Fantastic! It was an incredible experience. The places included on the itinerary were just right. The right places in order to get a feel for the countries we visited. I can't stop telling my family and friends all about it. I feel like we did so much and saw so much. I was hesitant to book a group tour in case the group was too large or didn't have similar travelling styles. Perhaps it was a bit lucky, but we ended up in a group of only eight who were all very similar. With Cesar's leadership, it was a wonderful dynamic. Cesar was great to customise our tour by arranging private transportation with additional stops/sights along the way. His restaurant picks were so good! We ended up knowing that not only should you go with him for dinner, you should order what he ordered! Always delicious! I was interested in a couple excursions that no one else in the group wanted to do. Cesar was very helpful to arrange them just for me. The only negative was the one hotel in Copan. It didn't seem to have the same cleanliness standards as all the others and lacked AC (not terrible, but far more comfortable with!) Thank you! ”
Guide couldn’t have been better. Tour well organised and gave opportunities to experience as much as possible within a limited time.”
Scott was enthusiastic, organised, relaxed and great company. He's an excellent tour guide who was so willing to make sure everyone was having a great time. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip, would recommend to any and all.”

With such an outstanding biodiversity protected by a multitude of national parks and marine reserves, Costa Rica is a dream outdoor destination and to help get you started we've put together a selection of our favourite spots in Costa Rica worth visiting.
Located on the Pacific Coast and encompassing a varied landscape of stunning beaches, steamy rainforest and beautiful lagoons, Manuel Antonio is one of Costa Rica's most popular national parks. A plethora of wildlife can be found in Manuel Antonio including sloth, pelican, white-faced monkeys and iguanas, and it's a great spot for bird watching. Water-based activities from white water rafting to paddle boarding and diving around the 12 offshore islands are also a major drawcard.
With lush mountains carpeted with plantations and agricultural terraces, the Central Valley is a particularly scenic region and home to over two thirds of Costa Rica's population. A number of attractive towns dot the region and serve as important centres of arts and crafts with regular markets perfect for a spot of souvenir shopping as well as a host of outdoor activities from bungee jumping to trekking.
Encompassing 26,000 acres of pristine cloudforest, the Monteverde Reserve is home to a diverse range of species including the resplendent quetzal, howler monkeys and sloths, alongside some 2,500 different plant species. It's also a fantastic example of sustainable tourism with income from entrance fees directed back into educative, preservation and research programs.
Situated in the northeast of the country on the Caribbean coast, Tortuguero National Park is famous for the turtle that come to its stunning beaches to nest. Giant leatherback, hawksbill, loggerhead and the endangered green turtles all come here during the nesting season of July to October with 22 miles of beach protected for this very reason.
