We chose this trip because we love adventure

Guest review from Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure"Thanks for a great trip. We received excellent prep information. Having done many trips without a tour group, much of the information was a gentle reminder. The checklists were time saving and thoughtful.Both lodges offered different experiences and they were both wonderful. Selva Bananito was amazing and different. The Shawanda Lodge was lovely with lots of wildlife on the grounds. I loved the snorkeling and experience in Cahuita. The waterfall hike and rappel was awesome. Other highlights were the boat ride and day at the Bribri Indigenous community, the salsa lesson and cooking lessons and the Sloth Sanctuary.Alex Arias was professional, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He watched out for our comfort and safety and made sure that we had the best experience possible. He was able to teach us about the history of the country and the places we were visiting and had...

Simply the best guide you could ever ask for on a trip

Simply the best guide you could ever ask for on a trip
Fantastic note from a family who traveled with Wildland on our Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure."Alex is simply the best guide you could ever ask for on a trip. He is very professional. He clearly loves what he does and loves his country. He is very knowledgeable and excited to share it. He is sensitive to everyone’s needs and watching out and anticipating needs. He went out of his way to buy snacks, find us a laundry mat etc. As a parent traveling with three teenagers, I felt so at ease because he was looking out for them and for so many details. He made time to connect with each of my kids, make them laugh, get them excited about what they were doing, and have fun. We cannot say enough about him! My kids all said that they missed him when we came back home!”Rita Egrari and childrenUndiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica...
