Caravan Costa Rica Tour June 24 - July 2 2016

This summer Jan and I decided to explore Costa rica. After researching we decided the Caravan Tour would be the best way to see Most of Costa Rica. monkey Tiki

The 9 day tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Ruth Gonzales was imformative as well as entertaining as she guided us through Costa Rica. All of our hotels were very nice with mostly excellent buffets. Every day Ruth explained the procedures for the day ( when to set out bags, dining times, etc. Our bus driver louis was great and assisted us all along the way.

Our Group (44 total) was a mix of young and old, couples and families, and friends. It was nice to be on a caravan with such a wonderful and enthusiastic group. We all got to know each other along the way.

Caravan provided breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. All were buffet style, usually with local dishes consisting of salad, rice, beans, chicken, fish, and fruit juices.
