10 day Volcano, Rainforest, Beach tour with eco-Plus lodging

It was great to meet your family while we were at Danaus. Leo was a great guide, very knowledgeable, a safe driver, and a wonderful person. We packed in a lot of activities and made many memories! Your pre-tour packet and the details on optional activities really helped us prepare for our trip. We were happy with the different places we stayed at, and all of the lodging staff made us feel welcome.

All in all, we had a great experience & we would use your services again.

8 day Volcano, Rainforest, Beach Itinerary with eco-Plus lodging

We had an absolutely wonderful time. We had so many fabulous experiences that it is hard to pick out highlights. The kids tell me their favorite activities were the zipline/pools experience we had near Arenal, the jungle cruise on the Sarapiqui, and the horseback ride we went on with Brigette’s horses in Cahuita. Finding animals and learning about plants and Costa Rican history, culture, and language from Luis really deepened our experience. We all enjoyed our time with Luis and my husband and I remarked on his tremendous professionalism, incredible knowledge, and fun, easy temperament. We just liked being

We had a great time, and I can’t thank you enough for everything. Luis was a wonderful guide and we all learned so much. I have A LOT of thoughts on our experience and, with your permission, will dump them all here for you to take or leave as you will! I’ve been working in marketing a very long time so I can’t seem to prevent myself from weighing in when feedback is requested!

Overall experience:

Having a guide like Luis was so helpful – the minute we exited the airport we had a guy in our faces

We are so very grateful for Jenny’s help in organizing our trip. Not only did she help us book everything and provide us with advice on everything from accommodations to site seeing and packing, she also patiently answered our questions each step of the way. When our departure was delayed at the last minute (by a full day) Jenny rearranged everything for us. Our guide Luis was also absolutely amazing. He ensured that we were comfortable each step of the way and guided us throughout our visit. It seemed there was not a question he did not know the

15 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Tortuguero with eco-Upgrade lodges

Just want to say we had a fabulous time in Costa Rica.
It was amazing.
Gil was fantastic. He came across as very passionate about his job and his country. He had so much time & patience with my kids (particularly my non stop talking five year old).

We loved all of it.
The ziplining was amazing. We did it in both Monteverde and Arenal. The kids loved it so much and my 5 year old absolutely loved the tarzan swings. She is still talking about them.

We absolutely loved the accommodation in Arenal with

10 day Manuel Antonio Beach, Osa Peninsula, Dominical with eco-Tico lodging

We had a wonderful second trip to Costa Rica in early July, this time exploring the Pacific coast; despite our traveling during the rainy season, the weather was, once again, phenomenal, allowing us to do all the adventures we wanted to. Leo picked us up at the airport and was our guide for the first couple of days of our trip before handing us off to Jose Pablo for the remainder of our adventure. Leo was such a kind, thoughtful and big-hearted gentleman and shared with us his incredible knowledge of botany during his time with us including natural

12 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Beach with eco-Plus & Upgrade lodges

We had a fantastic and memorable trip, and enjoyed each place we visited. Although we traveled comfortably, we felt like we got a sense of the real Costa Rica and not some generic resort version of the country. Luis was knowledgeable, personable, and patient, and his advice about activities and pacing was spot on. We especially appreciated the flexibility and ease that came having Louis, we could adjust based on weather and how the kids were holding up, and we didn’t have to argue about directions! The people of Costa Rica were so warm, friendly, and welcoming to tourists.

Once again our huge thanks to you and to Jose for facilitating such a fantastic trip for our family. As you know we travelled with our daughter Chloe (5) and son Austin (2.5) as well as my sister in law Meg for most of the trip and our itinerary centred around 2 main destinations; the Rainforest, Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui (at Selva Verde Lodge) and the Volcan Arenal (at Arenal Observatory Lodge). We had just been to my brother’s wedding at a resort in Mexico and were looking forward to a week of family-friendly adventure, nature and relaxation prior

Thank you SO much for organizing our trip around Costa Rica! We had a fabulous time, and we are in constant awe of our fabulous guide Gil who lead our 6 year old on adventures every day up and down nature tracks, examining every single creature that we came across (and they were many!) while teaching us about it with enthusiasm and deep knowledge.

We are recommending Costa Rica, this tour and your company to everyone within earshot! 🙂
