Costa Rica Mar 25th

We're booked on the Discover Costa Rica tour on Mar 25th, anybody else going on this trip? We're interested to know whether the trip is going ahead without any changes or is it prudent to go?

I'm not travelling on your trip but I went to Costa Rica with Exodus the year before last and it was one of the most memorable holidays. I would take mosquito repellent and long trousers for the rainforest walks just to protect yourself from bites. its one of the cleanest places I had been to - they really look after the environment. I personally wouldn't be worried. we are due on the Borneo trip and that's still going ahead. 

Thanks for your comments Lacky, perhaps we're getting caught in the hype!!

It's difficult for anyone travelling at the moment - so much inconsistency in the information each country is giving. I really hope your holiday does go ahead. Costa Rica exceeded my expectations. It was full on in as we covered a lot of ground but worth it. The Caribbean coast is so relaxed and vibrant. The sea was beautiful. The sloth sanctuary, rainforest walks and river cruises were brilliant. I loved the zip lining too - incredible views! We were lucky to go and see the turtles laying their eggs but we were there in August so not sure when nesting season starts but that was a memory that will stay with me forever. Such wonderful people too. The food Wasn't to everyone's liking but I always found something to eat and ventured out into towns when we could. it is carb heavy and there is limited choice for vegetarians or vegans just to forewarn you. They did try and accommodate as much as possible though. Wishing you an amazing holiday 

Hi Chris. We are also booked on that trip. we fly direct from LGW to San Jose on 24th March with BA, but understand other group members are travelling vis US

now Trump has banned flights from UK to US I reckon that may put our trip into jeopardy, unless its possible to switch flights to the direct flight

sadly we are thinking the trip won't go ahead, so leaving packing and getting currency etc til the last minute. 
fingers crossed I'm wrong...be great to escape all

Hello, we're booked to travel to Costa Rica on 28 March and are also in a state of complete uncertainty. Appreciate that things are changing all the time so it seems impossible to predict what might happen. There don't seem to be any restrictions for Costa Rica yet according to the IATA website so fingers crossed!

Hi Andy, nice to hear from you, sounds like we're on the same flight BA2237 out of Gatwick on the 24th. We've attempted to call Exodus but no success as yet, I see their latest advice is not to call as this impacts them calling people who need rescheduling. I think it's a case of waiting to hear from them (hopefully next week).

hi Chris. Good to know we aren't the only couple on the direct flight. maybe the majority of the group will be, so the decision whether to run the trip will be based on Govt advice and ability to deliver a full itinerary once we are there
