I'll be on the Sept. 18th trip, flying out of JFK. This is my first trip wit RS. Would like to hear from anyone else who is going on this trip or has already completed this trip.
What do you wish you knew before you went!
Elaine W Jun 25, 2015 at 04:39 PM

This is a lovely, well planned trip. The only thing I wished I had was a better pair of binoculars. Bring a good water bottle and don't let yourself get dehydrated. I hope you have a wonderful time!


Mary Vanderpool Jun 12, 2015 at 04:54 PM

I'll be on the July 14th trip. Anyone connecting in Dallas Flt 986? Looking forward to a great adventure!

We are Joan and Jim Woodruff. This Exploring Natural Wonders will be our first Road Scholar experiance. We are scheduled for the July 14 start date. We are semi retired and live in Indianapolis, IN. We're looking forward to getting to know any other participants in our program.


JACQUELINE BECTON May 30, 2015 at 12:00 PM

I live in upstate New York and I will be starting this trip on 09/08/15. I'm looking forward to meeting my fellow travelers and getting any hints and tips from prior adventurers.

When I was on this trip in February, I was more interested in heat in every hotel on the Caribbean side, especially at the Gulf coast, Arenal, and the last resort above 7,000 ft. The RS selected hotels in Costa Rica are equivalent to the US or 3-4 star hotels in Switzerland or Germany and are NOT to be compared to a third world country.


Ronald Travis May 16, 2015 at 11:02 AM

Some hotels don't have A/C, will that be a problem in January?

Since much of Costa Rica is explored, it is necessary to travel big distances by bus. However, you will experience Costa Rica fully.in May 2014 the group was in a new location approximately every two days, figure 5 or 6 bus trips, which in themselves were entertaining, as landscape and vegetation changed from place to place.
Don't miss this trip.
