Add Costa Rica to your bucket list! - Dec 29 - Jan 15, 2022

Traveler: Kelsey K. - Local specialist: Alberto Molina

My husband and I had the privilege of spending three weeks in Costa Rica and Alberto and the Kim Kim team made this trip a complete dream come true! I was a bit nervous about all the excursions and accommodations and travel plans as we stayed at 6 different spots and rented a car in a country we don't speak the language on (and Murphy's law is something is bound to happen) but NO! Everything was organized to perfection and by the most friendly people ever! We did not have a single issue and nothing was even 5 minutes behind schedule - this vacation truly operated flawlessly! When I did have questions, Alberto responded in a matter of minutes (seconds even sometimes, I am not kidding!!!) Highly recommend letting Alberto plan your trip to Costa Rica as we had a once in a lifetime experience and stayed at some of the nicest resorts I have ever been at.

Our favorites.....
1. The Caribbean side! You must visit this part of the country - Puerto Viejo & Limon region were spectacular!
2. Monteverde El Establo Resort - truly a magical place and you MUST go horseback riding at Equus Farms : https://www.monteverdetourscr.com/trip/monteverde-equus-horseback-riding-tour/
3. Diria Tamarindo Resort - we will be back here for sure!
4. Tortugero Evergreen Lodge - the windows are screens, not glass and you are living in a jungle sound machine! SOOO many animals here!

Tips for travelers....
1. Drink bottle water only! We both got sick
2. Rent a car - the roads were really easy to drive and the car had GPS
3. Fly in and out of different airports so you can see more of the country... next time we are going to fly into Limon airport and then fly out of Liberia so we can spend more time on the beach as San Jose is not great and you should try to spend as little time there as possible to maximize the fun.
4. You can book much cheaper excursions with the hotels you are staying at. You would save a lot of money doing it this way and they have more options to choose from and you can decide day of what you want to do instead of being locked into a schedule.

Seriously, Alberto was amazing and so communicative from start to finish! GO TO COSTA RICA, you won't regret it!

Pura Vida!
