Costa Rica trip, Patricia Birchley (from UK) - February 20, 2006
Mauricio, Many thanks for your email. The Grano de Oro was great on each occasion, the Britannia good with helpful staff. Si Como No was fine when we had a better situated bedroom and the swimming in the sea at Manuel Antonio as fabulous.
We liked that area a lot. We had an excellent to Tortuguero, but for some rain. All in all, it was a fantastic holiday with 4 really good days in Houston at the end. We're very grateful to you for your excellent itinerary, hire of the vehicle and general arrangements.
Perhaps we tried to drive too far bearing in mind the condition of the roads. Hope this is helpful Mauricio, Warmest wishes, Tricia
Belize trip, Gabriela M (from USA) - February 16, 2006
Mauricio, We had a good time in San Pedro. Banana Beach Resort was nice, spacious and clean. We both loved very casual atmosphere in the hotel and in town as well. We had breakfast included as well and it was excellent (every day something different, and if one couldn't eat breakfast it could be exchanged for a drink at the bar). Even weather improved after second day and stayed very nice until the last day, so we were very lucky.
Janusz did some diving, I did snorkeling on a reef. Thanks for arranging everything, we were met in Belize City by your representative and transfers were handled very well, so you have a satisfied customer. Keep in touch, Gabriela

Costa Rica trip, John Seddon (from UK) - February 15, 2006
Mauricio, We had a great time and were very grateful for the generous upgrade . The Mitsubishi Montero Sport was ideal for our trip and didnt give us a moments problem. We were a little worried when no one came to collect the car key after I had rung Adobe from the Melia Cariari but it all worked out fine in the end. Thanks again, John S.
Belize trip, Kathleen B (from USA) - February 13, 2006
Mauricio, Yes, I had a wonderful stay at Ramon's Village. The accommodations were perfect and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. I can't think of anything I would change. Thank you for your assistance in making my stay a most pleasant one. Sincerely, Kathleen
Ecuador trip, Bill Danaher (from Australia) - February 8, 2006
Laura, We have now been back from our Galapagos tour for a while, but its certainly not a distant memory. It was a wonderful holiday, truly unique, and made special by all at Klein Tours and on the Legend. Everything went smoothly from our arrival at Quito airport until our return.,We will be traveling again. I am personally keen to visit Antarctica, but I am not sure that would be done as a family tour. I suspect that those expeditions are not designed for children. Our other target destination is Cuba, do you offer any options there? Again thanks for your help. All the best, Bill D.
Costa Rica trip, Bay T (from USA) - January 31, 2006
Mauricio, It's taking a while to settle myself back to work. The trip was great. I was very impressed by how smooth our transportations were. We were picked up on time and all of the activities went well without any hiccups. The hotels exceeded our expectations.
We fell in love with the Pacuare Lodge. The hotel is very charming. I love the bathroom with screen windows that let me see the view of the river and the forest outside. The staff there were amazing and the food was spectacular. We also love Selva Verde Lodge. There was a minor mishap here when they first put us in a very old room with no A/C, and a cockroach. We asked to move and we got to stay in a new bungalow.
Though a bit further away, it was very nice in the midst of the rain forest. I wish we could have stayed there another day (Monteverde) so we could go visit the biological preserve. Overall, we had a great time and we want to go back to Costa Rica again.
We definitely want to do Aventuras Naturales trips again. Thank you very much for being helpful and informative throughout the booking process. Best, Bay
Costa Rica trip, Nancy J (from USA) - January 26, 2006
Thank you for your services and introducing us to Paypal. Our trip was amazing. We stayed in the Monteverde region and then traveled by bus and boat to LaFortuna. The accommodations at the Adrenal Parisio were excellent. We arranged Horse back riding and the Canopy tour plus the hot springs all from the hotel. Our trip to San Jose and the stay at the Boutique Jade was great. We ate all our meals at the Jorgen Restaurant because it was so delicious.
Thank you again for your services.

Costa Rica trip, Bruce Eagle (from USA) - January 23, 2006
We are very grateful four your help in getting us the hotel room until we could solve our financial problems. We also appreciated your suggestion to get to the embassy early. Even though we were able to go directly in and not wait in the visa line, by getting there early we got ahead of the several dozen other American citizens that showed up after us. Even so, if we hadn't figured out that one of Bruce's credit cards was still good, we could of really had problems since Costa Rica doesn't accept passwords or US driver's licenses to get wire money transfers, only passports, and without the money, we couldn't get new passports. We would like to send you a token of appreciation. What is your mailing address? I'll add a few words, Adobe is fantastic to work with. Zancudo was great, I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have very laidback time, great fishing and many nature type things to see. The nightlife however is not so good. Some of the place's we liked were Latitude 8, Sportfishing Unlimited and Los Cocas. Thanks again for all the help.
Ecuador trip, Brett M (from USA) - January 23, 2006
The cruise was fantastic-- I saw nearly every species I had hoped for (including hammerhead sharks, a short-eared owl, and penguins). The Encantada and crew were great, as were the other travelers onboard. Thanks again for your help!
Ecuador trip, Helen Whyment (from UK) - January 23, 2006
Sandra, We had a fantastic trip and the majority of our plans worked out well. We enjoyed our time at Casa Marita on Isabella Island where we celebrated the New year with the owner and other guests. it was a multi national gathering and we were treated like members of the family.
We were given a New Year meal and the wine flowed freely! Our flight to Santa Cruz on the 5 seater plane was interesting! and I am still amazed that I had the courage to get on board. We were met at the airport by our guide for the Beagle yacht cruise.
The yacht was beautiful and we had a marvellous itinerary and an amazing guide- Balantina. her English was excellent and her knowledge of natural history and facts regarding the islands and the wildlife was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the snorkelling and kayaking.
The 3rd part of our trip was at the Finch Bay Hotel in Puerto Ayora. This is an amazing place to escape and unwind. The hotel was clean and the staff worked under the motto"everything is possible". The atmosphere was very laid back and relaxed. There was no TV, no traffic noise and very few children -all in all an ideal place to stay and we can highly recommend this hotel to your clients and our friends.
Thank You for all the organising at your end. The trip was excellent and we had a very very good holiday. I will try and send you a few photos. Look forward to your reply Helen
