Belize trip, Ron L (from USA) - March 20, 2006
Mauricio, The flights were perfect and I really enjoyed how they made it so easy to find and everyone at the airline was friendly and helpful. The hotel was ok. I am not saying it was bad, and I’ve stayed at much worse. I was expecting a less noising room. but other than that, it was nice.
The restaurant was very nice and all of the staff was really good. Now that I know where to stay, I think I would stay at either the Sunbreeze, Ramon’s, or Victoria House. If you ever get a good deal on any of those, please let me know. I’ve never fished and had so much fun, I am definitely coming back. It’s just a matter of when, not if. I really appreciate your help, it made if very easy to simply hand them vouchers for both the flights and the hotel.
My friends didn’t have those and it took longer for them to deal with both the airlines and the hotel. So, when I go back, I’ll recommend you to everyone who will be traveling. Thanks. Ron C. Lord Mid-Western Regional Manager IAPMO
Argentina trip, Shaul B (from USA) - March 20, 2006
I would like to thank you for well organized trip. Our stay in Iguazu was great.
I want especially to thank Larisa for keeping us updated about the airline strike.
Ecuador trip, Jo H (from Canada) - March 18, 2006
Laura, First of all, thank you so much for arranging our time in the Galapagos. It was definitely an amazing time, and one that I will never forget! The ship was fun, and the staff excellent.
Hot though, thank goodness for the air conditioning on the boat! I was able to do one dive on the boat, there seemed to be a little confusion as to the diving. They were unable to schedule me for a second dive, due to the air compressor on the Spondylus not working.
They advised that I contact you when I got home in order to receive a refund for the second dive. If you could organize this it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much once again,
Peru trip, Kathy L (from USA) - March 17, 2006
Dan, Thank you so much for handling our trip so efficiently at the last minute. We had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect. There were just a couple of comments we must make. There just wasn''t enough time in Cusco to enjoy the Monastery hotel (which appeared to be wonderful, our room was beautiful) we got in so late that night from Agua Caliente and our driver from the train to Cusco the last night was unsafe. Other than that it was, as I said before, perfect. Everyone was friendly and helpful. All the tour guides were knowledgeable and helpful also. We will be contacting you again in the future for another trip to Peru/Chile/Argentina. Thanks again, Kathy I.
Costa Rica trip, Shannon D (from USA) - March 16, 2006
The car and Adobe were great, very kind and professional. Thank you very much, I will definitely recommend you to friends. Costa Rica is muy bonita, we had a great time!Take care, Shannon Doyle.
Costa Rica trip, James A (from USA) - March 16, 2006
As usual we had great service at an affordable price. The staff was friendly and helpful and Sandra Benevides was extremely prompt with the reservation. We have used her services for the past 5 years and are very satisfied. We will continue to do business with Sandra in the future and will recommend Sandra and Latin Discover to our friends when they travel.
Peru trip, Jean Francois Poupinel (from France) - March 13, 2006
We are now back home and enthusiastic about our visit to Peru. Everything was perfectly organized. Transportation was fine and always on time. All the hotels were nice and well located (except El Cabildo en Arequipa, which is a little far from the city center) We were lucky with the weather, except in Machu Picchu where we had a lot of rain and clouds. Perhaps should you warn your customers that this is the rainy season and that bad weather is very likely there...But we could manage to have some sun in late afternoon, and we really appreciated the Sanctuary lodge. Thank you for everything Dan, we will recommend you to our friends. Jean Francois
Costa Rica trip, Tamara Martin (from USA) - March 13, 2006
Mauricio. I meant to email you but ironically I have been too busy at work since I got back. The vacation was excellent and very relaxing. Everything turned out very well. We absolutely loved Punta Islita. The only thing I would have changed was the coffee tour. Otherwise, it was an excellent vacation and we were very happy with the service we received. Thank you for all your help and planning. It made our experience all that more enjoyable and relaxing. Regards, Tamara .
