1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Close encounters with wildlife. Notable moments were seeing nesting green sea turtles at Tortuguero and tapirs in and near the Casa Corcovado jungle lodge.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take binoculars and a camera with a good telephoto lens.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Many of the guides and lodge staff were from the local regions. All lodges promoted conservation messages and promoted responsible behaviour (e.g. to avoid disturbing flora and fauna).

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. It really lived up to and exceeded our expectations.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Very difficult to pick, all 4 areas visited were full of wildlife and adventure. Corcovado was the best part and the 2 hour boat transfer in was a lovely surprise. Zip lining and tarzan swing in Monteverde was exciting. Seeing first tucan.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Leave long enough at each location so that you can fit everything in and wait for changes in the weather. Take a dry bag (back pack) Take bags to separate out damp/wet clothes in the suitcase as things don't dry in the humidity.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not the process of having the holiday itself, but staying in hotels that care about that environment was good.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, really enjoyable and varied, with great wildlife.
