Holiday review by Mrs. Hermione Salwey

Date of trip: 04/02/2017
Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "We had a lovely time"
Guides: "Always waiting for us, drove well and had mostly a good command of english"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Certainly beneficial to us! I didn't feel that anywhere we stayed that any of the hotels had too much impact on the jungle and they certainly gave good employment to the locals, who were mostly young, were passionate about sharing their country with us, learning more about their inheritance, and their use of english"


Le Cameleon Boutique Hotel
Very clean bright and attractive. Had to get out of bed to turn off the light!! So silly. Otherwise pretty garden, birds, monkeys in the tree near the beach. Sea too rough to go far as they had had torrential rain, so no snorkelling. Bicycles for hire across the road.
Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge
Wonderful trip to get there. Arrived to a tractor to pull us up the steep track to the Lodge. Very good welcome, teams of men to lug the luggage. Large well spaced bungalows, comfortable, but not palatial, lovely outdoor shower under the stars! Good food, dinner for all at 7pm which made for speedy service. Good guides, birds and animals. Enjoyed trip to Caco Island but sad that there were a number of other boats and paradise island was shared with several others. C'est la vie I suppose.
Studio Hotel
Comfortable, handy as a place between trips. Interesting modern art.

Our Memories

"Loved all of it. What was a bonus was that the trips, air, boat etc were fun and experience in themselves. If there was something interesting to see we would stop and enjoy even in transit."
