Costa Rica

Our holiday went very well, Costa Rica and its people are very very nice, the landscapes fantastic and nature abundant.  Charlotte and her team were very helpful, though not needed much as all ran smoothly - a good sign of a job well done, they were very helpful clearing up a couple of minor items. 

The locations were very good - people always nice and food good.  The tours at Tirimbina were unexpectedly excellent, the guides superbly well informed, and very enthusiastic about their topics, my only real regret is not to have spent more time in Tirimbina, La Selva, Sarapiqui area. 

The diving was good with  sharks, some good shoals and octopus.  Friendly and the sea to ourselves, no crowding at all, few other boats even on horizon.  Ralph our dive leader was very good.

We will definitely go back to Central America - for diving and for land based aspects, and are looking at options for Belize in 2013.
