Trip review
Costa Rica

loved their trip to Costa Rica

We are a family of 5 with children aged 11, 12 and 14. We travelled to 5 different centres during our 2 weeks in Costa Rica: Puerto Viejo and Tortuguero (both on the Caribbean coast) then on to Arenal where we did white water rafting and zip-lining. After that we got an internal flight down to Drake Bay (where we had some fabulous trips to Corcovado and Cano Island) and then on to Manuel Antonio for the final few days. We thought the Costa Rican scenery was stunning and we were amazed by the array of wildlife. Tachiz Travel were excellent in that every transfer and trip booked through them worked like clockwork. There were no real hiccups or problems throughout. We also loved the people of Costa Rica who we found very friendly and helpful . We would definitely recommend for anyone interested in eco-tourism/wildlife/adventure holidays.

Best parts:
The beautiful scenery and wildlife of Costa Rica. We loved almost every aspect of our holiday and would definitely recommend the country to others (in fact we have done since we got back). Highlights included the beautiful/laid back Caribbean area of Puerto Viejo, the isolated Tortuguero which was bursting with wildlife, white water rafting on the Sarapiqi and rainforest hikes in Corcovado where we saw Tapir, Coati, Caiman and a huge variety of other wildlife. We also loved the day trip to Cano Island to go snorkelling during which we saw humpback whales, turtles and sharks.
Worst parts:
There were no significant downsides to the holiday. I suppose that in some of the accommodation the bathrooms were fairly basic and could have done with updating. However, that may be a little unfair as in general terms the accommodation, the facilities at the hotels and lodges and the food were excellent.
