Our travel agency organized the perfect tour of Costa Rica. Our small group of 4 were treated as VIPs from the moment we arrived at San Jose airport, until the day we flew home. We even received a "welcome to Costa Rica" call and special "goodbye" call from our agency. Every transfer and guided tour was on time and the drivers were good. There were no worries or concerns, each day was perfectly organized and each hotel was informed of our itinerary. Our travel agency provided us with a free cell phone for local calls as well as walkie-talkies to stay in touch with each other. This added an even higher level of security to our trip.
We wanted to experience an environmental tour that would introduce us to the rain forest, the flora, fauna, birds, reptiles & animals of Costa Rica. We were amazed by the scenery and the knowledge of our guides on each of our tours. Costa Rica is truly magical. All of the hotels were interesting and clean, the staff friendly and efficient. We stayed in bungalows & cabins in the heart of the rain forest! The food was very good and served in more than ample quantities. Our last few days were spent at the Belmar Hotel in Monteverde and the luxury of that small inn and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, were a great way to end our stay.
Our only disappointment was that our internal flight with Nature Air from Tortuguero National Park turned out to have a connection at San Jose airport with a 3.5 hour wait for the second flight to Arenal. We were expecting a direct flight, and more time to explore the village of La Fortuna.
We would definitely recommend this travel company and will use Zicasso Handcrafted Travel to help us book holidays in the future.
Tortuguero National Park and the rain forest boat tours, including the 4 hour canal boat ride to the park was definitely a highlight. Monteverde and the amazing mountain views also was a highlight. Not to mention the ziplines!
We would probably take the boat & drive from Tortuguero National park to Arenal, rather that the 2 flights. A direct flight would of course, been perfect.
Our flight from Canada was changed to a later flight and we ended up driving to Puerto Viejo mostly in the dark. It may have been better to stay a night near the airport and drive in daylight to take in the scenery.
