We are back from our trip and had an AMAZING time! Thank you so much for all of your hard work putting this together for us.Every aspect was simply perfect. The driver was waiting for us at the airport and drove us safely to Nayara. What an incredible property! We were immediately loving the warm weather and the beautiful peaceful surroundings. The room was huge and so clean beautiful. We spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the breathtaking view. We ate dinner at the restaurant the first night which was great. It never felt crowded at all on the property although there were many people staying there. The breakfast (included every day) was perfect. It was great how it was just a little different every day. We loved the pool and mellow atmosphere during our stay. We ventured in to La Fortuna for a couple of hours one late afternoon which was fine but all you really need is what is there for your on the grounds of Nayara. Simply amazing!!!
The Zip Lining with Sky Tram/Sky Trek was INCREDIBLE! All this time, I thought I would be scared and was far from. It was SO safe and very exciting. I would definitely do it again! What a great company! Compared to other zip line trips I saw in the area, this was surely the best! (and from what I heard, the fastest and longest!)
The hanging bridges tour was great. So many amazing views and great hearing the sounds of the wildlife. The Night hike and The Springs Resort hot springs was incredible. We enjoyed the informative and slightly strenuous hike followed by dinner at the springs resort. I’m so glad we chose this place as it seemed we had the entire place to ourselves all evening. After a nice buffet dinner, we had over 2 hours to just enjoy the springs.
Panorama in Manuel Antonio was everything you said it would be. Diego was great and their new concierge, Melissa was very helpful in checking us in. We were expecting Chris but she was just fine. Chris called to set the menu for dinner for that evening. We were a bit surprised when Chris did not actually come to prepare the dinner for us which is what we expected but one of his assistants did. It was still delicious and we had plenty of food for the next day like you said we would. The White Water Rafting with H2O was awesome! It is very hot in MA so spending most of the day in the water was great. I would definitely do that again as well. We spoke to Juan who was scheduled to take us to the Peace Lodge the next day and scheduled to do a tour of the National Park with him before the journey north. It was defnitely a great time and a perfect way to end our time in Manuel Antonio. We also enjoyed the journey with him and Paul to the Peace Lodge. We learned a lot from them.
The Peace Lodge was simply beautiful! I think staying there one night was just the perfect amount of time and a nice mellow way to end our vacation. After getting used to the extremely high elevation, we were able to enjoy several hikes on the grounds and just relaxing in front of our fireplace and enjoying the beautiful room and grounds. I have never seen a bathroom like that! The people who worked there were SO helpful and kind. No one let us lift a finger! Upon arrival, there was a bottle of wine in our room with a nice note congratulating us for our honeymoon. We never received anything like this from the other places so it was definitely a nice way to end our trip. We ate dinner in the restaurant which was fabulous. We were the only ones there for most of the time and it was very romantic. Early the nexzt morning we were able to go on a nice hike and enjoy the buffet breakfast as well before heading to the airport.
Thanks so much for planning such a memorable trip for us. I appreciate you answering all of my questions (no matter how silly) along the way and guiding us to doing the best things for our honeymoon. You are so well respected and spoken of by everyone we met on our journey! We were even lucky enough to meet 2 other clients of yours on our various tours who also shared an equally great experience.
Thanks again and we hope to visit Costa Rica again in the future!!
