Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica reviews

Read holiday reviews by Mountain Kingdoms travellers.


Couldn't fault it!

This was a great trip, the country is beautiful and the trip took in a lot of the diversity between the areas visited. We were very pleased with the itinerary which had obviously been well thought out and the accommodation wherever we stayed was of a good standard. We were with a group of 10 lovely, friendly people but one of the highlights of the trip was the group leader, Rey. Rey really made our trip with his knowledge, attitude and sense of fun, he went above and beyond on many occasions.


No praise too high!

We had a wonderful holiday. We saw a lot of the country and a considerable amount of wildlife. The hotels were all comfortable and the food was good. There was quite a lot of travel in a small bus. This was inevitable if we wanted to see as much of the country as we did. The bus was comfortable and the driver was good. Our guide was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Costa Rica. He was happy to accommodate our wishes to get up early to go bird watching. No praise too high.


Wildlife paradise with a great guide

There are regular guides, and then, there's Rey, our highly qualified naturalist guide, who always spotted in a tree, long before any of our group, 'anything that looks unusual or shouldn't be there' (his words). Monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and particularly birds, he found them all for us, and, with his 'scope and tripod set up, we could view, and photograph or video via our phones, all the wonderful creatures that make Costa Rica a wildlife paradise. We enjoyed walks in the volcanic areas too.


Fantastic holiday to Costa Rica

This was a diverse and well paced adventure. Plenty of amazing flora and fauna. The travelling across the country did not feel onerous and was well worth it to allow us the chance to experience a range of scenery and different climatic conditions. Our guide, Tito, was excellent company and very knowledgeable, ably supported by our driver Leo. Accommodation was equally diverse, but always of a good standard. Fantastic!


A thoroughly enjoyable holiday

The holiday was an excellent way to see the wildlife and scenic highlights of Costa Rica. It is a beautiful destination and even though it is now attracting increasing numbers of tourists, it is still possible to visit some less travelled to areas. This was our first experience of small group travel having always travelled independently in the past but selected this group tour as it was our fist visit to Latin America. Overall this was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.


A wonderful trip to Costa Rica

This is a wonderful trip, with many opportunities to spot and photograph a variety of flora and fauna, and beautiful walks amongst lush vegetation. The guide was very interesting, organised and flexible, as well as being a great advocate for the Pura Vida Costa Rican outlook on life. Be prepared for wet and humid weather as this is what creates the environment for the wide variety of birds, animals, trees and flowers.


Gentle Walking in Costa Rica

A truly lovely holiday that certainly met our expectations. The activities are well managed, but some of the walking may not be considered gentle by some.


Wonderful walking & wildlife

For a Central American country, Costa Rica defies preconceptions: it's politically stable, peaceful, well developed and has very high standards of hotels and service. But of course it’s the fantastic wildlife that steals the show. We saw so many wonderful birds and animals and yet we seem to have barely scratched the surface. Still, it’s always good to have a reason to return.


Sloths and surprises!

Long on my travel wishlist, Costa Rica didn’t disappoint. From seeing a smiling sloth on my first day to walking through the weird and wonderful landscape of Rincon de la Vieja on my last, it was a trip of constant surprises and delights.
