Tribes Overall:

In the round very good. The best bits exceeded our expectations, but there one or two small things fell below.

Tribes Service:

It was a very good service provided by Tribes from booking, to information to support. The consultant ( Rory) always available to answer queries. The itinerary was full and all the guides and drivers turned up as scheduled


The whole country is focused on making sure tourist enjoy themselves and have a positive experience. The guides are generally enthusiastic and informative.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

Holiday was really varied with great animals and sight seeing versus high adrenaline activities versus beautiful beaches. The locals are really supportive and friendly. It was great for a family looking for a fun and exciting holiday

It was good for what was needed. But I'm not sure San Jose is a must visit

Lomas del Volcan

Nice hotel, pool and rooms with a good restaurant.It was a bit out of the way which was its only inconvenience

Trapp Family Lodge

Hotel was a bit tired but fine in the context of Monteverde. Very close to the cloud forest park but quite far from town. Perhaps it lacked facilities for when it was raining outside

The gardens at Capitan Suizo are full of wildlife

Hotel Capitan Suizo

Amazing hotel. Great location, great food, great facilities. A true treasure.
