_ It is really not an easy job organizing tours to paradise - there are many hours spent planning the perfect experience together with our customers, booking the trip, providing support throughout the trip, and collecting feedback once the costumers have returned home. All the hard work is worth it at the end of the day because of posts like the one pictured on the right (taken from out Facebook fan-page) that make it all worth it to us!
Christina wrote me about traveling to the Caribbean for a week around New Years, one of the peak travel times to Costa Rica. This was quite a last minute request, and the Finca Rio Perla staff were leaving the farm for that weekend (they need a vacation as well!) and would not be able to accommodate Christina. At this late date (3-4 days), it would also be near impossible for me to tailor a trip for her, process her payment and book all of her accommodations and activities in a timely manner. Nevertheless, I answered all the questions about concerns she had about traveling to Costa Rica, and helped her out with finding places to stay and activities to do during her trip that was to welcome 2012 on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
I received a thank you note from her, and understood that she enjoyed the trip and had tons of fun and experiences. I did not charge her anything for sharing the info with her - but I did ask her to share her experience with us with others - and the review above really made my day.
Thank you Christina - I am glad we could help you greet the New Year in paradise!
