Spent an exhilarating day with Calypso Adventures! From the immediate response to my last-minute booking, the pick up service, organized tour, detailed amenities, and all-around fun conversation; I felt like I spent the day with a friend. The day felt personalized, no detail was left to chance - healthy snacks (but also beer!), towel, bug spray, sunscreen, water; we didn’t need a single thing all day. Being able to support a woman-owned, Afro Caribbean-owned business was icing on the cake. The day ended with an authentic Costa Rican dinner and now I’m off to bed exhausted and happy.
