  1. Costa Rica is the best!!

    I loved learning about the culture of Costa Rica. My favorite experiences were Zip lining, white water rafting, snorkeling and kayaking. Visiting a pineapple plantation has changed how I will pick out pineapples for the rest of my life. I was amazed at how cocoa was made. I enjoyed visiting the country's National parks, being able to see mud bubble, smell the sulfur from the steam of a volcano and being able to feel the strong currents from a water fall. To be able to relax in the hot springs from a volcano was divine.
    The best part of EF tours is having others plan and deal with all of the logistics of a life changing trip. The people of Costa Rica are kind and helpful.
    Thank you

  2. Amazing Trip!

    I have traveled with EF many times. Each time it gets better! This year Costa Rica was so cool because all of my high school friends came as well. The hikes through The National Greats all around Arenal and Poas were amazing. The kayaking race across the lake, and the zip lines were highlights. River rafting was exciting along with all the animals, reptiles a bird's we saw the whole trip. Amazing canals near Tortuguero with Caymans, sloths, and Howler Monkeys. Our hotels were authentic, and loved all of the food especially the pineapple! Now we know how to pick and cut a pineapple! A life changing trip for me and my friends.

  3. Adventure is out there!

    This tour was full of excitement and adventure. Throughout the whole tour we were surrounded by beautiful green rainforest and plenty of opportunities for adventure. The adventure part was very flexible and allowed people to choose to participate or not. We had a wide variety of ages on our tour so it was a very adaptable for everyone. Our tour guide was amazing and had tons of connections that allowed us to see things off the beaten path.

  4. AMAZING - Best time of my life

    This was my first tour with EF and all I have to say is WOW!!! Costa Rica was absolutely beautiful and everyone is so nice and welcoming. Our tour guide was amazing and all of the students absolutely loved him. All of the adventures that we did were so fun...some included Kayaking, white river rafting, hiking to a waterfall and taking a boat through a river with crocodiles...oh and we got to spend 2 hours at the hot springs!!! The food was really good and I liked that we got to travel to 5 different places. The wild life was pretty cool...animals that we see in zoos in America are free in the wild in Costa Rica!!! Very clean Country!!! I highly recommend this tour.

  5. Captivating Costa Rica

    Touring Costa Rica with EF was the experience of a lifetime. Every adventure was an incredible opportunity. Seeing the many different parts of the country and being fully immersed in pure culture is an unforgettable thing. From the biodiverse wildlife to natural wonders to mouthwatering local cuisine, every moment of the journey was breathtaking. If given the chance to travel anywhere at all, take it.

  6. Fantastic!

    I am so happy that we all had this amazing experience. Got to witness so may things that I would never have before dreamed of, like witnessing a Leatherback Turtle lay her eggs on the beach in the middle of the night in Tortuguero! Thank you so much to our tour guide who did an amazing job showing us all the different aspects of Costa Rican life, and to our wonderful bus driver who made sure we got to our destinations safely :) I would absolutely recommend this tour to a friend, it was an incredible experience and I'm sure the memories will always be cherished.

  8. A growth experience for sure...

    My daughter travelled to Costa Rica with EF Tours and absolutely had a wonderful time. The tour was very well organized and provided a jam-packed itinerary of fun and educational outings. My daughter came home with a zest for further travel and a new maturity about herself. A very great experience for her in every way.

  9. Not happy

    Disappointed in the tour. The lodgings were sub par - one hotel and no hot water, a leak in the ceiling, cement floors, etc. not even a two star. For the money spent I would expect better. Also the activities were boring except for 2. Also tour guides inappropriate and got fired so no beach as a result. Also too much toile spent on travel and horrible flight times.

  10. great trip

    We had a great trip. Fun was had by all. Was very interesting. Main Suggestion that we had was some kind of entertainment/games/etc after dinner so those who need wind down time have it (for some 8 is an early bed time even with a packed day)
