Wow- what a great vacation we had in Costa Rica. We are very experienced travelers, therefore we usually plan and book our own foreign travel, but we just did not have enough time this year. Through Zicasso Travel, we worked with these agents with this Costa Rica travel company to help plan our trip- the process was easy and fast to get an active itinerary nailed down. Costa Rica has plenty to see and do so we wanted door to door service to maximize our 8 full vacation days.
Part 1: The first two days we spent at Arenal Volcano visiting La Paz waterfall garden, going on a Safari Adventure and then rounded out the day on a canopy zip line.
Part 2: We took a quick flight to Drake Bay/Corcovado National Park. Getting to the Drake Bay Lodge was an adventure in itself- plane, 4 wheel drive, then boat to the lodge. All went smoothly. We spent several days touring Corcovado National Park, basically a zoo outdoors, and snorkeling at Cona National Park. The area was very remote and not filled with many tourists.
Part 3: We took a boat from Drake Bay by boat to Siepe and were picked up and brought to our Hotel in Manual Antonio. The hotel had a great view and was centrally located within the Manual Antonio area. We took a guided a hike into Manual Antonio then at the end of the day spent time at the part on our own- recommended by our agent. On our last day we went on a wonderful Horseback ride to a remote waterfall
Drake Bay/Corcovado Park was a favorite for my wife and I. The remote location, adventure getting their and remote natural beauty were beyond compare.
Beyond the locations and adventure we went on, out biggest take away from the trip was the kindness and enthusiasm of the Costa Rican people. From the drivers, guides, lodge hosts and support staff we felt welcome. Their enthusiasm for their Country was contagious- we left knowing much more about the history and culture of Costa Rica then we ever expected.
Of course we would stay longer and maybe take a day or two with nothing planned.
Will return again and spend more time at Drake Bay.
