8 DAYS, 7 NIGHTS in puerto viejo, costa rica

The frequent check-ins leading up to the trip, itinerary updates and reminders of what we needed for the trip were just some examples of the attention to detail this company delivered. I was going into this experience completely blindfolded, with NO research on the company or on Costa Rica, and I have to say, it COMPLETELY blew my expectations out of the water. To date, this trip is one of the best vacation I have ever been on.

The trip is about 3 hours (with stops) so focus on getting to know your fellow travelers and prepare to be blown away when you arrive on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica!
