Namuwoki Lodge Resort
Jungle-shrouded lodge of wooden cabins, designed for nature lovers who are happy to tune out and disconnect while on holiday.
Just steps from Playa Chiquita's pristine sands, Namuwoki Lodge Resort is embraced by dense tropical forest and floral plants. Stay in one of the handful of wooden cabins, each with a private, hammock-slung terrace, and enjoy the pool and Jacuzzi.
The hotel caters for nature lovers who are happy to tune out and disconnect while on holiday: there is no TV or Wifi to distract from the attractions of the wild environment, which reverberates with howler monkey calls. The jungle setting dominates the buildings rather than the other way round, and a stay here offers a sense of immersion in nature. Sloths and exotic birds are frequent visitors to the grounds.

Highlight?: All the wildlife, absolutely amazingDJ, Usk
Highlight?: Seeing turtles laying eggs on the beach in TortugueroAD, Ilkley
We always ask each other what the highlight was, but always fail. It was really the variety. There is really so much to remember.JS, Bath
Highlight?: Turtles laying, sloths scratching, toucans screeching, frogs jumping, iguanas climbing, Mayan steps galore, sharks a swimming, stalactite dodging in the blue hole...All in all brilliantMS, Twickenham
Great mix of high adrenaline and chilled activities to suit all the family.JS, London
Costa Rica lived up to our expectations in every way. We all had a fantastic family holiday.EJ, London
It is difficult to single out any one part as being most memorable. For me (as a geologist) the trip to Poas Volcano was great. The ziplining at Punta Islita was superb.RH, Peterborough
We have many good memories and it's difficult to identify a single best experience. Each of the Lodges we stayed at impressed us by their environmental policies. Each had comfortable accommodation ranging from quite simple to quite extravagant. Importantly for us they were each located in different types of habitat so although there was some overlap in what we saw, there were sufficient differences for us to be continually interested.NW, Carnforth
So many - sloths close up, wild monkeys eating coconuts from our hand, finding a snake in Falls resort, zipwiring in Arenal, canoeing to old Costa Rican farmhouse, night walks in Monteverde, whale and dolphin watching on my birthday in Manuel Antonio, birdwatching in Tortuguero, massive iguanas in Mawamba, walking home from dinner in a massive downpour in Manuel Antonio, watching toucans and armadillo in Monteverde.JS, Amersham
Costa Rica is too beautiful to miss!PC, Moreton-in-Marsh
The noises and sounds surrounding us all day and night, created by all the wildlife was fantastic. Never heard anything like it and loved it. The Costa Rican hospitability is something to live up to they have it right!St, Swords
Most memorable experience: “Very difficult to be specific but an eclectic selection would include:- Boat trip excursion with excellent guide from Tortuga Lodge; Singer/Musician at Dinner at Arenal Nayara Hotel; Crossing Arenal Lake (clear blue skies and we were the only passengers on the boat) and then scenic drive to Monteverde”VB, Sloane Sqaure
Highlights:- Hard to choose, but the noises and sounds surrounding us all day and night, created by all the wildlife was fantastic. Never heard anything like it and loved it. The Costa Rican hospitability is something to live up to they have it right!ST, Swords

Highlight?: This is difficult! We loved Tortuga Lodge, Bosque de Paz and Aguila de Osa Inn. Made new friends who we will remain in contact.MG, Uckfield
Highlight?: Visit to Tortuguero was exciting and remote. Rancho Margot was our favourite accommodation. It was a privilege to visit this beautiful country.MC, Arlesly
Most memorable experiences:Seeing the turtles nesting in Tortugero, the magical Tortugero national park and Monteverde. We also loved Tamarindo to chill and surf!EdVC, London

Costa Rica with Journey Latin America is one of the best holidays we have ever had, if not the best.MD, Southam
Commitment to Eco-Tourism and Respect for local people evident throughoutMD, Southam
Most Memorable Moment?: So many highlights that it is difficult to pick any one out - but the evening trip to the Turtle beach at Tortuguero, seeing Green Sea Turtles laying eggs and returning to the sea, was quite incredible.DD, Holmfirth
We had a really exceptional trip. The mix of beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife made it a real adventure and yet the logistics made it achievable and stress free. Costa Rica has beaches, wildlife and lots of outdoor fun (zip lines, rafting, and ATV trails for example) which make it ideal for a holiday which met the desires of all the family.GP, Warwick
Costa Rica as a whole was very impressive in its attitude towards eco-tourism. Actively reforesting areas that have previously been de-forested and setting up new areas of rain forest/park.BC, N19
Everything felt "easy" and stress free. The most memorable aspect was driving through fantastic scenery, so much to see!AF, Cardiff
Highlights: Monkeys and macaws on the trees by our bedroom ,and the White water rafting to and from Pacuare Lodge and swimming down the river!JB, Ashford
Most memorable experiences: White water rafting. Watching the turtles at Tortuguero. Everything about Montverde.RA, Lichfield
It was all pretty memorable but the view of the Arenal volcano from our boat transfer across the lake sticks in my mind. It was a completely clear day and the volcano was steaming. Also the sleeping toucan on the El Refugio Twilight Tour. Also Rio Perdido was a lovely place for a couple of days relaxation.EW, Newport
Everything was organised like clockwork but without feeling intrusive. The whole itinerary fully met our needs with fabulous hotels and some really exiting journeys. The flight from Punta Islita being a particular highlight, along with the journey from Arenal to MonteVerde. Costa Rica with Journey Latin America is one of the best holidays we have ever had, if not the best. Thank you and particularly to Hannah.”LD, Harpenden
Everything was amazing...This is the best family holiday we have ever had. Even our 20 year old daughter, who has travelled extensively, agreed that Costa Rica is wonderfully unique. The itinerary provided by Joirney Latin America provided a varied and interestingly diverse view of the country. Each accommodation was memorable and contributed towards an amazing trip. Thank you.RW, Cheltenham
