Overview

Costa Rica is well named the ‘jewel of Central America', with its tropical rainforest, active volcanoes, deserted beaches, colourful wildlife, perfect climate and friendly people; experience it all on this exciting wildlife and walking adventure holiday. We begin our amazing adventure in Costa Rica with some scenic walking beneath Volcan Arenal and on Rincon de la Vieja. We have three days to explore the trails and enjoy the mud pools, hot springs, waterfalls and abundent wildlife. Heading south, we stop off at the Pacific beach town of Dominical, before embarking on a 3-day trip to the Osa Peninsula, the gateway to the Corcovado National Park. Journeying by boat, we will be on the lookout for dolphins, whales and turtles; stopping off for walks and snorkelling opportunities. Our wildlife bonanza holiday is rounded off as we go in search of quetzals and other exotic bird species at San Gerardo de Dota and in the El Copal Reserve. This walking and wildlife holiday is designed to take us to the lesser-known places away from the crowds and main stream tourists, yet allows us to experience the best of this remarkable country.

This adventure holiday is designed to provide an insight into the many different elements that define Costa Rica. It is not intended to be a long or continuous walking holiday. We have a couple of days of 6 hour walks, which will be through the forest, and we may experience slippery mud underfoot as rain showers are not unusual in Costa Rica. The main focus during these walks will be looking for wildlife and observing the different climatic zones and types of rainforest. We spend some time on boats admiring the forest, beaches and islands - so you should not have a fear of water! The majority of the holiday is leisurely, with a number of short and longer walks and other activities. We have one night where we have to carry our own belongings to the rustic forest lodge, our main baggage will go with the vehicle.

Why KE?

Our walks and wildlife holiday in Costa Rica is packed with fantastic wildlife spotting opportunities and walks through this stunning country. We use a range of hotels and lodges best suited to give us access to steamy jungles, cool cloud forests and sublime, remote beaches. Guides are selected for their expert wildlife knowledge and will ensure you don't miss a thing!

After breakfast at the hotel, we depart for the La Fortuna, in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano. On the way, we stop off for a visit to the wonderful Finca Sura, a family-run pineapple farm. We will have a tour and learn all about their approach to sustainable production and, whilst walking the farm, we will see much wildlife. They also grow manioc, turmeric, ginger, sugar cane, vanilla, pepper and cinnamon and we will be treated to a delicious lunch with freshest home-grown ingredients. After lunch, we continue to our hotel in La Fortuna

Arenal is Costa Rica's best known volcano, it is a large symmetrical mountain built on layers of ash, rock and lava, almost 2000m high. From 1968 to July 2010 it was an active volcano throwing lava and smoke high into the air. Now we can enjoy the walking trails through the lava strewn slopes in relative peace! Our morning hike takes us on one of these trails through the forest, taking our time to enjoy the beautiful forest scenery. Arenal is very rich in animal life and it is possible that we may see monkeys, sometimes peccaries, and the beautiful toucan and numerous other birds. In the afternoon there is an optional visit to the thermal hot springs. Dinner and overnight in Arenal. Approx. 1 hour transfer.

Leaving Arenal after breakfast we transfer northwards alongside Arenal Lake in the direction of Rincon de la Vieja. We stop at the Las Pumas Rescue Shelter to see several big cats, saved here but close to extinction in the wild, including the jaguar, puma and ocelet. Continuing our journey we pass the town of Liberia before turning off to the dry forest and savannah landscapes of Rincon de la Vieja. Our lodge is close to the park entrance and situated in beautiful grounds. Overnight Rincon de la Vieja. Approx 3-4 hours transfer, there may be time for a short walk into the surrounding forest with your guide.

After breakfast, we start our next hike. In the National Park, we find tropical dry forest with enchanting waterfalls, steaming vents, hot springs and bubbling mud pools. There are many different walks to choose from and this will be dependent on the weather. We may walk the three hour circular Las Pailas Trail (The Caldrons Trail), which offers the best views of the active Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. The forests around us contain a host of wildlife and if we are lucky we may see armadillo, coatis, tapir, sloth and kinkajous. After lunch we may take another three hour walk toward the beautiful La Cangreja Waterfall. Overnight Rincon de la Vieja.

