    Thank you for your feedback, Melissa. It’s great to hear that you loved Costa Rica and you enjoyed your trip. We were sorry to read that the hotel Magic Mountain did not meet your expectations. This is not one of our standard properties we use on this trip but due the Christmas and holiday season our standard lodge wasn’t available. And thank you also for your comments on the activities at Arenal Volcano which were booked out when you arrived. We will talk to our local team to prevent this issue in the future. Thank you again for taking the time to provide feedback which will help us to improve the trip for future travellers. The team @ World Expeditions
