“This was the BEST vacation ever! Marco, Onik and "Chicken" were fabulous. They treated us like family and, I must admit, we incorporated them into ours. They were incredibly knowledgeable, gracious, kind and fun. It was no secret that they loved their work and imparted that enthusiam to all of us!. We enjoyed the variety of activities and especially all the laughter shared. I will never forget the marvelous scenery, the history and culture of Costa Rica. Each of our guides imparted a passion for each and every day and we LOVE them!!!!"
“My family and I are all glowing about the memories from Costa Rica with our fantastic guide Marco. We learned new skills and information that will stay with us forever.”
"We saw everything the grandkids wanted to see, from crocodiles to monkeys to snakes and birds. The kids all got to pick their own termites and eat them! Horray!!! The white-water rafting was just fabulous! and the zip line!!! Like flying! The kids were fascinated by the chocolate tree, and then they got to prepare the beans and make their own chocolate! The same with sugar cane -- just wonderful!"
"This is our third family trip with NatHab and I am constantly amazed at the experiences you can bring to life for us. This is due, of course, to the stable of guides you have on your team--these guys in Costa Rica were truly unbelievable, arranging activity after activity for our family and making this trip a family adventure of a lifetime!"
"The mix of activities was great for our family. We had a wide variety at just the right pace. Estaban had superior knowledge, friendliness and and sense of humor; he was great with our 2 13 year olds. We are now seriously considering returning on the same trip with 2 other grandchildren and we would love it if Estaban was still guiding then!"
"We were so fortuntate to have been with Marcos and our driver, Juan Carlos. Even though Carlos did not really speak English well, he was helpful and there when he was needed. Marcos made the trip really interesting and fun. We had wonderful mealtimes with him along our route and did everything he could to make the trip wonderful--including getting me, at 75, on the zip line and loving it. (He was also very wise to let me set my own limits in certain situations). We were taken care of from the moment we got through customs off the plane until we were taken back to the airport. Everything worked like it was planned and we were never left wondering what was happening."
"We were well taken care of; always welcomed immediately and all plans and reservations were always on time. The fact that Leo has such a nice rapport with local people, you can feel the warmth right back from the people that we met. Leo was an exceptional Expedition Leader. We felt completely comfortable, well looked after and extremely well informed. There was nothing that we felt was overlooked. All with a wonderful, energetic and fun personality. His assistant, Jackie, was also wonderful. She made sure to be of great help and also very knowledgeable."
“I enjoyed seeing some of the many different parts of Costa Rica – rain forest, Pacific coast, Caribbean coast, etc. Our guides bent over backwards to make us all happy, especially with the children in our group. They did an excellent job of showing us the real Costa Rica.”
“Everything was so enjoyable! Our guides were always thinking about what we needed, especially with the youngest child in the mix (5 years-old). Our girls loved our guides and cried when saying goodbye. We are back from our trip and all of us are missing both of them dearly!!”

“We really connected with our guide and couldn’t have had a better trip! We sincerely enjoyed seeing the wildlife and staying in the lodges. It really exceeded our expectations. There was not one thing we didn’t love about this trip!”
“Our guide did everything possible to make our trip a success. The most exciting event was seeing the baby turtles coming out of the nest and running into the ocean!”
