Any heads up on the Costa Rica Unplugged tours?

9 May 2012 Shanice asked


Wanted to know if there's any others who have been on the tour, how did they like it and is it a recommend tour?

    Anyone planning on heading on the trip in November? Buddy and I are thinking it would be idea…

    I am not sure whether I go in November or in January… I think in January there are not so many raining days! @ CanadianNIK: the January trip starts on the 26th, so I think there is no earlier date, around the 8th is too early..:)

    I am still undecided – I want to go on vacation sooner than later, but the weather looks nicer in January….decisions, decisions!

    I’m thinking about doing the one starting Feb 16th… not yet decided. I need to plan my vacations for next year, and I have to save up some money first!

    I am about to book the 26 of January trip in 2013. When do the others arrive in San José? I would arrive on the 25 th in the evening, at about 9 pm. Probably anyone wants to share a taxi or transfer to the hotel?

  • 20 Sep 2012 Sinem said


    We fly into San Jose on Jan 25 and arrive around 7 PM.

  • 20 Sep 2012 Alex said


    So there’s a few Canadians doing this tour, eh? =P Now i’m thinking about doing the Jan 26th tour!
    BTW, I’m from Vancouver!

  • 22 Sep 2012 Conitki4life said


    Yup I am thinking there will be a few Canadians on the trip as we need to escape our winters! I have not booked my flights yet but i know it will be some time on the 25th of january.

    I’ve also booked the 26th Jan tour now :) I am so excited :)

  • 5 Oct 2012 TarafromNS said


    I am booked for January 26 as well! Is anyone traveling around afterwards? I am thinking of flying to Nicaragua and/or Panama for a few days at the end of the trip.

  • 1 Nov 2012 Conitki4life said


    Hey everyone! I just booked my flights:) Hey Steffi: I arrive in San Jose around the same time as you 9:30 ish. I would definatley share a cab to the hotel with you if your still up for it.
    Getting so excited!

  • 2 Nov 2012 Steffi said


    hey, do you want to share the hotel transfer with me, it costs $27 for the van, so it is $13,5 for each of us. is that okay for you?

  • 3 Nov 2012 Conitki4life said


    Sounds great! I am totally willing to share the cost of the hotel transfer :) I guess when the trip gets closer, we can exchange more accurate flight information so we know when and where to meet up to go to the van.
