9 Day Custom Itinerary with private guide

“We’ve just returned […] I wanted to write to you right away to let you know that we had a fabulous time and that Kevin is truly an amazing guide

he was so great with the kids (and with us) and we felt very taken care of the entire time (well, until we were dealing with Aeromexico and staying extra night in San Jose!). All the hotels had our reservations, all of the rooms were the ones that we selected– perfect!

Thank you for giving us the confidence to travel abroad on an adventurous trip with a 3 and 5

“We had a GREAT time. It was worth it and I hope to go there again.

Thanks for all your help. It worked out marvelous. Luis was just amazing. Volcano Poas, I have no words to describe it. It’s breathtaking. My sons loved the crater and La Paz waterfalls but they loved the blue morpho butterflies the most. The hummingbirds and toucans were awesome. The white faced monkeys!!! Oh my God. We also loved Baldi Springs and ran into a couple of Americans there. Arenal Volcano is beautiful. We capped the tour with Antonio Manuel National Park & visited the

“We really enjoyed CR and would easily go back.

Luis [guide] was good in every sense. On time, polite, worked with the requests of our kids, us, and my parents, treated our bags well. He was friendly to both our kids. His car was clean, comfortable, and safe, and he tied in our car seats very well. He knew everything we asked about and made real efforts to show as much as he could to us. A very good ambassador for CR.”

“Our experience FAR exceeded our expectations largely due to Kevin’s outstanding guiding.

We feel so lucky that you connected us with him for our trip. We can’t thank you enough for planning and organizing such an affordable and family-friendly trip for us. You met every requirement we asked for—specifically, adventurous but safe. It truly was a life-changing experience for all of us!!”

“We had a great trip.

The itinerary worked well for us and Luis was a wonderful guide. Highlights for us were: seeing Arenal laval flow at night, boat ride in Sarapiqui, zip-line in Monteverde (my husband’s fave) and flashlight frog tag at Alex’s inn (Andrea Cristina B&B). The boys had a lot of fun finding all the frogs/toads in the dark.”

“A month out – we still have visions of our lovely Costa Rica trip with us.

I found a coffee bean in my jacket pocket, an Imperial beer label tucked in with a bunch of work papers, cocoa pods in my kids backpack, and of course we still have some Costa Rica sand in our shoes.

In spite of the travel hiccups [missed flight connection]- we had a great time. Thank you for helping us get through those things as quickly and efficiently as possible so that we could return to having fun.”

“It was a fabulous trip and we appreciate the planning that you did to make this trip easy and enjoyable.

Kevin [guide] and Alex [owner of Andrea Christina B&B] went above and beyond any expectation. Kevin is an excellent driver/guide/naturalist. He relates to all ages very, very well and picks up on US nuances nicely. We all fell in love with him.”

“Your trip details and plans were amazing.

All of the lodges were very nice especially La Quinta. My wife and I both agree (and we’ve traveled a lot) that this was one of the best trips we’ve ever been on. Thank you so much for putting together such a well planned trip which was full of adventures we could do as a family.”

“Some of the highlights: Wildlife boat ride in Sarapiqui, La Paz Waterfalls, White sand beach in Cahuita, Sloth Reserve.”

“Our trip was excellent!

I can’t say enough about Kevin [guide] he went way beyond my expectations. He was very professional, knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile. He has a great personality for leading tours with adults and children. He is also a very patient driver and truly cares if everyone is enjoying the tour. His birding skills were superb and greatly appreciated by me. I am not sure if I told you…but I have led small group tours in N. America, Europe and Africa (for 16 years) thus my praise for Kevin comes with knowledge and

“It felt like being a kid again on a family vacation.

Every day there was something new and fun and I didn’t have to do a thing to make it happen.”

There are two valuable benefits to Global Family Adventures: the ability to meet the needs of everyone in the family and the removal of any vacation organizing stress. As a result, we were able to do so much in a relatively short amount of time without ever feeling crunched for time.

What an amazing thing it is to meet the kids for lunch in the middle of Costa Rica
