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

The night walk was a wonderful wildlife experience. Meeting the Ticos and feeling their pride in their country and how welcome they made us feel as tourists/guests was really special

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

Book in advance Learn some basic Spanish Take waterproof and warmer clothing than you think you may need for the volcanic area and cloud forest Use a rucksack rather than a wheeled suitcase! Use the Lonely Planet Guide

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

Yes to all of those - certainly hope so We travelled on the tourist buses which I guess was better than a hire car, but the latter would have been an advantage in some areas. We accept that flying to destination is not good from an environmental point of view, however.

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

A wonderful experience that makes us want to visit Costa Rica again (for longer)

Dear John, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your vacation for us. We're thrilled to hear that you're experience of traveling to Costa Rica with us was so incredible and that it has wetted your appetite for all things Costa Rican. Itís wonderful that you could see that our trips indeed benefit local people and that by traveling in small groups we do see to reduce the environmental impacts of tourism. It really is a gem of a country isn't it with such diverse ecology and incredibly friendly locals. We've certainly found this ourselves on our own travels and adventures over there. We hope you'll keep us in mind if you do plan to head over there again as we would love to help you plan another adventure meeting more Ticos and seeing more incredible wildlife! Kind regards Jo Ramsey Sales Manager
