Doug and Peggy just returned from a trip to Costa Rica in the middle of the dry season and had an incredible time, they especially loved their guide. This active couple traveled with their friends Allan and Terry visiting different areas of the country including the North, Central and South areas of the Osa Peninsula (one of my favorite places in Costa Rica) and shared some memorable pictures of the abundant wildlife they encountered along the way which was one of their main targets on this trip.     "Hi G rettel.  Fabulous trip!!     The communication with you was excellent.

Mom, we should go back to Costa Rica every year!
Young adventures Lucia and Oscar just finished their second trip to Costa Rica this year with their family. This time they came back to visit one of their favorite places: The Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park on the South Pacific of Costa Rica, and this time they took my suggestion to also visit Tortuguero National Park on the extreme opposite side of the country, the North Caribbean. Lucia and Oscar's Mom, Katherine, shares their experience with us: "Dear Grettel, First, thank you so much for the bug book and the towels and water bottles!! I really appreciate how you go all out for your families, the great care you put into creating a wonderful travel experience from start to finish. I absolutely could not recommend Wildland Adventures more highly- I am a walking advertisement to anyone who asks about our trip! It's interesting because some friends of ours traveled to...

Second-time alumni Sue and Carmi recently returned from an extended trip to Costa Rica during the month of May.  This is what they shared with us after their journey: " Hi Grettel!! Carmi and I want to thank you for the most WONDERFUL trip to your beautiful country. Everything was absolutely perfect and planned to perfection. The lodges were amazing and comfortable; Ely was a great driver and always on time; our adventures (zip lining, hanging bridges, canyoneering, hikes, ) were so fun, Gerardo was the BEST guide, and the extras (Vida Campesina, La Fortuna Hot Springs, Word Adventure) were great and special because we never would have done them without your suggestions. Throughout our 2 weeks we did many hikes into the rainforests and Monteverde cloud forest and saw the most beautiful birds and animals. In Lapa Rios, Guillermo took us to see the macaws, and I took the Medicine...
