Hi Barbara, it's Angela from Canada. My husband and I did your Zipline tour on Sunday Feb 8. Our week in Costa Rica was wonderful but the highlight was doing the zipline. All the guides were highly skilled, therefore I felt comfortable doing something I've never done before. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody I know visiting your country.
Thank-you Angela and Bill Harachka
Awesome day! One of our favourite adventure in Costa Rica! Canopy, horse riding, the tour guide staffs + lunch were the best! No argument!
Wonderful time here on the Canopy tour! Everything was perfect + we will definetely come back again!
Da es ja keine Zufaelle im Leben gibt, lag dieses Hotel wie vorgesehen auf unserer sponatnanen Reiseroute. Bleiben wollten wir eine Nacht, es wurden drei. Was konnte uns besseres passieren. Nun ieht uns die Sehnsucht neuem in diesem wundervollen Land weiter. Wir werden uns gerne an Sie alle hier erinnern. Wir sind sehr beeindruckt von dem, was Sie hier tun und wie sie es tun.
Family of 5: all had the best of times, special thanks for the organizing of our youngest B.D. on Xmas day, had a real blast on the Canopy and quads!
The staff was so helpful and friendly - always smiling and ready to help :-) The absolute best family vacation - the trip of a lifetime!! Thank you so very, very much.
This was an incredible experience. The Waterfalls were awesome and beautiful. Management and staff were wonderful. We hope to come back again.Thank you.
An experience I will never forget. A truly magestical place.
Thank you for an unforgetable day with you. You did a great job and can be proud of this beautiful country.

Dear Barbara, Dietmar and team,
It was a pleasure, the boys and girls really enjoyed their day and others are waiting for our southbound trip in Oct now!!!We are putting the discount money you gave to Miriam to a donation we are making to an orphanage in Acapulco, as the crew felt others could also benefit from the day they had.We always like to know of places we can help with surplus equipment, old clothes, etc and some cash donations, so if you know anywhere in Costa Rica we can help please let us know.I shall be back in Oct, so look forward to seeing you then,
Kind Regards,Captain Peter Harris, Master ms Westerdam
Hello Barbara / Dietmar,
On behalf of the crew of the Serenade of the Seas, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your warm hospitality. This has definitely been the best tour I have taken since being on ships for the past 6 yrs. And I can say the same for all the crew who were there to enjoy it all day. Your staffs was great and the scenery was absolutely amazing! I only wish everyone was able to go on the 25 Canopy Tour, but obviously with the amount of horses that was not possible. Nonetheless, the 11 Canopy Tour group raved about the facilities and there are absolutely no complaints whatsoever. I will make sure that the next time our ship is in, we will be there once again.Thank you again for an incredible day! Kind Regards, Ricco Colinares - Crew Activities Coordinator GTV Serenade of the Seas
BARBARA AND DIETMAR,
Thanks Again for making the Sun Princess Crew so happy! All they´ve done is rave about how much fun they had on the Canopy Tour. I look forward to the next time we are in Costa Rica. BETSY ALLEN/CREW CLUB V.P.
Hi Dietmar and Barbara,
Sorry this is a few days late - I just wanted to say thank you SO much for a fantastic day! You have one of the most beautiful spots on earth - thank you so much for sharing it with so many people.It means so much to us to be able to do activities together, and being able to do it in such an awesome place is just an added bonus.All the crew loved it!I certainly did, and can't stop talking about it to my family and friends back home. I'm just so disappointed that the Dawn Princess won't be coming your way again soon (at least not while I'm still on board!) so that we can visit again. I'll definitely return to Costa Rica- I have to come and show my husband what I think is the most beautiful county that I have ever seen! Take care.
Regards Brenda Barnetson Doctor Dawn Princess.
Hi Dietmar Barbara,
The whole crew of Statendam would like to thank you for welcoming us to your beautiful resort and your kind hospitality.Everyone who did the canopy tour commented on the breath taking scenery and friendliness of your staff.Even though it was raining while our group did the canopy, we thought it was an added bonus since it depicted what we would picture when we think about rain forests. Also, the horseback riding (my favorite) was so adventurous.I have been on horse riding tours before, but nothing like this one.When we stopped and hiked up the forest and swam underneath the waterfall was so spectacular!I definitely felt like we were on a beautiful lagoon while breathing in the fresh air and splashing in the cool water.Your resort is a place where I would definitely rave about to my family, friends and colleagues!!

