I would 100% recommend a trip with Intrepid. My first trip was 6 months ago and I have just returned from my 2nd trip. I love the fact that no time is wasted wondering how to get to the next destination all you have to worry about is meeting at reception on time and a bus takes you to the next adventure. I believe the groups are made up of like minded travellers who respect each others desire to travel and take in the sights and culture of a country. I can't wait until my next trip.

A great trip itinerary to start exploring the incredible variety Costa Rica has to offer. Be prepared for very early mornings to avoid the heat and catch the best wildlife, which we saw in super abundance thanks to our eagle-eyed and expert guide Pedro.
