The trip was great and Diego was a excellent guide. Our family enjoyed it.

The highlighted of the trip were the culture tour at Arenal volcano area, zip lining at the cloud forest and the water rafting at the Sarapiqui River.

Again thank you so much for your customized service to our family.

9 day Arenal Volcano, Rainforest, Caribbean Coast Beach with eco-Plus lodges

We had a fabulous time, Diego was amazing and everything worked out really perfectly. We loved it. Diego really was great, listened to everything that we wanted to do and made it happen. He was great about giving us options without pressuring us. I’ve attached a picture of him with our kids Grant and Finley. I’ve also attached a picture of Grant and Finley ready to zip line which Diego totally made happen. They are only 4 and he found a company that would accommodate us. It was truly one of the trip highlights. We can’t wait to return to

What a TRIP!!!! Oh my gosh – I don’t honestly think it could have been much better!!!! We had such a fantastic time, amazing weather, fabulous stays, food, experiences – Lauren is soooo excited to go back again!!

10 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Beach Itinerary from Liberia airport with eco-Plus lodges

Thank you very much for all your help with the planning. It really made the whole thing so manageable to do with a 3 year old and made our visit to Costa Rica, which was on our list of places to go, possible.

Our trip started in Arenal and we loved staying at the hotel Silence del Campo. What an amazing place. Our kids loved the place and the hot springs. Most of the time only our family was using their host springs. We actually ended up eating at their restaurant for 2 of our diners and 2 lunches as

Mom of 7 and 4 yr olds
8 day Volcano and Cloud Forest tour from Liberia airport with eco-Plus lodges

We had a wonderful trip, thank you. We love Diego [guide]!! He made the trip for us.

Top Three Highlights: Kalumbu Waterpark in Arenal (inexpensive, fun, 90F a good temp for kids, uncrowded at night), Curi-Cancha Reserve in Monteverde (uncrowded, not a terribly demanding walk, easy to see animals), Selvatura (one-stop-shop was nice on bad roads, very good exhibits and well- maintained trails.)

Liberia airport was easy to navigate going and coming. No scam-type shenanigans that I saw other than eager taxi drivers, and the airport employees were quick to move us away from them.

Hotels—loved the in-town locations and
