My wife and I both being in our seventies thought we would look at Saga Holidays as we liked the idea of the inclusive pickup from home and return home after the holiday. We had a chaufer driven car for both journeys and the drivers were most helpful even offering to stop at a locaI shop on the way home to pick a few groceries and some milk. As we are both lovers of wildlife and birdwatching we decided to go on their all inclusive escorted tour of costa rica. Our luggage was looked after throughout the holiday apart from the change of planes at Miami. After being picked up at San Hose airport in Costa rica we were taken to our hotel and stayed for two days in the capital before going on to the first of two other hotels for five days and then the second hotel for the remainder of our holiday. The tour guide who was with us for the duration of our holiday was most helpful and showed real consideration for the 21 travellers in our group. Both he and the coach driver had a great knowledge of all the local wildlife and we were kept enthralled by the variety of birds, animals and vegetation which were pointed out as we toured the countryside. All the hotels were of a good quality and the standard and variety and could not be faulted. There were trips out from the hotels every day and although being silver travellers some trips were quite tireing we were always shown consideration on these trips. There were also river excursions, zip wires, aerial sky trams, hanging bridges and a visit to the lava trails and hot springs of an active volcano. An added bonus was that most of us on the holiday were of a similar age with similar interests which made this holdy so special. Also with the holiday being all inclusive including drinks for 12 hours each day we brought back most of the US dollars we had taken with us . There is so much more I could tell you about this holiday but suggest you try it yourself. You will not be disappointed.

    Central America has so much to offer everyone. We love it. Like you we've enjoyed zip wiring, walking in the jungles, swimming in the blue sea, exploring Mayan ruins! Incredible.
