Holiday review by Gill

Date of trip: 02/04/2018
Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "This was a lovely trip, everything worked really well and it enabled us to see many of the different environments within Costa Rica with the different flaura and fauna in each one."
Tribes Service: "The Tribes experience is always a good one, this is the third time I have travelled with you. Thank you to Fernanda for this one."
Guides: "All the guides were knowledgable and tried to spot as many things as possible. The drivers all drove safely."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "One great thing on this holiday was the provision of drinking water throughout with plenty to fill up water bottles so we didn’t have to use any plastic bottles. The guides took care to ensure the wildlife was not disturbed by the tour in terms of flash photography and raising awareness of surroundings. The local people employed were charming, helpful and friendly."


Evergreen Lodge
Lovely location in the middle of nowhere. Nice lodgings, food healthy though unexciting. Nice pool.
Bosque de Paz
Really peaceful, very nice room, lovely home cooked food. Hummingbirds on the feeders are delightful.
Hotel Presidente
Functional city hotel, very comfortable, nice rooftop bar.
Parador Resort and Spa
Beautiful resort. Touch of luxury on the trip with air conditioning and food menus! Upgrade to sea view was well worth it.
Selva Verde Lodge
The surroundings make this place great. Lodgings and buffet food is fairly basic; excellent pizza restaurant.
Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge
Lovely environment, really good food. Big outdoor hammocks to relax and watch the wildlife hanging around.

Our Memories

"Seeing the wildlife was our main aim and it was excellent for that. On the Sarapiqui night walk we saw Armadillo which was a treat, we also saw lots of toucans here including the gorgeous Keel Billed which was on the list of what we wanted to see alongside the sloths, and we saw a number of those too, including one very close up in Manuel Antonio."
