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 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

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.

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?
