On a recommendation from a coworker my friend and I embarked on Caravan's Natural Paradise Tour in March. Since we knew someone who had taken the tour we assumed that we would have a lot of insight as to what to expect. I've since learned that with traveling, it's all about what perspective you have. With that said, I will... More

Racquel, the tour guide, did a wonderful job in managing the rather large (44) group. She was very enthusiastic, well informed, and obviously well suited to her job. Hotels were upscale, food was good. Also, hats off to Ricardo who drove us from one end of the isthmus to the other. Caravan provides good value.

We just returned from a 8 day tour of beautiful Costa Rica through Caravan Tours. The itinerary took us thru 6 of the 7 provinces on an air conditioned coach and covered over 900 miles. Our driver, Mungo did a masterful job on the mountain roads and we felt safe in his hands. Our Tour Director, Rebecca G is the... More

This is the first trip we have taken with Caravan Tours and did so on recommendations from family. The itinerary was well put together and the tour guide, Raquel Pflug, and our bus driver, Jorge, were excellent. Raquel is very knowledgeable about the area and the sites to see and I believe that she was instrumental in helping put the... More

Yani Espinioza was a wonderful guide on our Panama trip in April, 2015. The whole experience was such a positive and one not to be missed if you are considering a trip in Panama. This tour is so much better than a cruise that goes through the canal in a HUGE ship. Yani helped made every day special. This is... More

Pura Vida!! My wife and I have never taken an organized tour like this before...and Costa Rica was a new destination for us. Costa Rica is paradise and Caravan gets an A+!! I'll start by saying we were the youngest couple by far on the trip (we're 38 and celebrating our 15th anniversary). But that did not matter! We had... More

I have just returned from a 9-day Caravan tour in Costa Rica. I was thrilled with my tour. The tour director, Ignacio, and driver, Marcos, were both excellent. The accommodations were very good, the food was good, and the itinerary provided the right mix of flora, fauna, culture and relaxation.

This was the best Tour -Excursion I have ever been on. Indeed, I do not see how Caravan was able to do this for the price. I saw this Tour advertised in Sky Magazine and signed up. A really terrific nine days. I took my granddaughter (18) as a gift and she was the youngest person on the tour. She... More

We so enjoyed our tour of Panama with Caravan Tours. The hotel accommodations were superb and the buffet meals provided ample choices of delicious foods. The best part of the tour was the director, Yani, who was very helpful to all and extremely knowledgeable of Panama, its history and sites. The bus was comfortable and the driver, Davide, provided ample... More

Our family took the Caravan tour to Guatemala in April 2015 and I highly recommend it. Our tour guide, Virginie/Virginia, was phenomenal; her talks, comments, stories were humorous, in depth, fascinating, whether she introduced us to the country, the people, the culture, Mayan hieroglyphics, or the history of coffee. The hotel accommodations (4 different hotels) were superb (one was set... More
