YOU HAVE TO TAKE THIS TRIP. I've fallen completely in love with Costa Rica as a result. It's a perfect mix of wildlife, fun and relaxation, and our guide (Hanzel) was incredible.

The small size of Intrepid groups enables you to become life long friends with the whole group. You do everything as a group together which makes you feel very safe especially if you are a solo traveller. Life is too short so make the most of everyday and take up any offers to do extra activities. You don't go for a holiday - you go to see a country and experience it. Enjoy.
