Tribes Overall:

A wonderful country to visit. The programme Tribes put together fitted our wishes exactly and worked perfectly.

Tribes Service:

Paul produced an excellent package, and the pre-departure brief was very good.

Guides:

May, who was the Swiss Travel Rep who met us at the airport and accompanied us to Hotel Presidente, was lovely, knowledgeable and informative.

Samuel Arguedas Trejos, who was our guide for the bird tour in Monteverde, was superb. Hugely knowledgeable, with an incredible ability to spot birds. He was the perfect guide.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

Costa Rica was the most environmentally conscious country we had ever visited, with every guide and every hotel telling us what was being done environmentally. Very impressive.

A lovely beach resort. Most of the staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, but the atmosphere was spoiled by 2 or 3 of the waiting staff, who were surly and begrudging.
