We chose this trip because we love adventure

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...

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...

A Trip that gets off-the-beaten-path

A Trip that gets off-the-beaten-path
I just got a review from a family who loved their participation on our Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure, because of all the great activities and exposure to the local Caribbean culture.The idea was to create a trip which engages travelers to participate and where they can feel more like guests than just travelers. That connection is created when travelers learn from local's daily lives and their traditions. We are not satisfied with just taking guests off the beaten path on this trip. We take guests deep inside a part of Costa Rica where traditional life prevails. A place where they can interact meaningfully with local people and indigenous cultures. Very few adventure travelers ever have this experience, because many native indigenous people of Costa Rica are isolated in reservations and remote areas. Having the chance to interact with local people is one of the things people enjoy the most, because it helps them...
