Costa Rica Rainforest Trip Reviews

"I just returned from my very first U30X Costa Rica Rainforest trip last week and don't even know how to put into words how incredibly perfect the experience was. First of all, our tour leaders Haylie and Adrian were beyond amazing. They were so passionate about U30X and sharing Costa Rica with us and it showed through in everything they did. From the moment we all met in the airport cafe they were on top of every detail to and went above and beyond to ensure we were all relaxed, carefree, and having fun. Not only were they amazing tour guides but also quickly became new friends to everyone in the group. All of the activities and accommodations on the trip were very nice and we got a very real, authentic Costa Rican pura vida experience. I cannot recommend this company, trip, and tour leaders enough and already planning my next U30X adventure!!" -Lauren D.

"If you are considering booking a U30X trip and haven't pulled the trigger yet, two words: DO IT! I just got back from the Costa Rica Rainforest trip and the best word I can find to describe it is 'magical.' Not only were the accommodations and excursions beyond beautiful and amazing, but our guide Adrian made it to where we felt like locals and got to really live and feel the tiko ways! I knew no one going into this trip and could not have been matched up with a better group of people. The entire trip was flexible and you could decide to do things on your own or join in on awesome activities. Adrian was the absolute best and I feel like we were the luckiest group to have him show us around and teach us the pura vida lifestyle!" -Dana M.

Brandi here again. Home from ANOTHER killer trip! This time, I ventured to the Costa Rican Rain Forest with Lauren and Luis. If you haven't signed up for an adventure with these guys yet, what are you waiting for? Seriously, who doesn't want to chase water falls, go shooting down a river, zip line through the rain forest, get some salsa lessons and yoga twice a day? Oh yea, and meet interesting people along the way that will open your brain up to new ways of thinking and being? Do yourself a favor, and sign up. Change your life, stop reading this review and go explore." -Brandi U.
