Holiday review by Mr. Martin Burt

Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Surpassed all of our expectations"
Tribes Service: "Extremely impressed from start to finish and have already recommended to several friends. The itinerary was exactly what we had asked for and within our budget. Due to our flight times being changed 3 times ( which we booked ourselves) Paul did a fantastic job by restructuring the start and finish to suit us all within the same price. "
Guides: "Friendly, Approachable, Knowledgeable, Punctual and with a Sense of Humour"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "We used all the products provided in the hotels and followed the health and safety guidelines when on guided and self guided tours."

Our Memories

"White water rafting on the Pacuare River within a backdrop of a wonderful tropical forest and waterfalls. Snorkelling on the Coral Reef at the Cahuita National Park followed by a guided walk through the jungle observing the monkeys,sloths,raccoons and birds. The fast boat trips to and from Tortugero Lodge on waterways and canals. Sunset at the Tamarindo Diria Resort relaxing in their Beach Garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The beach location of the Tamarindo Diria Resort magical times looking and listening to the waves,sand ,surf and blue sky - swimming, sunbathing, reading, drinking and eating."
