Holiday review by Ms. Susan Keates

Name: Ms. Susan Keates

Date of trip: 04/08/2018

Number of people: 2

Seeing the diversity of wildlife in its rightful habitat was incredible. Sloths visible in the canopy and moving, Howler monkeys calling, variety of snakes including a Boa, Capocin monkeys being cheeky, huge colourful butterflies,toucans,humming birds, parrots and other birds but the highlight was seeing a leatherback turtle laying eggs. The rain in the rain forest was amazing and the sun at the beach and warmth of the water made for a relaxing time alongside the soaks in the hot springs at the volcano. Altogether made an unforgettable holiday.
