Tribes Overall:

Overall the holiday gave me a very good insight into Costa Rica and its people. I saw a wide range of wildlife (although the resplendent quetzal eluded me!).

Tribes Service:

This was my second trip organised by Tribes and I wouldn't hesitate to use you for future trips.


The guides were generally very knowledgeable and did their best to find and point out interesting wildlife.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

I think we could learn a thing or two from the Costa Rican approach to environmental responsibility, certainly within the locations that I visited.

I wasn't expecting an American style hotel but it did make a change from the lodges and I guess it was nice to have a couple of days with aircon!
