Traveling to Costa Rica with TVP was unlike any travel experience I have had before October 2017

Traveling to Costa Rica with TVP was unlike any travel experience I have had before. Prior to the TVP trip in September, I had never been to Costa Rica or been part of a tour. I admittedly did not know what to expect giving up control of planning my trip, but could not have asked for a better experience. Every detail was expertly chosen, from the intimate welcome dinner giving the group time to meet one another, to the downtime built into volunteer days and ending with a relaxing day at the beach. Being part of this tour gave me the opportunity to see a side to Costa Rica I had no idea existed based on friends previous travel accounts. Participating in a beach clean up of an uninhabited beach and realizing how much trash washes up from ocean pollution was eye opening. Rescuing baby sea turtles the next day reinforced how important it is to keep our oceans and beaches clean. I cannot wait to be a part of future TVP trips!! Read more

The most unique and meaningful trip I can remember going on. I can't emphasize the authenticity of the experience enough. Our guide was incredible and introduced us to amazing people - artists, musicians, chefs and entrepreneurs. The work we did was impactful and left a lasting impression on me. The food was great and our trip organizers ensured we were having fun at all points. I was surrounded by amazing people and the more I talk about the trip with others, the greater the appreciation I have for the experience TVP cultivated for me. Read more

Have you ever felt like the country you're visiting surprises you every day? I have and it was thanks to The Vacation Project! I had been to Costa Rica about seven times before but I had NEVER experienced the country the way I did last week. From the welcoming city tour to the last glass of wine at our goodbye dinner, every detail and every personality in the group was accounted for. My favorite part was visiting the Costa Rican rain forest, walking through the jungle and seeing sea turtles nesting under the gaze of the full moon. I made new friends and long lasting memories while re-discovering a country very close and near to my heart. I hope that millions of people get to experience what I experienced on this trip, as I have come back renewed and aware of my place in nature and the world... also the food was amazing ! Read more

Our safari was amazing. The crew of Alaitol Safaris were very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. They thought of and provided for every little detail . The food and the accommodations were incredible. Our group had also beach holiday with this company.
Both experiences were ones I will never forget in my lifetime. I highly recommend this company for your African travels, treks, safaris and Zanzibar beach holiday. You will not be disappointed and every trip that you take after this venture will fall short in comparison.

Our Paradise Islands tour was a superb opportunity to see Belize up close and personal. We were blessed with a small group (3 guests and 1 guide), great weather, easy waters for kayaking and snorkelling. We started in Tobacco Caye Paradise Lodge where Mr Ed and his staff took great care of us with fabulous local food, comfortable cabanas built over the reef so we could sit out on our back deck and watch the rays and fish hover about. Kimike, our guide, had us out kayaking the first afternoon along the barrier reef where we saw large eagle rays and an osprey flying off with a parrot fish in its talons. We paddled over to Tobacco Caye Range, a large mangrove forest, about 2.5 Km away where we encountered cormorants, pelicans by the score, southern rays and ospreys. After Tobacco Caye, we paddle/sailed our kayaks down to South Water Caye and stayed with International Zoological Expeditions where our cabana was situated adjacent to the eastern mangrove forest on the Caye. From our deck we could watch herons carefully hunting for small crabs and lizards. Once again, the staff cooked excellent local meals and are very friendly. We snorkelled off the beach using our kayaks and also paddled over to Carrie Bow Caye where the Smithsonian Institute has a research facility. The managers gave us a tour of the operations and were very informative. Kimike had us paddleboarding that afternoon, teaching us the basics as he demonstrated his skill at yoga on the water! Our last day involved a long paddle down to Billyhawk Caye, weaving in and out of a large mangrove range on the way down, disturbing huge southern rays as we glided over their hollows, listening to ospreys call from their perches and enjoying a great lunch of conch stew, salad and rice at Billyhawk Caye. We gathered our possessions and said goodbye to the kayaks. Our last snorkel was in the reefs near the Bread and Butter Islands, just south of the Caye. The size and variety of the soft coral was astounding along with a profusion of brightly colored fish of all types.
Why did you choose to travel with Island Expeditions?:
We had a great time last year at Lighthouse Reef on Half Moon Caye and had no qualms about signing up again for a trip to Belize with Island Expeditions. This year we added extra time at Bocawina, Glover's Atoll and Pook's Hill with the IE staff arranging and booking rooms, transfers, local flights.

What was the highlight of your trip?:
We really enjoyed the kayaking and snorkelling off of Carrie Bow Caye where Joan had a chance to swim alongside a huge eagle ray. Night time snorkelling for the first time, where we saw an octopus, rays, channel crabs and conchs. Learning about coconut milk and Belizean rum in combination was delightful!

What would be your advice to potential travellers?:
Be prepared to travel light as all your baggage is going into dry bags and stowed in the kayaks. IE staff will look after your larger baggage in the office while you are out on the water. Bring long sleeved synthetic T shirts and tights for paddling and kayaking to protect against the sun and reduce your need for sunscreen. An infinity scarf can also cover your face and scalp while snorkelling.
