Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Everything ran like clockwork. From the moment we got through Immigration, Tribes were there, making the whole holiday experience so straight forward."
Tribes Service: "Rory was great. We were kept informed throughout. No issues whatsoever."
Guides: "Very knowledgable and enthusiastic, providing top class service."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "I feel that we have contributed to an economy and culture that nurtures nature."


Bahia del Sol
Loved the location on the beach front. Comfortable room and lovely gardens.
Hotel Presidente
Good location, average restaurant, shame that the main entrance was undergoing major works.
Lomas del Volcan
Fantastic view of the volcano in superb setting. Accommodation was top class.The only negative was that because of the isolated location we were “locked into” the onsite restaurant which wasn’t great and quite expensive.
Great location, really nice staff, lots of birds and wildlife in the garden.

Our Memories

"We booked a trip to Cano Negro. This turned out to be a fantastic choice. We saw so much and recommend this trip to anyone who loves to watch the wildlife. We also booked a guided night walk whilst in La Fortunate. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw so many wonderful amphibians and other creatures. We came away with some fantastic photographs."
