Holiday review by Mr Adrian Townsend

Name: Mr Adrian Townsend

Date of trip: 08/04/2016

Number of people: 2

Generally the scenery and environment was quite stunning and some of the destinations were easily the most beautiful we've ever seen. The lower than expected bird/mammal sightings was possible due to the unusually dry weather.

Tribes Overall:

A really enjoyable holiday with just a few hiccups

Tribes Service:

They only blip was at San Jose airport coming home we had to pay another 58 dollars departure tax which we weren't expecting

Guides:

All drivers and guides were very good with the exception of Leo at Evergreen, who was quite possible the worst guide we have ever had in all our travels and his incompetence detracted from our Tortuguero experience

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

During our trip we lost count of the many times the local people thanked us for visiting Costa Rica which indicates our positive impact as tourists

Selva Verde Lodge

Sarapiqui

The food and wildlife we saw there we're excellent, also the organised trips. The accommodation was fine but so noisy, it was situated by a busy main which we weren't expecting. If any of your clients go they would need to ask for rooms 44 or 45 to have the experience you would expect.

Easily most beautiful place location of the entire trip, the average food and the very creaky we're the only downside!!!
