The highlight was Tortuguero National Park. An excellent trip; travelling for circa 3 to 4 hours every other day was acceptable and allowed approximately a day and a half at each new location. Guide was well informed, articulate and considerate. (more)Chris Schaefer

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

Excellent! Varied with wildlife focus and some activities. (more)Angelique Crooks
The wildlife was outstanding - egg-laying turtles on the Carribean coast; whales and dolphins in the Pacific and the plethora of monkeys, sloths, birds, lizards and snakes. However, what our boys really remembered was our white-water rafting experience which was exhilarating. (more)Andrew Clayson
There were many highlights - including watching a Green Turtle laying eggs, spotting the rare Splendid Quetzal, snorkelling with fish and turtles off Cano Island and watching the abundant wildlife including 2 species of sloth. (more)Robert Phillips

That's difficult as there were so many memorable moments. The zipwire above the cloud forest was a massive adrenalin rush. Helping to plant trees by potting bags of soil was great too and a great bonding moment for the group. (more)Sylvia Kenna
The most exciting part of the holiday was probably the turtle egg laying. (more)Abigail Croydon

Seeing turtles was the most exciting part of the holiday (more)Fiona Weir
For my husband it was the amazing variety and beauty of the birds. For myself it was the excitement of seeing an armadillo at close quarters, although all the wildlife was extraordinary! (more)Kimberley and Barry Brown

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? 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?

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

Tortuguero was magical, going everywhere by boat, with an interesting trip to the village and stunning beach. Our other highlight was our Beach Stay in Samara - a perfect beach practically all to ourselves. We booked a Turtle tour and watching a turtle nesting, laying eggs and returning...

Memorable parts? I think all of it. Loved every single minute and was extremely lucky with the tour guide (Vin) and the group! Tips? I would say to not expect luxury accommodation or to have hot water throughout but it is really worth it! Also be prepared that your days in Boquete will be much cooler than the rest of the trip so I would suggest bringing long trousers and warm cover up clothes as many people on our trip got caught out by the drastic change in temperature up in the...
