Holiday review by Jon Cable

Date of trip: 11/04/2018
Number of people: 1
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Overall the holiday gave me a very good insight into Costa Rica and its people. I saw a wide range of wildlife (although the resplendent quetzal eluded me!). "
Tribes Service: "This was my second trip organised by Tribes and I wouldn't hesitate to use you for future trips."
Guides: "The guides were generally very knowledgeable and did their best to find and point out interesting wildlife."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "I think we could learn a thing or two from the Costa Rican approach to environmental responsibility, certainly within the locations that I visited."


Evergreen Lodge
Fun to get to, great to stay in
Bosque de Paz
A really friendly welcome here and again very comfortable
Hotel Presidente
Comfortable and adequate.
Parador Resort and Spa
I wasn't expecting an American style hotel but it did make a change from the lodges and I guess it was nice to have a couple of days with aircon!
Selva Verde Lodge
Another very comfortable lodge

Our Memories

"Getting relatively close to wild animals and birds in their own habitat was certainly a plus. "
