Postcard from Costa Rica

We’re thrilled to be sharing another postcard from a trip we arranged for Zaria and her family to Costa Rica:

“Irene planned the PERFECT trip for my father and I! We had the perfect mixture of adventure and relaxation, jungle and beach. My family has traveled extensively all over the world, and our trip to Costa Rica was certainly one of the very best.

We stayed at Finca Rosa Blanca in their GORGEOUS master suite, overlooking their organic coffee plantation. We went to Arenal and stayed at Kioro Hotel, enjoyed their wonderful spa, hot springs, an insanely gorgeous and CLOSE view of the volcano, zip-lining, hanging bridges, and horseback riding to a beautiful waterfall. We had a wonderful, intelligent, sweet guide named Donald for our 3 days there.

We then drove down to Nosara and spent a week at the Harmony Hotel which I could not praise enough… Irene was spot-on with all locations and hotels.. and was extremely helpful in the planning process. Always efficient and attentive to emails, and always making herself available for questions/concerns. Thank you Irene!!!!”

Another lovely trip review we received from a guest visiting from Europe:

“Irene Edwards arranged a beautiful trip for me and a friend to the wonderful country of Costa Rica. Knowing a lot about the country herself, she made a program for us that combined nature and culture. She put a lot of effort in the realisation of our specific wishes and found the most wonderful and exciting places to stay. We enjoyed nature in the rainforest, spent a few nights in a hotel with a view of an active vulcano and enjoyed the wildlife in the peninsula. Thank you very much for that experience, Irene!”

A GreenSpot Honeymoon Review

We had the pleasure of planning a honeymoon for Perdue and her husband are thrilled to share this review with you!

“With all of that stress I had before the wedding , it was great to have Richard and Irene at GreenSpot.travel, there to do the hard work for me, and take a little worry out of one aspect of my life, my honeymoon. You checked in for us which was a life saver, since we would have had to check in sometime during our wedding! You surprised us with an upgrade to the Copa lounge area, and an upgrade to business class. With my husband being 6’6”, he definitely appreciated the extra leg room.

Our transportation and stay was worry free, with you having planned everything out for us. Our first night, even though we were coming in late, and leaving early and staying just the one night, you also upgraded out stay at Finca Rosa Blanca to the beautiful suite. What a great view to go to bed and wake up to. The place was beautiful and our breakfast there was delicious.

The hotel you chose for us at the cloud forest was very peaceful, and we enjoyed the cooler mountain air on our hikes, and the food there was spectacular as well, as good as any 5 start restaurant. The jungle eco-lodge we stayed at, was absolutely gorgeous, and the people were there to please. Every requests was met with a smile. The food was great, with great vegetarian options as well. We were able to catch a humpback whale and her calf, along with a pod of acrobatic dolphins, on our way out to snorkel. I was able to catch a glimpse of a shark and a sea turtle while snorkeling! It was really nice, our room was breathtaking, with its sunset view.

We arrived at the beach, and to the quaint little surf town, with great proximity to the beach. We walked to town to grab lunch, and to the beach to catch the sunset.

All in all we had a great honeymoon, and I am thankful for you for taking the worry out of my hands and planning it for me. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made in traveling. It was also great to travel to these “green” places, all with recycling right in your room, great local food that was fresh everyday, and a wonderful hospitality at every place we stayed. I would recommend GreenSpot.travel anytime, and thanks again!”



Family Postcard from Costa Rica

We are thrilled to share this review from Peter and his young family. If you’re thinking of bringing the whole gang on your GreenSpot vacation to Costa Rica, we can help plan family-friendly activities that everyone will enjoy.

“My wife and children (ages 7 and 5) just returned from an amazing Costa Rica adventure arranged by Irene Edwards. We arrived in Costa Rica at the very end of March and traveled to three different locations: Tortuguero (Tortuga Lodge), Drakes Bay (La Paloma), and Puerto Jimenez (Lapa Rios.)

Everything was arranged perfectly, and it seemed like every person be it driver, pilot, or hotel staff we came in contact with knew our next steps better then we did ourselves. The children went absolutely nuts over the wildlife we saw which included monkeys (all 4 Costa Rican species!) crocodiles, iguanas, macaws, toucans, coatis, just to name a few. The kids are ready to go back tomorrow and whenever we go, I’m sure we’ll be contacting Irene again.”
