"Oh my gosh! You were all great! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your patience with all my questions and emails and concerns while planning this trip. You are all great! The way this trip was planned out was perfect, ending in Manuel Antonio at Hotel Mariposa. I appreciate how well you considered our interests, made sure we were getting what we would like, and executed the planning down to every detail. Thank you so much! I will recommend, and have already recommended PTW for planning a trip to Costa Riica. Gracias! y Pura Vida!
Lynne"

"From our initial idea of going to Costa Rica exploring various websites of where to go and which travel agent to use, PTW was identified. From our early email exploring trips and developing an initial itinerary to contacting various agents on the phone (Enrique and Maria, thanks) getting their opinions , we modified our trip a couple of times and ended up with a perfect itinerary, the only downside is we didn't stay longer.
We did contact PTW by email when in Costa Rica, to modify our transportation time from Nayara. Their response was quick and accommodating.
We have never traveled using vouchers, candidly was a bit skeptical, never a problem or a question when handing them to the vendors.
PTW was always professional.
Thank you."

"Your company covered all the basics and we feel like we had a well rounded trip. The only thing that could have been better, we didn't receive our waterproof map or animal guide on time, so rush shipping would have been appreciated. Other then that, the hotels were great and we had no problem with the vouchers. Very easy relaxed trip thanks to you!!! We had a great honeymoon!"

"I almost gave a 10 on everything but there were a few things that we definitely would have changed if we had known better. We certainly would have completely skipped Country Inn and Suites and spent an extra day at either Arenal Springs. Had we known what Monteverde was like we would have cut time down there and added time to Rafiki Safari Lodge. However, overall our trip was wonderful. It exceeded my expectations and was certainly much better than we ever could have done on our own. Your company did a great job and I would highly recommend!"

"Very wonderful vacation that you put together for us. Glad we planned so much in advance and then just added a little while there. We took a night walk in villa blanca which was very good. We expected all drivers to speak english and provide some touring input on the rides - this only occurred with the second ride. We also were hoping the guided walks were a bit longer so we could see more. They seemed to stop too soon. We are very appreciative of the effort you made on our kosher food needs. Having a cooler was helpful and getting fruits and vegetables on the tours was nice. Thanks for everything. We would recommend your company again."
