The tour was very well organized and the guide was both good and helpful. The coach was comfortable but there was at times a great deal of time spent driving from place to place. A big disappointment was when we were told by our guide that the "thrilling adventure gliding through the jungle canopy on a rainforest aerial tram with... More

Our hotels, from the Intercontinental in San Jose, to the Lomos Del Volcan cabins in Fortuna, to the J.W. Marriott in Guanacaste to the Hotel San Bada outside Manuel Antonio National Park were outstanding. Every tour, including the two river cruises, the aerial tram, and particularly, the visit to the Poas Volcano, and the Hanging Bridges in the Arenal Volcano... More

I traveled with a young workmate April 7-14 and she described it as one of the best vacations she had ever had. It was indeed an excellent experience, in no small part because of the contribution of our tour director, Carlos. Highly knowledgeable and informative, he provided for everything the group of thirty could want with care and humor, from... More

Just got back from a fabulous week with Caravn tours in Panama. The downtown hotel the 1st 2 nites was "so-so" but the rain forest hotel in Gamboa and the beach hotel Playa Bonita were fantastic. Just so happened that President Obana was staying in the same hotel for the Pan-Amer conference. Felt very safe! Loved the history and the... More

Just returned from Costa Rica on a tour with Caravan Tours. We were very surprised and delighted with the tour company from the pickup at the airport to the drop off at the end of the trip, and everything in-between. Our guide Marta was absolutely excellent. She was so knowledgeable and organized in every detail of the trip. The hotels... More

Caravan covered all the attractions and events in Panama including a transit of the locks which drop ships 85 feet from Gatun Lake on the Atlantic side to the Pacific Ocean. The itinerary was full without being exhausting. The food at the hotels and restaurants was very good and safe with no GI problems to worry about. The other travelers... More

This was my second trip with Caravan, and Yani, our tour director, was expectional. She did everything that was on the itinerary plus more. If we had gaps of times between destinations, she would take us to different locales and provide more information of the area. Ricardo, our driver, was also very happy to more locations to show us more... More
