    I can't rave enough about this trip. If someone booked me a flight to Costa Rica - tomorrow, next week, in a month, in a year - I would happily pay to do it again. From the first day to the last, the experience was brilliant. Our group was one of fantastic, like minded people. Our guide was so much a part of the group that, really, it felt like he was another awesome traveller on the trip (but one that happened to be native to Costa Rica, speak Spanish, know what was going on and know all the secret places off the beaten track). The trip included hiking, white-water rafting, waterfall-rappelling, kayaking, snorkelling, lots of rice and beans, banana with homemade chocolate sauce, campfires & marshmallows, rainy afternoons, walking in wet boots, sleeping behind a waterfall, warm beaches... If you want long bus rides and 5 star hotels then this trip is probably not for you, BUT if you are looking for an amazing, spine-tingling, multi-modal, culturally immersive adventure - go on this trip, you won't regret it.
