Holiday review by Adrian Townsend

Name: Mr Adrian Townsend
Date of trip: 08/04/2016
Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "A really enjoyable holiday with just a few hiccups"
 
Tribes Service: "They only blip was at San Jose airport coming home we had to pay another 58 dollars departure tax which we weren't expecting"
 
Guides: "All drivers and guides were very good with the exception of Leo at Evergreen, who was quite possible the worst guide we have ever had in all our travels and his incompetence detracted from our Tortuguero experience"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "During our trip we lost count of the many times the local people thanked us for visiting Costa Rica which indicates our positive impact as tourists"

Accommodation

 
Alta Hotel
All aspects we're good.
 
Evergreen Lodge
Accommodation and food we're good just badly let down by guide.
 
Selva Verde Lodge
The food and wildlife we saw there we're excellent, also the organised trips. The accommodation was fine but so noisy, it was situated by a busy main which we weren't expecting. If any of your clients go they would need to ask for rooms 44 or 45 to have the experience you would expect.
 
Bosque de Paz
Accommodation lovely position nice walks, beautiful humming birds. Food average.
 
Parador Resort and Spa
Plenty of choice of facilities, very commercialised but we did expect that.
 
Casa Corcovado Jungle lodge
Easily most beautiful place location of the entire trip, the average food and the very creaky we're the only downside!!!

Our Memories

"Generally the scenery and environment was quite stunning and some of the destinations were easily the most beautiful we've ever seen. The lower than expected bird/mammal sightings was possible due to the unusually dry weather."
