    Back form Costa Rica Active Adventure (13 days). Had a fabulous time. The best part of this tour was the wide range of activities, all the transportation handled, a super funny & awesome CEO (guide) & more. Costa Rica is amazing including the people. Really got a sense of their pura vida lifestyle and can't wait to go back, this time on my own. Things to consider if you go: there was this expectation of constant tipping (guide handing out envelope) which I prefer to decide on my own if deserved; and arranging many of the group dinners at somewhat pricey restaurants when I would have preferred more free time to do my own thing and cheaper (find local digs).. which I did more later in trip anyway. So, if you go ensure you get some of that solo freedom time in as well to your own discovery in towns (be safe-smart) along with the group included itinerary. most of the activities were awesome but I'd skip the included bike ride (gravel road & boring) and the volcano hike at Arenal. My top 2 activities were the ziplining (with superman/tarzan at end) and the 2 days of rafting & stay at RIO ecolodge (I could have stayed there a week!) & all the wildlife we saw. Highly recommended trip to see much of what Costa Rica has to offer.

    These guys are crooks. They sold me a trip to Costa Rica during the rainy season with no disclosure despite having a 20 page info packet and refused to put me on a different trip or let me cancel when I realized the issue for myself. What is the point of booking a group trip if you are going to be tricked into going during the wrong time of the year. Absolutely do not book.
