We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Costa Rica. We gave our travel company a price, then our agents arranged a wonderful itinerary that took us to three very different parts of the country. We started in the Arenal volcano area, enjoying the views of the volcano and the hot springs. We then went to the cloud forest area and took guided tours with a biologist that explained the local flora and fauna. Lastly we went to the warm coast and saw macaws, monkeys, sloths, and much more wildlife. We said we wanted a mix of activity and relaxation, and our travel company organized a wide range of activities, including whitewater rafting, zip lining, canyoneering, kayaking, snorkeling, and hikes, but spreading the activities over our stay so we still had plenty of time to relax.
The guides on our hikes and excursions were excellent. All very knowledgable and pointed out wildlife (wow the wildlife!) we would never have seen on our own. They all are so proud of their country and wanted us to enjoy everything Costa Rica has to offer. We felt that we learned a great deal about the nature and culture of Costa Rica. Also, the views and sunsets were incredible.
While in the Arenal area we did an organic farm tour/dinner the first day and whitewater rafting/lunch the second day. As it turns out, the lunch was at the same family farm as we had dinner the night before. The meals were very good, but we would have preferred to eat someplace different so as to experience the area as much as possible. During the mountain biking trip we experienced amazing views of the volcano. Unfortunately the road was extremely rocky and a bit difficult to travel on. We would have preferred a dirt road or trail.
