I am thrilled with this holiday. It gave an excellent and varied introduction to Costa Rica. Wonderful!
The aspects I most enjoyed were: variety of locations from tropical rainforest to 'alpine' conditions, quality of our leader, different types of accommodation, including log cabins - particularly close to the forests / Pacific / the wild, meeting Ticos, especially those who are endeavouring to improve their lot with ecotourism off the beaten track, swimming in plunge pools, hot springs, the Pacific ocean (and hotel pools), walking through a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes, observing birds, mammals, sea-life, Gallo pinto! small group, sunsets.
Walter (our leader) was enthusiastic to show us as much as possible. His knowledge of wildlife and love of his country are exemplary. He appreciated our different needs and interests and tried effectively to engage us all.
There was even more diverse habitats than I expected. The level of walking was never too difficult - I feared it may have been. This was a superb experience. I loved every moment, even when I was physically stretched.

The trip was well organised and we didn't have to worry about anything. Our guide Walter was really excellent, knowledgable and happy to share his knowledge with us, he never tired of trying to find the animals for us.
My original holiday had to be cancelled and I was rebooked on this one. I got really great help from KE staff (thanks a lot!) and the holiday was really a success!
A friend recommended KE Adventure Travel to me. I picked this trip as it was a nice combination of hiking, getting to know the country and wildlife. I really enjoyed the holiday and would highly recommend this trip to anyone!
