Mats, dad of 6 and 9 yr old from Sweden
14 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Beach with eco-Plus lodging
We had a great time in Costa Rica. We loved all the places we visited. For the nature experience Monteverde with the cloud forest and the canopy walks was the top experience for me. In La Fortuna we had a great time with ziplining and hot springs. In Sarapiqui we had a beautiful and enjoyable rafting experience (we had the whole river for ourselves). Generally there were very few people on all activities, which was nice. No crowds and no waiting. We did shorter walks (around 2 km) in the rainforest in Monteverde, Arenal, Sarapiqui and Cahuita. The kids were Keep Reading →
June, mom of 4 and 7 yr old, traveling with her family and parents
10 day Arenal Volcano, Cloud Forest, Manuel Antonio beach custom itinerary
Our 9-night trip with 2 parents, 2 grandparents plus 4 and 8 year olds, guided by Jose Pablo, was extraordinary. We are ALL sure that we would not have had the trip we did without Jose Pablo and without Jenny’s great approach to family adventure travel.
Jose Pablo met us at the airport, and did EVERYTHING possible to help us have a wonderful trip, facilitating our activities, dining, outings and learning everywhere. And, yes, he really can spot very specific birds and other animals as he’s driving down the road, at which point he would quickly pull over so Keep Reading →
Cinnamon traveled with daugher, 9 yrs.
10 day Rainforest, Volcano, Cloud Forest itinerary with Plus & Upgrade lodges
I wanted to thank you for arranging an absolutely wonderful trip for Matilda and me. We have traveled a lot, but I can tell you that this was truly not only the best vacation we have ever had, but also one of the best life experiences, especially for Matilda, who really blossomed over the course of the 10 days. I really cannot thank you enough for arranging for Gil to be our guide. He was remarkable in every single way – knowledgeable, kind, patient, dedicated, and just all around a lovely human being. Matilda felt so safe and comfortable Keep Reading →
Rose, mom of nearly 4 yr old traveled with her family and mother
12 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Tortuguero with eco-Tico lodges
Thank you for a great trip – our guide Luis was fantastic and we had the best time. We will be back again! I couldn’t speak highly enough of him.
We also met Diego? I think – in Sarapiqui, who was out for lunch while his group were resting
Overall the pace of the trip and the way it went – beginning with Monteverde and ending with Tortuguero- was great.
Tortuguero boat rides with 3.5yr old was no challenge!
All the accomodation was great – even the most “rustic” – Andrea Cristina B&B in Sarapiqui – ended Keep Reading →
Dad of 8 yr old
9 day Rainforest, Volcano, Cloud Forest with eco-Tico lodging
We had the most wonderful trip to Costa Rica, in large part because of our guide, Jose Pablo. Almost immediately, he became a member of our family when he met us at the airport and started engaging all of us, especially our 8 year old. We simply can’t imagine having done Costa Rica without him. We left the airport and headed off to Sarapiqui, learning all about Costa Rican culture and history on the drive out. Discovering that we really liked birds, Jose ‘surprised’ us with a lunch stop at a soda replete with bird feeders (along with great Keep Reading →
Mom of 9, 8 and 4 yr olds
9 day Rainforest, Volcano, Cloud Forest with eco-Tico lodging
We had a fantastic time! Jose was an absolutely wonderful guide, and we recommend him highly!! He recommended activities based on what we said we wanted to experience, and we loved each activity and eatery he recommended. Jose had an uncanny ability to spot very specific birds and other animals in trees as he’s driving down the road, at which point he would quickly pull over so that we could all see – we saw a great deal of wildlife from just traveling (e.g., toucans, iguanas, a sloth, howler monkeys). Jose also introduced us to a wide variety of Keep Reading →
Mom of 4 yr old twins
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 Keep Reading →

Our trip was fabulous and exceeded all our expectations! Jose was an amazing guide and was able to get all the kids so excited about seeing the different birds or other wildlife! He also gave great Spanish lessons for the kids! We will recommend your company to any one looking to go to Costa Rica!

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!!
Where to start – this was my 4th trip to CR, but the first without students and the first for my daughter! She was entranced. The Hotel Aeropuerto was fabulous. The hotel was very nice. Beds were so comfortable my daughter wanted to take one home. 🙂

Dauren was absolutely fantastic with sharing his knowledge of all wildlife, plants, and history of Costa Rica as well as taking care of all logistics for our activities. He was super flexible and wonderful with our two girls as well. Extremely patient and caring.
We loved Silencio del Campo. The hot springs were perfect on site and great temps for our kids and we loved the farm too! We also loved El Encanto. The owner Alex was so hospitable and helpful, it was also so family friendly and we loved
