Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "An amazing experience. Every day had something new and interesting. We were never stressed and able to enjoy every minute."
Tribes Service: "Helped us to get exactly what we wanted. Gave good advice to enable us to pace the trip well whilst seeing as much as possible. All accomodation was excellent. All transfers were punctual and efficient."
Guides: "Very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Very good English and enabled us to get the most out of every trip. Very attentive to safety and individual needs. Drivers all very safe. "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Local guides and drivers were used. Often costs of trips included donations to environmental projects or education. Guides shared knowledge about conservation for us to pass on."


Evergreen Lodge
Idyllic setting surrounded by the forest and waking to the sound of birds and monkeys
Bahia del Sol
Great location right on the beach. Lots of wildlife. Yoga with a view to the Pacific and listening to the waves was a bonus. Good local restaurants
Trapp Family Lodge
Very friendly staff. Very helpful in recommending and biking trips. Could be a little cold in the bedrooms.

Our Memories

"There wasn't a single hitch. Every day we saw or experienced something new and exciting. It was inspiring to see the efforts for conserving this beautiful country and the genuine enthusiasm and pride of the local people for their home. We felt welcome and appreciated."
