Tribes Overall:

Brilliant itinerary, just the right amount of time in each destination.

Tribes Service:

Beyond excellent! Very happy with Rory, rearranged our return trip with no fuss. Thanks - really knew his stuff and we seemed to get more out of our visits than other travellers we met up with.


Put excellent, just one proviso - thought the Monteverdi guide could have shown us more. She seemed to be following other guides not leading. All others were fantastic!

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

Walked the walk and talked the talk! Really impressed.

The places you stayed

Walkway at Selva Verde Lodge

Selva Verde Lodge

Costa Rica

Smack in the rainforest - great guides. Very clean if simple lodge - perfect

Hotel Belmar

Hotel Belmar

Costa Rica

Great place: loved coffee, beer & fruit & veg!
Our room - top of lodge was great, just that we had a storm 1st night (lost power & breakfast by candlelight). It felt like the roof was going to blow off!

Can't blame hotel - just the weather!

Playa Potrero, Guanacaste

Upon arrival saw standard room. Looked awful. Spoke to reception who said I could upgrade for a cost, so spoke to manager who agreed to upgrade for nothing. Took 15 mins! New room great (hot tub in garden), everthing else perfect. Ltd dining menu, but only ate in one night as there were lots of good restaurants very close.

My wife had a massage and was very happy.
