Holiday review by Ms. Gillian Glendinning

Name: Ms. Gillian Glendinning

Date of trip: 26/12/2017

Number of people: 2

I didn't fully appreciate the diversification of climates and landscapes until we were in the country, but this trip certainly captured it well. I love they way that eco-tourism is structured in such a way that the benefit is shared broadly in the communities and is not just limited to a few companies.

Guides:

I would like to call out Antonio who ran our snorkeling and walk trip in Cahuita as being particularly interesting and knowledgeable.

Beautiful resort and friendly and helpful staff. We organised additional trips via the concierge, and the horse riding that they arranged at Paco's Horses was one of the highlights of our tip
