    Memorable parts? Every day with new discoveries of Costa Rica, beautiful cycling experience, local tour leader Memo and his fantastic crew member Luís and Ronald, and variety of holiday experience in two weeks made this holiday the best I've ever been. Tips? Be prepared for rice and beans three times a day for two weeks ;) Local benefits? Yes, absolutely, in all the trips (including optional) I felt that local people were supported in their business, be it a local restaurant... (more)Agne Bajoriniene

    Wildlife holiday in Costa Rica
    From
    £629
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Seeing magnificent rainforest from high bridges on flanks of a volcano, seeing a turtle laying her eggs, giving bottle of milk to young spider, howler and capuchin monkeys at a rescue centre. Tips? Don't miss out on tours which give you full experience of the natural history of Costa Rica. Local benefits? 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? Fantastic insight into many different cultures.

    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 family adventure holiday
    From
    £2,149
    including UK flights
    Memorable parts? The friends we made, the beautiful unspoilt rainforest, the abundant wildlife, and the lovely beaches. Tips? Prepare for a wide temp variation - cooler and wetter in the forests, and very warm and dry on the beaches. Take insect repellent, sunscreen, a waterproof and a hat. 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
    £2,695
    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
