7 day Arenal Volcano & Monteverde Cloud Forest with eco-Plus lodging followed by beach time booked by family
We had an amazing time with Luis and in Costa Rica.  All of our accommodations were amazing.  Luis said the Arenal Volcano Inn was a new one for you – it was great.  The pool was super and the restaurant was really nice.
Also, the hotel we stayed at in Santa Teresa was also great and I would highly recommend it for families – it was called the Manala Hotel.
Luis was really great – he had great recommendations for food and activities and

Mom of 9 and 12 year olds
12 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Tortuguero tour with eco-Tico & eco-Plus lodges
Overall we really enjoyed our trip! Luis was a great guide and driver.
My boys LOVED the zip lining in Monteverde!! And I managed to enjoy the first time we went. We went the next day too (bribe to my youngest for going on a bird walk in the morning) – he picked Xtremo – to be fair Luis did warn us . . . . That one was less fun for me –  though the boys loved it until we got stuck for 90 min or so at the top of a mountain waiting

Mom of 8 & 4 yr olds, traveled with another couple and their 8 yr old
9 day Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, Cloud Forest, Samara beach with eco-Upgrade lodging
We had an absolute blast!  Thank you for planning such an amazing trip for us – it was really a dream come true.
The absolute highlight for us was Jose Pablo.  He was so amazing and absolutely made the trip for us.  I never knew guides like this existing in Costa Rica, and he made the trip so much easier and far more enjoyable.  He was extremely patient and entertaining with our children.  I cannot speak highly enough about him.  Thank you for connecting us with him for this trip.
Some other highlights:

Mom of 4, 7 yrs
10 day Arenal Volcano, Rainforest, Playa Negra beach with eco-Plus lodging
The trip was awesome. I wouldn’t say I’d recommend anything. The only thing I wasn’t prepared for was arriving early to Cahuita, not having a room ready and not having any thing easily accessible to walk to the beach or do something until our room was ready. I could have caught that also.
We had a great trip. Luis is amazing, and I appreciate all of your help! We will be returning some day, and hope to work with you then as well.

Mom of 7 and 12 yr olds
9 day Arenal Volcano, Samara beach with eco-Upgrade lodging
We had an amazing trip — loved every minute.
We enjoyed SO MUCH of our trip, just as we did last time. This time around, we REALLY loved the ziplining tour through the canopy at Arenal. It was one of the most memorable things we’ve ever done, and my 7-year-old loved it as much as the rest of us. Walter took us to a wonderful place very close to The Springs that had a gorgeous view — but more importantly, the guides were extremely professional and GREAT with kids. We also had the best time exploring

We had a WONDERFUL time in CR, thank you so much. Luis was great, very informative, very helpful and very accommodating. We couldn’t have done it without you. You provide a great service. Everywhere was a highlight…I really couldn’t choose one but if I had to I’d probably say Tortuguero.

Thanks, Jenny! We had a great trip and a really good experience with both Alice [babysitter] and Luis. Everything went smoothly – apart from our kids! – and we appreciate how well thought out all the details were.

And just a quick summary of a few of our trip highlights, as promised: hiking through the volcanic landscape around Arenal; touring the chocolate producer near La Fortuna (what an unexpectedly great and non-commercial-feeling tour!); relishing the dynamic views of the Nicoya Peninsula and local bird life from the Sunrise Room at Hotel Belmar; visiting the sloth sanctuary in Monteverde and
