Costa Rica Traverse

I have postponed sending this letter until now so as to be uninfluenced by post-trip emotions, as it were. But even 9 months on, I still cannot help but praise this expedition. It was a wonderful mixture of guides & people. The grade was enough to focus you on the task in hand, and to get a real feeling & respect for the land. The kindness & generosity displayed by ALL of the WE representatives on the trip all complimented the experience, turning it away from a regular organised expedition and into something more - something that has fed and quickened soul - and for adventure. Thank you.

At night stay in character-filled family run hotels where your hosts will introduce you to the delights of their local sites and trattorias.
