Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Amazing holiday beyond our expectations, very well organised. A fantastic service from Tribes"
Tribes Service: "Everything was explained clearly, our itinerary was confirmed by guide who met us as the airport as well as emergency contact details if there were any problems, we did not have any but felt we had plenty of support if needed. "
Guides: "All guides were brilliant we would not have seen half the wildlife without them. Very knowledgeable and organised. All our private transfers turned up on time and were very helpful and kind."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"


Pachira Lodge
Fantastic, guides amazing, food excellent and very well organised. Lodges perfect so close to wildlife. Tours brilliant
Hotel Presidente
Excellent base for night after and before flights
Parador Resort and Spa
A large resort but felt very friendly and exceptionally well run absolutely spotless. Amazing tours and wildlife at resort.

Our Memories

"We had so many amazing moments it’s hard to only name a few. We saw a sloth with here baby and was lucky to see her come down from the tree for her weekly poop! Waking up to howler monkeys. Seeing so many different types of frogs. In total I think we saw about 10 sloths! Costa Rica is a beautiful country and everyone we met was so nice. We thoroughly enjoyed every place we stayed in."
