Tribes Overall:

Yes it lived up to expectations, Costa Rica is a very ecologically diverse country. It's fascinating and friendly!

Tribes Service:

Very helpful and flexible enough to deal with our vacillation over dates
The holiday worked out very well, with all local transfers and flights etc being efficient and comfortable.

Guides:

All of a good standard, helpful and knowledgeable, the chocolate lady guide was very enthusiastic too!

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

Given that we are tourists, I think we and the tour were socially and environmentally responsible


The places you stayed

Restaurant and bar at Alta Hotel

Alta Hotel

Costa Rica

Comfortable and quiet, if a little out of the centre of town

Evergreen Lodge

Tortuguero National Park

Enjoyable and comfortable, with a real rainforest feel. Helpful and enthusiastic guide and resort staff.

Selva Verde Lodge

Sarapiqui

The staff were very obliging and the wildlife was plentiful
The food was undistinguished, but adequate, but the bungalow we stayed in was a long way from the main lodge, across a busy road, and was rather old-fashioned in feel.

Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge

Corcovado, Osa Peninsula

Something special! Good accommodation, excellent catering and delightful grounds.
All aspects very well done with very friendly and obliging staff and guides

Si Como No

Manuel Antonio

Nice hotel, with spacious room with a fine outlook
Attractive "adult-only" pool and bar
Main restaurant was expensive and disappointing, the more casual poolside restaurant was better.
