Karla Samsin, United Kingdom

I had an absolutely fantastic time in Costa Rica with this agency! There was wildlife everywhere which was amazing. Definitely a holiday for anyone who likes to be active and out in nature. Every day was equally amazing as the last. The Best Of Costa Rica team were brilliant, nothing was too much hassle especially after our flight inbound to the country was delayed a day by the Turrialba volcano. Read more
