Fun family trip

“Our family trip was everything we expected. The transportation was on time and friendly. The rafting trip was amazing along with zip lining and the horseback riding. So glad we were able to experience the beautiful country in this way.”
Fantastic time in Caribbean coast and La Fortuna!
5 - Excellent
  • Zainab Hakim
“We had a great time and liked every place and activity that was part of the trip. The transfers were well coordinated and always on time. Most hotel accommodations were good and location was central to other activities. We were able to customize the itinerary to include Caribbean coast which was also really nice!”
A wonderful trip
