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 Keep Reading →

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. Keep Reading →

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 Keep Reading →

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! 🙂

9 day Rainforest, Volcano, Cloud Forest Itinerary with eco-Upgrade lodging
“We couldn’t be happier with our Global Family Adventure experience. From the start, Jenny was quick to respond to any questions we had, as trivial as they may have been. She was thorough and knowledgeable and made planning this trip a cinch! The only thing I wish I had realized when picking three destinations for our 9 day trip was road conditions. When looking on a map, through the lenses of US roads, distances seemed short. But the 70 miles from La Fortuna to Monteverde actually takes 5 hours. I might have only gone with two destinations as half our Keep Reading →

8 day Manuel Antonio, Osa Peninsula Custom Itinerary with Combo lodges
I wanted to report back about our trip while it’s still close at mind. In short, the trip was fantastic!
First of all, Jose was a wonderful guide for our family. He was warm and friendly, looked after every detail and really did a great job of researching and arranging activities, taking care of logistics, and connecting with us on a personal level. He and Luis were in touch on WhatsApp and shared notes frequently.
Highlights for our super-active kids included a day we spent hiking from Las Caletas to Rio Claro and Keep Reading →

11 day Cloud Forest, Arenal Volcano, Rainforest, beach with Tico lodging
We just returned home from the most amazing vacation! Everything was perfect. Thank you, Jenny, for the prompt responses to my numerous questions, for organising and booking our wonderful accommodations so quickly, and most of all, for pairing us with Luis.
Luis, this was our first experience with a private guide, and we could not have been luckier than to have had you to show us your beautiful country! From the moment you picked us up at the Hotel Aeropuerto until the day you dropped us off at the Playa Negra Guesthouse, all of us enjoyed every single moment. You Keep Reading →

11 day Manuel Antonio, Cloud Forest, Samara beach custom itinerary with Upgrade lodging
We loved Costa Rica, and I see why you were so taken with the country years ago. It’s such a special place, since nature is right up in your face, and the people are so wonderful. My 8-year-old saw so many animals that he gave a presentation at school about them when he got home. They even picked up some Spanish. I think the kids were just as enchanted as we were.
We had a fantastic time with Luis. I found the entire trip so well-planned and we had a great time on the long drives, since Luis Keep Reading →

12 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Beach with Samara Beach with eco-Tico & Plus lodges
We had a fabulous time on our trip! Thank you so much for the planning you did to enable us to have such a memorable experience! There are not enough superlatives to describe Dauren, our guide. It was not just his immense knowledge of the flora and fauna, people and experiences, but his very personable nature. The girls really enjoyed him and were sad when he left us at the beach. He went out of his way to accommodate our wishes and his recommendations for activities like horseback riding and ziplining were much appreciated. He even went on the Keep Reading →
