over 19 species including MaCaws flying in pairs...this tour guide was so engaging and made the tour a huge success. I highly recommend this travel agency to anyone wanting to visit Coast Rica, and would happily work with our agents again in the future. Thanks!
Loved Canyoneering, Organic Farm Tour, Monte Verde Cloud forest,
Prompt Tour Guides made traveling easy and stress free.
I would probably spend more time in central Costa Rica and pass on the beach....While my kids truly enjoyed the beach activities, the travel to and from the beach to the rainforest areas is time consuming, and I prefer the rainforest areas more.
