Dear Mr. Roberto Fernandez & Luz Caceres;

I want to let you know that Daisy Matarrita gave us excellent service, ideas, and assistance both in planning and during our vacation in Costa Rica. We had no intention of using an agent for this trip as we have been to Costa Rica before on our own. However, when we called to find out about booking Pacuare, Daisy listened carefully to what we liked and gave us several suggestions that made us change our mind and let her plan our trip. She was so quick to reply to all our questions that I am sure she has her internet access available to her at every moment. She quickly revised the itinerary plan whenever we made suggestions. Even a request at 6pm Sunday night was quickly answered.

Jose was our driver 3 times in San Jose was friendly and always on time.

Our two night stay at Pacuare was the highlight of our wonderful trip. Every staff member we met was very friendly; gardeners, maids, guides, restaurant staff, manager, everyone…. You have trained them well!

Jose Luis spoiled us with his kindness, good humor, and fun-loving spirit on 3 beautiful hikes. Even hiking in the rain is fun with Jose Luis. Roy guided our boat with expertise, making for a fun adventure and safe ride. Gustavo made the bus ride on 11/29 go quickly with his comments about San Jose and the countryside. We loved the Riverhouse we stayed in – great ambience. All of the architecture is beautifully designed for comfort and enjoyment of the surroundings.

The food was very good. I would love the recipes for Expresso flan and Chocolate mousse. We appreciated that you have one low priced wine on the menu (red or white $5/glass or $25/bottle). We would have happily paid $5 to have 2 large coffees delivered to our room at 7am, but felt the staff were probably quite busy. It would be a nice option to add. (Yes we could walk for coffee but our room was too nice to leave.)

We have traveled to many of the most romantic and beautiful places on earth and your lodge is one of our favorites. If I write a Tripadvisor report, I will send it to you. Please know that Tripadvisor is your best tool for USA business.

Sincerely,
Linda

Hi Daisy and Grettel,

I just wanted to send a quick note thanking you for all your help planning and coordinating an absolutely fantastic vacation. We couldn't have been more thrilled with everything. Everything was absolutely flawless and we can't thank you enough for that. The hotels were amazing, as were all the excursions you planned. As to the transfers, every single driver was punctual, professional, courtesy, and safe. Everything really just went off without a hitch and you made it the perfect vacation. Down to every single detail, it was all taken care of perfectly!

In particular, we wanted to say how much we LOVED Pacuare Lodge. When we go back to Costa Rica, we might just spend all of our time there. It was definitely the most memorable part of our trip. The rafting was phenomenal and all of the staff there really made the stay - we loved how our rafting guides were also our guides, waiters, bar tenders, etc. and really enjoyed getting to know them. They have a wonderful trip of people there. And the food was so FANTASTIC and our room was amazing too. Such a romantic, special place.

We will write this all up on tripadvisor, but just wanted to send you a separate note of appreciation. Thanks again for all your help planning a most perfect trip! We can't say thank you enough!!

Hello Grettel,
A belated email from my return to home. I got home on the 17th and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my vacation. I could go on for pages about all the fun and interesting things that I did and saw, but that would take too long. Suffice to say that my vacation was extraordinary. The people I met were superb. The drivers were safe, the guides were knowledgeable, professional and as a rule had wonderful personalities. Accommodations and activities were all completely acceptable. I will hopefully definitely return to Selva Verde and especially Pacuare Lodge. They were superb! The employees at Pecuare were beyond compare. I have been raving about them to all my friends and hope that I can send some of them your way. I stay at a hotel in Washington, DC 2-3 days per week and they have that same level of employee. It is rare, indeed.

Thank you again for a wonderful vacation and Happy Holidays to you!