This morning we transfer to the Central Pacific region. At the Tarcoles River we stop and observe the enormous crocodiles basking under the bridge, an incredible site. Continuing south we pass Quepos on the coast and a little further (at a town called Londres) we stop and continue on foot along an straight-forward track. We take our overnight belongings (our main luggage remaining with the vehicle) with us as we walk through the farmland to the small community of Quebrada Arroyo. The community originally farmed vanilla but due to devastation from pests, weather and poor soil they have now made the reserve into a conservation area and are working on natural regeneration and environmental monitoring to fight illegal hunting and tree felling. The project has progressed very well over the last decade and the forest is now beautiful. We stay in rustic dormitory style rooms. The food is all freshly prepared local dishes which we enjoy in the open sided dining area. Being here gives us a true insight to how sustainable tourism can work with the local community. The accommodation is surrounded by extraordinary forest and waterfalls. Approx 5.5 hours driving.

Breakfast at the open sided dining area is a delight as we can watch the forest with birds, butterflies and iguanas whilst we sip our coffee. This morning we have an interpretive walk through the forest with the local guide. We stop at the lookout points with their fantastic views of the forest, farmland and the Pacific Ocean over to Manuel Antonio. We have time to swim in the natural waterfall pools before returning to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon we pack our belongings and walk out to El Silencio or Londres, along a dirt track (for less than 1hr) where we meet our awaiting vehicle. From here we transfer to Dominical on the Pacific coast with its tropical sandy beaches. Overnight Dominical. Approx 1-2 hour transfer.

Leaving Dominical after breakfast we transfer to Sierpe. Here the next section of our adventure begins. We board the boat, with the personal belongings that we need for the 3 days whilst in Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula. We travel down the Rio Sierpe through wildlife rich mangrove forests before coming out into Drake Bay. Here we experience the expanse of the Pacific as we follow the coastline with the tropical forest falling into the beaches and the ocean. It is possible that we will see much wildlife along the shore before we reach our accommodation for the next few days. Our simple lodge accommodation is around 100m from the beach. The only way to get here is either by boat (as we have arrived), walk or by light aircraft to Drake Bay and then in a boat to the camp. Note that as this is a relatively undeveloped area, the boat landing will be a wet landing, meaning you should expect to get wet feet! Here we are truly away from the average tourist and it is a magical experience. The accommodation is simple and remote, and with this comes a feeling of being totally submerged in the wildlife and this pristine environment. We settle into our cabins, which is our home for the next three nights, and have the opportunity to swim and relax as we enjoy the peace of this remote and idyllic spot of paradise. Approx 2 hours transfer, 45 minute boat ride.

On our boat trip today we may see schools of dolphin, and possibly barracuda or manta rays. We have plenty time to stop off and snorkel from the boat before continuing to the beautiful San Josecito beach on the mainland where we have lunch. Here we have further opportunities to snorkel and observe the fantastic underwater life, including sea turtles, a vast array of colourful tropical fish, sea urchins, lobsters and giant conchs. We can also take a short walk on along the coastal path, where we have plenty of opportunity to observe the bird and animal life. We return to our lodge in the late afternoon for a refreshing drink and dinner.

This morning we depart by boat along the untamed 12 mile Corcovado beach on the Osa Peninsula. Inhabited by jaguars and undisturbed by humans, it is considered one of the most intense biological places on earth and we will really feel this today. We disembark on the coast near the Sirena Ranger Station and walk to this research station in the midst of the rainforest. We walk along some of the many trails here with the possible sightings of anteaters, peccary, sea turtles and many birds. In the afternoon, we return to the boat and our lodge. Approx 3 hours boat ride.

