Really loved Casa Corcovado and the Osa Peninsula, especially the sundowners overlooking the ocean!
Yes it lived up to expectations, Costa Rica is a very ecologically diverse country. It's fascinating and friendly!
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.
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
Comfortable and quiet, if a little out of the centre of town
Tortuguero National Park
Enjoyable and comfortable, with a real rainforest feel. Helpful and enthusiastic guide and resort staff.
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.
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
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.
