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 Dauren on your “What to expect in a developing country”. I was prepared for the worst but was really impressed with drinking water at all locations, electric service, etc.
All in all I would recommend Costa Rica over Mexico or Jamaica any day! I have also told many friends that I would use Global Family and Dauren again.
Thanks so much for a trip of a lifetime!
