Had it not been for my six months in the Falklands I would not have been able to afford this trip without resorting to help from Mr Credit Card. So far this is the most expensive trip I have been on, over £1600 not including spending money. That is seriously big money for a (well) below the national average earner like me! In six months however I managed to save £1900 .. which is £1900 more than I have ever managed to save in my entire life, that paid for this trip and more.

This was going to be my wildlife trip of a lifetime (until the next one that is) and I was not disappointed!


My first ever sighting of an Iguana .. heaven!


And my first ever sighting of a crocodile, worth the money for that alone!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:More wildlife than you can shake a stick at
  • Cons:In Costa Rica it rains a LOT!
  • In a nutshell:Just try shaking a stick at all the wildlife .. you just can't do it!
