I loved every bit of it. I was glad we could come a day early, and I could take advantage of the walking tour around San Jose, which was so interesting. Then we were glad to get out of the city and into the green countryside (though I really liked the Grana de Oro). The food at the the Riverside restaurant was some of the best on the trip.

Most Memorable Moment:

Zip lining (scary), Night nature walk (inspiring). Activities in general were lots of fun and educational, not too difficult.

We started this tour the day after we completed the Costa Rica-Panama Canal Tour. Some tours, while repeated, were at different venues, so not overly repetitive. I strongly suggest you bring sweater, sweatshirt, long pants and a light pair of gloves for the days in the Rain Forest. It is chilly and damp. Even rains/mists when the sun is shining.

Most Memorable Moment:

The Toucan Rescue Ranch! An amazing non-profit which we have immediately added to our annual giving accounts. It is truly a rescue ranch. The goal is to rehab and teach each of the animals, birds, etc to become free and independent. There are exceptions - baby sloth - no right arm - adorable.
