H. & E. Shone
From the moment we landed at San Jose airport the trip greatly exceeded the expectations of both of us. The word that sums up the trip was “diversity”:- of climate, topography, accommodation, and natural history. We saw every type of rain forest, the Caribbean sea and the Pacific Ocean, the mountains & volcanoes, probably 400 species of birds, including Humming birds, Vultures, & the highlight, a pair of Quetzals.Also monkeys, coatis, aguttis, raccoons, both two & three toed sloths, crocodiles, caymans, snakes, exotic frogs & butterflies. The key to a good tour is to have a good leader. We were very fortunate in having Johnny Villalobos who was an expert in just about everything, he was absolutely first class. In addition our group of 16 all got on together extremely well together, all like minds. If you like nature go to Costa Rica, & try to get Johnny as your tour leader. One piece of advice. Get to San Jose one day early to recover from the journey, Exodus can easily arrange this.
