Costa Rica Traverse

it was the most amazing trip I've ever done. Danny our guide was phenomenal - his ability to keep us upbeat and motivated and telling us information on a need to know basis was fantastic - I wish he could be our guide on every trip I do in the future! The rest of his team was also fantastic - the logistics behind the trip were critical but totally seamless as we trudged through the rainforest and up vertical mud slopes in the rain.
It really was a challenge and I was nervous about my levels of fitness but I realise now that I'm fitter than I thought I was - long may I continue to keep the fitness up although last week I took it easy.

Thanks again to WE for their excellent advice to do this trip - I'm so happy I did and have met some great people as a result!

A central focus of the tour is in Cordoba city, with its unique mosque cathedral, the castle with its magnificent water gardens, the Caliphal baths, the picturesque Jewish quarter and the patios.
