As a local agency, we understand better than anyone the importance of adopting and encouraging sustainable practices to preserve Costa Rica's delicate ecosystems and biodiversity. Within our office, we recycle as much as possible and enhance a low-waste policy, and when it comes to creating trips for our travelers, we always support small, locally-run businesses and service providers. This not only ensures that more revenue from tourism stays in Costa Rica to nourish the economy, but also helps local artisans and entrepreneurs grow their business.

    Best parts:
    It was all great - guides and drivers, hotel accommodations and tours. We saw some amazing landscape and wildlife but had an equally good time relaxing in the hot springs or at the pool. Our first night at Evergreen Lodge in Tortuguero was particularly magical when the fireflies started swooping and dancing through the trees. We particularly appreciated the kindness and support of our guide and the team at Tachiz when my husband had a health emergency
    Worst parts:
    No complaints. The drivers made even the long drives enjoyable and the excursions planned along the way helped to break up the the time it took to get from one place to another. On our first rest stop we even got to see two sloths rescued by the local fire department being released back into the woods.
    Summary:
    We began in San Jose and enjoyed exploring the museums and restaurant on our first day. We stayed at the Evergreen Lodge in Tortuguero and Eddie our guide was marvelous.

We stayed at the Evergreen Lodge in Tortuguero and Eddie our guide was marvelous. Loved the flight back to San Jose and the to the Arenal Manoa. There was a tree visited by toucans and hummingbirds right outside our door. Hot springs amazing. Hanging bridges and night hike with a real Costa Rican dinner were awesome. The guide found so many frogs and lizards in a beautiful garden. Our Monteverde guide Oscar was outstanding. He found 3 pair of quetzals and a wide array of other animals and was so knowledgeable about the plant life which was a real treat for our daughters who are involved in outdoor education and environmental science. The crocodile and mangrove tour turned into a personal tour when the other participants decided that all they wanted to see were crocodiles! Great guides at Manuel Antonio and our tour of Kids Saving the Rainforest was so intimate and informative. On our last night at La Mansion we were visited at dusk by iguanas, toucans and howler monkeys who put on quite a farewell show. The driver to the airport coped with all sorts of detours because of the holiday and still got us to the airport early. He shared all sorts of information about the area through which we travelled which made it feel as if we had gotten an extra tour!See more

    Best parts:
    The trip was very well organized. The land transfers ( we traveled to three different lodges), lodging accommodations and tours were all professionally operated.
    Worst parts:
    The traffic in San Jose. We had to go through there twice. The traffic was awful.
    Summary:
    My two friends and myself wanted to travel to places off the 'beaten path'. Alex did a superb job making all of our arrangements. We spent two nights at Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge.

We spent two nights at Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge. While there we went zip lining and white water rafting. Then we traveled approximately 5 hours to the San Gerardo de Dota Area where we spent two night. While in that area we went a guided Quetzal bird watch. We were fortunate and saw some of the resplendent birds! Next we traveled approximately 3 hours to Uvita. We spent 3 nights there. At the end of our seven days we were transferred back to San Jose. The transfer vehicles were all very modern, and well air conditioned. All of the tours were booked for us. Breakfast was included in all locations. I thought the price was VERY reasonable.. Costa Rico is an extremely clean and green country. I hope you have the opportunity to visit. As the locals say ' Pura Vida'.See more
