Latest Reviews What our clients are saying about their journeys through Central America

Family trip to Costa Rica   , United Kingdom, Dec 2021
All good, everyone had a great time and the whole package was great. One minor comment, and perhaps this is actually about Costa Rica itself, but none of the places we ate at seemed to do much in the way of kids portions. So, we seemed to waste a lot of food!
Thank you Contiki!   , New York City, United States, Sep 2021
From start to finish, my trip was a life changing experience. Other than the fact that I was accompanied with such a great group of people, that only Contiki could unite together, my tour guide and our driver - Olivier and Santos- were exceptional! Both extremely caring, funny, and welcoming- they made the trip what it was. Contiki put a great array ...read more of activities together for us and I do feel like I really got to know Costa Rica on a more personal level, rather than just going to a touristy spot and saying “oh yeah I’ve been”. Whether we were dining with locals or planting trees with them, or having small talk on the catamaran, this was a once in a life time experience and I owe it all to Contiki!
Must do trip!   , Orlando, Florida, United States, Sep 2021
The Viva Costa Rica is amazing. It starts out fairly fast-paced then slows down at the end. Our trip manager Oli was fantastic he went above and beyond at all times. Our driver Santos was very professional and fun. He kept us safe and would always go the extra mile for us. Most of the free time add on’s are worth it. The only one that may not be worth ...read more it is the kayaking. Everything else is once in lifetime opportunities. I felt that the included meals were very good as well. They were authentic to the country. There were several local interactions as well. The only downside to the trip is some of the hotels. There were a lot of bugs in the hotel rooms. I expected some because of the destination but there were more than I thought acceptable.
Turtle Trek - Must Do!   , Orlando, Florida, United States, Sep 2021
Turtle Trek is a fun add on to Viva Costa Rica. I was very happy I did it. I thought it was a great way to end the trip. The jungle lodge that we stay at is amazing. Seeing the sea turtles laying their eggs is such a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience. The downside is that you are just added to another tour companies group. All the travelers from ...read more Contiki do everything together which is good.
