Raquel & Ladee responded to the variety of eating issues,( vegetarian, extreme healthy, limited food acceptance) of various family members and performed well. the $30/ day/ per member was accurate. thanks Diana. John described activity options accurately. we ate lunch away twice, reinforcing the excellence of Raquel's efforts. The Zip line-waterfall outing was fun. the surfing beach blew out, (big waves/wind), kids enjoyed horseback ride. I did not find the Costa Rica guide books until the last day. I recommend future guests pick up one with maps of the area before the trip. Our family asks lots of questions about local issues,(economy, farming, geology, history). John is a very organized, hospitable host with limited knowledge of the economy. I expected more.