Grettel,

What else can I say except thank you! Thank you thank you thank you! The trip was amazing! Costa Rica was even more beautiful then I thought possible. Your travel company was so amazing and I really couldn't end the trip without saying thanks. Everything went on without a hitch. The drivers came exactly on the dot as when you said. They were kind and helpful (we really liked Barney I think his name was. Who picked us up in San Jose and took us to Arenal). The hotels were superb! The puddle jumper flight was easy and much quicker. Next time we will do that instead of a driver every time. If you have a website I can write some positive feedback please send it to me so I can do so. I will recommend you to anyone and everyone who asks :)

Thanks again! I put all my pictures on facebook in case you want to look Chelsea Brooke Orozco and I also wrote some reviews on TripAdvisor under the name TravelChels.

Take care and thanks a million!

Grettel,

Thank you so much for coordinating our trip and providing exceptional recommendations. Everything went exactly as provided in the itinerary and timeline. All Grano de Oror/Pacuare Lodge/Adventures Naturales/Shuttle personnel were very helpful, positive, talkative, and just plain fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Costa Rica and can't wait to come back!

Thanks again and Pura Vida,

Grettel,

Last week I returned from my trip to Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica.
I wanted to drop this note to thank you for all your help and support throughout my stay in Costa Rica. You and your staff have been great in providing transportation, hotel arrangements and timely information. I always value your suggestions for tours and local attractions even if I couldn’t use them this time because of the business nature of my trip.
Thanks for a job well done,

Hello Grettel –
I just wanted to take a moment to write to thank you and the rest of the staff at Pacuare Lodge.  Our recent visit there for our honeymoon was truly one of the most wonderful experiences of our lives.  We were awestruck by the beauty of the lodge and the surroundings.  We cannot imagine that there is anywhere else on earth that would have been more perfect for us.  The staff were consistently outstanding – each and every one we met.  Mynor was a wonderful guide and we left Costa Rica feeling as if he was a friend not just a driver.  The river rafting was great and Carlitos was an excellent adventure guide!!!   The food was delicious and we marveled at everything that was made possible in that remote setting.  Finally, the honeymoon bungalow was delightful beyond description.  It was a special place we will remember always.
We also enjoyed Latitude 10 and are grateful for your help in arranging our accommodations there as well.  But it is Pacuare that we will hold in our hearts until we can return someday.
Thanks again.

Ola!

Wow!  What a fantastic vacation, it couldn't have been more perfect.  We had a terrific time and fell in love with your beautiful country and all the Costa Ricans that we had the pleasure of meeting. The Pacuare Lodge and the Honeymoon Suite were the highlight of our trip and most certainly, it was the most beautiful eco lodge that we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.  Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and completely at ease.  Mauricio was our main guide and he was terrific!  The meals were top notch, the suite superior and excursions, delightful!  All our transportation was superb and punctual.  The Lost Iguana was delightful, but with the excursions we didn't have time to enjoy their amenities.  Really would have liked to have enjoyed their hibiscus maze but just didn't have the time.  The Parador was wonderful, dining delightful, the view, awesome.  What more can i say, you made our trip one of a lifetime!  We will be back and look forward to visiting Corcovado, also, we look forward to sending our son and his girlfriend to the Pacuare Lodge when he graduates from medical school.  He lived for 6 months in Puntarenas, with a local family, in a language immersion program, and loved your country and people, as well, so i know that will be a special trip for him. 

Pura Vida!

Hi Grettel,
 I just wanted to let you know that me and my new wife were very, very impressed with our whole honeymoon trip.  We want to thank you for your help.  The vouchers for everything made it very easy and care-free -- we definitely needed that after so much wedding planning and what-not.  We are extremely happy with your service.  The Pacuare Lodge was beyond anything we could have ever imagined.  The only hiccup was the late ride from Monteverde back to San Jose, but that ended up being even better since we had a nice private taxi ride in a Jeep that was better for Michelle's car sickness.  Your phone call was much appreciated as well.
We are planning on writing a review of our excellent experience as I had trouble finding out about CRNA experiences beforehand (although I read a lot about how great the Pacuare Lodge in other reviews). Are there any specific  travel or review websites that you prefer/recommend we submit our review to?
Thanks again and hopefully we'll be planning another trip back in the future!

