WWF Escape to the Andes

We visited the Andean school which was built by World Expeditions and presented the children with books, pens, pencils etc which some of us had brought from Australia. The extra weight was worthwhile when we saw the expressions on the childrenís faces. I could never imagine children in Australia smiling so broadly at being given an exercise book and pen!

Costa Rica Family Adventure

Monteverde cloud forest boasts incredible biodiversity with 400 species of birds, 2500 species of plants, 120 species of amphibians and 100 species of mammals. With almost 3 kms of treetop walkways through primary cloud forest and 8 suspension bridges, our 2 days in the cloud forest is exhilarating. Walking n the treetop walkways of Monteverde is a truly unique way to view the forest and its inhabitants. We take a boat trip across the picturesque Lake Arenal as well as a guided trek to the base of the volcano, arriving at the observation point in time for sunset.

traveller reviews

We've just returned from the Costa Rica trip that was organised by World Expeditions and I just wanted to send a
quick note to let you know how much we all enjoyed the holiday. The activities arranged suited us as an active family extremely well, at the same giving us a look at the different areas of the country. We found services to be
excellent, always on time to transport us and the transport used was well chosen (especially the ferry
transfer from Monteverde to La Fortuna). The accommodation in each place was ideal for our family, very clean and
well located. Thanks again for your help and I would have no hesitation recommending this holiday. We are planning
to do more trips offered by World Expeditions in the future!
