Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.