We rise early to visit several viewpoints near fruit trees where the Resplendent Quetzals are often spotted. These birds are bright green and red with tufty plumage on their heads, and the breeding males have very long tails. After breakfast back at the hotel we return to the vehicle and transfer to the Orosi Valley. From Purisil we hike alongside the Tapanti National Park and arrive at the remote and beautiful El Copal Reserve. This reserve was set up by an association of farmers who owned an unproductive sugarcane and cattle farming land. In the 1990's they decided to change their ways and conserve the area, now they have a bio diverse reserve with many birds and protect the natural history of their land. The area is also an important corridor between the Tapanti National Park and the Cerro del Muerte Valley. The friendly accommodation is a simple rustic eco-lodge with dormitory rooms, run by the association and serve delicious local, home cooked meals. Overnight El Copal. Approx. 2 hours transfer.

The group will meet at the hotel in San Jose.

A single group transfer from / to San jose airport is provided.

Hotel and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals except for 2 dinners when you are in San Jose are included in the holiday price. You should budget US$10 - $15 per meal for these non-inculded meals.

Many places on this holiday have drinkable water from the tap to fill your personal water bottles. Please check with the leader at the various locations. Please take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) for days when drinking water out of the tap is not available. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Costa Rican food is generally flavourful but fairly mild (not too spicy, unless of course you choose to add the local chilli sauce). Breakfasts include delicious local fruits such as pineapple, watermelon and papaya, as well as bread, eggs and ‘gallo pinto’ which is the local dish of black beans and rice. Lunch can vary from sandwiches to fish/meat dishes or local tamale (a dish wrapped in banana leaves). Dinners are usually based around beans and rice, and will be accompanied by vegetables or fried plantains, and meat or fish. There are western style dishes available too. Dessert is usually a selection of fruits or a small sweet dish such as ‘Tres leches’ (a dessert made of milk prepared three ways). On the whole the tap water is safe to drink, there are some exceptions to this so please check with your guide on arrival. Fresh fruit drinks are often served with your meals.

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

We will spend two nights in San Jose, our first in a hotel near the airport and our last in a centrally located hotel.

In Arenal and Rincon de la Vieja, we will stay in comfortable eco-lodges with great access to Costa Rica's national parks.

At Los Campesinos and at El Copal we will stay in traditional and rustic cabins with basic facilities, which offer an authentic community experience. The cabins at El Copal have dormitory style rooms with shared bathroom facilities.

In Corcovado, we stay for 3 nights in a simple lodge/cabins with en suite toilet and showers. The cabins are just 100m from the beach.
Some of the lodges and hotels have swimming pools.

With the exception of our night in El Copal, all accommodation is twin share. If you are travelling by yourself, you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Single rooms (not available at Los Campesinos and El Copal) are available for a supplementary cost. If you are planning to extend your holiday, additional nights at the group hotel are available on request.

Please note that some of our accommodation is 'off-grid', powered by discreet generators for a few hours each evening or by solar energy. When the power goes off you will experience the magic of total darkness that can only be found in such a remote area. The ambience and abundance of wildlife surrounding offered by the remote location far outweighs the modest facilities.

The group will be accompanied by a professional and qualified tour leader.

This holiday involves going to moderately high altitude.  During the course of your trip you will reach altitudes in excess of 2500 metres.  Most people will have no difficulty with this level of altitude but before coming on the holiday, we recommend you read the advice on trekking at high altitude.  You can also talk to one of our trekking experts if you have any concerns about altitude.

We estimate that US$250-300 should be sufficient to cover your spending requirements including the 2 evening meals which are not included, tips for drivers and trek staff, airport tax (on departure from San Jose, it is possible you will be required to pay US$32 airport tax, occasionally this is included in your airline ticket) and other incidental expenses such as snacks and alcoholic drinks. US dollars can be used directly to purchase most goods and services in Costa Rica. The optional visit to the hot springs at Arenal is approx US$30. It is not necessary to purchase local currency (Colones) outside the country. Credit and bank cards can be used to withdraw cash at ATMs in San Jose or at the airport. Credit cards can also be used at most restaurants in San Jose, and are particularly useful for more expensive souvenirs. 

