“Had an awesome time!! Birdwatching at the hotel in Sarapiqui was worth the whole trip in itself! It was also special to do the zipline in Sarapiqui, to stay at the lodge in Tortuguero on the Caribbean coast beach, and to take the tour of the La Paz waterfalls and the awesome butterfly exhibits. I can’t say enough about the Osa extension. On the boat ride to Cano Island, humpback whales (a mother, calf and juvenile) swam alongside our boat. You talk about a thrilling experience.”

“Itinerary was excellent, and tour was awesome in every way. From the planning to the execution, excellent tour. Would go again.”
– Charlene B. (CO)

“Wonderful job. I’m thrilled that I had a chance to take this trip. The experience was incredible.” Karen T. (NC)

“I thought the trip was terrific. A friend of mine said before I left that I would fall in love with the country. Was he ever right! I have never had so much fun learning new things and seeing new places. Being a lifelong plantsman and insect fancier, I couldn’t get enough of either. It was the best tour I’ve gone on. I have traveled a lot, but this was the first in Latin America. It has spoiled me for other tours.”
– Phil P. Master Gardener (PA)

“Our Costa Rica trip was extraordinary. Each day was filled with hands-on, engaging experiences that allowed the students to come away with a deep understanding of the culture and ecology of Costa Rica.
Costa Rica will remain a special place in their hearts and they will remember the trip as a highlight of their High School experiences.”
– Heidi P. School Administrator, Charlotte (NC)

“The Guide’s expert, highly instructive guidance of the Panama Canal was the reason I made the trip. He was absolutely the best. Thank you for your expert preparation for it. Everything went perfectly.”
– Jack E. (NY)

“I can only say that the trip was an experience I will never forget. I really had no idea that we would be as busy as we were and able to see as much as we did. Our Guide, was able to convey to us the differences and similarities of our countries. His knowledge of plants, environment and his home country is vast.”
– Brenda M (VA)

“This tour is a fun mix of culture and beautiful Costa Rica gardens. Our knowledgeable guides made every effort to keep us happy, interested and entertained.”
– Carol G. (NC)

“I want to reiterate my total delight with the entire week. It was just a wonderful horticulture treat since I’m not familiar with many of the tropical plants – and the ones that are the same as ours are simply giant-sized! And the birds – what a treat. And the tour guide – I don’t think I will ever be satisfied with one again.”
– Barbara T. (PA)

“For sheer beauty and variety, this tour should not be missed. The itinerary offered dozens of up close views of birds and butterflies, waterfalls and wildlife. From fabulous flower gardens to smoking volcanoes, from rain forests to hot springs, I enjoyed every minute of it. The knowledge of the hosts and guides, including their ability to spot the colorful birds and other wild creatures, was astounding. A must see!”
