Just wish to write and thank you for all your arrangement of our trip to Costa Rica! I suppose you are aware that the weather conditions were a bit disappointing at first, and my preconceptions of rain in Central America proved to be wrong – instead we had this Northern Europe type of dull, continous rain for the first days. BUT: we had amazing experiences even then, and the weather improved. All your arrangement worked out excellent, nothing went wrong and all professionals (guides, drivers etc) were nice, helpful and interested. We lilked the hotels, clean and all with good gallo pinto!
We went on some extra excursions in Monteverde, S:a Elena Reserve, husband did early bird-watching, horse-back riding for our daughter, she and her brother did zip-line, three of us went for the Trapiche tour (which was very interesting!). After Monteverde we went to Manuel Antonio where the rest of the family united with us, and we finally went to Cartago to visit the family where our eldest daughter stayed when she was an exchange student some ten years ago. She has visited them several times, and kept in touch over the years.
We all loved the country, and our youngest daughter are already planning to go to Costa Rica when she graduate from high school. She would like to take a combined language – surf course, and then maybe go to some volunteer project and stay about 6-12 months.
