Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "You really gave us everything we wanted and so much more. The itinerary was perfect and your colleagues in situ were professional, friendly and above all fun! We were educated on the absolute wonder that is Costa Rica. Everything was perfect and we can’t wait to go back! The icing on the cake was the up grade at Parador Resort it truly was heaven, especially seeing “flash” the lovely sloth on the way to our suites! Totally recommending Tribes to anyone who asks and look forward to you helping us on our next adventure. You’ve helped create memories that will last forever! If I was your boss I’d give you a raise. Thanks for listening to me and making my vision our reality. "
 
Tribes Service: "The itinerary was perfect. Rory listened to me and made my vision a reality. The icing on the cake was the up grade at Parador Resort which I have no doubt was Rory's doing as he knew this was for my 50th and my son's 16th and 18th birthday's which all occur this year. "
 
Guides: "All guide were professional, friendly and above all fun! We were educated on the absolute wonder that is Costa Rica. Everything was perfect and we can’t wait to go back! "
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "This was one of the most educational and sensorily inspiring holidays we have ever undertaken. Everyone we met in Costa Rica were so happy and rightfully proud of their country. We saw more wildlife than we ever imagine and we have all returner to England richer for the experience."

Accommodation

 
Alta Hotel
We were only there for an afternoon and one night - the hotel was very clean and functional and gave us our first taste of Imperial Lager and Costa Rica Expresso Coffee - what a treat!
 
Lomas del Volcan
This hotel offered an explosion on the senses - what an amazing place for a hotel - the view of the volcano at breakfast time was awe-inspiring, especially as we were joined by Coati-Mundi and all manner of birds each morning.
 
Parador Resort and Spa
This was our favourite hotel. I am sure the upgrade helped but the sight of 'Flash' the Sloth on the way from reception to our room and then monkey's in the trees next to the restaurant at lunchtime made us realise what a special place this was. The staff were very attentive and happy, the accommodation was sumptuous and the food great.