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ to you leader and local team. Tipping is entirely voluntary and should be dependent on good service. We advise you to tip as a group. For full groups we advise around $40-50 per person total. 

Our holidays are normally designed with minimal 'down time' at the start of the trip, but having a day or two at the beginning will have the additional benefit of allowing you time to get over the stress of a long journey or travelling across time zones, leaving you refreshed and ready for your holiday. We can easily arrange for you to have additional nights and airport transfers.

There is no restriction on the weight of your luggage other than that imposed by your airline. A soft bag with wheels or a trek bag is ideal for this holiday. Lightweight clothing is the order of the day for the majority of this trip and you will have a more comfortable travel experience if you pack as light as possible.


For the overnight at Los Campesinos (day 7) you will need to carry your personal belongings as there will be no access to your main baggage on this night. When in Corcovado National Park (days 9-12) you should leave the majority of your baggage in Sierpe and take only what you require for the 3 nights. You can use your day pack for this, or bring a separate smaller bag. Please note that you may be required to carry your baggage from the beach to the accommodation on arrival. We suggest you pack your items in dry bags. Towels and bedding are provided. For your night in El Copal you will also be required to carry your overnight items, however this is only for the final 500m of the walk as the minibus cannot make it up the final hill. Please do not worry about carrying your baggage as there are usually some people around to help if needed.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THOSE TRANSITING THROUGH THE USA

You will require an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation), and you must get this before boarding any US-bound aircraft or ship, or entering on a land border. The fee is USD$21 and you should apply for it at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/. With the ESTA complete, the majority of British Citizen passport holders can enter the US under the Visa Waiver Programme, VWP. You will be required to have a passport with an integrated chip. Note that if you have travelled to Cuba, Iran, Syria or North Korea since March 2011* you will have to apply for a visa rather than the Visa Waiver Programme (* a full and up to date list of countries can be found on the US government website here.)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THOSE TRANSITING THROUGH CANADA

All citizens (except for USA citizens) will require an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorisation), and you must get this before boarding any Canada-bound aircraft or ship, or entering on a land border. The fee is CAD$7 and you should apply for it at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta-start.asp

 

Visa Costa Rica

UK and USA passport holders do not require a visa for short stays.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

VACCINATIONS

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you specific require any vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella), along with hepatitis A and typhoid. A certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required if travelling from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission and for travellers having transitted for more than 12 hrs through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist check up. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

Zika virus has been confirmed as active in this country. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites. The mosquitoes that transmit ZIKV are unlikely to be found above 2,000m altitude. For more information, visit the website of the National Travel Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) at https://travelhealthpro.org.uk

 

It makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on an adventure holiday by getting some additional exercise. The fitter you are, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. Regular hiking in hill country is the best preparation but running, cycling and swimming are also good.

The months that we have chosen to run this trip usually offer stable weather conditions in Costa Rica. The days are warm and generally sunny with average temperatures between 20 - 30°C. At the high points of the trip, on the crater rim of Poas and Rincon de al Vieja the temperatures will be cooler. Costa Rica is a tropical country and it can rain anywhere at anytime, however there are 2 main seasons. The wet season is generally May to early December, and the dry season during the rest of the year. When it rains it can get humid and muddy very quickly.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

Please note that it is now prohibited to enter any national park in Costa Rica with any form of single use plastic, including bottles, plastic bags etc.

It is an essential condition of joining a holiday with KE Adventure Travel that you have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the cost of medical treatment and to protect the value of your holiday in the event of cancellation.  When taking out insurance please ensure the policy you choose covers you for the activities and altitude included in your itinerary.

For appropriate insurance cover we recommend Campbell Irvine Direct.  Please go to our Travel Insurance page for further information and to get a quote.

Please note that a paper copy of your travel insurance is required if you are travelling to Huaraz and the Huayhuash region.

