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:
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 2weeks 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 Plant hike through the forest. It was fascinating!
I also want to thank you for assigning us to Gerardo. He is very knowledgeable, personable, friendly, and highly competent as a guide and driver. Our last night at Xandari Resort was a special surprise. We enjoyed the accommodations and especially the spa experience with the wine and cheese. You thought of everything!!!!
This trip is one that we will remember for a very long time. The quality of our travel that we experienced in Costa Rica is why we travel with Wildland Adventures and we are confident that we can expect the same level of excellence with Wildand in the future. Again, thank you Grettel! Pura vida!

PS: Yes, we found a geocache on the beach at Tortuguerro. It was hidden in a palm tree. Here's the link."
If you enjoy Geocaching tell us how would like to implement it on a trip, would you like to set up a Geocache during the trip or would you prefer trying to find some 'treasures' at the places you visit? I'm totally new to this so I would love to hear from those who have experience on the subject. Leave a comment and let me know!
Your friendly Tica, Grettel (Usha) Calderon
