Excellent trip. Very busy itinerary with a variety of activities. Eduardo was a great leader and was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and the country as a whole. His love of his country is very evident!
Loved challenging myself to some new activities: whitewater rafting, kayaking, zip lining!
Make sure you have a long sleeved shirt or rash guard! The sun is lovely but intense! :) Bring your sun cream!
Stunning scenery, extraordinary and wonderful wildlife, excellent and knowledgable guide in a wonderfully diverse and enchanting country.
Exhilarating white water rafting, contrasting with the stillness of the cloud forrest broken only by the sound of bird calls.
Coming face to face with white faced monkeys in Dan Antonio was fun too!
Andreas was a knowledgable group leader.
Take closed wet shoes for the whitewater rafting, and plastic bags for damp clothing as items don't dry easily in the rain forest despite the high temperatures!
I loved the trip, and would highly recommend it for everyone who loves being active, being outdoors, doing different activities during your holiday, and who does not mind being rained on (lots!). The group was fantastic, the tour leader fabulous, nature and wildlife are just amazing! We saw so many birds, reptiles, bugs and butterflies (mostly due to the unbelievably good eyes of our tour guide Ozzy), the nature is breathtaking and we actually didn't mind taking lots and lots of pictures of trees and leaves and other greenery. The activities were well balanced, and you could fill every hour of spare time with additional adventures, which all most of our group did.
I loved the wild water rafting (grade C), the guides were great fun, and as the first activity it is the perfect ice breaker for the group. I could not fault any of the other activities, all were great fun and a memorable experience. We were all in awe when we saw a Quetzal, apparently a very rare and hard to spot bird. Seeing the sloth with a baby was fantastic, picture perfect. The catamaran and snorkelling tour was a grand finale to the trip.
Ozzy was the perfect guide. Very knowledgable, his eagle-eyes spotted every animal no matter how well it tried to hide. He feels very passionate about his country and shows this with every story or tale.
Inform yourself of any other activities you may want to do in your spare time. Every hotel or lodge we stayed in has a number of options, there is no reason to sit around unless you actually want to do that ;-) Be prepared for rain, take a good quality rain poncho.
The number of options and activities for this trip is great. I would suggest to use the longer trip and add all those activities to it, so customers can choose between the more relaxed and the active trip. I would have liked to travel to the Carribbean cost and see the turtles, but I did not choose the longer trip because the activities was what I definitely wanted.
A burrito from a local restaurant! - if its busy with Costa Ricans then it will be good and well priced.
