    The great diversity of this country, the climate and geographical changes, together with the plants, birds and mammals. (more)Alan Nunn
    The highlight was Tortuguero National Park. An excellent trip; traveling for circa 3 to 4 hours every other day was acceptable and allowed approximately a day and a half at each new location. Guide was well informed, articulate and considerate. (more)Chris Schaefer

    That's difficult as there were so many memorable moments. The zipwire above the cloud forest was a massive adrenalin rush. Helping to plant trees by potting bags of soil was great too and a great bonding moment for the group. (more)Sylvia Kenna
    The most exciting part of the vacation was probably the turtle egg laying. (more)Abigail Croydon
    All of it was memorable...the wildlife, the scenery, the activities we did, including zipwiring, canyoning and whitewater rafting, our group and group leader and especially the amazing friendliness of the Costa Rican people. (more)Jocelyn Owen

    Seeing turtles was the most exciting part of the vacation (more)Fiona Weir
    For my husband it was the amazing variety and beauty of the birds. For myself it was the excitement of seeing an armadillo at close quarters, although all the wildlife was extraordinary! (more)Kimberley and Barry Brown

    Memorable parts? Snorkelling in Caye Caulker, Belize, was an amazing experience! Nurse sharks, stingrays and turtles, not to mention oodles of brightly coloured fish, seemed completely oblivious to our presence, and Hol Chan Marine Reserve, with its dazzling array of corals and fish, was stunning. What a fantastic day! Just as good, but for different reasons, was the memorable Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave - wading through water; scrambling up, over and under rocks; and marvelling at the...

    Memorable parts?

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

    Definitely white water rafting on the way from Cahuita to San Jose was the highlight. A great day out, the river was perfect. Lots of adrenaline and lovely refreshing water. An amazing lunch was laid on for us as well by the side of the river. (more)Elaine Bettaney

    Memorable parts? The "adrenaline" activities - horse-riding, rafting, canyoning. Watching the children playing in the hotel pool at Arenal while the volcano puffed in the background, and feeling slightly uneasily like a citizen of Pompeii... Sitting one metre from an egg-laying turtle. Tips? A really strong insect repellent - ours was sold in a metal canister as it dissolves plastic, and seemed to be more effective than other people's! Definitely do the optional kayaking at Tortugero... (more)Hilary Mackintosh

    Memorable parts? I think all of it. Loved every single minute and was extremely lucky with the tour guide (Vin) and the group! Tips? I would say to not expect luxury accommodation or to have hot water throughout but it is really worth it! Also be prepared that your days in Boquete will be much cooler than the rest of the trip so I would suggest bringing long trousers and warm cover up clothes as many people on our trip got caught out by the drastic change in temperature up in the...
