As a local agency, we understand better than anyone the importance of adopting and encouraging sustainable practices to preserve Costa Rica's delicate ecosystems and biodiversity. Within our office, we recycle as much as possible and enhance a low-waste policy, and when it comes to creating trips for our travellers, we always support small, locally-run businesses and service providers.

    Best parts:
    Wonderful country, amazing people friendly and helpful, spectactular wildlife. Excellent accomodation. First class support and guidance by incountry local travel agency.
    Worst parts:
    Long road trips between destinations, unavoidable given the road network in Costa Rica. Rip off taxi drivers in Manuel Antonio who chare $10 for a three minute drive from our hotel up the hill to the main road where the restaruants and bars are, Full minibus trip from Monteverde to Arenal over unpaved roads. Unavoidable due to the minibus, boat, minibus aspect of the journey apparently.
    Summary:
    We met people in Argentina last year and they suggested we try Costa Rica for the wild life and scenery. It was way beyond our expectations in every sence.

It was way beyond our expectations in every sence. The highlight was our time in Arenal, the accomodation at El Silencio del Campo was stunning, beautiful birds everywhere and igunas wandering around the hot pools. The quality of service we received from our local agency, in Cost Rica was first class in every sense.See more

    Best parts:
    It was all great - guides and drivers, hotel accommodations and tours. We saw some amazing landscape and wildlife but had an equally good time relaxing in the hot springs or at the pool. Our first night at Evergreen Lodge in Tortuguero was particularly magical when the fireflies started swooping and dancing through the trees. We particularly appreciated the kindness and support of our guide and the team at Tachiz when my husband had a health emergency
    Worst parts:
    No complaints. The drivers made even the long drives enjoyable and the excursions planned along the way helped to break up the the time it took to get from one place to another. On our first rest stop we even got to see two sloths rescued by the local fire department being released back into the woods.
    Summary:

We stayed at the Evergreen Lodge in Tortuguero and Eddie our guide was marvelous. Loved the flight back to San Jose and the to the Arenal Manoa. There was a tree visited by toucans and hummingbirds right outside our door. Hot springs amazing. Hanging bridges and night hike with a real Costa Rican dinner were awesome. The guide found so many frogs and lizards in a beautiful garden. Our Monteverde guide Oscar was outstanding. He found 3 pair of quetzals and a wide array of other animals and was so knowledgeable about the plant life which was a real treat for our daughters who are involved in outdoor education and environmental science. The crocodile and mangrove tour turned into a personal tour when the other participants decided that all they wanted to see were crocodiles! Great guides at Manuel Antonio and our tour of Kids Saving the Rainforest was so intimate and informative. On our last night at La Mansion we were visited at dusk by iguanas, toucans and howler monkeys who put on quite a farewell show. The driver to the airport coped with all sorts of detours because of the holiday and still got us to the airport early. He shared all sorts of information about the area through which we travelled which made it feel as if we had gotten an extra tour!See more
