    I had a wonderful time!! The people on my trip were wonderful and I liked that you could tailor the trip to include the excursions you wanted to do. The one thing that could be different would be to stay in Puerto Viejo instead of Cahuita, just because there's more going on there and we ended up spending most of our time there instead of Cahuita. But overall, the places we stayed were nice, clean, and the adventures were fantastic!
