Holiday review by Mrs. Kathryn Campbell

Date of trip: 11/04/2018
Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent range of experiences . Wonderful holiday already recommended to friends."
Tribes Service: "Fernanda was excellent and reassured me regarding booking and holiday. Information was excellent. "
Guides: "All staff worked hard to accommodate the individuals and groups. The guide in Ist accommodation held my hand to take me into to Coral Reef . Without this it would not have happened and I loved it. Was very knowledgable about the environment on guided tour as was guide on Walking Bridges. "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Yes. The tourism trade appears to be thriving without spoiling the wildlife and environment. It is made very clear in an appropriately educational way what is acceptable and what is not in association with this. "


Shawandha Lodge
This was my favourite accommodation and destination overall. So different and literally at one with natural environment.
Hotel Presidente
Comfortable and convenient.

Our Memories

"I took a video on my phone of a sloth which we think was "lost" over the restaurant floor it came , over the ledge and then back over to climb a chair - staff were very surprised to see it in those circumstances. Howler monkeys are very noisy and I loved their sound especially through the night in the "superior Lodge"an amazing accommodation. Snorkelling - Ist time amazing. Massage and hot springs for relaxation. Beaches and watching sunset was beautiful. Meeting like minded travellers. "