I just wanted to write a very quick note to tell you how impressed we were with EVERYTHING at Pacuare.  What a fabulous place!  The guides, accommodations (oh my god... The Linda Suites was stunning) and gourmet food were far beyond anything we expected. The entire group is still taking about it and how much we hated to leave. I will send you a more detailed review when I get back to my office.

Sincere regards,

Hi Gre -

I want to thank you and everyone we met with Aventuras Naturales  for a wonderful trip to your country.  Our guides, the staff at the lodge and the other agencies you used to make this a memorable anniversary were outstanding - each and every one.

This I hope will be the first of many trips to Costa Rica.  I will be working hard on my Spanish so that I may more completely experience the wonderful people and culture next time.  I cannot say enough good things, and I think we owe it to you for setting up such a good itinerary.
Muchas gracias!

Dear Grettel,
I am sorry for the late email, but I wanted to thank you very much for organizing our trip to Costa Rica. We had a really wonderful time and can’t wait to come back.
You did a really good job in the variety of the places and the activities. We had no real complaints. Tortuguero was excellent. Pacuare Lodge and the rafting were out of this world. My sons did not want to leave Pacuare Lodge. Arenal and the hot springs were a good experience. Unfortunately, we did not really get a chance to enjoy the resort because we went mountain biking and then went on the tour and the hot springs. Monteverde was also very good, with the ziplining as a good activity. Finally, the Riu was a great way to relax and enjoy the rest of our time in Costa Rica. Oh, I forgot the Don Carlos. Again, very good, with very good service.
So, once again, thank you very much for a wonderful itinerary. Everything worked out really well, including the transportation.
Pura Vida.

Hi Grettel,
I'm writing to thank you for your help with our vacation to Costa Rica. Everything went exactly as planned. There were no problems and we couldn't be more pleased. We had the best food, met the best people, and had the best vacation ever.
Costa Rica is such an amazing place. Coming from the desert, it took a couple of days at the Pacuare Lodge to convince myself that staying in the river view suite you recommended was not just a dream. Our guide, Edgar "Pitico", was also so much fun to be around. He worked tirelessly to make sure we had something to do at all times during our stay. We can't thank him enough. 
The food was incredible everywhere we stayed but especially at the Pacuare. I simply can't believe those meals were real. As a couple, we always requested different menu items and everything was prepared to perfection. It's very impressive that your chefs can prepare such standout meals anywhere, let alone in such a remote area. I've never had better food and to have ice cream in the jungle is quite a treat.
Yesterday, after we arrived back in Tucson, I went shopping for our favorite Costa Rican foods and fruits. We will try to eat like Costa Ricans until we can visit Costa Rica again. Until then, we will continue to recommend your agency (mentioning your name) and the Pacuare Lodge to people we come across, as we did many times in Costa Rica.
Kind Regards,
Michael Stevenson

Grettel –
Wanted to thank you for arranging such a great trip to Costa Rica for Dawn and I. We had a super time and would change very little (only thing we would not do, the Tabacon Hot Springs tour, since our Hotel had such a nice hot spring) if we did it again.  The highlight was the time spent in Pacuare.  The lodge and the service were exceptional…we will do that again. Next time we visit we’ll look for other places within Costa Rica that are similar to Pacuare – Eco-friendly, beautiful and exceptional service.   We also really enjoyed  our time spent with our driver, Mynor Segura .  He was extremely helpful and friendly.  I hope we get a chance to spend time with him on our next trip to Costa Rica.   Thanks again.

Grettel,

Thank you so much for planning our wonderful vacation. We have always done our own planning and never used a travel agent or allowed others to plan for us, so this was new. You did an amazing job! Everything worked out beautifully from transportation and activities to punctuality and hospitality. What a wonderful country!  Thank you very much. We will recommend Costa Rica and you in particular to those of our friends who want an adventure.
Gracias!