Absolutely fantastic trip to Costa Rica ★★★★★

We have just returned from an absolutely fantastic trip to Costa Rica (Walks and Wildlife). The organisation was faultless from the moment we arrived. Check in at lodges was always seamless, local guides arrived promptly, our drivers and our guide were incredibly efficient. The travelling between the locations was quite demanding but well worth it as we saw beautiful scenery and an incredible variety of birds and mammals - squirrel monkeys, howler monkeys, white faced capuchin monkeys, tapirs, c oaties, sloths, a couple of hundred birds, including a superb quetzal and lots of hummingbirds. Accommodation was as it says in the trip notes, varying from lovely eco lodges to a basic refugio. It was never necessary to share dorms with others and we didn’t need mosquito nets. What absolutely made the trip was our incredible guide, Marcos Pitti. We were so lucky that he was available for this tour. He had a fantastic sense of humour and was just so knowledgeable and passionate about the flora and fauna, the environment, the geography and history of Costa Rica, its place in Central America and on the American continent, the politics, social issues, religion, language, the music. On long journeys he always made sure we didn’t get bored by talking to us about anything appropriate and introducing us to Costa Rican music. He is actually quite a dark horse and it turned out that he is a musician too. On the beach at the Pacific he kept us entertained all evening with his singing and guitar playing. It was really fun! He is a great photographer and quickly focussed on wildlife with his scope and phone, allowing us to see brilliant images. His English was impeccable. He knew all the specialist vocabulary and could also give us the Latin names. Unbelievably, he usually guides in French too! He was attentive and diplomatic and in his briefings he always made us aware of what to expect, in terms of nature of hikes, length of journeys, potential hazards. It’s hard to know how there could possibly be a better guide than Marcos and I hope KE and the local agents realise how good he is! Our drivers, Manuel and then Carlos, were delightful too. They were always with us at meal times and, where possible, accompanied us on short walks and helped us to spot the wildlife. The trip exceeded our expectations in all aspects. We stayed in some amazing locations and met lovely people. It was our first KE adventure, but it will certainly not be the last!

Jam packed walks and wildlife tour...well worth the trip. ★★★★★

A very well organised and run tour of the real delights of Costa Rica taking in the spectacular volcanic, tropical features and wild life of the land from east to west, mountain highs to Pacific seashores and many more. Priced at a reasonable level it was inclusive and jam packed with extras. Lead by an excellent guide and tour organiser, ably supported by the owner/driver of the coach its busy and relaxed in varying doses. Do always consider the detail in the itinerary and fully pay attention t o the advised kit lists so you can fully cope with the breakdown of your kit when you have to go off grid to the real eco-lodges in the wild. These are rough and ready but absolutely charming.

Wonderful Walks and Wildlife ★★★★★

We returned in February from two weeks on the above holiday. What a fantastic trip! If you want to see some of the highlights of Costa Rica this is the one to do. Jo, our brilliant guide, ensured we got the very best of this trip. We walked through wonderful forests, we swam in waterfalls, we were shown incredible wildlife and birds, and delicious picnics and were absorbed by all the information Jo shared with us. Jo also had a great affinity with the communities we visited and was very consider ate and respectful to our hosts. He was always involved in providing the best experience of us. It was a busy and challenging schedule at times but this was how we managed to see and do so much. We laughed a lot and when the going got tough Jo intervened to make things easy. A mention must also go to our driver Carlos who was the best and calmest driver and lives by Pura Vida! Thanks KE

Fantastic Trip to Costa Rica - Highly Recommended! ★★★★★

This is a fantastic trip that combines seeing a lot of what is an amazing country with some good walking and stunning wildlife. Our guide Joe was outstanding and was highly knowledgeable, passionate, professional and good fun. The diversity of places we visited was great, from mountains and volcanos, to palm fringed beaches and coffee plantations. There were some long journeys involved, but all broken up and made interesting. Not much time to chill and every day brought new experiences. Some of the accommodation was simple as described eg one has no hot water where we stayed for 3 nights. Overall, highly recommended for a great adventure. We also did the extension to Tortuguero - another great location with lots of wildlife to see from the waterways, but I wouldn't recommend this part of the trip.

