Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Silvia and her team at Ecogetaways goes above and beyond on every little detail. I have worked with event planners in many countries to hold an annual week-long event of 50+ international participants, and when we brought this event to Costa Rica this year, Ecogetaways came highly recommended and our experience working with them was absolutely better than any other company we have worked with before.

Communicating with Silvia to plan the intense, complex, participant logistics was a breeze in the months leading up to the event. I was impressed by her attention to detail, in-country connections, and ability to negotiate the best rates and offer the best local recommendations taking into account the needs of our group.

She troubleshoots issues before they ever arise, based on her tremendous experience and thoughtful approach to her work. And you can feel great working with her, knowing that Ecogetaways is an eco-friendly company that also has a non-profit arm which promotes sustainability and recycling among local businesses. Ecogetaways helps ensure that when you do return to Costa Rica (and you will want to!) the country looks just as naturally beautiful as when you left.

Muchas gracias, Ecogetaways!!!

Ecogetaways led the planning and logistics of a 50+ person event that took place in two locations, in Guanacaste and San Jose, during the month of October. Their work before and during the event was exceptional and they tackled unexpected challenges wonderfully. Silvia and her team's recommendations for activities, restaurants and tours were spot on and the support they provided to us was great.

We really wish to thank you for the wonderful trip we made !
We had a great time !
The hotels were all very good , but Nayara Springs is the best : this is an
amazing place , superdeluxe and the best jacuzzi I ever saw !
Flor blanca is something special too, the living room and bathroom are in
open air , so you live outside ! The hotel is next to a beautiful beach with
only few people.
Gaia has a very good restaurant and cute swimming pool , perhaps a little
bit too commercial..........
The area of Manuel Antnio in general is more commercial ; I think because
there are a lot of tourists there . Also the national park is crowded , but
nice , a lot of animals to see and good guides .
The guides and drivers were all very friendly and tried to explain a lot
about the country and the animals.
About the tours we made : Tortuguero, Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo ,
Arenal volcano, Hanging Bridges , Volcano Poas , Waterfall gardens
........:everything different and good organised ! We found the hot springs
the least pleasant , but that was because we had our private jacuzzi at
Nayara , we were spoiled .......
I think , this is the best trip we ever made

Thumbs up!!! Just lay back, relax and let them handle as EcoG will manage everything with high professionalism and outstanding kindness. This was the case for me when I took the very wise decision to have them organize my 3 week long land and sea trip through Costa Rica and Coco Island.
And they will even manage to surprise you on the way !
Enjoy!
A very happy customer :)
