I had an incredible time on this tour. It was an amazing way to have a really active vacation and see and do a huge variety of activities I have always wanted. From white water rafting, canyoneering, surfing, ziplining and mountain biking this was a non-stop trip. The tour leader Michelle was really fun and helpful (have no idea where she got the energy) and we got the chance to experience a lot of the local culture.

I'm so happy that I took my first trip to Costa Rica with G Adventures. It was a wonderful way to see three different parts of the country in a short time. I found the accommodations comfortable and clean. The food was fantastic! The choices of activities were all tempting and made it hard to decide just what to do. Our guide leader, Michelle was a great help and made the trip even more fun. She has a great personality and incredible energy. My trip was one of the best vacations I've ever taken.
