Lovely Costa Rican Tour

“We had a lovely welcome by Felipe and found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the country including the plants, birds, wildlife, politics, etc. He didn't try and rush us and always happy to answer any questions. Couldn't have been more helpful and enthusiastic. Also Paulo from Arenal
Star was extremely helpful and stopped for bird watching or frogs whenever he saw something he thought we would enjoy”

“We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful trip through Costa Rica that you organized for the six of us. GWA really fulfilled our expectations as we truly enjoyed discovering and exploring the different parts of your beautiful country and with all the many reservations you arranged for our transportation, hotels, tours, etc., we never had any problems along the way and everything went very smoothly.
All the guides we had were all very knowledgeable and friendly, and provided us with great experiences. One guide in particular, Felipe from GWA, was incredible, all of us treasured and enjoyed the time we spent with him and we felt we had made a wonderful Costa Rican friend! Should we return to Costa Rica, we would definitely contact you. Muchas gracias y pura vida!

Our 13-Day tour of Costa Rica, the Caribbean to the Pacific, arranged for the six of us by Green World Adventures, GWA, based in Cartago, Costa Rica was absolutely amazing and highly recommended. Since none of us had been to Costa Rica before, this trip was perfect in that we not only got a wonderful flavor of the country, but it also included most of the must-see areas as well, along with some white-water rafting and zip lining. Though there were many, many reservations required for our trip, (six of us), including hotels, transportation, tours, etc., we never had any problems whatsoever. Also, all the guides on the tours were very knowledgeable and welcoming! One guide in particular from GWA, was Felipe. All of us thoroughly enjoyed him and cannot give him enough praise, as he was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and took excellent care of us, so that we felt like we were travelling with an old friend! What we also loved about GWA, is the fact that we were not only dealing with a local Costa Rican company but also a company with one of the highest Certificates for Sustainable Tourism, (4 out of 5,) given out by the Costa Rican Tourism Board. Green World Adventures is truly a gem and we would definitely contact them again should we return.

Please give our best to Felipe!”
