    I have never been to CR thought this tour would be great way to get a feel for country. I usually plan my own trips and will book a few 2-3 day tours just to maximize the info and experience. Flew in/out of San Jose Aorport First: Loved the EXTRA cost to see the green sea

    I decided to go with my two adult children, my daughter-in-law and two kids (ages 6 &8) to Costa Rica. I chose a local CR company and was highly pleased with Costaricantrails. They communicated very clearly, got us excellent hotels and tours (we had a custom made itinerary).

    Everything was well organized and efficient. Our guide, Martin, was excellent- knowledgeable/informative, friendly, and a good driver! He had good suggestions for stops along the way from one locale to another. Since he has been doing this for awhile he knew many people along
