G Adventures Costa Rica Active Adventure Reviews

A great trip – would massively recommend.

This was the first trip I took on my own, arriving in Costa Rica from Britain with no idea who I was going to meet. G Adventures organised all of the logistics (airport transfer, bus rides, adventure packages..etc), so all I needed to do was show up and have loads of fun! My group was lovely, with people from all over the world, and our tour guide (Alonso) was awesome – really keen to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and going out of his way to keep us entertained and happy.
