Traveler Testimonials

B. Donley
“We feel privileged to have spent a week with our guide and lucky you are out there providing such an excellent opportunity for seeing and experiencing this great planet. It was our second trip with Natural Habitat and will not be our last.”

L. Knopp
“I loved the jungle lodges. They were so unique and secluded and had so much local character. Thank you for all your help! It was so easy traveling with your company because you are so helpful in planning everything. Everything was super – hotels, food, variety of trips through the rainforest! Both of my trips with your company have been fantastic. Everything is well organized and very efficiently run. The accommodations are unique to the area. They guides have been excellent with their kindness, helpfulness and knowledge. I can’t say enough about your company and its efficiency and excellence. You are to be truly commended on outstanding trips. Thank you so much!”

“Our guide was a delight to be with at every moment. He went above and beyond to make everyone happy and comfortable. We loved his joyful spirit as well as his knowledge.”

J. Llwellyn
“The trip exceeded my expectations. I congratulate you for attention to all details regarding the tour. There were no snags. Our Expedition Leader had great enthusiasm. But the highlight was seeing and hearing the Arenal volcano erupting and seeing all the birds and other wildlife.”

J. Mariott
"Costa Rica itself and the incredible ecosystem with all the birds, flora and other creatures, was the highlight. We enjoyed the ability of the guide to spot and identify so many of the bird species at a glance. We saw 127 different species of birds alone!! The food was so delicious and the people were so nice...the environments were so lovely. We loved staying in the local lodges. It helps to complete the creation of the atmosphere you are in. Tortuguero is so remote and being in your own cabin with almost no one or nothing visible except jungle when you look out of the windows is so great. The sounds were fantastic. The hotel in Monteverde is so beautiful and the rooms are so comfortable. Arenal Observatory Lodge is so close to the volcano and has such beautiful grounds and walks. The staff in all the places were wonderful."

C. Rarick
"I enjoyed most the variety of locations experienced by the trip. We covered a lot of ground, stayed very busy, and experienced a lot of wonderful things, all without feeling rushed or exhausted. The pace and variety were just right. I also cannot say enough good things about our guide. His knowledge of the flora and fauna of Costa Rica is nothing short of encyclopedic. He did a wonderful job of weaving in just the right amount of cultural experiences; our meals provided by individuals or small typical restaurants were wonderful and memorable. And in addition to his deep scientific knowledge, he had the ability to relate extremely well to the people in his group. This was my first Natural Habitat trip. I plan to take more, largely due to my positive impression of the guide provided on this trip."

C. Newberger
“The trip exceeded my expectations! It was my third trip to Costa Rica and the best one yet. I highly recommend this trip for future travelers.”

A. & J. May
“You opened our eyes to a new country which we found exciting, and impressive with its efforts to preserve its natural heritage. We enjoyed the people we spoke with and their pride in their country. They have much to be proud of.”

D. Buchanan
“We had a wonderful guide – he made the trip a great success. He made us fall in love with Costa Rica. You guys are the best!”

J. Feeney
"I especially loved the walks on the hanging bridges, zip lining and the tarzan swing, the abundant birds, seeing the rainforest up close, and the food was so delicious that I was really surprised. I did not expect that the food would be such a highlight. Our guide was wonderful in every way. His very gentle and calm manner was a delight every day. He found every animal possible and his knowledge of Costa Rican birds was excellent. He could not have been any better, we love him. The places we stayed were amazing. I loved them all, especially the lodge in Tortuguero. It was really living in the rain forest."

I. Arneberg
"We were so impressed with our guide's knowledge and professionalism. We always felt well looked after and safe. His love of his beautiful Costa Rican country came through and he was so proud and happy to welcome us and share. Any question we asked about a plant or animal or anything about the region he answered immediately. He is a wealth of knowledge and he was very funny, always entertaining us with funny stories"

P. Papa
"Incredible, incredible, incredible! There is nothing else to say on how great the whole trip was."