Hi, Grettel:
I just wanted to tell you what a GREAT time my wife and I had in Costa Rica this past week!  Every detail of the plan and itinerary you put together for us worked to perfection, and the drivers and guides we had were exceptional!  Each driver and guide was extremely friendly and each made a real effort to point out and describe all of the natural beauty of Costa Rica.  We had absolutely no problems whatsoever, and were treated like royalty wherever we went.  I think the highpoints of our vacation were the zip line canopy tour by Arenal  Mundo Adventura and the visit to Tabacon Hot Springs - - both were just amazing experiences which my wife and I will remember for a very long time.  I have attached a short video clip of me going down one of the zip lines at the waterfall - - what a gorgeous way to get a close-up view of the waterfall!  The CD ROM we were able to purchase after our canopy tour (at a very reasonable price!) with pictures and video of us on the zip lines was a real treasure.  We will enjoy showing it to all of our friends and relatives.  The resort at Tamarindo Diria was beautiful, and we really enjoyed just lying by the beach enjoying the sunshine and beautiful surroundings.  It was one of the most relaxing days we have experienced in a long time.
Thank you for your effort in putting this all-too-brief vacation together for us on such short notice!  I will recommend you and Tour Costa Rica to others who are traveling to your beautiful country or are looking for a great vacation.  Thanks for the experience!!
Best Regards,
Ronald Hutton

Grettel, 
I meant to send you an email when we returned from our trip, but I have been so very busy.  You did a fantastic job on organizing our trip so that it truly met our needs and desires.  You listened so well to the little details including the areas, motels, and excursions.  We have never been the type people to do the tourist type of vacation like everyone else.  You gave us a variety just like I requested - zip line, animals, snorkeling, etc.  The motels were perfect, a little natural one day and luxury the next.  Even the driver that picked us up from the airport and returned us to the airport was super.  Thank you so much for taking the time to listen so that you could provide us the perfect vacation.  If you ever need any recommendation don't hesitate to ask.

Costa Rica is so beautiful and so friendly we have been recommending it everyone. I hope you do not mind, but we will be passing your name on to others who wish to travel to Costa Rica. Thank you again for a fabulous trip and we are sure we will return someday, hopefully not too far off.

Hi Luz, Pablo and Roberto,
How are you guys doing?  I hope the economy has not hurt Aventuras as much as it has other businesses.  Here at Florida State University we are doing as well as we can.  
I wanted to share with you something very neat.  A couple of weeks ago my husband and I went to a party and the topic of Costa Rica came up (that is not unusual, however, as we began to talk about it we realized that 7 people out of the group, plus us had shared very similar experiences and places in CR including the Pacuare! And Aventuras Naturales was the common denominator.

Over the years, I have usually shared the various itineraries that Pablo has prepared for me and then recommend that my friends call you guys and book their own trips.  They all had GREAT things to say about their trips, your customer service, the transports and each hotel that they stayed at.  The rafting at Pacuare is definitely the trip that gets everyone most fired up to talk about.
You guys have consistently delivered and I felt very proud and happy to have been able to help our friends enjoy our country.  Thanks so much for doing such a great job; it is nice to be able to recommend someone that I can trust and know is the best in the industry.

Saludos y un abrazo,

Hi Grettel, 
Just wanted to thank you for a fabulously planned trip.   My mother and I loved the Pacuare Jungle Lodge -- Everyone there was so great -- including the other guests and wow the river suite was sooo cool.  Cholo our guide was amazing.  He's a rock star!

Also loved the Hotel in Santa Elena as well as in San Jose.  You live and learn what your tastes are -- I guess I learned I liked those hotels because they were very nice and boutique.  The one in La Fortuna was a little too big and touristy, (not criticizing your choice, it was a nice hotel, but now I know more what I like). 

All the transports were on time and really friendly.  I do hope we tipped enough or too much.  We were never sure.  

