Holiday review by Mr. Garrett O'Hanlon

Date of trip: 21/02/2017
Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Very well organised ina complex multi Centre trip."
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "most excellent but one at corcovado was too focused on trees when everyone went to see animals. People became bored and he didn't sense it."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"


Aninga Lodge
Nice people,food average but ok.remote location but with good level of comfort.fantastic howler monkey noise at4.30 daily. You won't need an alarm.
Bosque de Paz
disappointing. terrible food options with literally no choice at all (if you don't like what they dish up you don't eat !) pre payment of $20 lunch and $22 dinner with not even an indication of what the no choice food will be.rigid fixed meal times ( it felt like a 1950s cheap English bed and breakfast ) draught roared in through the windows and door which are all very ill fitting.lovely humming bird feeders at which we got lots of photos but they are worth a two hour visit not a two day stay. Would not recommend as a location to stay.
Parador Resort and Spa
large and commercial but lovely with still plenty of wildlife in the grounds and at nearby national park. food service good alacrity and options,service slow at times but plenty of options a ten dollar taxi ride away in town.nice people.would recommend.
