    Most of the hotels were poor, the transportation was basic, no activities or meals included; most of the days we were on our own, and the guide was not present; taking this trip or going on your own is the same, the only difference is the cost that could be much lower It was the worst trip that I had in Central America

    1.5 - Rather poor

    Accommodation was poor and cheap, most of the time; The guide did not communicate anything about the country, he was not interested in making this trip a pleasant experience ; he was absent most of the time and when present, just playing with his phone; he was not documented, and you could not rely on him Te guide was acting like a tourist; his only concern was to invite people for dinner This is a tour where you are by your own most of the time - no guide, no program Activities are not included There are other tour operators where by paying the same price, or even less, you get decent accommodation , meals and a daily program If Tucan is calling this kind of trip an Adventure Trip, they should cut the price by half, as for a cheap hotel , public accommodation and a guide that does not do much, it is not worth to pay what they charge for, you are better on going by your own, his only concern and almost the only time when he was to be seen was to meet at 18:00 to go for dinner -

    Trip was not what we expected. No included excursions, poor transportation, some poor hotels. Decent tour leader. Public busses were terrible. Three hour small boat ride to get from lodge to bus station town.

    Our guide was extremely helpful and despite having a group aged 21 to 70 did his best to accommodate everyone. He had a cheerful and friendly attitude. The accommodation was, except for one hotel very noisy and at times it was difficult to sleep. The rooms were basic, often stuffy with no frills, however one at Queppos had a roof terrace with small pool and another at Monteverdi had nice views. The accommodation at Tortugeuro despite being basic was very authentic and lovely and quiet, just the noise of animals and no traffic! The journeys were easy with our guide to help and the boat rides really added to the whole experience. As a vegetarian the food had little variety but was healthy, generally rice and beans or avocado salad. Costa Rica is a lovely country; we went to see the wildlife and countryside and we saw masses however we would have felt less rushed if the tour had not been focused on adventure activities. Sometimes visits to the National Parks; which were included in the holiday price, seemed rushed as we had to get back for others to go on off on adventure park activities such as zip wires etc.

    Excellent guide. But awful hotels.
    Tucan Travel commented on this review
    We are sorry that the accommodation on your tour didn't meet your expectations. We use three star hotels in Central America. They are just a place to sleep, with every day being packed with optional excursions and activities.

    Fantastic trip! Everything I had hoped for. Saw lots of amazing animals. Part of me wishes I'd gone in dry season as it rained nearly every day, however this meant that it was really quiet and not so busy with tourists so there's always a plus side.

    It is a great site for looking at different offers. I am very excited about my upcoming trip later down in the year. I have recommended TourRadar to friends and family who want to travel. It is simple to book and secure tours. The communication is fast from tour companies which are needed when considering investments such as tours.
