Reviews for Costa Rica family holidays


review 3 Jan 2022

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

The whole tour was amazing but the best was the tour guide Juan Carlos - he was exceptional (knowledgable, funny, infinitely patient, amazing with kids and flexible when needed.) Trip highlight was Tortuguero national park - the boat trips seeing wildlife were amazing and the fab turtle shaped pool at the hotel was a big hit with the kids!

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

Encourage an interest in wildlife before the trip (eg David Attenborough programs) as some kids really got into it whilst others preferred to get back to their phones :-( Take light quick drying clothes as can rain at any time. Take antihistamine cream for insect bites as kids can react more than adults. Just book it - we LOVED this trip and my 9 year old would repeat it all tomorrow if she could!

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

Yes, we felt the operator had considered the environment where possible and chosen hotels/activities to support local people. The tour guide also took us to local (good) restaurants and educated us about conservation in Costa Rica.

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

The holiday was 11/10! Pre-kids we did a lot of group tours and this was one of the best! Our daughter had the experience of a lifetime on a well balanced tour of fun, education, adventure and travel. Would not hesitate to recommend it!