Super memorial vacation! ★★★★★

This is my first time with KE Travel. I enjoyed all about this trip: well organizing, walking in to nature of tropical forest, seeing exotic wildlife, friendly UK travelers. I'm looking forward to traveling more with KE in the future. Tip: If you do walking or hiking, don't forget bug spray. It's better to wear long pants, long T-shirt. There are a lot of ticks on the trail.

Fantastic introduction to Costa Rica and it's wildlife
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This is an incredibly varied holiday visiting several regions of Costa Rica. This inevitably involves many hours on the bus but the journeys were broken up with meals, coffee stops and brief stops at places of interest (for example the cafe with a bird table and the crocodile stop). We saw over a hundred species (majority being birds) during the 2 weeks including sloths, monkeys, anteater, tapir, coati, toucans, macaws, the resplendent quetzal, turtles). Although none of the walks are long (the longest was 20km and that was longer that scheduled - our guide recognised we were a fit group and offered to extend this particular walk to which all agreed), some of the terrain is not easy e.g. steep forest paths with many roots to step over and some river crossings. Accommodation varied from 3 star hotels to basic though comfortable lodges. Our guide was excellent - enthusiastic, organised, patient and keen to ensure that we really got the best from our holiday.

An amazing experience

We couldn't recommend this trip enough - stunning walking, abundant wildlife and our guide (Joe) was nothing short of brilliant!

By Jonathan from Whitley Bay | 13 February 2023

Not the trip we expected.
★ ★ ★
We did a lot of research before booking this Costa Rica holiday. We were excited by this trip because as well as the opportunity to see wildlife it included an appreciable amount of hiking, much of which was away from the main tourist areas. We read the trip notes carefully taking full account of the descriptions and GPS data for each day. The holiday we had was very different from what we expected based on this research. The opportunities to see birds and wildlife were great and our guide was e xcellent in this respect. However the walks were disappointing, most were quite a bit shorter than the trip notes suggested and several were either along well trodden tourist routes or were along dirt roads. Our guide had not done this trip before and did not seem to have been given appropriate guidance in the routes. The accommodation was mostly good- much as would be expected for this type of trip, although the unlit uphill pathway to our rooms on the oso peninsula was a health and safety risk. Food was largely good with the ubiquitous rice and beans supplemented by both Ecuadorean and international dishes. A second area of concern for us was the amount of time transferring between places. This was considerably longer than the notes suggested, not so much because of the time on the road but more a result of overlong lunch and coffee breaks and the almost daily supermarket visit to buy snacks which were not needed as the food was plentiful. As a consequence we often arrived late at our destination and had no time to enjoy it. When we expressed our concerns to KE their response was to say that the GPS information was just an example and that we should not expect it to be the same for our trip. Whereas we accept that some variation is inevitable because of local conditions, we felt that our trip was massively different from that described and this could not be because of the weather which was actually very good. KE have now removed the GPS information from their site. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and there were many positive aspects to this trip, however on balance it was disappointing and we would not have chosen it without the walk information which has been removed.

KE Adventure reply

Thank you for your review, Lynn. We were sorry to learn that this holiday did not match your expectations and, as you are aware, we have addressed your disappointments with various aspects of the trip directly in our private correspondence with you. This adventure holiday is designed to provide an insight into the many different elements that define Costa Rica. It is not intended to be a long or continuous walking holiday and the walks on this trip will vary according to the best options for wildlife viewing, but will always be appropriate to a grade 3 walking holiday.


Tropical adventure walking

Action packed journey with local guide, swimming most days, so many animals, birds, reptiles seen, wonderful country, so eco conscious. Some serious walking in the heat and humidity, no time for reading a book!

