Copa de Arbol
Such an amazing place, from the boat ride in to the bungalow & incredible staff. Just can’t rate this place highly enough. True paradise and the highlight of the holiday.
Alta Hotel
Lovely hotel for our last night in Costa Rica.
Bahia del Sol
A lsmall beach front hotel with nice pool & bar area. Just needs some TLC in some areas in the rooms.
Hotel Belmar
The food was first class in this hotel and had stunning views from the bedroom balcony.
Lomas del Volcan
Lovely accommodation with great views of the Volcano.
Radisson San Jose
A clean functional hotel and served the purpose of a comfortable bed to sleep in following a long flight and to get ready for our trip. We know that we were placed there as it was the only place we could be collected from for our rafting trip. There was nothing wrong with the hotel it just doesn’t compare to some of the other outstanding hotels we stayed in.
Rios Tropicales Lodge
A truely memorable experience. Incredible scenery and wildlife. Our guide Jonny was first class and felt safe and looked after throughout the rafting trip.

Our Memories

"The two day White water rafting on the Pacuare River and the lodge at Rio Tropicales was an amazing experience. Such incredible scenery & lying in bed listening to the roar of the river was unforgettable. The Osa Peninsula was also spectacular and saw some incredible wildlife."
