Costa Rica Nature Explorer by PeterJB, 9 Jan 2019
Holiday Rating:

A wonderful, tailor made tour of Costa Rica, exploring a beautiful country and watching fantastic wildlife.

We spent 18 days in Costa Rica on a tailor-made trip, with an emphasis on watching and photographing wildlife. We had two nights in a city-centre hotel in the capital San Jose, three nights at a beach resort on the Pacific coast, and the rest of the time at five nature lodges in different locations in the rain and cloud forests. Most of the time we drove ourselves in a hire car. All the arrangements worked perfectly, and we were very impressed ...

We had two nights in a city-centre hotel in the capital San Jose, three nights at a beach resort on the Pacific coast, and the rest of the time at five nature lodges in different locations in the rain and cloud forests. Most of the time we drove ourselves in a hire car. All the arrangements worked perfectly, and we were very impressed with Geodyssey and their local agents. The places we stayed were all very different and each had their own character, but we enjoyed them all. Whenever it was time to move on we didn't want to leave, but we were also eager to "discover" the next location. We had a number of tours booked in advance, but also had plenty of free time for exploring on our own: the balance here was just right, so we felt we did justice to the places we visited without ending up too exhausted. And we saw lots of wonderful wildlife!

Rating for tour operator:

Geodyssey were very helpful right from the start. They listened to our ideas and requirements, made helpful suggestions, and put together an initial itinerary for our consideration. The first version was very close to what we wanted, but we were able to make a few suggestions for changes and additions, and we very quickly had our perfect holiday all planned out. At no point did I feel we were being sold a "package", the whole holiday was tailored to deliver just what we wanted. As well as a detailed itinerary, we were also given lots of background information about the country, so that we felt well-prepared by the time of our departure. Even once we had paid the balance of the holiday, Geodyssey were happy to answer any late queries we had. We were given emergency contact details in both Costa Rica and the UK, so we always felt safe and secure. I cannot fault the service we received from Geodyssey, they were knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and professional at all times..
