Memorable parts? Tortuguero National Park-beautuful accomodation in the middle of the rainforest with howler monkeys and loads of birdlife very close-boat trip really quiet and special.

Can't pick any one memorable moment, there were too many. Cable car across a forest valley? Wild toucans and Macaws? Being buzzed by humming birds? Exotic fruit and food?... (more)Mike Adams
Brilliant! Most places we stayed in were run by local people and I made sure I bought all my souvenirs from a craft cooperative. (more)Una Carter

Costa Rica self drive holiday, natural history
From
£1,235

Fantastic, absolutely loved it! (more)Clare Sparks
The very best moment was kayaking in Tortuguero: just four of us and a guide exploring the rainforest by river at dawn. The cries of the howler monkeys echoed across the morning mist, and we got up close to crocodiles, turtles and incredible water birds. Priceless! (more)Simon Andrewes

Costa Rica homestay holidays
From
US $98
per person per night
Memorable parts? I enjoyed every moment of my stay but being taught to dance Bachata by my host family would have to be the highlight. Tips? If possible, ask to be placed at Dona Leila's house. She was the most wonderful host - incredibly friendly, very patient with my basic Spanish and an amazing cook. Local benefits? Definitely. I was immersed in the local small village community and the money from my homestay and other tours and activities was helping the locals sustain... (more)Elfie Burgess
Costa Rica eco lodge in a private reserve
From
US $185
per room per night (sleeps 2)
Incredible - the lodge and its views over the mountains and forest were breathtaking and we had the most relaxing time. We will definitely be staying at the lodge again if we are ever back in Costa Rica. (more)Elfie Burgess
They create all their own electricity with a small hydro-turbine... virtually ALL the work done on this coffee plantation is by the owners and locals. They have many LONG TERM employees because they treat them very well, from what I saw and understood. They are also re-foresting pasture land. Most of everything we ate was grown there except a few things they get from local farmers. (more)Korte Yeo
A fabulous situation , beautiful rooms, great service all round... We spent two weeks there and enjoyed every moment .Great thanks to the owners and their parents. (more)patrick heffron
Costa Rica multisport holiday
From
£1,099
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The time spent in the jungle rafting down the river, staying in jungle lodges and trekking to nearby waterfalls. Tips? Don't book the extra adrenaline pack before you go. It's better to pick and choose your activities when you're there. Local benefits? Local transport was occasionally used and the sharing of rooms reduced the environmental impact Overall rating? Really enjoyable and a good variety of activities. Not too much travelling as well (more)James Mead

Memorable parts? Fantastic insight into many different cultures. Stunning and varied scenery in wonderful hot weather from the might of the Panama Canal to the jaw dropping beauty of the rain and cloud forests to the awesome splendour of the region's volcanoes and craters Tips? Do as much research as possible before your trip - I wished I had done more! Try and learn some basic conversational Spanish - I wish I had learnt more! Local benefits? Tourism is an infant business... (more)Douglas Newlands
Tailormade holiday to Costa Rica
From
£1,045

Lots of very memorable moments, but the best was finding a family of sloths at Playa Punta Uva on the Caribbean Coast who were so close we could have touched them. (more)Janet Sutherland
Fantastic! Our time at El Remanso lodge in the Osa Penninsla it was a super place and had some wonderful wildlife sightings there. (more)Jane Fowles
On an early morning bird-watching trail with a local guide, we were lucky enough to see 5 of these beautiful birds... feeding on wild avocados. We sat for an hour as the sun began to rise, driving away the cold night air as the clouds rolled up the forested mountain side. Quite amazing. (more)Paul Smith

The most exciting part of the Costa Rica encompassed trip was zip lining above the trees in Monteverde Cloud Forest and abseiling down the waterfalls on a canyoneering trip outside La Fortuna. (more)Louise Muller
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
The most memorable part was going into the beautiful clear, turquoise and remarkably warm water of the Pacific ocean, for a swim just as the sun was setting - an amazing way to start the holiday. (more)Susie Everest
Costa Rica tailor made holiday, highlights
From
£2,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The stay at Cerro Escondido. It was not touristy, the hike there was great, and the managers were very welcoming. A beautiful, peaceful spot, off the beaten track. Tips? If you go to Tortuguero, go for as good a lodge as you can afford. We felt our guide was not as good as the one from the other lodge. Don't just stick to the well known bits, get off the beaten track a bit to experience the real Costa Rica. Local benefits? Yes! Most guides were local,... (more)Yvonne Chapman

Its safe to drink the water so take a bottle and refill. The food is lovely, not spicy, plenty of fruits and variety with something for every palate. You will take so many photos! Binoculars are...

Costa Rica family activity holiday
From
£2,240
excluding flights
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
Costa Rica tour
From
£1,075

The trip to Tortuguera via bus and finally the boat journey through the rivers and canals was magical and the "town" itself was wonderful, a naturalist's dream! I would recommend it to anyone interested in the beauty of nature, birds and flowers, etc. (more)ANGELA HOLLAND

From
£1,144

Memorable parts? We were paticularly impressed with the quality of the hotels we had chosen. A favourite was the Arenal Observatory Lodge with it's wonderful location. The Hotel Bougainvillea in San Jose was also excellent with fantastic gardens. My husband's main reason for choosing Costa Rica was for the bird watching and he was more than happy. Tips? Be sure that the hotel you choose is in the best location for your activities. Also make sure that you have a good holiday... (more)John Diley
Family volunteering with turtles in Costa Rica
From
£582
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This project and experience was absolutely amazing. As a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children, 8 & 10 yrs old) we decided it was important to not just have a holiday but to do something that would play a part in making a different to our environment for the future. Our 8 year old son, in particular had an interest in Turtles so we decided this would be a great project to work on. We weren't disappointed. The location was stunning, remote (so off the tourist route, which... (more)Simon Wrench
Central America tours
From
£1,120
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Roatan was by far the best stopover on this trip. The people on the tour were fabulous as well. Tips? Be wary of the long travel days. The dossier online makes each stop seem like a destination spot which is not the case. This tour would benefit from adding some flights from like Roatan to Managua to avoid 12 hour travel days, of which there are many in this tour. Local benefits? Yes we took lots of local transportation and really integrated with the local... (more)Angie Watson
Costa Rica jungle accommodation
From
US $135
per person per night
Memorable parts? Being away from it all. The solitude is incredible as is the flora and fauna. Tips? Take a really bright flashlight if you are staying in the tents so you can see any snakes and such on the track when you walk back in the dark. Leave your goretex hiking boots at home and pick up some comfortable boots that you don't mind getting covered in thick mud. Oh, and take snacks that you don't want to live without - like chocolate. Go scuba diving at Isla del Cano to see sharks... (more)Tracey Reed
