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

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

From
£2,758
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the holiday was encountering unexpected wildlife up close! Tips? I would recommend that you should not spent too much time travelling but spend a few extra days at a good base. Travelling in Costa Rica, despite the relatively good roads, is not quick and can be quite a challenge. Costa Rica is also very expensive for everything!