Superbly guided wildlife walking holiday
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Our guide Joe ensured that we had a memorable holiday and we experienced the wildlife and natural beauty of Costa Rica. The trip was superbly organised and we sampled delicious food and numerous treats along the way. Joe was enthusiastic , informative and fun to be with. He had boundless energy and made sure the whole group was included in everything.

You will experience some inevitable discomfort ... accommodation is not 5* hotels, but every effort is made and the experience and wildlife was amazing!!

Excellent voyage of discovery
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
An inspiring tour leader (Joe) led our varied group on a wonderful voyage of discovery. His inclusive approach ensured all members of the group were active in the way they wanted to be, some with greater interest, for example, in the bird life of Costa Rica were richly involved. The locations were nicely varied in type and led to pleasing surprises throughout. Highlights included snorkeling and an encounter with a turtle making its way back to the sea. A great trip - very well planned and organi sed. Thank you, KE.

An absolutely fabulous trip
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Costa Rica is a beautiful country with an amazing array of wildlife. The trip took us on a superb adventure with an itinerary that showcased the diversity of the National Parks. Kimberley, our tour guide was absolutely fantastic. Her love for wildlife was shared with us, identifying all the birds, mamals and insects we encountered or just heard. We were lucky to see Toucans, the Quetzal, Dolphins, Sea Turtles, four different kinds of Monkey, Sloths, Scarlett Macaws, Hummingbirds just to name a f ew! Kim has an extensive knowledge of Costa Rica and her enthusiasm shone throughout the whole two weeks. Kim certainly made the trip an adventure to remember.

Stunning location, perfect hosts

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this stunningly beautiful country. Our guide was excellent, the accommodation was good and the people so friendly. The trip notes are wrong - KE need to listen to their man on the ground! And don’t worry about taking a mosquito net or towels - not necessary. But do take an umberella!

By Cathryn from BRENTWOOD | 12 December 2017

Excellent all round. Good hotels and food.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

There are two seasons in Costa Rica. The wet and the not so wet. The not so wet starts in December so bring your wellies. Very good trip. Only one let down which was the final hotel in San Jose which was not up to scratch. Bring a camera with a good zoom or telephoto as much of the birdlife in the wild was at a distance. Otherwise a really good trip. Our tour guide Joe went the extra mile and made all the difference. Also our driver Sherman who was with us througout

By David from Southampton | 08 December 2017

A brilliant and diverse holiday
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This trip covers a large amount of Costa Rica from volcanoes and rain forests to the ocean so offers loads of opportunity to experience the stunning bio diversity that Costa Rica offers. Joe was a great guide - very informative and very proud of his country. We had the opportunity to sample lots of local delights thanks to him. The walking is fine for regular walkers although the odd section raised the heart rate. Tips - take really good mosquito repellent, a good camera, a very light waterproof /poncho - we only had a couple of days of rain but it was pretty heavy - a headtorch and pack light. You're on the move a lot because there is so much to see.

Pura Vida
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
What an excellent holiday which delivered walks and wildlife galore. Highlights included swimming and snorkeling in the warm Pacific whilst staying at 'Poor Man's Paradise', and in natural waterfall pools along the way. Also seeing sloths, agouti, humming birds and the resplendent quetzel. Our group leader, Joe, was excellent -inspiring, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and keen to show us his country. I must also mention our driver, Carlos, who kept smiling no matter how wet and smelly we made his minibus! Thank you and Pura Vida both.

A new adventure
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This was an excellent trip with good company and a first class leader in Joe Bernini. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and did all he could to make the holiday a success apart from lingering over lunch and accordingly starting a walk at 5pm which was largely undertaken in darkness and pouring rain. I gave him my views and have forgiven him! We saw the quetzal (incredibly beautiful and patient with its birders) but no jaguars or tapirs.

By William from BARNET | 09 December 2015

Everything we expected and more
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We went Costa Rica expecting to see rainforest and wildlife. We were not disappointed. Joe Bernini is an excellent guide, his knowledge, enthusiasm and leadership is a model for others. We would strongly recommend this trip. Tim & Val Greenwood
