    4.0 - Good

    Experience was good with Bamba. There were hiccups in connections but they have a whatsapp number and are quick to resolve it. The hostels and the transfers are nice and so are the tours. I liked the 8D7N trip because I got to see a lot of the beautiful Costa Rica. Nice pace too

    Overall the trip went well. We were a family of 4 traveling together. We really didn't like the hostel in San Jose. It was a great place for young single travelers but in no way a place for a family like us. The hostel in Monteverde was a little bit better but old as well. The highlight was the lodge in Tortugero. The ecolodge was nice and the resort was clean and enchanted. The hotel in Fortuna was the most modern with AC in the room. Transportation was adequate and we were always picked up at the time indicated on the itinerary. Only 2 vans out of the whole trip was equipped with Wifi. We had upgraded from a hostel accommodation to a 3 star but I'm not sure 2 of the hostels qualified for the upgrade. I'd recommend this itinerary for people that haven't been to Costa Rica before. Traveling from one town to the next can be challenging as the roads don't have good signage and the poor conditions of the roads make driving quite challenging in my opinion. The planned activities are fun and keep you busy the whole time.

    Hello Samir, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience! Please know that we take your feedback very seriously. We’re sorry if some of your accommodations were not what you were expecting. We will work to find more options for the future. All of your accommodations were at 3 star hotels, except for the Eco-Lodge. Where did you find the accommodation to be a Hostel? Please write to happy@bambaexperience.com at any time and we will look into it. Thanks for recommending us! We hope to see you again travelling with Bamba Experience. Take Care, Rene/The Bamba Happiness Team

    The actual tour plan was great. I felt I got a good sample of Costa Rica. Unfortunately I never saw the word "Hostel" anywhere in the description until after I'd paid and then when I got my actual itinerary (a week before departure) was the point I realised that I would be staying in hostels for the most part. They really need to make that clear in the website description. I usually travel under my own steam and thought that for the last week in Costa Rica I would have a stress free week, however as one of the hostels got things horribly wrong (twice) the trip was tainted. Evergreen Lodge at Tortuguero was fantastic and I was impressed to find out meals were included (which I did not expect for that part) however I have quite severe insomnia so the hostels partying until wee hours flat out did not suit me and I WOULD NOT have booked this had I known they were hostels. The transportation was above my expectations and on time every time and the included day trips were fantastic. Overall I feel that a few bad hostel experiences spoilt the trip but the ability to not have to organise my own transportation was fantastic. Mention its hostels and give people an option to pay more for budget hotels and you would have got 5 stars.

    Hi Jenny, Thanks for your feedback and for taking the time to post a review! We are very happy to hear that you had a great tour with Bamba Experience in Costa Rica. Thanks for mentioning that the itinerary, the Tortuguero lodge, the transportation, and the day trips were fantastic. We always make sure to provide you with the best services to allow you to have the best trip possible. We are really sorry about the "hostels" issue, this was out of our control. It is specified on our website clearly but on the TourRadar website, the categories are not integrated in their system yet so you could not choose which type of accommodation you wanted. We are now being proactive though to let clients know about this beforehand. We are happy you enjoyed this tour with us still and we hope to see you soon on another Bamba trip! Take care, Laure / The Bamba Happiness Team

    Is there an opportunity to do the hanging bridges walk in Arenal?

    Due to scheduling motives, the only way we can fit in the - Hanging bridges walk- in Arenal is by adding a full day tour, which would mean staying an extra night in "La Fortuna".
