Our trip was fantastic! The trip started badly with one of the worst aircraft delays I have ever experienced (24 hour delay with 12 hours sitting on plane). We were worried about meeting our driver at 12am as the flight kept getting pushed, as well as missing our morning tours, and being too late for hotel check in.

Our trip was fantastic! The trip started badly with one of the worst aircraft delays I have ever experienced (24 hour delay with 12 hours sitting on plane). We were worried about meeting our driver at 12am as the flight kept getting pushed, as well as missing our morning tours, and being too late for hotel check in. Our local specialist, Brittany, however, made the experience easy and she ensured our driver was waiting for us (even with the delay), that our hotel knew we would be very late, and cancelled our morning tour on our request. The rest of the trip was amazing-we are passionate about wildlife and Brittany's suggested tours were perfect! We saw sloths, toucans, monkeys, crabs, snakes, scorpions, tarantulas, dolphins, deer, and so much more all in the wild. My son really enjoyed the night sloth tour, the hike through the Cloud Forest, and snorkeling off the catamaran. We had a great time and will be definitely going back!

Our guide was so outgoing and knowledgeable! She was great with my son and helped us spot so many creatures we wouldn't normally have seen. My family enjoyed learning about the animals, plants and insects and appreciated hearing about our guides childhood and life in Costa Rica

Thank you for your review, Stephanie!
I can't imagine how frustrating your flight situation must have been, so I'm happy I was able to provide a little relief and comfort in knowing that everything would be good to go once you arrived. I'm glad to hear your wildlife tours exceeded expectations, and how much your son enjoyed the sloth tour.
We hope you'll consider kimkim for future adventures, and I'd be more than happy to help you plan another thrilling trip to Costa Rica!
Best,
Brittany
