One of the best we have ever had. The whole trip was memorable for two main reasons – the variety of scenery and the superb wildlife. (more)Tim Graham
Included memories are - Spider monkeys swinging jumping above us to reach the trees on opposite side of jungle river, finding red eyed tree frogs at night... an incredible display by the resplendent quetzal during a courting session (more)Paula Cooke
The stay at Laguna Lodge was an amazing start with river trips and accommodation overlooking the river. Seeing Sloths close up and watching the antics of the capuchin monkeys was fun. (more)Jean Thirkettle

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

Costa Rica is a lovely place to visit but had we known it was so expensive we would never have signed up to a vacation that didn't have a lot of included activities and meals included. (more)Ian Halliwell
All of it was memorable...each place visited is so different... it's hard to choose. Monteverde for its lush vegetation, but boy can it get cold at night...and tortuguero for its wildlife. (more)Linda Whittingham

Memorable parts?

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... (more)Celia Home

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...
