Thousands of customers have had the opportunity to travel with us on very memorable and highly personalized trips. We would like to share some of their comments with you:
Karen Higgins
I've been meaning to email you to thank you for making me look so good on our trip.   Everyone had a fantastic time, and complimented me nonstop,  but you are the one who deserves the compliments.   

We really got to see true Costa Rica.  Even though our time was short, we were in 6 of the 7 provinces.  Our drivers and guides were great and made our rides to our various destinations lots of fun by pointing out particular areas and telling us all about Costa Rica. They stopped at interesting spots to break up the drive--we even crashed a wedding with 2 brides!

On the rafting trip, Felix and Leo couldn't have been better.   We had loads of fun, but felt safe at all times.

Our driver, Pablo,  was wonderful--a great driver and very patient dealing with us!

Warner, the volcano/hot springs guide was very thoughtful and informative.   He was the guide who took us to the church with the weddings, and also managed to catch a cute little frog that was living in a pineapple plant so he could show him to us.

When we were at Punta Leona,  Alberto, the Costa Rica Connection representative at the resort, was a gem. He made sure we were well taken care of, and even dropped into our pool fully dressed with his watch and phone.  As Karen said, everyone that we encountered made sure to keep our trip pleasurable.

Karen Pinkham

It was an awesome adventure! Although any trip with these good friends always is.
Everyone we encountered was wonderful - helpful, informative, and accommodating. Our drivers and guides were the best. Each one did their best to make it a great experience.
Thank you for being patient with us over the past year in the planning process!
Thanks again for everything. (Costa Rica Vacation with Friends)

Hi the trip was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the rafting trip.  Wonderful guides, great food and scenery.  I did think the volcano trip was a non event.  I have visited volcanos in Hawaii and I guess that was what I expected.  I really think more time at the hot springs would have been more fun.   Overall the trip was great.  I loved the accommodations- very Costa Rican.  The people we met were the best.  Highly recommend it!   Thanks for all your work.   (Costa Rica Vacation with Friends)

Pyllis Lemmons
I wanted to let you know that we had a great trip to Costa Rica.  Every
detail worked out as it was supposed to. We enjoyed the hotels, expecially
The Falls. The activities were all fun. The Tabacon Hot Springs was a
highlight! The Zip Line was thrilling.

We had great weather except our 1st day when we were at the volcano, falls,
and garden. We enjoyed it anyway. (Costa Rica Vacation)

Lindsey Lowe

This was the best trip I ever was on. Everything went so smoothly! The hotels were amazing! The food was great and our activities rocked! I would recommend this service to anyone planning a trip to Costa Rica! (Costa Rica Priceless Honeymoon)

Margaret Beckman

Our trip to Costa Rica was a great experience. We loved being able to relax and enjoy Costa Rica because of all of the organization you provided to us. It was so easy to just turn in vouchers for everything and we appreciated the e-mails you sent to us along the way. We would definitely recommend The Costa Rican Connection to others. Thank you so much for such a great trip.(Costa Rica Vacation)

Michael Taylor
Director of Guest Services

I just wanted to thank you for putting together the trip of a lifetime. Costa Rica is the most beautiful place we have been and everyone we met was very friendly. Everything you planned for us from the resorts to the transportation and the excursions all went very smooth. We had one problem on our last day because our taxi service was late picking us up at the airport to bring us to Hotel Grano De Oro but it was resolved very promptly. We waited for a little bit and then took a different cab to the hotel. The supervisor from the taxi service named Francisco made up for it because he called our room, apologized and sent someone over right away to reimburse
us. We thought this was a very nice gesture from his company because we realize not everything is always going to be perfect and we were not going to let that affect our amazing vacation. If anyone is looking for another Travel Agency to book their trip I would advise them to look no further because I know you provide outstanding service and have the best deals.  My wife and I will be back to celebrate many anniversaries. (Costa Rica Honeymoon)

Lori Kinczel

We loved The Costa Rican Connection. We felt like our trip was very clearly planned out, that our hotels were beautiful, our adventures were exciting and our needs were met. Thanks. (Costa Rica Family Vacation)

Stacey Fawcett

Going to Costa Rica was more than a trip, it was an adventure! Our son (8 years old) said this was the best vacation. We couldn't agree more. Seeing the Arenal Volcano erupt while staying at the observatory was amazing. Thanks for an incredible adventure! (Costa Rica Family Vacation)

Sean Kinsey

Thanks for the wonderful trip You did a great job. We will use you for future Costa Rica trips and we will refer you to anyone that we speak about Costa Rica. Thanks again. You made our Honeymoon great. (Costa Rica Honeymoon)

Cindy Oberman

Oh my God!  That trip was amazing!  Everything flowed so smoothly, the accommodations were fantastic, the people were warm and helpful, the scenery was beyond words, the activities breath taking, the food was delicious, and the weather, well, it was exciting (thunder and lightening) and humid!  We loved it all!  I just wish we had more time there.  I will recommend your services to my friends.  I do want to comment on the punctuality of the drivers, they were always on time and did a great job.  They did go a little fast at times but they just wanted to get us to our destination quickly.  And the hotels were way above my expectations!  I especially enjoyed Arenal.  The lodge was perfect and I fell in love with that volcano and entire area.  The kids loved the beach of course.  And none of us will forget that zip line experience!  Thank you again for all you did for us.  I hope to send some business your way. (Costa Rica Vacation Package)

Alice Barron

We just wanted to thank you for arranging such a fabulous trip for us.  Your native country is truly beautiful in both its natural landscape and its people.  We enjoyed all planned activities and all the people including guides, shuttle drivers, hotel workers, and even strong guys who humped our bags across waters in Drake Bay.

