    Costa Rica is a nation and a culture of community. Thus, it is no surprise that our CEO, Jorge Mendez (a Tico himself), should be so adept at making our 16 member trekking group a community. Even more compelling is Jorge’s knowledge of the ecology... Read more

    Access to great holiday experiences, you can get closer to the culture of the country you choose to visit, not a generic tourist holiday where you could be anywhere in the world.

    The trip was packed with activities and provided a glimpse into a culture that I would not have gotten to experience if I traveled on my own. It was also nice to have an itinerary already set up and travel arrangements made for me.

    It was an amazing experience of local culture and nature. You wouldn't get that experience by travelling on your own.
