    I went on the G Adventures 9 day Costa Rica Quest tour. Our guide, Daniel, was great. Helpful and professional the whole time. Accommodations were sufficient except for spotty wifi. Also, there wasn't any hot water in Quepos but it wasn't a huge issue since it's so hot and humid there, a cold shower kind of felt nice. Other than that, the activities were great. The whole trip went smoothly. Overall, I had a great time. My one recommendation is to bring clothes for cold and hot weather. Monteverde was quite cold (for this Californian at least) and I wished I had brought a few more sweaters. Pura Vida!

    The Costa Rica Quest tour WAS THE BEST! It was packed with options to zipline, jump from waterfalls, white water raft, or simply just take in this incredible country with tango lessons and walks through the cloud forest. Our guide Pamela was full of energy and life. Accommodations were nicer than expected. A lot of reviews call out that activities are not included — duh, welcome to G Adventures! You are paying for transit, accommodations, and a guide from the region — it's a steal and totally worth it! I am a solo female traveller and made incredible friends. One of my favorite ever trips. Experience Pura Vida for yourself!