Gerri Lyman

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that we had an absolutely wonderful trip and to thank you for all
your help and suggestions in putting it together. It was a truely memorable trip--one that we will all think about with fond memories for a long time.I think Paul was very impressed by everything (as we all were).  The accomodations were very comfortable and met all of our needs--they were all wonderful in their own way (I think my favorite was the Hotel Grano De Oro) just because I love old fashioned elegance.)  Arenal was incredible and our chalet had such a fantastic view!  Ocotal was a wonderful spot to spend the final days of our trip--we were very comfortable and felt so pampered with our very own jacuzzi pool right out our door as well as the beautiful ocean view.  The food was delicious, our transportation was always very prompt and got us to our next destination safely.  The activities were so much fun (even though Paul, Ashleigh and I ended up leaving our raft on the white water trip and not because we wanted to!!)  Our guide was great and the little kayak guys were right there to keep an eye on us until we were hauled back into the raft!!  It was one of the most exciting things we have ever done.  The Zip-Line was pretty incredible too--I would have never pictured myselt doing that!!  Everyone made you feel very safe and you were assured they would be right there if you needed them!  The fishing trip was exciting as well.  Paul managed to bring in a beautiful sailfish and Ashleigh got a marlin--we had a few other bites but they got away with the bait.  Even though Ben, Lindsey and I didn't catch anything it was so much fun watching Paul and Ashleigh! I want to thank you again so much for all your help.  I can't remember ever going on such a memorable trip!  What a beautiful country and the people were very gracious, helpful, and so tolerant of our poor Spanish (I actually learned a fair amount while we were there and Ashleigh was doing well since she had a two week start on us)! The only thing wrong with the trip is that it wasn't long enough!!  We will definately have to go back!  Thanks again so much!  If you are ever in Montana please look us up! Best Regards,    Gerri Lyman P.S.  Paul said several times on the trip how perfect everything was and he never comments about anything!!

"My girlfriend and I just got back from an amazing 12 day vacation in Costa Rica.  It was with your help and planning that we had such a great experience.  All of our drivers were on time to take us to various locations, our rooms were first rate and we couldn't have changed a thing.  When other agencies said there was no way we'd be in Costa Rica for Christmas and New Year - you came through with a terrific package and the price was very affordable.
Thank you for making our first experience such a great one.  We look forward to working with you in the future and highly recommend the Costa Rican Connection to anyone planning a trip in the future."

Jim Batdorf

"Just a quick note to say thank you.   We had a great trip to Costa Rica and have a long list of ideas for our next trip - Christmas 2007?  For me, the top three things were -
1. Arenal Observatory Lodge (Wow - Like being in a Postcard).
2. Tabacon Hot Springs (Expensive, by Costa Rica standards, but our evening visit was incredible).
3. A free guided walk through the jungle near Punta Leona at night (not for the faint of heart - tarantulas, scorpion spiders, and a fer-de-lance (a very poisonous snake) - very different from a night hike in the Rocky Mountains of North America).
My wife says she can die happy after seeing a sloth in the wild at Manuel Antonio National Park (one of those strange life goals!).
The whole trip  was wonderful, your suggestions were all very good, and the transfers that you arranged were perfect.  The drivers were nice, punctual to Swiss standards, and very accommodating.  We will return to Costa Rica and we will call The Costa Rican Connection when we start to plan our trip.

"My family and I had a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. I want to thank you and the Costa Rican Connection for setting us up with an excellent itinerary. Everything was well arranged, and almost everything met or exceeded our expectations. All the transports were on time, and the drivers friendly. All the excursions were exciting and fun for the entire family. You really helped us make the most of our time there, and see the wonders of Costa Rica with out any stress or concern. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for the same thing we were as a family traveling to a raw country for the first time. We plan to go back at some point, as we missed a few things due to time constraints. We will be sure to look you up again when that time comes. Thank you again!" (Costa Rica Vacation Package)

Ann Newman

"Just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had in Costa Rica! We returned on Thursday, but were sad to come home. Thank you for helping us plan such a great trip! I had my binoculars out every day. I could not believe the beautiful birds I saw even in the hotel gardens! We enjoyed the tours you helped us plan; the trip to Rio Frio near Cano Negra was so interesting and fun, as was our evening at the Tabacon Hot Springs. The Sky Trek at Monteverde was scary-thrilling. We also set up several short excursions on our own - a trip to the waterfall near La Fortuna, a 2 hour night walk near Saint Elena, and a 2-hour tour with a naturalist in the Monteverde Cloud forest. And of course we spent some time shopping and enjoying great food. We even prepared a Costa Rican recipe - breaded plantain - when cooking at the beach house. We relaxed at the Beach house near the end of the trip, and I felt so well rested on my return to the US.
Thanks again."

"I wanted to tell you how much we all enjoyed the trip and thank you. My favorite part was the river trip, but I liked all of the places
we went. Seeing the volcano erupt was spectacular. The brochures I left for you are from the new botanic garden. It was wonderful.  We'll refer people to you."

 Sagar Damle, MD - Honeymoon

"The best part of this whole trip was having the ability to really tailor our vacation. We had checked out several other vacation packages to other places, epecially Europe, but there was really little flexibility. And typically, there was either too much downtime or too much running around. Working with the Costa Rican Connection gave us the opportuntity to plan a very balanced trip. We had just the right mix of relaxation time mixed with adventures or events. It was really a great experience and I can't wait to go back. (Costa Rica Honeymoon)