Good Evening Dietmar and Barbara,
Our crew members on the Summit had a wonderful time today with you and your team. Thank you so much for your hospitality and your warmth towards all of us. The lunch was spectacular and all your staff working with the Canopy Cables made everyone feels safe and secures the whole time. It was our pleasure to spend the day with you and on our way back through Costa Rica we will make sure to plan another trip to see you. Thanks again for everything. Can't wait to zip line through the waterfalls next time!
PS: All the Crew Members had great things to say, I will provide you with more feedback in a few days. Thanks again.Have A Wonderful Day!

Hi Dietmar / Barbara,
I just wanted to thank you for your help today with the crew from the Zaandam. I have received so many positive comments about the great day that they all had. I hope it was a successful and profitable day for you as well. We will be coming back next year on May 2nd and I would appreciate an email from you at this address to remind me so that we can organize it again. Besides, May 3rd is my birthday so what better way to celebrate it!! Once again, thanks for your offer and for your commitment to providing shipboard crew with a fantastic option in Costa Rica.
Kind regards, Tim Worthley Casino Manager MS Zaandam
Dear Dietmar and Barbara,
Thank you very much for the wonderful day of canopy, horseback riding, swimming, rappelling, rock climbing and trampolining!! We all had a wonderful time, and I am sure at least a few of us will be back to see you again sometime when our next ship comes in to Puntarenas.

Dear Barbara, Dietmar and Daniel,
We (the crew of MS Mona Lisa) would like to thank you for such a wonderful day which charged our batteries for the up coming working days on board. We cannot stop talking about the canopy tour and horseback riding tour... and probably it will take a while until everybody will manage to says his own story about this day. We thank you for welcoming us with such a short notice and organizing everything for us and be sure that one day we will return for more and more excitement.Best wishes for you and your crew, till next time for sure ;-)in the name of the crew

Good Morning Dietmar
Well once again our crew had the time of their lives. As I stood on the gangway welcoming them back to the ship they all said the had the best time ever, fabulous, very exciting, it was so much fun! Those who had been to your resort before said that this new Canopy tour over the waterfalls with horseback riding was such a great adventure. A whole day adventure in the beautiful Costa Rican Forrest. I have never heard so many wonderful comments from any tour I have done anywhere in the many ports we visit world wide. Also next call many have said they want to go back for the day again, so we'll be in touch! I personally thank you for the well planned and very safe operation you have.Wishing you all the best until the next time we meet.
Kind regards, Robin Walker Team Activities Coordinator
thanks for a great day. All of us had an incredible time and cant wait to get back and do it again!! Your team was very friendly and patient and the food was fantastic. Thank you :)

I just want to tell you about Hotel Vista Golfo in Costa Rica. It is a small hotel up in the rain forest - a really great place. They offer horse - riding to waterfalls or the cloud forest, canopy jumps, lunch (GREAT LUNCH) it's really an excellent day.....you should get a group of you together and go and check them out. It is owned by a German couple...... Barbara is the wife and she does all the organising. I really would recommend that you go up there and check them out...... they also have a website where you can check them out. They are really crew orientated and will take good care of you! Happy sailing!

Hallo Barbara und Dietmar,
wir sind zurück an Bord und möchten uns bei Euch nochmal für den wunderschönenTag bedanken. Es war ein Weihnachtstraum!!! Wir werden uns lange an die schönen Stunden erinnern, freuen uns schon auf die Bilder, die wir gemacht haben und haben wahrscheinlich auch morgen ganz schön mit Muskelkater vom Reiten zu kämpfen. Wir wünschen Euch noch ein schönes Weihnachstfest.
Ganz liebe Grüsse vonMarianne, Silke, Noreen und Franziska - MS Columbus
Thank you for the wonderful day yesterday, both riding and doing the canopy tour. I had a great day. I look forward to my next visit to your wonderful place, and I have recommended you to some other crew friends on the Harmony.
All the best, Robert Yacko Crystal Harmony singer
We are writing to thank you once again for a marvelous day. when our ship (the Vision of the Seas) was in port in Puntarenas. Your hospitality, activities and food made for a wonderfully exciting/relaxing day. We loved zipping along the cables, and your chef is fantastic - a memorable meal!! The sunset was spectacular and it was hard to pull ourselves away when it was time to leave. We hope to see you again in the future, and we will certainly pass along your name and info for future crew members to enjoy your establishment. Thanks, and all the best!
Best Regards, Bob Osborne and Moira Malone Art Auction Team Vision of the Seas
Thanks again for a fantastic day....(my body is still recovering!!!) We all enjoyed ourselves so much. You provide a great service for us. (It is so nice to be able to get out and away from the xyxyxyxy as I am sure you can imagine-if only all ports had people like you in them!!!!) Take care Barbara and kind regards to both you and your husband!
