Totally happy with my G-experiences so far April 2015


Costa Rica Family Experience

I had a great time with my daughter on GAdventure Trip to Costa Rica. We loved every minute of it. With a lot of animal sighting and activity packed, this trip was a blast.

Most Memorable Moment February 2018


The Panama Canal & Costa Rica - Eastbound 2018

San Jose, Costa Rica, where we began our trip, is at nearly 4000 ft, cool and surrounded by mountains. Panama City, where we ended is at sea level and hot with a modern skyline making for a huge change in climate and atmosphere. We began at a coffee plantation in the mountains and ended on a ship in the impressive Panama Canal. Wow what a contrast.

Most Memorable Moment:

Transiting the Panama Canal and also spending some time in a small boat on the canal. The boat took us into one of the many "inlets" of the canal created by the flooding of the Chagres river when the canal was built. The surroundings have been left as a jungle where we saw monkeys, a large crocodile and a number of birds. Totally unexpected.

Costa Rica Eco Adventure end San Jose January 2017


Costa Rica Eco Adventure End San Jose Summer 2018

For us the itinerary was more fitting for younger people. I'm 79 and my wife is 9 years younger. She has great difficulty walking.

Your itinerary was fine.
