Client Rating for Costa Rica 5/5 from 216 reviews

Isolated, stunning setting. Self-sustaining regime: impressive. Welcome and food = equal to Rancho Naturalista. 24 person capacity, in lodges built from the forest. Trip to Carara National Park ( 1 ½ hours: driver Carlos = v chatty, attentive and cheery), north sector, primarily to see scarlet macaws. Good guide (Franklin), but we weren’t expecting to be part of a group – another couple were also present. However, we had excellent sightings of scarlet macaws. Changed itinerary so we stayed at Macaw Lodge an extra day (as it was so beautiful there)instead of going back to San Jose. SwissTravel re-arrangement: fast efficient, easy!
