15 years later… Fifteen years ago, in 2002, my husband and I visited Costa Rica on a private tour. Everything was arranged then through the local travel agency Rain Forest Tours. It was so successful that when we decided this year to organize a tour for our family, including our children and grandchildren, for my husband’s 70th birthday, we thought that for a group of 13 people with such a broad spectrum of ages (2, 3, 4, 6,7,10,14, 30’s. 40’s, 60’s and 1 very special 70) Costa Rica was the best option. We sent a mail to Rain Forest Tours. We received an immediate and friendly answer directly from the President of the company, Arthur Napoles. To make a long story… (12 days of touring around…) short, we had a family trip that no one in the family will ever forget. We had a very good choice of itinerary, hotels and activities, all at a very competitive cost, I assume that this is because we worked directly with the local office and all service suppliers had a high level of respect towards the Rain Forest Tours management; the daily transports with Eduardo (the bilingual driver/guide) were excellent, opening doors for us everywhere we arrived. By the way we also met Gerardo, the driver/guide who took us around 15 years ago and picked us up this time at the airport, and he was also excellent, then and today. All in all, we wholeheartedly recommend Costa Rica and Rain Forest Tours.
