Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "It was amazing. Loved the biodiversity and variety of locations. "
Tribes Service: "Rory was fantastic and new exactly what I wanted. We met Fernanda in Tortuguero. Lovely girl."
Guides: "All brilliant!"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Very very impressive. "


Evergreen Lodge
Loved the location, but a hairdryer would have been useful as it was very damp. two nights is long enough here due to the dampness/humidity. It was nice eating together at breakfast and in the evenings. Food was perfect, but not a huge amount of choice. Wildlife was amazing.
Hotel Presidente
The room was huge! Very well appointed. Food in the hotel was excellent, and staff very helpful
Lomas del Volcan
Lovely room with volcano view and private jacuzzi. Perfect in every way. Very good food.
Monteverde Lodge and Gardens
Another lovely hotel with fabulous grounds. Great walsk in the cloud forest.
Hotel Capitan Suizo
This was the best hotel in terms of food and restaurant service. Max the head waiter was amazing! Really lovely friendly hotel and good location.
