A comprehensive trip including many special places in Costa Rica. The leader and group of 16 were both excellent. If you don't like birds and slow walks through rainforest spotting plentiful, but elusive wildlife, then this holiday is not for you. While the trip is rated as leisurely, day 1 started at 6am in an effort to beat the traffic in San Jose. We however saw 2 three toed sloths at the place we had breakfast on the way to Tortugero. Its a busy holiday with 2 nights in most places but generally starts were before 9am. If you want to see wildlife you need to look at the best times early morning or evening

An interesting trip with a wide variety of flora, fauna and climate. As always, a good group and a good group leader make a trip like this and we had both.

Beautiful country with stunning wildlife!

If you want to see wildlife then this is the country to visit, you will not be disappointed! The weather is warm pretty much everywhere except at altitude (but nothing us Brits can't handle), very laid back itinerary with plenty of free time to work on that tan. The hotels and lodges are of a very high quality, as is the food, we were spoilt with all the fresh tropical fruit on offer!

Great trip, beautiful country, new friends...what more could you ask?

I read all previous reviews before booking and they were all useful information - if you are planning this trip I suggest you do likewise. I booked this as the dates suited me but we had a bird-watching expert and it was interesting to be part of a group some of whom were 'on a mission'. Despite the specialism I don't feel that we 'non-birders' missed out on anything and our guide also pointed out animals, gave information on culture, geography, etc. All in all a well paced trip and having two nights at each place meant less pressure to pack up every morning.

Wonderful trip and so full of wildlife. Costa Rica is a beautiful country with welcoming people. This trip took us through many eco systems from high altitude cloud forests, humid tropical forests, very very humid (couldn't believe it could get much more sticky!) rainforests to beautiful white sand beaches. Most of which were in protected national parks. Saw so much wildlife it would fill a guide book.

This was a fantastic trip covering a range of different environments. Highly recommended to anyone interested in flora, fauna and ecotourism. It was all I have learned in Geography and more!!

Highlights of Costa Rica

We drove some 1,300 miles (or was it kilometres?) in two weeks, travelling every second day so quite a lot of time was spent on the bus albeit with regular stops. The country is very varied with distinct geographical zones.

A good introduction to Costa Rica

Read the trip notes carefully - they are accurate. This is a basically one day travelling, one day exploring throughout the 14 days. The hotels are very good and the food excellent. However, if you like to go slightly off the beaten track then this is not the trip for you. It is a leisurely trip and our guide reinforced that many times. He never went off the programme - if there was free time then we had to research our own activities or optional walks.

I went on this holiday expecting great things and this did not disappoint. The variety of wildlife was second to none. The hotels were all different and to a very good standard. The organisation was good and having two nights at each location gave you chance to experience each of the very different Eco Systems in the country. The guide Johnny was friendly, knowledgable, and went the extra mile often in his free time.
