/>We had the two most wonderful weeks in Costa Rica. The whole family is just mesmerized by the beauty of our new favorite country. It would not have been the same without your excellent quick work on the organizing and booking side of the trip planning. Thank you so much.

Luis was the best! To travel with him as a guide just exceeded our expectations and elevated this trip to a fun, interesting,

8 day Rincon de la Vieja Volcano & Samara Beach Itinerary

Traveling to Costa Rica during Covid

We left from Midway Airport. The lines were short and spaced out, everyone was wearing masks, and very few shops/restaurants were open. We flew out with Delta, so the middle seats were open and entering/exiting the plane was regulated. On one of the flights there were a few people that had to sit next to each other and they were offered vouchers for other flights.

When we got to the Liberia Airport, lines were spaced out and everyone was constantly reminded on Covid protocols. Even with those in place, it was very fast

Ned traveled with his husband and a friend
9 day Arenal Volcano, Cloud Forest and Manuel Antonio Beach

Global Family Adventures had been recommended to me by multiple family members and friends who had utilized their services in the past and said we would miss things if we didn’t go through Jenny. They were definitely right! From the moment we met Dauren in San Jose, we had the best time learning about the culture and history of Costa Rica while getting to see the most incredible flora and fauna. Dauren had a keen eye for anything moving in the forests whether that was on a walk or when we were driving between destinations. He always seemed to

Cloud Forest, Uvita, Esterillos Este Custom Itinerary- lodging & logistics only

We had an AWESOME!!!! vacation to CR again.

We really, really liked Trogon lodge. SOOOOOOOO beautiful if a bit chilly (which we knew but still was odd). Great service, extra beautiful grounds and good food. And of course birds!!! Roads were crazy! What an experience even after all of the other driving we did. I was certainly (Literally) on the edge of my seat getting there :-)!!

We loved La Cusinga…. but we already knew that. 5 nights there was perfect. I can’t imagine ever going to CR without visiting there for at least a couple of days. The people/staff

10 day Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest, Manuel Antonio Beach with eco-Upgrade lodging

We had a fabulous time! Travel to and from home was smooth. Dauren is the best!!! When we ate dinner the last night before our flight back home, we discussed our top three experiences – Dauren was in there with Zip Line and Horseback Riding. He made the trip!!! He always had great suggestions and helped us decide on activities and places to eat. Your family is going to love hime next Christmas when you go! He knows his craft and he knows all about the nature and history of Costa Rica.

I suggest you consider getting input from

8 day Volcano, Rainforest, Beach with eco-Upgrade lodges

We had a fabulous time and wanted to thank you for all of your help!
I also can’t stress enough how wonderful Gil was. He immediately connected with our kids and made our experience a great success. I don’t know if other guides do this, but he also took photos during activities and sent them to us. That was very appreciated since we didn’t bring our phones with us to several excursions. I loved that he was available on What’s App. I hope others do the same.

In regards to any feedback, just a few thoughts:

10 day Volcano, Cloud Forest, Samara Beach itinerary with Upgrade lodging

We had such a great, and exhausting, trip that we spent the weekend recovering and sleeping 🙂

Highlights:

Senda Monteverde: staff was incredible, accommodations were great, food was really reasonable, wildlife on the premises (coati, armadillo, aguti)
Arenal Springs Resort: we loved the pools and the accommodations, great that they had a playground too!
Hanging bridges in Monteverde
Dinner at Villas Kalimba by Roberto and his sweet puppies (we were the only diners, so it was great given our squirrelly kids!)

FYI: The car seats in Dauren‘s van were really basic and didn’t quite

12 day Rainforest, Volcano, Cloud Forest, Samara Beach Itinerary with combo Tico & Plus lodging

Thank you again for an incredible trip. It was an amazing experience that we will not forget.
First of all, Jose was incredible. Not only was he so incredibly knowledgeable, but his enthusiasm, kindness, humor, and ability to be with the kids were out of this world. Our trip simply would not have been as good had it not been for Jose. He went above and beyond any call of duty in order for us to have a great trip, was always relaxed, and ready with ideas, constantly searching for wildlife and a neverending source of knowledge no

Our family trip to Costa Rica was a trip of a lifetime and we will never forget the memories that were made. What made our trip so rich and stress free was having Luis as our guide and naturalist. He taught us so much about Costa Rica’s amazing culture, wildlife and biodiversity. Luis took us on amazing hikes and pointed out monkeys, sloths, snakes, birds and insects which we would have never seen without him. It was so nice that he drove us to each destination and a relief to not to have to worry about directions. Luis was