FYI went to two restaurants in Santa Elena that I'd recommend -- Chimara and Sophie’s (same gal owns both.)

Overall Costa Rica is so beautiful.  Thanks again.  Hope to vacation in CR again and spend time on both coasts. 

Cheers, 
Kathy Roming

I want to thank you for everything you did for me and my son from the beginning back in May through our return home last Sunday.
 
EVERYTHING was fabulous.  The employees of Costa Rica Nature Adventures are, to a person, the best that I have encountered.  Timely, courteous, informed and willing to go the extra distance.
 
The Pacuare Lodge and the rafting into and out of it were the highlights of what was already an unbelievable trip. 
 
I filled out all the rating questionnaires that your employees gave me stating how strongly I feel about the quality of the services and properties you booked for us.  I just wanted to make sure you knew that my appreciation and praise also extends to you.
 
It is a great company you work for and a beautiful and an amazing country you live in.

Hey Grettel, 
Now that we're back from our trip, I thought I’d drop you a note.  Our trip was wonderful in every aspect; the people, your country, the weather and the activities. Our Pacuare guides, tito, cholo and max made that part of the trip extra special. We enjoyed minor, our driver, very much.

The only complaint is that the Costa Rica trip will be very difficult to top for our vacation next year.  Great trip!

Hi Pablo - Just back from Costa Rica - wanted to let you know we had a great time.  Really enjoyed the white water rafting and our stay at Pacuare Lodge, everyone was great, food was the best we had on the trip and we loved the lodge.  Also enjoyed both the Peace Lodge and our stay at El Silencio Del Campo in Arenal.  Wasn't quite as impressed with the Heliconia in Monte Verde but it was OK.  Just wanted to let you know in case other people enquire..... We were not happy with the Suerre Hotel.  I know that was not your recommendation, we had been referred there by friends.  Not sure if it has changed hands since they stayed, but pool and hot tub were not too clean, food was not very good, service for food and bar was very slow and we had trouble finding someone who could speak even limited English.  I pass this info onto you only in case you want to give our feedback to that hotel, or in case someone like us comes along asking you to set them up there.  Thank you very much for all your work in making this a great vacation.  PS.... one of our transportation guides (Fernando?) was fabulous..... We had him on two long legs of the trip and he gave us a magnificent history of Costa Rica.

Hi Grettel, 
I just wanted to send you a very big thank you for all of your planning and care. Our family's trip to Costa Rica was absolutely wonderful and all of the tours were enjoyable and 'as expected'. I want to single out Sunset Tours and their professionalism. From the drivers to the guides, they exemplify excellence.

Many thanks and we look forward to another Costa Rican adventure

Pablo, thank you so much for arranging the beautiful Costa Rican Adventure trip for Denise and me.  Given the very short time frame, you did an outstanding job!  We loved the Hotel Arenal Paraiso (got one of the cottages at the top of the hill).  Hotel Heliconia was beautiful with its chalet like qualities.  All of the tours were informative and fun..... We found Costa Ricans are sophisticated, friendly, and truly love their country.  We will definitely be back!

Just some things that you might want to adjust:

 

Hotel Don Carlos was beautiful and we enjoyed viewing all the beautiful artwork.  Best margaritas in town!

All the tours/guides were outstanding..... One of the best was our guide in LaFortuna/volcano hike ... Walter Steller.... we travel all over the world and he was the absolute best..... Knowledgeable, kind, articulate, and totally committed to making the tours enjoyable.  Please give him our best! Next time we visit, we will ask you to get us Walter for his touring acumen.

Last day we were just too tired to do the last day's activities..... Didn’t use that tour voucher.  But, that just makes it necessary for us to return to do the canopy!

Again, thanks so much and I will definitely recommend you and your services to anyone wishing to travel to Costa Rica.  If you would like a letter of recommendation, please let me know.

Hi Grettel!  

