Number of people: 4
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "A perfect holiday for the family (2 daughters aged 17 and 13)."
Tribes Service: "Alex was very knowledgeable and approachable. Would highly recommend. "
Guides: "Everyone we met, from the guide who picked us up from the airport to Fernando at Tortuguero and Roy at the Arenal hanging bridges tour, to Sky adventures at Monteverde was extremely helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better service. "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"


Evergreen Lodge
Very practical lodge with a lovely pool area and excellent food. Amazing to see a sloth, monkeys, lizards, a snake and a huge toad just wandering round the gardens.
Hotel Presidente
This hotel was really just a pit stop as we had so little time in San Jose. It was clean and comfortable.
Lomas del Volcan
We loved this place. It didn't even matter that it rained for hours on end as it is such a beautiful location and watching the tremendous storm from the veranda was a highlight The pool area was lovely and the breakfast healthy and plentiful.
Trapp Family Lodge
Lots of wildlife to watch from the terrace including butterflies monkeys and hummingbirds. The hotel was clean and practical and the staff friendly.

Our Memories

"We loved the Arenal hanging bridges tour, the Sky Adventure zip lining, watching turtles lay eggs in Tortuguero and the beautiful warm waters of Tamarindo bay. "
