review 16 Aug 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing magnificent rainforest from high bridges on flanks of a volcano, seeing a turtle laying her eggs, giving bottle of milk to young spider, howler and capuchin monkeys at a rescue centre.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't miss out on tours which give you full experience of the natural history of Costa Rica.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think the money I paid for my tours helped support the conservation and wildlife work and that my tour helped the businesses of the hotel and restaurant owners. I am not sure my consumption of water and the waste I produced was good but as all hotels had signs to reduce water use and I was careful as I could be about waste, recycling where facilities allowed, I hope it was not too great. Obviously there is carbon to consider from the flights...

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good - what I'd hoped and more. Tour leader was excellent, other members were nice and thoroughly enjoyed.