Chile trip, Vernon Steger (from USA) - March 10, 2006
Laura, Vern & I are home from our 24 day trip to Chile. You provided services in Patagonia that were all very good. The room at Lago Grey was especially memorable as it had a picture window that looked out to the lake and glacier. Photography was of special interest to Vern and he was able to get sunrises and sunsets from our room. When in Punta Arenas, we went to Isla Magdelena to see the penguins. It was wonderful. There were far more than expected and we were able to get very close to them. We thank you for youe service and if we travel to the area again we will certainly contact you. When we get our pictures organized, we will send you an e-mail picture of our view from Lago Grey. Thanks again, Verna
Ecuador trip, Kathleen McCue (from USA) - March 7, 2006
Laura, Well, we are back, and had a wonderful time! Everything went without a single problem! We were met everywhere we went, and everything happened in a timely manner and was what we expected.
The boat, Archipel, is wonderful and quite comfortable and spacious. It was very easy for my mom to manage, and the crew went out of their way to make her safe and comfortable. We saw all the things we hadn't seen before; hawks and penguins, manta rays and eagle rays and white-tipped sharks. The diving worked out great, and was very easy on this boat. They coordinated it very well, and even with the diving, we really didn't miss much of anything.
We did the horseback riding in Isabella, and also did riding on that last day on Santa Cruz, and it was so fun! We rode past dozens of tortoises in the wild! Casa de Marita was relaxed and beautiful, and everything was very well arranged. Our time with Maria and Luis at Hotel Fernandina was like a reunion. They are upgrading their hotel, adding new rooms on a second floor, and getting ready to redo all their original rooms. They made us feel so welcome.
All of our guides were good, but we had a young woman named Josie on Santa Cruz for the two days there who was outstanding! So knowledgeable and attentive for a 21 year old person! If you ever have the chance to ask for her specifically, do so! Thank you, Laura, for all your work in making these plans. Between you and Galacruises, things went perfectly! We finally did have the trip of a lifetime! Now, where shall we go next??
Costa Rica trip, Sandy T (from USA) - March 6, 2006
Mauricio, Gary located your website by using google as a search engine. He had checked a local travel agent to book an all inclusive trip as we do every year, but after researching the internet, found the open voucher and decided to try this.
You have been so kind to reply and inform us on everything, we hope to do this every year with your company. The following helped us make the decision. 1. Easy to read webpage 2. Choices of hotels 3. Price per couple Thanks, Sandy T.
Argentina trip, Brent Gibbs (from Canada) - February 24, 2006
Laura, thank you for following up on our bookings through your company. All services in Argentina were very good, they were right on time and went out of their way to assist us. They were quite flexable when we had to change our airport transfer times.The Sheraton Hotel in Iguazu was fine although it was a little awkward that their dining room would not take reservations so it was first come first served, once full it was quite a wait at times for a table. All service staff we dealt with in Argentina were wonderful and very helpful and your companies information package and electronic itinerary were great. We would recommend your company to others (although with the use of a different airline whenever possible). Brent, Canada
Costa Rica trip, Brian McNamara (from UK) - February 22, 2006
Mauricio, we had a wondeful trip to Costa Rica & I would have no hesitation in recommending your country to friends as well as your services. I would also like to say that all the organisation was very good - right from the time we arrived at San Jose airport. Interbus was there to collect us & at the hotel we received a fax from Mawamba giving us pick up details.
They were also very good at ensuring that the car was there when they dropped us off to collect it. All the hotels were very good & your recommendations were great. The service was good & people very friendly. The roads perhaps weren't great but that is all part of the experience - don't improve them!!! My only suggestion might be that at Arenal a hotel on the National Park side would possibly give a better view of the volcano & all its activities but that is not to detract from Arenal Paraiso which we thoroughly enjoyed especially as they have their own hot springs - which means you don't have to go to the crowded ones.
All in all a very good trip .The organisation certainly helped & it made it much easier as all the instructions were easy to follow so no "panic" calls had to be made. It was also useful to know there was a point of contact should there have been any problems - which thankfully there weren't. Once again very many thanks for all your help in organising a wonderful holidays for us. Best wishes & hopefully we will be in touch in the not too distant future. Brian.

Costa Rica trip, Ian H (from UK) - February 22, 2006

I am sure that you will be helping us to make arrangements for our future visits to South and Central America........in the not so distant future! kind regards, Carole & Ian H.
