Pat and her colleague, Jean Riekers, recently traveled to Costa Rica on an escorted Tauck Tour and shared their experiences on our Travel Maestro blog.

Costa Rica is one of the most biologically diverse areas of the world where visitors can experience nature in its many forms. The good news is that you don’t have to rough it to visit this eco-paradise.

Our Tauck tour group was comprised of Boomer-aged guests – mostly retired professionals who were well-traveled, educated and interesting group companions. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable and was able to smoothly handle any hiccups that inevitably occur.

The accommodations were perfect for each area visited and the food was very good. Tauck did a wonderful job overall and we would be happy to travel with them again. For families with younger members, Tauck Bridges is the Tauck brand that specializes in multi-generational travel.