Pura Vida!  Arriba!  Muchas gracias, MS Grettel

Thank you for putting together a wonderful trip!
Everything that you arranged came together like clock
work!  There were no major incidents or breakdowns in
your arrangements.  I complement you and your network
of contacts in the tourism business.  Awesome!  Things
just kept getting better and better as we went
along....the trip was exactly what I wanted and more!
Thank you for changing from the "free day" to the
additional canopy tour! 

I/we are very impressed with Costa Rica, its
wonderful people, great food, cheerful people who
work in the tourism business and of course, the
amazing country!  My 23 year old grandson who
accompanied me was in awe and had a grand time...he is
single, and so I teased him that this was a "honeymoon recon"....all he needs now is that one special lady!

Please pass on these comments to your company leaders;
you deserve a raise!

One question:  were there any gratuities included in
the overall price of the trip package?  Just curious.

Also, please advise you clients against bringing
Travelers’ checks....the local merchants and
businesses won't take them and you have to go to a
bank to get them cashed...at times that can be a time
consuming process....cash and a credit, or a debit
card is all you need.

The trip to Tortuguero was probably not
necessary...though the resort is very beautiful,
takes a long time to get in and out of there.  We spent
Only about 18 hours there...we did get out and go
fishing at 5:00 A.M. and as luck would have it we did
not have to clean any fish!  No luck!  $110.00 for an
early a. m. 2 hour  boat ride....

Thanks for putting us up at the Don Carlos Hotel.  It
is off the main track and is quiet at night...close to
Café Mundo great meals and fine wine...

Again, thanks for a great trip and a wonderful
experience.

Sincerely,
Amos Clemmons

Dear Pablo,
We had a wonderful trip. All of our guides were great. The Tortuga Island Tour was beautiful. We also zip lined through the rain forest, what a blast. Thank you so much for all of your help with planning this trip. My friends and I will be talking of this trip for years to come. P.S. We love Costa Rica and all of its wonderful colors and flavors of life. You are all very blessed. We might like to stay away from the main hub of the city more next time. But we will recommend your company to our friends. Thank you once again.

Grettel,
Thank you so much for the great trip to Costa Rica. The coordination of detail was amazing. We were able to enjoy all the wonderful sites and activities of Costa Rica without any of the common travel worries.

I meant to send this earlier. Yesterday, I recommended your company to another friend, which reminded me to send this.

You may remember us...three people on the 10-day adventure packaged that we turned into a 12 day---which BTW was well worth it. The extra day in Arenal and Tortuguero made for a nice pace to the trip. While in Arenal we did the canyoning tour---awesome!

Thanks again,
Jean

Dear Grettel,
We returned home last night after 10 wonderful days in Costa Rica, and
I want to thank you for putting together an excellent itinerary. The
hotels, the drivers and the tours were first rate.  We really
appreciated the work you did in preparing the trip.
Two minor shortcomings:  Though the people at Casa Camarona were
helpful, the Hotel itself has seen better days. And the Interbus that
picked us up at Casa Camarona did not take us to our hotel--Casa de las
Tias, but left us at a hotel in San Jose where we had to get a taxi.
Again, our  thanks  for a great experience.

Hello Grettel
Just wanted to send a note to you to say a big thank you for organizing a wonderful trip for us over March Break.  Even though we were only away for a week, we all felt like we'd been gone for a month.  The variety of activities and locations made every day unique and we were all sad when it came to an end.  However, we are sure to visit again in the future, and will be happy to use your services once more.
Yours truly

Grettel,

Your service was excellent and everything you set up for us was wonderful. Our experience at the Pacuare Lodge, including the whitewater rafting, beautiful accommodations, great food, attentive staff (our guide Andres was a treat), was one of the best vacation experiences we have ever had. Also, your selection of the Hotel Grano de Oro was perfect. My wife thought that her dinners there were the best meals she has ever had anywhere.

We had such a good time we will definitely book a return trip in the next year or two.

Thanks again.
