Country and property tours
The first review was from our Costa Rica/Panama tour:
My partner Judy and I took the 10 day Costa Rica to Panama tour with Steve in January of 2020. What a wonderful time we had. This is small group touring with just 11 of us. It has set a high bar for expectations of future tours. We started out with a couple of nights in a great little resort hotel just outside of San Jose. The time here was spent exploring the area including a morning in a national park in the cloud forest and dinner at a fun local family restaurant serving authentic Tican food. From here we went out to the Pacific coast and headed south. Our stops were at little off-the-beaten-path family run shops and restaurants with days of exploring the sites. the sites chosen were amazing. The stop at Manuel Antonio was a day of playing in the ocean and meeting the local monkeys. Every day was something new. From the southern zone in Costa Rica we crossed the border into Panama. One of the highlights here was the mountain town of Boquette. There was a flower festival going on at the time and it was the highlight of the day. Everywhere we stopped there was a time spent with Steve getting oriented and then let off on our own to explore. Panama City at the end of the tour was a treat. Everywhere we went we met happy, welcoming people. Steve has a great way about him. He made the tour informative and entertaining. We learned enough with Steve to feel comfortable spending another six weeks exploring first Panama and then back to Costa Rica. We look forward to our next tour with Steve which we are planning for now.
